After about another day or two, I'm going to re-enable autohide for all users for this announcements box, if there are no objections. --Briess 03:03, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

Well, I'd still suggest the current method. However, if we do re-enable autohide, do it through adding importScript('User:blahblahblahblah'); in common.js rather than adding "collapsed". That way we can still use the update div to force show the box. Emi [T] 05:21, 7 April 2010 (UTC)
Indeed, that was the plan. I pared down the announcements size a bit, maybe that's a bit better. We'll see.--Briess 07:17, 7 April 2010 (UTC)
I'm setting it so autohide is enabled for all users now. --Briess 17:10, 23 April 2010 (UTC)


"Please create links with {{L|Page name}} instead of [[Page name]] if the link is for the same version as the article. Please do not update existing 40d links (blue or red) with this method." - What exactly, then, is the point of using the template at all? Why use it only for new pages but not for existing pages? --Quietust 13:59, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

Actually, it was because it was much easier to program EmiBot to follow links of the [[]] format. So it was about the redlink tagging. Now that they've all been tagged, the message no longer matters -- and once I get my main machine up and running, EmiBot will be changing all the links back. Emi [T] 05:21, 7 April 2010 (UTC)
It looks like I will have beaten you to it - my bot is currently running through the 40d namespace and fixing all of the links to use {{L}}. --Quietust 16:34, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

I added a template (Template:Category) a few days ago for category tags along the same lines as the {{L}} template. I think that it would really help with some of the category organization issues that I have seen complaints about. I wasn't really sure where to post about it, so would you mind taking a look to see if it is something you feel is worthwhile to add to the announcements section? I would appreceiate the feedback. --Soy(T-C) 22:28, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

Copy/pasting from 40d[edit]

I think we need to readd the "Please do NOT copy/paste old articles into new namespace unless you screen them for accuracy." notice, since people are still doing it (in some cases, apparently quite deliberately). --Quietust 20:48, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

Agreed, and Emi already took care of it. --Briess 21:00, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

Page requests[edit]

It looks like Loci created this page as an alternative to posting requests on an admin's talk page. Could we add this to the announcements so new/anonymous users know where to look? --Lethosor (talk) 01:08, 3 April 2013 (UTC)
