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)
What, you mean again? But I called them off the last time! Elcool (talk)(contribs) 21:05, 8 Oct 2005 (UTC)
Just for the record, I was looking. But I didn't really see anything I understood. I'm pretty sure I didn't see any ninjas, though. (And yeah, that was prettydanglate, especially for EST; don't ask me why I was awake!) —notstrongorbad 21:19, 8 Oct 2005 (UTC)
Don't forget pirates. Ninjas and Pirates. Well, looking forward to it. See all y'alls on the 1.5 flipside. Thunderbird 21:21, 8 Oct 2005 (UTC)


A few images will not display correctly, but fixing them is simple. They just need to be re-uploaded.


Steps to reupload image:

  1. Find broken image
  2. Go to image description page
  3. Click on direct image link. In the example to the right, this is "ZipZap_OldSchool.png".
  4. Save this image to your computer.
  5. Click on the "Upload a new version of this file" link on the image description page.
  6. Browse to the location that you saved the image and re-upload the file, making sure to click the "Save file" button when the upload warning appears.

Thanks. -- Tom 10:20, 9 October 2005 (UTC)
