  • Vandalism — Discussions regarding vandalism and spam.
  • Community Portal — The main discussion forum used for community-wide discussions about UESP's operations, policies, design, and improvement.
  • Reference Desk — This is the best place for questions about how to play Elder Scrolls games.

Specific requests can be made on these pages:

  • Bot Requests — This page can be used to request that one of the wiki's bots take on a task.

MediaWiki Upgrade to 1.28[edit]

The wiki upgrade to 1.28 is tentatively scheduled for this Wednesday, 9 Feb 2021 sometime in the morning EST. The dev wiki has been running 1.28 for a few months now for testing. Look for more updates here and on Discord. -- Daveh (talk) 20:33, 7 February 2022 (UTC)

I've just gone over the list of changes between 1.27 and 1.28 and virtually everything is internal, so I don't expect users to notice much difference between the two. That said, MediaWiki's fond of deprecating/removing things, so I suspect we'll have the usual round of tools that break because they were using some really old code. Overall, though, I expect this one to go more smoothly than many of our other upgrades (he said, completely jinxing it). Robin Hood(talk) 23:53, 7 February 2022 (UTC)

Upgrade[edit]

  • Stopping Job Runner -- We have to upgrade ElasticSearch for this upgrade so I'm stopping the job runner until that is completed. -- Daveh (talk) 14:19, 9 February 2022 (UTC)
  • Database Upgraded -- Daveh (talk) 16:01, 9 February 2022 (UTC)
  • Done --- All services should be back up and working under 1.28. -- Daveh (talk) 16:03, 9 February 2022 (UTC)

Issues[edit]

  • Syntax Highlighter Plugin Not Working -- I couldn't get the syntax highlighter plugin working with ElasticSearch so it is currently disabled. -- Daveh (talk) 16:04, 9 February 2022 (UTC)
  • Class 'Symfony\\Component\\Process\\ProcessBuilder -- Had to run composer install in extensions/SyntaxHighlight_GeSHi/ (assuming that fixed it). -- Daveh (talk) 16:27, 9 February 2022 (UTC)
  • Pages Not Displayed Correctly -- The cause is unclear, but some pages temporarily lost access to some of the MetaTemplate data. This caused empty entries or template code like {{{cat}}} to be displayed. Purging the page fixes the problem. Robin Hood(talk) 17:35, 10 February 2022 (UTC)

Working As Intended[edit]

  • Preferences Updated -- At some point (perhaps after viewing your preferences?), they may be automatically updated to use the Enhanced Editing Toolbar as well as enabling a few editing wizards. I believe this is intentional. The settings can be disabled by going into your preferences and unchecking the relevant items on the Editing tab. Robin Hood(talk) 17:59, 10 February 2022 (UTC)

Page Protection Requested[edit]

For the past few days, an anonymous editor has repeatedly added erroneous information to the Oblivion:Under Leveling page. After the second edit, I politely explained to the user why their edit was incorrect with regards to the vanilla game and the likely source of the erroneous information, but the user apparently ignored both my post and my request to start a talk page topic before editing the page again, requiring yet another revert. Given 3RR, I believe at least Semi-Protection for the page would be appropriate at this point to prevent the incorrect information being added yet again. Thanks for your time! — Wolfborn(Howl) 01:52, 1 April 2022 (UTC)

I have semi-protected the page for one month. —⁠Legoless (talk) 08:35, 1 April 2022 (UTC)

  • Skill Coefficients -- Done (but needs more checking due to the large changes involved this patch)!
  • Items -- Done!
  • Icons -- Done!
  • Maps -- Done!

Instagram[edit]

Our Instagram has grown considerably, to the point I'd like it listed on our sidebar. The link should be [1] and the displayed text should be "Instagram". A favicon similar to the previous ones should be uploaded and place next to the link in the same fashion. --AKB Talk Cont Mail 16:36, 23 May 2022 (UTC)

Another maintenance task will be to update File:Sidebar.png once this is done. —⁠Legoless (talk) 17:12, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
