My apologies if this isn't the right place to post this ;) I use a Mac with OS 10.7.5 and Safari 6.0.5. Numerous links in the wiki structure itself seem to be displaying some kind of label for the underlying element rather than the intended display name. For instance, instead of Sharing (at the top left of the page, after Project Page and Discussion) I get & lt;sharing& gt; (I've had to put a space after each & to prevent them from turning into < and >, which is not what is displayed on my screen). The same is true for several elements in the preview pane; I have & lt;wikieditor-wikitext-tab& gt; & lt;wikieditor-preview-tab& gt; & lt;wikieditor-preview-changes-tab& gt; & lt;wikieditor-publish-button-publish& gt; & lt;wikieditor-publish-button-cancel& gt; & lt;wikieditor-toolbar-section-advanced& gt; and & lt;wikieditor-toolbar-section-characters& gt; as well. There are probably others, but I suspect that's more info than you need ;) Oh, and needless to say I don't have this problem with any other wikis, including Wikipedia, Wowpedia and Minecraft Wiki. -- Taohinton (talk) 11:21, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
- This lasted for another day or so (through dozens of separate instances) and resolved, presumably because of some change in the system (not to do with anything at my end). -- Taohinton (talk) 11:32, 16 September 2013 (UTC)
- This is a known but rare intermittent bug in the Gamepedia platform that crops up every once in a while. We haven't had much luck tracking down the cause. It seems to crop up more often when there's work going on in the backend, and we've been preparing for a significant upgrade of our production environment. It was probably triggered by some of that preparation work. We apologize for the inconvenience, and our development team continues to investigate. OOeyes (talk) 22:35, 16 September 2013 (UTC)
Vandalism pages for deletion
A couple of recent vandalism pages; I turned the first into a redirect, but when I found the second one I thought I might as well just ask you to delete them both ;)
- Slyvanis windrunner
- Expression Life or General Life Insurance?
- Hey Taohinton I've just made you an admin on the wiki. Your contributions have been awesome and it's obvious we need some more moderators here as open beta is upon us soon! - Smokie (talk) 22:07, 8 November 2013 (UTC)
Archiving and cleaning up the noticeboard
This is just as much my fault as anybody's, but we've let this page drift from its intended purpose and it's making it difficult to keep track of what issues are still outstanding. As a first step, I've moved everything to the talk page and moved what was already there to an archive page. It would be helpful if any closed discussions now on the talk page were moved to the archive page to wrap that part up.
I'm not entirely sure I'm aware of all current issues, but I'm reposting what I'm aware of below. Please feel free to post anything I've missed, and if relevant, please link to the ongoing discussion on the talk page (or create a new one). Thank you. (Note that I'm neglecting to do so for some of these issues because they're spread across topics.) OOeyes (talk) 22:24, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
