hi :) könntest du bitte bei Zielgruppe im Quelltext den rdf-code (hatte ich vorsichtshalber mit der CC-Lizenz mitkopiert) checken? Bin mir nicht sicher, was der genau macht und ob wir den wirklich brauchen. vielen dank! --cosmea 10:39, 28 October 2005 (CEST)

RDF Zeug hat vermutlich mit RSS-Feeds zu tun, enthält aber nur Links zu der CreativeCommons Lizenz die wir im übrigen auch selbst auf unserem Wiki verwenden. Habs mal gekürzt und nur den reinen Link dringelassen. Mutante 19:00, 28 October 2005 (CEST)

DrOwl on changing skin settings

Hay MUT... Tiz i the doc... i was playing around with Skins the other day... now i seem to have a blank skin, and can not change it becouse every time i log in i just get a blank window... =( any idear how to change my "skin" when i can not do it directly my self??? is there an "commandline user config" --DrOwl (2005/08/16 13:47

I searched on the mysql wiki database and i found this:

mysql> describe user;
| Field            | Type                | Null | Key | Default | Extra          |
| user_id          | int(5) unsigned     |      | PRI | NULL    | auto_increment |
| user_name        | varchar(255) binary |      | MUL |         |                |
| user_real_name   | varchar(255) binary |      |     |         |                |
| user_password    | tinyblob            |      |     |         |                |
| user_newpassword | tinyblob            |      |     |         |                |

| user_touched     | varchar(14) binary  |      |     |         |                |
| user_token       | varchar(32) binary  |      |     |         |                |
9 rows in set (0.00 sec)

mysql> select user_options from user where user_name="DrOwl";
... <snip> ...
skin=admonobook    <--------- there it is
...< snip> ...

Unfortunately the whole options are crammed together into one big blob, instead of being one option per column. So the updating isnt that nice and quickly as it could. Will still fix your skin setting back to default "monobook" now by exporting it to a file,changing file and importing again. Mutante 15:26, 16 Aug 2005 (CEST)

bash> mysqldump -u root -p -w "user_name='DrOwl'" -t wikidb user > drowl.sql

replaced "admonobook" with "monobook" in [[vi]].

mysql -u root -p wikidb < drowl.sql

ERROR 1062 at line 12: Duplicate entry '5' for key 1

arr,not like this. Looks like i have to drop you before, using an update statement fails somehow...

Password Messup

Arrr,DAMN; now i messed up and deleted your user info. About to reconstruct it and give you a new password and default settings...arff Murphy Mutante 16:01, 16 Aug 2005 (CEST)

BIG MESSUP, accidentally overwritten ALL passwords with new string instead of only DrOwl's . OUCH,, have manually reset to passwords from backup. If you have any trouble logging in, leave a note here. Sorry. Mutante 17:18, 16 Aug 2005 (CEST)

=) did you reset my PW back to what it was??? i can not login =( i wasnt onling lastnight or i would of hassled you then =) ---Loves and Joys your DrOwl

How do I change a user's password?

Assuming that $wgPasswordSalt is set to true (the default), you can use the following SQL query:

UPDATE user SET user_password = MD5(CONCAT(user_id, '-',MD5('somepass'))) WHERE user_name = 'whatever';

Where obviously "somepass" is changed the password you want to set and "whatever" is changed to the user name as it is listed in the table "user". --- from:

Mr. Mutante
The intermap and the template blank wiki page are excellent.

Mutante, MoonEdit ist der Kracher! -- MattisManzel

Hey Mutante, meld dich mal bei mir - am besten per Jabber. -- zakx

Stimmt, mutante erreicht man nur noch über's wiki :) MattisManzel

hiho, wollt nur mal hallo sagen weil mir langweilig ist =) --LaGGeR 21:55, 16 Apr 2005 (CEST) noch mal ich ;) hab grad deine message gelesen, lustig, ich wollt auch grad ne ramones page anfangen ich kann die ja gleich ein bisschen ausbauen :) danke fürs umräumen bei mir, ich gucks mir sofort an.. danke danke, bis demnächst.. --LaGGeR

new template

very snazzy :D easy on the eyes to..i like the richness in color..its nice a subtle as opposed to the old wiki..this one has more colors to discern and i appreciate little things like that.. details..but not too much. simple, practical and comfortable to use. well done mate have you checked it out with difference themes? Kunda

I like it to but the big white box makes my head hurt... ill have to make my own skin i think =) + the text at the top logon preffes etc is black on a black back-ground =) DrOwl

Yea, its not finished yet. We should make the default css together and/or each of us makes a css and we integrate them in the "Skin" options to choose from. I put the css i messed with up here. You can play with it (i hope) using your [[User:Fnord/monobook.css]] user style page. Check out my own User:Mutante/monobook.css for copy & pasting,too. I added a few hacks for rounded corners that i found on Wikipedia. Combined with the changed default template, it looks a lot better. Mutante 20:54, 8 Feb 2005 (CET)

its all about me -Kunda

muta, can you add Yoga to the top categories box..or is that not on topic politically incorrect inappropriate and just plain wrong? -Kunda

of course it is, will do. i just copied the categories from that proposal for a new main page. Mutante 12:27, 16 Apr 2005 (CEST)

comment just for the heck of it

not really in fact..its because of this:

  • wiki.s23.org resolves to the is-root.de homepage..and not wiki
  • can you bring back rc.s23.org ?

ya, im working on it.(the domain config and redirects). I also want wiki.s23.org back as the main URL for our wiki (without breaking the other one(s)). Mutante 01:06, 5 May 2005 (CEST)

  • im constipated..dont tell anyone..k?


Ok, i wont. Mutante 01:06, 5 May 2005 (CEST)

I REALLY want this product from Amazon:

ISBN B0000E3HK0 <- Robin of Sherwood (UK-Import) COMPLETE DVD Set

damn, isbn links need to be fixed (and that in between page). just go to amazon manually and search for that ASIN (ISBN) above. its hell of expensive though, just a reminder for myself


Something is definitely wrong here. There is a Destroy All Humans! videogame advertisement on the bottom of each page. The words are huge in the sidebar menu to the left. The tabs that are supposed to be on top (user page, discussion, edit, + , history, move, and watch) are descending downwards. And the user menu on the very top is on the left instead of the right. Just wanted to let you know. JarlaxleArtemis 00:53, 10 May 2005 (CEST)

I think its seems to be a CSS issue since it is fine viewing through firefox. I confirm the same above results when browsing with explorer. -Kunda 06:36, 10 May 2005 (CEST)

Oh, its an IE problem. No wonder didnt notice it then. Dont know anybody using that program. Good reason to switch. (ok,ok, i will care for it later, its just so tempting to ignore IE css trouble) Mutante 20:22, 11 May 2005 (CEST) Found the bug. It was caused by installing the latest update to the RSS extension by Duesntrieb. A </nowiki> had slipped in during copy and paste from the wiki site. Removed it from ./extensions/RSSExtension.php. Fixed a few minor errors caused by adding the Top Categories box to the left and now we are [valid xhtml transitional] again and IE shows the page a lot better. Mutante 20:56, 13 May 2005 (CEST)

Hi. Me again, reporting more IE/MSN trouble. When I first access the main page now, it is displayed in some weird non-wiki format that I can't really explain. Oh, wait I just figured it out. That strange format is only displayed at http://is-root.de/wiki/index.php/Main_Page, whereas the correct format is displayed at http://is-root.de/wiki/Main_Page. ¡Ay caramba! You guys aren't very MSN friendly, are you? JarlaxleArtemis 21:43, 27 Jun 2005 (CEST)

And how do http://s23.org/wiki/Main_Page or http://s23.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page look for you? We just removed the "index.php" part from URLs with an apache alias,but i wouldnt know how that should have influenced something MS specific..hmmm Mutante 22:29, 27 Jun 2005 (CEST)

Those both look fine. Look at Wikipedia, though. It's now dead. JarlaxleArtemis 02:15, 28 Jun 2005 (CEST)

juicing up content organization (a vote)

lets make simple just a little bit more complex. lets tweek with the representation of content. start using some <div>s here and there. i nominate you (aktion, mutante SR, KSC, fnordiliciousness) to teach the rest of us how to do that. all in favor say 'Eye!'

range blocks

i wanted to block a range, becouse it was on a few spam databases... but i got... "The sysop ability to create range blocks is disabled."

i wandering if we should make a little script that searches for new spam ranges and auto bans that range for say 23 days...

i thourgh if this stuff before there are loads of IP black lists... some thing like:-

  • get ip black list
  • diff list to find new spamer range's
  • add new spammers to ban our list #Q) is the ban list in the data base
  1. Q) can we add to the ban list with SQL?
  2. Q) need to find which black list we want to use

this will not proctect us from all spam, just people that are allrerady known spammers, but every little halps.

  1. A) yes
  2. A) yes
  3. A) i dont know

structure of sql table 'ipblock'

mysql> describe ipblocks;
| Field         | Type               | Null | Key | Default | Extra          |
| ipb_id        | int(8)             |      | PRI | NULL    | auto_increment |
| ipb_address   | varchar(40) binary |      | MUL |         |                |
| ipb_user      | int(8) unsigned    |      | MUL | 0       |                |
| ipb_by        | int(8) unsigned    |      |     | 0       |                |
| ipb_reason    | tinyblob           |      |     |         |                |
| ipb_timestamp | varchar(14) binary |      |     |         |                |
| ipb_auto      | tinyint(1)         |      |     | 0       |                |
| ipb_expiry    | varchar(14) binary |      |     |         |                |

Example of one table row:

| ipb_id | ipb_address   | ipb_user | ipb_by | ipb_reason     | ipb_timestamp  | ipb_auto | ipb_expiry     |
|     61 | |        0 |      6 | spammer (bot?) | 20050925002321 |        0 | 20051018002321 |

Mutante 21:31, 30 Sep 2005 (CEST)

Blocking ranges with CIDR notation

In "ipb_address" there are no wildcards like 192.168.23.* allowed, i asked on #mediawiki and found out we need to use CIDR notation, see [1]. That means we have to insert a $IP/24 if we want to ban a Class C net. " represents the 256 IPv4 addresses through inclusive"

s23wiki bot to combat spam

hey..idea for a bot-wiki function...auto block ip if

spammers on the User_Contributions

it sucks to see that in User_Contributions we have in the rank #9 with 142 edits Mr or Mrs. and a list list of his/her contributions. + some other prolific spammer who make our fine list. Nothing we can do about this, no?

Do something about what? About the fact that they are spamming, about them showing up in user contributions list or about not enough real users to make them drop in the list? Mutante 14:50, 12 November 2005 (CET)

yeah, I got the mail. it seems a lot of things changed in the new round. are the homeplanets now destroyable/conquerable ?? Finn

yep, I saw it. no problem. Finn

mutante, maybe a wiki upgrade/spamblacklist tutorial

The Barbelith wiki are having some trouble with spam..as probably are other many tiny small wikis. maybe we can write up a quick and dirty upgrading tut, like a quick and dirty field guide. I'll start the page. Mediawiki_Upgrade_Tutorial_with_Spamblacklist_patch





Just to let you know that the "csv" files are not actually in csv format, because the data is separated by semicolons rather than commas. Could you please fix this? 09:17, 25 February 2006 (CET)

Well, first i had commas, but then Excel didnt want to eat them automatically without having to set the delimiter manually. I already made fun of Excel why they dont call it .ssv files instead. After some testing by Cosmea it turned out semicolon seperated is being opened automatically by both Excel and OpenOffice, therefore i decided to leave it this way. Do you have problems using this in a specific application? Maybe i should just provide both formats. Mutante 12:04, 25 February 2006 (CET)

Now you can just choose from both, real csv and "pseudo csv aka ssv". Wikistats. Mutante 14:01, 25 February 2006 (CET)

Wiki List

The wiki list here:

The links in your page are all lower case, about 25% of them will fail because of this. I commented out the link to your page for right now, but feel free to uncomment it after this is fixed:

Statistics for various Wikimedia Projects

I want to thank you for setting up the statistics pages here on this website, and we are using these statistics to help with the design of the main Wikibook portal page.

I just wanted to let you know that there is a request to add a few languages to the list of Wikibooks that are being automatically generated. I'm not exactly sure how you want to handle these types of requests, so I put up a list of at least the additional Wikibooks to include here: http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk%3AList_of_Wikibooks

Some of these are surprisingly rather large, and certainly need to be listed in a statistical summary of all of the Wikibooks projects. Growth is such a fun thing to look at.

Thanks in advance: -- wikibooks:User:Robert Horning

Numerical and single word page names

These make me laugh, and I want more.

I wonder what it would be like if every page name always "just linked" without ever using []'s or CamelCase ... It seems like it would make things even more fun because every 'term' would always be 'resolvable' to the community definition ... Ownut

there you go with another 4711. Yeah that idea has been around some time ago, and i really like it too, maybe we can hack the mediawiki one day to test it. Mutante 14:36, 9 May 2006 (CEST)

E-Mailfunktionen des s23 Wikis

Hallo Mutante,

ich glaube, dass die E-Mailfunktionen hier nicht richtig (oder gar nicht implementiert sind), denn ich kann meine E-mailadresse nicht bestätigen, d.h. ich bekomme keine Bestätigungsmail an meine Adresse geschickt. Auch die Baisfunktion "email password" geht nicht. Wäre nett, wenn es eingeschaltet werden würde. --Wikinaut 13:32, 9 May 2006 (CEST)

Richtig, Email ist gar nicht implementiert, wurde aber auch bisher noch nicht wirklich vermisst. Wozu moechtest du eine Bestätigungsmail, wir verlangen doch gar keine Überprüfung beim anmelden. Wenn Passwörter zurückzusetzen waren hab ich das bei unserer geringen Useranzahl bisher manuell gemacht. Aber ich werden mich trotzdem mal drum kuemmern bald Mutante 14:34, 9 May 2006 (CEST)
