Hey, I needed to require e-mail addresses. Since I didn't get a response from you I doctored something to allow your account to continue to work. Feel free to change the e-mail, and to contact me if there are any problems. Thanx.

Hmm .. works differently than I thought. Could you go into your user settings and put an e-mail address there and get back to me? Apparently when I turn on the "Require e-mail address" feature existing users without an e-mail address will just be unable to edit without being told why. Which is horrible, but I'm not about to rewrite the wiki code to fix that. Please let me know. Thanx.

Hey, we've been having horrible spam problems on the site which I spend a lot of time every week removing. I'd like to require people to type in an e-mail address to be able to edit pages. I think you'd be prompted once to add an e-mail address, and I'm hoping that will stop a lot of the automatic spammers. Please let me know if this is a problem for you. Thanx.

Thanx, that's a good idea.

MetFan, thank you for the compliment. As far as the pictures at the top are concerned, I've been wondering one thing - why are all of them of current players except for Jesse Orosco at the right? I think it should be a line of Mets through the years. For example, start with the beginning of their history (Casey Stengel) and make a string of players to form a time line (Seaver, Stearns, Wilson, Hernandez, etc.) up to the current team (Wright, Reyes.) This would look much better. Keep the Orosco picture, though. That's a good one!

Hey Supermet, we're going to update the pictures near the search box. I'm thinking of just replacing Lo Duca and Maine with Ike Davis and Tom Seaver, unless you have better ideas. Your writing continues to amaze me. Thanx!

Hey, thanks for all your great contributions. Sorry for the late notice, but we're going to be transferring to better servers, and we're going to have to put the site in read-only mode so that you don't lost any work. It will probably be for 2 days. We'll have messages on the site showing when the period starts and ends, and I'll send you a message to let you know when it's back up. Thanks.

Yes, you can rename a page by clicking the Move tab. Yes, it's acceptable if you think it's the right thing. You should change any links that go to that page. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanx

Hi, MetFan! Thanks for your message. Sorry that I didn't see it sooner. I have figured out how to use this site, but I'm still new to it and need to learn more.

Tell me something. Is it possible to change the title of a page that has already been written? If so, is it considered to be acceptable?

Hey, welcome to The Met Wiki! Great stuff! You seem to have figured it all out on your own, but if you have any questions, let me know. Thanx, and enjoy the site!
