Having just gotten my name added to the above MediaWiki file, I observed that the desired effect--rendering Admins' names in boldface in Special:RecentChanges--is not working. Puppy verifies this but adds that he doesn't like boldfacing anyway, as there is another useful use of bold in this report. I seem to recall that my initial reaction to this was the same.

I think I know the cause of this, and have a recoding that is working at home, and extends to the Watchlist and even listings of differences between versions of pages. If youse want to call out the names of Admins, what I would do is (with side-padding and a non-repeating background image) add a tiny image file to one side; probably a star-shaped Sheriff's badge. (Not, please, a swastika, nor an animated Mordillo Jew-ninja.)

I am not sure this issue is ready for a vote, but there are four possible directions:

  1. Sure; the image sounds cool. (Such as RomartusSheriff badge icon.)
  2. Just get the frickin' boldfacing to work right.
  3. I think Admins suck and I don't want to see any special treatment of their names in lists.
    (Or perhaps: I am a cheap bastard with metered Internet and resent having to reload a list including every fallen-away Admin every time I clear my cache.)
  4. "I don't care" seems like a very valid response as well.

Also, I welcome comments on whether the same policy should extend beyond RecentChanges to pages that normal people actually view. Spıke Ѧ 13:34 14-Feb-13

  • I'm happier without admins name in bold, as Spike points out. Although I'd happily create a .js or .css that anyone could access if they wanted it. Having said that, Spike already has. And the site .css is a bloated mess as it is. But if anyone can point out the original vote to implement this I'd happily go with that rather than re-vote and just get the stupid thing working. In other words, 4, with a hint of 3, followed by 2, but 1 also sounds cool.                               Puppy's talk page01:53 14 Feb

Spike can't see this, so I will describe it as a pic of a very handsome sherrif, with a nice horse and a saloon woman on each arm.

You mean a vote on if when admins make an edit that it would show up in recent changes with a sherriff's badge next to it? hahahahahahah chokechoke hahahahahah hehehehehehehehehhahaheheh, huh? Aleister 21:17 (can't Spike just add the badge at the end of his signature, which would solve the problem of not having a star?)
For what I see at home, see the illustration on Puppy's page. I take your response as a No to the star. Do you have an opinion on the other issues? Spıke Ѧ 21:24 14-Feb-13
hahahahahahahaha oh, if I chose one, it would be four "I don't care", or, if pushed, I'd make sure admins had trumpet music playing throughout the site every time they made an edit. Not a long song, but just a few notes of a trumpet, like when the prince of Wales enters the ballroom and each and all stop what they're doing and look at him. Puppy can probably set that up as a sound-file, and connect it through the internet tubes into the sound systems on these computer machines, and maybe that would be my choice but since it's not an option, number seven above would work. Aleister a little bit of background, as you earlier asked me in this interview, in the middle '90s I decided I could solve some of these problems, and was led to a West African dirigible.
p.s. I just looked at the illustration on Puppy's page. hahahahahahahahahaha Anyway, I'm a blogger here, so I have no opinions except it would be a god holy mess looking at recent changes if those huge blocks were splattered all over the place. I've had Mordillo tied-up in my basement for a couple of years now, and he still is spinning like a star. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Unknown (talk • contribs)
Wow. An real picture of Mordillo. That proves you have him. If you return him to us we will pay you £1.37. - The preceding unsigned comment was added by CouldHaveBeenAnyone (talk • contribs) 01:31, February 15, 2013 (UTC)
  • While again giving a nod to the validity of option 4 ("I don't care"), my preference is option 3 (no mandatory highlighting in any report). At home, I now have sheriff's stars for every Admin, old Nipper beside Puppy's name just for helping out, something too for Aleister's name just for doing whatever it is that he does, and garish highway signs to call out my own edits. I don't care that anyone else have any of the above, and no one (metered Internet or not) should have to repeatedly download a list of us because someone (we) wants us to be shown in boldface. For anyone who wants this, the code should be moved to a separate file here and UN:HAX should tell users how to invoke it. Spıke Ѧ 12:30 15-Feb-13
