Hi, Could we get a tracker or a Special statistics report added to the wiki...
I'd try do it - but I am really only a common or garden editor.
If we could also like to get some infoboxes - see my comment to Ryan. Kite.henley (talk) 09:34, 17 October 2018 (SAST)

What stats do you think will be useful, without overcomplicating the view? RyanHultzer (talk) 16:45, 17 October 2018 (SAST)
Ryan, I think you are a better person to respond with Kite's question... ScoutWeb (talk) 08:00, 18 October 2018 (SAST)
As a motivator - in a footer on the landing page:A table or dashboard with (for now), Number of: pages, pictures, visitors (local vs international), new unique visitors,
Some derived stats: visitors per editor, new pages /day, pages viewed/visitor. This is all of course all a nice-to-have, I am eternally grateful for a real wiki for ScoutsSA

I think this is a great idea. I looked around for an extension, but the one hopeful option seems to have disappeared. This should be easy enough to create as a new extension (when I get some time to experiment with this). --RyanHultzer (talk) 08:40, 18 October 2018 (SAST)

Cub Badge placement

Thanks for fixing my attempt to sort out the link problem - but was called away last night and didn't even get to roll back my defective edits. Much appreciated! Kite.henley (talk) 15:10, 11 August 2021 (SAST)

User Page

Hi Ian, I seem to have broken my user page - if it can be restored that would be great but no problem if we just refresh and start again, I like to keep handy links there for future reference - and am missing a place to scribble down notes as it were.

Hi Kite.henley, your page is broken for me as well. Perhaps there is badly formatted markup or wiki CSS that breaks with your page. I'm afraid I have no idea but RyanHultzer might be able to help better than me. ScoutWeb (talk) 12:29, 3 February 2023 (SAST)
Sorry Kite.henley I only saw this now. I have fixed your page temporarily. It took some time to find out what caused the page crash, but after reviewing debug logs, I narrowed it down to the Special:ContributionScores extention. I disabled the extension, changed your cscore magic word to nowiki text and re-enabled the extention. However I cannot understand why the magic word is no longer working other than the fact that I upgraded the wiki version a week back. I can't find any references online to this bug. --RyanHultzer (talk) 19:58, 7 February 2023 (SAST)
I found that the extension was using a deprecated function $parser->mStripState in ContributionScores.php which I changed manually to $parser->getStripState() which fixed the issue. I reverted your page. --RyanHultzer (talk) 20:13, 7 February 2023 (SAST)

Scout Calendar Special Days

Please contribute to the obviously missing WCape events on the page Scout Calendar Special Days - I had fully intended to complete the page as much as possible before publishing... but it is beginning to feel like procrastination on my side. Kite.henley (talk) 15:59, 30 July 2023 (SAST)
