Now that you are a sysop, maybe you can see if you can get rid of the underline under links. I think they look bad and most wiki sites do not have them. wikt:User:Gmcfoley
The site looks a lot cleaner without the lines, Also I notice you have a page on Wiktionary, why not apply for admin rights to that also? Gmcfoley 08:51, 14 December 2005 (UTC)
- Hmm, I'll think about it, thanks. Michael 10:51, 14 December 2005 (UTC)
Maybe you should change Recent changes to Newest changes as is done on other simple English Wikis. Gmcfoley 09:02, 14 December 2005 (UTC)
- Changed throughout the wiki. Michael 10:51, 14 December 2005 (UTC)
pages i worked on
The lower case I looks bad, is there a way to get it Uppercase? Gerard Foley 09:06, 14 December 2005 (UTC)
- The default monobook.css has a text-transform: lowercase; entry for the top links. It should be possible to override it in the local copy, but is it wise to deviate from the other Simple wikis? Michael 10:51, 14 December 2005 (UTC)
No, it should be changed on all the Simple Wikis. Gerard Foley 11:42, 14 December 2005 (UTC)
- No, I'm not. Michael 06:23, 7 January 2006 (UTC)
As you can see from the recent edits here, I have made some major changes to MediaWiki settings, including changing the things the others have commented on. I changed "pages i worked on" to "my changes," which is not only simpler English, but also avoids the silly lowercase "i" problem. I've requested that they change it at SEWikipedia, but it hasn't happened yet. I also changed "Newest changes" to "New changes" since they mean about the same thing and "new" (unlike "newest") is on the BE850. I'm working on some of the system messages and other infrastructure (help pages, policy pages, etc.) to try to get this wiki and the other simple English wikis into good shape. Feel free to help with that.
I really like the introduction you placed on the sandbox. Good work.

Request for Admin Status
Thank you for reverting the vandalism to my page a while back. When I added the link to my userpage on the main page, I didn't realize that I was asking for userpage vandalism. I still think it is a good idea to have it there, but thanks for helping me out. I didn't even realize the page had been vandalized (more than once) until I checked the history.
En. Wikibooks Merger
I wanted to draw your attention to this discussion: Wikibooks:Simple_talk#Merge_this_project_with_en.wikibooks.3F. I would really like to get the involvement of as many members here as possible before anybody does anything. I dont want this to be a hostile or forced process, the SE community really has every right to say they don't want to do this and nobody would ever bring the option up again.
I really do believe that there are a lot of benefits to this merger, most of which are enumerated in the discussion. I sincerely believe that everybody would benefit from this, a mixing of the passion for teaching from this project with the staff and infrastructure of the EN project. Please let us know what you think about this. --Whiteknight 02:00, 2 October 2007 (UTC)
Can you contact me off wiki?
I would like to discuss something.

I just ask a steward to help with cleaning out the deletion category. There where things in it older that three months. I hope you don't feel overruled.
See ya, Abigor 14:17, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
