Happy New Year!

See here Here's looking forward to spreading a lot of free culture in the new year. What is your roadmap for 2017? What are you looking forward to here? —Justin (koavf)TCM☯ 09:14, 31 December 2016 (PST)


could somebody "in the know" please post what is happening with the sign-ups problem?

also, what happened with ectiology?

& how does that affect site ownership, administration, etc.?

plus whatever other news there is?  :)

(btw still waiting for a fix on the max upload/pdf problem from 2 yrs ago... )

best, in any case

maybe we should consider importing the "thank an editor for their edit" feature from wikipedia?

i know it's a very small community here; but it wouldn't hurt to have it.

& if we have any plans to grow the community in the future, it'd be very useful in fostering that.

some other midiawiki fixes/updates/features it would be nice to have:
1. bigger max file upload size; at least a little bigger. 2mb isn't enough for .pdf's, & it is pretty small for photos, tiny for any audio or video.
2. wider range of accepted file types. i couldn't even upload a .txt file version of a story; we should be covering all (major) doc/text formats at least.
makes it easier for downloading content to users as well
3. would be nice to get the latest features for "hotcat"; esp. the ones that "guess" the category you are looking for; re: capitalisation & spelling.

OK. To find unswer for yours questions read: Wikilivres:Community_Portal/en/Archive_2015#User:Eclecticology is deceased and see some previous topics on the page. We don't have possibility to change anyfhing here, at this moment because nobody have acces to the server. Electron   14:53, 6 January 2017 (PST)
HotCat Yes, unfortunately, we have lost the person who was heading up the site--User:Yann was evidently in contact with this family but of course, that is a sensitive matter and it may take awhile before anyone is back in charge of the background technical issues. (For instance, the site has stopped sending me emails when something on my watchlist has changed. Have other users experienced this?) The good news is that if you want HotCat, you can easily import it. You can copy User:Koavf/monobook.js to User:Lx 121/monobook.js if you'd like. If other users want HotCat added to the site, I think that I can edit the common.js file to add it. Not sure about thanking though--that will probably require a newer version of MediaWiki. —Justin (koavf)TCM☯ 11:44, 7 January 2017 (PST)

Page for technical issues

Name? I am thinking about making a page for technical issues/bug/wishlist for features. Do you have suggestions for the name? For now, I will just make Wikilivres:Technical requests. —Justin (koavf)TCM☯ 11:45, 7 January 2017 (PST)
