User talk:Assyrius

From Uncyclomedia, the UnMeta-wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Hello Assyrius, welcome to Uncyclomedia. :) If you look around, you'll find that there is not much happening here, except for Carl doing the maintenance and the requests for new languages. We'll have to set up a forum i guess. I haven't got time now, untill later tonight, but maybe you could get to know Kohl, who is also working on this thing and who is happy with this too.

we'll have to make Ambassador Userboxes and such, and the category of users.

Then the letter to the wikis. Maybe we could make a concept here and adapt it for the different wikis. I was thinking of creating the UnN-namespace and put a link in the navigation boxes in the "community" box on the left, if that's ok with Carl.

Anyway, again: Welcome aboard and lets see if we can get this thing off the ground. The first thing we need is a olace to discuss stuff, so i would say the forum has priority. Maybe we could start using the Uncyclomedia-IRCchannel again too. talk to you later. D. G. Neree 13:03, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

Hello :) D. G. Neree 20:45, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
you're online then, great to see you:)by the way thanks for administration rights, you know i was the only admin on Yansiklopedi for one year and now i hand over half of my rights to my new partner. however i gained a lot of experiences as an admin at Yansiklopedi, im still not sure if i handle this one or not. its a tricky one:) --Assyrius 21:11, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

As you can see, a lot of old stuff is gone. The UnN-namespace is not necessary, the Embassies will be in the Main namespace. If you have any good ideas, feel free to work them out or mention them somewhere. I'm a bit tired. The last few days have been very exciting. I'm going to concentrate on archiving some of the old pages and changing pages to the new situation. If you have anything for the main page or any other page: the place is yours. D. G. Neree 21:01, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

our changes conflicted, anyway:) so there'll be a mainpage which redirects to embassies, its necessary for the beginning i think. then i'll work of it and some other stuff and display them on my own user page--Assyrius 21:18, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
Sorry for the editing conflict. I'm happy you like the idea. To tell you the truth: I don't have a very clear idea of where and how this will/must go. I have never done a thing like this before and i'm just inventing things as i go along :p There's nothing planned, really, and your guess is as good as mine. The most important thing at the moment i guess, is to make a letter and invite the wikis. But for that, we have to have an idea about what we want: We want embassies with links to the (people on the) wikis and UnMeta as a communications center i guess, and contactpersons (Ambassadors) from as many sites as possible.
I was thinking that eacht Embassie could have two (Main) pages, one in english and one in the home-language.. Or maybe one Main Page, with links to two language pages. (I see a page with a picture of a building with a barbed wire fence, a flag and a sign: Embassy of ***pedia, with two buttons on the gate, something like that...
Anyway, don't thank me for giving you admin rights, i must thank you for supporting this project. It would be impossible for me to do it alone. I'm just a simple nonsense-writer from Oncyclopedie :D. D. G. Neree 21:46, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
well, connecting all **pedias, its very complicated one. i've created infrastructure for Yansiklopedi from the beginning but there're still problems waiting to solve. I work as same as you :) nothing is planned before but in case of necessary, new sections are created. It will be more functional time by time i guess...

and about the embassies, we can send a letter to their forum pages in english. For embassy page i've shorten our "About" page and put "Embassy" page's template on it. We can determine a standart to all embassies perhaps or mainpages can be shown with embassy templates on them. We show our contactpersons in embassadors page, we have to show all of them at one page maybe. Let me think some possibilities. I'll try to arrange Yansiklopedi's embassy page as we talked.--Assyrius 22:08, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

Hi Assyrius! Just wanted to say that. Vsotvep - Blah blah 22:36, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

holidays and such[edit]

Vsotvep is on holidays for two weeks and Alzheimlich for 9 days (Alexandria, Egypt. He's going to wikimania :), i guess it's quiet in a lot of places. Now there is something i want to discuss with you. I personally have serious disagreements with Wikia and with one of their janitors in particular. He has an account here, and the only reason i haven't blocked him permanently is, that he hasn't actually done anything here to block him for and i don't want to sink to his level. But the question is: How do we deal with Wikia? For communications, it is important that there are links here to the staff, for obvious reasons. But will there be an ambassadorship for a wikia staffer? I think this would be a bad idea. The Intercyclopedia is for the pedia's. The big split was bad enough in itself and i don't want any Wikia staff (or janitors) to have a say on this site. I hope you agree with me on this. As a (non-ambassador) contact person on Wikia Sannse or Catherine would be be ok i guess. Furthermore: this janitor i'm talking about: if he says one wrong word on this site, i'm going to block him to infinity.

Oh, and i want to say about wikia, that they do everything they can to get the other pedias to join them. That's another reason that i don't want them to have a say here. Intercyclopedia is independent and only accountable to itself and the different pedian communities, not to any commercial organisation. Also, no advertisements for wikia here. Please, your opinion on this. D. G. Neree 12:14, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

I had this idea: When we finish the letter: will we send it to all pedias at once? Or shall we send it to the Non-wikia pedias first: see what happens and then after a while the wikia wikis? strictly for strategic purposes this is. D. G. Neree 12:20, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
yes, i understand the problem. it looks like Wikia won't agree with us, its obvious because we're non-wikias. But i dont think there'll be a serious conflict between Wiki staff and us, because in case of any problem we can block all of them at once and no one can say anything if the main reason is disagreements with administration. But you're right, it doesnt solve anything. we should think about other ways like diplomatic relations, i agree with you. And in that case there'll be no ambassadorhip for the non-wiki staff ofcourse:) First they must be accredited for pedian community and for accreditation, they have to send ambassadors. If we communicate them with contact persons, it means we dont approve their accreditation and if they insist, they have to change their side first. i dont know if it works or not, but i dont want wiki staff to have says to on Intercyclopedia too. and let wikia do their best:) Intercyclopedia assures better conditions for pedias. and i'll think about your idea. if sending this letter to wikias cause an accreditation problem, sending non-wikias first much more reasonable. we have to strenghten our hand first:) Assyrius 17:39, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
By the way, what do you think about half-naked sophia?:P Assyrius 17:46, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

It could be nice, but i would have to see the picture. Maybe we could exchange email adresses or talk on messenger, or else the Uncyclomedia IRC channel. I would like to revive that channel. The communication can be a bit quicker that way, and a bit more out of the public realm. If you would open an IRC- channnel for Yansiklopedi it could also be nice. If you're not acquainted with IRC, i could open a channel, tell you what to do (like downloading am IRC-client and so on. What browser do you use?) and give you the keys to it.

I'm glad you're good with pictures. My specialty is writing and words. I really like the weaponry for your embassy. Our weapon was made by Alzheimlich. Oh... and I'm not very good at wiki/html coding. For that, you better talk with Vsotvep or Alzheimlich, and of course, for the really technical stuff: Grand Magister Carl.

As more people will come here, we will also have to talk about the internal power structure of UnMeta, preferrably with the Chief too, whom i haven't contacted too much lately, because he had told me he was very busy. The matter is this: If the plan succeeds, and there wil be a lot of bustle on the site, which i hope: how are we going to apppoint new admins and who will they be? In other words: there actually is no policy on anything here yet. Maybe it is good to start some pages on policy? Sorry to bother you with this but almost evryone i know is on vacation and i am just thinking up loud, because i really like the project. D. G. Neree 01:06, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

So you couldn't see it, then it would be better if we exchange mails. here is mine: [email protected] And about IRC channel, Yansiklopedi needs one but i dont understand how it can be done. I'm glad if you assist me opening it, by the way i dont know which browser Yansiklopedi uses, here is out technical informations. if you asking me, i'm using internet explorer. Assyrius 21:26, 18 July 2008 (UTC)
I apologise. I didn't see the image. Yes, it's a nice idea, the half naked sophia. Maybe the "U" on it can be changed into an "I"? I've been rather busy the last two days, so i havent checked on everything yet. I will now. D. G. Neree 10:29, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

IRC[edit]

For IRC you do the following. If you use IE, you have to download and install an IRC-client (like Xchat or mIRC) and install it. I believe mIRC is free, but there is a free version of Xchat too i think (For Firefox there is chatzilla, an add on, which I use). Anyway, when you've installed Xchat or mIRC, you have to set your preferences (nickname and such) and connect to Freenode. When you're on freenode, you have to choose a channel. I am on #ncyclopedie and #Uncyclomedia. but there is a list of channels here on Meta, Chat i think. I'll look up the instruction page on Uncyc or maybe wikipedia and i'll getr back tot you. It takes some figuring out in the beginning, but it's an easy way tot communicate. D. G. Neree 10:38, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

See here D. G. Neree 10:49, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

Front page[edit]

I tried to change the front page, to take away the game zone, the word of the day and that poem. They are not related to UnMeta or Intercyclopedia. But i made a mess of it and restored it. Could you take those items away? they are very confusing. Btw, your template is very nice there.

I worked on the invitation. Maybe you could look and see if it needs change still. When do you think shall we send it? I would like it to be as soon as possible, at least to the non-wikia wikis. Tomorrow or so? we could make a list and each do half of them. Or are there things you want to prepare here first? Oh, yes, the forum. Marco put that up in the UnN namespace, but the UnN namespace is not necessary. I think its better in the main namespace or the UnMeta namespace. it's late. i'm off to bed. D. G. Neree 23:48, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

Oh... I saw that you made me a burocrat on Yansiklopedi :p How will I ever be able to judge if i have to promote or demote someone? on the other hand: I could fire you all and take over... Nah.. too much work. anyway, it looks good on my Curriculum Vitae. Thanks. D. G. Neree 23:59, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

you're welcome, but burocrat right only itself has no use on Yansiklopedi:) so symbolically i choose ambassadors as burocrats and no one complained about it:) anyway, i clean up the main page and changed not related contents to related ones. Here some of changes:
  • Game zone, the word of the day, poem ...etc. removed
  • Main Menu template is created (actually stolen from spanish Inciclopedia) and arranged for our purpose. Still need to work on it, its sample for so feel free to change or add new contents. (im not sure abot colors)
  • Maintenance templates are created. i put construction template in some sections (so we can find easily where we should change later)
  • Embassies template is changed and placed into main menu bar
  • new templates for main menu created (inorder to facilitate changes and arrangements)
  • General view of Main Page is changed (now seems more functional to me)

and about namespaces i want to ask you if we can create InN namespace for InterNews? It would be great if we change uncyclomedia News into InterNews!Assyrius 08:13, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

Great work on the main page. Sure, good idea to create the namespace. please do it. I don't really know the procedure for that. D. G. Neree 19:54, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

invitations[edit]

hello Assyrius, I started sending invitations to wikis, starting with Carl's. On this page i've started at the top. As you see, i put "check" behind the pedia's i've invited. If you want to work on it too, you could start at the bottom, or somewhere in the middle, so we don't double things. I wanted to wait for you, but i was talking to some people and they were so enthousiastic, that i thought it a good time to start. Let's see what comes of it. The 3 sites i did already are rather small and not very active. Hopefully our initiative will help to change that. What i did it:

  1. Made an account
  2. changed preference language to english (so i can read what's on the site)
  3. Put something on my userpage (functions on Oncyclopedia and here)
  4. Put the invitation on the forum (community portal). Until now they're not used much.
  5. get the hell out of there :p

D. G. Neree 19:51, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

Bureaucrat[edit]

Hi Assyrius, You're a Bureaucrat now. DG and I thought that it's a good way to thank you for helping with Intercyclopedia. Vsotvep - Blah blah 19:31, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for the invitation before several months[edit]

Good evening. Under the declaration, I was gone to a Descent into the unrest at there. I forgot all about that. But I sometimes did some translations between English and Japanese. (However there is a huffed article now.)

Sorry. I would express my pleasure to your invitation. Thank you.--Ore tatieno 15:12, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Bureaucrat status[edit]

Hi there. I took away your bureaucrat status, because you have not been active here for a long time. If you want your bureaucrat status back, just ask. I hope you understand. Greetings | CartoonistHenning (talk) 00:13, 19 August 2011 (UTC)
