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)
