04:07 jas_ forgot about wayback machine: https://web.archive.org/web/2017070​9023003/http://old-api.minetest.ru/
04:07 jas_ (interesting, maybe not useful for a link on main page tho)
04:08 jas_ nevermind, it's just some comments, no api heh
04:08 bigfoot547 yeah
04:08 bigfoot547 Well
04:08 bigfoot547 https://web.archive.org/web/20160330235843/http:​//old-api.minetest.ru/page/view/view/intro.html\
04:08 bigfoot547 https://web.archive.org/web/20160330235843/http:​//old-api.minetest.ru/page/view/view/intro.html
04:09 jas_ oh?
04:09 jas_ back to the future, i need some coffee
04:10 jas_ oh that's something bigfoot547
04:10 jas_ neat, saving
04:27 jas_ http://dev.minetest.net/light <-- links to minetest.get_natural_light() and minetest.get_artificial_light() pages, but these don't exist, nor do the methods.  wonder what replaced them
04:28 bigfoot547 That was a PR I remember?
04:33 jas_ not sure, just noted it on worklist for now
04:34 bigfoot547 ok
04:36 jas_ the intro page links to a codecademy course for javascript.  it notes the discrepancy, saying: "but still helps.")  <-- just mentioning it hear.  i don't think it's entirely appropriate but certainly not harmful.
04:38 jas_ On that page, at the very top, rubenwardy has a <big> link but to be honest, it looks like part of the Title/Header for the page, and i didn't notice it until i clicked "Edit".  well, i'm going to go to a small page now HAHA ... /Intro is interesting.
04:44 jas_ lol (i'm reading about trees) <-- http://irc.minetest.ru/min​etest/2013-08-08#i_3250170
04:46 jas_ what is <source enclode="none"> ?
04:47 jas_ oh the font
04:47 bigfoot547 Just use <code>
04:47 bigfoot547 it's better
04:47 jas_ ok
04:49 jas_ mm, time travel
04:49 jas_ back in a few
04:50 bigfoot547 http://dev.minetest.net/HUD is the API still experimental?
04:50 jas_ haven't checked, i believe it's noted in actual lua_api.txt fiel
04:50 jas_ which i consider canon
04:51 bigfoot547 IMO, it hasn't changed a lot
04:51 bigfoot547 lemme check when that line was addeed
04:51 jas_ https://github.com/minetest/minetes​t/blob/master/doc/lua_api.txt#L1254
04:52 jas_ i feel very strongly that dev.minetest.net needs to adhere to the text of lua_api.txt heh
04:52 jas_ just my stance : )
04:52 bigfoot547 ok
04:52 bigfoot547 oo the page for blocks is not a oage
04:52 bigfoot547 page*
04:53 jas_ weee, look how much fun we're having! haha... be back in 5
04:53 bigfoot547 Ok
04:53 bigfoot547 blocks are important! lol
05:00 bigfoot547 I need to go to bed
05:00 bigfoot547 just rolled past midnight here
05:00 bigfoot547 I'll see you guys tomorrow
05:03 jas_ ok
05:03 jas_ thanks bigfoot
05:03 jas_ 1am here, but i'm graveyard shift :D
05:03 bigfoot547 ok thanx :P
05:03 jas_ before you go
05:04 jas_ anything in particular you'd like to see me address?
05:04 jas_ otherwise i'll just look around for now
05:05 bigfoot547 Well
05:05 bigfoot547 I don't have anything in particular
05:05 bigfoot547 oo wait
05:05 jas_ alright, i'll familiarize myself now and write on worklist what i find questionable... typos and little things i'll address as i find them
05:05 jas_ yes?
05:06 bigfoot547 http://dev.minetest.net/Category:Methods << I am adding stuff in here to Category:SSM/CSM respectively
05:06 bigfoot547 I left of before minetest.compress
05:06 bigfoot547 (Not a lot, I know) :P
05:06 jas_ i see, alright very good
05:06 bigfoot547 Don't be overwhelmed, we need to do it incrementallt
05:06 jas_ we'll see if i can't make it a bit further, caio
05:06 jas_ ok
05:06 bigfoot547 oke, bye, thanks :D
05:07 jas_ (my first thought was: is there an automation we can use?)  g'night o/
05:09 bigfoot548 joined #minetest-doc
05:09 bigfoot548 jas_: Someone could probably write a script for it
05:10 bigfoot548 (I quit my ZNC before you said that, I'm reading off the logs)
05:11 jas_ that aside, everything is listed under "M", but we should sort by letters of methods
05:11 jas_ because they all start with `m'inetest.
05:11 bigfoot548 Yes, I noticed that...
05:11 bigfoot548 Is there a way around that?
05:11 jas_ also, the vector part needs a header and links to individual pages
05:12 jas_ around it?  no i think we need to go through it.
05:12 jas_ : )
05:12 jas_ i will work on CSM|SSM for now
05:12 bigfoot548 Also, we need a protocol where any functions containing _s, use {{DISPLAYTITLE...}}}
05:12 jas_ it's late afterall
05:12 bigfoot548 Okay
05:12 jas_ and i know so little of mediawiki so far
05:12 jas_ rest well
05:12 bigfoot548 Yes, me too
05:13 bigfoot548 Okay, you too (I hope you get sleep tonight lol)
05:13 bigfoot548 :)
05:13 jas_ it's my night off, i get three of them a week
05:13 jas_ more or less.  so yes, i'm good and thanks
05:13 bigfoot548 Okay
05:14 bigfoot548 But remember, when you make a page containing underscores, use {{DISPLAYTITLE:minetest.function_name}} so that on the page the header is minetest.function_name not minetest.function name :P
05:14 bigfoot548 I hate inconsistencies...
05:14 jas_ ohh ok i'll note that and do so
05:14 jas_ *starts a fresh notebook* heh
05:14 bigfoot548 Thanks :)
05:15 bigfoot548 Maybe add that to the worklist under a "protocol" section?
05:15 jas_ ok
05:21 bigfoot548 keep an eye on http://dev.minetest.net/Special:SpecialPages it has a list of broken stuff
05:21 jas_ oh neat ok
05:22 bigfoot548 Sadly it doesn't keep track of redlinks/broken links
05:27 bigfoot548 I added #minetest-doc to https://wiki.minetest.net/IRC
05:28 jas_ i think your advice about DISPLAYTITLE should go on this page: http://dev.minetest.net/MinetestWiki:Style_Guide
05:28 jas_ it's even demonstrated there.  i'm hesitant to add this tidbit to worklist
05:28 jas_ (i've got it in my fresh notebook tho.  the string in the binding is coming loose, oh no!)
05:29 bigfoot548 Well, I think that, since it's not a function containing underscores, but rather a 2-word page title, it's not necessarily a problem
05:29 jas_ i'll be on the lookout though, i don't like that inconsistency either
05:30 bigfoot548 Okay
05:30 bigfoot548 I'm off for real now
05:30 bigfoot548 My dad is breathing down my neck :P
05:30 jas_ you better! l8z
05:30 bigfoot548 mk
05:31 bigfoot548 (I'm bad at good-byes in case you haven't noticed :P)
05:31 jas_ i could talk all night if you didn't notice haha
05:31 jas_ but we'll pause, and resume later
05:31 jas_ have fun
08:15 jas_ i've updated worklist.  changed "depreciated" template text to read "deprecated" ... but dunno about making a new template yet, will probably look into it
08:16 jas_ then change over whatever links to depreciated to the new deprecated template.  unless pages can be simply renamed.

15:20 red-001 jas_, bigfoot547 what do you think of adding the link to the instructions for compiling on android to the main page just below the link to general compiling instructions?
15:38 jas_ I think you'd need to ask Calinou, as the front page is locked.  is compilation on android possible again now?  i heard it was currently not working.
15:46 pigra_kojoto joined #minetest-doc
15:46 red-001 hi pigra_kojoto
15:46 pigra_kojoto hi
16:25 Calinou hi
16:26 Calinou red-001: this page? http://dev.minetest.net/Android
16:26 red-001 yeah
16:27 Calinou http://dev.minetest.net/Compiling_Minetest is already linked on the home page
16:27 Calinou if you want, I can add ''See [[Android]] for compiling Minetest for Android.''
16:27 Calinou at the beginning of that page
16:28 Calinou done: http://dev.minetest.net/Compiling_Minetest
