Wiki stuff that requires Admin attention
This thread is for requesting changes to the wiki which will require the involvement of an HLP admin. If what you need done can be handled by a normal Wiki admin (aka sysop), such as deletions, post about it elsewhere in this forum. I will keep a list of currently requested changes in this post, so any admin with time on his hands and knowledge/access to the wiki won't have to waste half of that time wading through this or other threads.

Note, just because a request ends up here doesn't mean it is necessarily doable by HLP admins either, it just means we Wiki admins can't do it. If an HLP admin posts and says that something can't be done, or won't be due to the time or difficulty involved, the request will be removed from the list.

Currently requested changes:
  • Change gallery background colour to something other than white. [Original topic link]
  • Make the navigation sidebar a static fixed object so it stays on screen when you scroll down. [Original topic link]
  • Implementation of a short FS-theme questionnaire to help filter out spambots. [Original post link]

Just a minor gripe with the fact that the Wiki doesn't seem to know how to parse something. It's been there since...around the time edit changes suddenly went white for some reason, which is a very long time.

"Truth" is the opinion of the majority which it can enforce on the minority. Members of the minority have two choices: join the bandwagon or think. Those who do not fall into line will be brutally crushed.
The tools to maintain order are: lies, double standards, and hypocrisy. The most powerful and the most insidious of them is hypocrisy

Requesting Wiki Registration
Hello,

I would like to register myself on FreeSpace Wiki, because I want to help out in expanding info on ship classes, weapons, species, campaigns, walkthroughs, etc. I also like to fix typos to make it readable.

Re: Wiki stuff that requires Admin attention
The FreeSpace Wiki appears to be down, while most of the HLP websites are up. It appears that the wiki timed out responding to any requests. Is it a technical issue or not? When it's going to be fixed?

Re: Wiki stuff that requires Admin attention
Here's what I've got while waiting for the FreeSpace wiki to load:

Error 524 Ray ID: b827b80b7d003be
A timeout occurred

Is it a cloudflare problem?

Re: Wiki stuff that requires Admin attention
I think it's due to the browser cache. I cleared it, and I am able to access the wiki again.

For some reason, I thought I already had a wiki account, but it looks like I don't. Could I get an account registered?

schrödinbug (noun) - a bug that manifests itself in running software after a programmer notices that the code should never have worked in the first place.

"I am one of the best FREDders on Earth" -General Battuta

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

<IronWorks> I am useful for FSO stuff again. This is a red-letter day!

<MageKing17> TIL the entire homing code is held up by shoestrings and duct tape, basically.

Could we get this added please?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template_talk:TOC_limit

I've already added the template and will be using it in reformatting the briefing/debriefing pages. This would be really useful, as without it the table of Contents is going to end up massive.

Done, but in this case, the TOC limit feature didn't require any special admin file access. :D  Have a look at this page.

I'd like to have an account for the wiki to correct the page about menu.tbl. (It's still in use by FSO and the shourcut keys actually work.)
