    The wiki is being a pita to update. I probably need to load an older version of php and move the wiki up in steps. I will do that late tomorrow night, the site will be down while that is happening.

    Posting to see what GED wrote as his last post is now showing for me.

    I just want to mention that the current server upgrade, including the upgrade for vBulletin, seems to fix my long standing "not getting an e-mail notification" issue and I don't remember the last time I got an e-mail notification for a PM.

    Thank you GED and Squid for your hard work.

    Zooming with your smartphone also works fine since the update. There happened to be many problems on random occassions, all fixed now. Thanks a lot, you guys.

    Ok the wiki is 90% working. I have to update some extensions and fix a few things. Most importantly the single sign on which allows you to use your TWC account to login to the wiki is not working yet, that will be the first priority. I will do a big write up on this later.

    Holy crap!

    In the 20 minutes the wiki has been up we got totally bombed with spam edits. I took it offline until I get all the extensions working again.

    Sounds like the bad old days when Mak and I had to nuke spammers manually-I'd rather not have to do that again!

    Yeah I think I am going to owe her (Mak) dinner. I rolled back a bunch but while I was doing that they were creating more. I am going to take my wife to dinner and deal with extensions later tonight. I will shoot Mak a note and apologize! I know its kind of her baby.

    I need someone to test logging into the wiki for me. Both of my accounts were created in the wiki database well before Sim wrote the hook to allow logins with your vBulletin account, so I cannot test this without creating another account. Thanks in advance!

    Managed to log in with my bot as usual (never changed my password for it) as I can't remember the Wiki password for my Gigantus account, it's unfortunately not linked to the TWC log in and I have changed it dozens of times.

    Edit: Accessed my personal page and everything looks fine on first glance (time to update ) - I do seem to remember that there was a background theme? Right now it's very light grey and white.

    The wiki skin I haven't fixed yet. Compared to all the other extensions I had to update I considered that one low priority. Something is different in the wiki versions and loading the TWC skin as is causes a 500 error.

    I think I got all the spam removed, so Mak won't be looking to take my head off. I clicked the Password Reset on your username, so you should get an email on it. If not I can manually reset you.

    Wiki Staff have 2 new tools to deal with spam. One is a Mass Delete and the other lets them see IP addresses so they can mass delete by IP or by user name. Currently only Admins (wiki admins, not site admins, they are different) can use that but I told Mak to feel free to give it to anyone in staff.

    Ahh thanks for all that, I'm just catching up with things and very glad all that spam got fixed without me

    It's actually looking quite nice and fresh in the monobook skin, though that might just be the relief at seeing it all back again! It does seem to be missing the edit help buttons (bold/italic etc) though - I'm not sure if that was skin dependent?

    I think those buttons were also from an extension?

    Actually there was, Meg was in Hex for a while. She got mad at me when she was telling a story about riding a horse and it was going too fast and she was sore cause she bounced all over the place and I asked her if she was able to get down and put another penny in by herself or if someone else had to do it...

    Anyways, if Mak wanted in Hex she would certainly have my vote. But somehow I suspect dealing with crazy posters and lazy moderators isn't her idea of a good time.
