When I looked at Tech:Timelines at 2019, it says that you're a sysadmin. I just wanted to ask why in 2020 are you not a sysadmin anymore? I'm always looking forward to anyone being granted advanced global permissions on Miraheze.

== Repeatedly re-creating page out of scope ==
 
 
I just fill in a red link on my name, what should I use if I see a red link on my name again?  #redirect [[Meta:User:MarkDilley]] or something? Best,  [[MarkDilley]]
 
:Your user page can be created at [[User:MarkDilley]] or globally at [[mh:login:User:MarkDilley]]. [[MarkDilley]] is in the main namespace and we do not have individual articles about users or people. I noticied that you had created the page before and were warned on another ocassion about it by [[Special:AbuseFilter|the AbuseFilter]] so I have prevented you from creating that specfic page again.  ~ [[User:RhinosF1|RhinosF1]] - <sub>[[User talk: RhinosF1|(chat)]]</sub><sup>[[Special:CentralAuth/RhinosF1|· acc]][[Special:Contributions/RhinosF1|· c]] </sup> - ({{User:RhinosF1/sigcol|1=RhinosF1}}) 05:41, 22 April 2020 (UTC)
 
:: These things make sense to you folks who work here every day, across the whole project.  They don't make sense to the casual person in this community.  The thing I like about how wiki communities can be, is that they can be more friendly and forgiving of perceived or real errors. And I just went and changed my preferences to make the <nowiki>~~~</nowiki> point to [[User:MarkDilley]]. Best,  [[MarkDilley]]
 
:::Don’t worry, I’ve only prevented the creation (for everyone) of a single page. I understand if you got confused. No harm done and you’re welcome to do anything else in line with policy.  ~ [[User:RhinosF1|RhinosF1]] - <sub>[[User talk: RhinosF1|(chat)]]</sub><sup>[[Special:CentralAuth/RhinosF1|· acc]][[Special:Contributions/RhinosF1|· c]] </sup> - ({{User:RhinosF1/sigcol|1=RhinosF1}}) 06:14, 22 April 2020 (UTC)
 
:::: Thanks, but you do see my point, policy is community knowledge, which is fantastic, also the community could be friendlier about it, thank for the friendly dialogue.  Best,  [[User:MarkDilley]]
 
:::::{{Ping|MarkDilley}} I think it's on you to learn some wiki basics.  Meta here is for discussions of policy and management of the whole wiki farm.  Even if you became a topic of discussion on Meta, a page on Meta bearing your name would never be appropriate (except in User: space, as shown).
 
:::::There are so many cases of spambots and advertisers creating such pages, that I don't fault users for quickly deleting yours and not thinking about whether it would be gentler to offer you assistance.
 
:::::Here's one bit of advice: It's 4 tildes, not 3, and you'll get an automatic timestamp too. In fact, if you go back to Preferences and undo your work, the default signature will link to your user '''and''' talk pages.  Cheers!  {{User:Spike/signature meat}}<small>16:16 22-Apr-2020</small>
 
: Spike, thanks for the education.  I have been working on wiki since 2002, know the developer of MediaWiki and all that. It is a choice, the first handful of wiki actively consider that words are timeless, and if they aren't refactor them out so no one has to read them. Cheers,  [[User:MarkDilley]]
 
::There is no single developer of mediawiki, hence, what just said is incorrect.  ~ [[User:RhinosF1|RhinosF1]] - <sub>[[User talk: RhinosF1|(chat)]]</sub><sup>[[Special:CentralAuth/RhinosF1|· acc]][[Special:Contributions/RhinosF1|· c]] </sup> - ({{User:RhinosF1/sigcol|1=RhinosF1}}) 06:28, 23 April 2020 (UTC)
 
::: Forgive me for misspeaking. Lead developer when they went from Usemod and developed MediaWiki ... although I don't think the team was too big in 2003.  "Around the same time, Brion Vibber effectively took over as lead developer and release manager of the software. The code is now maintained by a large and active group of developers." '''[[MW:MediaWiki history]]'''.  Cheers,  [[User:MarkDilley]]
 
::: Nice, We’ve got multiple mediawiki & wikimedia developers on miraheze. Just to be safe, would you be able to confirm you are also [[mediawikiwiki:User:MarkDilley]] as we want to avoid possible impersonation given your comments.  ~ [[User:RhinosF1|RhinosF1]] - <sub>[[User talk: RhinosF1|(chat)]]</sub><sup>[[Special:CentralAuth/RhinosF1|· acc]][[Special:Contributions/RhinosF1|· c]] </sup> - ({{User:RhinosF1/sigcol|1=RhinosF1}}) 06:38, 23 April 2020 (UTC)
