Wikitravel Extra: Sidebar interwiki link[edit]

I have added two MediaWiki items as a test on to the swedish MediaWiki Sidebar. The items are MediaWiki:Extra-url and MediaWiki:Extrapage. This kind of iw link corresponds with the way we iw link to Shared from the various language versions. However, it does not work as intended, so I assume there is some button which needs to be pressed by a developer. May we have it seen to? Or, if it isn't implemented yet, well... have it implemented? With a sidebar link implemented, the traffic on Extra will increase. Riggwelter 05:15, 1 April 2007 (EDT)

Mailing List - How do I get off it?[edit]

When I created a Wikitravel account I must have asked to be sent updates by email. I now get messages from [email protected] that I would like to stop. Efforts so far have not succeeded. The link at the bottom of each message takes me to a Word 66 Extra page with an access denied message. Hunting around the Wikitravel site, I have not been able to find shut this off. Can someone point me to a way to stop these messages? Thanks --KenWalker 14:32, 16 March 2008 (EDT)

Could you forward one to me at [email protected] so that I can figure out what you're trying to say? -- Colin 18:18, 16 March 2008 (EDT)
For those playing along at home, Ken was receiving notifications from Wikitravel Extra. There was an unsubscribe link at the bottom of his email which pointed to a nonexistent page at World66. -- Colin 18:46, 16 March 2008 (EDT)
Hmm, is this similar to this a while back? How did he start receiving them in first place, I didn't know we even had mailing lists like that. Sounds kinda icky – cacahuate talk 00:29, 17 March 2008 (EDT)
Were these the notifications modifiable via "Extra -> My account -> My notification settings?" --Peter Talk 14:39, 17 March 2008 (EDT)
We're looking into this. Redondo 18:34, 24 March 2008 (EDT)
Can somebody send me a copy of the email in question (ksours at internetbrands com) KevinSours 19:22, 24 March 2008 (EDT)
Done. -- Colin 00:04, 25 March 2008 (EDT)
Dude your email filters out attachments. Do you have a real email address? -- Colin 00:19, 25 March 2008 (EDT)
Right. Its doesn't block attachments in general but it does block anything with a .elm extension (or whatever the standard Microsoft email as an attachment extension is). I'm not entirely clear on why. Can you try zipping it or changing the extension name? I not, I'll ask around and find an alternative. KevinSours 13:03, 25 March 2008 (EDT)
Just get a GMail account. -- Colin 13:36, 25 March 2008 (EDT)
