I would like to see a brief policy on how to archive or delete stuff to clean up talk pages that have stale talk on them. Someone with experience please put this on the Talk page help article or a link to it. Thank you :-) ---Rogerhc 23:04, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

Sacar "Main page"[edit]

Tento evitar que na página de início apareza "Main page" para fazer espaço na "Portada". Sabe você como?

  • I'm trying to to hide the "Main page" text to get better use of space in gl:wiki but I still don't know. It's not explained in Help:Page name or Help:Section. Do you know how? --Sobreira 23:14, 28 October 2007 (UTC)
Hola, podrías hacerlo en añadir el código siguiente al gl:MediaWiki:Monobook.js:
 // stop displaying the page title on the mainpage (from w:en:MediaWiki:Monobook.js)<pre>
 var mpTitle = "Portada";
 var isMainPage = (document.title.substr(0, document.title.lastIndexOf(" - ")) == mpTitle);
 var isDiff = (document.location.search && (document.location.search.indexOf("diff=") != -1 || document.location.search.indexOf("oldid=") != -1));
 if (isMainPage && !isDiff) {
  document.write('<style type="text/css">/*<![CDATA[*/ #lastmod, #siteSub, #contentSub, h1.firstHeading { display: none !important; } /*]]>*/</style>');
 }
//</pre>

Рассылка на обучение[edit]

Хотел узнать у вас,прочитал правила и не обнаружил запрета на рассылки по обучению,или все таки это запрещено?

Replied on your talk page -- I'm sorry for warning you, it looked quite a bit like advertising for e-autopay or whatever it is. πr2 (t • c) 14:24, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

photo suddenly gone in my page[edit]

HI, i uploaded some photos yesterday that i can see after done uploading, but why didnt i see all picture there today? is my wrong or about the network with the site? now i cant see any picture in my page..i can click in but it going to the part of upload file..

You didn't upload anything to this site, if you uploaded them anywhere it was to Wikipedia. There are no entries in the upload log there, so although you included links on the article page, you don't appear to have actually uploaded anything QuiteUnusual (talk) 13:49, 27 June 2013 (UTC)

RfC on editing other user's article talk page comments with Flow[edit]

On the English Wikipedia, Wikipedia:Flow is a page discussing Flow, the planned improvement to the way MediaWiki software handles article talk pages. There is an RfC about how to configure Flow regarding editing other people's article talk page comments. Your input would be welcome. The RfC is at Wikipedia talk:Flow#Request for Comment on editing other user's comments with Flow. --Guy Macon (talk) 13:52, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Beginner Problem (?)[edit]

Hello, I have tried to add an photo existing & published in the german wikipedia to http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Windmill#Germany

At the end of that german gallery, the photo does not occur. What would I have to do (and: do I have the rights to do it) to make it appear at that place ? thanks in advance, --Neun-x (talk) 06:41, 10 July 2013 (UTC)

File:South Armagh[edit]

The image FileSouth Armagh.jpg was wrongly deleted. I have reuploaded the file. I am the copyright holder of the image and have the original and negative in my possession as proof. Can steps be taken to prevent this file being listed for deletion in the future? The file has been reuploaded as FileFile:UDR Soldiers in South Armagh.jpg.

British English?[edit]

Why is American English (I'm presuming) labelled as just 'English' whereas British English is labelled as such? It should be the other way around, American English being labelled as such and British English being labelled as simply 'English.' Since Britain (England) is the country of origin, I'm presuming languages such as 'Espanol' uses the variety of Spanish spoken in Spain, rather than Latin American Spanish. Why should English be any different?

Error de fotografia en articulo[edit]
