Community Meeting

There will be a community meeting a week from tomorrow. Although it's already going to be a fun filled meeting, please add comments on any other (preferably minor) topics you would like brought up. -- Prod (Talk) 21:49, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

Is this replacing November's meeting? — najzereT 21:57, 30 October 2009 (UTC)
Good catch, apparently I can't tell the date anymore. -- Prod (Talk) 23:52, 30 October 2009 (UTC)
I don't have my forum or IRC passwords at the moment, so I am unable to comment on the thread, nor will I be able to easily verify my identity when I show up on IRC. I am planning on being at this meeting. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 00:32, 31 October 2009 (UTC)

It's today, don't forget. — najzereT 18:19, 7 November 2009 (UTC)

Message templates

In our last meeting, we agreed that less pushy talk page messages were in order, specifically with regards to {{consolidate}}. Category talk:Message templates has been set up to work on these templates, so feel free to lend a hand fixing them up. Please indicate here whether any or all of them are ready to be changed out, so we know which ones we have a consensus on and which ones still need work. Thanks, — najzereT 19:06, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

alphabetTOC JavaScript

This is a proposed addition to MediaWiki:Common.js of a JavaScript function that de-links the letters in {{alphabetTOC}} if no corresponding section is on the page. Currently, pages using this template either have linked letters that don't do anything when you click them (E, J, N, Q, U, V, X), or dummy section headings (J, Q, V, X, Z) are included in the page to get you close to where you're going. This has come up before in various conversations I've had, so I don't think I'm the only one interested in this. Anyway, the code (alphabet_links() at the bottom) has been reviewed for errors by Skizzerz, so it just remains to decide if it's worthwhile for any random user to have this functionality. For non-technical types (can't think of any admin this applies to, but whatever), the function only executes on pages that contain the template and requires no additional changes to the template itself, so anyone with JS off would just see the normal everything-is-linked ToC. — najzereT 22:28, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

I think this is a useful, and needed, addition. Of course, I don't have much of use to add to the conversation ;p --~Vizeroth · (c)~-- 21:45, 15 November 2009 (UTC)
Same. I also think it would improve the template. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 04:52, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
Unavailable letters being inactive is the expected behaviour for alphabetical navigation so it makes sense to implement this. GarrettTalk 09:28, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
Well, I think my opinion on this is also obvious, and I think the general consensus is that you should go ahead and implement it. --Skizzerz 08:47, 17 November 2009 (UTC)
