Hey troll enthusiasts! I am very happy to announce to you all that I just installed DataDump on my wiki, so now I can regularly back up Trollpedia.

Trolls had the luxury to take down the wiki for a while now and undo all the work done there, but they’re too late! But not only that, I could have done something that could have caused the wiki to go permanently offline like Aediot; the previous head honcho of Encyclopedia Dramatica, since I am new to this webmaster stuff.

If I had issues installing it I had another extension ready to be deployed called “DumpsOnDemand” and I still do just in case, though I am more familiar with DataDump, so that is my prefered choice.

In other news

The wiki now officially supports spoilers, I installed an extension for that. That is not really the most important thing it needs, I still have to fix some other issues with the wiki, but it is there if anyone needs it. Otherwise, we have the template available too, which still works the last time I checked.

Peace out!

There is a gif file on Miraheze that won’t download, it gives me “18 errors – transfer closed with outstanding read data remaining”.

It was completely fine when I sent it to Miraheze 1 year ago, so did it somehow get damaged? Can gif files corrupt themselves or did it get corrupted because of Miraheze? I will not be pointing fingers at the moment because I have no idea why that problem happens.

For reference, here’s the file:

It should display normally since it is an img tag linking back to Miraheze, but that is it really. Now, it is not really important since it was just used once to warn a troll, it is not used constructively anywhere on the wiki, so I’d say whatever.

It came to my attention that emails sent from Trollpedia would not come through, in fact, those same emails came back to me with this short message attached:

I’m sorry to have to inform you that your message could not
be delivered to one or more recipients. It’s attached below.

As well as the forwarded email.

I am working to get this fixed, but in the meantime please write down your password on a piece of paper, otherwise, you won’t be able to recover your account if you ever forget the password.

If you do forget your password and are unable to log in, get in touch with an admin to get your account back.

Hello, folks! You are on the first blog post on that beautiful WordPress site.

This is mostly to try out WordPress.


Anyway, as you have read in the title I had a few issues setting up this website.

There is the following error below I get whenever I set Mediawiki to Memcached.

A PHP error.

I know my host supports Memcached, so I really do not understand what it entails and the error gives me no result when doing a simple Google search. At the end of the day, I thought it was better to set Mediawiki to “Cache Anything” instead, works like a charm.
