All the spots I can reasonably do are already taken but I'll help out whenever I see some undone deletions.

Re: Deletions? by ChaoSeraChaoSera, 19 Nov 2018 16:16

I can understand fieldstones response here, but it is an uncharitable perception of that post. It can be read either way. Do we have any further proof that Kaktus made that comment with dismissive intent?

Anyhow, even if Kaktus wanted to be passive aggressive, that post isn’t against the rules. (It isn’t against the rules to say that someone’s work is, in their opinion,not of high quality.) But fieldstone also apologized, so I don’t see the issue here. Mistakes are fine, so long as they’re owned up to and don’t become a pattern. In this case, fieldstone owned up to it and as far as I know this is the first time fieldstone has done something out of line. It’s good that Kaktus brought this up in case it does become a pattern, but right now I’m not quite concerned this is anything more than a misunderstanding already resolved.

Signed up for a few spots!

Poking this again, with the link:

Currently there's only four people who've put their name forward for a time.

Other staff who have done some recent deletions (per the records thread) are TaffetaTaffeta, A Random DayA Random Day, DecibellesDecibelles, ProcyonLotorProcyonLotor, ChaoSeraChaoSera, and Tuomey TombstoneTuomey Tombstone.

Could we get people to sign up for at least one time? I will happily switch my choices to primary evenings for weekdays if necessary.

Declined scp_LSscp_LS for name.

Eh. Maybe?

As it stands, I don't think there really is enough in kaktus's post to reach that conclusion. And staff posting there was certainly jumping the gun.

But that is, just, like, my opinion, man.

I dunno. I see Kaktus' response to magnus as saying "Don't worry, you wouldn't have been considered anyways."

Permaban for bad trolling.

TrueAndFalse by BounclBouncl, 18 Nov 2018 21:38

I thought so, but the discussion here wasn't making this clear.

Living the dream, or dreaming the life?

Voting (if I even can!) in accordance with the above post for a six-month ban, if only to resolve the issue and stop leaving ALR in disciplinary purgatory.

This proposal is not proposing that the component be placed onto any articles. It is not the new default rating module - it is completely opt-in, authors will have the option to place it on their articles themselves. It is opt-in, not opt-out. This proposal is simply to have the code for the components moved onto the main wiki such that they're easier to use for those who already want to use them.

From the OP.

Re: Proposal: Info Panes by BounclBouncl, 18 Nov 2018 17:35

Questions, because this isn't clear:

  1. Is this a proposal to make it mandatory to add info panes to all rating modules, or is this a proposal to make info panes an officially endorsed alternative to rating modules?

Living the dream, or dreaming the life?

It's been brought to attention in SSSC that this was never wholly resolved. I am going to posit that this will be a 6 month ban based on the consensus here- those who are in favor of a yearlong as open to 6 months. Those who are in favor of a ban at all are in favor of a ban more than 1 month in size. A year has been voted against.

Therefore I'm going to state the decision as, in total, 6 months. This is an up from 1 month due to severity of the incident (for the site takes misuse of fundamental site infrastructure as highly serious), and less than 1 year due to the offense not being an indication of non-salvageability.

If there requires an override, please vote against me here.

Living the dream, or dreaming the life?

I'd be in favor of this being an option, as long as people don't go around trying to tell those who don't use it to use it. Like, if someone wants to put a trigger warning at the beginning of their article or tale, I'd be rather upset if people were to disparage them for not using the i format instead.

Yeh, I'd say ask them to change.

Re: Username Log by TheDuckmanTheDuckman, 18 Nov 2018 15:41

So someone with a 10+ year old wikidot account recently broke a 9ish year hiatus. Their username is OverseerOverseer.

Do we want to let them keep it, or ask them to change it per current naming rules?

Re: Username Log by ZynZyn, 18 Nov 2018 06:51

So uh, not to open a can of worms but there is one other thing we need to decide on. It seems that the obvious way to use these modules is to link stuff from authors pages, as in the example demo. Are we going to allow people to link patreons or other donation links from their author pages in these? Given the existing policy decisions on the subject this module would be a bit of a grey area. (Personally I'd be fine with that, especially since none of the horror predictions about donation links came true)

For what its worth, this problem is similar to how site navigation currently works on mobile with regard to how you access the sidebar. There's a button you press to make the side-bar pop out, and this version of the page gets stored in your browser history, so if you hit back, then it just brings you to the same version of the page, but without the side bar sticking out.

This is also similar to how the back bar works with respect to how the table of contents module works. If you click one of the links on the table of contents, and then go back, you're just brought back to the top of the article, because that's stored in the history.

While I don't have much opinion on the loading times myself, I just wanted to point out that we currently use other features on the site that change the behavior of the back button in a way similar enough to how this would change that behavior, which makes it less of a problem in my eyes.

Sounds good to me. If you're not concerned about the load times then neither am I.
