Talk about Hapa

Say What you will, all I ask is that what you say be truthful. --Hapa 18:12, 15 March 2006 (MST)

Social Bookmarks

Hi Kolomona. I'm creating a new wiki (it's not up yet) and I was wondering how you created the social bookmark frame along the left side of Open Tutorial? Were you able to add it to monobook.php? Dryguy 08:26, 15 June 2006 (MST)

Thanks Kolomona! That is extremely helpful. Sorry about leaving my message in the wrong place earlier - I was momentarily confused about which page I was editing. I'll let you know when I have something up and running, and I will be sure to acknowledge your help. Dryguy 11:15, 15 June 2006 (MST)


Future projects similar to Construct a pentagon might be a bit easier to build if the math module were installed. See Meanwhile, I'll work around it. Bear 16:25, 23 June 2006 (MST)


I've created a project page on Wikipedia, summarizing some of the concerns I think important. I suspect a great many OT editors will have had previous WP experience and I'd like to suggest you link this on the OT main page. I shudder to think of hordes of freaked-out refugees from the WP behavioral sink descending on us and running amok without any guidance.

Please check the page for accuracy and conformance to OT's mission. Thank you. Bear 05:28, 28 June 2006 (MST)


I have in mind a project (utterly unrelated to OT's mission) that ought to be hosted on a MediaWiki installation. I'm not interested in Wikia; I can't deal with that kind of fanaticism. You seem to have a pretty fair handle on how to operate MW; would you like to discuss my project? Bear 17:24, 9 July 2006 (MST)

Thank you for the compliment. I am in no way a MediaWiki guru, but I can obviously get it working. I'd be happy to discuss your project with you. If you would rather not discuss on a wiki then you can email me at --Hapa 09:57, 10 July 2006 (MST)

Sorry for the delay in reply; too many balls in the air.

Carnie is completely unrelated to OT, so I went looking for a temporary home; you can see it now here. With all respect to the host, he's taken on a heavy load and I'd probably prefer working with someone (a) with more experience as a MediaWiki honcho and (b) more of an active interest in this particular project.

Meanwhile, I took on a pretty heavy load just customizing MediaWiki-space for the project; then got discouraged when I ran into technical difficulties. I'm ashamed to see I've written next to nothing about the project itself. Wait a day or so and I'll at least scribble in a page of ideas. If the project appeals to you, we'll go from there.

There's nothing secret about Carnie; just the opposite. Bear 20:57, 24 August 2006 (MDT)


Hi Hapa,

I am interested in installing the Polls extension in my MediaWiki wiki. Yours is the only site I could find that runs it. Would you be able to give me some links to existing polls you've used so I can have a look at them in action? I couldn't find anything by searching for "poll"... :)

cheers (if you could email me too that would be fantastic) --Pfctdayelise 06:12, 1 August 2006 (MDT)


Hi Kolomono, I was wondering how you made your ISBN links pop out a preview window out showing the book for sale on amazon. Is there an extension for this somewhere? Also, I saw above that someone asked how you made the bookmark sidebar, I was wondering the samething also. I have a wiki running at I appreciate any help you can provide about this. Thanks--Rovo 07:00, 22 February 2007 (MST)


I agree that spam is a plague and I'm glad you found some sort of a solution; but it's cumbersome. Suggest you apply the captcha only to new and unregistered users. That is to say, I'd like to feel that you trust me by now not to run a spambot. Yes? Bear 18:39, 19 January 2008 (MST)
