thought I'd kick off the main page talk page by wondering why it's protected? - I've no particular idea in mind for changes (yet!) - but thought I'd ask this first :-) Privatemusings 04:24, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

ah... it's not! doh! - I think it looked that way to me a) because I'm stupid and b) because I wasn't logged in ;-) Privatemusings 04:25, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

weird image behaviour

could someone else confirm that the topographic map of oz appears as a redlink non-image when viewing this page from an IP? - that's what's happening for me, and it's odd! Privatemusings 01:44, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

I am seeing the same problem, and only when logged out. John Vandenberg 02:53, 11 February 2009 (UTC)
Same here, but it worked after I purged the page. The wiki uses InstantCommons which has not been widely tested yet. Angela 05:06, 11 February 2009 (UTC)
just confirming it's fixed for me too... prolly the purge thing? Privatemusings 02:32, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

frontpage redesign

After grumbling a bit, and then announcing my experimentation on the mailing list yesterday, I felt 'bold' this morning, and have gone ahead and dun it! It's a 'copy and paste' move, which I sort of vaguely understand creates some problems - I've referred to the page history here, and welcome ideas or technical means to ensure that we're fully compliant with whatever 'history' requirements are in vogue :-) Comments / tweaks / merciless editing of the mainpage is also most welcome... I hope this represents a modest improvement over the previous, and will of course continue to improve etc. over the next few days etc. cheers, Privatemusings 21:55, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

Seeking inclusion of a bookmark icon

Is it possible to have the source code for pages at include a bookmark icon? I am asking because I think there may be others (like me) who maintain bookmarked pages as small icons in their bookmarks toolbar (without addition of description) and which can then be clicked on by site. Such an addition will also add further professionalism to the site - similarly to English Wikipedia. I think a *.ico image (being a miniature of our Wikimedia Australia logo) at the start of the source code will be particularly appropriate. At this stage the icon is just the generic dog-eared plain paper icon which does not provide any clue as to the bookmarked link. With thanks. VirtualSteve 23:31, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

You're taking about a favicon.ico. The detail is here: [1] Simply we need a that is a small version of File:Logo.png.
Alternatively another location can be specified using mw:Manual:$wgFavicon. markhurd 04:07, 14 December 2009 (UTC)
