I'm joining![edit source]

Hello my name is CnocBride aka Diarmuid if you want to call me by that. Anyway I found your wiki and I absolutely love the idea of a free and open wiki! I don't like the way Wikipedia operates sometimes with their policies of "NPV". This should be a wiki of information and knowledge for people to express their opinions on various topics. — Preceding unsigned comment added by CnocBride (talkcontribs)

Hello[edit source]

Hello Stranger195! I really like the idea of what you are doing here. It seems like a new wiki of wikis, which is great! I would just like to say if Im to join the wiki I really need access to stuff like Special:Import and stuff like that. Could I also have approval to request gadgets and extensions for the wiki such as VisualEditor and gadgets like HotCat and Twinkle.

I really do want to help out. Please reply to this message :D

Bot[edit source]

Hey Stranger, I see you spend a lot of time manually importing pages from Wikipedia. I think if we could we should set up a bot or something to import the pages and add an attribution template to it. Its just a thought but I have little to no technical knowledge. Wiki.png CnocBride | Talk | Contribs

I don't know how either. --stranger195 (talkcontribsguestbook) 07:26, 17 July 2017 (UTC)

Discord established![edit source]

I have now established a Discord for the entire wiki to use. It can be accessed using this link: Discord Link Wiki.png CnocBride | Talk | Contribs 22:18, 28 October 2017 (UTC)

Vote requested[edit source]

As part of the election of the new Code of Conduct Commission the community will elect two members. As the founder of a large wiki and an associate of mine I ask you to make your voice heard over at the voting page. Wiki.png CnocBride | Talk | Contribs 12:41, 11 November 2017 (UTC)

Messed up templates[edit source]

As you may have know, we import a lot of stuff from other sites for use on our own wiki. While this is totally fine under copyright law, it does look bad when we import templates and try not to modify them. Lots of templates have pages redirecting back to Wikipedia about their policies. This is bad as our wiki is more lenient and open then Wikipedia is so I believe when importing articles we should use the find and replace tool (available in the visual and new wikitext editor) to replace all instances of "Wikipedia" with "TME".

@CnocBride: Alright, I'll start with those notices at the top of articles. stranger195 (talkcontribsguestbook) 12:21, 30 December 2017 (UTC)

Accidental template creation[edit source]

I accidentally created the Infobox dependency template while trying to add it onto another site. I mistook this site for HypotheticalWiki. Please don't block me for it. It was an accident. - InfinityDestroyer

WikiBase[edit source]

I would like you to enable the WikiBase (Client) and WikiBase (Repository) extensions to the wiki. It appears that a lot of the infoboxes require that extension. Snowie (talk) 00:09, 6 August 2020 (UTC)

@Snowie: I've done it. --stranger195 (talkcontribsguestbook) 04:07, 6 August 2020 (UTC)
