What is the use for this Mediawiki:Something page? Seablue 13:14, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

When you're next editing a page, take a look directly below the "Save Page" button... Adam [ talk ] 13:37, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
I know, put how did you get it there? Seablue 14:29, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
If this page exists, its contents are shown whenever a page is edited. It's hard-coded into the MediaWiki software, like all the stuff in this namespace. Adam [ talk ] 14:43, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
Ah, it's one f the "Wiki knows this" things. So the wiki has code telling it to look here, and is it sees text, it puts it there. Got it :) Seablue 16:39, 13 July 2008 (UTC)


Would you mind adding a line break just before the <span class="plainlinks"></span>? It is cut off at my resolution.User:Matt/sig 17:34, July 13, 2008 (UTC)

Better now? Adam [ talk ] 18:16, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
Yes, much better. I heard that there are some Firefox add-ons that let you change your browser's resolution to just about anything. Perhaps you can use that to check for low-res compatibility in the future? I have yet to try any of them so I don't know what would work best. You could try some. That way, you can get it to look good no matter what resolution it is in.User:Matt/sig 18:24, July 13, 2008 (UTC)


The new Japanese looks really sloppy. I've got a solution. I'll put it in the sandbox.User:Matt/sig 21:51, September 21, 2008 (UTC)

This got lost in the recent changes without anyone noticing so I'm making another edit.User:Matt/sig 19:57, September 23, 2008 (UTC)
I like it. Any objections to this becoming the new format? (It's smaller vertically, which is what I like about it.) User:Ando/sig 23:17, 23 September 2008 (UTC)
Sorry about not noticing before, Matt -- I tend to accidentally skip over edits I don't have to patrol sometimes without even thinking, so I missed yours.
OK, I made the change, and added a nifty new tool that Davogones brought to my attention! Adam [ talk ] 17:50, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

What was the reason for rearranging the kana? They were in (Japanese) alphabetical order. (The proper order is A, E, I, O, U) --Davogones 03:05, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

Actually, I've never seen any material that teaches kana in that order, even in Japan. Far as I've seen, AEIOU is only English vowel order. Japanese vowel order is AIUEO (then KA KI KU KE KO, SA SHI SU SE SO, etc.). I mean, any kana teaching material you find will teach them in this order. I've never seen anything teaching them in English vowel order, so I feel rather justified in this. Considering most people that are using that feature KNOW kana already and likely learned it in the order I've switched it to, it just makes more sense to me not to confuse people. Makes it easier for me, anyway. :/ User:Ando/sig 03:27, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
Sorry if I come off as arrogant or anything here, I don't mean to. Just trying to prove a point. ;)
How very strange... My brain must have munged the order somehow. I stand corrected. --Davogones 05:49, 2 October 2008 (UTC)


Any objections if I remove the symbol between £ and ₨? I can't actually get this to display in any common browser on any machine I've tried, all I see in Firefox is a little unicode placeholder box with 17DB. This makes me pretty sure that it's this character, which (along with most of the stuff in the Symbols section) I can't imagine any possble use for! Adam [ talk ] 09:47, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

That is the Cambodian riel. We don't need it.User:Matt/sig 10:11, December 14, 2008 (UTC)

The solution is to replace it with &#10​; it seems: Extension:CharInsert § Notes --KokoroSenshi (talk | contribs) 11:47, 31 January 2017 (UTC)


This seems to be missing {{HW|DE}}. — ZeroELEC (talk) 04:40, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
