Lex, just dropping you a note to say you're doing a great job so far -- also to make it clear to posterity that the wording of my user page predates the wording of yours... ;) --[[User:Bry|Bry]] 21:53, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
All entries pre 14/05/08 [[User talk:Agent Lex/Archive|archived]]!
Lex - replaced the image with a CC licenced one from Flickr and added the author/licence info.. --[[User:Masonreloaded|Masonreloaded]]
Awesome job fixing the [[Shows calendar]] [I may retract that if it breaks ;) ]. Good going! --[[User:Bry|Bry]] 13:58, 6 April 2008 (EDT)
Lex, I would be be glad to be a moderator --[[User:Masonreloaded|Masonreloaded]]
Mod me, baby. --[[User:MitchO|MitchO]] 15:38, 7 April 2008 (EDT)
-Read and commented on both [[JoCopedia talk:Editing guidelines/Shows|Shows]] and [[JoCopedia talk:Editing guidelines/Songs|Songs]] Guidelines. --[[User:MitchO|MitchO]] 15:56, 7 April 2008 (EDT)
As you'd probably guessed, I'm power-hungry enough to want in on this moderation thing. (And I've read the editing guidelines.) --[[User:Bry|Bry]] 18:07, 7 April 2008 (EDT)
Hey Lex, can we get a left hand side link for the calendar?  I was adding May's shows to it, and I have to go to the main page and hunt down the link in the text each time. --[[User:MitchO|MitchO]] 15:54, 15 April 2008 (EDT)
Three things:
# The server settings are such that I can't upload any files (the folder's not writeable). Don't know if you have control over that (probably not), but could you take care of that? (It's so much fun to be able to shuttle technical issues to someone else for a change!)
# I do love the WikiProject idea, and I am suggesting that [[WikiProject:Shows]] be the next one to be created -- MitchO's already doing most of the tasks, but it might be nice to have an "official" list of what needs to be done. See forum thread for my thoughts...
# Congrats, seriously, on getting this made official -- you've done a great job so far, and you definitely deserve all the credit for it. I really appreciate all the work you've put into this!
--[[User:Bry|Bry]] 03:17, 18 April 2008 (EDT)
:Hey, thanks for getting the uploading problem straightened out! By the way, uploading files doesn't seem to pull up a captcha for me any more -- not that I mind not having to decipher and type characters, but I don't know if that's the expected behavior. --[[User:Bry|Bry]] 03:58, 19 April 2008 (EDT)
:: Oh, okay -- my mistake. I'm okay with captchas not being required for file uploads. Even when I'm logged in [as moderator, let me add ;) ] I get captchas when I've added an external link, though. That what you had in mind? --[[User:Bry|Bry]] 11:16, 19 April 2008 (EDT)
::: I gotta say .. Captcha is driving me NUTS. --[[User:MitchO|MitchO]] 22:22, 20 April 2008 (EDT)
Lex, something broke the WikiProject:Lyrics page.  It's the cell formatting so I'd rather not even try to futz with your work.  --[[User:MitchO|MitchO]] 19:05, 22 April 2008 (EDT)
Hey, Lex -- lots of interesting things happening. Do I have deletion rights? (If not, can I get them?) Hope you're not too swamped -- let me know if there's anything I can do. --[[User:Bry|Bry]] 14:55, 23 April 2008 (EDT)
I did a few [[User:Adys/Dev|changes]] to [[Template:SongNav]] to hopefully make it prettier - Could you tell me what you think of them? If it's good, I'll probably work a bit on a few other templates. [[User:Adys|Adys]] 15:16, 23 April 2008 (EDT)
Hey, Lex, thanks for the deletion rights, and I'm happy to serve on the welcoming committee. You've probably got enough on your plate, but I'd be glad for your input on the "[[Fan Projects]]" page and [[Talk:Fan Projects|discussion]]. --[[User:Bry|Bry]] 00:44, 24 April 2008 (EDT)
[[User:Adys/Dev|What do you think?]] - Snav will make it easier to create new templates of the kind (take a look at the code). [[User:Adys|Adys]] 10:46, 24 April 2008 (EDT)
Hey, Lex, sorry to take so long to get back to you. Thanks for protection rights; I'll take a look at the help:editing, but no promises -- might be quicker to pull Wikipedia's for the time being. (At some point, we need to all sit down and figure out what the various help pages should look like / include, and how they should be organized. The [[Editing guidelines]] make little to no sense, and it's irritating to me but I haven't gotten around to fixing it yet.) On an unrelated note, how would you feel about having a "Talk:Mods" or something? Mitch, you, and I could all have it on our watchlists, and people could drop a note there with questions or things they want done but don't have rights for -- then whoever saw it first could edit the page to say he's dealing with it. --[[User:Bry|Bry]] 22:20, 27 April 2008 (EDT)
:The page I suggested is created, at [[JoCopedia:Moderators]]. Will you add it to your watch list? --[[User:Bry|Bry]] 23:36, 29 April 2008 (EDT)
Hi, Lex. I'd like to replace the contents of [[Template:SongDetails]] with the contents of [[User:Wesley/SongDetails]], but I feel that I should run it by you before I do so. The sample is still up at [[Template talk:SongDetails]]. Thanks! &mdash; <span style="font-variant:small-caps">[[User:Wesley|Wesley]]</span> | 07:16, 30 April 2008 (EDT)
Hey Lex, I was wondering if I could get my test bot, [[User:WesBot|WesBot]], to be classified as a bot in this wiki. Right now, all it does is remove the SongNav bar from every page in [[:Category:Songs]]. Still, if I let it do that for each song page, that would clog up the recent changes page pretty quick. Thanks in advance, and I hope to get a quick writeup of how-to-make-a-bot up later this week. &mdash; <span style="font-variant:small-caps">[[User:Wesley|Wesley]]</span> | 07:49, 5 May 2008 (EDT)
: Thanks, Lex! It worked great! SongNavs are now gone from all the song pages. &mdash; <span style="font-variant:small-caps">[[User:Wesley|Wesley]]</span> | 09:48, 5 May 2008 (EDT)
: Hey, ditto that request for my bot, [[User:SockyBot|SockyBot]], which I haven't actually started trying to get to work. (And may SockyBot have admin rights? I'm interested in trying to use it to import the public-domain help files, following the directions at [http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Copying].) --[[User:Bry|Bry]] 21:25, 6 May 2008 (EDT)
Hello, Lex, it's me and [[User:WesBot|WesBot]] again. I'd like to get deletion rights for WesBot for a bit so that I can delete all of the [[Template:DATE April 1]] redirects. As far as I can tell, all the pages that link to the old template have changed over. (Checked using [[Special:Whatlinkshere/Template:DATE {{LOCALMONTHNAME}} {{LOCALDAY}}]].) Is that alright? &mdash; <span style="font-variant:small-caps">[[User:Wesley|Wesley]]</span> | 20:15, 7 May 2008 (EDT)
: Thanks Lex, you rock :) I hope your employer doesn't mind your attention being diverted, but I sure appreciate it :P
== videos moved ==
OK, I get it now.  I didn't understand what he was talking about before, and to be honest that box at the top of the songs pages with the links to "lyrics" and "videos" and whatnot didn't even register for me.  I looked at the main body of the page, with the "Trivia" and the enigmatic "Themes", didn't see anything about videos, so figured it needed to be added there.
== how to edit images on song pages ==
What's the secret to editing the image on a song page?  There are some that have placeholders, and I can update them to show Len's VTAW pic if I knew how.
: I've given an answer over at [[User talk:Spiff]], but feel free to correct any mistakes or misconceptions. (Which is to say, in all, Spiff left a note on my talk page and Mitch responded, then Spiff left a note on my talk page and Lex responded, and now Spiff leaves a note on Lex's talk page and I respond. Hurray for mod teamwork!) --[[User:Bry|Bry]] 18:03, 24 April 2008 (EDT)
== themes ==
That's *EXACTLY* what I'm looking for, Lex.  I understand that "Cover songs" may not be the best theme, but it was an easy way to get the ball rolling and test it out.  My feeling is that once we have some themes listed, it may help people use already existing categories rather than a sprawling mess, and it may succeed at the intended goal.  Woot!  --[[User:MitchO|MitchO]] 11:52, 27 April 2008 (EDT)
:I take it back, it's not perfect yet.  It links to the Category page, but doesn't add the song to the category.  Check out [[Re Your Brains]]. --[[User:MitchO|MitchO]] 11:55, 27 April 2008 (EDT)
::And in another edition of "responding to yourself theatre", I see what it is: You actually added "Sing A Longs" to the bottom of Sweet Caroline.  Here's what I was hoping/envisioned: Not having the themes repeated on the bottom, but instead get added to the category/group because of the listing in "Themes".  This way, we can have "Christmas" listed in themes, but NOT have to duplicate the listing in categories, and still have the user be able to click and see the sub-category "Christmas" and find the three songs. --[[User:MitchO|MitchO]] 12:00, 27 April 2008 (EDT)
:::I think I got the way to do it, Lex.  I checked out our godfather, the TMBG wiki, and it appears all their themes just link to a new page which is categorized under "Themes".  It means that each theme is going to be a "regular page", but they should all list properly under <nowiki>[[Category:Themes]]</nowiki>, which is my ultimate goal.  I created a WikiProject for the idea as well, see if you agree with my reasoning/statement.  --[[User:MitchO|MitchO]] 12:25, 27 April 2008 (EDT)
==Interwiki Register Link==
The interwikifying or whatever of the "register" link on the Main Page doesn't work.  The forum link does. --[[User:MitchO|MitchO]] 17:06, 6 May 2008 (EDT)
== They do now :P ==

: (PS: To be serious: Thank you, truly, for all you do around here. This project basically owes its entire existence to your stepping up and volunteering to start and host the wiki. And I know we must keep you pretty busy with all the requests and everything all the time. You're doing a really great job of handling all of it, and I really do appreciate it a whole lot.)
Lex, I'm putting my work out there on my [[User:MitchO/Main_Page|Main Page]].  I think it's pretty much ready for the front.  I'd love your [[User_talk:MitchO/Main_Page#Ready_for_Prime_Time.3F|2 cents]].  Thanks. --[[User:MitchO|MitchO]] 16:00, 9 May 2008 (EDT)
== [[Community Portal]] ==
Or as I like to call it, the Escalator to Nowhere! Thanks for re-adding it, now what are we gonna do with it? ^_^ Or more accurately, where are we gonna discuss what to do with it? Should I slap an RFC on the page itself for discussion to begin? <span class="nounderlinelink" style="color:#FF3399"><strong>~ [[User:Percephene|<span style="color:#FF3399">Percephene</span>]] ~  </strong><small> '''[[User_talk:Percephene|<span style="color:#FFC0CB">talk</span>]] [[Special:Contributions/Percephene|<span style="color:#FF3399">contribs</span>]]</small></span> <span style="color:#FF3399"><small>03:41, 10 May 2008</small></span>
== A quick note ==
{{User:Wesley/Thank you
| Being an administrator entails boring administrator work, so I lighten the load by making you look over my template ideas, grant rights to bots... Har har :P Anyway, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for keeping the gears spinning, both under the hood and in the pages of the wiki. Keep up the great work!}}
== Main Page Edit ==
Thanks for the vote of confidence, Lex ... however, only Sysops can update Main right now.  I did one more upgrade on my page based on Wesley's code cleanup suggestions, so if you can either let Mods edit the Main (preferable, so Bry can also fix FlashMob) or copy my page over, that'd be great.  Thanks! --[[User:MitchO|MitchO]] 10:51, 10 May 2008 (EDT)
