Summary by Dmehus

 Done per the reasonable request below.

The current links to IRC redirect to IRCCloud, this doesn't seem like the best solution, I think it would be better to link to Libera's webchat instead of IRCCloud. What do you all think? Agent Isai (talk) 21:45, 5 July 2021 (UTC)

Magogre (talkcontribs)

Yeah, I would support this change. To me, Libera's webchat looks simple and easy to use in comparison to IRCCloud. Libera will be better here. ~ Mazzaz (talk) 09:38, 6 July 2021 (UTC)

+Support from here.

Agent Isai, thank you for this request, and to the others that commented. Originally, since most users used IRCCloud, I thought this was the best solution; however, I'm not convinced the IRCCloud links are indeed permanent links. MacFan4000 said he preferred to have IRCCloud, so I kept it as is; however, it seems users are more amenable to switching, so this will be  done. Fortunately, I also just added the libera prefix globally, so I don't even need to update the local interwiki prefix. Additionally, I'll keep the irccloud local prefix as there some historical log actions that refer to that prefix in interwiki wikilinks.

Hello!
Could one admin please replace <center>...</center> with <div style="text-align: center;">...</div>, <br> with <br /> and <big>...</big> with <span style="font-size:larger">...</span> because these tags are obsoletes?

Do you absolutely have to invite everywhere? I understand that you may have a hard time getting users to your wiki, but never use the Main Page talkpage again. This discussion page talks about possible questions from the Main page, and thus there is no forum. Stop, that's already annoying.

Dmehus (talkcontribs)

Iron Sword 23, I do agree with Anton here. While your communication is in good-faith, at some point, it becomes spam (technically, crosswiki spam). If you continue, you may be blocked temporarily from editing on TestWiki (including up to two weeks by any sysop in their discretion).

As I have noticed in the Tags page, there are some tags that are either copies of each other, or some that were just randomly added there. Is there an explanation for that? DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 13:36, 21 May 2021 (UTC)

Dmehus (talkcontribs)

DarkMatterMan4500 Yes, as this is a test wiki, users will create tags when testing that administrator function. I'll take a look and see if cleanup is warranted.
