MediaWiki 1.19 extensions

The current list of known issues with MediaWiki extensions on newly-created wikis (af: fy: ie: io: mwl: and vls: are currently MW 1.19alpha) include the following extensions:

  • mw:extension:Gadgets *was* once working and is now returning "hook failed to return a value". Perhaps a new version will fix this, if it was broken by a so-called 'upgrade'?
  • mw:extension:MW-EditCount and LogCount ($wgMessageCache is deprecated - $skinTemplate->mTitle is also broken by upgrade and must be changed to $skinTemplate->getTitle().)
  • mw:extension:NewPageCSS fails to return a value, leaving UNIQ-gibberish-css-00000-QINU on the page: fix is here.
  • mw:extension:ImageMap and mw:extension:InputBox need to be replaced with the latest versions for MW1.19 and left as the old versions for MW1.17alpha - these do work if the correct version is present.
  • mw:extension:Google Maps (where installed) was also breaking - this affects one wiki on this server; mw:extension:Maps is a partial, credible alternative but doesn't appear to allow users to draw a path on a map (just individual points of interest). [This was reported in MediaWiki's bugzilla and has been addressed by fixing the original extension]
  • mw:extension:RawMsg (fixable but kludgy by removing $wgMessageCache as deprecated in MW1.18 and later).
  • mw:extension:SpecialInterwiki Versão 1.3.1 needs to be fixed or replaced with a later version (1.4.x);
  • mw:extension:SpecialNamespaces is based on the old version Special:Interwiki code and now broken under MW1.19. Fix is here
  • mw:extension:Icon (utterly obsolete now that Image: accepts "link=" as a parameter, but might still be in use from a few templates from existing wikis). Replacing it with a current version appears to fix whatever broke from the MW upgrade, although ultimately the {{#icon: tag should be removed from any templates or pages still using it.

I've left most existing wikis at the old version (MW 1.17) until some of these can be resolved. --Carlb (talk) 06:33, 7 August 2011 (UTC)

Updated: Most of these appear to have fixes, kludges or work-arounds at this point. There is to be a new MW version in Feb 2012, so most likely the next upgrade attempt will be not 1.19 but a 1.20alpha --Carlb (talk) 17:17, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

And why is it always alphas? Why do you not ever use stable versions? ~ Pointy.png 02:10, 15 February 2012
I think he's helping the MW people developing the newest version, browsing for errors and such, so they can bring out the beta version more quickly | Cartoonist | Spit it out (talk) | E-mail | UnMeta | 21:12, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

The servers of Uncyclomedia can sometimes have time-outs of an unknown duration. Please don't constantly ask why the servers are down on that moment. Before considering a suicide, try these things first:

  • Wait a couple of minutes. Reload/Refresh your page.
  • If it doesn't respond in a day, don't panic, take a few breaths and just write some articles offline or something.
Problems that may occur after the down-being of the servers
  • Loss of data or local uploaded images. If you want to avoid any loss, please backup your articles frequently.
  • Newly created user accounts can be vanished. These new users have to create their account again.



New or old problems in uncys after 40 floid

After 42 days of inactivity because of the breakdown of mega UnMeta servers. My report is about the same problems. For those who would not want to waste time here is a list of problems:

  1. Unable to enter any site other than the memory cache on google.
  2. The templates are still suffering problems related changes upgrade MediaWiki.
  3. Problems move a page, it is always necessary to recharge using F5.
  4. And again the coffee break, xD

In addition, there was a feeling among users of Desciclopedia, the problems with the servers will never be solved at once. Unfortunately I agree that for many years our servers have suffered colossal errors that prevented the site is operational. However, I do not know the views of other users uncyclopedias of our family would still have the confidence that these problems will be solved. Rhubella beach.jpgRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 2077 preppieditsRhubella.jpg 23:22, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

I returned from the UK a few days ago, but to give a quick response: it is known what is happening to those servers. The problems with the templates will not be fixed in the code. You simply have to change every template on every site. It is nothing else than that. It is an unthankful job, but it is the only option. The problems with the servers won't be solved at once indeed. I have read something about creating an after-all-existing money-fund, but I have no idea about that. Moving pages... well, I had a problem with the Recent Changes, where I had to disable the caching in Firefox to give (everytime I click the link) a recent page... with the recent changes. That's previousness, but though... I can access this site again, everything is slow, I cannot add anything else, so far as I can do :\ Roye7777777 ~ Talk 19:25, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
What Roye said is what we are finding now, that is, not only the problems related to old servers. These are things that we slowly because work is not lacking here. However, the speed of the server that is more important to solve. Rhubella beach.jpgRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 2077 preppieditsRhubella.jpg 23:49, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
The three main servers were moved on April 23 and put back online at the new datacentre on April 28. One of these servers ('sophia', two quad-core Opteron, our original Tyan Transport GT24 co-located server from 2007) has not worked properly after being moved; the server runs for just a second and then completely stops. I'm trying to get the datacentre to install a new power supply in that server. With one server broken, the other two servers have to handle all of the load and therefore run very slowly.
I also brought this back with me when visiting Toronto on Friday and shipped it to the datacentre today. It should be on-line by the end of the week.
It is most frustrating that this has gone on for a month now... that's a very long time, maybe long enough to edit one or even two pages on this slow site. :( I shall be very glad when this is over and one or both of these servers is brought on-line. Just one (either one) would be enough to put the sites back to normal. Carlb (talk) 21:42, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

Local upload fail

Problems with local uploading in Wikinet. I'm not sure if there are similar problems elsewhere. Any way, if you encouter these problems, upload your files to Commons. Be sure you have the interwiki "commons" transcluded in the iw table | Cartoonist | Spit it out (talk) | E-mail | UnMeta | 12:50, 25 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Now it's gone, it became "read-only". I can't create articles, I can't upload imagens, I can't register. Cthulhu.fhtagn (talk) 09:39, 27 June 2012 (UTC)
    • Fixed. Thanks! I will check later if the upload of images is allowed. Cthulhu.fhtagn (talk) 16:26, 27 June 2012 (UTC)
  • I had tried uploading a new version of an image and that much worked. Carlb (talk) 16:56, 27 June 2012 (UTC)
    • Thanks again. It seems that all other problems, like skin, were solved everywhere (not only in Wikinet). Can we celebrate the Return to Normality? Cthulhu.fhtagn (talk) 17:09, 27 June 2012 (UTC)
some text here

Chinese filenames

How can I use chinese filenames to include files? For example, [[File:天使3.jpg|thumb|right|250px|some text here]], in order to include File:天使3.jpg, does not work (MediaWiki prevents the creation of the page). Cthulhu.fhtagn (talk) 16:30, 27 June 2012 (UTC)

  • That's weird, it works here (on the current MediaWiki 1.20a) but fails there (on the old MediaWiki 1.17) with "1267: Illegal mix of collations (latin1_bin,IMPLICIT) and (utf8_general_ci,COERCIBLE) for operation '=' (roberto)". It lets me use the image there, but doesn't let me view the image description page. I'm not sure if this being still on the old version has anything to do with some of this problems? Carlb (talk) 16:59, 27 June 2012 (UTC)

192.168.0.18 é um erro de configuração.

Just unblocked this on pt:, not sure if it has appeared on ja: or others but 192.168.* is not an outside Internet address - it's the local area network address of one of the co-located servers. If it turns up in special:recentchanges that's a configuration error.

Reporting

The situation in Desciclopédia has improved greatly, but still have a few problems.

To make a single edit we need to save a thousand times till the edit goes by. Upload images successfully is a martyrdom too.

The situation is better than weeks ago, but desciclopedians still face difficult to edit comfortably.

ABDUL ALHAZRED Salah, Zakāh, Ramadan, Hajj 18:15, 29 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Are you sure it's not a problem with your connection? You have reported problems that seem to affect only you. Maybe some of the IPs you use are in some blacklists? BTW, this morning (2012-07-01) the servers were down, but I think this a "normal" monthly batuque. Cthulhu.fhtagn (talk) 15:31, 1 July 2012 (UTC)
    • Desciclopédia is off since today's (2012-07-03) morning, and UnCommons is not showing any new image. Wikinet and Malucopedia are normal. Cthulhu.fhtagn (talk) 21:50, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
      • Stop saying "I'm reporting problems that seem to affect only me". Are you blind or what!? So many topics in Desciclopédia protesting, the many erros for upload images, for edit faster, etc, etc. Desciclopedia are slow, full of bugs, off for hours... ABDUL ALHAZRED Salah, Zakāh, Ramadan, Hajj 05:28, 4 July 2012 (UTC)
        • When you reported the problems, above, that each edit required a thousand trials, I noticed that each edit worked fine in the first trial. That's why I supposed that it was a local problem, not that it was your fault, but maybe a bug in the way the servers were dealing with your IP. But it seems that since 2012-07-03, Desciclopedia is offline, UnCommons is not showing any new image, while Malucopédia, Wikinet and UnMeta are normal. So I guess it's a problem with one server, that is not affecting the other servers. Cthulhu.fhtagn (talk) 01:08, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
          • To see. But now, the site is offline for days, I can acess by pesquisa.la and edit incredibly well. ABDUL ALHAZRED Salah, Zakāh, Ramadan, Hajj 23:19, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
            • But all other adresseses, those that Google see (desciclopedia.org, desciclopedia.ws) are off. Also, UnCommons is half-crashed too, the images don't show, and images from it aren't visible in any site. Cthulhu.fhtagn (talk) 02:10, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

UnCommons and Çci is are broken

Images that were recently uploaded to UnCommons show neither in UnCommons nor in the other projects, as the example on the right show. Or does not show. Whatever. Cthulhu.fhtagn (talk) 00:19, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

Amazingly the image I carried in Çciclopédia also took issue Rhubella beach.jpgRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 2077 preppieditsRhubella.jpg 18:43, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

Delete bugged images

Right now I'm warning you that there are no conditions for UnCommons keep some images loaded in recent days by problems of errors. Many images are so buggy that there is no chance to keep them being sugerivel eliminating errors. Rhubella beach.jpgRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 2077 preppieditsRhubella.jpg 16:51, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

Back to normal?

It seems that UnCommons is back to normal. Cthulhu.fhtagn (talk) 19:37, 17 July 2012 (UTC)

The problem with images don't seens solved to me... ABDUL ALHAZRED Salah, Zakāh, Ramadan, Hajj 18:46, 19 July 2012 (UTC)

  • Things are back to normal now. Slow, but normal. Cthulhu.fhtagn (talk) 22:35, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
    • Yes! Thanks Allah, but still not perfect yet. Sometimes I need do upload a image again and again and again and again... but better than notthing. ABDUL ALHAZRED Salah, Zakāh, Ramadan, Hajj 02:41, 21 July 2012 (UTC)
er... nothing, no? Rhubella beach.jpgRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 2077 preppieditsRhubella.jpg 20:41, 21 July 2012 (UTC)

Submit in toolbar

It makes a long time that the toolbar looks like this. The three buttons (save, perview and diff) aren't appearing in Wikinet.pro's editing interface, instead, there's text. Can you guys fix it? Mgs 04:30, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

No new images in UnCommons

Satan in "The Jesus Chainsaw Massacre"

UnCommons is going through a problem, the new images don't appear, like this image that I just uploaded (thrice). Cthulhu.fhtagn (talk) 00:43, 8 September 2012 (UTC)

Pfff... :( Rhubella beach.jpgRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 2077 preppieditsRhubella.jpg 21:43, 8 September 2012 (UTC)

Can anyone help me please

Hello, I need to talk to an Uncyclomedia admin, it's about Carlb and our wiki. Can anyone please e-mail me back? --Spankart (talk) 21:23, 8 September 2012 (UTC)

I'm an administrator, what is the problem? Or rather, what wiki? Rhubella beach.jpgRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 2077 preppieditsRhubella.jpg 21:30, 8 September 2012 (UTC)
It's a bit complex, can you please e-mail me so I can tell my story privately? --Spankart (talk) 21:40, 12 September 2012 (UTC)
Look, I will not say I did not come here for help. Here is a community and this page is to report errors or server site. If what you're saying to me is a personal matter that should not be discussed here, but the discussion of the user in question.
Moreover, it is not very present here. And even when sending an email to him does not mean he will meet soon. Rhubella beach.jpgRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 2077 preppieditsRhubella.jpg 20:11, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

Spam filter

Can someone please remove that damn spam filter? Wikinet is a wiki about the Internet, how could we document facts about Internet if we can't even post a link? Mgs 19:05, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

You are linking to a whitelist. This is a list that normally allows the given arguments. Does the whitelist on WikiNet block addresses with \.ytmnd\.com? | Cartoonist | Spit it out (talk) | E-mail | UnMeta | 23:01, 24 September 2012 (UTC)
Nope, it unblock them. "ytmnd.com" was blocked, so I put this and it unblocked it. But I tried to do the same with "tumblr.com" and ohter addresses and didn't work. Mgs 18:18, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

Uncyclomedia Commons is down

...including my wiki on the same server. I don't suppose anyone was able to contact Carlb yet? Is there anything else we can do other than wait and pray? --Spankart (talk) 19:59, 25 October 2012 (UTC)

Well, the possibility is always mailing. Roye7777777 ~ Talk 16:50, 27 October 2012 (UTC)

Some images from UnCommons don't show

Some images from UnCommons aren't showing in the children project pages, for example, Dilma Roussef's picture in wikinet:1971 (safe for work) or the Czech Militia in wikinet:Give War A Chance (not safe for work). However, other pictures show, for example wikinet:Computador do século XIX (marginally safe for work) or wikinet:Sites sobre geologia (marginally unsafe for work). Cthulhu.fhtagn (talk) 22:52, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

I informed the Carlb about it yesterday for email. Rhubella beach.jpgRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 2077 preppieditsRhubella.jpg 18:17, 9 December 2012 (UTC)
I don't know what was the problem, and I don't know how to solve it. Probably it's related to case-sensitiveness of the filename. And I found a way to circumvent the bug: using a size that already exists as a thumbnail (in Dilma's image, article 1971, using 350px). Cthulhu.fhtagn (talk) 19:39, 14 December 2012 (UTC)

Also I report that this type of error happened on Brazilian Uncyclopedia. Rhubella beach.jpgRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 2077 preppieditsRhubella.jpg 14:56, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
mw:extension:RandomSelection ver 2.1.3 breaks this way under PHP 5.3, but this was immediately fixed by installing version 2.1.6 of the extension on the affected server. Is this still happening? Does refreshing the page clear it? Carlb (talk) 15:38, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

It looks like a recent upgrade to PHP5.3 broke a few extensions - this one and the EditCount/LogCount. Carlb (talk) 03:56, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
The above-mentioned problem was fixed. Thank you for handling. By the way, EditCount/LogCount have broken as told. They are used very well in Japanese Uncclopedia like this. I want it to be fixed.--Rotoryu (talk) 10:14, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
I've posted a few comments on mw:Extension:MW-EditCount#Compatibility_issues regarding the EditCount/LogCount extensions. (LogCount is modified from EditCount, which is long-abandoned code which is breaking). I still need to look at CheckSpambots and Special:Namespaces but the edit counts should now be re-enabled on most of the affected Uncyclopedias. Carlb (talk) 18:40, 10 January 2013 (UTC)

Page view count

I think it needs to be updated, because the newest pages don't have it. E.g.: nl:Vrijheid was created in October and till now it hasn't got any views, which is impossible | Cartoonist | Spit it out (talk) | E-mail | UnMeta | 19:54, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

I don't think the page counts have ever worked properly on this site; they've always underestimated the number of page views. Most large sites place MediaWiki behind some sort of cache (Squid or Varnish) and turn off the counter because MediaWiki never sees the requests unless the page isn't already cached somewhere. Carlb (talk) 17:46, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
Is there any other way to have page view statistics available? We have PopularPages, but the cache only shows a maximum of 1.000 results, which is a pity. I'm not really thinking of very concise alternatives like the WikiMedian statistics. However, it might inspire... Cartoonist | Spit it out (talk) | E-mail | UnMeta | 03:20, 24 January 2013 (UTC)

Problems with Namespaces

A page special:namespaces is not working, the page goes blank (at least in Wikimerda) (sorry for my bad English again)--187.15.140.248       Look atmy deeds Renan Jackson Flag of the USA.svg - 17:04, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

SpecialNamespaces had been broken by MediaWiki upgrades (Wikimerda has the newest MW 1.21 as it's a new wiki - others here are still on 1.20alpha). An update of the extension [2] fixes this. PHP 5.3 issues with EditCount/LogCount and CheckSpambots are fixed now, as described on those pages. Carlb (talk) 17:46, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
Note that MediaWiki expects content namespaces to be even numbers (n) and the corresponding talk pages to be the next namespace (n+1, therefore an odd number). You need to create these in pairs. Carlb (talk) 20:17, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

Checkuser reports accounts that don't exist

I was checking some accounts at Simple Uncyclopedia and, though checkuser tool reported a few accounts, I couldn't block them as apparently they don't exist. Is it a bug or the accounts were deleted somehow? Are spambots deleted?—Teles «Talk to me˱@ C˲» 18:54, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

mw:manual:removeUnusedAccounts.php deletions of spam registrations should also remove the log entry from special:recentchanges. If it doesn't do so, or deleted account names are still listed somewhere else, that would be a bug. Carlb (talk) 14:21, 23 March 2013 (UTC)
The side effect is that it may mask the problem and we would tend to believe that there is no spam happening. Thus, any local measure to stop it would not be taken.—Teles «Talk to me˱@ C˲» 06:20, 27 March 2013 (UTC)

Rollback

Marijuana tea, a holy remedy for nervousness and stress created by the ancient Incas and produced and exported by Bolivian drug traffickers.

There was a rollback in Wikimerda now recent changes are blank, special pages do not work right, you can not see stories, i can not login, I wanted to ask for it to be resolved, and would also like to ask if it's just Wikimerda accessed by http://wikimerda.org or have some other secret domain (such as that in the Wikinet http://static.uncyc.org), three days ago this happened in Desciclopédia (sorry for my bad English, Google Translate is f***)--Homero-sb.jpg Renan Jackson See the poor things what i make click here and kill a emo 20:36, 9 July 2013 (UTC)

I'm not sure what this is. I believe the websites experienced server difficulties at that time, because you mention you couldn't log in. Not being able to log in and trouble with applying specific services (like special pages) are typical symptoms of downtime. Everything works fine here with me. Are there any actions that are supposed to be shown in the recent changes log? Anyway, this is something I can't help since this is a server issue | Cartoonist | Spit it out (talk) | E-mail | UnMeta | 15:44, 12 July 2013 (UTC)
Also, make sure you refresh the pages a few times to check if the website could be down. When you notice this, write an e-mail about it and send it to [email protected] | Cartoonist | Spit it out (talk) | E-mail | UnMeta | 15:50, 12 July 2013 (UTC)
Inactivity? I edit in wikimerda every day, and the staff of Desciclopédia informed me that it is best not to edit until the problem is resolved, if not all edits will be lost during the rollback. Sometimes the site may look normal, but if you refresh the page you will see that "something is wrong". Rhubella, it will not help, do not say anything, okay?--Homero-sb.jpg Renan Jackson See the poor things what i make click here and kill a emo 16:44, 12 July 2013 (UTC)
I suggest everyone calms down, I'm doing unpaid night work for Uncyclomedia in my holiday too ;-D
I'm not very sure if I understood you well. What exactly do you mean by "rollback"? Is it the userright or do you mean something else? I don't think your edits will vanish. Just try ahead, but save your work offline. Probably the Desciclopédia staff remembered the big loss of data, but that was a long time ago. Personally, I don't believe this sort of problems are so complicated that the entire wiki needs to be reset. The only inconvenience I can see, is assumably a temporar freezing of Wikimerda because of an automate running of a maintenance script. It happens from time to time, but it's not that dramatical...
Again, I do not know what happened. I only guess what could have happened, because I'm not a technician | Cartoonist | Spit it out (talk) | E-mail | UnMeta | 01:52, 14 July 2013 (UTC)

Rollback and images with bugs

After the last backup has been noticed that the images with extension. Edited jpeg but as. Jpg errors are suffering failing to be loaded. Another serious problem is what has happened in updating pages failures observed in up to 6 different wikis (including the Desciclopédia and Desgalipedia). Rhubella beach.jpgRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 2077 preppieditsRhubella.jpg 08:34, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

Likely not a rollback. Pages and images are cached to reduce the load on the server, so an outdated version may still be being displayed. Carlb (talk) 16:50, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
Unfortunately many pages are suffering or errors in its normal size or miniature. I have to eliminate those pictures until the server is in reliable condition. Rhubella beach.jpgRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 2077 preppieditsRhubella.jpg 21:40, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
That might be because of this bug: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:CloudFlare#HTTP_purge where valid content exists on the server but an outdated version is still in distribution. Carlb (talk) 17:06, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

Can't log in (and other junk)

Short story: I can't log in to any of carlb's stuff, and there seem to be other bugs.

Long story: Earlier today (you can see at http://mirror.uncyc.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/Llwy-ar-lawr (nowiki'd out external link so I won't have to go through the captcha, which is also buggy)) I was reverting a pile of bad edits, and then suddenly stuff stopped working. I was reverting some page moves as well and often I'd have to delete the target page, and you know how you click something to delete the target page when you move it, well it didn't let me. Just didn't respond. Also wouldn't let me roll stuff back or save edits - said there was a problem with my session and it cancelled my rollbacking, and it said it lost session data when I tried to save an edit. I tried logging out, like it says to do, and I was able to save edits (but of course not delete stuff or roll it back) but when I tried to log in again it wouldn't let me - said I had cookies disabled. Now I don't have cookies disabled, and I tried logging in from several computers and it gave me the same message on all of them. I also can't log in on fr.illogicopedia.org or here, and presumably not on any of Carlb's other wikis.

en:User:Bizzeebeever has also found other bugs; when trying to access mirror.uncyc.org he saw this: http://imageshack.us/a/img836/9942/t9uo.png and when he tried to access an image, he saw this: http://imageshack.us/a/img89/2179/omda.png

I said the captcha is buggy - it won't let me go through it no matter what I do, and I'm pretty good at math.

Before all this happened, I was noticing other problems. Mainly, it was (well, still is) showing old versions of pages and refusing to refresh them; more details here: http://mirror.uncyc.org/index.php?title=User:Llwy-ar-lawr&oldid=3948157 The server sometimes times out for no apparent reason, too, showing me a message from CloudFlare about how Carlb's server is down and there's no cached page. Also, sometimes today when I was looking at the cached pages I mentioned, there would be weird code around the top of the page that looked like it had something to do with an edit toolbar (I think).

Can anyone help with this? I thought I should put it here, since it probably doesn't do anyone any good to dump it on #uncyclopedia. 99.240.218.250 01:01, 9 March 2014 (UTC)

paudurapedyja.org/wiki/Special:Recentchanges and several other sites' recent changes including kakapedia.org and fa.uncyc.org are producing a 404 error. When I go to the root of the url it says stuff about domain suspension. paudurapedyja.org also seems to redirect to be.uncyclopedia.info; would be nice if the rest of the site redirected too, if that's what you had in mind. 99.240.218.250 01:21, 9 March 2014 (UTC)
The login errors and the broken SubmitInToolbar appear to have been the result of a PHP upgrade, which I have now rolled back to the old version. I've complained to my domain registrar about the weird domain suspension error; so far, no reply. These aren't new/changed domains so they shouldn't be asking for "verification" like this. Carlb (talk) 04:03, 9 March 2014 (UTC)
I believe that the IP (99.240.218.250) in question is Llwy-ar-lawr, so I give them as a witness server problems occurred both in Desgalipedia, Çciclopédia, Desciclopédia and UnCommons as with the aggravation of not being able to upload pictures. The text that is placed in the Galician-Portuguese section was my report that should have been posted yesterday but somehow the server could not save.

Yes that was me. I can log in now, but more domains appear to have been suspended - just checked mirror.uncyc.org and simple.uncyc.org, and they're down - and I'm seeing this wiki in what I guess is the Nostalgia skin. I know sometimes when the server is stressed or something it does that, but it usually goes away when you reload the page or go to another one, and now it's just there. Also, the images are broken, for example in the signatures on this page. Llwy ar lawrlogimalpedie:en:be:ga:la:ru:sco: 22:07, 9 March 2014 (UTC)
Also I would like to know if this is somehow my fault for rolling back too many edits too fast or if something else happened. Llwy ar lawrlogimalpedie:en:be:ga:la:ru:sco: 22:21, 9 March 2014 (UTC)
The skins are on images.uncyc.org or static.uncyc.org, so breaking that domain disrupts the others. Everything seems to be back now, unless your ISP or browser still has the outdated address stored in DNS somewhere. Carlb (talk) 00:38, 11 March 2014 (UTC)
One thing is certain, the fault is not yours Lwyn however problems with the servers are becoming tragic because many are either completely down (Desciclopédia) or even lost their domain (Desgalipedia). Carlb, this problem can only be solved with a new server? Rhubella beach.jpgRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 2077 preppieditsRhubella.jpg 01:45, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

Captcha? Bah. Just use an abuse filter like ours. It's so good at keeping out the spam it even blocks some real users by accident, but since these sites generally get less traffic that shouldn't be as much of a problem for them.

Spambots

You must strike harder on the spambots. The radical measures I took on SWFTools Wiki might have contained the spambot attacks for a while, before those with FTP access updated the QuestyCaptcha.

What I did there was immediately blocking any spambot, its IP, the range block of its IP and the seven adjacent IPs. Probably I overkilled a few non-spam-bot IPs, but it worked.
