Unless Jay has any objections, I'm going to leave old posts on for a minimum of 12 hours or so, up to max 5 or 6 posts. Lest they don't get seen. NonvocalScream 00:45, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

your code here

considering altering off the signature of this one to reflect the blog. NonvocalScream 02:55, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Brion never signs the post, but I'm 100% sure he was the one who did it. Cbrown1023 talk 13:38, 9 August 2008 (UTC)
Yup, it says he owns the post. NonvocalScream 16:27, 9 August 2008 (UTC)
Added the signature to the blog actually, I'm seeking to see if we can do this auto. Would like to see it mirror exactly. NonvocalScream 03:27, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

copy/paste

I usually copy and paste the inputs to maintain perfect sync. NonvocalScream 16:21, 10 September 2009 (UTC)

The title of the post you're referring to was later changed. Cbrown1023 talk 19:59, 10 September 2009 (UTC)
Ah... the blog software does not have a history or change log. :| I'll be more watchful. NonvocalScream 21:00, 10 September 2009 (UTC)

Full names

Good: MediaWiki 1.17.0 by Tim Starling (June 22, 2011)

Bad: WikiLove: An experiment in appreciation by howief (June 25, 2011)

Illustration of issue bolded.

The standard was that full names would be attributed to a blog post. On the public face of the Foundation site, where this blogbox transcludes, I see user names, not full names of the staff authors. It looks like it is feeding from the RSS, so I logged into the blog, however, I don't have direct access to check to see if staff names are generated as usernames. Please advise on what needs to happen to get full names instead of usernames here. Best, NonvocalScream 03:40, 26 June 2011 (UTC)

Thank you. Will be sure to help keep that updated as if I catch it again. NonvocalScream 04:03, 26 June 2011 (UTC)
This doesn't solve the problem, albeit minor, of inconsistent user names in feeds, however this is hardly worth the effort of renaming users on Wordpress. Nemo 07:50, 26 June 2011 (UTC)
