MediaWiki talk:Sidebar


  • While I do not want to lock this page (since there are some gaming systems that might deserve their own link on all pages), please use discretion as to adding new elements. Nicjansma 14:51, 17 September 2006 (CDT)

Recognize changes[edit]

  • I remember wrestling with this a few months ago, but cannot remember what the answer was: how do I 'refresh' the database, in order to recognize the changes I've made to a sidebar? I thought it was Ctrl-F5, but that's not working. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 23:28, 10 February 2007 (CST)
Sel-answered; type
into the browser bar, add on the page to be purged where the pound signs are and have at it. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 23:31, 10 February 2007 (CST)

BTW Space[edit]

'BTW Space' is rather ambiguous to someone who hasn't been here before. However, I don't quite know of a better word. Ideas? Nicjansma 01:50, 9 December 2007 (CST)

That's where I am too. I thought sleeping on it would help. I was wrong.--Revanche (talk|contribs) 08:17, 9 December 2007 (CST)

How about one of these: BTW Namespace, About BTW, Oprah's Bookclub, Village Pump. I like #3 the best, but think the last may be most relevant. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 10:12, 9 December 2007 (CST)
If you call it the third, I'll ban you. "About BTW" was actually the idea that I came up with before I noticed you had produced suggestions. Village Pump is fine for people coming over from WP, but I'm not sure how many of those there are anymore (actually, I am pretty sure it's "none"). About BTW seems to be the most descriptive for n00bs, which is really the group that's important as the rest of us know what's there and what's supposed to be there. --Scaletail 11:41, 9 December 2007 (CST)
'About BTW' sounds best to me. Nicjansma 09:22, 10 December 2007 (CST)
I'm just fine with that and see no reason why anyone would be confused by that. I'll make the change. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 14:21, 10 December 2007 (CST)

Classic BattleTech Wiki[edit]

Anyone mind if I change this title to "BattleTech Wiki" since we now handle MechWarrior: Dark Age as well? --Ebakunin 06:29, 9 July 2009 (UTC)

I'm absolutely fine with the change. It was never intended to be CGL-only wiki.--Revanche (talk|contribs) 16:50, 9 July 2009 (UTC)
