AFD vote counter
My AfD vote counter doesn't count my "Keep" votes. Why is this? Can I manually add some to my page so it is correct? NickGibson3900 - Talk - Sign my Guestbook 22:54, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

- That is curious indeed. I will investigate this. →Σσς. (Sigma) 01:49, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
Can you restore my last 4 edits in the Communism article? They were removed by these 2 guys because of this nonsense:   Zozs (talk) 01:19, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
- I'd rather not. Let thei error-riddled theories collapse under their own weight in the light of cold truth. →Σσς. (Sigma) 01:48, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Hey, I just tried to archive my talk page for the first time and the bot gave up:  Any ideas? —Designate (talk) 02:05, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
Hi Σ. (I've also had some discussion with Cyberpower on these issues). Although you and your colleagues have done some excellent work migrating tools from the ToolServer to Labs - and I realise that this migration was not your policy, I feel there is still a lot of room for improvement. In particular, talks at the recent Wikimania in London between admins who rely heavily on some of these tools agree on a couple of points. Being migrated by non-admins, some important aspects may have been missed when (re)developing these scripts (I hate the analogy, but it's a bit like having cars designed by non-drivers).
Presentation - the actual graphic user interfaces have default fonts that are far too small to be useful (Pages Created), and the default list too short (Pages Created). Also with pages created, it was mentioned that perhaps a dropdown menu to select the most often requested search criteria would be extremely helpful
Edit Counter: There are still links around the site that are not pointing to this which is the default counter mostly used. It was also felt that the GUI is not strictly an improvement: for example, why was it needed to split the information across three pages? Most admins preferred the rapid overview by having all the elements on one page.
There is also the question of the remaining tools in the suite created by Scottywong which are most important for admins and users doing research for RfA, AfD, SPI, and NPP, etc.
I fully realise that the work of migrating has been dumped by the Foundation on the volunteer community but while the new scripts and server may well perform better than the ToolServer, there was previously nothing much broken with the actual displays that needed fixing.
