I'm working on modernizing Rosetta Code's infrastructure. Starting with communications. Please accept this time-limited open invite to RC's Slack.. --Michael Mol (talk) 20:59, 30 May 2020 (UTC)

From Rosetta Code

Welcome to Rosetta Code! I'm Mike, and I noticed you created an account.

Some quick things you should be aware of:

Template:Mylang Helps you show what languages you're familiar with, and helps us become aware of skills with languages we haven't seen.
Category:Unimplemented tasks by language A place to find tasks missing solutions in various languages.
Blogs, twitter, facebook... We have them, and are interested in yours.
Special:Webchat Logs you into #rosettacode on the Freenode IRC channel. Not usually the most active communications medium, but occasionally helpful. It's logged at http://irclog.perlgeek.de/rosettacode/today.
Rosetta Code:Village Pump A general Q/A and discussion area.
Rosetta Code:Finances For most of Rosetta Code's history, expenses have been paid out of my pocket. I can't afford that much longer, and so you can see the state of Rosetta Code's finances, and how you may help. If you enjoy or are excited about the site, please consider reading through it.

Sorry for the boilerplate; it can be a bit difficult giving an individual greeting to each person. If you post information about your technical interests and background, I'll probably read it. If you already have put that kind of information on your user page, I probably already have; I'm always interested in how people do and can benefit from Rosetta Code.

Thanks for all the D code and improvements. You might find Reports:Tasks not implemented in D interesting. --Michael Mol 02:48, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

Java last Fridays locale[edit]

What country are you in that "March" is abbreviated "mrt"? I think it would be useful to note which locale you're running that in. A solid 75% of visitors to the site in the last year had their browsers set to en-us, en, or en-gb. They might get a little confused when things don't come out in English. --Mwn3d 20:35, 11 August 2012 (UTC)

Mike:     I've written a generalized   date   (and calendar)   function which supports 99 different languages for the months and days-of-the-week.   I just checked and found that 22 countries out of 99 have the month of   March   spelled as   Maart,   or   Mart,   or   Mart****.   I don't know what the abbreviations are for months in those countries, but I suspect it may be   Mrt   or   mrt.   I could list the 22 countries if you are interested.   -- Gerard Schildberger (talk) 21:34, 12 July 2016 (UTC)

Dealing with spam[edit]

Don't remove spam links; flag them for deletion with {{remove}}. (We'll also crush the spammer while we're at it.) –Donal Fellows (talk) 10:17, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

In the meantime the links will remain active. Wouldn't it be better to do both? Fwend (talk) 10:20, 14 April 2013 (UTC)
I am in favour of users who don't have deletion rights flagging pages for deletion and removing the link at the same time to deny the spammer as much as possible, as soon as possible. Just my view. --Paddy3118 (talk) 07:17, 26 May 2013 (UTC)
P.S. Sorry about you being blocked by mistake. I didn't do it, but the apology is because I nearly did and can see that we have to be vigilant. --Paddy3118 (talk) 07:17, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

Railroad circuit[edit]

Discussion page created. :-) --G.Brougnard (talk) 08:38, 5 April 2016 (UTC)

Incorrect incorrect templates[edit]

Please put the incorrect template inside the section of the incorrect solution. Here you put them in the section for the language above. Eoraptor (talk) 18:17, 3 December 2017 (UTC)

Data File for Text processing/1[edit]

Hi, you mentioned back in December 2016 that you still had a copy of the data file used for the Text processing/1 task. (On the discussion page) Do you still have a copy? Would it possible for you to email me a copy? If so I'll put it up in an online accessible place. Thanks --Thundergnat (talk) 18:33, 3 April 2018 (UTC)

Nevermind. I found a copy in an old system backup. Put mirror up on github. Cheers! --Thundergnat (talk) 21:27, 3 April 2018 (UTC)

You didn't receive the copy I sent? Fwend (talk) 02:16, 4 April 2018 (UTC)
Doh! I DID receive it. Thanks. I didn't expect you to respond so quickly. It occurred to me to check my old system backups right after I originally posted and found a copy there. Thanks for sending it though, it makes it more certain that the file I found is the original, unmodified file.--Thundergnat (talk) 11:16, 4 April 2018 (UTC)
