Get on with it!

Yeah, you heard me. LOL. Welcome. :) --Sahabah (talk) 09:23, 13 December 2012 (PST)

Hi Al-Qaum, a welcome from me too! If you do as many edits as Sahabah has done, this website would be complete and I would have to retire. --Axius (talk) 14:46, 13 December 2012 (PST)

Thanks :) Al-Qaum (talk) 09:46, 19 December 2012 (PST)

Some help

Al-Qaum. You may find it easier to copy and paste this empty template, then add the text in:

{{Quote|1=[{{Reference archive|1=|2=2012-12-19}} ]<BR>, December , 2012|2=}}

Also for those skipped text:

<BR>. . .<BR>

Hope that helps. Leave me a message on my talk page if you have any probs.

Cheers, guv. --Sahabah (talk) 09:30, 19 December 2012 (PST)

Iiiight :P Al-Qaum (talk) 09:45, 19 December 2012 (PST)


Salaam. Just a quick thank you for taking control of our news section! It means a lot. --Sahabah (talk) 09:19, 27 December 2012 (PST)

Shalom. No problem Al-Qaum (talk) 10:19, 27 December 2012 (PST)


I've left you that link on your user page. --Sahabah (talk) 22:06, 7 January 2013 (PST)

Thanks Al-Qaum (talk) 22:11, 7 January 2013 (PST)

Persecution links

I've remove this link (Cleric Encourages Kidnapping of Iraqi Christian Women & Girls) from the persecution page and moved it to the "Interesting Articles" page. This is because a fatwa (words) encouraging persecution is not actual persecution. The news you added to United States is great because scaring people on a bus by saying you're going to blow it up definitely is persecution. Hope that helps. :) --Sahabah (talk) 05:45, 11 January 2013 (PST)

Yesh. Thanks Al-Qaum (talk) 15:02, 13 January 2013 (PST)


Hi. I've sorted that page out for you[1]. The template can be found here[2]. I've got rid of most of the quotes, because we should only keep the "best". Good luck and thanks for volunteering to create this series. I can see it has the potential to become very popular.--Sahabah (talk) 16:06, 23 February 2013 (PST)

No problem. Cheers gov' Al-Qaum (talk) 16:22, 23 February 2013 (PST)
LOL. Stop pilfering my words :D I've just added some extra instructions to that template so you can use it easily.--Sahabah (talk) 16:29, 23 February 2013 (PST)

Honor killing

Just so you are aware, there's lots more here: --Sahabah (talk) 21:08, 4 March 2013 (PST)


Sorry about the friggin blocks. The site bot is doing it in accident. I'll try to keep an eye out in case it blocks you again (lol it'll probably block me and Axius next).--Sahabah (talk) 20:49, 10 March 2013 (PDT)

Yea, sorry, I dont know how that happened. Yea that sucks! I was actually working on this block extension today and trying to fix bugs/make it ready for the RU site.
Can you remember the steps you were trying to do? I'll then replicate it and track this down. --Axius (talk) 20:54, 10 March 2013 (PDT)

I couldn't replicate it - not sure what happened. But I'll try some other fixes and add in another check and we'll have to wait to see if it happens again. Just to be sure, could you try that action again? (file upload). And then later after I do these fixes, I'll have you do that once more. --Axius (talk) 16:42, 11 March 2013 (PDT)

I'll try it again after I update the news section. --Al-Qaum (talk) 21:27, 11 March 2013 (PDT)

hi Al-Q, for some reason its not recognizing your username. Its either because of the dash or capitalization. I need to fix that. Try doing the same file upload and see if it blocks you again. If it does, don't do any other edits (so it wont keep blocking you) until I look into it. Easy way to check if its working is to try to edit the main page (and revert). This way you wont get blocked.
Just to confirm, all you did was to do that file upload and thats the exact moment it blocks in the first place, correct? (in addition to the other blocks). Also tell me the exact capitalization that you type in when you login. For example you may be typing al-quam, or Al-quam, or al-Qaum. It might be a bug in the system that I will fix.
Sahabah, click this [3] after unblocking. Sorry guys. --Axius (talk) 04:51, 12 March 2013 (PDT)

Hi Axius. Yes, it kept blocking as soon as I uploaded images. And I type in Al-Qaum when I log in.--Al-Qaum (talk) 18:23, 12 March 2013 (PDT)

Ok thanks. Try the upload now. If it blocks again then we'll have to do a rename of the username for now (without any dashes, or capital letters in the middle). --Axius (talk) 19:18, 12 March 2013 (PDT)
Ok I think it should be fixed now (maybe). Try a file upload and that will tell me if it worked. --Axius (talk) 14:48, 17 March 2013 (PDT)

Ok. I'll find something to upload after I finish with the news.--Al-Qaum (talk) 20:05, 18 March 2013 (PDT)

Thanks, or just upload anything arbitrary. Sorry for any block in advance. You can actually unlock yourself as well -> [4] (I think) and after you do, click on this link-> [5]. I'm doing a big overhaul of this blocking system. --Axius (talk) 20:15, 18 March 2013 (PDT)

I just uploaded 6 image files and I didn't get blocked :P--Al-Qaum (talk) 00:10, 19 March 2013 (PDT)

Great looked like it works now. thanks --Axius (talk) 04:36, 19 March 2013 (PDT)

NP, and thanks for fixing it --Al-Qaum (talk) 14:10, 19 March 2013 (PDT)


Hey Al, I fixed that link for you[6]. I did it by archiving the link without all the crap after the .html (see here:[7])I dunno why, but sometimes when you visit pages through other links, it adds extra stuff to the URL that you don't need. --Sahabah (talk) 16:01, 19 March 2013 (PDT)

OK. Thanks. Al-Qaum (talk) 16:06, 19 March 2013 (PDT)


Thanks for that new page! I moved it from "Honor Related Violence (Yemen)" to "Honor Related Violence - Yemen" because URLs break with brackets. We then use the rename template to change the displayed name (see here[8]). We then link it like this[9].--Sahabah (talk) 19:40, 20 March 2013 (PDT)

Ok :P. Al-Qaum (talk) 19:43, 20 March 2013 (PDT)

Image resizing

hi Al-Q, for these certain images (of Islamic violence etc), could you resize images before uploading to around 800pixels on the maximum width, and with 70-80% quality, if it asks. This would reduce the file size. This is in case you plan to upload a lot more. one site for resizing --Axius (talk) 18:32, 5 April 2013 (PDT)

Ok. No problemAl-Qaum (talk) 18:46, 5 April 2013 (PDT)

Boston images

Hey again. I've temporarily hidden the image additions until the motives are confirmed. Statistically, it's most likely Islamic. But it could very well be a "Real American" nutter.--Sahabah (talk) 17:11, 16 April 2013 (PDT)

Ok. I was thinking the same too.Al-Qaum (talk) 22:13, 16 April 2013 (PDT)


I added your page to here: --Sahabah (talk) 19:00, 26 April 2013 (PDT)

Great. Thanks.Al-Qaum (talk) 15:51, 27 April 2013 (PDT)

New articles list

Hi Al. I'm going to link the hub page rather than the one you added, since it's all new stuff. That was a good idea to give it it's own page. Now the main news pages don't have to be filled with news on the same thing. --Sahabah (talk) 04:20, 29 April 2013 (PDT)

Ok. That sounds better.Al-Qaum (talk) 15:30, 29 April 2013 (PDT)

New template for news

Al, there's a new template for you to use when you add news and stuff. It's under "Insert Quote:". I think it's meant to be inserted within the first quote template like this:

{{Quote|Insert new template here|Insert quote here}}

Let me know if you need any help with it.--Sahabah (talk) 00:33, 10 June 2013 (PDT)

Ignore those instructions. I've fixed it so you just have to press the second template under "Insert Quote:", and it will automatically do all that.--Sahabah (talk) 03:28, 10 June 2013 (PDT)

OK. Thanks.Al-Qaum (talk) 19:27, 10 June 2013 (PDT)

Ooops! Thanks for correcting that heading :) --Sahabah (talk) 21:12, 8 July 2013 (PDT)

NP :PAl-Qaum (talk) 21:50, 8 July 2013 (PDT)


Can this go in the news section? (talk) 08:32, 20 October 2013 (PDT)

Western propaganda. Thanks anywayAl-Qaum (talk) 16:01, 20 October 2013 (PDT)
Agreed. This story is so obviously BS that it's laughable. There is nothing except a badly photoshopped image to back up what this one British guy is saying, and the comments being posted on that article are tearing the claim apart. It's ironic that the very same article mentions how these al-Qaeda linked terrorists have only recently snipered the head of the Syrian military intelligence. Actually, even the lying Brit admits "he could not be certain which side the snipers were on". Magical snipers who can get headshots on unborn babies. Who'da thunk it?--Sahabah (talk) 16:31, 20 October 2013 (PDT)

Restarting News

Hi Al. I've created those pages you asked for: October, November, December, January, & February. --Sahab (talk) 17:57, 21 February 2014 (PST)
