I'm one of the maintainers of UnrealWiki.
The patches I've written are on WikiPatches, mainly dealing with using CSS with Wiki. (Wiki is a perfect embodiment of the ideas behind CSS -- the content and the presentation are seperate).
You are warned that I'm a complete Perl beginner. My code works, but it's not especially elegant.
incomplete list of patches:
On MeatballWiki you have been signing as Tarquin. However, on MeatballWiki we have a rule of MeatBall:UsingRealNames. Would you mind? If not, we could just anonymize all your postings, no harm done. -- SunirShah
If I'd arrived at Meatball by another route, I wouldn't mind at all. But I came from places where I'm already known as "tarquin", and indeed where my real name isn't known. I'm trying to be consistent, which is true to the spirit of MeatBall:UsingRealNames if not the letter.
For that matter, how can you know if people's real names are real names? They conform to a particular pattern, that's all. If I'd used "TarquinHenderson?" you would have assumed it was a real name.
I'm not trying to buck the rules in the manner of Wikipedia's 24 (MeatBall:CaseOfaWikipediaTroll). I don't see my nickname as an "ever shifting, discardable alias", rather as just something I'm known by. In real life, I have one nickname in my immediate family, and different friends call me different things (eg "Oi, you!" ;-)
I'm amused by the handle "Tarquin of UnrealWiki" you've given me (shades of LocutusOfBorg?). It's better esthetically than the contortions I was trying on the SandBox (TarQuin etc), but I expect I'll be "Tarquin" longer than I'll be running UnrealWiki. -- Tarquin
If you put your alias on your namepage, those who know you by "Tarquin" elsewhere will figure out who you are if that's important to you. -- SunirShah
I'll stick to being an IP. :-) -- Tarquin
I think my ISP (the dreaded AOL) gives me a fairly consistent IP, so I'm recognizable on Meatball's Recent Changes page by number if not by name :-)
We still love you, Tarquin. ;) -- SunirShah
