March 23 2006[edit]

--"Added a missing apostrophe"? Cute. --Brody

I figure if I'm reverting something, I'd might as well fix what catches my eye while I'm at it. Besides, I'm found of apostrophes in their proper places, and should encourage them. :) -- Sine

Spellcheck thanks[edit]

Thanks for the spellcheck, Sine :3 --Mikael Grizzly, the communicative, though not ortography master cougar

Confusion about category reorder in Leam and category changes in Sacfurs Status[edit]

I appreciate random quality edits, but I didn't see your logic in reordering the categories in Leam (esp. if it's not alphabetical or by priority {which it is now}). Also, I don't think that Sacfurs Status really belongs in Social Groups or California. It's relevant to Websites, and I'm not even sure it's a good idea to have Sacfurs Status showing up underneath Sacfurs -- it's redundant. Before applying categories, you may want to be certain that the article in question should show up in the category listing. Leam 21:41, 26 March 2006 (UTC)

Wikifur's URL has changed ticker[edit]


WikiFur's URL has changed, don't forget to update your bookmarks!

thinger along the top of pages isn't grammatical. I'd suggest making it two sentences. (has changed. Don't forget) but a semi-colon instead of a comma would also work. -- Sine 18:34, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

Good call! Feel free to edit it yourself. Oh, and welcome to the admin team. :-) --GreenReaper(talk) 18:46, 27 March 2006 (UTC)
Done. Thank you! I'm honored. Anything I should read through? Do I suddenly get to make SuperAdminPower statements about, oh, category order? ;) -- Sine 19:47, 27 March 2006 (UTC)
Probably the best resources are Wikipedia's pages on administrators and their administrators' how-to guide.
Administrative power on WikiFur is much more of a "techncial ability to do things" than a "right to dictate how things should be done". I gave it to you because you had a need to perform actions requiring admin powers, and because you seem to be someone with a history of good contributions who wouldn't go on a deletion spree or ban half the Internet by mistake. It doesn't grant more (or less) right to decide how pages, categories and the like should be organized - they're community decisions. You just have the ability to implement more of these decisions yourself.
Of course, if you decide to be bold and nobody says anything, all well and good. If someone disagrees with something you do, they'll contact you, and you should try to work together to figure out a way in which you can both be happy. --GreenReaper(talk) 20:23, 27 March 2006 (UTC)
I don't get to ban half the internet? Or make rules from on high? Darn!
Thanks for the links. I'd found my way to one of them, but I'll give them both a good reading-through.
Regarding category order and suchlike very general questions--is there somewhere already in place to discuss broad topics? I recall seeing a lot getting worked out on individual talk pages. -- Sine 01:01, 28 March 2006 (UTC)
Ow.. my grammar. ;_; --Nidonocu - talk Nidonocu 23:14, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

Visibility of talk pages[edit]

I had been paying very little attention to the Namespace: dropdown at Recent changes, but having properly noticed it, I'm wondering if a prominent "Recent talk changes" might not be a useful thing--and easily done with a link to Recentchanges&namespace=1 -- Sine 22:14, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

That does indeed seem useful. That sort of thing could replace the permanently out-of-date "recent discussions" section in Community Central. --GreenReaper(talk) 09:26, 31 March 2006 (UTC)
