IIWiki
Premier Encyclopedia for the Roleplaying Forums


[ #IIWiki on Esper.net || Main Site || Announcements || The Staff ]



Introduction

Greetings!

This topic is IIWiki's official topic on the Nationstates forums, and any questions, comments, or concerns concerning the wiki should be posted here or on the site's discussion pages. Occasionally, this thread will be used by the IIWiki staff to post important announcements. For those not familiar with IIWiki, IIWiki is wiki dedicated to storing national information and facts about the in-character creations of posters from the NS Diplomacy forums. It was founded in 2011 by Solm after Milograd suggested that a new, active, RP-dedicated, in-character wiki be created to fill the void that was left by Wikistates and not filled by NSWiki. It, as of July 2015, hosts over 19,000 articles. Anyone is welcome to use IIWiki regardless of what tech level they play, how long they have been on the site, how skilled they are as roleplayers, et cetera.

Our IRC channel is #IIWiki on the Esper IRC network and we encourage anyone interested in the wiki to visit the channel. Happy writing, and thank you. Thank you to Milograd for creating the OP.

— The Staff of IIWiki



Announcements

7/30/15: Due to our growing size, the server will need to be updated soon. We will keep you apprised of all the details. We have also posted a new thread here on NS to better keep in touch with the community.

11/27/12: IIWiki now has its own tag on NationStates!

11/7/12: IIWiki finally has an official thread on the Nationstates forum. It is a work in progress and will be updated to be more comprehensive and informative from time to time. Players of Nationstates and users of the wiki are encouraged to discuss topics pertaining to the wiki therein, though it is not meant to serve as a substitute to the wiki's discussion pages or IRC channel.

I just love that new thread smell.

What's the ETA on the new server?

Presumably the lack of a toolbar is related to the lack of server space?

I'll hopefully get it all ironed out tomorrow! Without your notice, I've already begun much of the process. I will try to ensure that there is not any downtime, but there will have to be some read-only time when I transfer the files over which may take up to an hour due to our size (hopefully less). I will keep you all posted. It should be a breeze though, I hope!

Nope? If you are referring to the sidebar on the left, I see it and just verified with others that it is also there. Could you send me a screenshot? And let me know what browser/version/OS you are using.

No, I'm referring to the toolbar which appears when editing which has special characters and other things.

Seems to be good to me.

Also, in other news, our server move is well under way! Everything seems to be good, the big move has already happened so there should not be anymore downtime.

It seem that the wiki is having some ads.

As long as its not splashed everywhere I'm fine with that

I added them to cover the cost of the server. They will only be in the sidebar. If you find them bothersome and won't click on them anyways, send me a TG and I should be able to remove them for you or add a way for users to hide them.

Ah ok.

By the way, there seems to be something wrong with the pictures we used from the Wikimedia Commons.

Yeah, the issue is in fact with the rendering of SVG images (which just happen to be most of the images from Wikimedia Commons). Don't worry about it, I'll get it working soon, it is just part of the server move/upgrade. But, thanks for letting me know.

I went back on to edit again and there's still nothing. It's just a box for editing and that's it. No toolbar for special characters and symbols or buttons for links, etc.

Hit "CTRL+F5."

If that does not fix it: what browser (and its version) are you using and what operating system are you using?

I'm on Chrome. It's worked before.

It's working now but not sure why it wasn't before. I did do CTRL +F5 a couple of times but it didn't work then.

It's not just the SVG images, apparently. The SVG files were lost and the non-SVG files are not working in thumbnails.

I'll try to get it fixed tomorrow. What I thought was the issue turned out not to be the issue. My current theory is it is an issue with the firewall blocking the commons.

Hey,

there is this thing:

"[[{{#property:vessel class}}]] Imported from Wikidata (?)"

and I can't find what it belongs to? Can someone help?

can we add Template: Motorcyles?

Alright! I think I figured it all out. Sorry about that. It turned out to be an issue with Mediawiki changing the way it handles the common images sync and we needing to reconfigure some things on the server. Should all be good now, let me know if you notice anything awry.

The #property looks to me to be a direct invocation of Lua Templates, but not 100% sure. And added Motorcycles template!

Done. In the future, please lodge such requests with an administrator directly; you're more likely to get a timely response that way. :)

Unfortunately on my side the Common images are still not showing.

On my equipment pages (I had to re-upload some stuff for my main) none of the common images are showing up apart from the ones uploaded on iiWiki.

Also, the Pie Chart template messed up as well.
