That dang Advanced menu

Hey Zai, the Knowledge Base isn't meant to cover unsupported stuff, as useful as it may be (like Rebaking textures). I encourage simply linking to the Advanced page instead of typing the keystroke each time to activate, so that Residents are well-apprised of its benefits AND what they should NOT expect. =) - Torley-favicon.png Torley on 2009-11-02 @ 3:38 PM PST

Ah, ok, NP. :-)
BTW: Something weird happened to the article... I made my edit and validated it. Then you made your edit and validated it.
Expected would be, that it shows your version as default (stable) and that there is no draft anymore since yours was the latest edit.
However, it is showing yours as default and mine as draft. This is a little strange. It might be that we were both editing at the same time and that this was causing it. I'll fix it in a few, but wanted to mention it, since it's unexpected and may lead to unwanted outcome in the future, when it's unnoticed. (An editor editing your stable page will automatically be prompted to my draft. This isn't desired behaviour.)
More BTW: I'd like to incorporate parts of User:Lum Pfohl/Troubleshooting#Avatar Covered With Onscreen Textures in the article (she mentioned to be fine with using her content in other articles). Also an explanation about how baking works, since it's often mentioned by Residents that "it can't be my system, since other people are seeing it too!". They need to understand that their system is not just baking but also distributing the textures. It seems to be technical overkill but when they don't understand that part, then they might dismiss the article and search for another, since they might think that it's not covering their problem.
And something completly different: When moving pages to a new spot, please move them including all subpages (I think there should always be a checkbox for that). Reason is, to not bury the redirects to translated pages (e.g. <pagename>/de, <pagename>/fr, etc.).
Hm... I think that was all for the moment. And I should go to bed ^^

I see I didn't look to closely and what you added meanwhile. The sentence "These defects are visible to other people..." might be enough for the above mentioned problem.

Strife and Zai, Just a note to ask if you can keep an eye on User_talk:Soft_Linden#sensor_caveat, I noticed that it's linked at least twice on Sensor and quite possibly a few other places (unfortunately there's no what links here for header anchors) so if Soft archives the discussion it will break a bunch of links. I'm not about to go on Soft's talk page and ask him not to ever archive a discussion but since you two keep a very close eye on anything that changes anywhere on the wiki I figured you might see if it's ever disturbed. Thanks. GW (T|C) -- 15:03, 8 November 2009 (UTC)
