It looks as though your message MediaWiki:Loginprompt could do with review for the new https circumstances. You must have cookies enabled to log in to Wikinews. Thanks. — billinghurst sDrewth 14:01, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

I've almost never seen that prompt, as I usually log in through other projects (as a way to be sure I look at them, since I expect to spend most of my time here).
The conditional check for whether one is using the secure server hasn't worked since the devs' tampering broke it an age ago. --Pi zero (talk) 14:13, 3 July 2015 (UTC)


I'm not a Wikinews regular so please forgive me if this has already been discussed in the past. We have Category:North-West Frontier Province which was the name of a province of Pakistan. However, the name was changed to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in 2010. I think it is better to use the new name but it's been suggested to me at Talk:NWFP that there is a wider problem. If it is a case of the sheer number of articles, then I'd recommend Cat-a-lot, a script from Commons which can be easily run here and makes category changing far easier. I would be happy to help carry out any large scale category changes using Cat-a-lot (if that is something that needs doing). Any thoughts? Cheers. Green Giant (talk) 16:55, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
