Now You See, Now You Don't See

Something's askew.
Hood River County, Oregon map - visible line comment "showing location of Hood River County"

In past I could add the line comment. Now I can't because the line comments are invisible in more recent edits not only by me but also others, too. dsammy 22:17, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

Is this when you are editing, or after you have done the edit that includes the line comment? If it is after the edit is done and it is supposed to show, it is because the programming of the feature is not complete because when you program a function, it should work across all browsers. If it is not showing at all when you are actually filling in the edit information, then it is the general program somewhere that is broken. JamesAnderson
In very old edits, I was able to add px|xxxxxx]] and they stay visible when in wikitext and saved. Now in wikitext, the line is gone yet it stay visible to the public. How? I was checking to refresh my memory how it was done before I add maps elsewhere. dsammy 03:54, 2 February 2010 (UTC)
I have added this to a new thread in the forum. Thomas_Lerman 21:30, 2 February 2010 (UTC)

Sluggish?

It has been very slow doing any work last night and today. dsammy 22:17, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

Didn't observe anything different myself, was probably net congestion. JamesAnderson 03:28, 2 February 2010 (UTC)

Project to clean up the footer links

See forum thread for further discussion. --Fran 15:36, 8 February 2010 (UTC)

During the next 30 days there will be a project to clean up the footer links that appear on every page in the Wiki. Your ideas and feedback are needed. In past community meetings, there were discussions about how hard it was to know the right option to choose (Contact Us, Technical Support, Feedback, Forums, etc.) Now's your chance to help get it right! Here's what it looks like today:
