20:18:04 <aaronduino> Ok

20:18:52 <aaronduino> *anything
20:19:13 <wob_jonas> dunno, just read the wiki a bit to see how other articles work
20:19:18 <aaronduino> Ok.
20:19:22 <wob_jonas> and the introduction on the main page too
20:19:47 <aaronduino> k
20:19:59 <ais523> aaronduino: you'll need to introduce yourself to the wiki first, if you haven't yet
20:20:05 <ais523> we have a lot of problems with spambots
20:20:10 <ais523> see http://esolangs.org/wiki/Esolang:Introduce_yourself
20:20:43 <aaronduino> Oh. Good to know. Thx
20:20:43 <ais523> apart from that, when creating an article, the main thing that people forget to do that's helpful is to make sure it's actually possible to find the article
20:20:52 <ais523> link it from the language list, and place it in appropriate categories
20:20:56 <aaronduino> Oh yeah.
20:21:30 <wob_jonas> yeah, we actually have both a language list and a languages category, both independently maintained for some reason
20:21:35 <wob_jonas> I don't understand why
20:21:43 <aaronduino> Huh
20:21:50 <wob_jonas> I think there are discrepancies between them but I haven't really checked
20:22:00 <aaronduino> The main page (and documentation) is on github (github.com/aaronduino/asciidots); should I copy and paste from that or just write a little description on the wiki and link to the github page?
20:22:05 <wob_jonas> it's just some crazy habit esoteric people do
20:22:46 <wob_jonas> I guess an esowiki needs some overarching esotericness that isn't too distracting, or else some worse esoterisation of the wiki would pop up
20:23:11 <aaronduino> Huh
20:23:15 <wob_jonas> (some say natural languages work that way too, people make it more and more complicated as long as they can still speak it. I don't really believe that theory.)
20:23:30 <aaronduino> Huh
20:23:44 <HackEgo> [wiki] [[Special:Log/newusers]] create * Ais523 signup process tester 1 * New user account
20:23:50 <aaronduino> So, should I copy and paste documentation into esolangs if its is maintained on Github?
20:24:27 <ais523> aaronduino: often it'll need reformatting to look good; Esolang doesn't use Markdown
20:24:40 <aaronduino> Ok. Will do
20:26:31 <aaronduino> On the Introduce Yourself page, do I need to write the timestamp, or is it appended automagically?
20:27:06 <wob_jonas> if you use four tildes for a signature, the wiki will replace that with a timestamp when you save the page
20:27:12 <aaronduino> Ok. thx

20:31:48 <ais523> I just changed the signup form so that it would tell people about the introduction page
20:31:54 <ais523> so that they don't have to get an edit rejected to discover it exists
20:32:29 <ais523> wob_jonas: specifically, three tildes is just username, four is username + timestamp, five is just timestamp
20:32:50 <ais523> four is therefore the standard signature

20:33:23 <ais523> not that I know of
20:34:22 <oerjan> ais523: i thought half of the point of the introduction system was that it would thwart the kind of spammers that use humans for signup but bots for editing; that extra inf may break that.
20:34:26 <oerjan> *info
20:35:18 <ais523> let's see if it turns out to be a problem, first
20:35:31 <ais523> if nothing else, it'll be amusing to see what the human spammers say
20:35:43 <ais523> and several new people have complained about losing edits because they didn't know about the introduction rule
20:36:07 <ais523> well, at least one
20:36:51 <oerjan> if it were possible, it would be better to put such a warning on the edit button itself.
20:37:35 <oerjan> (that is, triggered by _starting_ an edit of the wrong page)
20:37:40 <ais523> it is possible, not sure how many people would read it though
20:37:52 <ais523> nobody reads the current request to make sure pages are correctly categorised
20:38:05 <oerjan> well in such a way that you cannot edit the page, naturally.
20:38:21 <ais523> oh, that's harder
20:38:48 <ais523> I'm not sure we can detect whether a user's been introduced or not from CSS or JS without using AJAX
20:38:51 <ais523> although, hmm
20:39:02 <wob_jonas> oerjan: there's the old internet truth that no matter how many flashing red warnings and click-throughs and "I accept" checkboxes you put, eventually you just can't make some people to read things
20:39:05 <ais523> there's a possible fix but it's really complex and would require a change to the sitewide config
20:39:35 <ais523> we could make it so that users become autoconfirmed at 1 edit, then use the !autoconfirmed status as a trigger to tell people to introduce themselves
20:40:53 <oerjan> wob_jonas: but if there was no actual edit form for them to fill in, they might at least suspect they were doing something wrong.
20:42:06 <wob_jonas> oerjan: you mean you'd just get the source view for an uneditable page? maybe
20:42:22 <oerjan> more depressing is that since the introduction system started, i recall exactly _one_ spammer getting caught in it. just the other day.
20:42:33 <shachaf> good afternoerjan

20:51:15 <fizzie> I'd be surprised if no-one had written a markdown-to-wikitext converter.
20:51:17 <oerjan> the nerve!
20:51:18 <wob_jonas> aarnduino: there's probably no perfect way for that, because Markdown is stupid and impossible to parse. it's probably the second worst wiki formatting system after Tiki's
20:51:18 <aaronduino> oerjan: thx
20:51:35 <oerjan> perhaps that famous pandoc can do it
20:51:42 <aaronduino> Well, its hard to parse, but great to write in
20:52:01 <fizzie> pandoc does have it as a supported format, yes.
20:52:25 <fizzie> There's also a few MediaWiki modules that add support for Markdown, but I don't think we want to experiment with those.
20:52:28 <shachaf> wob_jonas: What syntax should I use instead of Markdown?
20:53:07 <wob_jonas> shachaf: I quite like mediawiki syntax myself
20:53:22 <ais523> I'm pretty sure markdown-to-mediawiki convertors exist, but that doesn't necessarily mean they're any good
20:53:24 <shachaf> No way, it's way too heavyweight for taking notes.
20:53:27 <oerjan> surely mediawiki is even harder to parse
20:53:38 <shachaf> I just want to write things down and have them be readable in the source language.
20:53:40 <ais523> mediawiki syntax is much more internally consistent than markdown is
20:53:41 <shachaf> Not for a wiki.
20:53:48 <shachaf> Well, maybe for a wiki.
20:53:49 <ais523> if it's harder to parse, it's because it has more cases, not because they're more complex
20:54:20 <shachaf> Do you ever go mushroom-hunting?
20:54:20 <aaronduino> The main thing I like about markdown is using backticks for code instead of spaces or <code>x</code>
20:54:48 <ais523> low-overhead markup languages have three main requirements: 1) not looking excessively artificial when read (i.e. mistakable for text files); 2) capable of expressing arbitrary content; 3) being easy for unfamiliar users to write in
20:55:19 <ais523> Markdown fails all three, IMO (whereas MediaWiki syntax passes 2 and in simple cases 3)
20:55:33 <ais523> I'd rather like something that passed 1 and 2 simultaneously
20:55:34 * oerjan hasn't been mushroom-hunting since ... _possibly_ early 90s, quite likely 80s.
20:55:37 <ais523> all three at once seems fairly hard
20:56:14 <shachaf> Markdown isn't too far from passing 1, I think.
20:57:10 <wob_jonas> there's also a case for just plain HTML, features restricted by the parser for security, and added features in HTML syntax only for things that HTML can't easily express
20:57:17 -!- sleffy has joined.
20:57:19 <ais523> I know, I've used a subset of Markdown in the past when 1 was the most important feature
20:57:29 <wob_jonas> eg. some syntax for internal wikilinks that looks HTML-like
20:57:38 <ais523> wob_jonas: that's basically BBcode
20:57:49 <ais523> which is pretty good if you want 2+3 and don't care about 1 at all
20:58:02 <wob_jonas> ais523: yes, bbcode is decent

23:42:12 <wob_jonas> http://www.smbc-comics.com/comic/fuel-efficiency reminds me to the captivating idea I have of a tram so long it doesn't even have to move at all: passengers just get on in one door in one station and exit on another door in the other station.
23:42:44 <wob_jonas> the problem with that is that cars couldn't cross the road with the tram then
23:44:28 <imode> you might as well have a walking underground subway then.
23:44:31 <Hoolootwo> how would it not move?
23:44:38 <Hoolootwo> just shut the trains down, and walk
23:45:18 <Hoolootwo> in one of Asimov books there's walkways that are similar to trains
23:46:09 <wob_jonas> Hoolootwo: yeah, walking strips.
23:46:12 <shachaf> wob_jonas: sounds like a topic for #trains hth
23:46:14 <wob_jonas> but a long tram is funnier
