Ambox notice.png The comments below are preserved as an archive. Please don't use this page for further discussions. Use the Community portal sections instead.

I'd like to suggest that we start off this page with a link to Special:SpecialPages for those non-wiki users among us - lots of cool things to be done with the software that isn't immediately apparent. Perhaps a link to the wikipedia:Wikipedia:Tutorial as well. --Philosopher Let us reason together. 07:30, 1 August 2012 (EDT)

Heh, done. Feel free to change it if you want.--Philosopher Let us reason together. 08:42, 1 August 2012 (EDT)

[edit] Automatic Import

I'm planning to import all comics automatically. Please have a look at User talk:Jeff#Automatic Import, I need more feedback. --SlashMe (talk) 06:03, 3 August 2012 (EDT)

If we could reserve this page to talking about the Community portal, it'd be awesome.  :) We've got enough discussion pages going at the moment, anyway... --Philosopher Let us reason together. 21:04, 3 August 2012 (EDT)

[edit] « Login error: Incorrect or missing confirmation code. »

Please, how could I possibly do that? I do not see any such code, nor do I see an input box.

I do not actually know « What is the first name of the writer of the webcomic this wiki is about? ». & spellcheck is telling me that « webcomic » is not a conjoined word, which would be silly.

I am here by way of Chris Hayes, msnbc.

Please do assist this ignoramus to register, so that I can write many more ignorant comments.

Thank You,

It has taken a few hours; but, explainxkcd has finally accepted me. I do not yet know « What is the first name of the writer of the webcomic this wiki is about? ».

  • « The art of letter-writing is fast dying out. When a letter cost nine pence, it seemed but fair to try to make it worth nine pence ... Now, however, we think we are too busy for such old-fashioned correspondence. We fire off a multitude of rapid and short notes, instead of sitting down to have a good talk over a real sheet of paper. » 1871.
  • « The age of leisure is dead, and the art of conversation is dying. A craving for literary nips. There never was an age in which so many people were able to write badly. » 1890.
  • « People talk as they ride bicycles–at a rush–without pausing to consider their surroundings the profession of letters is so little understood, tendency among the children of today to rebel against restraint. » 1905.

Thank You,

First: Check your links with the preview button, nearly all are not working (red color does show this).
Second: @IP: Check if JavaScript is enabled at your Browser, don't use a Browser from last century... it's just on your site.
Third: @Hopiakuta: I simply do not understand.--Dgbrt (talk) 18:52, 20 June 2013 (UTC)
Please explain captcha riddles, like: « What is the first name of the writer of the webcomic this wiki is about? ». Why did it block me for a long time with?: « Login error: Incorrect or missing confirmation code. »? Obviously, I am now registered; but, why had I been blocked out for an extended period? Also, hopiakuta is a screenname that I often register; DonFphrnqTaub Persina is my name, my full name, actual name, true name. If I add redirects, it is good or bad or neutral?
Thank You, hopiakuta DonFphrnqTaub Persina hopiakuta (talk) 19:19, 20 June 2013 (UTC)
I did edit your chaos and I'm asking you stop this. All your links are still crap and not working (READ my previous reply)! Do not shout here but ask just a simple question. I will help.--Dgbrt (talk) 20:10, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

If you are not entirely angry, then userpage, please. I can also use a telephone.
