Unused file deletion request

@Milan Rađenović: All done. Tvchannellists (talk) 10:42, 24 April 2020 (UTC)

New front page request

@Milan Rađenović: Thanks for the contribution. I've added the list to the front page now. Tvchannellists (talk) 12:25, 29 April 2020 (UTC)

Mass replacement suggestion

Hello again. I've noticed a lot of pages use [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Example.com Example] rather than [[wikipedia:Example.com|Example]]. Personally, I think the interwiki prefix variant (the latter) should supersede the external link usage for English Wikipedia links. What are your thoughts?

Cheers, –Milan Rađenović (talk) 16:55, 2 May 2020 (UTC)

@Milan Rađenović: Either option is fine with me as they both work. But since it's individual users putting those links in, you'll probably have a hard time getting one or the other consistently used. Tvchannellists (talk) 01:53, 3 May 2020 (UTC)

Spare server capacity

Hi everyone. A while back, TVCL upgraded from shared hosting to VPS hosting as we were reaching server capacity. However, with the upgrade, we now have spare capacity that's left unused, which seems a bit wasteful. So if you have an idea for a MediaWiki-based website (or potentially other platforms), get in touch via email to see if we can host it on our VPS. Tvchannellists (talk) 05:41, 3 May 2020 (UTC)

Honestly, I do not see any benefits of doing this. In my opinion, it would be better to reserve capacity for the future of this website than to spend it away on a website whose number of active users will be in single digits/completely inactive—not to mention that inactive MediaWiki sites are safehouses for spambots. Speaking of which, you have a leftover spambot here. –Milan Rađenović (talk) 13:45, 3 May 2020 (UTC)
@Milan Rađenović: Thanks for the feedback. We've actually been experiencing negative growth as Google has demoted us in their search results on several key search phrases since about October last year; alongside that, the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in significant falls in advertising revenue, which funds the site's hosting costs (TVCL will stay up irrespective of any advertising revenue drops, however).
I've removed the spambot page and that Wiki will likely be shut down once its domain expires due to its inactivity. Tvchannellists (talk) 02:50, 4 May 2020 (UTC)

Couple of requests


Thank you! –Milan Rađenović (talk) 15:59, 3 May 2020 (UTC)

@Milan Rađenović: Hi Milan. This has been actioned now. Thanks. Tvchannellists (talk) 02:43, 4 May 2020 (UTC)

Future additional over the air list

Hello to all, it's been a *while*. I am seeing that quite a few Mexican TV stations can be viewed in the US in different border city markets, and many of those are listed online (RabbitEars, and maybe Wikipedia (I haven't looked yet)). With that, I will probably have a list going soon for Mexican Over the Air listings. I know from doing other additions here before, that a new section isn't added until a new article/page has been established. Just letting you know in advance. Thanks...

@Easttxtv: Hi there. Welcome back. No need to let us know in advance -- just pop us a message here once the page is ready for the front page. Thanks! Tvchannellists (talk) 12:49, 6 May 2020 (UTC)

Main page.

Hi, I created List on channels on Manbang (North Korea). Can this be added to the main page please? Thank you. Oh, it's an IPTV. TattooedLeprechaun (talk) 15:44, 15 May 2020 (UTC)

It's for North Korea by the way. TattooedLeprechaun (talk) 16:02, 15 May 2020 (UTC)
@TattooedLeprechaun: Thanks for the contribution, TattooedLeprechaun. I've added it to the front page now. Tvchannellists (talk) 06:23, 16 May 2020 (UTC)
