Projects

Joe, I think there should be a link to the projects category (located at Category:Project_Page) in the sidebar under projects. If possible, you could even make the projects heading itself a link. The projects are an important part of the wiki, and it should be easier to see all of them at once. Also, I recall there being a specific "dont bite the newbies page" or something similar, but I cannot find it. Am I imaging things? If there isn't, there should be. I'd be happy to write it and stick it under projects. --Kraetos 00:06, 8 February 2006 (EST)

It's a Wikipedia policy. See Wikipedia:Please do not bite the newcomers. We often defer to Wikipedia policies unless we have a well-articulated reason to disagree with them. --Peter Farago 00:26, 8 February 2006 (EST)
Thanks Peter. I was lookin for that. --Kraetos 13:30, 8 February 2006 (EST)
I don't see the purpose in bringin the article over in this Wiki... However, a link to it on an apporpriate page somewhere wouldn't harm anyone. :-) -- Joe Beaudoin 11:00, 8 February 2006 (EST)
Did you intend for the pages tagged with the Translation template to be included on the projects list? --Steelviper 11:09, 8 February 2006 (EST)
I think you are referring to {{translation}}... In that case, this was unintentional and I have rectified it. -- Joe Beaudoin 15:09, 8 February 2006 (EST)
Yep. That was it. I was going to throw in some fancy noinclude tags but you've already resolved it. --Steelviper 08:56, 9 February 2006 (EST)

Hey, Joe. Hey, Joe! Joe! JOE! Joejoejoejoejoejoejoejoe...

Ahem. Sorry 'bout that. I'd like to draw your eye to an issue you should probably weigh in on. It's not that kind of issue, so don't get out the User Appriciation Bat just yet. Anyway, when you have a moment... --Day 01:14, 8 February 2006 (EST)

Hooray for Joe!

It's back! Maybe now is a good time to start fleshing out this page a little bit more. I know some talk of t-shirts were mentioned at the frappr site. --Steelviper 11:30, 2 March 2006 (CST)

Well, it's MOSTLY BACK. I'm getting an error when I view the Recent Changes list. (I do have my recent changes set to group changes by article). Here is the error page that appears when I attempt to open Recent Changes--
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 235806 bytes) in home/admin/domains/battlestarwiki.org/public_html/en/includes/ChangesList.php on line 250
Haven't checked in other locations or saw other errors. I reset my Recent Changes preferences. Looks like the "Enhanced Recent Changes" feature is bugged. Turned it off; all was well. Back on, and page fall down and go boom. I'll keep it off for now. Using Firefox 1.5.1 on Mac OS X; no problems since before site downtime. --Spencerian 21:53, 2 March 2006 (CST)

Hey Joe, any idea why the thumbnails on new pics aren't working? --Talos 22:05, 2 March 2006 (CST)

That should be fixed now. Try it out. -- Joe Beaudoin 22:08, 2 March 2006 (CST)
Cool, thanks. The day the Wiki went down was the day I took about a dozen screen shots identifying several new Vipers, some mistakes, the Cylon Virus breaching Gaeta's firewalls, and a really good close-up of the Lt. Insignia with the flush chevron edges that definately proves it's existence. --Talos
The pics for Vipers 2220, 4267, and 7961 aren't working still. Also, the last two pages aren't listed correctly, they're under the "2" heading instead of the proper 4 and 7. --Talos 22:36, 2 March 2006 (CST)
Those three pages load fine on my end. If you visited those articles prior to my fix, which happened an hour or so ago, then you may need to do a hard refresh of the page. Also, listing the Vipers under the proper numbers should be as easy as correcting the sort key in the [[Category: Vipers]] syntax. -- Joe Beaudoin 22:46, 2 March 2006 (CST)

Main Page/Spoilers is down

It says: The database did not find the text of a page that it should have found, named "Main Page/Spoilers". Dan Korn 01:35, 3 March 2006 (CST)

It's up. You may have to do a hard refresh of the page though, just in case your browser cached it incorrectly. -- Joe Beaudoin 07:33, 3 March 2006 (CST)

Good host

I saw about your hosting problems... 1&1 is a good host, I've been using them for a while. Their monthly transfer rates start at 250GB per month for 3 dollars. (although that plan is lacking in a few good features... ) Anyhow, I'm not meaning to spam or anything... I just really like my server. --Aggie

Originally we had 1&1 -- however, as they limited the size of their MySQL databases to 100 MB, we were forced to move. -- Joe Beaudoin 13:04, 5 March 2006 (CST)
