Please let me know if my mass-hiding is causing a problem

There are only nine threads to hide though?

@Jdforrester (WMF) There were about 20 testing threads (things like "FooBar" and "Testing"), but I hid them.

You do not have permission to edit this page, for the following reason:


...


i ''know'' the reason is that i'm not signed in (need an account to do that), but not everyone who visits will realize that, and the Edit page doesn't ''say'' that's the reason, or any reason at all, despite saying it says what the reason is. Just FYI.

Today is Thanksgiving day in the United States.

AJ1m3,zsd. (talkcontribs)

--~~~~ does not work on flowboards.

AJ1m3,zsd. (talkcontribs)

So you cannot sign your signature. The only way to do it would be copy and paste, which is too complex.

AJ1m3,zsd. (talkcontribs)

@Arlo Barnes: Would you like to chat in this topic room?

Arlo Barnes (talkcontribs)

Sure! If ~~~~ doesn't work, perhaps ~~~~~ does? ...no.

AJ1m3,zsd. (talkcontribs)

~~~~~ doesn't work either.

AJ1m3,zsd. (talkcontribs)

This is a flow-board, not a regular wikitext format. Some of the things that don't work include the signature, and most notably, the redirect function does not work. A soft redirect must be used instead.

AJ1m3,zsd. (talkcontribs)

That's why some things don't work as expected :)

Arlo Barnes (talkcontribs)

It makes sense that text for discussion might be desired to be more limited than for articles, transcriptions, etc.

AJ1m3,zsd. (talkcontribs)

Yes, but the good thing is that I think changes go live. This namespace was previously installed on English Wikipedia, but uninstalled after being rejected by the community.

AJ1m3,zsd. (talkcontribs)

It's been five hours from now. There are 29 days left until Christmas, and 34 days left in the year.

Test edit

Chungmotniemtin (talkcontribs)

hello?

AJ1m3,zsd. (talkcontribs)

Hey there! Would you like to chat with me?

Chungmotniemtin (talkcontribs)

yeah, maybe when i'm free. I'm working in Vietnam and work in UTC+7 timezone.

AJ1m3,zsd. (talkcontribs)

Xin chào rất vui được gặp bạn! I would love to chat with you.

Chungmotniemtin (talkcontribs)

yup

AJ1m3,zsd. (talkcontribs)

How are you right now?

AJ1m3,zsd. (talkcontribs)
Chungmotniemtin (talkcontribs)

BrUh, still fine

AJ1m3,zsd. (talkcontribs)

Test edit:

{{Topic:Vyi20hmbufec83dt))

AJ1m3,zsd. (talkcontribs)

Discussions cannot be embedded yet.

Chungmotniemtin (talkcontribs)

BrUh does this board flow?

AJ1m3,zsd. (talkcontribs)

What do you mean?

Chungmotniemtin (talkcontribs)

I said: Does this board flow? A lot of new comments and it isn't flow

AJ1m3,zsd. (talkcontribs)

I don't know. I do know that transcluding this page (as in {{Topic:Vyi20hmbufec83dt}}) will not work yet. Redirects are also impossible.

Is this page a sandbox?

Summary by AnonymousStackOverflow

I edited the description and am hiding test edits.

AnonymousStackOverflow (talkcontribs)

The description seems to imply that this isn't, but it has been used as one.

MdsShakil (talkcontribs)

Obviously main page is not a sandbox

MdsShakil (talkcontribs)

No

AnonymousStackOverflow (talkcontribs)

I think the description should be more clear about that then, because this talk page has a large number of test edits.

Can somebody please update the MediaWiki logo at the bottom?

Quiddity (talkcontribs)

Done. :)

Summary by Felipe da Fonseca

Solved

Felipe da Fonseca (talkcontribs)

How can I generate tests for Wikimuseum? There are someone interested in helping me with this?

Artix Kreiger (talkcontribs)

Hey, this is a test wiki, mainly for scripts and stuff. You might get a good answer over at the teahouse.

Felipe da Fonseca (talkcontribs)

Thanks

CES1596tmp (talkcontribs)

Hi,

I appreciate it if you could remove User:CES1596/common.js. It imports wrong setting of User:CES1596/space removal(.js), which replaces '/' with '' and makes page editing impossible. Thank you in advance.

Cascade protect this page

Cascadeprotected.

Awesome Aasim (talkcontribs)

Please cascade protect this page, there is IP template vandalism.

Quiddity (talkcontribs)

Done. Seems sensible. Other admins are free to revert.

Summary by Quiddity (WMF)

Use the target wiki for article drafts.

MASTERMATES (talkcontribs)

Can I create draft articles here?

Quiddity (WMF) (talkcontribs)

No, it's not recommended. You should create draft articles at the wiki you intend them to stay at, in order to keep the history intact. At Eswiki, there seem to be instructions at w:es:Wikipedia:Zona de pruebas.
