[edit] Well...

I'd like you to give me advice on my Wikipedia talkpage? (Note-The issue will also influence what I do on this wiki too) --70.181.68.226 05:10, 6 July 2013 (UTC)

Sure. What specifically? (btw, you forgot theadd topic button again.) t numbermaniac c 05:23, 6 July 2013 (UTC)
Just tell me your opinions and/or give me advice. I kinda need it. And my ipad crashed every time I try to do the add topic button, so I don't. --70.181.68.226 05:25, 6 July 2013 (UTC)
Odd, I got an edit conflict for the previous comment. I don't know how your iPad could crash, which model of it do you use?
Youre a nice, very friendly editor. I'm deliberately going to miss the first advice any registered editor would give you, cos I know the result. t numbermaniac c 05:40, 6 July 2013 (UTC)
No, I mean my Internet just closes. Poof! And I have to open the webpage again... But that isn't important. No one is giving advice, and I bet anyone but you will say, "Just get an account already" or something similar. And thanks :). --70.181.68.226 05:43, 6 July 2013 (UTC)
Can you please just give me some advice? I really need it... --70.181.68.226 06:00, 6 July 2013 (UTC)
Why do you need it so desperately? It wouldn't hurt to edit the main space a bit more. t numbermaniac c 06:34, 6 July 2013 (UTC)
No, it isn't that! I don't have a problem with editing mainspace. It's the... account issue... --70.181.68.226 06:39, 6 July 2013 (UTC)

Nothing much to it, when you feel a discussion is old, move it to an archive! Create one at User talk:Sheepuff20/Archive 1 or similar, and copy and paste old discussions! t numbermaniac c 08:02, 6 July 2013 (UTC)

Eating privileges?! It's funny how many people play games during lunch on the library computers even after how many teachers say you can't. t numbermaniac c 05:14, 26 July 2013 (UTC)

But why do you have eating privileges?? t numbermaniac c 05:17, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
If you lose your eating privileges, you don't get to eat breakfast or lunch at school. You have to stand in the front of the cafeteria on the stage. Meeples10 signature.png Talk

Wait, you eat breakfast at school? And do you bring lunch from home or get it there? We bring lunch from home and eat breakfast at home. Although there is a canteen for recess and lunch. t numbermaniac c 23:37, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
I eat breakfast at home, but some people don't, and you are allowed to bring food to school. "Any edible substance, other than provided by instructors, are strictly prohibited from school premises." Meeples10 signature.png Talk

Is the School Board independent or part of the school? Cos if it's part of the school they won't do anything. "We're working on it". Classic. t numbermaniac c 22:14, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

It feels like you never left. How was it? t numbermaniac c 21:46, 31 July 2013 (UTC)
It was great. I went to a beach (in Archive 1, I mentioned where) and found a needlefish. Needlefish are about a foot (customary) long, with teeth about 2 millimeters long, and the only bones in their bodies are their spines and their skulls. The only bad thing that happened was when the fish latched on to my hand with his teeth. Meeples10 signature.png Talk

Question! What does this mean? --Sheepuff20 (T|C) 03:01, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

All of curese's wikis are being moved to the new Gamepedia platform. And the mediawiki version is being upgraded from 1.18.6 to 1.19.7, and hopefully 1.21 soon. Moving it to Gamepedia will allow seamless, smooth upgrading of all of Curse's wikis. t numbermaniac c 04:00, 4 August 2013 (UTC)
Ok... But does that mean I have to get a Curse account in order to stay? And right now, I'm editing from an app on my Nook that (luckily) has a link here but they might not update the app to the new site... And Curse accounts require email, something that just isn't available for me at the moment. --Sheepuff20 (T|C) 04:48, 4 August 2013 (UTC)
The current link will be redirected to the new link, so hopefully no worries about the nook app. I still don't understand what the problem is in getting an email... t numbermaniac c 06:03, 4 August 2013 (UTC)
Bad news for you: Minecraft Wiki talk:Community portal/Migration to Gamepedia#Email requirement t numbermaniac c 08:37, 4 August 2013 (UTC)
I think i rushed my previous comment thanks to lunch. gamepedia.com says they have 249 wikis, and upgrading them all when a new mediawiki comes would be a pain. They have to modify code, test compatibility etc. Gamepedia allows them to do it once and it takes effect on all wikis. t numbermaniac c 21:47, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

William Abbot and Lou Costello. Abbot was born in 1895 and died in 1974, and Costello was born in 1904 and died in 1959. Abbot died of cancer, and Costello died of a heart attack.

[edit] Results

So, I forgot to mention that I was borrowing those two dashes, lol. I've been using my iPad this week for edits at my grandmothers place, in the country. I'm using a Turbo Hub with a crappy connection, and better yet the browser I'm using (Puffin) like to reload the page you're on when it doesn't have a good connection to the network. The last edit I did, took me 30mins :\ -- Bb 20 (Edits) 12:14, 9 August 2013 (UTC)

Borrowed? The browser just refereshes a page while you're editing it? Weird... have you tried Chrome? Works decently, except for the fact that it sometimes reloads pages when you're away from them for too long. 30 mins is far too long :(. t numbermaniac c 23:18, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
Wrong swipe of a finger removed them, somehow. I noticed it afterwards, but it would've taken too long to fix, and it was really late, though I knew you would see it ;) Puffin wants a constant connection to the page you're viewing, and if it doesn't have that it gives an error and reloads the page. Each time I made small edits I would copy the text before it reloaded, paste it back after that happened, keep editing, copy, reload paste... you get the idea, I hope. Dumb, and that's all I could do. I want to get back home to my wired internet! -- Bb 20 (Edits) 23:49, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
I get an email everything time that page is edited lol. Something I do sometimes is use the "Notes" app on my iPad, I've found it to be really nifty. I copy paste it into the notes app, modify it, then copy paste that into the edit box here. Also, your Contribs link can be shortened by combining the span and sup tags :). Just do <sup style="color:blue">(Edits)</sup>. Should do the same thing. t numbermaniac c 00:51, 10 August 2013 (UTC)
Excellent! The simple things I just don't think of haha. Also, good tip for the siggy there, always appreciate that. -- Bb 20(Edits) 01:50, 10 August 2013 (UTC)
Happy to help :) t numbermaniac c 01:59, 10 August 2013 (UTC)

[edit] On horses and gender

Hi. About this edit: [1] You may be right about the style part, but animals could be said to be gendered in that newborns spawn underneath one of their parents, whom we can call the mother. It's explained in the linked bug report. This kind of gender is very transient, however. Nevertheless, I still thought it was worth mentioning. --Jonathan2520 02:58, 17 August 2013 (UTC)

Ah, I see what you mean. However, I'm not so sure how good it is to say "mother", as that could confuse readers. Perhaps it could say "the adult underneath which the foal spawned"? t numbermaniac c 04:48, 17 August 2013 (UTC)

[edit] Curse JS script

That's a userscript. It requires the Scriptish or Greasemonkey extensions. You can't just use it as normal JavaScript (in this instance), as it has to run before the page loads (so it's able to stop other scripts before they run). ultradude25Talk

Yeah, I thought a similar thing and I thought I'd wait to see if anyone else says something. It's just that my Firefox for Android doesn't seem to support either of the two, probably because they're desktop only. -- t numbermaniac c 05:40, 24 August 2013 (UTC)

Do you know if it's possible to make a line (----) colored? I want to make it my userspace color. Meeples10 t ~ c 02:00, 7 September 2013 (UTC)

Maybe, but I'll need time to experiment and get it right.

I was wondering if you could update your Userbox to support just plain usernames? This would make it easier on users. I would do this myself but it's your template and I figured I would run it by you. Here is an example link construction: http://u.mcf.li/Falkirks/profile

There's some problems with that:
  1. The IP changes every day, because at night we turn the modem off and then we turn it on again in the morning.
  2. I basically never have it on, mainly because I have a moderately large amount of homework to complete.
