Archiving policy[edit]

You seem to be archiving this talk page based purely on time rather than requiring a certain minimum length before archiving. Could you clarify what exactly your policy is and why? Eighty5cacao 17:50, 16 July 2011 (MST)

I've been doing it based on three months. A lot of archiving bots on Wikipedia likewise appear to archive by time. --Tepples 19:26, 16 July 2011 (MST)
Perhaps I was not clear: Why not use a policy that considers both time and text length? It seemed to me a little counterproductive to archive the lone comment that was here previously without waiting for another, three months old as it may have been. We aren't bots after all...

In other words, I advise against archiving this section until three months have passed and a new section has been started by a legitimate user (as opposed to a spambot). Eighty5cacao 19:13, 8 September 2011 (MST)

To join an existing thread - wrong?[edit]

"To join an existing thread, click the [edit] link at the side" ... but no such links appear for me when I am looking at Talk:Main Page itself, as opposed to its /current subpage. Possibly because I am not an admin on this wiki and the protection status of Talk:Main Page is what the MediaWiki software is taking into account? Presumably any other user could have this problem.

Is this any better? --Tepples 16:25, 4 October 2011 (MST)
Ok, I suppose that works. Eighty5cacao 17:28, 4 October 2011 (MST)

Captcha problem[edit]

I get some sort of PHP error when trying to do anything cute: "Fatal error: Call to undefined method WebRequest::getIP() in .../extensions/ConfirmEdit/Captcha.php on line 202" Might this fix work? --184.19.30.23 09:21, 27 June 2012 (MST)
