Hi Olivier! It's really good to see some activity here. Thanks for your work. Welcome, and see you in the wiki! --JohnBeckett 01:20, 22 July 2007 (UTC)


Another welcome from me. Great to see more people dropping in. Spread the word on #vim. I read your Forum entry, but I would like to move such discussions to the mailing list. There everyone can participate. The Wiki-Forum is not likely to be checked by everyone ... More details in the Community Portal. Best regards, bastl 08:33, 23 July 2007 (UTC)


I'm really pleased to see that you have put {{Delete}} on two tips (and all the other good things you've done). However, I think that normal wiki procedure would be to not mark a request for deletion as "minor". It's true that you only made a small change, but the effect is not minor. A minor edit means that other people don't need to look at what you've done because you've only corrected a typo, or fixed some obviously broken wiki syntax.

I am not complaining! I just thought you might like to know. I totally agree that the two tips you flagged should be deleted. BTW I saw your deletions when I flagged three spam messages for deletion. --JohnBeckett 09:20, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the information John, you are right to tell me because I don't have much experience with wikis. I was thinking that a change can be flagged as minor if the summary is enough to know exactly what happened without opening it (which was the case, same when I add a category)...

Hum... Maybe I should have written this to your talk page instead? Ipkiss 19:51, 23 July 2007 (UTC)
I'm doing a bit of catch-up. I'm new to this wiki stuff, but I think there is no consensus about whether you should reply here or on my talk page. I have seen it done both ways. Your way (all replies on the page where a topic started) looks best to me. If something was important and I didn't get a reply soon, I might post a "please look at..." message in the other person's talk page.
For a real eye-opener, see how a pro works by viewing http://www.wikia.com/wiki/User:Angela and scan the talk. --JohnBeckett 09:30, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

Those meta tips are very cool. Already thought about something similar. Wikis have so many options to do useful things ... bastl 06:43, 9 August 2007 (UTC)


I finally used your tip about editing tips in Vim, and it is an awesome one. I think it might be a good idea to put it somewhere more accessible...like a help page or an actual tip (under the Integration category methinks). It seems to me that a lot of people using this wiki would like to know how to do this! In addition, I found the following a very useful addition to the wikipedia syntax file (I added it to my syntax/after directory):

" add Vim syntax highlighting to <pre> sections
let s:current_syntax=b:current_syntax
unlet b:current_syntax
syntax include @VimL syntax/vim.vim
syntax include @VimL after/syntax/vim.vim "<-- doesn't work, but I can't figure out how to fix it :-(
syntax region vimSnip matchgroup=htmlTag start="<pre>" end="</pre>" contains=@VimL
let b:current_syntax=s:current_syntax

I figured I'd let you add it, since it's on one of your user pages rather than just another tip...

Thanks, this is a nice improvement! I added it to the "meta tips" page, but you shouldn't be afraid of editing the page yourself!
The reason why it is a user page and not a normal tip is that I don't think it is useful to normal Vim users: it was only intended for (Wikia) wiki edition, and even for this particular wiki :)
Note that I removed one line from your script, because you indicated it doesn't work (did you try using a different identifier for the second include?), and because I don't think many people have a after/syntax/vim.vim file. Feel free to put the line back there...
