These are poorly-translated from ja:Forum:バグの報告」の版間の差分. I presume they are glowing reviews praising the MW 1.31 upgrade, which is not yet deployed on all wikis on this server, but which is already active on ja: pt: zh-tw: meta: commons: and a few others:

  • It seems that editing contents of and are not synchronized from about 25th October 2018. It seems that the database changed from MySQL to MariaDB ( remains as MySQL as before). It is a memorized division state that is not memory loss. Depending on Mr. Carlb's trend, please be aware that either record or log may be lost. If possible, please go to only. When posting an article, we recommend that you back up to your own storage. - Someone Sunday, October 28, 2018 20: 42 (JST)

A few wikis (including ja: and commons:) were moved to a new database server sometime between 05:00-08:00 UTC 25 October. The sites were taken offline during the move, to avoid content being inadvertently posted to the old database. If there's anything that needs to be special:exported from the old server, please let me know - the edits are all still there and could be copied to the new server if needed. This is specific to those few wikis and shouldn't affect anything else. Carlb (talk) 06:22, 29 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Name space change request: It seems that all Uncyclopedia namespaces have changed to アンサイクロペディア namespace due to the renewal (?), So the main page and the left toolbar (?) Are all red links. Uncyclopedia: Unable to see the community portal Uncyclopedia: I had a hard time to know that it would be seen if it was a community portal. In general, since the general user can not edit the toolbar, I'd like to ask for updates, but may I redirect the template of the main page (eg uncyclopedia: excellent article) as a provisional measure? (Additional notes) Forum: Please also see if the namespace died again. Also, I will let you know that the signature time will remain UTC even if you set it again. - Schwarzdrum.png Schwarz · Talk · Editcount Monday, October 29, 2018 00: 51 (UTC) Add / postscript.

I've changed $wgSitename for ja: from 'アンサイクロペディア' back to $wgSitename='Uncyclopedia'; this looks to have removed the worst of the red links. I've also changed the default timezone to São Paulo for pt: Taipei for zh-tw: and Tokyo for ja: Carlb (talk) 06:22, 29 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Various things seem to be occurring with the version upgrade of MediaWiki. - 2nd-player (talk) Monday, October 29, 2018 11:32 (JST)
    • Mobile View Introduction
    • The behaviour of DPL has changed a bit
    • {{#icon:}} does not work
    • logotipo abolition → It seems like an alternative that is going to be replaced but it does not seem to move
mw:extension:icon is obsolete; {{#icon:}} only provides functionality which is already built into MW, ie: [[Image:...whatever...jpg|link=target_page]]
{{#logotipo:}} is a bit more annoying as its replacement, #setlogo from mw:Extension:LogoFunctions, is breaking as of MW1.31; it's not just Desciclopédia or Ansaikuropedia; mw:Extension talk:LogoFunctions indicates that independent wikis (such as Absurdopedia, ru:) are seeing the same issues as soon as they upgrade to MW 1.31. No idea if there's a fix but a bug report is open at
  • From the Uncyclopedia namespace, if you go forward to any page → main page, that main page will become an unkey pedia name space for some reason. Maybe I have not fixed it yet? I tried to link to the main page from ja:テンプレート:運営関連文書 - template: operation related document]], but it has become an Uncyclopedia namespace. Maybe my way of doing things is wrong, so how can I have a professor? - Do you want to eat? What? Monday, October 29, 2018 12: 57 (JST)
I'm not sure about this... if I go to the main page on Ansaikuropedia, it looks normal.
The #icon: tags look replaceable, the #setlogo issue looks to be a more difficult annoyance to resolve. The mobile version, because the site is behind Cloudflare, has to be on a separate subdomain instead of allowing MediaWiki to attempt to autodetect mobile browsers - so instead of There are still more of these mobile domains awaiting creation and there are still quite a few wikis on the old MW version which will need to be switched. I shall likely need to hold off on changing anything on as it depends on some outdated extensions which may or may not work, but should be able to upgrade all of the others eventually - most likely moving any inactive projects to instead of keeping them as separate domains.
Are there any other bug report threads open yet? I looked at pt: and didn't find one active, I haven't checked every wiki. Perhaps this thread should be used as one main list of whatever's broken after the upgrade? Carlb (talk) 06:22, 29 October 2018 (UTC)

Found one more bug:

  • VisualEditor is not configured correctly; I get "Error loading data from server: apierror-visualeditor-docserver-http-error: (curl error: 7) Couldn't connect to server. Would you like to retry?"

A bug report thread is open at pt:Forum:Alguém reparou que houve mudanças no Vector?

  • A few things appear to have been moved in the user interface, which may affect gadgets like Truthcode.js (which appears to monitor Special:RecentChanges)
  • Domains which are still on the old MW1.25 are reporting errors when deleting articles from the new database: Função: WikiPage::doDeleteArticleReal : Erro: 1054 Unknown column 'ar_text' in 'field list' (lixao)
  • also are having MANY problems now. Blank pages, people being randomly deslogged from their accounts, bad updating (people edit but can't see on the pages the update of their modifications on the articles). In some cases, is caching badly outdated data.

mw:Extension:KeyCAPTCHA is still breaking in various odd ways as its MW extension code hasn't been updated since MW 1.18 and calls multiple functions which have been deprecated and removed. See mw:Extension talk:KeyCAPTCHAKeyCaptcha is still calling functions which were deprecated in MW1.21 and my earlier comments on KeyCaptcha breaking on MW 1.27+ for a better idea of how broken this has become.

..and then there's this: was hiding revisions; exporting and reimporting the entire uncyc-meta database seems to have fixed that.

And by the way, not only me, but many sysops just can't delete pages using And using is not effective since the page is blank or else you are disconected and then unable to delete what you want. ABDUL ALHAZRED Salah, Zakāh, Ramadan, Hajj 01:31, 2 November 2018 (UTC)

Using does work, if you don't have any calls to Truthcode.js (or other scripts that call functions that no longer exist) in your user:../vector.js and user:../monobook.js pages. It looks like any special:gadgets from the old MediaWiki are broken (see mw:ResourceLoader/Migration guide (users)) so pt:especial:gadgets doesn't even try to load Truthcode or anything else in MW 1.31. If you include the source for these gadgets manually from userspace, Chrome/Chromium browsers will halt with an error and a blank screen. That doesn't mean that everyone else is seeing the blank screens; the rest of us seem to be able to delete pages (but may have none of the 'gadgets' working at all). I have no idea if there's an updated version of Truthcode, as almost no one outside of Desciclopédia (or other Português-Brasil projects on the same servers) appears to be using it.
It looks like the removal of functions like addOnloadHook() from the new MediaWiki versions is going to break a lot of pt:mediawiki:common.js functions which provide little things like the <username> tag or the collapsible templates. These will need to be rewritten. Carlb (talk) 05:48, 4 November 2018 (UTC)

Always take a look here:

Where users are giving feedback about errors.

A new problem. Templates like these: are not working in only in

Just to inform, templates like above uses this comand here:

Thanks ABDUL ALHAZRED Salah, Zakāh, Ramadan, Hajj 16:44, 16 November 2018 (UTC)

2 months have passed and absolutelly nothing was done to restore which remains as a blank page when we login. ABDUL ALHAZRED Salah, Zakāh, Ramadan, Hajj 23:13, 10 January 2019 (UTC)

Just check out Forum:blank page error on where users are giving feedback. Nobody is fully satisfied and each user has its particular errors, since only registered users and sysops are having trouble with the blank page for example.

A bug report thread is open at Forum:O que aconteceu com os namespaces in Wikimerda. Rhubella selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,434 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png

As reported in the local help forum] on Wikimerda the page with the most problem is Special:Userrights. Rhubella selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,434 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 01:31, 22 November 2018 (UTC)


Hello, I'm having problems lately with the ability to delete and hide, which is not working. I'm trying to eliminate junk and hide conversations made by an IP that put malicious forums in the thread, already reversed, but not succeeding in eliminating their conversations. Dragomaniaco (talk) 01:38, 3 November 2018 (UTC)

Malucopédia has suffered, until that moment the problems of:

  • Errors when accessing the privilege page, with pages disappearing. (The same problem is presented in Wikimerda)
  • There are numerous incompatible extensions
  • And multiple image upload failures

In addition, RadU asked me to return the skin Monobook in Malucopédia, because there are several complaints with the use of Vector. Rhubella selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,434 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 01:21, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

Which page is the "privilege page"? Do the issues appear in Firefox or just in Chrome? Which extensions are incompatible? (I know #logotipo is broken, are there others?) Are the images failing to upload, or just failing to resize as thumbnails? Carlb (talk) 08:25, 12 November 2018 (UTC)
This type of error in logotipo is also catching on Desciclopédia and Desgali. Rhubella selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,434 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 19:49, 18 November 2018 (UTC)
Up to the present time the following extensions that do not work are
  • Thuthcode: In Desciclopédia and Wikimerda (?)
  • Hotcat: Desgalipedia (dead)
  • Mobile version: So far, none of the wikis have any problems. I was able to edit with ease on Desgali, although I can not directly load the images. Meanwhile, there are no reports of complaints in Desciclopédia. Only Wikinet has faults failing to enter the site as if it were offline.
  • Skin: Wikimerda and Malucopédia presented problems in monobook/vector skin versions.
  • Spambots: Some wikis report back from spambots attacks in Wikinet.

Vandals take advantage of the confusion to attack smaller wikis. As it happens in Simple Uncy and Çciclopédia. Rhubella selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,434 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 20:45, 18 November 2018 (UTC)

Images upload in Desgali an UnCommons

At the moment, I noticed problems loading images in Desgali and UnCommons.Rhubella selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,434 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 13:49, 29 October 2018 (UTC)

I tried uploading an image to demonstrate a problem with the template:País, but the server no longer accepts .png.
Is this all .png files, or just files with Unicode characters in the name? Carlb (talk) 05:19, 30 October 2018 (UTC)
Well, I changed the name a little bit and managed to load. How can you see yourself?. It seems to me that the image can not be shown here. Rhubella selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,434 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 05:51, 30 October 2018 (UTC)
If I can't include commons: images with Unicode titles into the individual wikis, that's bad and ja: for one will not be amused - even if these images can still be uploaded locally. Carlb (talk) 07:05, 30 October 2018 (UTC)

Carlb, truthcode does not work in DP. Rhubella selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,434 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 14:45, 31 October 2018 (UTC) (Got a reply by sending a message to Will Bill on facebook)

I see that the mobile version of Desgalipedia does not present problems but I find fair problems in the derived templates of the Modelo Infobox are having problems of position being left instead of being on the right, not that I care about the political opinion of the templates which would render unfeasible a forum on the same subject presented a few years ago. Rhubella selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,434 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 13:58, 2 November 2018 (UTC)

It might be worth checking other wikis that use some form of infobox (if you can find one that has a simple box which doesn't rely on Wikidata) as newer MediaWiki versions tend to be more sensitive to small errors in a page's HTML code.
You got a reply about truthcode? Did it say whether there was a version of it for MW 1.31.1 yet? The version currently on DP and other pt-br: wikis here is breaking; either Mediawiki doesn't try to load any of the gadgets from earlier versions, or including Truthcode.js from a user's User:.../vector.js actually breaks in Chrome/Chromium browsers so that the user just gets a blank page. Carlb (talk) 17:41, 3 November 2018 (UTC)

Unfortunately not for both cases. I believe that only Desgali/Çci imported the Wikipedia Infobox and in the case of thuthcode only Desciclopédia uses it. Another thing, I have a problem reported in Malucopédia where I will describe it above. Rhubella selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,434 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 01:15, 8 November 2018 (UTC)


What happens is grotesque failures including maintaining the old domain ( on Google.

The server of mobile.desgalipedia is offline. Or you can not find the mobile version of Desgaliedia. Rhubella selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,434 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 13:12, 23 November 2018 (UTC)

That should be which looks fine to me. Carlb (talk) 17:20, 23 November 2018 (UTC)
The big problem is that Google itself sabotages the search by targeting the old domain. Rhubella selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,434 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 03:10, 25 November 2018 (UTC)

Single Log-in

I Know that's not the main subject of this thread, but does Uncyclomedia will get an Central Auth (Or meaning: One account for all Uncyclopedias) or it's still impraticable since (Like I've seen in other projects outside UnMeta) the same access in one project is given to another?

I would like to discuss some problems found in Brazilian wikis

Over the past week, the Desciclopédia's administrator Alhazred has reported problems encountered on his server and due to his delay in attending even a forum topic on a serious problem among Ansaikuropedia users, he was forced to ask CartoonistHenning for help without knowing that he himself is absent for more than a year.

I took advantage of the last days to do some editions in the other sites (Malucopedia, Wikimerda and Wikinet) and according to conversations with the local administrators and analyzing the problems described by Desciclo and using examples in those same wikis I can give a report of the problems in the forum.

I understand in a way that we are not able to attend because in recent weeks Carlb has not given us any response and to make matters worse there were 2 parallel events that turned my attention away from the site: a crisis between users in Ansaikuropedia and a problem of vandalism in Psysklopedin which urgently needed intervention from me and from Norwegian users.

Well, taking advantage of the fact that I have the exclusive weekend to resolve these issues since 3 weeks I will make this report of problems and facts organized, in addition I came to doubt about a problem arose in Desgalipedia. Well, let's analyze:

Attention, some examples will be collected in the Brazilian wikis and Desgalipedia, my natal wiki for comparative tables. An important note, as I can not edit in the Desciclopedia because it is banned, I will only cite the complaints and observations given in the local forums. Other cases, I will transcribe the data and examples.

Blue Background

I tried to load this reproduced image in this DP forum, however the servers always give problems in the hour that is needed.

Really analyzing this topic about Blue Background caused me a certain strangeness when realizing that neither the Desciclopedia nor some wikis that copied some concepts did not adhere to the changes that UnMeta was forced to do since Nonciclopedia insisted on promoting some changes to enter the Uncyclomedia.

This image draws us to the attention when realizing that during the change of our version of MediaWiki to 1.31 most of the Uncyclopedias and wikis changed its background of the blue to the white (citaded exemples Malucopédia, Wikinet and Desgalipedia), whereas Desciclo and Wikimerda maintained their blue background.


MediaWiki:Common.js has many of the obsolete or even inoperative functions with the MW 1.31 reform. The complaints became a rosary of forums in the DP. All other wikis have MediaWiki:Common.js different from each other and there is no way to know who has similar problems, and who has them.

Truthcode and Hotcat

According to this forum, The descíclope truthcode has presented problems in the 2 domains most used by Desciclo ( and Either they do not work or they do not appear respectively. Only Wikimedia uses the truthcode imported from Desciclo, also presenting problems.

In the case of Hotcat, there is no use in Desciclopedia. And does not seem to work in Malucopedia and Desgalipedia


Commented on the local forum of Wikimerda. No longer exists in any of the Brazilian versions and Desgali. Also if you try to create a message appears that you requested an invalid special page. And that it can only be found in Special:SpecialPages.

Google Chrome

: Desciclopedians users complain that they can not enter the site if they are using this browser. Malucopédia and Wikinet mobile version suffered the same problem.

Usuario:Filtro de abusos


Recently I blocked a Swedish ip that attacked Desgalipedia and one of the vandalism was just that page. On occasion, I not only deleted this page but blocked this account, but a mystery came to me. The check user did not find any sharing and this user appears as existing, of course if I type User:ABCDE will appear the message that the account was not created. Just for research I found the same situation in Desciclopédia and now I was afraid of this ghost.

This kind of problem came up 10 years ago and I was surprised when a new extension has a great chance of repeating it.

Well, I believe those are the actual mistakes. Any news I'll go over here. Rhubella selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,434 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 23:40, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
