What are the requierments to be a developer?--Arecus fan 23:58, 24 September 2007 (UTC)
- "Our current policy for handing out subversion access is very liberal. If you have made meaningful contributions (by submitting patches, preferably as attachments to bugs in our Bugzilla tracker), you can apply for subversion access, and it will be granted in most cases."

A new idea for the wiki (English wikipedia) 
Why can people not edit their own edit summaries after their edits; this would help people if they accidentally forgot to write one or if they repented for bad actions etc. If this is not the right place to post this please tell me where is appropriate. Casmith 789 15:57, 27 September 2007 (UTC)
- Edit summaries are part of the page history, so I personally don't think you should be able to alter them. However, the right place to discuss such things is the MediaWiki Bugzilla (i.e. Bug tracker). Just open a feature request there, but make sure that there is not already a bug requesting this feature. -- Tbleher 07:55, 22 January 2008 (UTC)
- I am unsure whether there is anything on MediaWiki that facilitates such learning, if thats waht you are asking. I doubt it though... --AnonDiss 09:53, 9 October 2007 (UTC)
Figuring out where the LAUSD comments come from 
Dear WhisperToMe (talk): I consider my being on Wikipedia a privilege for which I'm honored. That being said, if I have something to say on any subject, I say so in an article somewhere and I sign my name to it. Whatever small edits I have done here and there, I also sign my name. I was, thus, wondering if within your high-tech level of WP knowledge, you may be able to tell which computer the LAUSD comments came from? I have never discussed my password with anyone at all, in fact, I have since the incident changed my password. I am, however, concerned that someone with a high level of computer sophistication may be watching me closely and hacking my password at whim. And that this spammer, in question, may use me as a tool to further his/her cause, whatever that may be. Please, let me know. In the meantime have a very Happy New First Day of 2008.Mig 21:21, 1 January 2008 (UTC)
 Figuring out where the LAUSD comments came from Mrs. C, you will have to ask a Wikipedia:Developer that question - Regular users and sysops alone cannot determine the IP address of a registered user (including yourself and the person who pretended to be you).
Anyhow, I would suggest avoiding using your account while on public computers and checking your own computer for keyloggers. Wikipedia has a technique to disable "brute force" password crackers (The "repeat the words in this image" trick), so if someone repeatedly finds your passwords, it could be due to a keylogger. WhisperToMe (talk) 00:08, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
Thanx, WhisperToMe for your response and I will take appropriate measures to see if I learn more about what happened and how to identify the hacker. I used my account here while I was working at LAUSD, but have never used a "public" computer. I wonder if the problem comes from LAUSD, given the rage I've seen and the subject matter. Oh, BTW, I'm "Ms." because C is my dad's family name. Thanx for addressing me so respectfully, however. Mig 01:48, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

- You should generally start by submitting patches on Bugzilla, or writing extensions, or something like that. Keep at it for a while, demonstrate that you know what you're doing, and then ask for commit access.
Article creation wizard in Portuguese Wikipedia 
Hi, The portuguese Wikipedia comunity has decided recently to implement a guide similar to the English Wikipedia Articles for Creation wizard. The main difference is that Ip users would be ultimately able to create their own articles after following the wizard correctly. We have written the guide already and it is ready for implementation. However, I haven't figured out how to do it and haven't found anyone who knows. I was finally directed here. Can you guys help? GoEThe 18:41, 22 July 2008 (UTC)
- This is not the right place to ask. Most developers don't read anything here. You should ask on Wikitech-l, or at irc://irc.freenode.org/mediawiki. The answer to your question, however, is that I don't know of any way to do this in the software at present. Someone needs to write code that would allow your proposal to work, and nobody has. —Simetrical (talk • contribs) 19:12, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
- Hi, actually the guide is ready and it only lasts to redirect the people that wants to create an article to the guide, can you help? --Jack Bauer00 01:47, 25 July 2008 (UTC)
- I will help the community. Regards Sir Lestaty de Lioncourt 02:37, 25 July 2008 (UTC)
I have no idea what exactly you want me, or other developers, or sysadmins, or anyone else to do. Please explain clearly if you want help of some kind. —Simetrical (talk • contribs) 13:41, 25 July 2008 (UTC)
- Simetrical, he request only edit on mediawiki messages. The problem has resolved Sir Lestaty de Lioncourt 19:15, 25 July 2008 (UTC)
