Source of confusion

The Sources of confusion section has this confusing sentence: ”However, if a player believes that sticking and switching are equally successful and therefore randomizes their strategy, they should, in fact, win 50% of the time, reinforcing their original belief.” It could be just due to English not being my native language, but I read that as going against the entire point of the paradox: that the player somehow suddenly has the intuitive 50/50 odds of winning at their last choice, should they simply choose to believe it so. I suggest that this be mended or expanded to better express whatever it is that it’s supposed to mean.

Edit request on 26 November 2012: Bitcoind/Bitcoin-Qt

Sijainti: Wikit: Wikipedia
Avainsanat: Bitcoin

#Mining_and_node_operation currently links to Bitcoind/Bitcoin-Qt, which just redirects back to this article. Bitcoind is the previous name of Bitcoin-Qt (according to that article), so the Bitcoind/Bitcoin-Qt redirection page should point there (or be removed), and the link in this article should just be [[Bitcoin-Qt]]

[[Malline:Verkkoviite]]

1. marraskuuta 2012 klo 18.31
Sijainti: Wikit: Wikipedia

Tämä Verkkoviite-mallineen muokkaus taisi rikkoa kieli-parametrin: mallineen ohjeesta kopioituna, pienellä kirjoitettuna se tuottaa ylimääräisen {{{Kieli}}}-köntsän siihen kielen edelle. Näkyy esimerkiksi tämän kappaleen viitteessä 7. Uskon löytäneeni viallisen kohdan mallineen koodissa ( {{{Kieli}}} → {{{Kieli|}}}?), mutta tuo on sen verran laajalti käytetty malline, että ajattelin paremmaksi pyytää sinua, kun ilmeisesti nämä MW:n sulkeishärdellit kuuluvat osaamisalaasi.

”Official” renditions, trademarked?

7. lokakuuta 2012 klo 18.36
Sijainti: Wikit: Wikipedia
Avainsanat: tekijänoikeus

The article’s Copyright section currently says ”copyright of the official BSD daemon images is held by Marshall Kirk McKusick” (emphasis mine). According to freebsd.org however, use of ”the likeliness of the BSD Daemons for profitable gain requires the consent of Brian Tao […] and Marshall Kirk McKusick” (emphasis mine). Does anyone know if the daemon is also trademarked? Would that make the ASCII art rendition further down in the article also non-free? And if not, would that in turn mean File:Bsd_daemon.jpg(currently accompanying the article) is replaceable by, for example, Poul-Henning Kamp’s rendition, which is Beerware?

Translating ”intro” pages

26. syyskuuta 2012 klo 11.24
Sijainti: Wikit: Wikispecies

Wikispecies:Done and to do currently lists ”Translate intro pages into other languages” as #18. I’d like to participate, but I’ve not found enough documentation to feel sure enough to start. Does ”intro” here refer to the help: namespace? I see Help:Contents has a couple of translations (fr and hu), but I’m thinking of starting with Help:General Wikispecies, as that’s more specific (sorry) to Wikispecies, whereas Help:Contents is of general MW usage that’s already documented in Finnish elsewhere (not that it wouldn’t benefit from a translated page here too). Is it okay if I just create Help:General Wikispecies/Fi and link to it from the parent page with a box similar to that on Help:Contents?

#redirect with support for templates, magic words or conditionals

Avainsanat: MediaWiki, turvallisuus

I learned that hard #redirect does not support templates, magic words or being wrapped inside conditionals. I’d find any of those features useful in my own wiki, so my questions are:

  1. Are the limitations based on technical difficulties of implementation, or are they design decisions based on security implications?
  2. Would it be possible to implement support for said features in an extension, or better yet, are there known extensions to do this?

The wiki that I’m running is limited to my own personal use, so I wouldn’t have to worry about security implications for multiuser MW installations.

This is my first creation using Inkscape and the first SVG I’ve created, period. I’m quite pleased with it, but also sure it can be better. Feel free to suggest improvements or improve it yourself!
