Hi Raylu, welcome to Wikipedia. :) I removed the link the image you added to bowler hat because the page it came from (although it was a .gov site) had a copyright notice. Also, you might want to read the image use policy and the picture tutorial to find out how to upload images so that they display on articles correctly. :) fabiform | talk 04:06, 12 May 2004 (UTC)

Hello world program[edit]

There is no such thing as the JAVA programming language. It's Java. Look at [1] (which is the authority on the subject) and see how many instances of JAVA over Java you see. Your other contributions to the article were very welcome though. CGS 00:36, 13 May 2004 (UTC).

Hm, I thought I saw somewhere that it was supposed to be JAVA. I feel stupid now that I realize I have a Java programming book in my room that only capitalizes the J. --raylu 23:20, May 13, 2004 (UTC)

"Credit"[edit] steals stuff from wikipedia, not the other way around. --Jiang 08:30, 21 May 2004 (UTC)

Cheat code[edit]

Why did you remove the cheat code MOTHERFUCKENKIWIBASTARD from cheat code? JIP | Talk 18:06, 23 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Well, like the article says, it wasn't very "family friendly." raylu 01:28, August 13, 2005 (UTC)


Please see The tree of the Ilama and Ilama, the latter was blanked by the anon who created the former, SqueakBox

OK. I added "Ilama may also refer to The tree of the Ilama." to the Ilama page. raylu 20:39, August 13, 2005 (UTC)


thanks ---- see the note I left on the image page. dab () 21:11, 13 August 2005 (UTC)

Visual Basic Classic Wikibook[edit]

I see you have contributed to the Visual Basic article on Wikipedia. Any chance you would like to join in editing the wikibook: --Kjwhitefoot 09:27, 30 September 2005 (UTC)


Hi, I've had a request on WP:RFPP to remove your monobook javascript from Category:Articles that need to be wikified. You may be surprised to find that it's even in this category! So was I.

The problem appears to be that MediaWiki interprets templates even in javascript. You have the following text:

  • document.editform.wpTextbox1.value = "{{wikify}}\n\n"

If you change it along the lines of the following, the template will not be recognised by MediaWiki and the page should no longer appear in the category.

  • document.editform.wpTextbox1.value = "{{wik"+"ify}}\n\n"

I'll leave the checking of javascript syntax and whatnot up to you; I'm a server-side kind of guy and it isn't my speciality. Sorry for the inconvenience. --Tony SidawayTalk 17:01, 2 October 2005 (UTC)

I've put /* <nowiki> */ 's in your monobook.js which should fix this problem. Hope you don't mind. Rich Farmbrough 12:30, 9 October 2005 (UTC)
Egh, been away for a while; thanks. raylu 03:02, 11 October 2005 (UTC)

Spelling correction[edit]

Well done spotting my typing error. But you missed "futher" for "further"! :-)

By the way, why is it funny that Bush said that more imports were coming from overseas? Imports to the USA from Mexico and Canada do not come from overseas, and he was correctly noting that the proportion of imports from these countries was decreasing.

Catholic Encyclopedia[edit]

Yes it is OK in a licence sense, and if it's labelled NPOV in a policy sense. Still better for it to be updates and cleaned of POV though. Rich Farmbrough 22:00, 17 October 2005 (UTC)

Edit summaries[edit]

First off, thank you for your work you do here. I noticed you tagging Dale W. Meyerrose as a copyvio, and I just thought I'd let you know that you should try to use edit summaries whenever possible. It helps other editors know what you are doing and saves them the time from checking to see what changes you made. :) -Greg Asche (talk) 00:31, 18 October 2005 (UTC)

That is fine if you forgot, just making sure you know, because it makes life easier on the rest of us. And it doesn't really matter, I like it if people reply on my page and I do so on theirs (it makes the new messages box light up), but when I post on someone's talk, I add it to my watchlist in case they respond there. -Greg Asche (talk) 01:26, 18 October 2005 (UTC)


See the bottom of my talk page :-) --HappyCamper 22:38, 18 October 2005 (UTC)

LD debate Wikify Marker[edit]

Would you mind explaining what exactly you feel is inconsistent the guidlines. I havn't been around very long and I'm not really objecting to the marking. But some specification as to what to change would be helpful.--Jsn4 06:59, 7 December 2005 (UTC)

Get pagename[edit]

"var target = document.title.split("Editing ")[1].split(" - ")[0];" works (in edit mode) and "var target = document.title.split(" - ")[0];" work when not in edit mode. You can add a strip_namespace function if you don't want the name space (ie User, Talk, Project) to show. "target" for this page would yeild "User talk:Raylu". Hope that helps.Voice-of-AllT|@|ESP 03:23, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

quickWikify script[edit]

Just a note to thank you for your quickWikify script at WikiProject User scripts: I've found it immensely useful in recent times. Best of all, though, I've adapted it to other purposes, such as adding CVG deletion notices to AfD pages and automatically adding {{cvgproj}} (and a rating) to computer and video game-related talk pages. I couldn't have done that without your original code, so thank you. You've saved me hours. :) RandyWang (chat me up/fix me up) 21:43, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

I don't use this, but I left a note on the associated talk page. Would you consider doing a Quick de-wikify js? It would be ridiculously useful for Wikibooks and other projects which import WP articles as seed material. Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 21:30, 6 November 2007 (UTC)
If you can do it, we'd love to have it still. Thanks! – Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 16:10, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

Invitation to events in June and July: bot, script, template, and Gadget makers wanted[edit]

I invite you to the yearly Berlin hackathon, 1-3 June. Registration is now open. If you need financial assistance or help with visa or hotel, then please register by May 1st and mention it in the registration form.

This is the premier event for the MediaWiki and Wikimedia technical community. We'll be hacking, designing, teaching, and socialising, primarily talking about ResourceLoader and Gadgets (extending functionality with JavaScript), the switch to Lua for templates, Wikidata, and Wikimedia Labs.

We want to bring 100-150 people together, including lots of people who have not attended such events before. User scripts, gadgets, API use, Toolserver, Wikimedia Labs, mobile, structured data, templates -- if you are into any of these things, we want you to come!

I also thought you might want to know about other upcoming events where you can learn more about MediaWiki customization and development, how to best use the web API for bots, and various upcoming features and changes. We'd love to have power users, bot maintainers and writers, and template makers at these events so we can all learn from each other and chat about what needs doing.

Check out the the developers' days preceding Wikimania in July in Washington, DC and our other events.

Best wishes! - Sumana Harihareswara, Wikimedia Foundation's Volunteer Development Coordinator. Please reply on my talk page, here or at Sumana Harihareswara, Wikimedia Foundation Volunteer Development Coordinator 22:07, 3 April 2012 (UTC)
