Vandal Archives

Vandal LightBauble (profile • talk • contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) Deleting entire pages to insert gibberish stories. -- 13:41, 16 December 2020 (UTC)

Blocked, thank you. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 13:48, 16 December 2020 (UTC)

Vandal (talk • contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) Has been blocked once already, returned afterward and continued adding gibberish. 2057clones (talk) 01:49, 16 December 2020 (UTC)

Blocked, thanks. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 10:46, 16 December 2020 (UTC)

Vandal Adventacle (profile • talk • contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) - They left a bunch of bad comments in Talk page Daud ahn (talk) 03:21, 15 December 2020 (UTC)

I went and reverted most of his edits. Not sure it warrants a block. I left a comment on his profile, explaining the purpose of Talk pages. If he continues, will likely block him a week to get his attention. Ferretwings, CTM (talk) 23:53, 15 December 2020 (UTC)

Vandal Jacobhusmann (profile • talk • contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) Vandalized Witch Doctor, created a page titled Banners (Peaceful) that appears to serve no use (redundant) and continually adds to it/removes delete tags. Not sure what to do about them but at least a warning would be nice. 2057clones (talk) 00:49, 11 December 2020 (UTC)

Thaks for reporting. I've deleted the page and blocked him for three days as he intentionally vandalized the Witch Doctor page three times. Dinoxel (talk) 10:50, 11 December 2020 (UTC)
Returning. They have continued to upload/add content that is not in the game (Template:Hanukkah only and two files). 2057clones (talk) 22:29, 16 December 2020 (UTC)
Blocked again. While it's not the same kind of vandalism this time, it's pretty apparent they have no interest in making serious contributions currently. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 23:11, 16 December 2020 (UTC)

Vandal‎ (talk • contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) Vandalizing/adding irrelevant information to Talk:Cursed Flame. Persisting despite reversions. 2057clones (talk) 18:46, 2 December 2020 (UTC)

I've deleted the page and posted on their talk page. I don't think they were acting maliciously but this counts as a warning to them for now. 4e696e6a6f795844 (talk) 20:00, 2 December 2020 (UTC)

Vandal Tabykittycat59 (profile • talk • contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) - Vandalism on the Moon Lord page. TheLOLxd2 talk 10:01, 21 November 2020 (UTC)

Blocked. Thank you for the report! --Eraloiz (talk) 12:39, 21 November 2020 (UTC)

Vandal Success007 (profile • talk • contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) Seems to be posting spam, done twice already. 2057clones (talk) 13:23, 17 November 2020 (UTC)

Blocked. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 16:55, 17 November 2020 (UTC)

Vandal (talk • contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) Multiple vandalism edits, persisted despite reversions. 2057clones (talk) 14:06, 30 October 2020 (UTC)

Vandal (talk • contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) History of vandalism, returned after two blocks to continue vandalizing. (If this is already listed farther down, apologies, I couldn't find it anyway) 2057clones (talk) 13:20, 30 October 2020 (UTC)

Both blocked. Thanks! --Eraloiz (talk) 15:35, 30 October 2020 (UTC)

Vandal (talk • contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) Replacing content on Bathtubs, persisted despite a reversion. Only two edits as of writing, reporting for awareness. 2057clones (talk) 00:55, 23 October 2020 (UTC)

Vandal Pcgmrich (profile • talk • contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) I'm skipping the usual warning I give new members because this one's just doing the same vandalism that Germag2213 does whenever his blocks expire. Probably a sock puppet account. PuzzledKino (talk) 00:38, 26 September 2020 (UTC)

Bumping for awareness. (Sorry if I'm not allowed to do this or anything, I didn't see any rules about it, so...) Anyway, they are moving pages in an identical manner to Germag2213, and persisting after reversions. --2057clones (talk) 14:45, 26 September 2020 (UTC)
Blocked, thanks for the report. Gotta protect the Enemies page. --Dinoxel talk 15:34, 26 September 2020 (UTC)
Returning to say that they are misquoting people in their talk page as Germag2213 does. Given the severity of Germag2213's actions and the fact that this appears to be a sockpuppet account anyway, this may warrant disabling their talk page? --2057clones (talk) 02:25, 1 October 2020 (UTC)
Might be preferable yeah, thanks. --Dinoxel talk 14:59, 1 October 2020 (UTC)

Vandal Germag2213 (profile • talk • contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) Still posting the same vandalism they've been doing for a few months now. PuzzledKino (talk) 19:53, 19 September 2020 (UTC)

Blocked. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 23:42, 19 September 2020 (UTC)
Thanks! Unfortunately, the block does not prevent this user from modifying their talk page and misquoting other users, which they are currently doing. PuzzledKino (talk) 01:51, 20 September 2020 (UTC)
Just bumping this for awareness, since I probably drowned my own report in all the edits I made last night. Thanks. PuzzledKino (talk) 17:13, 20 September 2020 (UTC)
Alright; vandals are usually not deprived of their right to edit their own talk page, so that they are still able to communicate and appeal against the block, but this user apparently has no intention of using that right constructively. Thanks for this followup. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 19:18, 20 September 2020 (UTC)

Vandal Theterrariaplayer89 (profile • talk • contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) Created a page documenting a nonexistent item, vandalized one page, and put something strange on the community noticeboard that I'm not sure how to deal with. Has not been warned as I can tell, reporting for awareness and alert. --2057clones (talk) 15:44, 18 September 2020 (UTC)

Vandal (talk • contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) History of vandalism. Recently returned from multiple blocks, I believe, to continue vandalizing. --2057clones (talk) 20:13, 17 September 2020 (UTC)

Blocked. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 21:11, 17 September 2020 (UTC)

Vandal Hiyes (profile • talk • contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) Did some minor vandalism on the Soaring Insignia and the Celestial Starboard pages. EvanPi314 (talk) 02:33, 8 September 2020 (UTC)

Vandal Bazavark (profile • talk • contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) Repeated vandalism, even after warning. PuzzledKino (talk) 03:38, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

Blocked. --Dinoxel talk 04:49, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

Vandal Maxbk217 (profile • talk • contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) Repeatedly vandalized the Prefix IDs page. EvanPi314 (talk) 01:56, 20 August 2020 (UTC)

Vandal Germagsam221331 (profile • talk • contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) Vandalized the Confetti Wall page again. I'm posting here without messaging the user first because, if I'm not mistaken, this is the same user who has repeatedly vandalized the Confetti Wall page over the last few weeks, between blocks. PuzzledKino (talk) 01:28, 13 August 2020 (UTC)

Blocked. --Dinoxel talk 04:49, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

Vandal (talk • contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) Repeated and ongoing vandalism of multiple pages, despite reversions. PuzzledKino (talk) 21:54, 12 August 2020 (UTC)

This guy is pretty bad, was going to put him here myself but you beat me to it! EvanPi314 (talk) 21:04, 13 August 2020 (UTC)
Blocked, but forgot to respond here. Thanks! --Eraloiz (talk) 21:06, 13 August 2020 (UTC)

Vandal (talk • contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) did some naughty vandalism on the Last Prism page. EvanPi314 (talk) 13:59, 11 August 2020 (UTC)

Vandal (talk • contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) Immediately re-vandalized the page Pumpkin Moon Medallion after I removed their initial vandalism, and is continuing to add further misinformation. PuzzledKino (talk) 06:31, 10 August 2020 (UTC)

Vandal (talk • contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) Repeated vandalism on the page Confetti Wall. Also, this page has seen repeated vandalism throughout an extended period of time and could perhaps benefit from protection. Thank you. PuzzledKino (talk) 01:25, 10 August 2020 (UTC)

Blocked, thanks. --Dinoxel talk 02:38, 10 August 2020 (UTC)

Vandal (talk • contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) Rick Rolled the Terraprisma page twice after being removed. EvanPi314 (talk) 22:42, 5 August 2020 (UTC)

Blocked. --Dinoxel talk 22:53, 5 August 2020 (UTC)

At this point they should probably activate the anti-vandal wards around every page that has something to do with the word prism. 02:51, 6 August 2020 (UTC)

Vandal User-100108363‎ (profile • talk • contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) Randomly moved Terraria to Terraria Wiki:Terraria and Talk:Terraria to Terraria Wiki talk:Terraria for no reason. 22:15, 4 June 2020 (UTC)

Vandal Boom853 (profile • talk • contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) Seems to be purposefully making edits in small steps to grind up their edit count. Refer to edits such as from this to this, from this to this, and this to this. Their entire contribution history is filled with what I'd call "double edits" where they change 1 tiny thing followed by a second tiny thing shortly afterwards. These double, triple, or even quadruple edits are done within minutes of eachother and have no summary, leading to a contribution history of only "Mobile edit, Mobile web edit". While some double edits can be seen to be informative, some are completely un-necessary, such as from this to this. If an example of quadruple edits is needed, one can look further on the Honey page. After the un-necessary edit to the wording of their tip, they followed up with these edits: this edit adding a useless info box, the following edit removing the info box, the next edit adding an image of honey in a "Forest", the next one editing "Forest" to be "Bee Hive" but with "Bee" and "Hive" being linked separately, and then this edit fixing the link to properly point at "Bee Hive". Multiple edits is acceptable but this user is clearly making purposefully incorrect edits to pad out their edit count. ImmortalZypther (talk) 19:40, 2 June 2020 (UTC)

Vandal (talk • contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) Only 2 edits, both of which contain incorrect information. ImmortalZypther (talk) 19:27, 2 June 2020 (UTC)

Other issues[edit source]

Issue Archives

Blocked edit from a filter[edit source]

An attempt to add an internation link to a page in another (Russian) language was blocked by the filter "Too many foreign letters or repeat symbols". Well that's how it works I guess. (In that case I tried to add russian link on Tile IDs, but it would also prevent from adding any other link of this kind. The link itself gets blocked even here) Pickpocke (talk) 10:35, 9 January 2020 (UTC)

Thank you for reporting this. I added the interwiki link in question (see edit) and also modified the filter so that it allows adding those from now on, regardless of number of foreign letters. Apparently, interwiki links weren't considered when that filter was set up, so thank you again for noting it! --Rye Greenwood (talk) 04:02, 11 January 2020 (UTC)

Login Issues[edit source]

Permissions problem: Was getting an odd message on all profile pages including my own: "You do not have permission to add comments or reply. Please make sure you are logged in, have validated your email address, and have performed at least one edit to an article.". At that point it looked from the top bar like I was logged in, but I tried logging out and then back in. The site told me all logins should go to the main Gamepedia portal... Then it force-redirected me to the Twitch portal to log in, but after logging in I got "Forbidden - CSRF token invalid", and I am not logged in. MentalMouse42 -- 12:31, 22 January 2020 (UTC)

Not being able to comment is a known issue (ticket), probably caused by the platform update from yesterday. It appears to have been fixed very recently, though.
Are you still unable to log in? --Rye Greenwood (talk) 21:57, 22 January 2020 (UTC)

Page evaluation Problems[edit source]

"Expansion depth limit exceeded" all over Trophies and Royal Gel pages, dunno where else but if it's hitting both of those it will be elsewhere. --MentalMouse42 (talk) 13:53, 23 February 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for reporting, should be all fixed now. A simple purge was all that was needed. For the future: All pages with this specific error are categorized in Category:Pages where expansion depth is exceeded. You can also find other maintenance categories like that one in Category:Things to do. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 19:37, 23 February 2020 (UTC)

Broken page[edit source]

The crafting table of https://terraria.gamepedia.com/Mining_Potion is broken and is saying "Lua error module:item at line 146: attempt to concatenate local 'link' (a nil value). 05:29, 26 March 2020 (UTC)

Cargo tables, Drilldown -> "Permission error" for anonymous users[edit source]

I understand if it's disallowed because it's cpu intensive or whatnot, but if it's just an oversight, please add permission for anonymous IPs to use it. Atm I just use offset=0&limit=10000 to work around it which is probably more resource intensive. 06:49, 13 May 2020 (UTC)

Missing data from Cargo table[edit source]

The Items_new cargo table seems to no longer contain yoyos which has broken the table on the Yoyos page. EDIT: Has now been fixed. TrockDoge (talk) 10:29, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

Unsure What To Do[edit source]

Hello. I have a problem. I am only knowledgeable with stuff prior to Old One's Army. Now that there's been some updates, I unsure what I can do. Any tips? Anything that hasn't changed? I also am not very good with images and GIFs.Pispacedolphinmachinegun (talk) 16:35, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

Infoboxes[edit source]

So I made a notice on the community noticeboard that there's no offical Dreadnautilus infobox. Someone made one and it hasn't been ready to transclude. I'm also wonderingHow do I create an infobox? Actually, how do I create a template?Pispacedolphinmachinegun (talk) 16:25, 22 May 2020 (UTC)

Recipes: Critter statues[edit source]

In Recipes/Heavy Work Bench, Bird, Bunny and Fish statue's traditional recipe has a 3DS icon. 3DS doesn't even have Heavy Work Bench thus the logic should be {{eicons|Heavy Work Bench|not=}} instead? -- Creeper_NoDenial (talk) 14:18, 26 May 2020 (UTC)

Indeed, thank you for noting. I have updated the database. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 17:33, 29 May 2020 (UTC)

NPC infobox $auto in a mess[edit source]

Like take Green Slime as an example. Expert mode damage 112 max life 324? That's nowhere close to the proper value... I see that infobox template is getting a lot of updates recently and hopefully you're working on this issue and the addition of Master mode NPC stats.

The Expert mode damage is not just post-Plantera damage either. Check Slime#Variants where the data is the same as when I first edited Blue Slime to add in Master mode data- Blue Slime is currently displaying the data I updated, and in the brackets with a question mark are the data from $auto.

The max life and damage data for blue slime are a bit messy from this, I know, but it's better than telling people the wrong expert mode data and missing master mode data.

I hope that the data for $auto can be fixed and have Master mode data included asap. Thanks a lot! --Creeper_NoDenial (talk) 15:20, 26 May 2020 (UTC)

Update: I’ve checked just now and on Green Slime’s page it said Blue Slime banner. Added “banner = yes” for a fix but well, to make its code cleaner, this should be dealt with by fixing auto information. —-Creeper_NoDenial (talk) 23:48, 27 May 2020 (UTC) (Yeah I’m too lazy to log in as I’m on phone)

Editing Issue[edit source]

I was trying to edit the reference to the Town Bunny name "Inaba" since I incorrectly thought it was Tewi Inaba, but after thinking things over more, I realized the reference was more likely to be the character Reisen Udongein Inaba from Touhou. I tried to edit my edit, but I got an error saying something about the new edit was inappropriate despite linking to the same sources as Tewi, and I'm not really sure what I did differently or wrong... 05:05, 27 May 2020 (UTC)

Your addition contained a string of characters that alerts the filter, which then prevents you from saving the page. It has nothing to do with the content, it was just a false positive. Thank you for reporting this! I have improved the filter so that this should not happen again.
Sorry you had to experience this, and thank you for your commitment to contributing! I have added what you initially attempted to: Special:Diff/1009196. Of course, feel free to adjust it. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 17:33, 29 May 2020 (UTC)

Lesion Chest as incorrect recipe[edit source]

Lesion Chest Crafting Recipe.png

The lesion chest is listed as the only chest that does not require 2 bars of any iron to craft. In game, however, 2 iron bars are required to craft the chest just like any other chest. The Guide NPC verifies this crafting recipe. — Preceding unsigned comment added by K0re0 (talkcontribs) at 21:49, 27 May 2020‎ (UTC)

Good catch! I've updated the recipe. --Eraloiz (talk) 23:17, 27 May 2020 (UTC)

API help[edit source]

Dear Devs, I am working on my custom Discord bot (All Credit will be provided once finished) and I was wondering if there was API documentation for terraria.gamepedia.com because I am currently struggling to write a python code since the closest thing I can find is the API documentation for League of Legends' gamepedia (https://lol.gamepedia.com/Help:API_Documentation). Please let me know if you could provide me with a little help or show an already existing help page which I cannot find. Thank you for taking your time reading this email. P.S. In case you're wondering what will the bot do, it will take in the keyword as an input from the user and give it a brief summary which will be taken from you wiki (I was told that all the info here is free to use) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Specialedceo (talkcontribs) at 22:08, 28 May 2020 (UTC)

Hello, we don't have a page dedicated to API help, but most of what is described on Leaguepedia's page applies to the Terraria Wiki as well, since both wikis are based on the same software. In particular, MediaWiki's API help is a good reference, and every wiki has an API sandbox that you can use for testing queries. The entry point is, again, as on all MediaWiki wikis, /api.php: https://terraria.gamepedia.com/api.php.
In general, if you're writing in Python, I highly recommend you to take a look at the two packages linked on Leaguepedia's page, mwclient and MWParserFromHell. I have very positive experiences with them.
Lastly, I'd like to inform you that MarkusRost has created a bot, "Wiki-Bot", whose functionality is similar to what you seem to want to create. Maybe you can get in touch with Markus if you need assistance, or pay the bot's Discord support server a visit.

Bot account[edit source]

How do I create a bot account? I would like to create one. Also, can you make several bot accounts?Pispacedolphinmachinegun (talk) 22:33, 28 May 2020 (UTC)

A bot account is (as far as I know) simply a normal account that runs automated scripts in order to complete repetitive tasks. There is a special "Bot" account status that can be set, which does some convenient changes to make it easier to use. Multiple bot accounts would probably be doable, though there wouldn't be much point unless you need to have them do multiple things at a time. -- 22:36, 28 May 2020 (UTC)
See these:
You'll need to create a separate account, clearly marked as a bot and with a link to the operator (you), and you'll need to generate bot credentials (second link above). Equazcion (talk) 22:40, 28 May 2020 (UTC)
How do I need to contact to get my bot account marked as a bot? I have done all the steps listed there but it still a member of users. --S0r3 (talk) 21:13, 15 July 2020 (UTC)

Not allowed to make edit[edit source]

Hello, I am trying to edit the Gem Critters page by removing a lot of invisible infocards which are cluttering the edit section. In that page, it appears that there originally was an infocard for every single type of critter, but they were condensed into 2 general infocards because they all had the exact same statistics. However, the old infocards were not removed and were instead made invisible by some method, which results in a lot of unnecessary clutter when editing. Would it be helpful to remove these invisible infocards, and if so, how would I or someone else be able to do it without it being denied? 01:17, 29 May 2020 (UTC)

A note on the page explains that those infoboxes are necessary for cargo storage purposes, that's probably why it's being blocked. --Wrpen (talk) 02:34, 29 May 2020 (UTC)
I wonder if we can make editing easier by putting those infoboxes somewhere else, and transcluding them into the page if Cargo requires that. Equazcion (talk) 02:54, 29 May 2020 (UTC)
Well if there is I don't know how to do it. --Wrpen (talk) 07:38, 29 May 2020 (UTC)

Vandalism Report[edit source]

It seems I have been accused of vandalizing the Guide:Defending Against Events page, and I would like to clear that up. When I wrote the Guide:Goblin Army Strategies page, I wrote that a ditch with a little bit of lava was ideal. It seemed to me the 2 guides were contradicting each other, so I removed the simple ditch on Guide:Defending Against Events. In hindsight, I guess of should've replaced it with the lava ditch strategy. So yeah, sorry about that. Pispacedolphinmachinegun (talk) 05:39, 29 May 2020 (UTC)

Breaker Blade[edit source]

I was trying to add a trivia for breaker blade, but when I put it as a POSSIBLE reference to Cloud's Buster Sword, but there have been no response from the developers, due to me seeing stuff like that, it said the info I tried to put in was harmful. What's up with that?

Can't edit Stardust armor trivia[edit source]

I understand why the page was locked, but since it has been confirmed since 1.4 to be a Jojo reference, the lock should probably be lifted. I was trying to change

"Due to the community's enthusiasm in comparing Stardust armor to the manga and anime JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders, Yoraiz0r has acknowledged the resemblance and said the armor can be a reference."


"Due to the community's enthusiasm in comparing Stardust armor's name and set bonus to the abilities of the protagonist in manga and anime JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders, Yoraiz0r acknowledged the unintentional resemblance, and in 1.4 the Stardust Guardian's behavior was changed to even more closely resemble the anime/manga."

Just to improve clarity to the backwards way the reference got added to the game, but it seems that all edits to that section are locked. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) at 15:21, 5 June 2020

"and in 1.4 the Stardust Guardian's behavior was changed to even more closely resemble the anime/manga" -- That's not confirmed. They actually said "All resemblance to a certain anime is purely coincidental." Much as that might be an intentional tease, we still have no confirmation regarding any intention on the developer's part to make this look like the anime. Equazcion (talk) 19:27, 5 Jun 2020 (UTC)

So that definitely used to be the case, but I noticed that someone added this conversation screen cap (https://terraria.gamepedia.com/File:Stardust_Jojo_ref.png) to the page confirming that series of events. "it wasn't one at first, but the community thought otherwise and it's somthing we embraced, especially with the changes in 1.4" -Yoraiz0r 13:35, 9 June 2020 (UTC)

Still cannot make changes to the Trivia section as of 10/16/2020. 01:15, 17 October 2020 (UTC)

All wing pages deleted[edit source]

The Community Wiki Noticeboard said that there was admin agreement on creating individual wing pages. I did so. User Phil04 has deleted them all.Mathbrush1 (talk) 16:10, 6 June 2020 (UTC)

I'm not seeing any admins agreeing there, although admins alone don't necessarily decide these things. I feel like there was some miscommunication there. There's an ongoing discussion on Discord about this. Equazcion (talk) 21:21, 6 Jun 2020 (UTC)
Well, I noticed when creating them that they had been created and redirected before. I'm fine with it staying as a list, so I'll just leave it alone.Mathbrush1 (talk) 22:51, 6 June 2020 (UTC)

Vanity item page[edit source]

There is something strange about the Vanity items page. When I save it as a pdf, any other Terraria Wiki page is saved quickly without any problem. But Vanity items don't, and it raises my computer's RAM usage to the maximum available, crushing. I tested with several Terraria Wiki pages, but it only happens with Vanity item page. I understand that it's not really a wiki problem, but I confess that I was curious about why this happens.

Last Prism is unfairly locked[edit source]

Everyone knows that this weapon and its tooltip are references. Everyone. Even your mom knows it. And this shouldn't be surprising. This game is FULL of references. Nearly every single item in the late game contains or is a reference to something. Yet this page has been unfairly singled out and blocked from people posting theis extremely obvious reference by an admin who insists that it's all just wacky coincidences and that no references exist in the game, with absolutely no reason given for why they are so deadset on disallowing mention of these very blatant references. It's especially bizarre considering that other, WAY more tenuous references are allowed on various other pages. Considering that the only reason stated in the Discussion page is, and I quote, "League and Touhou fanboys need to leave this game alone", I can only assume that it's a power-mad admin with a grudge against those properties, trying anything and everything to prevent them from being mentioned on this wiki. Knight991016907 (talk) 12:31, 14 June 2020 (UTC)

Nobody said there are no references in the game. Also, the quoted user was just some random unregistered user. Also, if the reference is not confirmed, most editors need to agree that it's probably a reference, but there is a lot of disagreement about this. The policy is that it shall therefore be kept off the page unless confirmed by a dev. -- 12:38, 14 June 2020 (UTC)
Also...dude, the page isn't even protected. At all. -- 12:40, 14 June 2020 (UTC)

NPCs page has apparently gotten too big[edit source]

Trying to edit in even a see-also template gets HTTP 413, which apparently means "payload too large". Maybe break the new Happiness stuff into its own page? --MentalMouse42 (talk) 14:48, 22 June 2020 (UTC)

I had no issues editing. Is your internet connection OK? -- Breathlessblizzard (talk) 15:18, 22 June 2020 (UTC)
I have occasionally had problems, but not often, and usually a hard reload or purging the cache fixes it, which it didn't this time. Trying again... And, still happening. I've been editing other pages, no problem. But when I try to add {{See also|Guide:NPC Happiness}} to the Happiness section, right beneath the "Desktop-only" banner, I get a "Something Went wrong" box, with a white-on-white HTTP 413 message.
--MentalMouse42 (talk) 17:23, 22 June 2020 (UTC)
I was also able to edit the page without issues. Maybe submitting a support ticket to the gamepedia staff may help diagnose the problem. 4e696e6a6f795844 (talk) 17:38, 22 June 2020 (UTC)
I see you added the link. thanks! --MentalMouse42 (talk) 19:36, 22 June 2020 (UTC)
I moved some of the more secondary-yet-bulky material (happiness preferences and emotes tables) off to ajaxed sub-pages. That should hopefully help reduce errors on that page a bit. Equazcion (talk) 18:18, 22 Jun 2020 (UTC)

Can't get in account! Help![edit source]

Hello, it is me, pispacedolphinmachinegun! Apparently, I have missed some changes to Gamepedia because it looks different. I tried to log in, but it said it couldn't find my account! It also said something about adding something to my username. I tried pispacedolphinmachinegun-gpuser to sign in but no luck there either! I even tried using twitch to sign in; I signed in correctly but it did nothing! Can someone explain what is going on? I am worried. -Pispacedolphinmachinegun

Twitch sign in not working![edit source]

Hello, it is I, pisapcedolphinmachinegun (still cannot get in). I am not sure what the heck is wrong with the login page, but I think it is because I don't have a fandom account. I tried logging in using Twitch (the way it did before all this stuff happened). I had my account stuff saved. When I logged in, it kicked me out and I was not logged in! What is wrong? -pispacedolphinmachinegun 16:21, 11 August 2020 (UTC)

Gamepedia won't let me insert a gif when editing a page[edit source]

I want to contribute to the wiki by adding gifs that show the new flail mechanics, but when I try and insert the gif in the page, this pops up. The translation would be along the lines of "This action has been identified as hurtful, therefore it has been disabled". And then it says that I committed "size vandalism". I don't know what's that, but I don't mean to vandalize anything. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Marlux895 (talkcontribs) at 19:00, 23 September 2020 (UTC)

The filter was misconfigured to catch file uploads as well, instead of only normal edits, and I suppose the size of your file exceeded its limits (hence the "size vandalism"). This should no longer happen now. Sorry for the inconvenience! --Rye Greenwood (talk) 19:46, 23 September 2020 (UTC)

Was asked to solve captcha because "Your edit includes new external links." althrough edit did not have them.[edit source]

I was shown "Your edit includes new external links. To protect the wiki against automated spam, we kindly ask you to solve the following CAPTCHA:" when saving page, even though my edit didn't have any and as far as I can tell section I edited didn't have external links either. I'm guessing something is misconfigured on the wiki. link to the edit 07:57, 26 October 2020 (UTC)

I apologize for the inconvenience, though I'm afraid that's outside of our control. What we as editors have control over is the abuse filter, but it didn't react to any of your actions, there's nothing in the logs (and it can't force a captcha anyway). Hence I'd guess some system on Fandom's side was responsible for this, since the wiki recently got moved to Fandom and there have been no reports of this kind of issue before. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 18:54, 26 October 2020 (UTC)

Editing Infoboxes[edit source]

According to the 1.4.1 patch notes, the set bonus on Cobalt Mask was changed from melee speed to +15% melee damage, a great boost. I tried to edit that in the main article, but the infobox is automatically generated. Is there any way to incorporate the changes to the infobox? Mathbrush1 (talk) 20:55, 29 October 2020 (UTC)

Edit:Nevermind, I'm dumb.Mathbrush1 (talk) 20:57, 29 October 2020 (UTC)
Just in case someone else has the same question: The automatic data in the infobox can always be modified manually, simply add the respective parameter. Most parameters support replacing the string @@@@ with the automatic data of that parameter, so that auto and manual data can be mixed. See the template documentation for more information. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 21:12, 29 October 2020 (UTC)

Constant notification to try "Dark Mode" (which is not a gameplay issue)[edit source]

Hello Admin folk,

Can a cookie be developed to make the "Reading hard on your eyes? Try dark-mode (blah-blah-blah)" to go away when I'm signed in and utilizing dark-mode for eons now?

I wasn't sure where to post this since it's a site issue and has zero to do with playing the game. Please advise if there's a better place to address this crucial (ha) matter (but still)... it takes up a decent and unnecessary amount of my browser page consistently.

I knew you'd understand ;)

Thanks, Motozappa (aka Dan) Motozappa (talk) 05:21, 7 January 2021 (UTC)

Clicking "[dismiss]" on the right side of the popup should hide it permanently, unless the dismissSiteNotice cookie gets reset. I don't think it's possible to automatically disable it if you already have dark mode enabled though, since it uses MediaWiki:Sitenotice. --Eraloiz (talk) 06:37, 7 January 2021 (UTC)

Hi Eraloiz, I installed the "Cookie-Editor" add-on in Firefox, deleted the dismissSiteNotice cookie and when the notice returned I disabled Dark Hydra and then dismissed the notice on the upper right. I've returned to Dark Hydra and hope the notice stops popping up. Thanks for the quick help, Motozappa Motozappa (talk) 18:11, 7 January 2021 (UTC)

Developer API for JSON fetching[edit source]

Hello! I was wondering if this mediaWiki has the developer API enabled so we could parse pages from JSON and create some neat tools based off of the information captured here?

For example, a fun side project would be re-creating the Guide's ability to look up crafting recipes, but in this case pulling the latest information from this wiki :)

Let me know if you have any questions! Best, Dan Hagmandan (talk) 17:51, 9 January 2021 (UTC)

Page Editing Glitch?[edit source]

If the screenshot I tried to upload didn't appear, I'll explain what's happening; whenever I finish an edit and go to save the changes, the popup that's supposed to have me input my reason for changing the page and the 'save changes' button appears behind the page's paragraphs. Every time I try to press a button, it clicks onto the paragraphs instead.

I'm not sure if I'm the only one having this problem, or if it is caused by me not having an account, but this keeps happening. This time, a captcha popped up, and because I can't click on it (due to paragraphs being on top of it), I cannot save the changes I made. I'm not sure if this is where I'm supposed to bring problems like this, but I didn't see anywhere else to do so.

[EDIT] I zoomed in to 110% and it moved the box in front of the paragraphs, so I could save. Pretty sure this still isn't how the page is supposed to work though... 05:11, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
