Autohide

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)

Links

"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

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

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)
