Raspberry Pi

I am gonna switch Tweaker from my Mac to my Raspberry Pi (because that's how you do it)
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 19:25, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

It will run properly on any Linux/Unix (Mac OS is Unix-based) system with PHP with CLI support properly installed. I believe it will also run on Windows with XAMPP or WAMP.

I was just wondering how you archive your own talk page. I don't really want to but, how do you? Sorry, I am a curious person.
-PRO- (talk | contribs) 20:39, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

Just create a page at User talk:USERNAME/Archive X (X being the number you want), and cut-paste all the discussions you wish to archive onto that page. It is also recommended that you add the {{archive header}} template at the top. Then, you can ask an admin to protect it.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 20:41, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
So just a regular page?
-PRO- (talk | contribs) 11:16, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, just create it like a regular page.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 11:19, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
Ok! Where do I create a new page? And, could you look at my Sandbox(Link on my userpage)? It has something you need to look at it. It is a page I suggested on the CP. Thanks!
-PRO- (talk | contribs) 11:43, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
You can create a new page by searching the name of the page you want to create and clicking the link saying "Create the page ___".
jvvg (talk | contribs) 14:45, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
I figured it out. Thanks!

WikiMonitor Problem

When I made Scratch Wiki:Tools WM told me on my talk page that I forgot to categorize it, but WM didn't categorize it either!
JayceeMinecraftlogo.png JayceeMinecraft user | talk | contributions 20:26, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

WM doesn't categorize pages for you. It just notifies you that you forgot. You need to put it on yourself. How would WM know what categories apply to a page? Using keyword matching would be way too problematic.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 00:59, 28 June 2014 (UTC)
Once when I forgot to categorize a page, someone put the category: Article stubs there, and I looked through the history of the page, and It said nothing about someone adding a category.
JayceeMinecraftlogo.png JayceeMinecraft user | talk | contributions 07:59, 28 June 2014 (UTC)
There are a few categories WM does not find acceptable, such as stubs. The reason is that they don't relate to the content of the page.

Big vocabulary

hehe egregious is a big word but it's weird cause it has two definitions: either really bad or (archaic) really good ;)
Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 16:30, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

I think in the context in which I used it, it's pretty clear it means really bad.

Please categorize new pages

Hi there! I noticed when you created the page SomeTestPage, you did not place a category. Pages are categorized to group them with articles of similar content. To categorize an article, place:

At the bottom of the page. "name" represents the actual category's name. A list can be found here. It may also be helpful to read Help:Categories.

This message was sent by an automated bot run by Krett12. You can contact them on their talk page with any concerns.

Why did you delete the template requests page? I liked that page. (Pssst..How do you do a crying face? ). I really would like to know why you deleted it.

But the bot page is? Weird.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 14:16, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
There is more of a specific procedure to requesting bots than requesting templates. There is also less harm to having a bad template than a bad bot. Finally, less discussion usually goes into templates than bots.

For some reason, I can revert multiple edits (not single edits) like an EW, but I am not one. Seriously, I am not an EW. Why can I do this?
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 13:23, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

EWs/admins have a feature to revert all edits by the most recent editor to a page in one click. Regular users have to go through more steps. There isn't even a confirm button for us.

It's going great. I'm still at running camp, and tomorrow I am doing an 8 mile epic mountain run, and my goal is to go so hard I limp for a week week since it's my last really hard run.

I did it, but I'm still able to walk normally, so I don't think I went hard enough. Later, I can send you a Google Earth path of the route if you want to see where I went.

Krett12 (talk | contribs) 14:09, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
Odd. It worked when I tried setting it up on MediaWiki and when scmb1 set it up on the Scratch Wiki. Try using the code used on the Wiki instead. I now remember I had some issues with Github that might have messed up my code, but the code there is the exact same code used here.

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Did it work?
jvvg (talk | contribs) 15:33, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Well, I can see the request page, but after clicking the request button, or going to "confirm accounts" it says that there is a database error.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 15:39, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
Try going into the database and manually deleting the tables "account_requests" and "account_credentials" and then trying again.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 15:55, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
I use cPanel, and it doesn't give you direct access to the database.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 15:56, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
If you're using cPanel, you should have access to phpMyAdmin, which gives you graphical access to it.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 15:57, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
You are the most awesome tech support person out there. I'll try it right now.

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── phpMyAdmin sees no such tables in the first place. Should I create them?
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 16:06, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

No, do not create them. What is the error you are getting?
jvvg (talk | contribs) 16:59, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
Wait, wait, wait, if those tables don't exist and the pages exist, it didn't install properly. Try importing the SQL files at [1].
jvvg (talk | contribs) 17:02, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
I don't see any "error" as such, it's just not in the list. I tried search. BTW, I'll try getting rid of it and making it again.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 20:48, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
Try importing those files into phpMyAdmin (in alpha order). That should create the database structure necessary.

Fat Cow

I checked out the place, here are some dumb quotes,

"Top 10 Reasons our moovelous customers are jumping over the moon for FatCow."

"Udderly Fantastic Web Hosting!"

"Are you a FatCow on a small farm? Mooove your site to the next level!"

"Around the Farm"

And I'll have you know "Bad Cow Pun!" can also be a quote.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 01:54, 22 August 2014 (UTC)


After I tossed all those FatCow quotes at you, I think I'll toss all of our Wikis acronyms at you (let me know if you don't especially find these lists amusing):

"CP" "WM" "jvvg" "fs" "RC" "EW"

Oh, we don't have as many as I thought we did.

Krett12 (talk | contribs) 15:27, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I guess I have. There are a lot of things like that (e.g. the 3D window switcher in Vista and Win7).
jvvg (talk | contribs) 15:28, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
What 3D window switcher? The only machine besides XP that I own is a Mac I keep on 24/7. EDIT: Let's just keep indenting until we can use the huge one.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 15:30, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
It's just a tool that shows your windows in 3D when switching between them.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 15:31, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
So, basically, things to amuse people, and solely just for that, are "useless and fun"?

Wiki Monitor

Earlier I received a report from Wiki Monitor about not signing my post. I had signed my post in the edit pointed towards, but I signed with three tildes, instead of the usual four. Maybe you could update Wiki Monitor to accept these situations as a signed post, or change the message?
ErnieParke (talk | contribs) 22:55, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

-PRO- Logo2.png-PRO- (talk | contribs) 00:19, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, wouldn't that be nice? The reason I can't do that is that everybody is that custom signatures ruin everything. The only thing that's constant between signatures is the timestamp, so WM looks for that. Somebody suggested I make it look for the editing user, but there are plenty of cases where that may be included not as the signature. Also, I really don't appreciate people putting "support" on this I take every suggestion to WikiMonitor seriously. If I am unsure of the popularity, I will ask. However, for bugs and issues, saying you support fixing it doesn't do anything. I will either fix it or explain why it is unfixable. Putting "support" doesn't make it more likely that I will fix it, as the real limiting factor is my time availability.
EDIT: Ironically enough, I signed this with 5 tildes by accident.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 01:29, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
I know you put five. I tried to fix but I got edit conflicted. when you did it
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 01:31, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

What message above?
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 02:53, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
Awww.... I think you're doing great jvvg! Without you, the Scrtch Wiki (and Scratch!) wouldn't be the same. (No, it wasn't harsh.)
As for the bug... I have an idea on how to fix it jvvg. Instead of just looking for the time stamp, look for the time stamp and <scratchsig> If both don't appear, then there's no signature. Would it work?
(Agreed, that sounds very ironic! :) )
ErnieParke (talk | contribs) 02:59, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
The reason the bug exists is because of custom sigs.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 03:04, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Yeah, Krett explained the problem. If a user has a custom sig, then I can't look for <scratchsig>. This is part of the reason I voiced my opposition to them earlier.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 11:25, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

Sorry jvvg. I agree with ErnieParke that the Scratch Wiki would fall aprat because we wouldn't have WikiMonitor and the confirm account. I think you are a very nice human being. Fixed your outdent.

It is extremely difficult. It took me several weeks to get it working. You can't set it up on a standard web host the way you can set up MediaWiki. It requires very specialized software, which you have to host on your own server equipment.

Yes, but there is no download button.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 01:43, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
It's subversion code. You need an svn client. Anyway, seriously, you don't know what you're getting yourself into if you seriously plan on setting this up. It's ridiculously complicated and you have to do everything perfectly (you have to import 20 or so database patches in order while looking at two different date schemes) and then wade your way through the database to change stuff as necessary.
