Welcome to my talk page.

If you want to leave me a message, use my talk page on Meta

Welcome to!

Dear Tegel, Welcome to!

Yes, Welcome! This site is dedicated to the documentation of the MediaWiki software, the software behind many wikis, including that of Wikipedia and the Wikimedia Foundation projects.
Please, take a look at the following pages. They might prove useful to you as a newcomer here:

If you have any questions, please ask me on my talk page. Once again, welcome, and I hope you quickly feel comfortable here, and find this site a beneficial documentation of the MediaWiki software.

User Talk:RickyB98

Hello Tigel! :) I found my talk page deleted with reason "Test Page". Was I the one who tested it or was it someone else who used my talk page as sandbox? Thanks, RickyB98 (talk) 17:37, 15 September 2013 (UTC).Reply[reply]

Hi. It was an IP-address that wrote some random letters. Typical test edit. -- Tegel (talk) 17:42, 15 September 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Okay, thanks then :) RickyB98 (talk) 10:46, 16 September 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Documentation of radio buttons and tick boxes

How is the documentation of these 'out of scope'?

It says that the scope is the documentation of mediawiki.

If these had been documented in the right place, not hidden in 'tips' it would have saved me several hours work. Surely saving other people several hours work in using mediawiki is within scope.

Fustbariclation (talk) 02:48, 4 August 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi. Yes, the wiki is for documentation of Mediawiki software. A page with just an external link is not enough. For instance tables is documented here: Help:Tables. Other help-pages can be found here: Help:Contents. There you can see how the help pages is done and you can have them as a base when you create new pages. -- Tegel (talk) 09:28, 4 August 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
OK, I understand. I'll put a recommendation to look at the tip in the page itself instead.

User Talk:LY

"Tegel": Why on earth have you deleted the page I just created, for the CEMA apartment in Algiers? It is not "Spam," but in fact an important resource for scholars studying in Algeria. Please restore it, or tell me how I can do so. LY

Even if it's not spam it's off-topic material for this wiki. This wiki is for documentation of the Mediawiki software, and nothing else. You have to get a normal web page instead. Have you asked your Internet Service Provider? -- Tegel (talk) 19:54, 5 August 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Got it, wasn't aware. Thought it was an open-use wiki. Thanks. LY

Creating a new wiki page

Hey Tegel! :) Just want to know, how I am able to create a new wiki page for free (for the upcoming 3ds game fantasy life) ? :)

Yours User Talk:Supporter

You have to find a wiki that allow that type of information. Have you tried Wikipedia? This wiki is for documenting the Mediawiki software and everything else is off-topic. -- Tegel (talk) 19:22, 13 September 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Why did you delete this page? It was on my user namespace... Ready Steady Yeti (talk) 00:19, 9 October 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes, it was in your user name space. But I couldn't see any connection to the Mediawiki software. This is not a free place for hosting your own wiki. For that you have to provide your own location. -- Tegel (talk) 05:47, 9 October 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
My intention is not "to make the wiki on the". I'm trying to help the community realize my goals for my future wiki, which will be at Ready Steady Yeti (talk) 12:23, 9 October 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
OK. I have restored the page. -- Tegel (talk) 07:53, 10 October 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

m:Don't delete redirects

Hi, please don't delete/suppress redirects unless they're doing a specific harm. You can see in the case of User:Omegat Project Proposal for OPW that the user was confused and re-created the page in the wrong place. --Nemo 08:17, 30 October 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi. Normally I don't delete redirects, but when I do I notify the user on the talk page. As I did in this case. If the user doesn't read it's talk page but recreates the page instead there is not much I can do about that.
You should know that different wikis handle things differently and not to refer to other wikis policys, or in this case an essay. Especially an essay that you moved into the main name space. Many other wikis, as Wikipedia in English, Swedish, Italian and German to mention a few, doesn't approve redirects from the main name space to the user name space for a number of reasons. I could refer to these wikis but I don't see how that would benefit the discussion, so I will just refer to item 3 in the section "exceptions" on the page that you linked to. -- Tegel (talk) 17:39, 30 October 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Regarding the photos uploaded

Yes, I myself has taken these photos - Alisha Jain(Talk)

OK. But it's you on the picture, right? So you used a tripod for the camera? -- Tegel (talk) 17:03, 3 December 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Which image? Can you clarify me so that I can see if I could source it.

Ras Benjih (talk) 05:10, 11 August 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi. None of the two images that you uploaded to this wiki has a license, but I'm firstly referring to this image. -- Tegel (talk) 05:18, 11 August 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks for the warning

I want to be grateful for the warning, I want to asks you something: What is the purpose of this wiki?

It is to document the Mediawiki software. The software that is running in the background on all the other wikis. -- Tegel (talk) 14:50, 5 January 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Please give me 5 minutes

I have to do my testing in the template namespace. Please have patience -- I'll delete the template in 5 minutes. Maiden taiwan (talk) 18:03, 13 January 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Please restore my template and the associated /doc subpage. I am tracking a down a bug. Maiden taiwan (talk) 18:06, 13 January 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Do you se why you removed my page Wikpedia ? This also haphens to VisualEditor:Test`s Content`s !

A page about Wikipedia is off-topic for this wiki. -- Tegel (talk) 16:41, 16 August 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

How do I make audio play automatically on wiki pages with Media:Whatever.file?

I think I've seen somebody do this with Media on a Wikia wiki, but I completely forgot the person and how they did it.

Other channels are unavailable for expose of my arguments. What can I do? Yahadzija (talk) 14:14, 4 June 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You can address your arguments on the relevant place. As I mentioned on your talk page this wiki is for the Mediawiki software. If you want to discuss anything else you have to do that elsewhere. -- Tegel (talk) 14:17, 4 June 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

2017 wikitext editor

Hi, Tegel, the 2017 wikitext editor is a great help. I wish to thank the developers team for their initiative. Don't know where to search, but I guess you would be able to trace them. Thank you. :) Lotje (talk) 06:11, 7 November 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi. Thank you for deleting IFrameresizer.min.js. Please consider deleting similar content User:Neron54 from the same user, as well.   — Jeff G. ツ 14:12, 13 March 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Done. -- Tegel (talk) 14:25, 13 March 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Deleted Meza/Using vi

Hi. You deleted Meza/Using vi, saying it was "Out of project scope". Could you resurrect the page and rename it to "minimal vi required to work with Meza"? I need a page that makes it easy for people who are not comfortable with vi, but want to use Meza, to have a bare minimum reference. Thanks! I initially posted on your meta talk page, but have gotten no response and would really like this page restored.

Now you're globally locked, I just have Stryn to pester now. Oh, and by the way, Oshwah is my best friend. And this is for you.

I've finished vandalising.

You can block me now.

why can i not add delete template to spam userpage

the abuse filter blocked me from added {{delete}} to spam userpage, and please can the filter be modified to allow inserting delete template to the spam userpage instead of disallowing the edit please? -- 06:54, 14 October 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Why have you erased my image?

I have uploaded an image: "Esquema_fuente_de_alimentación_y_ondas.png" and you have deleted it. Can you tell me the reason? I'm waiting, thanks. --Clauswifi (talk) 18:05, 8 January 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I couldn't see that the image was relevant for this wiki, so the image was deleted for being off-topic. -- Tegel (talk) 18:07, 8 January 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Please global block me

I did cross wiki vandalism-- 18:55, 7 May 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
