Star Trek Timelines:Admin noticeboard

The Admin noticeboard is one way through which users can notify Administrators of issues needing administrative attention. While users are welcome to directly contact specific administrators (especially if they are seen to be active), posting here can be an easier and quicker way of ensuring that at least one admin will notice an issue and respond to it promptly. Remember to sign (using four tildes: ~~~~) when posting an issue.

Before posting an issue here, please consider the following:

  • This page is for reporting wiki issues. Please post discussions on the talk page.
  • Post only issues that require administrative action, i.e. blocking vandals, protecting pages, restoring deleted pages etc.
  • Do not post deletion requests here. Deletion requests should be made by adding {{delete|reason for deletion request}} to the top of the target page, which will then automatically mark the page as a candidate for deletion.
  • Do not post issues regarding content disputes. Try making a request for comment instead.
  • Mediation requests between users should only be made once a resolution could not be reached between users.
  • For issues regarding the use of this wiki, please see MediaWiki's help page

In case of vandalism, posting about it here is low priority. Revert it first, anyone can do so. If the vandal created a new page, tag it for deletion. Assume good faith and consider leaving a message on that user's talk page to explain the reason. Post here only if the user has made several disruptive edits and/or persists despite a warning. Always avoid a revert war with the vandal; it is far better to wait until an admin has a chance to intervene. If a user must be reported here, please use {{user}}, preferably as the topic subject/headline.

Current Issues

Diplomacy link not loading this link keeps showing error message "[3e245009d457ac90e5204ae2] 2021-08-20 09:36:40: Fatal exception of type "MWException"" ~~Verde 77~~ Verde 77 (talk) 04:41, 20 August 2021 (CDT)

This page is too long. I do not have time to fix it, but increased the limit to comment out the page. It needs to be split into subpages (A-M N-Z, by stars, or something like that.) Titantalk 22:18, 3 September 2021 (CDT)

new Resourceful collection not working

The resourceful collection doesn't appear in characters with the resourceful trait Dor99alon (talk) 18:46, 16 September 2021‎ (CDT)

First, please sign your posts. You can sign your posts using ~~~~ to autofill your signature. As far as the collection, I'm not going to make any changes to the template; however, I suspect that {{CollectionInfoBox/Work}} just needs to be updated for the Resourceful trait/collection. Titantalk 02:47, 18 September 2021 (CDT)
I have absolutely no idea what you just said. All I know is that the collection doesn't appear in the characters, no idea how to fix it or what to do about it. If someone wants to fix it, cool. If not - nothing I can do about it. Dor99alon (talk) 03:28, 18 September 2021‎ (CDT)
Signing your posts allows for others to see who wrote it. It is standard practice on any wiki. Just type 4 tilda's after your post (~~~~). I added signatures to both of your posts. It has your username/timestamp of the post. Titantalk 06:44, 18 September 2021 (CDT)

Resourceful collection is still missing from crew info. If anyone can fix it than please do so - the wiki is getting outdated fast without updated info.

The collection appears to be displaying properly on the crew who are in it. Have checked a few. Could you point to an example where they aren't so we can try to fix that? Ashenjuniper (talk) 03:07, 6 October 2021 (UTC)
Also, please remember to sign posts so we know who posted what. (To sign a post, just type ~~~~ after your post. It will automatically add a signature.) Titantalk 03:56, 6 October 2021 (UTC)

503 errors

I don't know how much help it is, but I was trying to fill in some gaps on my listing of my crew after the site port over. I don't know if there are still some bugs behind the scenes, but I wanted to let you know that I've been getting 503 like errors for quite awhile now tonight; the site timing out and otherwise having connection issues. I hope it's just a temporary problem all the same. Side note: why is the show preview button required now before any updates are done to any page on the wiki? It was never an issue before as far as I've been aware. Vivi t3ch (talk) 03:51, 6 October 2021 (UTC)

Have you been using the Visual Editor or the source editor? Can you link to the pages you've been trying to edit? Will look into the preview requirement - that was copied across from old wiki I thought. Ineffyble (talk) 07:22, 7 October 2021 (UTC)
I was getting 503 errors the other day, I just pinned it on traffic issues. I opened a big batch of pages in a row to do some standardizing edits and some of the new tabs failed to 503s, then edits would also occasionally fail if I moved too fast. When I slowed down it was fine. Also, there had not been a preview requirement on the old site Middlehead (talk) 20:35, 7 October 2021 (UTC)

White sections on some special pages

Some sections are not following the site theme, white background with colored text. Hard to see, not sure of the cause. Example is uploaded image list.Ace (talk) 21:24, 10 October 2021 (UTC)

The reason is because those tables (im guessing) have a different css class/style then other wiki tables. It is using some of the same css (such as white text), but not the dark background. Im not an expert at css, so i will defer to someone else to fix this. Titantalk 21:38, 10 October 2021 (UTC)

Downtime earlier

Sorry about earlier, still investigating what happened there. Getting the wiki to a highly performant, reliable state is still a work in progress. Ineffyble (talk) 22:08, 11 October 2021 (UTC)

This again, will be spending some time this weekend to hopefully stop it happening again. Ineffyble (talk) 05:08, 15 October 2021 (UTC)

Speedily Deletion request: Author requests deletion

At someone's convenience, could an admin please speedily delete an unused image that I uploaded?


It is just a flipped version of


I have since learned that I can use a flipped version of root image by linking to an item that already uses the flipped version of a root image.
