Title: The PtokaX Wiki (a. k. a. WikiPx)
Post by: bastya_elvtars on 03 December, 2004, 02:53:49
hey all my friends!

i am planning to build a website for lawmaker, but i thought about going further and making a complete lua scripts page, with ability to upload scripts, forum, etc.

what i want in connection with this, is YOUR opinion about it.

it is not intended to compete with the lua board... that would be just another site, which hosts and discusses lua scripts at the same time, as no such site yet out there.

What do you think?
Title:
Post by: bolamix on 03 December, 2004, 06:15:41
Heya!
That could be interesting, although I don't quite see how such a site wouldn't compete with this one... Script-sharing/hosting, discussion board... how exactly would it be different? Just curious ;)

Post by: Herodes on 03 December, 2004, 14:10:41
You know what is the only thing missing from this community ?

A Wiki ! we need one ..
it would be nice to share knowledge like that ...
everyone will be able to contribute to it, with links, scripts, lua tips, ptx tips, networking tips and any other stuff ..

I wish for a wiki ;)
Title:
Post by: kepp on 03 December, 2004, 15:09:51
You mean like General discussin like LUA itself, and not based upon PtokaX Inteface if so yea, good idea :)

Post by: Optimus on 03 December, 2004, 16:10:20
Hi guys this lua forum covers alot as some 1 sayd before. So it needs to have something new/special so that would be wiki, new examples, other hi-tech shit hehe. But since all is in lua5.0 or higher (the internet) it wouldn't help us alot at this moment but it will ofcourse when new Ptokax with lua5.02 will arrive. But that's pure my opinion, i don't wanne bounce any heads hehe.

Let's hear what other will come up with.

Greetingz Optimus

nice, i see you are interested in the stuff. now i just have 2 work out the details of a ptokax lua wiki and we can go on...

you can find me in many places... if you are willing to help, get in contact with me ;)
Title:
Post by: bastya_elvtars on 09 December, 2004, 02:36:55
Basically I established that wiki using phpwiki, but i have no time & patiance to maintain it. So somebody who can and is willing to administer it, get in contact with me please.
Title:
Post by: bolamix on 13 December, 2004, 19:32:42
Hiyall ^^

I'd be interested in contributing to that wiki. I don't know how much work it means to maintain/administer it, I'm not sure I've got enough time, between kids, work, hub and hub's forum. But I'd sure be glad to give back to the lua community, so please tell me if I can be of help  ;)

The PtokaX Wiki ( aka WikiPx ) (http://ptokaxwiki.no-ip.com/wikka.php?wakka=StartHere)

Guess what .. the ptx got a wiki web ... ;)

it is a noble gesture of bastya_elvtars to host it , the only thing needed is US! to maintain it to and make it grow... consider it a knowledge base and reserve your questions for the forum ...
The wiki isnt set up with the purpose of replacing this amazing forum. It cannot and never will be able to compete at the same level with it ... The wiki administration will not accept any script posting apart from the cases that the scripts are set up like examples for doing things.
Contribute and be happy ;D

PS:( dont get angry if you see things getting deleted, moved or changed .. if you do get angry with this kind of things pls dont even try because wiki is a collaborative way to share knowledge...)
Title:
Post by: bolamix on 15 December, 2004, 20:20:50
Hey that's great news!
Thx bastya_elvtars, and thx Herodes too :D

Edit: when I try to register there, the wiki tells me that "User name must be WikiName formatted!". But I can't access the page explaining "WikiName" without being logged on o_O Any hint, please? :]
Title:
Post by: bastya_elvtars on 15 December, 2004, 20:58:48
maybe i can get a normal domain name for it, not the unsure no-ip dns (altho its not a bad service). i will also optimise the os on the machine, but now i have more important things tio do.

till then use that wiki, it will be very nice. altho WikiNames for users are weird :rolleyes:

please Herodes find a fix to this!
Title:
Post by: Herodes on 15 December, 2004, 21:07:32
CamelCase names also known as WikiNames.

ThisIsAWikiName  .. : this is a valid wikiname ...

Thisisawikiname or This Is A Wiki Name : arent wikinames ...

It has been a standard for wikis since the begging ... pls comply .. tilll a solution is (maybe is ) found ...
Title:
Post by: bolamix on 15 December, 2004, 21:16:47
Uh... not sure I understand...

If I write "BolaMix" the wiki will accept it, but not "bolamix"?

Edit: I answered my own question... what a strange new rule this is to me! :D
Title:
Post by: bastya_elvtars on 17 December, 2004, 05:57:35
Hi folks,

its late here, but:

1) i made the wiki look a bit nicer, i hope PPK and Ptaczek won't mind that i borrowed the PtokaX logo

2) if you really wanna contribute in the page, please read this (http://wikka.jsnx.com/FormattingRules)  link on editing wiki!

Enjoy the page!

*** edit ***

fuck... i should study but as i found the syntax i will spend much time on this :(

cause this is MUCh more fun than BBCode..

Title:
Post by: bolamix on 17 December, 2004, 16:42:57
Very nice indeed :D

Just one thing: I'd really like to contribute to that wiki but whenever I try to edit a page (from the "Wanted Pages"), I get an error "You don't have write access to this page. You might need to register an account to get write access." I'm logged in, what else do I need to do? Thx in advance ;)
Title:
Post by: Herodes on 17 December, 2004, 19:43:51
If you want to create a non-existant page ( which is what the Wanted Pages means... ) you click on the WikiPage name (from the list)

PS: I hope you werent trying to edit the WantedPages ,... as you found out u cant ..  

*Non-Existant pages are WikiWords with a dashed underline

Yes I was aware of the meaning of the WantedPages, I had a couple of ideas on how to present things... but when I click on the WikiPage Name in the list (eg. http://ptokaxwiki.no-ip.com/wikka.php?wakka=PermanentBan/edit ) I get the error I mentioned above. I'm trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong ?(
Title:
Post by: bastya_elvtars on 19 December, 2004, 19:42:54
sorry a config mitype caused all. now i fixed the whole thing, however only registered users can edit things on purpose.

Of course, that makes sense.

i see bolamix you are working hard ;)

thx and enxourage more ppl to come come come and edit
Title:
Post by: bolamix on 21 December, 2004, 06:35:09
Hehe yw ;) Anyway you may have noticed that I'm doing the more simple bits of the wiki, so we're gonna need some professionals to complete the more techy pages!

Now to business: I have a question about the FileUpload function in this wiki (http://ptokaxwiki.no-ip.com/wikka.php?wakka=FileUpload). I mean there is no "Upload file" button like I was expecting, only column headers at the top:
Code: [Select]
Attachment         Size         Date Added. If I try and edit the page it says "{{files}}" at the top of the edit box, and I have no clue how to use that tag. Didn't find any info on the Wikka website either. Could anyone please point me in the right direction? Cuz I like adding screenshots to software help files :D

Thx in advance.
Title:
Post by: bolamix on 22 December, 2004, 14:48:13
K apparently this is a feature, only admins can upload things. Bastya said he'd look into it after Dec. 28. Until then, I'll link the images from my webspace.

Edit: when the site is reachable again :/

Nope, sorry, false alert
i can see the images now

nice logo :) but the wiki is about the PtokaX first, and then LUA for PtokaX. No? And anyway I hardly remember what the wiki looks like bwaahahahaha  ;(


just kiddin' 8)
Title:
Post by: bastya_elvtars on 03 January, 2005, 22:37:21
i would be the happiest if you could se the wiki

this would also mean that my internet is freed again and i can use dc ;)
Title:
Post by: bolamix on 04 January, 2005, 06:11:30
I'm sure you would, mate :rolleyes: Any chance of that problem being cleared up in the not-too-distant future? I imagine that campus network admins won't disable that "proxy-only" connection without a good reason...

Yeah, reason enough to keep blocking the network... dc++ traffic, especially combined with bittorrent traffic, eats up a network's bandwidth in no time.

Post by: bastya_elvtars on 05 January, 2005, 21:36:35
news is worse than i thought... we have to setup a gateway here in the campus.... nvm we will solve it, the wiki will run again!

IMHO its a shorter break than the one in the development of px. ;p

Well, the wiki is quite under-visited. This might be due to the strange engine we are using. we are switching to a new engine soon, which is morer suited for this purpose and can be backed up easier. Currently the stuff in the old wiki is being transported.
