Some useful templates[edit | edit source]

Spam busting[edit | edit source]

If a new page has been created purely as spam, just add {{delete|spam}} to the top. Type SPAM in the summary below the edit box, and click save. This adds a large notice (so visitors see the warning before they see the spam), and helps bring the page to the attention of Appropedia's admin team, who can delete the page.

Thanks for correcting my typo[edit source]

U:TTPORTING has over 1,500 page views and you were the first to spot my typo. Welcome to Appropedia. I deleted the other pages you marked with {{Delete}}. Let me know if you have any questions about the site, or you can ask on Appropedia:Village pump. --Teratornis 20:18, 25 August 2012 (PDT)

Thanks a lot. I'm still experimenting, but it seems like you have a community with a great deal of potential, some of it already being realized. As a veteran of template porting internally among Wikipedia languages, I found your discussion of the problem scope quite illuminating, and I hope to be able to help a bit once I become more familiar with Appropedia. — 03:28, 26 August 2012 (PDT)
You might like to review the results of User:Chriswaterguy's attempt at an automatic template import; see User talk:Teratornis#Importing templates with dependencies. I am generally not comfortable with automatic methods of template importing, due to the need to customize a large fraction of templates from Wikipedia to make them work here. I'm glad you found something useful in U:TTPORTING - I wouldn't at all consider myself an expert at template porting/transwikiing because I still get frequently stuck somewhere. It would be nice to have a template debugger; templates in MediaWiki can become as complex as computer programs but we don't have the wikipedia:Integrated development environment tools that modern programmers take for granted. --Teratornis 11:41, 26 August 2012 (PDT)

Welcome![edit source]

I see you're a wiki veteran, but I thought I'd give you our standard welcome anyway. Good to have you here.

A graphic designer - very cool. If you're interested in using those skills to help Appropedia, let me know. --Chriswaterguy 18:42, 6 September 2012 (PDT)

Thanks, Professor Grafman. I haven't checked in at this site for a while, but I'm glad I could help a bit.
