Your questions

I am sorry not being able to help you; while I have been granted admin status, that doesn't mean that I would be a MediaWiki wizard, or have received a tutorial in wiki management and FrathWiki administrative policies. It is one matter to be allowed to do something; it is another to know how to do them. --WeepingElf (talk) 08:05, 18 September 2017 (PDT)

Again, I am sorry that I can't help you. I don't know which admins are there, and who of them are still active. --WeepingElf (talk) 07:47, 23 September 2017 (PDT)

Re: Another Question

> And, finally, I have been messing around a lot with a template that creates a table for use within another table. Unfortunately, it has a bad habit of being obnoxious and won't let me center the resulting tables inside the cells of the other table I am using it in. Is there a better way to do this (mayhap using div-boxes or spans, or some other trickery I just don't know)? If not, can you make any suggestions for the syntax of the page/templates in question. They are: Vingdagese#Characters, Template:VDT+ and the other version of the template which basically just makes placing Files easier Template:VDT.

I went into Template:VDT+ and changed 'float: left' to 'display: inline-block'. This appears to have had the effect of centering them in the table in Vingdagese. If it doesn't work for you or if you meant a different kind of effect, let me know and we can look into it further.

> Do you know if folks actively purge stuff out of the For deletion category? If not, is there a better way to ask Admins to delete things for me?

>> Relatedly, as I tend to mess with naming conventions and what not, I was wondering if it would be possible for someone to give me the ability to rename pages and suppress the automatic creation of a re-direct page. I know this isn't generally done for ordinary users, but I can assure you that I have no interest in purposefully breaking links willy-nilly and actually would just like to be able to move my stuff around when I need to without creating a swath of dead pages in my wake that may never get dumped themselves. I am well aware of checking the "What links here?" link to make sure that when I move things it makes as few dead links as possible. Just a thought that might make less work for you guys in the long run and minimize the number of dead pages I end up making.

Regarding deletions, I've given you admin rights so you can take care of what you need done. I don't think we really have bureaucracy here so it's pretty much purely a janitorial thing.

Let me know if you have questions. —Muke Tever | 04:20, 25 September 2017 (PDT)

Rotated table headings

While I'm sure there is a way to do this properly, I don't know how offhand - Google would be your best bet. From the results of a quick search, it may not be an easy one-line solution. —Muke Tever | 04:12, 27 September 2017 (PDT)


Thanks for the Table of Contents that you've put on my user talk page. I'll probably adapt it a bit, so that the characters are lower case (which is more consistent with my Romanisation), but I think it looks good.
