Page renaming

I thought that HaskellWiki:Community is more concise than HaskellWiki:Community portal. In addition, the Haskell Performance Resource is also just called Performance. -- Wolfgang Jeltsch 23:27, 25 February 2006 (UTC)

Page position

I argue this page should be removed from its prominent position at the top of the front page. This page is getting 10,000 hits, making it one of the most popular pages, but with very little content of wide appeal.

I think the name is misleading viewers thinking 'Community' will point them to something like thing like the content of the 'The Haskell community' column on the frontpage, when its just a guide to editing the wiki (which only 1% of visitors want to do).

So, my proposal. HaskellWiki:Community_Portal should be removed from the top of the front page altogether. Its second place, at the bottom of the page near the editing facilities seems more appropriate.

While we're here, I think 'All pages' should also disappear from the top of the front page. Site maps aren't generally the first thing you see on a web site, right? And that the remaining elements of the bar:

                 All Pages - Categories - Community Portal
   Language | Packages | Standard libraries | Idioms | Tools | Proposals

should appear on the left hand column of the front page. Currently we have to scroll over this stuff to get to the most popular content.

Opinions? -- User:DonStewart

Makes sense. —Ashley Y 00:57, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

Wiki dump

Is it easily possible to get a dump of the current state of all wiki pages. I mean the Wiki markup not the generated HTML. I also do not need images. For HTML I could use wget starting at Special:AllPages.

I would love see integration with github if possible. Would be nice to be able to update the wiki by git workflow (fork, pull request) and you get many 3rd party tools to use. But this seem like a huge task to be done Wizzup (talk) 11:04, 18 December 2016 (UTC)

captcha not visible in (emacs-)w3m :(

I wanted to create an account here, and I was using emacs-w3m-1.4.259-alt0.2.20080303 with w3m-0.5.2-alt2.1.

The captcha wasn't shown in emacs-w3m, so couldn't register without switching to another, bloated browser for a while.

Perhaps, there are ways to mitigate this problem--either on the side of the wiki (by modifying the markup for the captcha so that it makes some sense in emacs-w3m) or finding what to improve in emacs-w3m for it to show such captchas, aren't there?--Imz 00:30, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Oh, I wasn't able to post this comment for the same reason: edits with links suppose that I solve a captcha, but me using emacs-w3m wasn't able to see it! (So, now I have pasted my comment into another, bloated browser.) :( --Imz 00:30, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

They came up with a solution for such a problem at the Emacs Wiki: they have a special URL to set up cookies for w3m, see the link under Editing Emacs Wiki section. Can a solution be devised for the Haskell Wiki?--Imz 13:05, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

Cleanup robot?

If the site support, there should be some robot account that do basic cleanup like found rotted links and marked them [1]. Wizzup (talk) 10:56, 18 December 2016 (UTC)
