Finland Rideshare link

I removed the rideshare site link added to Finland not because it was not "valid", but because it was the only edit that the user had made -- he seems to have signed up solely to promote this site. On many wikis, to avoid rewarding linkspamming, it is customary to revert the addition of external links when they are the poster's first and sole contribution.

Yup yup, understood that. Sometimes it's good to check out the site itself if it has also english version. This time the only edit user had done was good edit. ;-) In future if you find any weird looking language that might be Finnish, ping me too. -Mikael (talk) 14:12, 14 January 2013 (CET)

Talk history

Tip: It's more convenient to "move" the page so that the history is kept with the page itself... You could still do that if you think it's worth it :) guaka (talk) 18:02, 14 January 2013 (CET)

CSS seems to have gone completely off the rails

Have already posted this to Guaka's and MrTweek's talk pages, but that seems to have gone nowhere, so

Can you please, please, please have a look at what's wrong with the current CSS set-up/processing. The Hitchwiki (default) skin is sort of OK (it still does not create sortable tables, see my summary page when using that skin), but all others seem top have completely gone, selecting any of them will create long completely unformatted pages.

Since when Is that happening? I think the non-hitchwiki themes were never really intended to be used here, we just didn't bother deleting them. The table sorting is a Javascript issue. Not sure why though, do you have an idea, Mikael?
Anything else that is not working in the hitchwiki theme? --MrTweek(talk) 13:36, 2 August 2013 (CEST)
Sorry guys, will be offline after a couple of hours for like a week. I had forgotten about that JS-table sorting issue. Adding stuff to the long todo-list. I guess it wouldn't be too big thingy to make everything more or less work with all themes. Anywawy, I'm off to Hitchgathering! Laters! -Mikael (talk) 13:40, 2 August 2013 (CEST)
The Special Pages "Recent Changes Cleanup" using the monobook skin is completely and utterly screwed up, the sidebar items are in the table, and logo covers part of the table. Prino (talk) 14:55, 12 August 2013 (CEST)
I see, it seems to be some broken html coming from extension. Maybe updating helps; I opened an issue about it. -Mikael (talk) 16:18, 12 August 2013 (CEST)


The Hitchwiki:Travelmap seems to be broken... I don't know if it has to do with the crash or not, just thought I'd let you know ;-) Cheers, N0id (talk) 16:01, 15 September 2013 (CEST)

Thanks! I just created an an issue. -Mikael (talk) 16:54, 15 September 2013 (CEST)


Hey, the link to facebook for the brazilian gathering is the wrong one ;-) --N0id (talk) 18:38, 4 January 2014 (CET)

Thx, changed it to the right one now. Sunny greets from Lisbon! -Mikael (talk) 21:18, 4 January 2014 (CET)


It has come to my attention that most of the discussion about the 2014 August hitchgathering is being done on Facebook. I don’t think this is fair, as many active hitchhikers have deleted their Facebook accounts (some never had a FB account to begin with). Moving the discussion to Hitchwiki will be ideal for everyone. Which reminds me, what happened to our forums? CRCulver (talk) 18:46, 12 April 2014 (CEST)


It is not clear what the "pad" link in this page means and why it redirects back to the same page. I will be in Turkey in December, I may be interested in the event. CRCulver (talk) 15:21, 26 October 2014 (UTC)
