Nifty stuff

The "Edit diff." feature sounds fortuitous. I'm not sure I understood the permalink business, though. —notstrongorbad 06:37, 8 Oct 2005 (UTC)

For instance, the current revision of the fanstuff Main Page is rev 119031. With 1.4 and earlier, it is not possible to have a link that would always display what was on the page at the time that you viewed it, as the current link in 1.4 just has an oldid of 0. That link will always take you to the current version, which may have been updated since the time you linked to the article. This is important when someone would want to cite an article for research and so forth. -- Tom 07:03, 8 Oct 2005 (UTC)
I'm looking forward to the 'Print' tab I've heard about. I'm always up for a new tab. And the move log sounds kinda nifty. I am gonna miss that maintenance page though, *sniff*. I fondly remember searching for double redirects. Is the upgrade probably gonna be finished by Monday morning, NA time? Or are we probably gonna be late updating the Wiki for the Monday update?

When no one was looking late last night, I did a complete dry run and everything worked as expected. It didn't take more than a few hours, and I think I'll be able to shave a few minutes off that because of some of the prepping I've been doing. I expect that everything will be done by Monday barring anything drastic happening. Who knows, I could have a dozen ninjas bust in through my window and I'd have to fight them off instead. -- Tom 21:01, 8 Oct 2005 (UTC)
