[edit] Welcome!

Hi, VerusHircus, 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) 11:00, 3 March 2006 (PST)

Thanks! I found this site from LtU, so thank you for posting about it there. -- Salimma 09:05, 4 March 2006 (PST)

Hi Salimma! I also welcome you. Thanks a lot for your contribution to Merge sort (Scheme) - your noweb syntax was just a little bit wrong, in that the tags "<<merge>>" and "<<split>>" are normally used to embed chunks of those names which have been defined elsewhere (kind of like macros). I separated the three functions into three code blocks and added some discussion of each. Not many other contributors know Scheme so far, so I hope you'll continue to contribute. Thanks again!

Thanks Deco. I replied on your talk page as well - which do you prefer? -- Salimma 09:05, 4 March 2006 (PST)
Good question. I'm frustrated by this ambiguity inherited from Wikipedia. I'm tempted to make a single policy about it, such as that replies should always be in the same place as the original post (this would help maintain continuity of conversation). On MediaWiki 1.5 you can get mail notifications when a talk page you're watching is updated, so it works pretty well. I could put this along with some other info at LiteratePrograms:Talk pages. What do you think? I actually wish that talk pages worked like a message board, but that'd be difficult to implement. Deco 14:06, 4 March 2006 (PST)
I like the idea of your single policy (but then, it's my default policy anyway) --Allan McInnes (talk) 14:44, 4 March 2006 (PST)

[edit] Renaming

Hi Verus, I moved your contributions to your new name. I tried to move the talk page history but I screwed up, so I moved it back. I'd rather not risk database instability for that, so this should do. Hope you like. Deco 03:08, 20 November 2006 (PST)

Thanks for taking the trouble! I wonder how the Wikipedia people do it, they probably have an automated script for this sort of things. VerusHircus 11:31, 20 November 2006 (PST)
