[edit] Reverting

Welcome! I noticed you're getting involved from the get-go and making a lot of good edits, that's fantastic. Just wanted to mention something on reverting. [1] While I've agreed with most of your edits, here it seems you inadvertently took out a perfectly good and unrelated edit along with the bad. Now, in all fairness, this is the type of mistake the oldest hands here make - and like anything, it's so easily undone it's nothing to lose sleep over. So just watch for that sort of thing (as I always have do!) keep up the good work! Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png

Thanks for keeping an eye on me. I'll be careful. BryanCTC 00:25, 18 November 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Thanks, man

Thanks for finishing the senior prom subtitles. -Stinkoman KTalk 21:22, 20 November 2006 (UTC)

Was a fun way for me to learn the ropes. (still learning) BryanCTC 09:14, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Sig

Hi Bryan. I really like your sig, but it's doing funny things in at least a couple of browsers. It collides with the line below it in IE, and I don't think you meant for the T and C to be underlined like they are in Firefox. In both browsers, there is too much space on the left side. Also, I'm curious why you put the em dash at the end and then forced it to appear at the beginning. I tried to fix it, but I only made a little progress so I reverted it. Maybe you can give it another look. Thanks! Talk atcha later! — It's dot com 16:26, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

Thanks. I may go back to something simpler because of the rendering issues. I'm not sure what I was thinking with the mdash placement. The attempt to "underlay" the asterisk pretty much causes all the rendering woes. BTW, at least on my FF, the T and C aren't underlined as they are on your screenshot there. Weird. Anyway, I'll revisit my sig — I knew it had issues but gave up on them until someone complained... now someone did =). BryanCTC 18:15, 2 December 2006 (UTC)
Okay, moved the mdash to it's logical place, and for now ditched the underlayed asterisk. Render's a lot cleaner on my FF and in Safari. Haven't tested on a windows box yet. BryanCTC 18:52, 2 December 2006 (UTC)
There were a couple unmatched <span> tags — that's why some of the STUFF lists were being resetted and why the timestamps looked strange on this page. Should be okay now :) Trey56 19:02, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

[edit] MediaWiki

Hey man, just a shot in the dark, so ignore this if you don't know what I'm talking about. The wiki runs on MediaWiki, which runs on PHP and MySQL. You can download and install it locally if you want to play with the subtitles and the Greasemonkey script. Loafing 23:24, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

mediawiki is very cool, in fact I've managed to migrate my workplace from using "Twiki" to mediawiki. But, whyever the whatever intent behind this message I'm sorry I don't get it. I can happily play with subtitles on my own. (I only need to meddle with things to change the "characters.xml"). BryanCTC 02:08, 11 March 2007 (UTC)
Nevermind, then ;-) Loafing 21:14, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Why don't you look at my work for the looking old subtitles? I had to face the same situation.

[edit] Great jaerb

Nice job helping revert. A note, though - don't bother leaving "please stop" messages on vandal talk pages. It only emboldens them, and certainly won't get them to stop. If it were a user with a decent history doing dumb things, that's one thing. But it's a waste of your time with a vandal. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 22:31, 16 April 2007 (UTC)

Noted. Wasn't sure what to do actually to prevent further damage. Glad an Admin was on to block it quickly.BryanCTC 22:35, 16 April 2007 (UTC)
What I do is (here I reveal my secrets!) continually refresh the user's Contributions page. When a (top) link shows up, open History in a new tab. Then open the user's version (should be the top, unless it was already reverted) in another tab, and plain-ole-regular-click-on-it open the previous user's edit (second from top). Watch the user's edit - if it is vandalism, switch back to the previous edit tab, edit, and revert. Goes really quickly. Then refresh the Contributions again, and when there's downtime refresh Recent Changes too. The best a non-sysop-priveleged user can do is be fast and revert. There's really nothing else to be done besides remove the user's editing privelege, which of course requires a sysop. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 22:58, 16 April 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Georgia ≠ Virginia

Just so you know. — It's dot com 04:16, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

one of those southernish states... the point is people got killed, and that sucks. Even if I can't remember what state it was.BryanCTC 04:19, 1 May 2007 (UTC)
Nonetheless, there are a lot of those far-away places, you'd do well to sort them out first. In addition, even if this event took place at a location of tragedy, such a talk post would still be inappropriate. Talk pages are for discussing the article in question.

It was inappropriate. I apologize.BryanCTC 23:40, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

[edit] DNA subtitles

Hey man... you worked on the wrong subtitles script. The correct page is Subtitles:dna/en which is inprogress by The Mu... :-/ You should talk to him about how to sort that out. Loafing 01:07, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, man, I was just about to do that. Thanks. ¤ The Dang, Pom Pom, you see that? That's a nice golbol. Talk to me. 01:25, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Editing comments

Hey there, Bryanc. Please don't edit another user's comments (unless reverting vandalism). Thanks. Homestar Coderhomestar-coder-sig.gif 20:52, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

I understand that, which is why I struck out and replaced rather than just changing. I also noted that I had done so. That seemed better to me than just posting a correction, but I will take heed and be more strict in the future.BryanCTC 20:55, 18 May 2007 (UTC)
Yes, I think it's better to post a correction instead of directly changing comments. Homestar Coderhomestar-coder-sig.gif 20:57, 18 May 2007 (UTC)
