Hiya Evan. I miss your constant input to the site. Would you please comment on the above topic on VFD. Seems to be a conflict in policy. Once again, to you and the wife. GREAT IDEA on Wikitravel. Hopefully, it will be around, long after you and I are gone. Best wishes!!! 2old 14:39, 15 October 2007 (EDT)


Vandalism policy?

I don't know about you folks (I'm sending the same message to several), but I for one am getting sick and tired of the intentional vandalism that's going on here. I am trying to start a discussion on Wikitravel talk:Community policies as to whether something more forceful needs to be in place to deal with it. Historically, we have bent far over backwards to avoid punitive action against vandals and have simply gone in and cleaned up the messes they create. However, the frequency of vandalism is growing, and I am not convinced that we are doing Wikitravel a service by tolerating it. This said, I'm not at all sure what the "right" response is.

I'd appreciate your participation in the discussion on that talk page. Let's see if we can come up with something appropriate. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 11:40, 19 October 2007 (EDT)

Cross-lingual mediawiki typo

Hi Evan, I hope your anniversary went well!

Would you please take a look at shared:Tech:Typo_in_recent_changes_message. It is a very simple bug to fix, but it requires sysop-level access across multiple language versions—for some of which you are the sole admin. Fixing it only requires following the mediawiki links on the bug report page and replacing the existing text with:

Below {{PLURAL:$1|is '''1''' change|are the last '''$1''' changes}} in the {{PLURAL:$2|day|last '''$2''' days}}, as of $3.

Thanks! --Peter Talk 03:00, 25 October 2007 (EDT)

Bot

Hi Evan! Would you please take a look at this page. I've been waiting your answer for some months. Can I run my bot? Thanks: Dorgan 06:24, 31 October 2007 (EDT)

wikitravel : United Kingdom - 9 cities list

Hi there Evan, I have recently added to the discussion on the United Kingdom entry, regarding the 9 cities list ( under "the old city problem" headed "new for 2007" ). I have asked for a consensus on a new proposal to make the 9 cities list more accurately represent the previous consensus which was to base the 9 cities on visitor numbers. So far the majority have been For this change. There appears to be lots of people in support of the proposal. I have messaged some of the other users who were vocal in participation before, however for many of them they have not been active since 2006, which means chances are they will not reply. Also, it is worth noteing that for the current list of 9 cities, there was ever any concensus, and ironically, my recent proposal surpasses what was previously proposed in terms of number of people supporting it. Id therefore like to ask you to contribute to the discussion with a view to alter/amend the list using ur experience. --Daniel robinson 15:12, 3 November 2007 (EDT)

MediaWiki OpenID extension

Hi Evan. I have an issue getting the OpenID extension to work on my local wiki. I want to add proper i18n for it (not that difficult), and I need to know if things still work as expected after my code changes :)

Setup (following ./README in the extension directory):

  • OS: Windows Xp with Wampserver
  • Application server:
  • PHP: 5.2.3 (openssl extension added)
  • MySQL: 5.0.41-community
  • MediaWiki: 1.12alpha (r27750) (SVN head)
  • OpenID: SVN (no other extensions installed)
    • ran sql script
    • LocalSettings.php: require_once("$IP/extensions/OpenID/OpenID.php"); (at the bottom)
    • php-openid-2.0.0-rc5 (installed in D:\mediawiki\phase3\extensions\OpenID\)
    • php.ini: include_path = ".;c:\php\includes;D:\mediawiki\phase3\extensions\OpenID" (had to add the second path to make Special:OpenIDLogin display.

Now I get this error after I fill in an OpenID URL in Special:OpenIDLogin and submit it:

Fatal error: Define Auth_OpenID_RAND_SOURCE as null to continue with an insecure random number generator.
in D:\mediawiki\phase3\extensions\OpenID\Auth\OpenID\CryptUtil.php on line 52

I am not an experienced programmer; more like a monkey that learned a small PHP trick ;). I hope you can help with it. Please drop me a line on my Betawiki talk page. Cheers! siebrand 17:50, 22 November 2007 (EST)
