NOTE: To make reading this page easier, when replying to a comment or edit that I have left please quote the comment and/or link to the page where the comment/edit was. Please use a new header (hit the plus sign to the right of the edit button on the top menu bar) and use the {{message}} tag at the beginning of your comment. I will generally reply here to keep discussions unfragmented unless you specifically request otherwise.

Question2.JPG I saw you were playing with Template:LSL Generic/request, it's a generic LSL template that can be used with functions, events and constants; not just functions. -- Strife Onizuka 13:57, 8 June 2008 (PDT)

  • I tweaked the generic one to create a notice for the request page (since it's a single use item I didn't create a new template I just copied over my tweaked css to it) just to clarify to people that non of the functions on that page are active and are just proposed functions.

Employee Category

Question2.JPGHeyas :-) Re: added Category:Linden Lab Employees not sure why this wasn't added before:
Char Linden removed the Category from Dusty's userpage some time ago. I don't know why, as there was no comment anywhere. --Zai signature.png (talk|contribs) 14:18, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the info, I don't feel like pre-emptively removing it again just because it's been removed before since he is a LL employee but if it's removed again then it's removed again. GW (T|C) -- 16:04, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
It's possible that some Lindens are really contractors and aren't employees. -- Strife (talk|contribs) 17:22, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Linking localized versions

Question2.JPG Heyas Gordon! :-)
Sorry for just undo-ing your change, though the German header shouldn't be in the English article. Furthest would be to have the English header {{Help|noMultiLang=*}} in there, though I think that LL doesn't want to have that one either. I hope we won't have to deal with this situation for long and that the Help Portal is soon merged into KB articles.
As of linking localized versions: I put together a list that's readable for a bot like Wiki, though I'm not able to fully deploy it, since it contains lots of LLO articles, which I'm not able to edit. I'll poke for some Linden help on this one, am meeting with Noelle on Wednesday and am hoping that the issue is resolved till the end of the week. I'd ask you to not create redirects until then, since it would then make it harder to do the linking in an automatted way. It's an ugly situation and I hoped that the KB wouldn't be announced on the blog until it's resolved... though well :-/ ...

Is there a way to do header linking like we currently do with articles that have a articlename/es, articlename/de, etc.... article in the general help header, like the german version of the article seems to have done? There has to be a better way to do this. GW (T|C) -- 23:18, 20 October 2009 (UTC)
Also, the German version of the article has a help header so that needs to be dealt with, I'll assume that this is an unwritten LL rule not just you asserting your preference as an unwritten rule, if there aren't going to be help headers on KB articles then it needs to be made into a written rule and it needs to be applied to all languages of an article either with the header or without, I think with is better in the long run even if that means a lot of work, checking and implementing this could be done automatically with a bot.
