1  Schome / Help with website / Schome Park blogs on: April 03, 2008, 09:47:07 AM
Since this is apparently the place to post such things, despite the name of the forum, I shall post this here:

All users of the Schome Park Profiles site now have WordPress blogs at (e.g. Furthermore, there is a group blog which anyone can post in or edit at

Login is performed via, using the same details. If you don't have an account on said site, you should ask me for an attachment.

And I know there's a checkbox that just throws errors if you try unticking it. I'm working on that. I'm also (hopefully) going to add a media browser that lets you insert images from your ┬ÁBlog that have been emails to

I log chat too, you know. I imagine many people here do. I'm quite capable of quoting you whenever. In addition, my mention of IRC moots your forum-related points, as I wasn't talking about the forum. I hate forum-like things for the reasons you mentioned above. Plus, they scare me. >.>
3  Virtual worlds (in education) / Virtual world discussions / Prim counts? on: January 22, 2008, 07:57:07 PM
As I mentioned somewhere-or-other, I think it would be both feasible and useful to have an automated prim count system. This would consist of a robot that weekly (or any-other-time-period-ly) counted the prims in-world and updated the wiki page accordingly. Such a system is fairly easy to build.

Any comments? :P

(For the inevitable "Why?" question: because I'm lazy and like automation. Also, a weekly robot would be more reliable than a weekly human)

(P.S. where should this go?)
4  Schome / Schome discussions / MediaWiki on: January 15, 2008, 05:30:44 PM
Okay. The version of MediaWiki used by WikiWorks is currently 1.5.8. The latest version is 1.11. 1.5.8 is several years old. The "legacy" line - i.e. the lowest supported - and potentially secure - version is 1.6.x. There is no excuse for not being on at least version 1.6. Furthermore, the server is running PHP4 - which is unsupported as of 1/1/2008. Six months notice were given. As such, you're running outdated software on an outdated webserver, and thus lacking in both functionality and security.

In the middle of last year I was assured this would be corrected by October. This quite clearly didn't happen.

So, why are we still using five-year-old, deprecated software?
