Copying over from the TWiTInfo.org site

If we want to make this the official TWiT Network information hub, is it okay to straight-up copy and paste from the TWiT Info Site? It would make things a lot easier, but I don't want to do it and then be stepping on any toes. --Erier2003 09:12, 11 January 2009 (PST)

  • It's ok with me as long as it's ok with the owner of TWiT Info. Leo 23:04, 14 January 2009 (PST)
    • Note that the TWiT Info owner publishes under the CC-BY-NC-SA which is not compatible with the more liberal CC-BY-SA used here on the wiki. You would need specific permission from the TWiT Info owner to use their material, if you make contact with them and they agree you might ask them to change their license terms to CC-BY-SA to make them automatically wiki compatible. --BenFranske 21:38, 27 January 2009 (PST)

TWiT Army Flickr and TWiT Army Soundoff

Was wondering if anyone had any opinions about whether or not these two items might warrant a front page entry in the community section. I put a section on the twit army flickr in the twit army page, but it has grown pretty large and I think it may be worthy of front pageness. It has nearly 15000 total views and 1000 images all well organized and captioned. As far as the soundoff goes, I think they have been doing a bangup job on the podcast and front page status on the wiki might help them get some better numbers. Thoughts? --The Frogman 08:12, 6 February 2009 (PST)

  • I'm not entirely sure about the flickr group, but I think Sound Off should definitely have a front page entry. If somebody writes the Sound Off page up I'd be happy to add to to the main page. --Steveh 16:55, 6 February 2009 (PST)
  • Since the TWiT Army encompasses many projects perhaps it should have a single entry on the front page, with links to external sites from a main TWiT Army page here on the wiki. Just an idea to keep the community section on the front page a little cleaner.--Thor79 15:04, 7 February 2009 (PST)

Allowing anons to post

I think it's a localsettings.php thing, but allowing anons to post would help wiki improvement, we have a strong and active commuinity - so any vandalism can be easily reverted. Randomtime 14:37, 12 February 2009 (PST)

I'm going to agree. I think that anonymous edits to the wiki could really help increase contributions, especially with the show notes. We also have enough sysops who regularly browse the wiki that any vandalism won't be much of an issue. --Steveh 19:32, 15 February 2009 (PST)
Forgot to mention this, but in case you haven't noticed, Leo opened editing to anons on 17 February. -- Imperator3733 (talk | contribs | sysop | Logs: bdpr) 06:23, 18 February 2009 (PST)

Problem with MBW show notes template (Audible section)

After episode 125 of MBW, we have had a problem with getting the info for the Audible section to format correctly. The info is in the code properly, as you'll see if you edit. Danegolden 17:49, 17 February 2009 (PST)

Fixed - The later episodes had the parameter names capitalized, while the earlier episodes had the parameters lowercase. I fixed the template so that it accepts both. We need to remember to allow for both when creating templates. -- Imperator3733 (talk | contribs | sysop | Logs: bdpr) 19:24, 17 February 2009 (PST)
