[edit] Welcome!

Hi, Derek Ross, and welcome to LiteratePrograms! I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a couple of tips for newcomers:

  • If you haven't done so already, please take a look at how to write an article on LiteratePrograms. The markup is basically the same as that used on Wikipedia, but there are a few differences of which you should be aware.
  • Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date.

I hope you enjoy editing here! If you need help, post a question on the Public forum, or just ask me on my talk page. --Allan McInnes (talk) 10:57, 3 March 2006 (PST)

Thanks, Allan. -- Derek Ross 23:20, 5 March 2006 (PST)

[edit] You're a power user

Hi Derek. I'm the site owner, User:Deco, and I made you a power user (see LP:Power Users) so that you can delete and protect pages and do other useful things like that. You've made some good contributions lately and I appreciate it. Please continue! Deco 16:44, 10 August 2006 (PDT)

Cheers, Deco. I've been meaning to contribute for ages and only just got around to it. -- Derek Ross | Talk 16:47, 10 August 2006 (PDT)

[edit] AutoAdv

Thank you for reading the Story telling article, I will make my best to answer to your questions. I will try to spare time to paste some code here too, regards - Lehalle

That's great. Sorry if I came across as critical. I'm not. I'm just confused and would like to know more. I couldn't find anything when I searched the 'net and that's unusual for computer science topics. -- Derek Ross | Talk 21:49, 27 October 2006 (PDT)

[edit] Translation of POT/PO-files using wiki

Hi Derek! Thank you for taking an interest in translators. I've added a short example. Care to comment? Haakon


[edit] death to spambots

I notice you've been having problems with spambots. SNPedia used to have the same problem, but the recaptcha mediawiki extension fixed the problem quickly. cariaso. http://recaptcha.net/plugins/mediawiki/

Thanks for the suggestion. It sounds like a good idea. I'll pass it on to the site owner. -- Derek Ross | Talk 18:48, 11 March 2008 (PDT)


I see a lot of spam too, I also run a mediawiki wiki and have used recaptcha from the start and I have had absolutely no spam at all. Jeffz 21:53, 22 July 2008 (EDT)

Must admit that I wish Deco would have a look at something like that. It would be more effective than Ahy1 and I (and a couple of anons) playing "whack-a-mole". Still we seem to be coping so far. I really like the concept behind this site and I don't want to see it overrun by junk. -- Derek Ross | Talk 23:28, 22 July 2008 (EDT)
Unfortunately now even the reCAPTCHA extension has been defeated by spammers. But I've installed the Asirra extension, a CAPTCHA which has not yet been broken, and taken a lot of new antispam measures (see User:Dcoetzee/2012 improvements to LiteratePrograms). Dcoetzee 15:20, 7 April 2012 (UTC)
