Thank you! That seems reasonable. Heron 21:01, 1 February 2018 (EST)

Regarding photobucket... That seems reasonable, I would like to have some alternatives to suggest first, so I will look into it a bit more. BlackBart 01:19, 7 October 2017 (EDT)

Regarding the database error, what page where you editing, and what category where you trying to add? I would like to see if I ge tthe same error. Thanks, BlackBart 23:16, 21 October 2017 (EDT)

I removed the Master Bushi category from Yoto's page, that should also "delete" the category page, although the real issue is that the category was never created. That is also why it seemed like it was broken. Basically if you add a page to a category that does not exist, it will populate the page, but still does not consider it to be created until you edit it, and put some info there.BlackBart 14:46, 23 October 2017 (EDT)

Right. I'm finding a LOT of those. I've been going through and fixing as many as I can. Most cases are simply misspells. Gray 14:49, 23 October 2017 (EDT)

Also, it isn't really necessary to mark orphaned photos as AFD, there is a special report page that shows all of them, I have been meaning to go remove the older ones, just been lazy, by the way, I appreciate all the help you have been giving, feel free to contact me anytime on facebook.

My pleasure. I enjoy going through the system and fixing little problems. You sure can learn a lot by tracking down broken links. Lol. But ya, I'll send you a Friend Request. ~Alex~ Gray 07:08, 24 October 2017 (EDT)

403 errors: These pretty much always occur when the sql-injection protection does not like a particular word/word order on a page. The way to fix these is to go down a page deleting each item one at a time, and hitting preview (preview will also give the error). Once it will allow a preview, you can back up, and start adding items back in, until you isolate which word it is that is causing the error. At which point all you can do is change the wording of that phrase. If you don't feel like dealing with all that, feel free to send me a link to any page that is currently getting this error.

Nautical Nights: Perhaps I'm doing it on purpose to give you work :) Nah, I'm just not finished with it yet. The final step in the process for me is to go to each and every page, and make sure all the links and categories are correct. And to do a quick proof read, although errors still slip through.

Photobucket Images no longer supported due to 3rd Party Hosting: One person suggested imgbb as a potential offsite host, please test that one as well. BlackBart 09:51, 22 December 2017 (EST)

I will have to think a bit about the kingdom category issue in BS. My immediate reaction is to leave them be, as we often maintain pages etc for historical purposes. I will give it some thought. BlackBart 00:56, 30 December 2017 (EST)

RE: non-standard player pages. There is no rule requiring that they follow the same format in the player template. It is listed as a "General Guide" if you look on the policies page. So I don't have an issue with them taking creative license to personalize their pages. I guess Linden felt otherwise about it back in the day, but that was before my time as an admin. As to multiple photos on the wiki, I only see 2 on the Ruby Roison page, and the only comment I see to Hananoshi has been to ask them to use the preview button. So I'll give them a warning about it. The problem that stands out on the User:Tesla Ketsune page, is that it is a user page, so it needs to be moved to Tesla Ketsune.

I have already fixed the 403 error that was listed on my page.Thanks! BlackBart 12:31, 25 March 2018 (EDT)

Thanks, I appreciate that, I had been working on the supplemental rulebooks, and realized there were better ways to organize most rulebook related categories, will be quite a project. BlackBart 15:26, 10 May 2018 (EDT)
