LiquidThreads are not working for me

I am unable to use LiquidThreads on this wiki. I don't get an Edit window, only a few lines with Greek and other scrips. So I went to the feedback page. That page is using LiquidThreads too. But suprisingly I got an edit windwo there. I use IE7 browser and the standard preferences on this wiki (I think). I switched language back from nl to en, but that did not help. I logged off. Same result. Any suggestions? HenkvD 18:19, 14 October 2009 (UTC)Reply

That's odd... I passed it on to Werdna. Hopefully he'll be in touch with you. -- Philippe 21:03, 14 October 2009 (UTC)Reply
I found the reason: MediaWiki:Edittools is to big.... When I clear it I can use LQT. HenkvD 18:44, 16 October 2009 (UTC)Reply
Are the LT talks archived somewhere?--Kozuch 12:20, 28 October 2009 (UTC)Reply
Yes; when LiquidThreads is re-enabled, they'll come back. -- Philippe 13:43, 28 October 2009 (UTC)Reply

I want an alternative village pump

I want another village pump, on a normal talk page, where people can talk together free from the monster software. The Liquidthreat enthusiasts can have their Liquidthreat village pump if they want, but they should not impose their software by force.

This Liquidthreat is depriving people with a simple bucket to take water at the pump.

What a nice village this is! Teofilo 04:31, 19 December 2009 (UTC)Reply

Invrease vote limit to cancel items

A strong and dangerous limit in expanding Wipepedia may be found in the organized action of some national little groups. I know the situation in some European Wiki, outside the English language groups. They create little groups (five or ten members) in order to limit new entries throgh the use of a formal vote which use to cancel some items or impose their rules. I propose (i) to fix in almost 100 or 150 votes any decision to cancel an item. I propose also (ii) to open a procedure for the revision of the items cancelled in the past.

  • Would you please be more specific. What does it mean "canceling items"? Reverting policies? --Yaroslav Blanter 12:56, 2 February 2010 (UTC)Reply
    • I think they're referring to new articles and she's saying that when they're created there's a clique that's deleting them successfully. It's impossible to know if this is a genuine problem or whether this user has a beef because her own personal interests are not being recognised on the wiki(s). So it would be helpful if Louise could provide some idea of articles that have been deleted. --Bodnotbod 16:55, 2 February 2010 (UTC)Reply
      I am looking after five smaller wikis (former USSR languages), and I do not see such problems over there. In contrary, people are typically happy to accept any reasonable contribution in the appropriate language. In any case, getting 100 votes in the deletion review is absolutely unrealistic even for Russian Wikipedia (currently #10 in terms of # of articles and I believe # 5 in the number of active users). We rarely get more than a couple of dozens votes.--Yaroslav Blanter 21:00, 2 February 2010 (UTC)Reply
