Decimals remain extremely broken everywhere. It seems to be the case that, for urban populations, if I use a comma and the figure is under a million, it will divide the number by one thousand and then round it up, which is extremely unhelpful when a town of 41,196 becomes "41.20". Wikipedia processes this just fine, which makes me wonder exactly what's going wrong.

We're likely missing a module we should have, have one we shouldn't have, or have a feature of a module enabled that shouldn't be. I'm looking into it.

Thanks for letting us now. Sadly, all we can do is ban the associated IP and undo the changes. We have no tolerance for spam/abuse and have permanently banned the infringing IP each time Alison Weir has spammed. Sadly, they are very persistent and it is not too difficult to use proxies in this day and age.

Please let us know if you notice it again. Thanks.

If you have the IP logs, you can alert their ISP or open a criminal investigation on grounds of malicious communications and misuse of computer laws. You can also use diffs as evidence of such misuse.

Hey, so infobox: settlement is doing some interesting stuff at the minute.

Its automatically construing population sizes to decimal places, and is only doing so to the city itself and the area.

I placed the area at 2,700 km, and it gave me 2.0 km, and the City population is 895k, but since its standard to put the full population (especially when under millions), I don't quite like that its shortening it. It seems to say that the Population of Russo itself is 895.77 people while the metro area is 10+ million, which is rather... interesting. Is there a fix for it?

Thank you in advance!.

Don't use the comma. The problem is that the template is set up to treat single commas as a decimal mark. So anything using a single comma (between the range of 1,000 and 999,999) will get treated as a decimal system instead (1.000 to 999.999). Using more than one comma (anything 1,000,000+) seems to force it to parse it as an actual comma. You don't need to use them at all since the template will automatically add them, although for some reason it also decides it wants to add decimals anyway (so the population would be listed as 895,000.00).

The template shouldn't have issues with using commas, though, if it's imported directly from Wikipedia which uses commas in its {{infobox settlement}} (e.g. here).

From what I can tell, this seems to happen when there is an exceptionally high request strain, leading the connection between the user end and the DB to just throw-up its hands and give-up for a while. This seems to happen when extensive templates are imported/deleted/changed or when there is a lot of image uploads (or a fairly large single image uploaded) in sequence. More often than not, it will resolve itself in 5-10 minutes (longest I've seen is around 15 and not be the sign of a major hiccup).

Since that article is causing significant issues and disrupting other users, I'm going to go ahead and delete it once the wiki is back up. This may cause a subsequent temporary 502 error again, but at least we'll be rid of it. If Esquarium wants a similar article, our best recommendation is to create individual articles by nation and link them on a single index page.

To be honest, while the ARDR page was a good idea in theory, I will openly admit (as its creator) that as a matter of practicality its simply not watched as well as it could be. It's why we've been suggesting people to contact administrators directly for those sorts of requests. When the server gets reset, I'll put it on my list to do a total re-write of the deletion/review process to streamline it, because the ARDR at this point is simply not feasible.
