Have something to say about my edits to an article? Say it on that article's talk page, not here.


Regarding Comments to MSG

Dear Jpatokal,

I have personally experienced many problems with MSG which is why I was trying to warn others.

However I apologize for changing your statement, I will leave things as they are for the time being and hope that will be an end to the matter.

Good luck and thanks for your work on here.

All anons are blocked?

Just tried to make an anonymous edit and it said I was blocked. It gave an IP of and said CJensen was the blocker with a block number of 277. Not my IP and the block log looks like Peter Fitzgerald blocked that IP. Is it blocking all anons? -- OldPine 07:43, 21 February 2008 (EST)

(Answering self) How the heck should I know, OldPine? Why do you ask me stuff I have no idea about? -- OldPine 09:12, 21 February 2008 (EST)
Uh oh. Peter here, I just logged out to test this. It seems that all anons are turning up as this one 172 anon. Yikes! I blocked 172 & unwittingly reverted every single anon change made yesterday, on the belief that it was a vandal! What the heck is going on? -- 14:42, 21 February 2008 (EST)

Hi Jpatokal, thank you for the welcome :) Jamboo 05:21, 21 March 2008 (EDT)


Hi! I hope, you remember me. I'm Dorgan, from hu.wikitravel. And I have a bot. I want to run my bot in hungarian wikitravel, but I've got a problem. The bot works with hu:Special:Allmessages. But the translation file is wrong, and when I open this page, I get the hu:Special:Prefixindex page. You can see: Prefixindex is the same as Allmessages. What can I do now? And my other question is: can I, or how can I or anybody get the bureaucrat-flag in hu.wikitravel? Thanks for your attention! Regards, Dorgan 13:22, 21 March 2008 (EDT)

Oh, sorry, I'm wrong. hu:Special:Allpages and hu:Special:Prefixindex is the same...... :). And the bot works with allpages too. Dorgan 05:24, 22 March 2008 (EDT)

Unfortunatelly the problem is still there. If you get hu:Special:Allpages and en:Special:Allpages you can see the difference between the two pages. The translation problem is in the MessagesHu.php in the wikitravel server. And the bot couldn't work with the wrong hu:Special:Allpages. The MessagesHu.php should be up to date. Dorgan 14:21, 22 March 2008 (EDT)

Please, see: [1] and [2] : it's a translation error. Dorgan 06:17, 23 March 2008 (EDT)

nearest attractions again

Jani, sorry for bothering--but I'd like to come to some sort of consensus in Wikitravel talk:Accommodation listings#nearest attractions. As you changed the meaning [3] of my original template, could you reply in [4] where we started discussing it? --DenisYurkin 11:13, 22 March 2008 (EDT)
