== Categories on redirect pages ==
+
== User permissions - could I be 'autoconfirmed'? ==
 
 
I just noticed that the software upgrade has led to [[:Category:List of Shader Parameters#mw-pages|redirect pages appearing in categories]]. This is "correct" behaviour insofar as they do have <nowiki>[[Category:X]]</nowiki> in them, but bad because it's spamming up the list with unimportant entries. I'd like to see them hidden again...what do you think? --[[user:TomEdwards|TomEdwards]] 19:23, 25 January 2009 (UTC)
 
: Interesting, I had not noticed this, but it makes sense. This is more of a new feature than a bug since the redirects actually have category tags in them. The category index is similar to the index of a book, so in this particular case, I think it is appropriate that the redirect titles that are unique parameters (such as [[$basetexturenoenvmap]]) are in the category index. The redirects that are duplicates of other entries clearly added only for search purposes ([[$detail alpha mask base texture]]) should definitely not have category tags. And the remaining ones in the $ section could get category tags parameters added so they are correctly alphabetized. --[[User:JeffLane|JeffLane]] 01:05, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
 
 
 
== Bugged pages when past a certain length ==
 
 
 
On the [[List of L4D Models]] page, it goes into blank space past "props_rooftop\acvent03.mdl" (ctrl+f and paste to hop to it) for some reason - but when you edit the page you can see the content past that still exists, just for some reason the wiki isn't showing it

== Left 4 Dead: Survival ==
 
 
 
Hi Jeff, it's me again. If you don't mind me asking, what makes the game think that a certain map is survival map? I've been inspecting the Last Stand map for the last 3 hours and couldn't find anything that would indicate this. --'''[[User:Baliame|Baliame]]''' <sup>([[User talk:Baliame|talk]])</sup> 20:28, 26 April 2009 (UTC)
 
:I assume it's set with the mp_gamemode now. Before loading the map, it is set to survival. For the current maps that have survial modes on them, they have some hand-written lump which adds any Survival unique entities.  --[[User:Remmiz|Remmiz]] 21:51, 26 April 2009 (UTC)
 
::Yeah, that would explain it all, however, if gamemode is only settable prior to map start, it would be impossible, or rather dodgy to set it up in the map file only :( --'''[[User:Baliame|Baliame]]''' <sup>([[User talk:Baliame|talk]])</sup> 14:29, 28 April 2009 (UTC)
 
:::To make a Survival map all you really need to do is like maybe make a map specific config changing the gamemode, and use a panic event to start the timer. --[[User:Frostbite|&#39;&#39;JakeB&#39;&#39;]] 20:01, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

== otherlang2 ==
 
 
 
I've made a visual version of otherlang, which has been possible since Mediawiki added link= support to images. [[Template talk:Otherlang2|But there's a problem that stops it from working on translated pages]]. Can you see a solution to this from the admin side? --[[user:TomEdwards|TomEdwards]] 20:18, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

Hi there.  I took some screenshots of some basic examples of Logic Gates in Puzzle Maker for use on [[Portal 2 Puzzle Maker/Logic Gates|this page]], however I am unable to upload files as I am not in the 'autoconfirmed' user group.  Are you able to add me to the autoconfirmed user group via [[Special:UserRights]]?  [[User:RJackson|RJackson]] 09:27, 13 May 2012 (PDT)

Hi, Jeff. I was looking at improving the layout of the [[Portal 2 Puzzle Maker|Puzzle Maker]] page and a thought struck me; right now the page is basically a hub for how-to content, but wouldn't it make more sense if the how-to stuff was moved to the category index to be more consistant with the rest of the wiki?

From French Level deisgn Community
 
  
:Pls stop that. Thx. Anarkia777 PS : Jeff pls stop this user "Gectou4", he come anger, want delete all article, critic always, and he never corect. Very Thx.
+
For example, the [[Valve Hammer Editor|Hammer]] page only describes ''what'' Hammer is, along with a brief history. The actual level design how-to hub is on the [[:Category:Level Design|Level Design category index]] (and the same goes for the [[:Category:Portal 2 Level Design|Portal 2 Level Design category index]].
  
== Gectou4 complain ==
+
Right now I'm playing with layouts in [[User:Nacimota/Sandbox|my sandbox]]; after discussing it with a few people, I really think it belongs on the category index. Keeping in mind that the 'wiki' link in the actual editor links directly to the [[Portal 2 Puzzle Maker]] page, I wanted to get your position (or even [[User:YasserMalaika|Yasser's]]) before I go moving things around.
