See what's displayed at talk:side wall. The pipe character in the text interferes. You need to use {{!}} or some other workaround. See also Wiktionary:Grease pit#template:rfc-archive.—msh210 20:00, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Hmm, can I ask somebody else to do that? --Jackofclubs 06:30, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
Exactly: it's a pain. What Connel did instead was link to the old version of RDF instead of quoting it. That is, before removing the section, click the "permanent link" link (sidebar) (or, after removing it, go into history and select the old revision), get its URL, and link to that from the talkpage; see, e.g., talk:Spanish double l. Deleted entries get the same treatment, but at MediaWiki:Previously deleted entries instead of the entry's talkpage. That's probably the easiest way, and it works for RFV also. The disadvantage of it is that the old discussion is impossible to find unless you know which entry it was about (in which case you look under the entry's talkpage or Previously deleted entries). That is a disadvantage, but may be outweighed by the ease of archiving.msh210 16:06, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
I do know about this MediaWiki:Previously deleted entries space, but I decided not to manually archive things there, due to the sheer tediousness/unnecessary bureaucracy - my way is quicker manually, this is the only reason I've been archiving like I do (I was getting fed up with the size of the RFD page, and have been wanting to close these ancient - and at times tedious/pointless/pernickety - discussions). How did we archive things before Connel's archivo-bot came along anyhows? --Jackofclubs 08:05, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
I'm too new an admin to recall, personally; someone else will. Your way of archiving to talk is fine imo: if the whole conversation doesn't display due to template considerations, then people will look at the wiki code and figure it out.msh210 16:09, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Category:Latin past participles

Is there a quick fix to empty Category:Latin past participles? Maybe change something at {{past participle of}} --Jackofclubs 15:40, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

No. Latin entries shouldn't use that template. These aren't "form of" entries in LAtin but should have full-fledged entries with inflection tables, because they themselves have forms. --EncycloPetey 15:46, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
Take a look, for example, at the changes that had to be made to cognātus, which isn't actually a participle and was listed as coming from a verb that never existed. --EncycloPetey 16:02, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

Duplicate heading at RFDO

this edit of mine seems to have caused a duplicate heading and related strange results at WT:RFDO near the bottom of the page concerning the "-s" category. I have tried a few things to eliminate the problem. The change can't be "undone". Do you see anything that might have caused the glitch? In this case the consequences aren't too serious, but I'd hate to do it again. DCDuring TALK 14:43, 23 June 2009 (UTC)


Hello, please confirm or deny that you requested on Meta removal of administrator rights. Regards, Leinad 15:10, 23 June 2009 (UTC)


How come he got blocked? I always considered him quite a good editor. Mglovesfun 09:12, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

Okay he admits to using multiple accounts and he messes around quite a lot. For example, he voted against me proposal as an admin on here, but nominated me as an admin on fr.wikt! Still, I don't see many of his edits being reverted or deleted. Mglovesfun (t) 10:51, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

I'm sorry, I've never edited the page Meister. --Top Cat 14 15:05, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
