Layout test pages

If you have any example of layout for the wiki that you would like to share, please make a link to your examples here.

Would be nice if the main page made it clearer that all the up-to-date stuff is on the wiki. It's just two links and fairly easy to miss. -Ulfalizer (talk) 09:32, 12 April 2013 (MDT)

Anonymous editing

Why are non-registered users allowed to edit talk pages ? Bregalad (talk) 09:23, 27 March 2014 (MDT)

As a means of reporting technical problems with registration to registered users, for one. Almost all automated vandalism gets reverted within twenty-four hours anyway. And because some drive-by edits have in fact been constructive. --Tepples (talk) 18:29, 27 March 2014 (MDT)
It also makes spambots less likely to skip immediately to the sign-up page. Instead, they try to post on whatever pages anonymous visitors can post on, where the ABUSE filter picks up on behavior patterns in the bot software. Looking at all the $#!+ that doesn't get through helps me figure out how to stop even those spambots that bother to register. --Tepples (talk) 19:54, 16 July 2014 (MDT)

I am editing through my router -- 17:24, 10 November 2016 (MST)

And through my neighbor's router on the same ISP -- 17:27, 10 November 2016 (MST)
And through 4G LTE on a cellphone. Why do I have the same IP address each time? Reverse proxy much? -- 17:30, 10 November 2016 (MST)
That must be it. This plus an edit from work are all in the same /30 as the result of nslookup --Tepples (talk) 17:32, 10 November 2016 (MST)
