I am going to launch a redesign of the front page (found at Redesign:Main Page) for tomorrow, when I will be sending out an all-campus e-mail about the site. I am writing on all the editors' talk pages so I can get their thoughts and changes. Check it out and make changes as you see fit. Let me know if it is good or bad.Tfooq 19:10, 13 May 2007 (CDT)
Where did you get the John Wagner photo from? Just want to make sure it's not copyrighted or anything. We can't use stuff from the Knox Web site. Well, I don't know that we CAN'T, so we're playing it safe.Tfooq 00:56, 18 May 2007 (CDT)
I got it from the moodle site for the class of his I'm taking. Is that bad?
Hmm ... Well, I would say to take it off to be safe. For now, anyway. I still have to have a discussion about this site with the admins, and I want things as legit as possible for that. Maybe we can set up a shared information agreement of some kind so that this will be okay. But for now, check out flickr or something. Maybe there is a creative commons shot floating out there. Also, if you want to reply, write on my user talk page. That way it will tell me i have a message. And you can make the wiki sign comments for you by typing ~~~~ it's pretty cool.Tfooq 01:32, 18 May 2007 (CDT)
Our First Vandal
To: all sysops. - The Wiki Fire has had a coming of age today. It had it's first big vandal. An anonymous user started deleting content and drawing penises on pages and things like that. Brian Camozzi caught it and alerted me. He and Andy Fitz worked to fix the problems and all changes have been rolled back. As sysops, you all have the privilege to ban users and IPs. The problem is that Knox only has a handful of IPs, so we cannot really ban IPs like other wikis can. However, if vandalism is in progress, you can ban that IP to see if the user gets bored and goes away. Just remember to unblock it after a half hour or something. Anyway, the site is entering puberty, so be on the look out for irrational emotional outbursts.Tfooq 22:50, 18 May 2007 (CDT)
Yes, the former AD's full name is Harlan, but he goes by Harley. I've never heard anyone call him Harlan. --FlyingBridge 22:47, 20 May 2007 (CDT)
