[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.

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)
