Thank you!

I am glad to be here among friends. I will try to help as long as time allows me. --JMartinezR 00:29, 2 January 2010 (EST)


salaam, the parser function has been installed for some time, maybe i can help with the problem WikiSysop 20:50, 2 January 2010 (EST)

Al-Aqsa Mosque

Salam.

I found MuslimWiki searching for "Al-Aqsa Mosque". I hope to help in this important mission. --JMartinezR 10:55, 4 January 2010 (EST)

First word template

Continuing discussion from [1] (I suppose you are 72.241.13.250 from Wikipedia)

I looked at it here and the parser function {{#iferror}} doesn't work. I could work around that, but the magic word {{padright:}} works differently than on Wikipedia and I don't know how to fix that. My guess is that this is because this wiki apparently runs on an ancient version of MediaWiki (from 2007). Svick 16:21, 5 January 2010 (EST)

I haven't set up the wiki, so I wouldn't happen to know what version of MediaWiki this wiki is running on. You'll have to ask User:WikiSysop about that. So what you are saying is that the only solution is to update the version of MediaWiki? Thanks. --Unknown 16:26, 5 January 2010 (EST)
Yes, that's the only thing I can think of that could help. Svick 16:33, 5 January 2010 (EST)
Alright, thanks for all the help. --Unknown 17:29, 5 January 2010 (EST)

Islamic links

Thank you. I am sure you know better than I about this sites. It is good to have help. Salam. --JMartinezR 21:55, 10 January 2010 (EST)

No problem. It's also great to have someone else to help with the wiki. I just wish the wiki would receive more hits and activity. --Unknown 15:44, 11 January 2010 (EST)

Main page date

did a search for "Expression error: Unrecognised punctuation character "{"" in google there are a few pages that come up. have you tested it with values? WikiSysop 21:52, 3 January 2010 (EST)

There are some difficulties in upgrading at the mo because of some additions such as the hijra date WikiSysop 19:55, 4 January 2010 (EST)

Yeah, i thought i had the main page on lockdown :-) WikiSysop 19:56, 4 January 2010 (EST) have used a few bits of peices from wikipedia, including some articles that seemed ok, making minor adjustments. Just wanted to add some meat to some empty articles. But yes you are right, it is a dangerous path, as we discussed before. Will limit what i take from there WikiSysop 21:52, 5 January 2010 (EST)

Not sure why date is out of sync, tried localday but to no avail http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual_talk:Timezone WikiSysop 22:37, 8 January 2010 (EST)

Maybe User:Engineer can help? (If you type in the actual date manually, the date comes up correct. I don't know why using 'magic words' messes it up.) --Unknown 22:41, 8 January 2010 (EST)

Daily Hadith

Yes, to make it easier on the editor , it would be best if there was just a set number of hadiths, and to pull from them.

Also it may be worth looking at having a small section that shows the headlines for a particular day, such as 7th sept or a hijri day so the 7th would have a small box like On this Day

  • Khalid Bin walid takes jerusalum
  • Mehmed II becomes sultan of the ottoman empire
I think it is necessary and convenient; don't forget the images, you have many of mosques around the world; images give a colorful and nice representation of the site. --JMartinezR 09:42, 13 January 2010 (EST)


Simple answer is that it needs a core set of contributers.WikiSysop 02:36, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

Response

Please check the response I left here. I can contribute to articles here and have vast experience on editing the normal wikipedia. Islamic Warrior 20:54, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

New Article on Islamophobia

Hello there. I recently created an article about that notorious website WikiIslam. I copied and pasted it from Wikipedia. A user was actually working on it and its been up to 2 days now. I have a feeling it will be deleted very soon on Wikipedia, but I've nabbed it just in time. Please let me know what you think of it. Also please can I be granted admin status? I'm really passionate about making this Wiki more popular than WikiIslam is. If the WikiIslam developers get whiff of this site I'm afraid they will try and ruin it by screwing it up. I've made lots of templates and I want to be able to give them protection status, the same goes for my articles. Islamic Warrior 18:11, 26 January 2012 (UTC)

Salam. I don't think I have the ability to grant you admin status. However, I am sure that WikiSysop will do so after he feels ready. I haven't been very active on here for quite some time because I have been somewhat busy. I'm really glad that you are willing to help out here. If you need me to protect a template or anything else, just send me an email by clicking "e-mail this user" on the left. Jazak Allahu khayran --Unknown 04:59, 29 January 2012 (UTC)
Salams. Thank you for responding. Currently I'd just like to protect that WikiIslam article because trolls on Wikipedia managed to get it deleted on Wikipedia. I don't how they managed to do it considering it had good references but if they find the article on this wiki they'll try to vandalise it. Can you protect the article and feature it on the front page please? Also how do I contact WikiSysop by email? He's not responding on his talk page. Islamic Warrior 19:31, 29 January 2012 (UTC)
I'd prefer not to protect the page so that way it can be edited in the future by other users. If someone tries to vandalize it, it can be reverted back. You could probably contact WikiSysop by going to his user page and clicking "e-mail this user" on the left column. --Unknown 03:51, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
Thank you, I've emailed him. And yes, those edits can be reverted if they are vandalised. I think I keep mistaking this wiki for Wikipedia where there are more rules and its harder to revert stuff without trying to change the other persons mind on the subject that he/she is wrong. Ah well nevermind that. Islamic Warrior 20:44, 30 January 2012 (UTC)

draft

This is an extension that is installed. each article has a revision section available to sysops where they can designate the article as accurate, basic, readable etc. Before an article is defined it is draft status.

Miscellaneous

I was thinking about the dumping of articles, and think i will try and set up an islamic version of http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Main_Page . We can then dump all the free literature on Islam, books and essays WikiSysop 11:49, 17 February 2007 (GMT)

It sounds like a good idea, but I think you should wait until MuslimWikipedia becomes more popular. :) Unknown 12:13, 17 February 2007 (GMT)

we will be moving to the new site soon inshallah, and there will be authenticated login, which will make our task of looking after the site just a tad easier WikiSysop 19:41, 14 April 2007 (BST)

I haven't removed your changes again, just removed the revision list and tidyd up the vandalism WikiSysop 23:16, 14 April 2007 (BST)

Feedback: Islam in Japan

Hi, could I get some feedback on this article please? I've spent the better part of 6 hours trying to research all about it. Please tell me what you think. Here is the old version and here is the new version. Salaam. Islamic Warrior 05:25, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

I think it looks pretty good. I haven't managed to read it entirely, but, after giving it a quick glance, it looks good. --Unknown 22:24, 10 February 2012 (UTC)
Thanks that's just the response I was looking for. Although when you do have the time please do read it. Salaam. Islamic Warrior 00:49, 11 February 2012 (UTC)

I like it too WikiSysop 16:19, 19 May 2012 (BST)

Unlocking Pages

Could you possibly please unlock the templates that are used on the mainpage so I can edit them? One of them was unlocked and I edited it to make it look more welcoming. Could you please let me do the same to the others? The others are Template:MainTagCloud and Template:featured. I would be grateful if you could unlock these. Islamic Warrior 00:39, 1 May 2012 (BST)

Could you get to me about this please? Islamic Warrior 02:42, 12 May 2012 (BST)
Salam. I unlocked them. --Unknown 20:59, 18 May 2012 (BST)
Thank you! Islamic Warrior 23:26, 18 May 2012 (BST)

Would it be actually possible to unlock the homepage so I can edit that please? Islamic Warrior 23:33, 18 May 2012 (BST)


salaam if you need changes made to templates you can email admin at the site, aslo no changes to the front page layout , other than different featured articles, which again you can recommend to be added. WikiSysop 16:19, 19 May 2012 (BST)
