Contents

DE main page?

Would you scroll down on the DE main page to the bottom? Is there a reason why a picture of cake is on the bottom? -- Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 08:02, 2 July 2006 (EDT)

At least in Firefox, the cake appears inside the Logbuch section. It's right next to a logbook entry that says, "7. Oktober 2005: Happy Birthday, Wikitravel! Die deutschsprachige Wikitravel-Ausgabe wird 1 Jahr alt. " I think that means something like: "Happy Birthday, Wikitravel! The de: Wikitravel version is one year old."
I guess that the layout is messing with your IE7 again. Can you send me a screenshot? --Evan 11:42, 2 July 2006 (EDT)
Here is a screen shot with the cake in it and another without the cake. The latter image shows the October 7th date in the log book without the clip art image. The first screen shot shows the cake, but you are unable to see any other part of the main page. Notice the scroll bar, because it indicates the main page is rather long. -- Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 19:15, 3 July 2006 (EDT)

Time (it)

The problem of the +2 hours is not a user-settings-related problem, because when the user is logged in, the time is OK. The problem is when the user is not logged in. An exemple:

Now it's 11:32. When I log in, allright: 11:32. If I log out, I see 13:32. This happens, for exemple, in the "recent changes" page. Dennis 05:33, 3 July 2006 (EDT)

It functions now, but, in the edit pages (only in those pages), i get this error (php error):

Warning: date() [function.date]: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. Please use the date.timezone setting, the TZ environment variable or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We had to select 'UTC' because your platform doesn't provide functionality for the guessing algorithm in /var/www/wikitravel/mw/includes/Parser.php on line 3411

MediaWiki:NewArticletext

Seffen M requested that the nifty new page MediaWiki template be used on DE. I've copied and pasted the DE templates into Vorgabe:? so they'll be easy to find and then rewrote the En text so it can be used on DE. Can you add that MediaWiki template to DE? -- Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 19:21, 3 July 2006 (EDT)

Oops. See my Sandbox#Tinker space for the potential DE text. -- Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 19:22, 3 July 2006 (EDT)
I'd actually like someone to go over the text to make sure the translation is right. I couldn't find my thesaurus or DE dictionary so I used an internet translator. The links, however, are all correct. -- Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 19:34, 3 July 2006 (EDT)
...almost! You had "en" instead of "de", but I corrected it. You can see the new article at de:MediaWiki:Newarticletext. Let me know if it needs corrections. Steffen can fix it too, by the way. --Evan 19:55, 3 July 2006 (EDT)
Oops. Thanks for catching that. If there's a problem with it hopefully someone will tell you or me and we can fix the translation. -- Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 11:34, 4 July 2006 (EDT)

PL Administrator

Since JanSlupski hasn't been active on PL for going on three months would you have any issue with pl:Osoba:Adam Dziura being nominated by myself? It would be great to have an administrator whose fairly active and can speak Polish. Also, since he did translate a lot of the MediaWiki templates for you I think he's proven himself dedicated. Are there any issues you thought would hinder his ability to work fairly and in accordance with Wikitravel policies? See pl:Wikitravel:Administratorzy -- Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 03:32, 5 July 2006 (EDT)

Trademark "Wikitravel"

I'd like to know whether "Wikitravel" is registered as trademark or just an unregistered one. For what countries is it a (registered) trademark? Do you know http://www.wikitravel.it ? -- Hansm 07:12, 5 July 2006 (EDT)

I think the trademark registration is happening right now, and it's supposed to be international. Thanks for the pointer to .it; I've forwarded it to IB's lawyers. --Evan 08:34, 5 July 2006 (EDT)
Weirdly, the wikitravel.it site doesn't seem to be using any of our content though. They also don't much believe in the CC license: "©2006 Wikitravel. E' vietata la riproduzione anche parziale". Then again, it's kind of them to hand over the copyright to Internet Brands like that ;) Jpatokal 09:19, 5 July 2006 (EDT)
