  • Be careful when renaming vandalized articles. Make sure the comments and history are properly transferred.

    To do that, make sure to rename associated talk page as well its subpages (most do not have one, but some might). Always revert by renaming rather than copying content.

    Should the history or comments not carry over to the destination, follow these steps to merge them. This works even if new comments or history entries have been added.

    1. Delete the page you want everything moved to. This is important - make sure you delete the destination.
    2. Move (rename) the other page to the same name as the page you just deleted.
    3. Go back to the deletion log and undelete what you just deleted.
    4. Ensure page content is correct. If it's not, simply revert to a proper version via the now-merged page history.
    Example:

    Let's say there are 2 pages for Monster Meat. One named "monster meat" and the other "Monster Meat". Both pages have their own edit history and comments. To merge them such that the page that remains is "Monster Meat":

    1. Delete "Monster Meat"
    2. Rename "monster meat" to "Monster Meat"
    3. Undelete "Monster Meat" through the deletion log.

    The same applies to renaming a vandalized page. When it comes to correcting page content, simply go to the page history, select a revision with the proper content, open it, "edit" it, and save it without changing anything. Page content should be the lowest priority for proper moving, as it's very easy to restore it.

    Note that page protection will be lost after this procedure.

  • It seems that the recent recurring vandalism is being done through the Tor network.

    Maybe we should use something like Extension:TorBlock to protect the wiki with minimal disruption to other users?

  • Just wanted to apologize for rolling back your edit on Warly's quote page. It's all fixed now. I'm on mobile and accidentally tapped on the rollback link.

  • Links in page MediaWiki:Noarticletext are broken. As an Admin can you repair it ?

    They can be repair by adding "https:" before {{SERVER}} in the source code.

    • Create [https:{{SERVER}}{{localurl:{{NAMESPACE}}:{{PAGENAME}}|action=edit}} Create]
    • Check [https:{{SERVER}}{{localurl:Special:Log/delete|page={{FULLPAGENAMEE}}}} Check]
    • Search [https:{{SERVER}}{{localurl:Special:Search|search={{FULLPAGENAMEE}}&fulltext=Search}} Search]

    Thanks to Macks2010 for noticing.

  • I noticed you reverted some of my edits involving the quotes of some pages. Since you're an admin, I assume I did something wrong and you reverted it. Can you please their purpose of why that one character must have his quote on that one page?

  • I have this template code and when I place it down, the border lines cover up the whole article. Do you think you could tell me how to make it right from the code?

    • Sorry, I'm not good at template coding, so I don't think I can offer much help here.
