Looks like it's still doing it from before, unless it stopped in the meantime. Fact that one of those is the exact same one as RM noticed, though, isn't encouraging in that regard. ~ Pointy.png 20:21, 28 January 2012
I remember I visited mwl: after Rhubella's report, the page was blank. So I see this for the first time. Probably the same problem has always been there. Nothing new then... Cartoonist | Spit it out (talk) | E-mail | UnMeta | 20:50, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

Namespace problem in Desciclopédia

In domain, it appears that when we try to acess a page with Forum: namespace, like Forum:Foo, we are redirected to a page named Descionário:Foo that doesn't exist. This problem occurs even if the Forum: page already exists, and this rendered many threads inacessible. I don't know what is making the Forum: namespace be redirected to the Descionário: namespace, but in, the Forum: namespace is still acessible as normal.

This is the only thread that can be acessed since it was created in the Descionário: namespace instead of being created in the Forum: namespace. What is happening? DARK FALLEN ANGEL Lord of DarknessHAIL SATAN 02:47, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

Rhubella selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,563 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 03:17, 18 February 2012 (UTC) was never upgraded and is still running the old MW 1.17 code. That it has a working forum: namespace when (sophia), (roberto) and desciclopé (oscar) do not indicates that Special:Namespaces is still broken in some way under MW 1.19+. (The only other example I've noted of this issue is zh-tw:, which had listed the 16 built-in namespaces on the Special:Namespaces page and was having Image: links generate error messages - fixed by removing Image: from the extra namespaces list as already built-in).
There is a claim that extension default namespaces for DPLforum are 110:/111: (forum + the useless 'forum talk'). DP has fórum on 20 and 110 is - although that has never been an issue on any previous version of the software and the choice of 110 was arbitrary. See mw:Extension_talk:DPLforum#What_if_Namespace_110_is_already_in_use_for_something_else.3F
There are two other problem extensions, extension:flash and extension:IRC (Flash is problematic as th: used it on their main page, blanking the front page as a result of the upgrade. I've removed the extension for now and will likely use OFlash instead.)
Unfortunately, most of the broken extensions are breaking with every MW version from 1.18 onward (the $wgMessageCache thing, in particular, and the Xml::hidden -> Html::hidden were both changes to core MediaWiki code that affected many existing extensions - IRC being one of them). As such, the "use the last stable MediaWiki" approach won't help as this stuff is breaking there too. That leaves this as a choice between fixing the extensions (which will have to be done for Special:Namespaces in any case), attempting to list some of the $wgExtraNamespaces directly in the config files (so that Fórum: remains on 20 even if the extension breaks) or running three versions behind (MW 1.17 instead of 1.20). --Carlb (talk) 18:15, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

Problems concerning the templates in the sacred Desgalipedia

A few hours noticed some errors in some position templates used in Desgalipedia. These templates have the code copied from Wikipedia and change their positions creates problems in the page layout.

Article 17 de agosto WP x DG.jpg

I think the change has bugged MediaWiki codes of these templates. I do not know the full extent of the problem and templates affected by the bug. At the moment I can report only on the templates for the months. I give as an example the article the date of the founding of Desgalipedia, August 17 and the positions of the original template in the Galician Wikipedia and DG. Rhubella selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,563 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 23:25, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

At Oncyclopedia, this: CLICK. A </p> appears out of nowhere on the RecentChanges. Roye7777777 ~ Talk 11:39, 19 February 2012 (UTC)
Never mind. Fixed it with an extra </center>. Roye7777777 ~ Talk 14:32, 19 February 2012 (UTC)
It looks like some versions of the position tags have been deprecated. pt:Forum:Align="center": 2005-2012 --Carlb (talk) 19:37, 19 February 2012 (UTC)
As well, collapsable menus aren't working, and things like "sighidden/sigexpand" (hover thing). Roye7777777 ~ Talk 18:48, 21 February 2012 (UTC)
I tried hovering over your sig on nl:user talk:roye7777777 and all I get are a pile of extra 7's. Isn't this what's supposed to be happening? Is there some other affected page I should look at? --Carlb (talk) 01:35, 22 February 2012 (UTC)
It seems it has been fixed. Hovering over the 7Roye should result in the replacing-appearing Roye7777777, but next to that is a bullet like •, and that element should expand as well. When I reported this, it was automatically expanded, while it should be hidden (after hovering over 7Roye), but now it is again. Also, other logo's won't align to the topleft. I think a problem with aligning at itself, looking at the disfunctioning of align="right". Roye7777777 ~ Talk 10:10, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

I think the problem may be impacting on all wikis. Yesterday I found errors in the templates up UnCommons. Another thing, yesterday had created a new template for the article The Annunciation (Fra Angelico, Florence) and she also gave defective. At first I copied the code from the DP itself, but as the correct version of them remained in the DG was left of the screen. Even modifying the template source code in wiki Galipedia kept the error. Rhubella selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,563 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 12:58, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

pt:mediawiki:common.css contains an ".infobox" style (as does wp:mediawiki:common.css), gl:mediawiki:common.css does not. gl:modelo:pintura uses class="infobox". I would not expect, therefore, to see any different result under any other MediaWiki version. Not an upgrade-related issue. --Carlb (talk) 17:17, 22 February 2012 (UTC)
Ok, so the two wikis have different MW versions. However, my thinking suggests that all Wikipedias use a MW standard in any language? Rhubella selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,563 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 21:22, 22 February 2012 (UTC)
You've misunderstood... you have to define .infobox before you can use "class=infobox". That has nothing to do with the MW upgrade. --Carlb (talk) 18:56, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
Summarized: .infobox { } makes class=infobox possible. By the way, the magic word DISPLAYTITLE doesn't accept images between brackets anymore, like {{DISPLAYTITLE:[[Image:Wiki.png]]}}, though it worked before. I should use a title remover and an positioner right now? As well for align=right, align=center and align=left (irrelevant, but meh), whom are still disfunctioning. Also, Hotcat is suddenly dead. Roye7777777 ~ Talk 14:08, 25 February 2012 (UTC)


Hotcat apparently is having problems with many other wikis. There are also reviews of failures and lack of buttons on the Desciclopédia and UnCommons Rhubella selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,563 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 17:42, 25 February 2012 (UTC)
The deprecated "align=center" tags and their alternatives are listed on pt:Forum:Align="center": 2005-2012, but DISPLAYTITLE doesn't surpise me as MediaWiki was designed for the somewhat-narrow use of DISPLAYTITLE on Wikipedia, which is mostly to display "IPod" as "iPod" if an individual article needs a title with this weird non-standard capitalisation. bugz:8394 and bugz:9941 were both ignored as "resolved - invalid" for this reason.
Not sure why HotCat would still be dead, it is part of Extension:Gadgets which is maintained and the latest version. The gadget appears, but when I click its "save" button I get a box with "0" [OK] and nothing happens. --Carlb (talk) 18:18, 25 February 2012 (UTC)
Well, UnCommons, I'm having to manually edit the categories. :( Rhubella selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,563 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 18:48, 25 February 2012 (UTC)
I'm seeing the same thing here too, checked wp:commons:Commons:Village_pump#February_22 as they were reporting issues with some gadgets under MW1.19 (which they deployed Wednesday) but no mention specifically of HotCat. --Carlb (talk) 19:42, 25 February 2012 (UTC)
Yes, but the Uncyclopedias are with this defect since the implementation of MW 1.20, or there are versions that use the version 1.19? At least I mean Desgalipedia and Çciclopédia.

Good lord, replacing EVERY HOLY ALIGN WITH A CLASS!!! ALL THE 1000+ ONES. Let there be an extention that replaces every single given word with one other, on every page where that word appears. Starts to look like slavery XC. Roye7777777 ~ Talk 12:18, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

Can someone explain to me what happened in UnCommons?

WTF? Recent changes in UnCommons only present the issues from the morning. To make matters worse I notice that the decreased number of images on the site. Here's an example. The images in tatal Desgalipedia was around 1260 and dropped to 760 images. Another thing, my edits record issues 5 and 6 August were eliminated during the change of the server. In this case, do not think it's a rollback, but some change in the system. Rhubella selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,563 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 21:22, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

«Forum» namespace

We did not ask for it. We already have «Форум» in 16/17 and no need for another forum in 110/111. If it is possible to merge them in 16/17 — would be good, if not — delete it. --This user is administrator of Ukrainian Uncyclopedia. Vox 20:51, 25 February 2012 (UTC)

Strange, that was the mediawiki that created? Rhubella selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,563 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 02:05, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

Blame this guy for hardcoding 110: into DPLforum. Not a bright thing to do. I could merge 16/17 into 110/111 by having the database move everything if you like? I've already had to do this on at least ten other wikis, the most obvious example being pt: where an existing 110:Diciónario had to be moved first. This bug had at one point made all existing forum: posts inaccessible and put all new forum threads into UnDictionary. --Carlb (talk) 03:46, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

Can't you just delete it in the list of namespaces as a bureaucrat/sysop being, or am I wrong about the easiness? Roye7777777 ~ Talk 11:16, 26 February 2012 (UTC)
I have discovered as well that the <choose><option> function is not functioning. Now, I remember there was a page on MediaWiki, an extention named RandomSelection, and wasn't that the original extention? Also, I don't know if this is to edit, but at nl:Oncyclopedia we have a part in the sidebar named "Deel dit artikel". Well, there are two social media in it, but without an image. I have added these images to my personal skin, but the same (working) code is not working when I add them in Vector.css or Common.css. I think this is a limit on editing the skin itself? Now I know that the Atom-link in the toolbox contains an image as well, but that one is located in a some sort of class, but I don't know if these two have a class as well. Roye7777777 ~ Talk 11:23, 26 February 2012 (UTC)
The «Forum» namespace is not even in the table but it is present in all pages dropdown menus. I cannot do anything to it. There is nothing in «Forum» namespace (110/111), all forum threads are in «Форум» (16/17). If all the threads will still be in Форум, I would like Forum and Форум to be merged in 16/17. --This user is administrator of Ukrainian Uncyclopedia. Vox 15:38, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

Random selection

<choose><option>cat</option><option>mouse</option><option>bird</option></choose> returns mouse

It keeps returning "bird" to me. Anyone who sees after multiple time reloading more than two different things? You can see for instance cat or mouse, but it should change after all after reloading. Roye7777777 ~ Talk 12:08, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
With "disable browser page caching" checked on the second screen of special:preferences, I get a cat and a mouse on the first two attempts... but I'd think that setting would also make pages take longer to display? --Carlb (talk) 18:13, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
A year ago, it even worked without that, but now it doesn't. Funny enough, I have disabled my cache on the Firefox-browser in general a year ago, but after disabling it now in the preferences, I do see mouse instead of bird, so then it works indeed. Though, not without, but after all. Roye7777777 ~ Talk 23:03, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
Funnier, I now keep on seeing cat. The mouse and the bird have seemingly been eaten. Roye7777777 ~ Talk 23:19, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

Extra edit buttons

For a very long time we had this script allowing additional buttons (similar to this) on toolbar when editing, but after installing new mediawiki it doesn't work any more. No changes either to the script or to MediaWiki:Common.js (where it is included directly) were made. --This user is administrator of Ukrainian Uncyclopedia. Vox 19:20, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

I understand, I have also noticed the flaws with Hotcat in Desgalipedia and UnCommons. Rhubella selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,563 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 20:06, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

There look to be complaints on wp:User_talk:MarkS/Extra_edit_buttons#Broken_after_1.18.3F, wp:Wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical)#Missing_toolbar_buttons.3F and bugz:31511 about extra edit buttons failing to load properly under MW 1.18 and later; this has been happening since October. The original author of this script is seemingly nowhere to be found. --Carlb (talk) 01:38, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

So, there is no way to fix it? --This user is administrator of Ukrainian Uncyclopedia. Vox 22:27, 5 March 2012 (UTC)
Perhaps you should contact the folks on about it (try to reach someone on IRC #mediawiki) and explain the problem, so they can do something with it for a MW beta version. Or, try copying the source code and paste it into you personal /monobook.js | Cartoonist | Spit it out (talk) | E-mail | UnMeta | 14:35, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
This seems the same thing, and works for me, but maybe it is because I work in monobook, but this should work in vector as well... or not? Roye7777777 ~ Talk 15:20, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
No, this is normally working for me. Weird? Roye7777777 ~ Talk 15:21, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
Proving, here, in vector. Roye7777777 ~ Talk 15:22, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
Though, Hotcat is appearing, but isn't categorizing because it errors every category and names it as nonexistent. Roye7777777 ~ Talk 15:37, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
Are you referring to HotCat or to the extra edit buttons? HotCat is still working on en.wikipedia (which recently got MW 1.19) and breaking here; the extra edit toolbar buttons are breaking both here and there (with a bug already open, so the people do know that things are being loaded in a different order now - possibly as part of the ResourceLoader in 1.18+ - breaking things). Carlb (talk) 18:48, 6 March 2012 (UTC)


On Oncyclopedia, there is an extension, <youtube>. The old "object"-embedding code worked, but the new iFrame embedding-usage refuses to work. With new video's, they don't work anymore, and aren't embeddable. Is there maybe an update for that extension available, or anything else? Roye7777777 ~ Talk 22:23, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

In other words, doesn't work, while does. Though, in its current form, video's, other sites than YouTube, like Dailymotion etc. can be embedded with this code as well because it supports flash. Roye7777777 ~ Talk 22:31, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

Which pages are broken? I did look at nl:Gebruiker:Roye7777777/Hello but it looked to be normal. I don't know if there is an update for that specific extension (the author's site linked in nl:special:version looks pretty blank) but there is a long list of mw:Category:YouTube extensions available - unfortunately with differences in syntax which may make them not perfectly interchangeable. If it's just one URL in the code which needs changing, that may be possible without needing to switch to another extension as this stuff is open source. I'd need to know which extension you intend to switch to or which URL you want changed? --Carlb (talk) 05:57, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

For example: this. The description tells. By the way, this time has Oncyclopedia, and now I see UnMeta as well, a very long loading time, and the skin breaks continuely into Printversion or a very simple form. It seems that a user cannot upload an image because of this, but uploading-problems are as far as I know not an issue... Roye7777777 ~ Talk 12:36, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
To answer the question about the plugin as well, the version we use, is from a page that I found a few years ago, implemented when we had server-access. This page is indeed blanked and not available, and because of that probably out of date. This "thing" makes .swf files work as well surprisingly, but though, in the link that I gave to Gebruiker:Roye7777777/Slooppagina#Videaux should explain the problem. Maybe is replacing with a widely used version from MediaWiki an option, however I hope that the parameters will be shortened with only a video code instead of the full URL. Roye7777777 ~ Talk 12:43, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
I heared from someone, and discovered by myself that some images won't upload because the map /b/b9 (I don't know exactly) could not be created. Weird? Roye7777777 ~ Talk 14:48, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

To come with a version we could use, I think FramedVideo seems a good one to me, though, I have no idea if that is a good one (it says stable, but though). If not, Extention:Widgets with e.g. Youtube and iFrame would do it as well. Roye7777777 ~ Talk 15:09, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

What's up, Doc? 2


I really wonder what happened here, since the seven days that you can not edit in a few hours on any site. To make matters worse, the loading of images is very slow and the same image reaches be loaded two times with an interval of time. The problem has happened more in the DG and UnCommons. Rhubella selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,563 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 04:05, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

It's here still going on as well, loading slowly and the skin that keeps on loading half in the print-version or not at all. I remember also that everything (Oncyclopedia, Unmeta, sub-sites) was down at my birthday. Weird. Though, so far I haven't experienced that for that day because I was too busy with waking up at 4:30am because my alarm-clock was a son of a duckbill because it was behaving in an hour too far, having a contest all day long (say: nearly 6 hours long photoshopping without a dinner-pause), letting my ears surviving the 110 decibel brainless monotone noise in the afterparty and after homecoming directly getting in a REM-coma. Roye7777777 ~ Talk 17:21, 17 March 2012 (UTC)
The worse thing is that the spam bots keep attacking the wikis, they aren't hindered by those blackout periods. Maybe it's better to put all sites in read-only mode until things get back to normal. Cthulhu.fhtagn (talk) 19:09, 17 March 2012 (UTC)
I managed to reverse and banish all the spambots that attacked fo.ikkepedia, however the site with the highest number of injuries and the Croatian version, where there are attacks since late February. Rhubella selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,563 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 22:45, 17 March 2012 (UTC)
We have done it already to set the site in read-only. Not very profitable for editors, but for sites whom are a target for spam and aren't very busy (let's say, other unknown people edit the site as well) is it a logical solution. However, as you see at Neciklopedija, all spammers are registered users, so just a restriction for anon-users won't make the difference. And, only admin-editting isn't very helpful though for users, but until this is exorcised (very few are edited regularly), it seems a necessary measure. Roye7777777 ~ Talk 12:43, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
To be honest, I had to Henning reported on the situation in fo.ikkepedia occurred a few days and when I was visiting reversed spambots uncys other, especially the younger ones noticing some attacks (actually few). However, I was surprised with the amount of vandalism that occurred in our sister Croatian.

Erratic behaviour

It started about two weeks ago, and it's still going on. It seems like the servers are in erratic behaviour, not showing the thumbnails and even suppressing some images. "Recent changes", for example, shows a misformatted page in UnCommons. Cthulhu.fhtagn (talk) 18:49, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

The css of MediaWiki seems missing. What you see right now is a raw html version. The most assumable reason is that the file path to the stylesheet is pointing to the wrong place. This means Carlb could have moved the directory while running a maintenance script or something. I do not know for sure, nor can I fix it | Cartoonist | Spit it out (talk) | E-mail | UnMeta | 13:50, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
The biggest problem is that all uncyclopedias are escaping with the same problem only Illogicopedias (I think, since we only checked the Brazilian version) and Wikinet.

Another point, I believe it is inadvisable to load images during the repair place a rollback. No image can be viewed with this problem and Skin with those being charged may be lost.

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

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.

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 selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,563 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 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)

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) 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.

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)

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 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)

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)-- Renan contributions - Talk! 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)

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...

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 selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,563 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 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 selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,563 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 21:40, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
That might be because of this bug: 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 (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 or here, and presumably not on any of Carlb's other wikis.

en:User:Bizzeebeever has also found other bugs; when trying to access he saw this: and when he tried to access an image, he saw this:

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: 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. 01:01, 9 March 2014 (UTC)

The bit about caching pages seems to have been covered in the previous section. 01:03, 9 March 2014 (UTC) and several other sites' recent changes including and are producing a 404 error. When I go to the root of the url it says stuff about domain suspension. also seems to redirect to; would be nice if the rest of the site redirected too, if that's what you had in mind. 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)

Yes that was me. I can log in now, but more domains appear to have been suspended - just checked and, 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-lawr (talk) 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-lawr (talk) 22:21, 9 March 2014 (UTC)
The skins are on or, 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).

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. Llwy-ar-lawr (talk) 23:43, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

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.

Japanese Uncyclopedia is in trouble

Sorry,but I'm weak in English. So I might have become strange English. Please understand.

Japanese Uncyclopedia is freezing when we try to view the special page on some browsers.For example,Special:RecentChanges,Revision history of "Another" and more. They aren't accessible in Safari and OperaWiki.(there may be several other.)The following is the state of the bug in iOS.

  1. Initially, a state of Loading forever. (A state in which the gear continues around in circles)Therefore, the freeze does not seem to still at this point. However, it is not accepted at all operations to such as the address bar in Safari and "back" button, or "Bookmarks" button.
  2. After returning to the home screen by pressing the Home button and launch Safari again, Safari frezees, it is forcibly terminated. Then, the screen returns to the home screen.

You might not know what I'm saying, but please understand that I do not know well what's going on too.By the way, the above-mentioned problem in Chrome and Safari on OS X Lion does not occur.

This trouble was report in here five months ago, but we don't know why still. Can you tell me how to resolve?--Missing340 Talk/Log/Count 23:01, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Can't edit talk pages

Due to some bug, I can't edit, nor delete user talk pages. Even thought I see lots of spammers creating it. Does anybody know the reason?—Teles «Talk to me˱@ C˲» 22:40, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

I can't edit the talk page of my beloved Cthulhu.fhtagn in Wikinet, and that breaks my heart. Mgs (talkthings to revert) 08:10, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

Confirmation Email won't send

I want to change my email for use in Uncyclopedia Thailand. But I didn't receive any confirmation mail yet. --Warofdefeat (talk) 11:39, 13 October 2014 (UTC)

Serves problem again...

I wonder what is really going on with this server because since last week has presented different problems, for example, problems logging in, the box with the editing buttons disappear between editions and the fall login or problems with when thumbnail images are?

What actually happens this server. If edit logged in can not load images, the button bar does not appear and have to edit manually; if anonymously edit the captcha aborts any issue, you can not create new articles. If you do make a backup at once, is absurd to edit these days while watching a lot of spambots usually through without doing anything in UnMeta / UnCommons.

The funny is how to display in the japanese uncyclopedia

In the Japanese version Uncyclopedia, we can get the problem occurs. It "MediaWiki: Common.css" is that is not functioning. For example, a link to the user page of the administrator did not become bold, may not be displayed logo in the header of the main page, etc. The impact extend to the variety. Do not stomach those who can someone solve this problem? We are waiting reply.--Missing340 Talk/Log/Count 10:51, 17 February 2015 (UTC)


Ahhh.. The joy of mass-blocking spambots with lynx... (not here: in UnCommons). Cthulhu.fhtagn (talk) 22:54, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

Servers broken in offline again

It is unfortunate but I have to report the number of problems that are happening on the server and that no longer seem to end here.

Since the 18th (two days ago) I have been reported to the constant Carlb server falls but it seems that the problem persists. The last time that happened such a crisis response was a problem in the program that operated in Oscar. I wonder what the reason is the constant server outages that unfortunately make it impossible to do anything: from uploading images to create or edit articles desirably. It's really absurd I (and many users, here in Brazil as an example) that are bound to lose a holiday with a server unusable.

I wonder if we should not discuss this subject from time to sponsor the purchase of one or two good use of servers and not a second-hand break without any reason. The most absurd it is to see spambots vandalizing the best way possible without anyone being able to solve anything because of a garbage server, letting them put more garbage yet.

PS:This with the aggravating factor:
  • Can not create new articles
  • Not being able to edit without the damn captcha disturb all
  • Not being able to upload images
  • Not being able to log out and log
  • Can not log in

Pffff... That is, I have to use the irony here writing an email for you than using in an article, either in the Wiki or Desgalipedia. And now the server resolves play to let one or two wikis online while others are at worst. Have zapping 4 times the sequence DP, Desgali, UnMeta and UnCommons. :( Rhubella selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,563 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 03:12, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

But Desgalipedia still having trouble...

It is rather unfortunate when you see that in two days I edit pretty much the servers continue to break as the spambots make your edits without anything to solve as that. Frankly wonder why buying a used server that lives causes problems. Rhubella selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,563 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 23:20, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

Extended editing toolbar (uk:)

We have had extended editing toolbar similar to this for a long time using this code (or at least its older version). Since the MediaWiki version update to 1.20 alpha the code stopped working, and with many different attempts I still found no way to return the buttons. What should the proper code be to return this extended toolbar? --This user is administrator of Ukrainian Uncyclopedia. Vox 00:57, 14 June 2015 (UTC)

Answer from gl:

First of all I would like to apologize to return to its previous edition even because of the problem be solved. Well, this kind of problem has to do with some flaws server which in recent times has given severe cases of malfunction.

For now, we found a temporal solution through using the old code (see example below) for the buttons as a gadget for individual choice of users. In this way there is hopefuly less effort for the server to load the buttons, because now it will not have to load them for every single IP contributor.
/* Example code for extra button */
 if (mwCustomEditButtons) {
//Redirect button
   mwCustomEditButtons[mwCustomEditButtons.length] = {
     "imageFile": "", 
     "speedTip": "Перенаправлення", 
     "tagOpen": "#Redirect [[", 
     "tagClose": "]]", 
     "sampleText": "назва сторінки"}
