This page is a wishlist of things that would be nice to have on this wiki. There are a few things that aren't immediately needed, but it might be nice to have, and others depend on the security of the site. Max has got to do a bunch of the stuff, unless he allows db access, which probably isn't going to happen.


  • Expand the main namespace to include articles for all the major fads and YTMND sites without forking them from the fads list. YTMND is not Wikipedia after all and "This comes from Wikipedia/Fadwiki" messages look ghey.
  • Try to explain why a fad is funny to newcomers. Some (lots) of people look at these YTMND and either don't get the joke, or don't know why they're funny.


  • Make skin of the site look like the main YTMND site (see MediaWiki talk:Monobook.css), and when the new skin comes out, that too.
  • Get fonts to match YTMND's, so it may integrate nicely. The headings and such should be capitalized, if possible, and the font to match up with the main site's

Technical (requires db access)

Changes to LocalSettings.php

Quick and easy

  • Personal user styles (I loves me some popups). Set $wgAllowUserJs and $wgAllowUserCss to true.
  • Set $wgShowIPinHeader to false, so it won't look lame when someone's just reading (this setting removes the redlinks at the top of the page next to log in, and since we don't allow anons, we should just get rid of this. WP has this set to false, but allows anons to edit)
  • Enable Special:Emailuser/USERNAME e-mail by setting $wgEnableUserEmail to True
  • Set $wgAllowRealName to false. Real names are retarded.
  • Set $wgAmericanDates to true. YTMND is American, not French (or British, whatever).
  • Set $wgCapitalLinks to false. We want syncan to appear as syncan and lol, internet to appear as lol, internet (emptying). There aren't that many that it would fuck everything up, but it would be well used, I think.
  • Turn off patrolled edits, a useless feature, by setting $wgUseRCPatrol to false.
    Are you sure? I find it somewhat useful. We don't have a CVU IRC channel. And I mark edits patrolled sometimes. --LBMixPro<lol, talk page> 12:29, June 11, 2006 (CDT)
    I wish they were automatic or js-enabled. As it is, it just means you have one more thing to click. If it registered as patrolled when I visited it, that would make sense (that way others could know it's been seen), but as it is, it's just dumb to have to click it and reload another page. -Mysekurity | it's legal in some states 22:27, June 18, 2006 (CDT)

Slightly longer (instructions on linked page)

Extensions (help)

Possibly added later, if needed
