Seems like ShoutWiki is gonna lose Wikisimpsons. The vote is 7 to 3 for moving to independence. You screwed up big time. If there was another Wikifarm better than this, I would make a Bee line straight toward it after Autopedia (If ever) recovers. GET ON WITH IT. Your testing my patience!!!! --Silver Knight (talk) 08:51, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

I understand your frustration Silver, but making petty demands like this serves absolutely no use other than to annoy staff, especially when you're demanding instant action from someone who currently provides free hosting. I can assure you that ShoutWiki's support team is working around the clock to restore everything back to normal, and comments such as these only cause unnecessary distractions to the people that have dedicated their free time to this restoration. If you're so intent on requiring faster service, then you would probably be better off elsewhere. But that leads to your duly noted comment, "If there was another Wikifarm better than this...." There isn't. Plain and simple. ShoutWiki not only offers the best wiki-hosting, but the fastest technical support team as well. Beyond that, there's absolutely nothing any of us can do except wait it out. Supergeeky1 (talk) 13:18, 9 May 2011 (UTC)
The only farm better than this is Wikia - The only exception they have is the atrocious Wikia skin. The rest is way better than this. I can't stand it. ShoutWiki sucks. No joke!! IT JUST FRIGGIN SUCKS!!! --Silver Knight (talk) 13:29, 9 May 2011 (UTC)
Again, yelling doesn't get you anywhere. If you're seriously of the opinion that Wikia offers better support than ShoutWiki, which I find that rather hard to believe to be completely honest, then you're free to fill out Wikia's Special:Contact form, wait two or more months for a reply and pray to whatever deity you worship that they re-import your content. Obviously both Wikisimpsons and Autopedia would be missed, but it wouldn't be the end of ShoutWiki. That said, it would probably be a good idea to give Jack a break from all of these "SHOUTWIKI SUCKS!!11oneone!" messages and instead drop your feeling of superiority and direct your (preferably constructive) criticism elsewhere instead of clogging things up on Jack's end with unnecessary temper tantrums. Supergeeky1 (talk) 13:58, 9 May 2011 (UTC)
"Pray to whatever deity you worship" "unnecessary temper tantrums" So you want a fight huh? Trying to write me off. --Silver Knight (talk) 14:39, 9 May 2011 (UTC)
Alright, I'll cool down. I'll stick with ShoutWiki even if it takes 80 days..... Is that good enough for you? --Silver Knight (talk) 14:52, 9 May 2011 (UTC)
Could you make it eighty-three-fiddy days? We'd really appreciate it. Madclaw Talk 15:00, 9 May 2011 (UTC)
@Madclaw. I'm trying to stay cool and not explode. What do I get? An put down insult from you. --Silver Knight (talk) 15:29, 9 May 2011 (UTC)
Do or do not, there is no try Madclaw Talk 15:42, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

What's that supposed to mean? --Hockeyben (talk) 15:59, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

@Hockeyebn, Dude if you don't know I aint gonna tell you. Madclaw Talk 16:07, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

Dude, I never watched star wars. --Hockeyben (talk) 16:16, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

Looked it up, I know what it means now. --Hockeyben (talk) 16:23, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

Let's stay calm, everyone. We're working on restoring Autopedia and Simpsons Fanon, but it's something our technical staff is working on. If I could restore the wikis just by pressing a button, I'd have pressed it a long time ago. But alas, it's nowhere near that simple. --Jack Phoenix (talk) 16:26, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

What I'm really curios to know is why there were issues restoring Autopedia in the first place. I's there an older backup it can be restorerd from? What makes it and simpsons fanon different than the 698 wikis that were restored fine? Hockeyben (talk)<

Yes, it looks like Wikisimpsons is moving away from ShoutWiki. This is unfortunate as I like ShoutWiki a lot. However, I have to think about the wiki and I think moving away might help us. However, I would not appreciate you shouting at staff like this. That is not the reason ShoutWiki is called ShoutWiki. Also, please don't bring Wikisimpsons into your little argument with ShoutWiki staff. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 19:30, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

Silver's just incredibly annoyed. My question arises is Is there a February 28th backup that AP can be restored from. --Hockeyben (talk) 19:32, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

Okay, so its bad news..... If Autopedia recovers... I am out of here. All the effort we put into has turned to sand. --Silver Knight (talk) 00:25, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
Any ideas on how I can create a new wiki at --Silver Knight (talk) 00:33, 10 May 2011 (UTC)\
First of all why did Autopedia not make it? I need to know what caused it to be down. --Silver Knight (talk) 03:01, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

Semantic MediaWiki with Statistics-counted Namespaces

Hi Jack,
It seems I have a small issue on both Stargate Wiki (EN and FR) regarding semantic data. I use semantic on the Infobox Episode template. When we are on the mainspace, it works (for an example: "Children of the Gods"). When I use the Episode namespace, no semantic data appears (for an example: "Blockade"). Is it the fact that we need to enable semantic on all statistics-counted namespaces on both wikis? Thanks for your answer. Best Regards. --LIMAFOX76 (talk) 16:05, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

I didn't do that on purpose, Jack msg'd me about it on IRC but I have no idea as to what caused it, my appologies and may your firstborn be a masculant one. Madclaw Talk 16:19, 9 May 2011 (UTC)
No problem, Madclaw. --LIMAFOX76 (talk) 16:20, 9 May 2011 (UTC)
Hi LIMAFOX76, now that's quite odd. I believe it should work correctly; I've set $smwgShowFactbox = SMW_FACTBOX_NONEMPTY; for both wikis, which should make the factbox visible if the factboxes have some content (according to the Semantic MediaWiki manual).
Like I've said before, I'm no Semantic MediaWiki guru though, so maybe SMW developers could be of more use in this situation. If I recall correctly, they have a mailing list for SMW users — and the developers are generally very helpful.
In any case, I've requested our tech team to update the version of SMW that we use in bug #169 (comment #3). --Jack Phoenix (talk) 16:26, 9 May 2011 (UTC)
Jack, I found that on the configuration manuel:
$smwgNamespacesWithSemanticLinks = array(
	              NS_MAIN => true,
	              NS_TALK => false,
	              NS_USER => true,
	         NS_USER_TALK => false,
	           NS_PROJECT => true,
	      NS_PROJECT_TALK => false,
	             NS_IMAGE => true,
	        NS_IMAGE_TALK => false,
	         NS_MEDIAWIKI => false,
	    NS_MEDIAWIKI_TALK => false,
	          NS_TEMPLATE => false,
	     NS_TEMPLATE_TALK => false,
	              NS_HELP => true,
	         NS_HELP_TALK => false,
	          NS_CATEGORY => true,
	     NS_CATEGORY_TALK => false,
	     SMW_NS_PROPERTY  => true,
	          SMW_NS_TYPE => true,
	     SMW_NS_TYPE_TALK => false,
	       SMW_NS_CONCEPT => true,
	  SMW_NS_CONCEPT_TALK => false,

Does it help? --LIMAFOX76 (talk) 16:50, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

I clearly didn't look hard enough! I've added both wiki's custom namespaces into the $smwgNamespacesWithSemanticLinks array; do the factboxes show up on those namespaces now? --Jack Phoenix (talk) 17:00, 9 May 2011 (UTC)
As I said on IRC, it's working great. Thanks a lot. --LIMAFOX76 (talk) 17:19, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

Deletion thread

I accidentally deleted the Autopedia and Simpsons Fanon thread, I don't like the feature. --Hockeyben (talk) 00:16, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

We're planning to make the deletion features more intelligent in the future. Right now you can delete a thread, a forum or even an entire category easily by accident, as the software doesn't ask for a confirmation of any sort. --Jack Phoenix (talk) 13:06, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

Final goodbye

You screwed up and lost data. You spent TOO much time fixing it and equally as worse you neglected to tell us EVERY step to assure us of your progress. You went against your word to delete wikis stating that others MAY one day use them (just like Wikia), certain users refuse to accept your failure (not moving, just accepting that it was partly your fault) and are thus becoming EXACTLY like the users we left Wikia because of, instead of whooping Wikia ass, Shoutwiki is becoming more and more like them.

Shoutwiki is like excessive alcohol, things get better and better as you drink until you go to sleep, then you wake up and everything has gone to shit. Ban me, desysop me, do whatever you like, just know that you failed and it will cost you in the long run. Escyos (talk) 05:27, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

I'm leaving forever, if Autopedia goes down the drain. THINK about it. 4 years of hard work with 6000 articles. --Silver Knight (talk) 06:30, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
As a final goodbye you decided to block me on the English Stargate Wiki and to sabotage this wiki and insult me on my user page? --LIMAFOX76 (talk) 07:30, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
Silver Knight: The techs are still doing everything they can to restore Autopedia, and we are as frustrated as you are about this.
Escyos: If you had started a community vote on Stargate and the community wanted to move you would have gotten all the help we could offer, but you didn't. You decided to leave on your own. Someone came by and wanted a Stargate wiki, we could have deleted yours, have him recreate it, have the techs needing to import stuff again and then what would we have accomplished? wasting valuable time while the end result is the same as what we started with, a Stargate wiki. At this point I feel it is safe to say we would rather have our techs working on a solution for, among others, the problem with Autopedia. Escyos, no offense, but you could have handled this better, a lot better. Resorting to verbal abuse and vandalism is never a valid option if you want people to listen to you. --Jedimca0ShoutWiki Staff(talk) 10:03, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
I don't like being accused of lying, especially when it's not true. One individual may create a wiki, but they certainly should not be allowed to delete it when there are other people on the wiki.
Thankfully the success of this service does not depend on your opinions, it depends on the users — what they think about us and so on. --Jack Phoenix (talk) 13:06, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
You better recover Autopedia because now I'm playing the role of the bad guy at Wikisimpsons for no reason.--Silver Knight (talk) 14:11, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
No U better check your tone, and stop acting like a little child, unless you are a little child in wich case you should sit back and let the grown-ups handle business. Madclaw Talk 14:30, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
Like I've said, it's out of my hands. Madclaw has a point, however — threatening rarely, if ever, gets you anywhere (but it just might get you into the court room in real life). I understand your frustration with the situation, but constantly annoying me about it is not going to achieve anything, I'm afraid. --Jack Phoenix (talk) 14:35, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

Please don't listen to Silver. He can leave, but Me, Red marquis and Coolow will stay and get wikicars imported. Don't you admire red marquis 4 years of dedication? And he can still have something to show for it if Misza writes the software. So quit threatening there is still hope here. --Hockeyben (talk) 14:38, 10 May 2011 (UTC)


You pushed me my button you fuckin' asshole. Fuck you bastard. you Check your tone. or I'll check it for you. And Go FUCK yourself in hell. I'm not the one who nicknames himself Dildo. I Don't care if you block me because your a motherfucker and I would take your head off in real life.

What is this "real life" you speak of? I have never encountered it around the internetz. Madclaw Talk 14:50, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

Silvers just frustrated. And madclaw, don't keep trying to set him off. --Hockeyben (talk) 14:53, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm just trying to keep peace in and incredibly tense situation here. Plain and simple: Madclaw stay away from Silver Knight, Silver Knight, stay away from Madclaw. --Hockeyben (talk) 14:56, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

No Silver Knight you should have checked your tone or you should have just ignored the comment, as of right now, my limit is reached... and frustration has nothing to do with it, I clearly remember asking not to do this sort of thing. You will have plenty of time to figure out what you did wrong here. Feel free to contact me via email once you do. --Jedimca0ShoutWiki Staff(talk) 14:57, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

Please let Autopedia continue. Think of the community. Think of Red Marquis who wasted four years and 100,000 edits of his time on wikicars. Please get misza to write the software. Think of Red marquis. --Hockeyben (talk) 14:59, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

  • We are doing everything we can for Autopedia, and don't worry, we won't let one user's actions decide what happens to a wiki. We gave Silver more then enough opportunities to calm down, he didn't... there's nothing you or I can change about that. --Jedimca0ShoutWiki Staff(talk) 15:26, 10 May 2011 (UTC)


Hi jack. Could comments and WikiForum be enabled on s:w:icehockey? Solar dragon said wikiforum is available upon request. Thank you Hockeyben (talk) 03:03, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

I've enabled Comments extension over there. If you need any help, take a look at the extension's help page. Do note that comment logging is off by default, so if you want it enabled, just let me know!
I'm reluctant about enabling WikiForum on more wikis currently, because there are a few bugs that I'd like to iron out and pull the latest i18n updates from before we go about enabling it on more and more wikis. It'd be cool if WikiForum could one day replace the widely-used DPLforum extension as wikis' forum extension of choice, though. :-) --Jack Phoenix (talk) 12:22, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

Could you enable comment logging? Also, I would like the prefix Blog: Not to be in the main namespace. As I use it has the blog system with the comments. Thanks And just a heads-up, your staff tag doesn't appear to be working.--Hockeyben (talk) 15:17, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

Comment logging enabled. Please be aware that it might be a bit buggy; this is a known bug. I've also created a new Blog namespace on the Ice Hockey Wiki (numerical index is 500; +1 for the talkspace).
As for my staff tag, I haven't set it in my preferences for this wiki. The way how preferences are stored changed in MediaWiki 1.16; before 1.16, they were stored in the user table (which is shared between all wikis), but in 1.16, they are stored in the new user_properties table, which is not — at least yet! — shared between all wikis. People would like to have separate local and global preferences, at least for some things (such as language, signature and skin). I've noted the preferences issue on bug #169, comment 2. Thanks for letting me know in any case — I must say that I didn't notice it! --Jack Phoenix (talk) 16:29, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

Great. Thanks. Hockeyben (talk) 16:36, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

Monobook dark look

Is there some CSS that can hide the monobook dark look. One of the users on my wiki dislikes it, but I don't want to remove it entirely. Hockeyben (talk) 01:27, 15 May 2011 (UTC)

I'd suggest poking Skizzerz to get bug #173 fixed; temporary hacks and other patchy solutions are rarely the best way of fixing a bug and they have a bad habit of becoming permanent "fixes". I don't think that fixing bug #173 is that difficult, especially since I already provided a patch. :) --Jack Phoenix (talk) 15:03, 15 May 2011 (UTC)


Any further updates/progress on the situation? Or does it look like we're likely going to have to go to Plan B? --Hockeyben (talk) 19:09, 15 May 2011 (UTC)

As far as I know, the status quo is still unchanged. Misza would know better as he's the tech working on it. If I find out anything new, I'll be sure to let you know. --Jack Phoenix ShoutWiki Staff (contact) 23:06, 15 May 2011 (UTC)

Spyro Wiki

The Spyro Wiki has another language site, which is in Spanish, and is also a part of ShoutWiki. But we've been having difficulty with connecting our pages to their Spanish counterpant (same goes for the Spanish wiki to English). Can you help us, please? I know you don't speak Spanish, but I've only got around 1.3 years worth of wiki skill in me, and I've never done this before. I would, at least, want to know how to connect the two sites. Gracias! UxieLover1994 12:46, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

Hola UxieLover1994,
hablo un poco de español, pero prefiero inglés. :-)
That being said, currently only ShoutWiki staff can link two sites (via Special:Interwiki — that special page is also used to alter interwiki links, in other words, links like this one to other (wiki) sites). I've set up the interlanguage links between s:w:en.spyro and s:w:es.spyro — you should be able to use the syntax [[es:Foo]] on the English wiki to link to the Spanish one and [[en:Foo]] on the Spanish wiki to link to the English one.

Please let me know if you need any further help with this, the concept of interlanguage links tends to be a bit complicated (especially since there are interwiki links, too, and many people confuse those two). --Jack Phoenix ShoutWiki Staff (contact) 12:57, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

Impresionante! Espero que algún día va a llegar a mi nivel :-)

Let misza know to go ahead with the importing script to import wikicars to autopedia . We can't wait any longer at autopedia. ThanksHockeyben - Talk 16:45, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

@Hockeyben, before we do that are you sure Misza can't recover it now? --Silver Knight (talk) 01:38, 27 May 2011 (UTC)

It's Been 70 days. There's like a 0.00001 % chance of it coming back (so I've heard). So the importing script is quick. Let's get ap back online.Hockeyben - Talk

We need staff to confirm that. --Silver Knight (talk) 04:08, 27 May 2011 (UTC)
It has been confirmed several times that both Simpsons Fanon and Autopedia have a very unlikely chance of recovering, if there's been no news at all this whole time, sure you can wait, or you can import Wikicars and continue to make your wiki awesome! --Will k 12:01, 29 May 2011 (UTC)
Thanks, I just need any staff to confirm us that it can't be recovered and we'll move to plan B --Silver Knight (talk) 08:44, 30 May 2011 (UTC)
I believe I'm not very much mistaken if I say that writing that importer script is going to be a lot faster and more reliable solution. I'll ping Misza about this. --Jack Phoenix ShoutWiki Staff (contact) 13:00, 30 May 2011 (UTC)

Well if the script is faster then safer, let him know to go ahead and write it. Unless he's one day away from recovering autopedia. I can't wait to edit it again. --Hockeyben - Talk 14:19, 30 May 2011 (UTC)

Hi, can you turn on the social tools extension for Fish Hooks Wiki please. I've tried emailing Customer Support but they've just opened a 'ticket' and I've tried using Special:Contact, but every time I click send, "Mail object returned error" comes up. Thanks, Phinbart. Phinbart (talk) 08:23, 30 May 2011 (UTC)

It's normally best to contact staff on their talk pages about enabling extensions. Did you know about the contact us bug Jack? I'm guessing you would have. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 11:22, 30 May 2011 (UTC)
I've enabled the social tools for the Fish Hooks Wiki. See the help page if you need any help with using these tools. Do note that the user levels are currently set to the default ones; they can be customized, of course.

Missing namespaces

Hi, you added two namespaces on Historica Wiki some time ago, but now, they are missing! It was Dokument and Imparatus namespaces - the pages I wrote in this namespaces are lost (see [1], there were pages like Imparatus:Hynek Bruntálský z Vrbna, now its just :Hynek Bruntálský z Vrbna and if you click on them, they dont exist).

Thanks! Talkspace translations? What? Where? --Silesianus (talk) 13:03, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
Names of the talk namespaces on Historica Wiki — Dokument's talkspace is currently named Diskuse k dokumentu and Imparatus' talkspace is named Diskuse k imparatus. I based my translations on the most up-to-date Czech translation of the MediaWiki interface but still, I can't say that I really understand Czech language well enough to do things like this, which is why it's best for a native speaker to take a look at my translations. --Jack Phoenix ShoutWiki Staff (contact) 14:57, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
Diskuse k dokumentu is correct, imparatus is latin adjective, so it is Diskuze k imparatu (inflected) or Diskuze k imparatus (not inflected). --Silesianus (talk) 15:10, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
Hi Jack,
All "my" wikis' extra namespaces are missing as well as Semantic MediaWiki on the Stargate Wikis. Do you have an explanation please and is it possible to recover everything? Thank you. --LIMAFOX76 (talk) 15:18, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
I am also missing my blog and forum namespaces on Ice Hockey Wiki. --Hockeyben - Talk 15:37, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
It seems that all project namespaces have been reset to the wiki name. See the french hub (Shoutwiki instead of Shouwiki Français). --LIMAFOX76 (talk) 16:50, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

At everyone, please open a bug on our bugzilla if you are missing namespaces, extensions, or your default skin got reverted and they will be fixed ASAP. Please be specific on what namespaces you are missing (and what they are called), which extensions you are missing, and what your default skin should be. --Skizzerz ShoutWiki Staff 16:47, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

Done for me : number 187. --LIMAFOX76 (talk) 17:17, 6 June 2011 (UTC)


Could you please add the EditSimilar extension to the Fish Hooks Wiki, please? Thanks. Phinbart - just one of the huge Bart fans! (talk) 20:32, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

I've filed this request as bug #188 on our Bugzilla. --Jack Phoenix ShoutWiki Staff (contact) 17:46, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

Czech Starter Wiki

Hi, here is written that if I want to create a new starter wiki, I should turn to CST. If I take it correctly, it is only the main page (something like template), which is insert in all new wikis of respective language. So I would like to create czech starter wiki, if possible. --Silesianus (talk) 07:10, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

Hi and thank you for your interest in making ShoutWiki even more awesome! I've created s:w:cs.starter for you and given you administrator rights there; as is with the other starter wikis, editing is limited to administrators only. You can ask a member of the Customer Support Team to give administrator rights to other Czech-speaking users who want to help out with the translation process, although I don't think it'll take that many minutes to translate the stuff on the English-language starter wiki. :-)
If you are interested in translating some of our custom features into Czech, please take a look at the Interface Messages Wiki and drop me a note — I'll be more than happy to give you administrator rights over there! --Jack Phoenix ShoutWiki Staff (contact) 17:46, 7 June 2011 (UTC)
Well, I'm done. How can I test, that it is working well? --Silesianus (talk) 06:37, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

wiki picture

Hi Jack,

Is there any way to change the picture that appears in the top-left of the wiki, the one that redirects back to the main page, to our club logo?

Cheers, Daniel.

Upload a new version of File:Wiki.png on that wiki. --Hockeyben - Talk 20:16, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

Deletion of wiki

Can you please delete Wesnoth Wiki? --Silesianus (talk) 11:35, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

Done. — LyntonShoutWiki Staff talkemail 11:36, 9 June 2011 (UTC)
Thanks and apologies. --Silesianus (talk) 11:39, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

Enabling subpages on extra-namespaces

Hi Jack,
Is it possible please to enable subpages on all "my" wikis extra-namespaces? Thank you very much.--LIMAFOX76 (talk) 17:43, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

Substituted signatures not working

Hi Jack,

I figured it was best to ask you this directly, since the forums and bugzills don't use signatures in the normal way.

I substitute my signature from a template, located individually on all ShoutWiki wikis at User:Michael von Preußen/sig. There has never been a problem before, but since I began editing semiregularly again since the database restoration, I've noticed that my signature is no longer working properly. Rather, when I save the page, it simply shows the code for the signature, as if it had been surrounded by <nowiki> tags. This necessitates saving the page a second time, in order for the signature to be properly substituted.

You will be able to see, using the history of this page, what I'm talking about (I'll edit direct links in in a moment). Is there any way this can be fixed?

Thanks, {{subst::User:Michael von Preußen/sig}}
