IRC field validation bug

There is some problem in entry I encountered during `paludis` page update --- it requires me that irc field starts with `http://`, which is completely non-sence. KAction (talk) 03:36, 4 April 2013 (EDT)

Bug reports

Heiya Jgay, about a fortnight ago I filed a bug report for MediaWiki which has not been dealt with so far. This leads me to a suggestion. Perhaps you introduce a new user group for some trusted users which is able to edit the main page directly. I am sure a mode may be set up to identify them.

Heiya, I am still curious about what will happen to the bug reports. Cheers --[[kgh]] 16:13, 15 November 2011 (EST)

date of edit query

hey jgay, you should check out the REVISIONTIMESTAMP magic word. it shows the time of the last page edit. i have it set for each entry using template:entry. you can query it with: |?Revisiontimestamp. it could be useful for User:Jgay/stats. -- Sudoman 15:40, 7 September 2012 (EDT)


Hi Joshua, how to proceed for GNU MPC? There is already an entry for mpc (Music Player Command). Genium (talk) 13:50, 18 January 2014 (EST)

IMO, one solution could be to ask the GNU maintainer to rename its package libmpc just to keep things straight.. What do you think? Genium (talk) 14:01, 18 January 2014 (EST)
When there is a naming conflict, GNU packages should take precedent. I have mad ethe appropriate page moves. Please feel free to make additional redirects as you see fit. --Jgay (talk) 12:44, 19 January 2014 (EST)


Dear colleague! You deleted the article FDEReplace without providing a link to a respective paragraph of the speedy deletion rules, even without any mention of the rules. Yes, I understand well that the Free Software Directory is not the Wikipedia and has other rules, but some rules have to be. So, please point me to the rules paragraph the deletion is based on.
