Original reporting[edit]

Hi, thanks for the note. I will have to have a look through the final stories and see what of my reporting is still there, I think most of it was overwritten by more sourced material. ClareWhite 8 July 2005 12:38 (UTC)

User renaming[edit]

Hi. I can't rename your account, because the new username already exists. The new username must not exist on the site, yet, for the rename proces to work. -- IlyaHaykinson 21:00, 9 July 2005 (UTC)



thanks for your ideas. Please do edit m:Development tasks freely. It would also be nice if you could make it to the research meeting today at 16:00 UTC [1] on

Some comments:

Basic scripting in templates (if/else logic is all that is needed)

See MediaZilla:1689 and MediaZilla:364 for some existing code and discussions, as well as m:Extended template syntax. This includes if/else logic. Brion believes that templates should be kept as simple as possible, and has not been very enthusiastic about enhancements. Any new proposal will really have to be newbie-friendly and minimal.

Infobox auto-creator (working on this in PHP so even idiots can quickly create customized infoboxes)

Sounds interesting. See w:Wikipedia:Proposal for Table: namespace and intuitive table editor for some ideas on this.

'Source' button on edit page to insert generic source

Yes, I think having custom extensions to the edit toolbar for purposes like this makes sense. This shouldn't be too hard, someone just needs to come up with a nice button. I've added customizability to the simple tasklist.

Search results need to have a "sort by date" option because date is more relevant in news than MediaWiki's "relevancy" calculations - which are rather irrelevant to our news.

Sorting by last-edited might be possible, but probably tricky (we're using Lucene instead of MediaWiki's internal search engine). Probably best to talk to Brion about it.
