Revision Content

Hello.

Excuse me if I bother you. I have just finished translating and formatting a long article of mine about Understanding CSS z-index. I am aware that my english is far from being perfect, so I think the article needs to be fully reviewed and corrected. Should I post such a request on the mailing-list or should I refer to someone in particular? Thanks in advance. Lombardp 03:15, 25 Jul 2005 (PDT)

Sorry for wiki table on Main page. I was thinking that will be better. Thanks for reverting :). --Sasa Stefanovic 18:09, 2 September 2005 (PDT)
No trouble. Most of our users are just used to html more than wiki markup, so it's just easier in the long-run. Thanks for helping out :) -- dria 18:17, 2 September 2005 (PDT)

Extremely belated pong regarding Talk:Creating XPCOM Components...I've been busy off and on with various things, working through CXC as I have time (which, admittedly, has become less now that I'm back in classes, but it's still not too bad). I'm doing pretty well overall, and I don't really think I need much help with anything. If anyone feels like going back through the images and regenerating them in 32-bit color (with alpha channel where appropriate), however, I'm definitely open to that. The original images were in GIF format, limiting them to 256 colors and binary transparency. The 256-color problem affects screenshots to varying degrees, while the binary transparency problem is really only a problem because the images with transparency are defined such that **all** areas set to white are assumed to be transparent (e.g., a white circle with a black border on a transparent palette would actually be a black circle on a transparent palette, with white assumed to "bleed through" into the center). There are also a good number of figures and diagrams of inheritance and related topics which could stand to be regenerated, as the text in the originals has become rather blurred and unclear. Aside from that, tho, the text conversion's going well, I'm correcting errors as I find them (primarily typos and such but also the published {{mediawiki.external('and less-published')}} errata too, more or less, although I haven't done a final review of what's posted yet), and I think I'll probably have the rest done within the next couple weeks. --Waldo 23:59, 19 September 2005 (PDT)

  • That's great Waldo. I'll see if I can sort out getting the graphics regenerated by someone. Thanks for the update. -- dria 04:27, 20 September 2005 (PDT)

Hi Dria

Looks like the migration of XBL:XBL_1.0_Reference is finished now. Oh, and, do we really need the References section? -- Andreas Wuest 14:27, November 13, 2005 (PST)

That's great Andreas, thanks very much for the help. I'll look at sorting out the categorization and such this week. -- dria 14:38, 13 November 2005 (PST)

Hey Dria, I have seen you in #MediaWiki. I was hoping to chat with you about the licensing for the Devmo skin. I was already able to download it (from CVS), install it, and tweak it. Now I have to figure out what I need to do so everyone is happy :) Is there an original author I should contact? Let me know either in #mediawiki or via email. Thanks in advance, PhilHarnish 00:41, 11 January 2006 (PST)

Callek's Talk Page

Dria, just a poke to Nickolay's comments to me on my Talk page post, if you agree with him feel free to revert that change I made. --Callek 21:03, 22 January 2006 (PST)

Building an Extension Image repost

Hi Dria,

I reposted the images in PNG format and resized them to 75%. I do not know if it was "OK" to just repost it to the main article, was it? Anyway feel free to slap me a bit if it was not.

Take a look here: Building an Extension (Test)

--Cribe 09:53, 8 February 2006 (PST)

Those are much better. Thanks Cribe :)

Time zone signature + Image resize

Hi me again just wondering

Do you know why the wiki code to force the the display size of an image Ex:[[Image:Example.jpg|100px]] does not work on this Wiki? Also the signature time zones do not seem to work I set my correct time zone in my preferences but my signature does not reflect this. Nickolay seems to think it's a config issue ref: [See last comment Nickolay]

Thanks --Chris 06:51, 9 February 2006 (PST)

Candidates For Deletion

Dria, I cannot seem to find your ToDo page at a quick glance, but perhaps going through these would be worthwhile, they likely dont need to be here. (Nickolay may be able to do it as well) --Callek 16:03, 13 March 2006 (PST)

Regarding would it be possible to not "completely" follow through with that idea. As if there are a large number of pages needing to be deleted, (say similar to what we may have when the JS Reference/Guide is re-done) we can simply add the lot of them to that page, rather than needing to edit every page just to add Category:Junk to it... Of course in the JS Ref case, NickolayBot will probably take care of the work. --Callek 21:53, 14 March 2006 (PST)
I hope we won't delete any pages during the JS Reference reorg. I don't think we need mechanisms for someone to suggest to delete a lot of pages from the wiki. Things like this should probably be discussed on the mailing list / irc first.
BTW, it's not 100% what this sentence on deletion requests page is about: "Do not delete other content or categories from the page". Probably the page being junked? --Nickolay 04:01, 15 March 2006 (PST)
Yeah, that's in reference to the page being deleted. I'll try to clarify, thanks. As for the Deletion Requests page, I see no real purpose for it -- as Nickolay says, if there is a large amount of content to be deleted, we should know about it without someone having to flag it either way. -- dria 04:30, 15 March 2006 (PST)
Fair enough. --Callek 21:48, 15 March 2006 (PST)
