I just thought I'd let you know that if you're ever looking for extra administrators, that I'd be up for the job. I think you can safely say that I'm a positive contributor by the number and type of my edits. DragonMage 18:53, February 26, 2011 (UTC)
- You are now an admin. For info:
I think I am interested in being an admin with at least one specific purpose in mind, to mirror some or all of the weed-related content on my web site. If Remi and/or I kick the bucket one day, it would be nice to know (in the final minutes) that at least some, if not all of our writing had a mirror somewhere. The Cannabis Wiki certainly seems compatible with existing pages focused upon cannabis prohibition. But before I bothered, I'd prefer some assurance that the wiki is not going to be abandoned in favor of another site; or if it is abandoned (I don't really care all that much) in favor of another type of system, then I'd prefer to be admin on that system, lest any additions made be lost due to the move. -Le Critique 23:14, March 23, 2011 (UTC)
- You are now an admin. For info:
Hello Timeshifter, thank you for asking me to become an admin here and sorry that I didn't reply earlier. I am in the middle of moving to a new house and there is still no internet connection. This will be solved in a few days. I have considered your offer, and I would be glad to accept it, if Weedwiki would be an independent wiki and not a part of Wikia. I have had dealings with the people from Wikia and I don't like them. They are an arrogant lot and I've had a lot of problems with them, also on this site when I became active here and this admin, Manticore, who by the way has been fired already for admin-abuse and his anti-social behaviour, started making comments. I promised myself not to have anything to do with Wikia anymore. So if your wiki would be independent, I would gladly come and help you. A lot of wikis have already managed to get out of their clutches, seeing as they almost never give up an already controlled domain name. So for this reason i have to turn down your offer, which I do with pain in my heart, because the subject of this wiki is dear to me. I don't have much time now, but i'll contact you later when my internet connection is established. Cheers!

Admin Dashboard? Edit
Hey Timeshifter, I was just stopping by and checked the Recent Changes page but instead it brought me to a slightly different Recent Changes page that had Admin Dashboard at the top. Is this a new Wikia thing or have you been changing settings? - DragonMage 00:01, August 6, 2011 (UTC)
- This is a new Wikia setup. Comments and suggestions concerning it can be sent to the Wikia staff via Special:Contact. Also, at the central forums:
- If necessary the right sidebar can be collapsed by clicking the arrow on the line separating the 2 sides of the page. --Timeshifter 08:12, August 6, 2011 (UTC)
- Please do! Thanks. --Timeshifter 21:54, August 18, 2011 (UTC)
Requested Feature Edit
- It used to exist, but now that link no longer works. Here are the current special pages: Special:SpecialPages. I do not know if any of them have those stats. Check all the stat pages. Some of them might cover that. If not, ask at the central Wikia forums or Special:Contact. --Timeshifter 18:41, September 15, 2011 (UTC)
From Special:Contact reply:
Wikia does not offer the MostVisitedPages functionality anymore. The code behind it was hard-to-maintain and usually inaccurate. We've focused our efforts on Quantcast tracking (quantcast.com) and the stats provided at Special:AdminDashboard.

User graphic on profile page Edit
Hey TS, I uploaded a graphic to my profile page and doing it that way, I didn't see the option to state that the graphic is in the public domain. "File:Avatar4236 11.gif"

- I found this on avatars: Helpwiki:Avatars. User profile help pages may be useful too: Helpwiki:Profiles. I updated some general help info. See: Category:Help. The links now link directly to the help wiki.

Hey time-traveling man, what does [[Commons: Category:Global Marijuana March]] mean? DragonMage 15:57, November 27, 2011 (UTC)

I get the Wikia e-mail that tells how many people visited our wiki and here's what it said today:

i am a new here but a director and later chairman of our ngo Legalizace.cz for many years. We are the organizers of Million Marihuana March in Prague. I am the responsible person for promoting the event and the whole organization. You added at our page here some info about cannabizz.cz event, which is a comercial hemp fair, which happend to be held in the same year but has nothing to do with MMM 2010 in Prague. I changed it yesterday and today it is back again. So I am asking why? And i am also asking you to not add it there again, if this pages should promote our work towards legalization of marijuana. The fair is not our partner, but even than we dont wish to promote our partners here, for such reason we have our websites.
Looking forward to read your explination.
All the best and marry xmas, man.

- Dear Timeshifter,
- could you explain me why you keep adding the event cannabizz at the Prague Million Marihuana March? It has nothing to do with the demonstration. There are tons of cannabis related activites in Prague, but I thought that this page is only for the MMM event. I really dont want you to do this again unless you give me logical explanation of your action.
- thanx Liveforweed 16:25, December 18, 2011 (UTC)
- Well, that could be a solution. I would really like to distinguish MMM and other ngo Legalizace.cz activities from rest of cannabis related events in Prague. There is for example way bigger hemp fair Cannafest in Prague or local cannabis cup... thanx for understanding and supporting the legalization movement in Czech republic... Liveforweed 07:41, December 19, 2011 (UTC)
- Listen Timeshifter,
- when i go to top menu "Global Marijuana March" here in WeedWiki and there i choose "List of all cities" and there i choose Prague a presume i suppost to get a page of local Marihuana March in that city. For all other cannabis related activities and links there is More local cannabis-related links. link. So please use for cannabizz fair link and poster and other stuff that particular page and dont mess at Prague Million Marihuana March page. Thanx for understanding and respect... --Liveforweed
- If there is so much material on a city page that more pages are needed for that city then we can start more pages. I am going to start a page for you. Please see Legalizace.cz in Prague, Czech Republic and feel free to add anything to that page. You can change the name too. But please do not remove material from the main Prague page. You can copy any of it to other pages.
- You can create other pages too. See "Create new article" from the wiki tools menu. ----Timeshifter (talk) 04:22, December 20, 2011 (UTC)
(unindent). I changed my mind, and moved all the GMM stuff to here:
It is in this category:
It is listed on these city lists:
Prague, Czech Republic links to it.
There are shorter URLs also:
RE: Admin Edit
Oh my goodness, that would be great! :) I'm so busy with other stuff, but I hope I can make a difference here as well... your question definitely made my morning. :D Thank you!

Suggestion regarding videos Edit
Hey there Mr. Shifter, I just wanted to run something by you - Would you consider moving more of the videos from the front page and add them to your collection on your profile pages? The main page loads really slow for me and I felt like if you pulled some of the vids it might help a little. Just a thought ... (DragonMage 17:43, December 30, 2011 (UTC)
- Do you have broadband or dialup? Trying to figure out the problem, and various solutions. I use the FlashBlock addon on my Firefox browser. It is an on-off Flash button for Firefox.
- I put all of the videos in collapsed tables. How long is it taking now for the Main Page to load for you? ----Timeshifter (talk) 21:46, December 30, 2011 (UTC)
- The collapsed tables have done the trick! Thank you! I've got broadband (DSL). I used to have cable internet a few years ago but that got too expensive. Now the front page is loading in just a couple seconds. Before it would take approx. 10 seconds.
- Great! I wonder if it works for dialup. ----Timeshifter (talk) 17:46, December 31, 2011 (UTC)
Home Page Edit
Timeshifter, just a quick note to let you know I really like the changes you've made to the home page. It's attractive and informative without being too overwhelming. Thank you. DragonMage 22:04, February 16, 2012 (UTC)

New User Blocked Already? Edit
I just welcomed a new user, Mercy2012, and he/she is showing up as blocked??? - DragonMage 20:19, March 6, 2012 (UTC)
- Update - I just noticed that new user, Suliatlove is blocked as well... spammers? - DragonMage
- Probably some blocking done by centralized Wikia spam blocking. I wish they would put some kind of notice in the history or block logs. Spam-fighters are some of the most irritating people on Wikipedia, and it looks like some of their attitudes have migrated to Wikia. As in "we don't answer to anybody except our fellow fanboys." ---Timeshifter (talk) 01:39, March 7, 2012 (UTC)
Sliders and slideshows Edit
Hi Timeshifter, I was just thinking that a slider would look cool on the homepage, but not sure if you are into this idea or not. If so, I'm happy to help out by creating it. Thanks! Melody —Preceding unsigned comment added by Melody Cohn (talk • contribs) 17:14, March 30, 2012
- Thanks. I don't know. I will take a look when I get some more time. I see the slideshow and slider in the right column in the editing window. So I can experiment in some of my sandboxes. --Timeshifter 00:56, March 31, 2012 (UTC)
- I think she's talking about the image slideshow. I think it'd be cool as long as the image are all the same size. -- DragonMage (talk) 21:12, March 31, 2012 (UTC)
(unindent). DragonMage and Melody. Feel free to experiment in sandboxes of yours. Please do not experiment on the Main Page. :)
I experimented for a few minutes with the slider widget from the edit window and gave up. Looks like another buggy Wikia tool (at least when trying to use it from the source editor). See: Helpwiki:Galleries and slideshows. It seems to prefer the visual editor. I have the visual editor turned off, and don't want to turn it on just to use the slider. I am very busy right now with the Global Marijuana March pages. Maybe I can look at the slider in May after the GMM.
If you come up with something in the meantime let me know, and I will look at it and see if I like it, and decide whether it can go on the home page. Of course, you can create other pages.
I found this too:
- Helpwiki:Galleries and slideshows/wikitext - it is very helpful. Much better than the widget. It does not cover slider wikitext though. It only covers slideshow and gallery wikitext. I see no help page for the slider wikitext.
I have been experimenting here:
- Portal:User:Timeshifter/Sandbox 18 - please create your own sandboxes. :)
I don't like how the links are screwed up in the slideshow. There is no color change in link text.
Click the slideshow and it opens. I don't see a way to have it be default open, so that one sees the image choices on the bottom when one first launches the page.
Slideshow looks better to me than the sliders I have seen. I don't want to use the slideshow though unless I can figure out how to make it be open by default. Even then I need to study it more.
Even when the slideshow is open it only shows 5 of the image thumbnails on the bottom. Also, when it is open, the images are not as large as I prefer sometimes. I sometimes set the slideshow images to be 700 pixels wide. When the slideshow is open it drops down to 620 pixels wide for the images.
Forum pages on the slider show that it is really buggy. See this list of forum pages. And the end results for sliders on various wikis don't look that good to me. The slideshow looks better to me for what I would use it for on the main page. I think the current gallery, though, on the main page is better, and is very impressive.
This study has given me other ideas. I created a show-hide box for GMM crowd photos and added it to the 2012 GMM city pages. --Timeshifter 09:51, April 1, 2012 (UTC)

Shoulda Robbed a Bank Edit
Unlike you, I am NOT a computer guru.
A million thanks for the link you added to the post on Shoulda Robbed a Bank.
You guys have a great site here. I am honored that my book is featured on your Main Page.
Hugh Yonn typing here...I am the author of Shoulda Robbed a Bank. I truly appreciate the offer to become an administrator on this site. However, as I said in a previous mail, I am NOT that computer savvy. I do not know what an administrator is...or the duties.
But, please know that I am honored by your offer. As I become more familiar with how to navigate this site, I will stay in touch. You have some terrific links here.
Image - Todd McCormick.jpg Edit
A user has uploaded an image regarding Cannabis activist, Todd McCormick. The image is of a poster accusing this man of using tainted hash to rape women. I've looked on Google to try and confirm or refute these claims. Nowhere does it mention that he uses cannabis products to rape women or indeed that he has ever been accused of rape. This looks like it is just intended as a hate piece. The activist being slandered has a profile page on our wiki but he hasn't been active for several years.
- I think they got the wrong Todd Mccormick. I found this:
- I will handle it from here. I deleted the image, and left a note on the uploader's talk page. Hopefully they will see their mistake, and stop slandering the activist Todd. I am making the assumption, for now, that it was an error on their part. --Timeshifter (Talk) (Contribs) 17:50, December 16, 2012 (UTC)
Dana Beal and Cures Not War Edit
I have some difficulties to log in, so I post this with my IP.
I've added Dana to a list of some political prisoners, on a website of mine. I spoke of this one time here...
Edit : I've wrote to him.
The work I'm doing is in french and is dedicated to bring the Dana's story to frenchs buds. He responded me (great letter!!) and he asked me to do some things for him, which he couldn't do because he is imprisonned... One of these required me to go to his website, and to find a certain button...
Because I did not tell you, but I am too the administrator of the french website for the GMM in France. I put this website on the net to help french towns to coordinate and to be effective. My friend, Farid, is the principal organizer with JP Galland of the CIRC, of the GMM at Bastille, Paris.
So, I went on the website "cures not wars", to find a certain button which point to Ibogaine treatment. A sponsor.
I did not found it. Could you help me? Because I want to put the button on my website and maybe on several ones... This would help Dana.
- Hi again, Cynoque. I did a Google site search. See link below.
- The only thing I found on the Cures not Wars site was a heading:
- "harm reduction – medical marijuana – ibogaine".
- Here is another Google search:
- It pulls up various web pages, videos, etc..
- So far I have Paris and Toulouse listed on the 2013 GMM city list:
- Are there any more cities in France, Belgium, Luxembourg, etc. that have signed up for 2013 GMM? --Timeshifter (Talk) (Contribs) 11:12, February 1, 2013 (UTC)
- Cures not Wars
- OK... Thanks for your fast answer
- Alternative :
- I am on the website archive.org, try to "take me back" with the cures not wars address here.
- One can guess some of the history of the website cures-not-wars with archive.org (but these are snapshots of the texts and sometimes, some pics, but you know it I don't learn you anything) :
- In 2009, a wordpress was uploaded, and several articles for the GMMs were posted each year.
- You can find all back with this tool.
- But if you try to come back before 2009, with the address cures-not-wars.org and not cures-not-wars.org/wordpress, you will find a multitude of articles published by Dana Beal (I guess he was both the publisher and the writer of the ones which did not came from the massmedias).
- The first index the website saved, 1996.
- 2nd 1998.
- 2007 and 2008 (stagnation).
- 2009 (suppression!!).
- And that's in 2009 the wordpress started. Thanx to archive.org.
- Maybe you know why all have disapeared in 2009 ?
- And I believe that there were a lot of articles like this : 1998, protesters assail rising use of police camera. or this pdf : Jama article about Ibogaine (25/12/2002) ...
- The real problem is : these articles are not on the web anymore, I (and we are) am lucky because archive.org kept some webpages several times, but when you search for example, a little part of this old article What is ibogaine, on google, you won't find it ... Because nobody took the time to republish it... But the disparition of those collectionned article is strange, isn't it????
- A lot of articles which were on cures-not-wars.org are not on the web anymore...
- I ask myself, maybe they were disturbing someone?
- I find this weird and very problematic : public stuff should normally stay public...
- So I urge to know : do you know which sponsors Dana Beal talked me about in his letter?
- GMM in France
(unindent). Thanks for all the GMM in France links! I am on Facebook on that page you mentioned.
I do not know why the Cures not Wars site changed to WordPress, or did not republish the articles that are now gone. I see this all the time though. Many websites disappear, or change software, and/or delete pages. Archive.org is great for finding some stuff.
Dana Beal cowrote a book that had ibogaine as one of its topics. There are links to it online. See Wikipedia: Dana Beal. It has those links. See the references for "The Ibogaine Story: Report on the Staten Island Project":
- Thank you.
Try editing now Edit
Timeshifter, I did an experimental edit and was able to on this wiki. I was having trouble the other day as well on other wikia wikis but they seem to have fixed things (at least for me). - DragonMage (Talk) (Contribs) 21:08, March 2, 2013 (UTC)
- It seems to be working correctly now for me too using the regular Wikia skin. I found a way around the problems yesterday by changing to the MonoBook skin in Special:Preferences in the Layout menu in the Appearance section of the "My Info" tab. Found that trick from the Community Central forums. --Timeshifter (Talk) (Contribs) 03:40, March 3, 2013 (UTC)

Recent Changes showing major uploads Edit
I stopped by and looked at Recent Changes and it showed that you had uploaded a ton of videos and the log said that I had uploaded several videos today as well. What gives?

Timeshifter, just a note to let you know that webehigh.com no longer exists, but a new site is starting up at webehigh.org. All the webehigh links are now no good. --DragonMage (Talk) (Contribs) 15:57, July 12, 2014 (UTC)
- I have been updating that URL at the other wiki as inspiration happens, but I am focusing on other things other than city pages there too. Currently, I have no plans to do a 2015 city list for GMM and 420. I have energy to help with a 2015 country list for GMM and 420, but not a city list. Many others are doing 420 city lists. Hopefully, others will step up and do city lists for GMM too.
- I would prefer that all the city pages here be redirected to the other wiki, but Wikia does not allow that. I could delete all the city pages at the other wiki and redirect them here. The other wiki has no problem with that if that is what the founder of a private wiki chooses. But I much prefer the standard skin (Vector) at the other wiki. I like the portal pages here on Wikia, and the political pages. Also the chart pages here. I wish I could separate the topics covered in the 2 wikis. To avoid duplication. --Timeshifter (Talk) (Contribs) 02:49, July 13, 2014 (UTC)
