Links[edit source]

Re: Links not working as you were expecting; I wasn't sure whether we were wedded to the "Electowiki" name. "Project" is a hard-coded default that will always go the "project" page/namespace. Therefore if we added a page at Electowiki:FAQ, then changed the namespace to "Electoarama:", Project:FAQ would automatically change to Electorama:FAQ. That's why I added the links like that. -- (unsigned 12:07, 24 January 2005 24.18.253.49)

Blanked spam pages[edit source]

Nothing shows up in Recent Changes, but I see that there are two slightly active sysops, you and Homunq. As you might know, I have WMF sysop experience, and I have the bit on some other wikis. I could do some cleanup, like those blanked spam pages, besides if I'm here for that, I might also contribute to some voting systems articles, I have a bit of knowledge and experience there.

I could also create a delete template, for some other admin to use, but ... I thought I'd ask for the sysop bit.

Captcha should be implemented, I'd say, the regular captcha, if possible. I'm sure you know a hundred times as much as I on this. I think that people with regular election methods interest could be encouraged to use this wiki.... --Abd 20:14, 15 October 2012 (PDT)

User account migration[edit source]

Would it be a good idea for you to message everyone on the old wiki through the email system and encourage them to create accounts on this one under the same username? So they take over their existing user pages, as in https://phabricator.miraheze.org/T3624#73414Psephomancy (talk) 03:42, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
