I don't necessarily speak for the other users, but the slowness of this wiki is severely impacting the "fun" I experience when editing. I highly suggest the root of the problem be found and fixed. —listrophy ( t | c | Logs: bdpr ) 06:39, 22 January 2009 (PST)

I'm not sure what happened, but it seems much (MUCH!) snappier now. Thanks! —listrophy ( t | c | Logs: bdpr ) 08:22, 25 January 2009 (PST)
Thank god, I can finally work faster here. --Taylor Karras (t c s) 17:47, 25 January 2009 (PST)

Protected page warning

I modified MediaWiki:Protectedpagewarning to have a light orange background so that it would be easy to tell that a page is protected. To me, the default warning isn't very noticeable because it's just a bunch of text. What does everyone else think? Remember, only admins will see this warning, and only when editing protected pages (which is why I'm posting it here). Personally, I would like the color to be even a bit lighter, but I didn't feel like spending too much time on it at the time (I used the lightest orange that Inkscape has in it's color list). So, do we want a plain text message, or do we want a little bit of color to make it more noticeable? -- Imperator3733 (talk | contribs | sysop | Logs: bdpr) 22:46, 26 January 2009 (PST)

I think plain text is okay. In most wiki's, the protected page warning is left the way it is because most admins see the bolded text when editing the page, and also only admins can see it so it reduces it's effectiveness because most of us know what we're already doing anyway. In short, I don't think a protected page warning for admins will work well, but a protected page warning for users would work if thought out peoperly. --Taylor Karras (t c s) 23:38, 26 January 2009 (PST)

Maxwell's House 1

Over the past few hours I've noticed Flinc (contribs) add nearly 15,500 bytes to Maxwell's House 1. The page now seems to cover everything that happened, in great detail. While it's good that there are extensive notes, I'm wondering if anyone thinks that there's a bit too much information. -- Imperator3733 (talk | contribs | sysop | Logs: bdpr) 22:46, 26 January 2009 (PST)
