Gif thumbnail animations aren't working

Hi aLeXmOrA, as this was already an issue when N3X15 was the main admin the discussion can be found there: User talk:N3X15#Gif thumbnail animations aren't working. — xZise [talk] 16:07, 28 January 2014 (CST)

This wasn't fixed by the update to 1.24.2 but it got even worse and more images won't work. But I don't know if both errors are related. — xZise [talk] 10:17, 1 May 2015 (UTC)


And again hi. While I was setting up my local MediaWiki installation to test the bot, I noticed that there is a InstantCommons function. I would suggest activating that as we already have a few files from the commons (Category:Wikimedia files) which shouldn't be necessary then. — xZise [talk] 16:07, 28 January 2014 (CST)

Botflag request

I've a bot flag request for User:BobBot. I would use the bot to move about 170 files but if possible to help anybody here with tedious jobs. Another think I listed there was to mark images with {{NoThumbnailsPlease}}. Another possibility, on which I'm currently working on, is to update some things after an update. I'm also thinking about to automate adding a language. I understand if you hesitate to give someone the bot flag, but afaik I can do more with the admin rights than a bot can do (and for the most things it only needs bot flag). — xZise [talk] 16:07, 28 January 2014 (CST)

Using UTC as a time standard

Currently, when automatically signing, it uses CST or CDT. This might be convenient for people living in America, but I'm never sure what the exact distance between mine current time zone and CST/CDT is. The English Wikipedia is for example using UTC as a standard. — xZise [talk] 10:12, 6 February 2014 (CST)

Math function doesn't work sometimes

The <math> tag doesn't work on some pages like User:XZise/test but it does on others like {{FuelConsumption}}. It could be that pages which were edited after the update are only affected. — xZise [talk] 10:17, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

Moving (some) images doesn't work

I tried to move images from Category:Technology tree node images but I just get “[295ae08e] 2015-04-30 23:28:30: Fatal exception of type MWException”. When I try to move the images with my bot using the API I get: ERROR: internal_api_error_MWException: Exception Caught: Could not acquire lock for 'Start.png.'. It might be that all images are affected. — xZise [talk] 10:17, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

Cannot upload file

I found out after the MediaWiki update, i am not able to upload ANY file --Deepspacecreeper (talk) 01:40, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

See the site note and Project:Migration problems. — xZise [talk] 08:51, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

Broken image captcha

On sign up at least, the captcha to solve the image has been broken since the file structure was changed. Previously the script path (as shown in Special:Version) was /w/ but now is just / (e.g. instead of /w/index.php it's now /index.php). But the captcha itself (or the test) still uses the old script path. (noted by someone via w:de:Benutzer Diskussion:XZise#Kerbal Wiki problems) — xZise [talk] 12:22, 28 May 2015 (UTC)

Okay when you go to the signup page an reload often enough you'll get by chance the image captcha and it's using as the path. As you see there is a /W/ after <code>/wiki/ and if I remove that (and the wiki) it works: I guess you need to change it in the ConfirmEdit extension. — xZise [talk] 12:26, 28 May 2015 (UTC)
