2010


Franken Fran Fandom?[edit]

Wondering if there should be page 'bout Franken Fran. She is currently /tg/'s "the thing that triggers horrible hardons and hueg fandom." Durr, also rule Maggotsen 16:55, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

Why not. Go for it, tiger. Fatum 03:34, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Grrr, but except nothing but porn! Maggotsen 15:12, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Okay. Done. What I lack in writing skill I make up with rule. Maggotsen 16:24, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Featured items[edit]

We should have a page with spotlights like other wikis so you dont have to click random page to find new stuff or go thru the link maze--24.176.167.20 02:08, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

Public Backups[edit]

Can we get a periodic Megaupload download link for a backup of the mysql database for this site? There's a lot of work on here, so it would be good to be able to retrieve it if the host gets hit by a bus. --Destro 14:07, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

I frequently dump the database and keep a copy of it safely on my home machine. In the event of my computer or the datacenter that hosts the linode being hit by a bus, a safe copy would exist. If I get hit by a bus, my wife and friends know enough about it to keep it running or make a database backup available. If it transpires that a lot of people would like available backups, I'll look into making a publicly available backup, although I'd probably only include the article content and not the user tables. --Wikifag 17:50, 18 September 2010 (UTC)
That sounds sensible, thanks for getting back to me. -Destro 21:43, 28 September 2010 (UTC)

Spambots[edit]

I've noticed too many generic, harmless and non-sequitir posts on the Talk:* pages (they love Talk:Journal_of_Kith for some reason), even posting to Talk:* pages for articles that don't exist. I've started adding a captcha of sorts to the Talk:* pages -- if you're a human, add new text above that 'spambots only below this line' header. Robots will ignore anything on the page, and just append text to the bottom after the captcha. It won't stop spambots, but at least makes the spam easier to detect despite using "harmless" text. --NotBrandX 14:13, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

Wikifag could also just edit-protect this page to registered users only. It's not like spambots take the time to register and spam.
