I think It has only the theme like MediaWiki but the intrinsic nature is a static HTML page. If I create a HTML page, and use CSS to make it's the same as Wikipedia, do you call my page a Wikipedia site? Tandoigai (talk) 07:25, 11 November 2012 (UTC)


Greetings, For one thing, it's not static HTML. It's PHP. If you directly go to donate.wikimedia.org, you would be redirected to https://donate.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:FundraiserLandingPage&country= where "country" is the country code based on your IP, plus other parameters. That URL alone indicates it's MediaWiki. Plus if you look at the source, it loads several MediaWiki modules including the vector skin. In fact, one of the meta reads "<meta name="generator" content="MediaWiki 1.21wmf3" />" which means that that page has been generated by that version of MediaWiki. Please, stop embarrassing yourself. Nobody creates a "bloated" single-page HTML. Fereal (talk) 07:36, 11 November 2012 (UTC)


Hi :)[edit]

I appolagies unreservedly if I have caused any offence, I named the extension out of pure innocence, though it was mentioned after the fact by an editor that I should choose my names more carefully, I can assure you 100% I didn't even know that the other extension existed, I was simple creating an extension using the naming convention I always use which was uppercase per word (you can check my other extensions to see this).

I would have been willing to delete the extension and rename it if you hadn't become abusive, I'm certainly not inconsiderate, maybe a little inexperienced when it comes to Mediawiki, but where is the spirit of helping newcomers.

I meant you are both "inexperienced" and "inconsiderate" in both MediaWiki dev and web dev in general. The fact that you think it's okay to cram over 700kb worth of CSS into a visitor's face just shows your skill level. As for the extension, just rename it to something like "MediaWiki Bootstrap" or "Bootstrap (SwiftSys)" or whatever, just not the exact same name with different capitalization since it's confusing to the users. Also stop vandalizing my beautiful talk page. Go away. Fereal (talk) 16:55, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

Hell will freeze over before I change the extension now. I can't believe you have the ordacity to call me incosiderate and inexpereienced. I think you're suffering from a touch of the green eyed monster, grow up and act like an adult, and while you're at it learn some manners.

I think the popularity of my extensions speaks for itself, as does the amount I earn from web developement. Get a life!

I could also create a program that consumes 500% more memory than it would actually use. I bet normal, average joe users won't be able to notice how unoptimized my program is. Fereal (talk) 03:57, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
PS: Also the fact that you can't even defend the primary complaint just shows how incompetent you are. Also muh talk page vandalization. Fereal (talk) 04:01, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

Starting conversion of LiquidThreads to Flow at mediawiki.org[edit]

Hello. I'm sending this to you, because you've been one of the top 50 users of LQT on mediawiki.org over the last 360 days,[1] and I wanted to make sure that you'd seen the announcement at Starting conversion of LiquidThreads to Flow at mediawiki.org. There are links in the topic-summary at the top, for other discussions (wikitech-l and Project:Current_issues), and a link to the planned process and timeline (scheduled to begin April 6, with smaller conversions at first). Please do test Flow out at Talk:Sandbox if you haven't tried it recently, and give any feedback/suggestions/requests at that main discussion location. Much thanks, Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 00:16, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
