18:15 mgage aubreyja: hi
18:15 aubreyja Hi
18:15 mgage did you do something with openwebwork.org?  I can get in now
18:16 aubreyja nothing that I think would affect your account - I just upgraded JT and Arnie's accounts to admin
18:16 mgage but I also noticed a lot of blocked users (pretty clearly spam -- and I'm not sure how that blocking is being accomplished)
18:17 aubreyja I think the default status is blocked - someone needs to manually unblock accounts I believe
18:17 aubreyja I think we could benefit from a captcha here
18:17 aubreyja the accounts are being created so regularly I suspect it's being done programmatically
18:18 mgage probably -- a bunch were created about an hour ago when I was trying to login I wonder if that was what was keeping me out
18:19 mgage Djun was trying to get us to use names rather than usual user handles so we might want to get arnie changed to Arnie Pizer from apizer   --Djun changed gage  to Mike Gage
18:20 mgage looks like things are ok for the moment, but we should put maintenance such as adding a captcha   and also installing security updates on the list of things to get to.
18:20 aubreyja yeah, and we should figure out how to make a skin so it looks like a natural member of our other resources
18:21 mgage that was a task that anneke and vicki were going to undertake.  (My turning spring green to blue seemed to mollify them -- but there is more to do.  :-) )
18:22 mgage I'll encourage Vicki to put some time into it on Friday -- and to nudge Anneke
18:22 aubreyja that was 'spring green'?  blue is definitely better
18:22 mgage well some kind of green
18:22 aubreyja There are books written on skinning drupal, but hopefully we won't need to get into that level of detail
18:23 mgage probably not -- and I'm happy to leave it to some other people with better taste than mine.
18:23 aubreyja me too
18:24 mgage ok -- I'm on to the next thing.  Glad things are beginning to calm down there at U. of Arizona.
18:24 mgage ttyl
18:24 aubreyja yep, they are. ttyl

20:34 goehle hey mgage_
20:34 goehle trying out the new pull request style
20:35 goehle I still think a whole pull request for a 1 line change to a css file is silly, but I suppose its the price you pay for good organization
20:58 goehle left #webwork
21:39 mgage_ joined #webwork
22:05 mgage_ goehle:  I pulled it.
22:10 goehle joined #webwork
22:17 goehle hey mgage
22:17 mgage_ hi
22:17 goehle should I put the accessability thing on bugzilla or as a github issue?
22:18 mgage_ go ahead and put it on a github issue -- that is actually more likely to be noticed by someone who is methodically looking at accessibility on each webpage
22:20 goehle ok will do
22:21 mgage_ ok -- I made a small comment and pulled it.  It will take me a while to get the version working on devel1 or hosted2 however.
22:24 goehle no worries.  I just fix these things as I see them otherwise I forget.
22:25 goehle I try to be a little bold and change things for the better but there are bound to be some reversions
22:25 goehle oh, anything else I need to do for the code camp
22:25 mgage_ it's how I work also.
22:25 mgage_ not just yet -- we may have a little homework to get familiar with what Peter has done before we arrive but I don't quite have it set up yet.
22:26 goehle sounds like plane work to me :)
22:26 mgage_ possibly -- not sure how extensive it is yet.  :-)
22:27 goehle hmm, yes, good point
