Okay, I just wanted to say "Thank you!" to
everybody who made this
possible: Lee, Brion, Magnus, and everybody else involved. The new
software has a really nice "feel", and the features are just great. I
knew the software from the English Wikipedia, but it's another thing to
see it on "our own" wiki.
As the first non-English to get a production conversion, you're the
guinea pigs. Keep finding those problems for us. ;)
I'd like to delete a few pages (empty ones, of
course <g>), and make
some database queries (yes, I'll be careful), so could someone please
make me admin, sysop or whatever I need to be able to do this?
Poof, you're a sysop.
It would be nice to have the old German usemod
Wikipedia on a subdomain,
just in case something got lost on the way to the new database (like the
talk pages from our HomePage). If we do this, could we prevent google
and others from indexing it?
I second this; the old stuff needs to be accessible, at least until
everyone's confident that large swathes of data aren't missing (anymore).
Which reminds me: how can I get at the old Usemod database for the
English wikipedia? I'd like to get the old revisions merged in at some
point, but I can't do it without the data!
Google has indexed test-de.wikipedia.com
maybe we should redirect from there to www.wikipedia.de
, if we don't
already do this.
should already bring up the correct wiki;
needs to be changed in the DNS. Jimbo, Jason?
