Hi Cedh! I don't know how to replace "Affanon" with "Affalinnei" in the map (see Affalinnei). Can you help, please? --Basilius 01:48, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

I changed the text in my PSD file. -- Cedh 07:31, 13 June 2009 (UTC)
Thank you! --Basilius 12:10, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Just wanted to say "thanks" for your eagle-eyed copyediting :) thedukeofnuke (talk) 03:19, 8 July 2014 (PDT)

Cedh, the Conlanging God, what happened to the skin? The Devilcat (talk) 16:19, 9 July 2014 (PDT)

MediaWiki has been upgraded to version 1.23, but the skin was made for 1.19 and is not compatible with the newer version without some adjustments. I'll adapt it soon enough. -- Cedh (talk) 16:39, 9 July 2014 (PDT)

request for a variation in gloss styling

Hi, Cedh, in my little writeup User:4pq1injbok/DLNAF it would be convenient to use your gloss templates. But I've been using italics, not bold, for citation, and don't want to go through and change all that; I'd like the gloss template to yield italic first line and Roman final line. Is that something you'd stoop to allowing into the CSS? 4pq1injbok (talk) 15:02, 28 January 2015 (PST)

That's certainly possible, and not too difficult to do. However, it's been an established practice here that conlang examples usually appear in boldface, so I'm hesitant to add a new template for italic glosses (and I'm not willing to change the behavior of the existing template). If it's just the additional work that's keeping you from going through and change everything, that can easily be automated: Just copypaste into a text editor, replace all '' with ''', and then all '''' with ''', and copy back into the wiki. If you're set on using italics though, tell me and I'll create a template for that. -- Cedh (talk) 11:34, 29 January 2015 (PST)
Has that been the practice? That's too loud for my tastes; I prefer to use bold sparingly, e.g. for keywords which the reader might want to pick out on scanning. At any rate, if you do implement this (an optional argument of the extant template?), great; if not, the table method isn't actually that painful.
(And really, this problem would be solved in a stroke if it was possible to put CSS style declarations in the page content. But MediaWiki has no truck with that.) 4pq1injbok (talk) 13:43, 29 January 2015 (PST)
Well, I personally prefer bold for exactly that reason: it makes conlang words within a paragraph stand out really well, and the same effect helps in glosses too IMO. But anyway, I've created new templates Template:Gli and Template:Glendi; if you use these, you'll get a gloss that's formatted as you like it. -- Cedh (talk) 14:03, 29 January 2015 (PST)
Thanks! Best friendship takes place! 4pq1injbok (talk) 01:40, 30 January 2015 (PST)
