Hello & naming[edit]

Hey Sophist. Just want to stop by and welcome you to WikiChip. I noticed over Talk:mirc you were looking to start a example section. As Inject said, that's fine so long it's in the same style as our existing tutorials more or less since the goal of the site is education of the language rather than being a code database of existing solution. If you think your idea fits our scope, go for it.

I noticed the change the category 'MIRC' to 'mIRC' and that's fine, although generally we want all articles (at least all new ones) to be in lowercase (see WikiChip:naming conventions). Since most articles are some sub-article of a particular subject (e.g., mIRC) we usually slap an {{XXX title|foo}} template at the top to style the title nicely. The mIRC section is really old and some stuff like the templates and categories are ancient (In fact the 'MIRC' one was before we even disabled first letter capital like Wikipedia has) so they might not obey our newer naming. Anyway not a biggie, just for future reference.

Welcome. David! --David (talk) 15:54, 20 September 2017 (EDT)

PS I just redirected that duplicate article to the other one. --David (talk) 15:55, 20 September 2017 (EDT)
I am not changing MIRC to mIRC - they are currently split across the two, and I am merging and making it consistent. I understand what you say about naming conventions, however mIRC is how it is spelt. Sophist (talk) 16:03, 20 September 2017 (EDT)
Yea we normally lowercase the article names regardless of their proper spelling. But the mIRC categories are kind of a mess anyway so it doesn't really matter. By the way, I could've saved you the hard work and just use a bot to replace the categories on all the articles! --David (talk) 16:16, 20 September 2017 (EDT)
I am doing other tweaks at the same time e.g. to get them characterised alphabetically. So no worries. Sophist (talk) 16:18, 20 September 2017 (EDT)

mSL Optimisation[edit]

I replied to you by editing your comment to me, but that doesn't look like the right way to do it, as it's not filling in the links and dates etc.

Hey, /set -l is much faster regardless of the number of variable to be set. I'm not going to write a benchmark script for it, you can do it if you want, but it's only logical. Please don't revert my edit. what I write is very well tested and is almost always proof read. I'm objective, so if you think something is wrong, please talk about it on swiftirc.net #mircscripting, if your benchmark is proving stuff, I'll edit the page.
