== <s>Could you add linux-uksm-ck in your source?</s> ==
Hi. You accidentally removed most of the content on the [[Beginners' Guide/Installation]] with [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=Beginners%27_Guide%2FInstallation&action=historysubmit&diff=148104&oldid=146869 these changes] so I rolled it back. I was going to replace the old section on the page with yours, but I realized that the core install CD will still have to use the old rc.conf syntax before being updated. I kept your replacement section at [[Talk:Beginners' Guide/Installation]] for now (where we can figure out what to do). Not sure what a proper solution is, since the netinstall will have the new syntax (I think). [[User:Thestinger|thestinger]] 01:09, 4 July 2011 (EDT)
:Hey. Was no accident.  Good point about the ISO not reflecting the changes though.  On the other hand, as soon as the user updates the system, these new changes will be affecting the system.  Perhaps best to leave the new info in the guide with a note about a first update?
::Please discuss that at [[Talk:Beginners' Guide/Installation]]. -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] 05:32, 5 July 2011 (EDT)
:How do you get the date/time stamp on the wiki again?
::You mean the signature, like '[[User:Thestinger|thestinger]] 01:09, 4 July 2011 (EDT)'? [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/ArchWiki_Cheatsheet Use '<nowiki>~~~~</nowiki>' (four tildas)] -- [[User:Karol|Karol]] 17:45, 4 July 2011 (EDT)
==<s>Modprobed_db typo</s>==
The wiki does care if it's [[Modprobed_db]] or [[Modprobed-db]] - the latter page does not exist. I noticed this typo in your 'Favorite Wiki Pages to Which I Have Contributed' list. -- [[User:Karol|Karol]] 21:04, 31 December 2011 (EST)
===<s>Re: Modprobed_db typo</s>===
Good eye for detail.  Fixed and thanks -- [[User:Graysky|Graysky]] 08:24, 1 January 2012 (EST)
==<s>Command prompts</s>==
Hey, I've just undone [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=Pacman&diff=next&oldid=179383 this edit] since it breaks style consistency: I think that we must make such choices globally, and not arbitrarily having some code with prompts and some other without. The current [[Help:Style|style guidelines]] mention the use of prompts, so this problem should be discussed in [[Help talk:Style]] first, agreed? :) -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] 12:14, 22 January 2012 (EST)
==<s>Re: Command prompts</s>==
Cool with me.  I'll consider a discussion at [[Help:Style|style guidelines]] -- [[User:Graysky|Graysky]] 12:25, 22 January 2012 (EST)
==<s>Edit summary</s>==
It's me again :) I appreciate what you're doing on the wiki, but, as you're one of the most active contributors, I'd like to ask you to use the Summary field in editor pages, just above the Save page button, to explain the ''what'' and ''why'' of your edits, since there are users like me who patrol the recent changes, and it's much more difficult and time consuming to check an unexplained edit than an explained one. See also [[Help:Style#Edit summary]]. Thank you for collaborating and for contributing! -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] 05:05, 10 February 2012 (EST)
EDIT: Well, you can make an exception for [[Linux-ck]], since you're practically the only maintainer of the article. -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] 05:07, 10 February 2012 (EST)
You got it.  Thank you for all the time that you put into making the wiki consistent :).-- [[User:Graysky|Graysky]] 05:22, 10 February 2012 (EST)
==<s>Explanation request :)</s>==
...I know I'm annoying :) but can you answer [[ArchWiki:Reports#btrfs stable?]] and [[ArchWiki:Reports#/usr/lib/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf]]? Thanks -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] 17:26, 14 April 2012 (EDT)
No problem.  Karol contacted me by email.  I have responded on the reports page.  Thx.  [[User:Graysky|Graysky]] 18:21, 14 April 2012 (EDT)

:My bad.  Fixed[[User:Graysky|Graysky]] 19:22, 22 April 2012 (EDT)
::I don't know - you've changed it to 'vx'. I've never heard of vx before, but I have heard of xv (even though it isn't in my list). Anyhow, this is in the section about enabling VDPAU, and I don't see how adding xv helps with that, when the line already ends with a comma. Is vx in the Nvidia documentation somewhere? [[User:Smarthound|Smarthound]] 19:30, 22 April 2012 (EDT)
::: Wow, I got that ass-backwards.  It's actually xv which is the X11/Xv which should be the fallback method should none of the vdpau drivers work on the target video.  [[User:Graysky|Graysky]] 19:39, 22 April 2012 (EDT)

Could you add linux-uksm-ck in your source?
