Thanks, Mike, for all your contributions to the site--online and off! Jodi.a.schneider 00:25, 7 October 2009 (UTC)

Summaries wanted

That's such a brilliant aspect of AcaWiki that it should be its own siebar link with a dedicated form/template/extension written to make it simple to use.

This is something we could easily ask everyone to fill ou - a few quick requests for summaries; with and without bounties. The bounties could be fun things like "I will find and upload X in exchange" (where X could be summaries of great PD or free papers, to be thematic), or donations to an AcaWiki fund, or amazon giftcards...

Hi! I meant to check in . . . .

Yes, hello! Thank you for welcoming people to the site. I meant to say hello. I am a Wikimedia-DC person, along with other things, and a group is trying to make a system for tracking scientific refutations and disputes. . . . as you may see. If you are coming to an upcoming WikiConference or Wikimania or WikiSym, it would be good to talk about it. AcaWiki is a good platform for us to try it on and perhaps to keep it on. We want to connect somehow to the mega list of academic works that is or will be on Wikidata. -- Pbmeyer (talk) 04:38, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

Request to delete

Hi Mike. I spotted some spam, but I can't delete the page since I'm not an administrator (or maybe I just don't know how). A_few_details_on_how_to_opt_a_established_medical_billing_company Charmonium (talk) 10:15, 19 February 2021 (UTC)

Thanks, deleted! I haven't looked into permissions in a long time ... delete would be under "more" to the right of watchlist/star and to the left of the search box, if you're able. Happy to look again and recall how to grant permissions if you see other stuff that you'd like to help with but aren't allowed to. Mike Linksvayer (talk) 23:49, 19 February 2021 (UTC)

Math mode

Hello, Mike! Thanks for this site. I plan on uploading my whole qual exam notes, and nudging my friends to do so as well.

However, some of my notes contain mathematical formulae. Is there any chance we could get Wikimedia's Math extension? Charmonium (talk) 07:35, 26 February 2021 (UTC)

That's great, and I don't see why I couldn't install it. Let me see if I can get to it over the weekend. Will update here. Mike Linksvayer (talk) 01:11, 27 February 2021 (UTC)
I need to do some long-overdue upgrades before installing the Math extension, which I'm partway through. Possibility of some downtime while I complete. Mike Linksvayer (talk) 03:07, 28 February 2021 (UTC)
Charmonium I've installed the extension. Mike Linksvayer (talk) 02:32, 1 March 2021 (UTC)
Thanks! It looks great!! Charmonium (talk) 05:14, 1 March 2021 (UTC)
@Charmonium: That's awesome that you're uploading your exam notes. I did the same when I did my exams. Let me know if there's anything else I can do to help! —mako 00:26, 26 June 2021 (UTC)
Thanks, Mako. Uploading my qual notes (already done) was just a start. I am hoping that we build a community that critically analyzes the publications, like post-publication open peer review. Of course this would be separated from the more objective "Summary" section. And to precipitate that community, we need great summaries!

AcaWiki doesn't work on Chrome?

Hello, Mike! Thanks again for working on this site!

I started sending AcaWiki links to people from my lab, but it seems AcaWiki doesn't work in Google Chrome (desktop or mobile). I debugged this a little, and here is what I discovered.

Can you take a look at the skins admin page? If you don't have time, I would be happy to help out. Charmonium (talk)

Wow, that's terrible. Thanks for debugging. Fixed! Mike Linksvayer (talk) 18:37, 25 April 2021 (UTC)
Works great, thanks! Charmonium (talk) 21:40, 25 April 2021 (UTC)
