UTC clock[edit]

Stumbled over Wikipedia_talk:Editor_assistance/Requests#UTC_clock and installed the script right away. I posted two related questions to Arichnad's talk. One is about the script itself (it displays as "3 00:24" right now, with 3 for December 3, and I wanted to know if that could be changed to 12-03). The other is one you can probably answer better: I don't quite understand what the thread was about... Where does one need a UTC clock (aside from the fact that it's cool) for archiving? I dorftrotteltalk I 00:26, December 3, 2007

"I guess if you are unaware of the new month, a UTC script isn't your biggest issue" :D Um, OTOH... doesn't the second part of your reply relate to that? I mean, I wouldn't look up the exact time to determine whether a thread can be archived. I dorftrotteltalk I 01:02, December 3, 2007
I meant knowing the date is easy because it's in my Windows task bar, so I wouldn't really need it in the userlinks. Btw: Just found this. With seconds! And the year! I dorftrotteltalk I 01:09, December 3, 2007
Yes, it's UTC. I've just copied it to User:Dorftrottel/time.js. Going to fiddle around a bit, until I get rid of the year and the (UTC) tag, since I am using the floating quickbar extension which also moves the userlinks to the left into the quickbar, and the full timestamp with year etc. doesn't fit into the width of the quickbar. I dorftrotteltalk I 01:17, December 3, 2007

Ok, I got it. You can try it by adding importScript('User:Dorftrottel/time.js'); to your monobook.js. I dorftrotteltalk I 01:36, December 3, 2007

I implemented the changes you tried to apply. The seconds should be gone now, I removed them from my time.js. I also changed the format "day month" to "month day" (i.e. as of right now it reads "17:25, Dec 3"). I dorftrotteltalk I 17:26, December 3, 2007
You're welcome. I really just tried to format your preferred settings and then decided I liked them better. If I change my mind about it, there now is a working version which you could always copy from the history of my time.js into you own time.js. Best regards, I dorftrotteltalk I 17:47, December 3, 2007

User:J-stan/Gmail group[edit]

I'm available via Skype. Do I have to install Google talk to include myself on the page (I could do so, just asking to make sure). I think it's a great idea btw and have been pondering the creation of a VoIP collaboration project or some such (e.g. WP:VOIP). User:Dorftroffel 22:29, February 23, 2008

I'm guessing Google talk is easier because the contact is the same as the email address, right? Anyway, I just installed Google talk. User:Dorftroffel 22:34, February 23, 2008
But is that contact list meant for non-wiki-related contact? My idea was to instrumentalise VoIP for collaborative purposes, e.g. mediation etcpp. I believe many situations that take days to weeks (to months to years) to be half-way resolved on-wiki could be sorted out far more quickly (or it could be given a shot anyway). User:Dorftroffel 23:29, February 23, 2008 (btw, I for one am not so much concerned about running into crazy persons, as I'm usually the most crazy person around. but the annoyance factor may be fairly high nevertheless.)
