This is an archive of community discussions from the main Caucus page that are no longer relevant. (If you want to comment on a topic, move it back to the Caucus first.)

Design[edit source]

The design is a work-in-progress. I have added the logo and background images from the main Electorama page. I will continue to update the look-and-feel of the site's default skin to match Electorama, but I'm not a CSS or design wizard. DanKeshet 14:36, 26 Jan 2005 (PST)

Announcements[edit source]

Once this has been announced on the election-methods mailing list and Electorama, I think we should give a chance for the Electorama community to shape it before opening it for wider discussion. We can open it for wider discussion by posting to the appropriate Wikimedia places (Sites that use Wikipedia content; sites that use MediaWiki, etc.), as well as the appropriate voting places.

Our "Village Pump"?[edit source]

We should probably have some sort of "Village Pump" type page here. Naming this is always traditionally different on a per Wiki basis, based on the flavor of the Wiki. My proposal would be for "Project:Smoke-filled room" or perhaps "Project:The caucus", but regardless, this page should probably be reserved for discussion of the Main Page. -- RobLa 16:02, 6 Feb 2005 (PST)

I've been bold and done it. DanKeshet 16:50, 9 Feb 2005 (PST)

Problems with software[edit source]

I've run into two problems:
  1. Math isn't working. This is pretty big. The math software requires ocaml v.3.0.6; our provider offers 3.0.4. We can either bug our provider or compile the new version ourselves. As it would be much easier to bug the provider, and take up considerably less space, I prefer that.
  2. Search isn't working. I'm going to look into this. Search wasn't working because of a tiny bug in the rewrite rules. Fixed and it now seems to work. DanKeshet 17:20, 9 Feb 2005 (PST)

Site stuff[edit source]

Hi everyone, I'm the sysadmin for this site. I recently have done some upgrading and spam fighting, which unfortunately didn't play out the way I was hoping. Mea culpa. Simple thinko in my configuration changes this weekend, combined with a lack of testing. Before that, it was a "routine" upgrade gone wrong. Next time, I'll post something here, so that you can at least see what's happening.

I'm still reworking the configuration to make things more sustainable, with most of the heavy work this weekend. More later. -- RobLa (talk) 20:26, 11 June 2013 (PDT)

More futzing today. I doing some things to make performance better, and I might reenable QuestyCaptcha (had it before the upgrade). -- RobLa (talk) 13:23, 16 June 2013 (PDT)
