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

(Though I suspect I know who you are :) )

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. --Michael Mol 01:17, 1 May 2010 (UTC)

Javascript example comparison script[edit]

See this version of the Four-bit adder task to observe a potential stylistic issue with how the TOC is being modified. For me, the C example is off on the left of the TOC, and the J tree is out in the middle, leading to a weird apparent separation. I don't have any good advice on how to fix it, though. --Michael Mol 16:56, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Hmmm...it's doing that because it reorganizes based on the root list elements (C and J, in this case) so it keeps families of sub-language topics together. Problem is, in this case, you've only got two, so it's splitting them into two columns. I suppose I could just put a limiter on there so it only splits them into columns if there will be at least three or five languages per column. Sound reasonable?
--Tyrok1 20:15, 22 June 2010 (UTC)
Sure. :) --Michael Mol 20:17, 22 June 2010 (UTC)
Jeepers, was that quick. --Tyrok1 20:23, 22 June 2010 (UTC)
I get emailed when pages I changed get changed. Which includes your talk page. :) --Michael Mol 20:34, 22 June 2010 (UTC)
There. Just changed it so each column should contain a minimum of three primary languages/language groups. Can you give that a try please and see if that works for you? --Tyrok1 14:03, 23 June 2010 (UTC)


Rather than adding "See Also" links, check out Category:Language Implementations and Template:Implementation. --Michael Mol 22:27, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, that's why I was wondering about that. I didn't want to go around creating pages willy-nilly for every unnamed language implementation I could find without really having any background information. At least without knowing that's how you're supposed to do it.  :) --Tyrok1 00:39, 26 June 2010 (UTC)
I just changed over the Applesoft BASIC implementation link to an entire page. Did I do that correctly? If so, I can correct the other ones I added earlier. --Tyrok1 01:20, 26 June 2010 (UTC)
