I was wondering, how would you like to be a mod? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:Greg Bishansky (talk).

That would be very cool, thank you. What would I have to do? -- Supermorff 07:10, 21 March 2007 (CDT)

It's already done.

Vandalism

Any details on this vandalism? Because a few months back, someone created a username to frame me and vandalised the other wiki. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:Greg Bishansky (talk).

The cited incidents can be found here, here, here and here. -- Supermorff 08:44, 13 April 2007 (CDT)
I've also discovered this one. -- Supermorff 09:00, 13 April 2007 (CDT)
Thanks for arguing our case at Wikimedia. Jeb 19:26, 13 April 2007 (CDT)

Are we still blacklisted? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:Greg Bishansky (talk).

Yes. A new Wikipedia user has taken the opportunity to use Ask Greg as a conduit in an attempt to circumvent the blacklisting. It is making the removal process complicated. -- Supermorff 03:32, 21 April 2007 (CDT)
The new incident can be found here, and the ongoing discussion is here. Not much to do at this point except keep your fingers crossed. -- Supermorff 13:18, 21 April 2007 (CDT)

Lex pic

Nice work on the Lexington pic. I really like the transparency. You mind if I edit out Coldstone's hand? It's driving me nuts.  :P D Taina 14:01, 25 May 2008 (CDT)

Belushi

Just to be clear, I didn't think you were implying that Belushi the celebrity hockey player was named after Belushi the comedy development gargoyle. I just thought that since there's no context in the article itself, it would be helpful to mention which of the two the hockey player is named for. -- Demonskrye 10:59, 31 May 2008 (CDT)

Oh, okay. Sorry. -- Supermorff 11:02, 31 May 2008 (CDT)

Dracula

Dracula has a bit of a cameo in "Eye of the Beholder." You guys want a screenshot of him? DTaina 17:38, 10 December 2008 (CST)

Exo-Frame

Thank you, Supermorff, for fixing the page! I was starting to get worried there! You may need to come back and fix the rest of the pictures, though. I still have to put up the screenshots for Dingo and the Hunters! DTaina 15:05, 31 December 2008 (CST)

Heh! I'd be happy to come back! It should be easy now that I've finally figured out how to put them in tables. (I suppose I'd better check whether you've added them already...) -- Supermorff 18:30, 31 December 2008 (CST)

HELP!

Hey, formatting on this entry sucks: Demona's Perpetual and Astoundingly Impressive Supply of Heavy Artillery. What we really want is each image lined up with its proper episode, but I have no idea how to do that. --GregX 20:32, 20 April 2010 (CDT)

Never mind. DTaina tackled it. --GregX 20:41, 20 April 2010 (CDT)
DTaina to the rescue!  ;) DTaina 20:43, 20 April 2010 (CDT)

Mediawiki

What's the version of Mediawiki software used here? It doesn't seem to have lots of functions we're used to... Thogial 12:00, 10 May 2011 (PDT)

Is there a possibility for an upgrade? Thogial 04:29, 11 May 2011 (PDT)

Rotating Featured Article

JEB sent me this is an e-mail:


It doesn't appear that Wikipedia does it automatically - in fact, it seems they do it more or less the same way it's done on the Gargwiki (transclude the text of a special featured article page onto the main page). The only difference is that featured articles are chosen by user consensus, and there's an editor whose sole job is updating the featured article page. (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Featured_articles for more details.)

They DO have some sort of automated tool for choosing a random featured article linked on that URL above, but it's some private software hosted on a remote site and not part of Mediawiki itself. So, in short, upgrading the wiki wouldn't give you that feature.

However, I think have a solution... I found a forum thread (http://www.mwusers.com/forums/showthread.php?6181-Featured-Article) that discusses this very issue... and they note that Wikipedia's method has the featured article pages set up ahead of time with a month, date, and year in the page name (i.e. "Feature/December 1, 2010"), while the main page is set up to automatically display the featured article with the current date (instead of a single "Feature" page). And I remember that I used something similar for my "Today in Multiversal History" bit on the Multiversal Omnipedia main page (feel free to check that out to see how I did it). So you could give that a shot. (Yes, you'd still have to edit the featured pages manually, but you could do a bunch at once, then sit back and let the software do the rest of the heavy lifting.)

This doable? -- GregX 00:15, 13 May 2011 (PDT)

Creating your own independent wiki

First of all, thanks for giving me access here. Secondly, how do I create my own independent wiki like this? -- PossiblefromScoobypedia 18:39, 14 May 2014 (PDT)

Family tree

Hi, Supermorff. There's something breaking the CIT family tree. Can you check it out? -- Thogial (talk) 08:27, 6 September 2015 (PDT)
