MediaWiki upgrade

Updated the Wiki software to the most recent version (1.17.0) and enabled file caching, let me know if this causes problems for you! This step was seriously motivated by the fact that our hosting company had shut us down today due to causing a too high workload on the server :-/

--Ermabwed 16:58, 31 May 2011 (CDT) Update: As you might have noticed, we had some more trouble of the same sort, however, it looks like we're getting there in terms of acceptable resource usage. I've noticed some things not looking quite as they're supposed to. If you find stuff, please report (possibly with solution ;)) them in the forum. Thanks! (Hmm, where is the editing thingies bar?)

  • Ok, I think this is at the new shost :) --Ermabwed 23:07, 25 October 2011 (CEST)

SVG images

Hi, is there a possibility to upload svg graphics? I have a source svg here for Attributes.png Attributes.png, but I can't upload it through the normal upload dialog. Will the possibility of svg images possibly be added?

Well, I haven't really looked into that at all, I'm sure it would be possible. What I'd like to know is whether all up to date/common browsers support this before going into it though.
--Ermabwed 20:01, 16 March 2009 (UTC)
They don't need to. At least the mediawiki plugin/module/whatever used by wikipedia renders the SVG into png internally and just shows the png on the article page. See for example [1], the only drawback would probably be that the server has to render each svg image once and keep it in some buffer
--Andalan 11:54, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
I see, found out how it's done etc. The server has the default converter installed, unfortunately it's also among the worst possible (slow and buggy, according to Mediawiki - talking about ImageMagick here). If you have something better at home, it might be best to convert at home for now and it should be possible to share the file by ways of an attachment to a forum post.
--Ermabwed 17:46, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
Hmm, ok, will try to get a forum account now, and then cross-link the svg once I've posted it there. Thanks for trying!

After the recent onslaught of spam-bots registering I added a captcha extension to the wiki, which requires some random input upon character creation (and possibly some other actions as well, let me know if you encounter them were you don't want them). --Ermabwed 15:17, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

Update: I updated the captcha extension today and switched to user defined questions, which a bot won't be able to answer as easily. Currently there's only one question, so if you got some good ideas for questions that newbies to the game can answer as well (or get help in game for), let me know (here, forums, email). Thanks. --Ermabwed 11:19, 3 June 2011 (CDT)


Is there intentionally no reference to Bruno and Garis in this wiki? Barryc 14:07, 27 June 2011 (CDT)

  • I have no idea, it's a wiki, so go ahead and add Bruno and Garis :) Ermabwed 12:40, 6 October 2011 (CDT)
