{{#logotipo:}} This is the place to report bugs. There are a lot of them going on. Go here if you want to report a bug. Do not go on IRC. Do not go to Hindleyite's talk page. Do not go on top of your roof. Some WHAT!? 19:33, 9 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)


The forum category input boxes have been malfunctioning -- now when someone tries to create a new forum topic it ends up being an article instead. Some WHAT!? (talk) (contribs) (edit count) 19:43, 9 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)

Also, a moment ago I couldn't edit anything without the whole window becoming blank. Some WHAT!? (talk) (contribs) (edit count) 19:47, 9 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)

Whenever i go to the main page on the .com one, it comes up with a message, which can be found on hindleyites talk page under the comment: to add to the list..... Also several error messages have appeared, and some times it won't let me edit. -- Ragglefraggleking Is Eating Your Bagels

Occasionally, the Forum pages show up as redlinks, or occasionally the forum pages show up but the top boxes show up as redlinks (i.e. both appear as non-existent pages) 25px-ColourfulMetalFlower.jpgMMF!talk←/→admin(:D) 20:47, 9 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)

Also, Edit Count is extremely messed up. We've essentially lost our edit counts, and all edits count as something like 1000% of the overall editing or something :P 25px-ColourfulMetalFlower.jpgMMF!talk←/→admin(:D) 20:47, 9 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)
The Math does not work right, see here. Elassint 21:07, 9 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)
@Somewhat: Hopefully, the forum boxes should be working again now, I was too lazy to fix 'em earlier :p... currently working on VFF input boxes. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 21:33, 9 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)
On the edit count thing, it worked fine for me. I still have retained my 1000 something edits? Or did you fix it up already? Also, the RC template is messed up. All it shows is gray. --Penguin-chick evil.jpg Dxpenguinman, the Penguinman ...He's e-vile! Talk Got An Idea? GAMESHOW! 10:54, 11 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)
Fracking images being replaced by ones from (e.g. Image:Bathroom.jpg). O yea, and there are redlinks in VFF voting pages. --I forgot 22:16, 11 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)
Wiki's leaking history like an African government leaks funds. Check it out: [1] vs. [2]. --I forgot 01:11, 16 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)
Images are only taken from a commons repository if there is no local copy - ie: the image wasn't copied when the wiki was moved. Uploading the desired image onto the local wiki would fix this. There were also some gaps in revision history as the downloadable Wikia backups were outdated (late Oct'2008) and the gaps had to be filled by special:export of pages from the old wiki. Most likely, if something's not here, it was never moved properly in the first place - and not merely "leaking" as you describe it. -- 01:52, 16 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)


Current reported problems with individual MediaWiki extensions on this server are:

<imagemap> Appears to be giving class 'DOMDocument' not found as an error; pages using the tag were editable but display as entirely blank. Currently disabled until the problems can be addressed.
<inputbox> The standard Wikipedia-style input box appears not to support prefix= (instead creating the new pages in mainspace) and does not check if the page already exists. In most cases, it would be best to replace <inputbox> with <createbox> for "create an article" links.
Special:Namespaces Special:Namespaces was kludged together from leftover Special:Interwiki extension code in 2006, after plans for the WikiData-style namespace editor to find its way into the main MediaWiki code somehow never materialised. This extension, which lets admins easily create new namespaces, was working well here until an additional server was added last week. It's now been acting strangely and sporadically, with customised namespaces working normally on one server and not working on a copy of the same wiki on another server in the same cluster.


Is there any chance of installing the following extensions to this wiki?

  • YouTube video <youtube> [3]
  • RSS feed <rss> [4]

I understand if they aren't compatible on this version of Mediawiki. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 16:16, 10 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)

I've turned off whatever other <youtube> extension was already installed and replaced it with Iubito. I presume the two cannot co-exist on Illogicopedia? --Carlb 20:27, 10 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)

Extension:RSS -- Error: "" is not in the whitelist of allowed feeds. max=3 is the only allowed feed.

Aha, cheers. The YouTube one might have been working before, just not on my computer. I can definitely say it's working now. Muchas gracias, c'est tres bien! -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 21:12, 10 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)

As far as I know, there are two or three different extensions with the same tag name, written by different authors. They're not forks of the same code, they're different, independent extensions. As such, individual parameters (such as width= and height=) may work differently - if they work at all - if using the same wiki page with the "other" version of the extension. For instance, Iubito uses <youtube>FileNameOfYouTubeVideo</youtube> and ScriptAlias uses <youtube> movie_url=</youtube>. The two don't mix. --Carlb 01:15, 11 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)

Looks like the Lobito one is the extension that was used on the previous Illogic and I made a lucky guess... there's one or two other small things relating to different extensions I neglected to note down but I'm sure we'll iron these out in due course as we come across them. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 20:50, 16 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)

Failed to parse (MathML with SVG or PNG fallback (recommended for modern browsers and accessibility tools): Invalid response ("Math extension cannot connect to Restbase.") from server "":): {\displaystyle Louisiana = Louisiana - NewOrleans}, no, that's not it... that's the accounting for the after-math of the calculating and ruthless Katrina.

The math to update the edit counts is:

# generate numeric userid's from user_name for registered users
UPDATE user, revision SET revision.rev_user = user.user_id WHERE revision.rev_user_text = user.user_name;

# get total edit count for each registered user and update user table
CREATE TABLE user_edits (key (user_id))  (SELECT count(*) as count, user.user_id FROM revision, user 
                                          WHERE  revision.rev_user = user.user_id GROUP BY user.user_id);
UPDATE user, user_edits SET user.user_editcount = user_edits.count where user.user_id = user_edits.user_id;
DROP TABLE user_edits;

Now to figure why the Special:Namespaces has been so ill-behaved after the latest upgrades. The <imagemap> extension also appears to be having problems. --Carlb 01:39, 10 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)


someone check this out. What can we do about the pengu insane award, the duck clan award, the dedicated user award. I am sure that these are some of your least concerns the long run this could get annoying. Just look at my user page and see what's up with their format.--Romanducky.jpg|Fonchezzz| Quacking|Smile no.jpg 00:42, 11 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)

Ok. well after fooling with this guy I fixed the format. This still doesn't explain why it got screwed up. I guess I can try this with the others.--Romanducky.jpg|Fonchezzz| Quacking|Smile no.jpg 00:50, 11 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)

It may be a good idea to check templates to ensure that missing or mismatched HTML tags are fixed. For instance, don't <font> or <span> without the corresponding closing </span> or </font> (in the correct order). The new version of MediaWiki will not close mismatched tags for you, so a <small> without the matching </small> in a signature/template can leave the entire rest of the page in which you are using it <small>rather small-looking</smell> and annoying to read. As far as I know, we have the same MediaWiki version (1.14 alpha) as Wikipedia, but if Wikia is a version behind then HTML moved here from that site may still contain formatting errors which we need to fix. --Carlb 01:08, 11 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)
I do notice one HTML error still present in the insane award: |width="80pt| would indicate that the width should be exactly eighty times that of Portugal: a problem as the servers themselves are only 19 inches wide. --Carlb 01:27, 11 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)

Huh. I noticed a bug. The front page is loopy. What happened. It says hindleyite did it... which is possible. He is fulll of surprises. it looks vandalesqe though and I dont like it!--Romanducky.jpg|Fonchezzz| Quacking|Smile no.jpg 15:20, 11 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)

Should revert that. It's blocking navigation and crashing browsers. Robomilk 15:53, 11 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)
Sumones vandalising the wiki-Look on the recent changes page. Whoever it is seems to like sum person called hayley williams. WHAT THE FECK IS GOIN ON! yeah looks like sumones hacked, but i want answers.--–Help dance.gif|TBL |Hump dance.gif 17:32, 11 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)

Oh its sorted sorry for inputtin late.--–Help dance.gif|TBL |Hump dance.gif 17:37, 11 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)

Hayley Williams[edit]

Why does she rox my sox? --Thekillerfruitcake 17:46, 11 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)

Oh everything's settled... Not really. We talked to her. She is the Avril troll. Oh and By the way, my userpage is missing still. Anyone wanna help me out?--Romanducky.jpg|Fonchezzz| Quacking|Smile no.jpg 21:52, 11 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)
Yeah ur sigs messed up an all. Wat happened?--–Help dance.gif|TBL |Hump dance.gif 23:29, 11 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)
The Hayley Williams troll struck, looks like. But CarlB appears in the process of fixing it up (this could take awhile though). Too bad the Avril troll didn't learn from last time. Simsilikesims 23:37, 11 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)
Just a few pages moved and most have been put back by now; if you can't find one, just go to your special:contributions list and see if there are any pages you've edited appearing under some stupid title. Anyone in the user groups (phantom, vampire, werewolf, sleepwalker) has access to the 'move' button to move them back. So basically, any vampire can give or take away the move button from any user now. That should be the end of it. --Carlb 23:49, 11 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)

Funky pages[edit]

My user watchlist page is for some reason redirecting to Watchlist. Also, the recent changes page is missing. simsilikesims 04:27, 12 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)

PS It seems to be fixed now. simsilikesims 21:45, 12 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)

Vanishing pages?[edit]

I noticed several pages are missing, the most prominent being Template:VFH. I first noticed this phenomenon in the total disappearance of all the ZAP shortcuts. Is something weird going on or is it just that these have not been moved? Some WHAT!? (talk) (contribs) (edit count) 22:23, 15 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)

The vote-for-feature template is {{VFF}}, not {{VFH}}. The latter was merely a redirect, which I have recreated. The ZAP links are also just redirects; they should be easy enough to fix. --Carlb 22:36, 15 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)
Never mind, I know what I'm doing wrong. Some WHAT!? (talk) (contribs) (edit count) 22:59, 15 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)

Minor wikicode display thing[edit]

Look at these links. On old wiki, the whole words would be linkified, pointing to that enclosed by square brackets. Widely used in articles for linking to, say, a singular of a word without using the more verbose [[target|name]] syntax. --Fluffalizer 21:19, 16 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)

Yes, I noticed this too. Hopefully a small inconvenience - I should think it's fixable by our wonderful IT Guy. ;) -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 21:32, 16 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)


I think most people know about this issue but I thought I'd bring it to everyone's general attention. Looooooooooads of redirects are missing, meaning IllogiGames:Invasion of Illogiland etc. are screwed for now. Only way I can see round this is fixing them manually, which is a real pain. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 18:48, 30 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)

Subtitle support for the namespaces[edit]

Doesn't seem to be working/enabled. This makes {{SUBPAGENAME}} and {{PAGENAME}} display the same thing, and breaks the link for and title on the VFF voting pages since they now include "VFH/", which ought not to be included. --Fluffalizer 11:56, 20 Ditzimber 2008 (UTC)

wfNamespaces*cache Array **retrieve Array * alias * Array *[edit]

Yeah ... it says that. --Nerd42 20:22, 30 Arche 2009 (UTC)

  • FIXED! :) --Nerd42 21:56, 15 Arply 2009 (UTC)

VFH voting pages don't link to the articles they are about[edit]

This is a really annoying problem that should be fixed but I don't know how --Nerd42 20:22, 30 Arche 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, I whined about this earlier but nothing happend. Carrots. --THE 19:18, 3 Arply 2009 (UTC)
They link to the editing page, since the actual page is shown in the VFF page itself--Silent Penguin 22:36, 3 Arply 2009 (UTC)
