I've just updated [[Template:Triggerwarning]] and [[Template:Proposed feature article]] because they specified a background color but not a foreground color. Suffice it to say that my user-specified skin's default light grey is quite hard to read on light backgrounds! --[[User:Codeman38|Codeman38]] 05:52, September 2, 2010 (UTC)

Delete Page

Hey Skud. Quick question. Can we delete the page Roleplaying games? We had a duplicate page called Roleplaying Games (yay case sensitive) and I condensed the first into the second. Koipond 07:17, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

You should redirect instead. --Skud 22:27, September 11, 2009 (UTC)

Female characters

Oh hey! Thanks for the pointer to Strong female characters et al. I thought it really strange that I couldn't find anything in the wiki about how female characters are drawn up in games, SFF, and the like. ^^; RickScott 15:03, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

Well, there's still a lot more to be said on the subject! But that's what we've got so far. --Skud 19:48, 31 August 2009 (UTC)
Nono, the fail is all with me! ^^; Don't know why it didn't occur to me to look through Special:AllPages or use that funny search-box-thingy. RickScott 02:37, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

wildnfree from ubuntu-women

Hi Skud

I added myself to the list of women in Open Source as well.

Best wishes, Helen (wildnfree)

First DIOS

On http://geekfeminism.wikia.com/wiki/Timeline_of_geek_feminism - Can I list the first Diversity in Open Source Workshop being held at Ohio LinuxFest in a couple weeks? http://www.ohiolinux.org/dios.html I don't want to appear to be pimping but it's an outgrowth of the WIOS idea and, I think, new and different to OSS conferences.

Yes, of course! Please go ahead. --Skud 22:25, September 11, 2009 (UTC)

Spelling

Question: Does this wiki use U.S. or U.K. spelling as its standard? I have noticed discrepancies and am unsure how to proceed. Also, are there any major differences between this wiki's accepted format and the general Wikipedia model adapted by Wikia? I ask because Nonsexist language uses the largest variety of header, and my first instinct is to lower them to the second largest as is the general standard across wikis. --Dragonclaws(talk) 02:45, September 15, 2009 (UTC)

There is no standard. Use either as you feel comfortable, but don't change others' gratuitously. --Skud 03:45, September 15, 2009 (UTC)
Okay. Thank you for answering. --Dragonclaws(talk) 03:47, September 15, 2009 (UTC)

My pleasure

Dear Skud, <moved to e-mail - "save page" sounds public>

Blog post idea

Hello, I have been working on a series blog posts about our wikis, and wanted to include Geek Feminism wiki, since it is such a great resource. If you have any facts, stories or links that you want included, let me know! Thanks for all your work here. Cheers, --Sarah (talk 23:41, December 2, 2009 (UTC)

Thanks Sarah. I'll gather suggestions here and then comment on your talk page with what we come up with. One thing probably worth mentioning is that we have an accompanying blog at http://geekfeminism.org/ --Skud 02:07, December 3, 2009 (UTC)
Okay, great, thanks! Best, --Sarah (talk 19:18, December 7, 2009 (UTC)


Delete

I have notified tfmorris at freebase about several discussion page links and pipermail chatter that needs to be deleted from freebase. I take it that you will be taking an interest in this matter since "you can help with anything".CarolFeldman 21:29, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

This is not a Freebase support channel. For support with Freebase, I suggest you use the forums, mailing lists, IRC channel provided. More information is available at http://www.freebase.com/build --Skud 21:38, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

Wikianswers widget

I was just adapting the text for the Wikianswers widget. This has been live on the site for some time but wasn't previously showing many questions as it was set to show questions in wikianswers:category:Geek Feminism Wiki. I've changed that to show questions in wikianswers:category:Feminism and made the text around the widget more relevant. Previously it used the default text from here and here and now it shows this and this. Is that ok? If you don't see the widget, you can choose to view it by going to manage widgets which is under the more menu in the top right corner (of the monaco skin).

some links

Hi,

i'm just an occasional reader of this wiki and a very light gamer, the only communities I know are the one I did choose (totalitarian chief of a 2 years autarcik adult gender balanced guild or with real friends) and I'm not in IT industry or else, so I'm not facing the "geekfeminist" issues more than in other spheres of my life. I follow some times the escapist and find today two articles, of course the most interesting things are in the forum. One of them had a pretty clear testimony about some of the issues a woman might find. I'm not that good at english and won't take part in any discussion I can fairly understand and talk about with a good choice of word so I send you the links (first name on the list of the members).

Thank you for this wiki.

Oh, sorry

Just didn't notice your answer on anonymous msgs.. I am dumb. :(

So, I didn't mean to attack your oppinion, but ask some questions. I thought, it would be more correct if "other" flipside of a problem could be represented here. My point is: Could it be, that women might in future "overpower" men just like men still do today? It is wrong too, I think. In my oppinion, we just have to make a balance. Not "one over another", but "one in harmony with another". What do you think?

Quick comment

Skud,


Like the wiki. You've made it fair and informative. Keep up the good work!


I'll keep fixing as I run across stuff.

Template modifications

I've just updated Template:Triggerwarning and Template:Proposed feature article because they specified a background color but not a foreground color. Suffice it to say that my user-specified skin's default light grey is quite hard to read on light backgrounds! --Codeman38 05:52, September 2, 2010 (UTC)

And I've gotten Template:Disambig and Template:Delete as well. I'd go through the others, except I'm tired and need to go to bed...
