I'm running a site with a (fairly) responsive skin at http://säsongsmat.nu (large thumbnails and image page images will resize, etc). It's far from perfect, and some parts are more RD than others. One think that I haven't looked into at all, is all the special pages that are build with tables (Special:UserLogin and many more). Making custom versions of them all would be a lot of job, so I'm asking here first: Has anyone done something like that already? I know there are a few responsive skins out there, did any of them address the special pages?
Best regardsLeo Wallentin

I did not add Aruba.it, nor do I know anything about them. If the history says I added them, then perhaps there's a security issue of some sort to address.

Thanks. I didn't see any way on that page for someone to register if they didn't have a site to list.

Is there an easy way to get 2 spaces between words? All spaces except 1 are removed and I can't think of a way to get two spaces.
Why? In The Netherlands two spaces should appear in the address between postal code and place in print-outs.
Thanks in advance,
I've added a couple sites to your table that may be interesting. Feel free to delete them if not.
I do MediaWiki consulting, but I don't push it too hard and don't have a page touting that. It's mostly to web clients who want to do something that I know MediaWiki is strong at.

My name is Mariya ( User:Mitevam) and I am an intern with WMF for about a
week now. My current project is to compile a list of 3-rd party MediaWiki
users and reach out to them to find out what we can do for them, what they
would like to see in MediaWiki in the future, etc. and also how they could
contribute back. The list I have so far is on my User
I am mostly interested in businesses offering MediaWiki consulting,
hosting, development, training, etc services since they seem more likely to
get involved in the discussion but single MediaWiki wikis are also welcome
if they are active and willing to participate.
I am reaching out to the list for help with the following:
1) If you know of any users that should be included in the list, I would
appreciate any additions. I am sure I did not find all of them.
2) One way to look for 3-rd party users was a web search for keywords such
as "MediaWiki consultancy", "MediaWiki training", "MediaWiki skin
design", "MediaWiki hosting", "MediaWiki installation", "MediaWiki
support". I have so far done web searches in English, Bulgarian, Spanish
and Russian. I am not 100% confident with my Spanish and Russian searches
and I can not really search in any other language efficiently. If you are a
native or fluent speaker of another language I would be grateful if you
could do a quick search and let me know if you find any major businesses I
might have missed. Some don't have an English version of their website.
Some major languages would be German, French, Japanese, but any is welcome.
3) If you have any questions/topics, which arise in your own work, which
you would like me to bring up to 3-rd party users, please let me know.
Thank you in advance.
Just a guess, but this switch statement is in a template that is 2-levels deep. IOW, a page calls template 1 which calls template 2. Would this cause a problem? I've tried numerous examples and it works when it's the 1st template called, but not the second.
There are a few extensions that enable the use of variables in pages/templates. Can anyone recommend a good/stable/safe one?
BTW, here's why I need it. I need a unique name/id assigned to each instance of a "multiple" form template so that other dependent subobjects can be associated with each.
I've been recommended to use the following setup in Linode:
>> NGINX, PHP-FPM with APC and MySQL.
When I sign up for Linode, it will probably give me options for the type of
setup. Which one should I choose?
Arch Linux 2012.10
Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
Also is there anything else I should take care of during the sign-up
