Programming question[edit]

Woops, this computer remembered me using my old Rcouch account (which I'd like to delete) on that last comment....

A related programming question: How hard would it be to prompt non-logged in users to either log-in or create an account when they submit edits? I think they should still be given the chance to just use their IP address without an account, but it's a good excuse to prompt them to create an account (and a good reminder for those of us with an account to login if we forgot!). --RobertC 19:26, 13 Aug 2005 (CEST)

It is a great idea. I don't think it is very easy, but maybe one day we will have the resources to do it. In the meantime I'll add it to the list of suggested enhancements. --Matthew Faulconer 07:12, 14 Aug 2005 (CEST)

Done. --Matthew Faulconer 05:59, 24 Aug 2005 (CEST)

Robert, I notice Cheryl's new post is extremely long in the entry window yet your other posts just give an excerpt & an invitation to "read more." I write pretty short posts, so this hasn't cropped up as an issue yet. I prefer the excerpt version & wonder if you can fix that with Cheryl's Less.9 post & tell me how to do it if per adventure I have a longer-than-normal-for-me post. Thanks--Nanette 02:01, 26 February 2007 (CET)

Thanks for pointing this out, I got it fixed. There's a little icon at the top of the editor that will insert a "more" break. I think the icon has a little box above a separated larger box, or something. --RobertC 03:41, 26 February 2007 (CET)

Scripture journal[edit]

On Matthewfaulconer's page, he lists "less introspective" as one of the goals of this site that differentiates it from other blog sites. I personally would like to hear other people's introspective thoughts, esp. in regard to the questions on the commentary page. I think allowing a place for such ruminations on this site will help create a sense of community as well as spark ideas that may eventually become an improvement on the main commentary pages.

However, I understand this may be beyond the scope of this site, at least as originally intended. This also adds 'noise' to the recent changes page, which is probably followed by many users. So if a personal scripture journal is not appropriate for this site, please let me know. Because these personal reflections don't directly further the main goal and scope of this site (they're too introspective), I'm putting links on the discussion page, not the commentary page.

I like the idea of people posting some personal reflections on the scriptures that may or may not work well (and not having to worry about whether it does) on their own personal pages. The issue you bring up about noise on the recent changes page is legitimate. I think it wouldn't be too hard to add another switch on this page so that you could hide edits to user pages. I'll add that to the list of enhancements.--Matthew Faulconer 16:08, 16 Aug 2005 (CEST)

Please see...[edit]

Robert, check out my comments here. I hope you don't mind me using Heb 5:1-5 as the example. I wanted to use this example because I figured you agreed that your name should have been removed there. --Matthew Faulconer 17:32, 25 Feb 2006 (UTC)

Moroni 7[edit]

I just got around to looking at the changes you made to Moro 7:1-5 and the stuff you added to the talk page. I like the improvements to the commmentary page. Nice work. Also, I want to continue working on this chapter and this talk pge stuff is good food for thought. Thanks, --Matthew Faulconer 14:06, 28 Apr 2006 (UTC)


Thanks for the additions to the Jew and Gentile page. Good stuff. --Matthew Faulconer 07:09, 6 Oct 2006 (UTC)

And thanks for the note to look at the T&S post. It was interesting. --Matthew Faulconer 16:47, 9 April 2007 (CEST)

RobertC, when you get a minute, would you check out my questions on my user page, please? I'm trying to get my wiki legs. Thanks --Nanette 18:51, 27 Jan 2007 (UTC)

RE: CR Citations[edit]

Thanks for the feedback regarding the "Related Links" to GC talks. I had previously talked to Matthew about adding links as a project, and he gave me the thumbs up. I can already see it's going to keep me busy for the next few months. Last night I spent about an hour, and didn't get very far. I am not adding every scripture referenced in the talk, only those that are expanded to some degree in the text, which means that I have to read the talks pretty carefully. I also had to go back and edit my entries after I determined I was formatting the citation incorrectly. (You know, correct use of italics, abbr., etc...) BTW, do you know what ff. means--footnotes?? --John 03:10, 10 February 2007 (CET)

Seems like you've got a great excuse to read conference talks! I think "ff" means fortissimo meaning "really loud." Just kidding, it means "(and the) following", though I have no idea why there are two ff's (and I don't think there is a period in this abbreviation). Also, I'm not sure I really use it with correct syntax.... --RobertC 03:25, 10 February 2007 (CET)


Hey, if you're around can you check your e-mail? I need some help with a blog post. thanks, --Matthew Faulconer 06:37, 15 February 2007 (CET)


Hey Robert, Is the Greek in the lexical notes on 2 Thes 2:1-5 messed up for you? I'm seeing block squares. Do you know how to fix it (I don't)? --Matthew Faulconer 05:53, 11 July 2007 (CEST)

It actually looks OK on my computer, but I installed some Greek fonts a while ago (through Crosswalk's site I think it was). I actually copied the Greek letters only because I wasn't sure how to transliterate this. Generally, I think it's better to just transliterate here to avoid problems and potential problems like this (seems there will always be browsers that struggle with whatever font we choose...), so I went ahead and guessed (though I tried to double check it with the Blue Letter Bible site!). --RobertC 06:56, 11 July 2007 (CEST)

Portuguese version[edit]

Hi RobertC,

I'm a brasilian user to and projects.

I've knew FATW just now (someone talk about this project at MormonWiki-EN).

There is a Portugese version to FATW project?

If there is not, who can create it? Whatever, we can create a subproject here, making a page like that:

1st option:

2nd option:

The expression "Portuguese version" may be changed for only "pt", subpage of the english page:

3th option:

(creating a NAMESPACE: Portuguese:), doing:

What do you think?

(excuse me for my bad English)


Franklin Kerber (talk) 17:48, 8 December 2008 (CET)

It's so much more easy for me to know you send me a message if you respond in my talk page... (I'm moving your respond text to there place).
If the problem is only now how to do it, I can help, but if the problem is host it, I can't. :(
Maybe I will create a sub-project at MormonWiki, or maybe something at Wikia (Wikia has so many rules about what is legal to put in that, I'm afraid I can't do it there).
One more thing. I can't confirm my e-mail. I ask for that at Special:Confirmemail but I did not receved a e-mail to do it. If you can, help me in this too.
Thank you,

Email confirmation[edit]

I try it again today and it works. I guess the automatic emails was considered spam in Hotmail and it was moved to spam folder there. Thanks. Franklin Kerber (talk) 12:30, 29 December 2008 (CET)


Hi Robert,

Thanks for your help with my posting in 2 Cor. 3. Let me know if you think any of my speculations, like the one I made about letters of refrence confusion being a foreshadowing of the apostasy, are too farfetched. I've not done a lot of reading on the subject.
