That is strange. The time stamp is showing.
Check your "Preferences" -- you can modify your signature there on that first page.
If you modify your signature and save it, and that doesn't display, then we have a bug -- the Media Wiki engine was just updated, so that is quite possible.

  • Try this -- simply change the signiture field to something else -- like your cat's name. Save it and see what happens.

I've left a note for LOTROadmin to look into the problem.

Mumble

Basically, Mumble is a voice-chat server. Visit: Mumble for all the gory details.
Historically, this Wiki (as befitting its age -- started back in 2006; and the fact that the founders were European based) has always relied upon IRC to hold conversations between Editors. Editors being the generic term for folks manipulating content on a Wiki.
My Guild (Kinship on LOTRO) is The Old Timers Guild, we were founded back in 2005 when a number of us D&D players got involved with the beta of DDO by Turbine. We have since expanded to encompass many different MMOs. The Guild has always had a "Voice Chat" server -- originally we used Vent, but when Mumble "matured," being Open Source, we got around to switching. Now, any one of our Guild members (and we have around 1000 in LOTRO alone) can chat with any other gild member on/about any game platform.
In addition to general chatting, we also use it in-game as it is much superior in performance and "adjustability" to the (formerly Game-Spy) in-game voice used by Turbine. (The in-game chat is limited to one fellowship of six players.) So for events where there are more than six players (like a 12 person raid) or a general fiasco, like Hobnanagans, we can all chat and laugh together.
In the past 2 or 3 years, there has been very little use of the IRC, and I had LOTROAdmin install a Mumble server to see if that would interest folks. But it hasn't. Consequently, we simply use the Talk pages to communicate - one on one.
Hope that helps. Please feel free to ask for help if you want to setup a Mumble client to give it a trial spin.
I should add that a Mumble server requires that some sort of "common bond" exist between its users as it is password protected.

Ah, thank you. I don't think I should use Mumble though, XD, my parents have lots of online rules. 22:59, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

Two questions on your signature

If you haven't noticed, your signature is missing your username, so i'm curious if this was caused by a recent update or not... So the two questions :) 1) you made any changes to your signature preferences; and 2) if you default your 'user profile' page under preferences if that returns your name to your signature. Thanks in advance and sorry to be a pain ;) --Lotroadmin (talk) 23:38, 7 June 2014 (UTC)


I changed it a few times, but didn't to default.

  • On your preferences page: What shows in the block: "Existing Signature" ?
  • Try this...
  1. Select the box "New Signature"
  2. type Cmd-A (to select the contents of entire box" -- everything in the box should turn blue
  3. press backspace -- the contents of the box should "blank"
  4. Type 2 or 3 characters (XXX)
  5. click save.


  • What now shows in the block: "Existing Signature" ?
  • If XXX does not show, then try:
  • click "Restore all default settings (in all sections)
  • click save
  • click log-out in the upper right corner.
Note that you will have to re-enter your email address and Real Name fields.
I forget if you will have to reset your password or not.
  • Log back in again, and see what shows now in the "Existing Signature" block.

what is Cmd-A? sorry, I have an ASUS 17:37, 10 June 2014 (UTC) XD I think I know what it happening... let me try this

XXX (talk) 17:38, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

oops, I was putting five things. XD

  • It looks like your sig is now working correctly. (Go back and change "XX" to "KonaCoffee"
  • Yours is the first ASUS system I have encountered. What Operating system are you running? Microsoft? Linux? ???
The "Cmd-A" reference is actually Operating System dependent. It is a "command line" short-cut which means "select all"
The "Cmd" key is usually the first key immediately to the left of the space bar; but that is Keyboard dependent as well as OS dependent!
It might be called "Alt" -- but if it does select-all is and OS function.

Mine is Microsoft, and yes, it is ALT. KONACOFFEE☕ (talk) 22:32, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

Tips on Wiki editing

  • And always, refer to this for useful information.
Wm Magill - Valamar - OTG/OTC - talk 19:11, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

A couple of tips on Talk Page etiquette

  1. learn to use INDENTS.
    • A colon (:) as the first character of a line will cause that line to indent. Multiple colons can be used together, each one increasing the indention.
    • An Asterisk (*) as the first character of a line will cause a "dot" and an indent.
    • A "pound sign" (#) as the first character of a line will begin a numbered list. (This can be tricky to use as it is dependent upon certain HTML codes which do not really exist in the Wiki coding language and therefore "don't work right." You can always refer to http://www.mediawiki.org
  2. When replying to some posting on a Talk page, indent your reply so that it can be distinguished from the previous posting.
  3. Always remember to "sign" your posting with four (4) tildes: ~~~~
  4. It is always better to use "Add Topic" (at the top of the page) to s6tart a new thread, than simply "adding-on" to existing text.
  • Have fun editing! Wm Magill - Valamar - OTG/OTC - talk 19:28, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
