Multiple accounts per person?

What does it mean in the user creation log when one account creates another account? How do they do that? Why do we allow that? Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif15:08 10-Mar-20

You can create an account whether or not you're logged in to another one. I think Wikia disallows logged-in users from creating accounts, but they have their own login system that replaces MediaWiki, so I don't know what's going on internally. It could probably be done with user permissions. ❦ Llwy-ar-lawr talkcontribs • 16:21 10 March 2020

Green Potato

You know, I thought it was green because the world has gone 'viral'. Then I remembered, St. Patrick's Day. Doh!Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 11:00, 18 March 2020 (UTC)

My thumb is green, do you think I should ring the doctor? Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif11:04 18-Mar-20

Radiohead

User wants his deleted version back, at User talk:Romartus. I see two deletions but I can't get to the deleted edits with the delete button. Are we missing history of this article? Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif20:42 27-Mar-20

There's no "undelete" link for an existing page. On the delete form there should be a deletion log with "view/restore" links, or if you click on the history tab, you'll see "View or restore 326 deleted edits?". Or just go to Special:Undelete/Radiohead. I see multiple edits from YouFang, so it looks like it's all there. ❦ Llwy-ar-lawr talkcontribs • 21:08 27 March 2020

I hit the delete button and was told there were 60-odd edits, but all these were of the current incarnation. I'll follow your recommendation and see if I can find it. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif22:22 27-Mar-20

Okay, I see it. The intro suggests that the function of this page is to add edits to the history of the existing page. In contrast, what I want to do is restore the entire edit history, except the most recent 3 edits, which were a different incarnation, as a new article Paranoid Android. If I thought it would give me a helpful prompt, File exists, Overwrite/Rename/Cancel? then I'd go ahead. Considered temporarily renaming Radiohead but that probably wouldn't fool it. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif22:31 27-Mar-20

If you move the current page to a different title, this will leave the deleted edits behind at the old title. You can then restore them as effectively a different article. The checkboxes can be used to restore only certain edits. ❦ Llwy-ar-lawr talkcontribs • 23:37 27 March 2020

Done, thanks. 00:03 28-Mar-20 Ah, yes, the pix, thanks again. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif00:54 28-Mar-20

Acetone

Are you going to take this any farther? Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif23:31 3-Apr-20

In theory, but at the moment I'm out of ideas and supposed to be doing homework. I've moved it to my userspace. ❦ Llwy-ar-lawr talkcontribs • 04:17 4 April 2020
