Problems of LanguageBox on zh-tw Mainpage

RHZhao may start to work on zh-tw pages before long, but now I find on Main Page/zh-tw all the language links are to Main Page/zh-tw/xx instead of Main Page/xx, which makes them all invalid. I don't know what caused this problem. Could you fix this? ——Cesrate (talk) 22:36, 8 June 2013 (CDT)

A thanks for the info! Until now zh-tw wasn't a supported language by {{lang}} and {{if lang}} and those links needed to know, that the suffix is a language code (if not it thinks it is a English page and adds the other language codes). It is now fixed! — xZise [talk] 05:21, 9 June 2013 (CDT)
Oh, thanks very much. ——Cesrate (talk) 06:58, 9 June 2013 (CDT)

Username change

Can I request a wiki name change? I would like it shortened to inigma Thanks! Inigmatus (talk) 18:16, 12 June 2013 (CDT)

I guess you need to ask User talk:N3X15 for this favour as the needed extension aren't installed and I'm not able to install those. But I'm not sure how useful this is you should consider if “inigma” is really necessary. — xZise [talk] 18:34, 12 June 2013 (CDT)


Thanks for deleting my error of a page. I thought the KSPX addon parts were real parts, so thanks man!\ --Kerbinorbit (talk) 14:22, 13 June 2013 (CDT)

Interwiki link "bug"

That one seems somewhat buggy... For example if you take a look at Kerbal Space Program Wiki:Guidelines#Linking_to_forum.2Fblog nothing appears after the "generates" of the bug: line. Instead a link with "exotic" characters (Win XP can't display them) is added to the sidebar under "In other languages". This does not happen with the other interwiki prefixes. You have added them, so could you please try to fix that? --dgelessus (talk · logs) 18:05, 22 June 2013 (CDT)

This is strange. On User talk:UmbralRaptor it works fine. I'll try to look into it. If you find any other strange behaviour of this prefix let me know. — xZise [talk] 18:49, 22 June 2013 (CDT)
Okay it does work in talk namespaces (like in UmbralRaptor's case). And those characters are in the Unicode block Buginese. I guess the language code for buginese ist bug and some quirk interprets it as a interwiki link. I said quirk, because de:Hauptseite won't show up link on the sidebar. — xZise [talk] 18:56, 22 June 2013 (CDT)
Buginese language and there is a link with the same characters (ᨅᨔ ᨕᨘᨁᨗ) to — xZise [talk] 18:59, 22 June 2013 (CDT)
Okay I changed the prefix name to tracker so if this wiki may use language code like the Wikipedia it won't break compatibility with the Buginese language. — xZise [talk] 19:20, 22 June 2013 (CDT)

Shortcut templates

Hi, I noticed that you created some shortcut templates, like {{P1}} and {{P2}}. However they save you just one character and don't really ease typing, so I don't think they are really necessary. If there's any special functionality that I didn't notice, please tell me. --dgelessus (talk · logs) 10:56, 24 June 2013 (CDT)

Yep see {{If}}. In some cases the mediawiki syntax is awesome, but to preserve newlines in ifs it sucks. — xZise [talk] 11:25, 24 June 2013 (CDT)
Okay, that makes sense. Also, couldn't you just create something like {{P|parameter number}} so you don't have to create a new template for every number? --dgelessus (talk · logs) 11:58, 24 June 2013 (CDT)
Its copied from the English Wikipedia. So I guess there isn't a better way. — xZise [talk] 12:21, 24 June 2013 (CDT)
By the way: Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:P1 and Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:P2 are used in many pages. — xZise [talk] 12:27, 24 June 2013 (CDT)
That's all transcluded from some infoboxes and could easily be changed. But of course there is no problem with the current naming if the numbers don't go up too far. --dgelessus (talk · logs) 13:16, 24 June 2013 (CDT)
I seriously doubt that your suggestion works. The mediawiki syntax is very unpredictable in preserving newlines. For example {{#if: foo|{{P1|bar}}}} won't preserve leading newlines. — xZise [talk] 17:27, 24 June 2013 (CDT)

dropping a note about my edit

Hi there! I rewrote Tutorial: Satellite Coverage to improve readability/grammar. I don't believe I changed the meaning of anything, but I would appreciate it if you had a look! Draeath (talk) 13:25, 24 July 2013 (CDT)

Looks nice, thank you. — xZise [talk] 14:34, 24 July 2013 (CDT)

Page recreation

Hello! I was wondering if I could recreate the PB-X50R Xenon Container page. Would you allow it? --Kerbinorbit (talk) 16:36, 25 July 2013 (CDT)

Yeah if it is an official part of KSP sure. Usually you don't need to ask permission to create a page if it is about KSP. I also noted that the name isn't PB-X15R. — xZise [talk] 16:51, 25 July 2013 (CDT)

Re: My last changes in GRAVMAX Negative Gravioli Detetor page.

Ah, I thought they are example measurements at various celestial bodies (you know - community collected data, rather then parameters from mods/game files or from calculations). Should I remove them or put in another table? (i made a temporary fix by making second table, to separate example data from the border detector values)--Fifi (talk) 18:51, 25 July 2013 (CDT)

I personally have nothing against your table, but they could calculated easily. I removed my Kerbol value from your table, because it was my estimation (my probe had that altitude and I got no reading so calculated the gravitational acceleration). — xZise [talk] 03:49, 26 July 2013 (CDT)
Okok. So if it's already here - maybe I'll finish filling it up - for new pilots it could be easier to use a table for a fast lookup during the mission preparations rather then writing down all variables. ;)

Can email me

After what happened on the KEO page today, I now feel it was a complete waste ever to have contributed to this Wiki. Because of this, it is very, very unlikely I will ever log into my account here again. If you think my contributions would be valuable and have trouble getting my attention via my talk page, my gmail username is the same. Featherwinglove (talk) 15:54, 27 July 2013 (CDT)
