Talk page headers and archiving[edit]

Hello! Just as a note, you might be interested in a discussion I've started, Template talk:Talk header § Arbitrary placement. IMHO, having a {{Talk header}} only helps on any talk page, and the template documentation should actually be changed to suggest such placement (except on totally empty talk pages, of course).

IIRC, the documentation for the automated archiving suggests a few default configuration values to be specified whenever User:MiszaBot/config is placed on a talk page, despite the fact they're already set by default. Maybe those parameters shouldn't be removed, as who knows what kind of changes in possible in the future, and why they have been suggested to be set explicitly. Also, I've always seen "old" values such as 31 and 61, and very rarely 30 and 60; who knows, maybe that's up to some old discussion or something. :) — Dsimic (talk | contribs) 02:42, 18 July 2015 (UTC)

I'll hold off on changing any further configs on the talk pages I frequent. I changed it from 31 to 30 days because, while the documentation at User:MiszaBot/config uses 31 in an example, {{Auto archiving notice}} uses 30 in an example. Since the examples contradict each other, I made an executive decision to go with the round number.  ;-) – voidxor (talk | contrib) 02:47, 18 July 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. Please don't get me wrong, I'd also be much happier with round values for the "old" parameter. Maybe you'd like to start a discussion about the discrepancy in "old" value examples, and I'll support you regarding the round numbers? Unless there are some technical or logical advantages of those "round + 1" values, round values would be a much more logical choice. — Dsimic (talk | contribs) 02:54, 18 July 2015 (UTC)
In the interest of full disclosure, I just got my doctor to rewrite a 30-day prescription as a 90-day one, so I clearly have round numbers on the brain. I'll start such a proposal on Monday. Or maybe, I'll just make the change to the User:MiszaBot/config documentation and cite {{Auto archiving notice}} in my edit summary. I've become a lot more confident at being bold recently. – voidxor (talk | contrib) 03:02, 18 July 2015 (UTC)
I hope that the prescription you're mentioning isn't for anything serious. I'd say that you can freely go with changing the documentation to round numbers, but I'd still suggest that you also start a discussion, which might also ask for comments on why the examples specify default values for a few parameters. Maybe some of the bots (used?) to archive posts older than 30 days only if 31 is specified as the parameter value, or who knows what's the history of the whole thing. — Dsimic (talk | contribs) 03:12, 18 July 2015 (UTC)
@Dsimic: Nah, just allergies. I changed the example in the documentation, but don't quite follow what you're proposing I propose. Why don't you propose it and let me know if you'd like me to comment. – voidxor (talk | contrib) 21:59, 20 July 2015 (UTC)
Makes sense, please have a look at User talk:Misza13 § Round "old" numbers. If that yields some responses, then we should be able to also check about the default parameter values. — Dsimic (talk | contribs) 10:25, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Virtual disk[edit]

Hello! Any chances, please, to have a look at the discussion taking place on Talk:Virtual disk § Requested move 11 July 2015? I was also invited there, and I feel that we'd need input from more technically inclined editors. Any comments there would be appreciated! — Dsimic (talk | contribs) 07:53, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done – voidxor 21:49, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

For your general diligence, orientation to details, and true teamwork approach. Keep up the good work! — Dsimic (talk | contribs) 14:26, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
@Dsimic: Awe! Thank you buddy. I'm amazed as of late at just how well we work together! Let's both keep up the good work. Hopefully we'll get the chance to meet some day at a meetup or editathon. Thanks again! – voidxor 19:45, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
You're welcome. :) Of course, I'd like to meet you in person, but I'm in a small country far, far away... We'll see what the future holds. :) — Dsimic (talk | contribs) 09:00, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
