My userpage on UserBase

Hey, thanks for your long-ago message about my disorganized userpage. When I switched to Kubuntu I was filing bugs against KDE Help Center and some KDE programs, so I started noting them here.

KDE is actually pretty solid these days on my system (well, I've given up on Nepomuk on Kubuntu), my problems mostly lie somewhere else: some program outside the KDE desktop SC, or its Ubuntu package, or Kubuntu package conflicts, or 64-bit issues, or my drivers, or my hardware, It's a mess finding information in the hundreds of relevant web sites and figuring out where to document the workarounds, which is why I keep notes in one place with links to information and bug reports I file.

I realize that by putting this on my userbase page I'm using KDE's good graces for a "Notes on my woes as a Linux user". But I'm familiar with Mediawiki source code and can assure you the load from my four pages is infinitesimal; and Mediawiki search doesn't include the User namespace by default so they don't pollute search results. If you're demanding I move them elsewhere, let me know.

I'm not sure why you ask about KDE on Windows; I contributed a lot to but now I run Kubuntu 98%.

I don't think I can help KDE docs much, Kubuntu leaves me on the trailing edge of KDE releases and I mainly use it as a program launcher for Firefox, Thunderbird, and a terminal. But I've got my KDE wiki and bugbase logins at hand.

Best wishes

edit section

Hi Anne, I am starting to work on Parley/Manual - it's going to become quite long and editing always the full page will get a pain at a certain stage. How can I activate the "edit section" feature of mediawiki? Normally it is automatically activated and we used NOEDITSECTION how do I write an edit section? It should be possible ... Cheers! --SabineEller 10:27, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

Hmm - I thought we had decided to set that as default. Anyway, it's easy to achieve. It's in 'My Preferences' under the Personal tools heading :-) --annew 14:48, 23 May 2010 (UTC)
Ok, got it! Thank you :-) --SabineEller 17:51, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

Still on stable versions etc.

Hi Anne, I would say that Parley/Manual now is ok, but nevertheless I would like to add some more bits and pieces that would become too much for the actual release, simply because time is too short. Now how should we deal with this? Creating maybe a page like Parley/Manual_unstable? At least for the moment?

That sounds a reasonable solution to me. You'll need to link from the main page with a short explanation of its status, but that should be fine.
That is until a general way of doing things is decided? 
Will you be at Akademy? That's the sort of issue we should discuss.

Btw. before I forget this: do you have a template for "Please delete this page"? Cheers :-) --SabineEller 08:33, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

No we don't. We could do, but it's just as easy to simply ask me :-) Very few people have the relevant permissions, and I'm the one that checks almost every day. --annew 15:18, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

edit conflicts

Hi Anne, I am getting continuous edit conflicts on Parley/Manual even if there is apparently nobody working on the page. That is really a weird behaviour. --SabineEller 10:11, 10 June 2010 (CEST)

I just tried by copying the whole manual to Parley/Manual_unstable but even there I get edit conflicts ... so it does not depend from me, but from the page. I'll try to create another test page Parley/Manual_dev and add just some text without any tag. Let's see ...--SabineEller 10:59, 10 June 2010 (CEST)
Parley/Manual_dev works fine - this means that the problem is a template on the page Parley/Manual. Will make a copy now and clean it locally. --SabineEller 11:02, 10 June 2010 (CEST)
Parley/Manual looks fine for editing now. Is that your work, or has it just corrected itself? I'm wondering if someone had an edit window open and forgot to close it. I've been guilty of that myself, more than once, though I think it wasn't me this time :-) --annew 13:05, 10 June 2010 (CEST)
Hmmm strange - it still does it here ... and only on that page and the subpage where I made a full copy/paste - the page where I took out the templates + the translation part works fine. --SabineEller 14:45, 10 June 2010 (CEST)
