This is the place to post tasks that need to be done on the wiki. Also this is the place for proposed changes. I heard about people wanting a favicon and arranging the main page into categories.

Key pages

I would like to propose a new rule: Do not create a key page (e.g.- Jasper 8C148 (iPad)) unless you can also provide at least one key. Key pages are meant to share decryption keys with others. Copying and pasting from a template page provides us with no information whatsoever, and also wastes time (both the poster's and the administrators'). Thoughts on this? --Dialexio 21:50, 4 November 2011 (MDT)

I'm against that. While I agree we shouldn't create all empty pages to fill out later, I don't see any reason to have a rule for that. Or was that a problem recently and I missed it? I also created pages with very few content (like Siri), that other users picked up or hopefully will pick up and enhanced. Key pages are a little different though. And the page you reference was never empty (but had wrong keys initially). So if you feel a big need to have such a rule, go on. -- http 05:06, 5 November 2011 (MDT)
I was simply using that page as an example of a key page, for those that had no clue what I was talking about. I think that posting an article with little content is a bit different from an empty key page; at least a small amount of information is being provided. In addition, it's easier to tell whether a key page needs to be filled out or not if the key page's link is red because the page was never created. I'll wait for additional feedback from anybody else before I decide on whether or not to add this to the rules. --Dialexio 11:31, 5 November 2011 (MDT)
Ok --Balloonhead66 16:58, 12 December 2011 (MST)

New Upper Left Image

If someone has a good one, I'll change it. Who still has an iPhone 2G? --geohot 13:11, 12 December 2011 (MST)

File:NewLogo.png? Problem is one like that doesnt scale well. Maybe a rotated (like this) image of an iPhone 4S or an iPad 2. I have an image of a rotated iPhone 4S if you want... --Balloonhead66 14:04, 12 December 2011 (MST)
Something with an iPhone and the iPhone wiki logo from the main page would look good. I'll see if I can make one up. thekirbylover 23:06, 17 December 2011 (MST)
why not the iOS logo? --M2m 10:02, 18 December 2011 (MST)
I don't think we can use that because it's a copyrighted logo. thekirbylover 18:06, 18 December 2011 (MST)
Agreed --Balloonhead66 18:15, 18 December 2011 (MST)
Mine requires a bit of extra CSS for it too look good. This can be added to Mediawiki:skin.css. thekirbylover 17:59, 19 December 2011 (MST)
i have an iPhone 2G geohot! --Zmaster 12:08, 24 December 2011 (MST)
Ok, I got something from @iSurenix. He says: "In case you don't like it, I can always fix it up etc. but I think it looks new, fresh and updated." -- http 13:40, 25 December 2011 (MST)
Excellent! --Cole Johnson 14:54, 25 December 2011 (MST)
I think it blends into the background too much because the iPhone is white. Thats just my opinion thought. Otherwise I like it. --Jacob 16:18, 25 December 2011 (MST)

Proposed logos

Cydia links

Links to Cydia, such as cydia://package/com.example.test, don't seem to wanna be linkified by the wiki, but there's an internal setting you can change: $wgUrlProtocols[] = "cydia://";. You might also want to use MediaWiki:Vector.css to add a mini Cydia icon next to it. thekirbylover 18:06, 18 December 2011 (MST)

As for the localsettings.php change, this is geohot's problem. As for the CSS change, we could use Cydia.png@16px. --Balloonhead66 18:15, 18 December 2011 (MST)
Yep, I was gonna put that CSS in my User:thekirbylover/monobook.css after I posted that. Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Monobook.css is used on Vector pages too. thekirbylover 18:21, 18 December 2011 (MST)
I checked the source and the "/load.php?{CRAP}" are empty and for some reason, Template:Wp's "Inspect Element" show up styles... --Balloonhead66 18:29, 18 December 2011 (MST)
/skin.css is cross skin while /vector.css and /monobook.css are per-skin --Balloonhead66 18:31, 18 December 2011 (MST)

MD Bootrom

Editing the models page, I noticed that the new white iPod touch 4s have MD bootroms. However, I'm not sure about the black models, so can someone with a black touch 4 bought after September please tell me which model is reported in Settings? Thanks. thekirbylover 23:46, 22 December 2011 (MST)

Those are not bootroms; those are model numbers. According to Apple's online store, the black iPod touch 4G still has the same "MC" model numbers as before. --Dialexio 10:27, 23 December 2011 (MST)
Ah, I see. Thanks for checking. thekirbylover 16:33, 23 December 2011 (MST)
