Removal of deletion tags from the target of an active deletion discussion[edit]

Please stop your large scale recategorisation of mathematicians. There should be some WP:CONSENSUS about how this. This is begining to look like a breach of WP:POINT and could lead to a block. Consider this a final warning before a block.--Salix alba (talk): 08:38, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

So far, the only responses to my edits have been either to (a) undo my edits, (b) nominate my content for deletion, or (c) threaten blocks. Isn't this supposed to be the encyclopedia that anyone can edit? It looks like I can only get new content in if I'm willing to spend hours policing my edits and arguing with you guys.

I've responded on your talk page so as to keep the discussion in one place.--Salix alba (talk): 09:19, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

MathJax colors[edit]

You recently made some significant changes to the Help:Displaying a formula page. Amongst those were changes to the colors. I would just care to inform you that the broken colors are a bug that we accidentally recently introduced and did not notice. We accidentally removed the cancel and color extensions from the configuration. It will soon be fixed after this is merged and deployed, bugzilla:63574. —TheDJ (talkcontribs) 15:53, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know. I've updated the help page.--Salix alba (talk): 16:10, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

Math demo[edit]

Hi,

I just wanted to point you to the demo of the Math extension 2.0 http://math2.beta.wmflabs.org/wiki/Dedekind_sum

--Physikerwelt (talk) 16:37, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

@Physikerwelt: Cool. I've logged in but I can't seem to create a page getting "Fatal error: Call to a member function getTitle() on a non-object in /mnt/vagrant/mediawiki/extensions/MathSearch/MathObject.php on line 136". I've looked at some of the other pages there eg [1] which is full of various red messages. Hopefully these are minor bugs.--Salix alba (talk): 17:37, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for testing that. The getTitle problem is realted to the MathSearch extension, which is just a research prototype with tons of bugs. On the page [2] I see two red links.
  1. Failed to parse(<math_latexml_invalidxml>): \pagecolor {Black}\color {Yellow}{\text{Yellow}} (and similar)
  2. Failed to parse(<math_latexml_invalidxml>): {\cfrac {x}{1+{\cfrac {{\cancel {y}}}{{\cancel {y}}}}}}={\cfrac {x}{2}}
I think those should be fixable by adjustint the matjax configuration. Are there more I did not see? --Physikerwelt (talk) 20:38, 20 April 2014 (UTC)
A lot better now. I had a lot of complaints about server failures the first time I looked at things.
Oh it looks like MathJax has problems displaying [3] the I'm getting
GET http://en.wikipedia.org/extensions/MathMenu.js 404 (Not Found)
GET http://en.wikipedia.org/extensions/MathZoom.js 404 (Not Found)  
Any ideas?--Salix alba (talk): 21:07, 20 April 2014 (UTC)
Does that mean that MathJax does not work at en.wikipedia.org?--Physikerwelt (talk) 06:23, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
If it helps the error I get on math2.beta.wmflabs.org is "Failed to parse(MathML (with SVG fallback): Invalid response ('There was a problem during the HTTP request: 500 Internal Server Error') from server 'http://mathoid.eqiad.wmflabs:10042':): \scriptstyle n_{e}". I get this quite frequently hitting the random page button.--Salix alba (talk): 21:22, 20 April 2014 (UTC)
I think it's a problem of the mathoid servier. Loading the page with action=purge gain usually solves the issue. But I don't know what's wrong since the error disapears on the second atempt. --Physikerwelt (talk) 06:23, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
I've tracked down the problem with Help Formula a bit [4] is the smallest broken example.
Thanks the issue is related to the heading === MathJax === that produces an element with id="MathJax" it seems that MathJax does not like that.
I changed the timeout on the mathoid server... Now the domo creates better error messages. --Physikerwelt (talk) 08:07, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

AWB on Mac[edit]

Hi, you added information to Wikipedia talk:AutoWikiBrowser/Mono and Wine relating to Mac use, thanks for that. Note that if you install ie6 via winetricks this should sort out the problem you mention in relation to diffs being appended to the previous ones. Thanks Rjwilmsi 17:56, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

Raincode COBOL deletion[edit]

Hi Salix.

Can you tell me why the IBM COBOL and the Unisys MCP pages are still on wikipedia ? You deleted the Raincode COBOL page for reasons(?), and not those two? Thank you for your help,

Regards, --Fontignie (talk) 09:27, 5 May 2014 (UTC)

Each page is deleted on its own merits RainCode COBOL was deleted following Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/RainCode COBOL (2nd nomination). There are very few mentions of it in web searches. So it failed Wikipedia:Notability. IBM COBOL on the other hand is one of the major versions of cobol with 4 million results in google search. While a very week article it could easily be expanded to pass. There is no page Unisys MCP this looks like it means either Burroughs MCP or Unisys MCP programming languages both of which would pass Wikipedia:Notability.--Salix alba (talk): 11:28, 5 May 2014 (UTC)

Apologies for erroneous rollback[edit]

Sorry for rolling back your edit on the "Britain First" page; seems the vandalism was spotted by several of us at once and I accidentally rolled back your version instead of the vandal's edit. Arkady Rose (talk) 12:26, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

No problems, these thing happen.--Salix alba (talk): 13:05, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

Help write something?[edit]

Since you've done a lot of work on Nothing, I was wondering if you could help build an article on the rather abstract concept of Something. Cheers! bd2412 T 03:15, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
