so everytime i tried to upload a new version of a file, it mysteriously logged me out in the file page. clicking the "log in" button won't do anything. tried to trick the system, but it still looks the same after i returned from the upload page. using the purge command also didn't do anything. i checked but it looks like the file was still the same. it happened to me twice. why did this happen and how to ix it?

Well, that's a common problem in Uncyclomedia wikis. Here's a manual I follow when I want to upload a new version of an existing file:

  • Clear your browser's cache
  • Log in from the Main Page (of your wiki, obviously)
    • If you are a administrator and are planning to edit the Main Page of your wiki in the current session, log in to a page that you do not currently plan to edit
  • Go directly to the Special:Upload of your wiki by the end of sidebar
  • Follow the protocol presented by the page to upload a file
    • If it doesn't work, try again
      • If it doesn't work again, try infinitely another hour/day
  • Wait a few minutes/hours/days for the slow server of this foundation to make the update
  • Done! The file you uploaded a new version of is updated!
    • If not, try again another day :-P

I hope my tips solve your problem. - Brazil! JPLSilva 15:26, 30 June 2020 (UTC)
