Just to let you know, there is likely to be a short database lock today to allow for a MediaWiki upgrade. The time isn't set yet, I'll let you know if and when I get more information -- sannse (talk) 08:11, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

  • Thank you for that notification, Sannse. -- Riffsyphon1024 08:19, 8 June 2006 (UTC
This is now scheduled for around 19:00 (UTC) today (world clock). The whole process should take less than an hour - all subject to the whole thing going smoothly of course! -- sannse (talk) 11:20, 8 June 2006 (UTC)
And now the upgrade has been delayed to 06:00 (UTC) [1]. RMF 21:25, 8 June 2006 (UTC)
Wow, something happened to the code during upgrade. The closing row and column tags (</tr>, </td>) within every single template on the wiki are now showing...--Sentry [Talk] 07:27, 9 June 2006 (UTC)
And so they are. I'm going to bed now (it's 2:40 AM here), but {{sld}} needs to be updated to accommodate the new software quirks and all the major templates regenerated to fix the problem. Sikon may be on later; he knows how to fix it. RMF 07:41, 9 June 2006 (UTC)
Jason is going to fix this serverside, please don't change tables here or remove the tags (or you'll only have to do it again later ;). Thanks -- sannse (talk) 07:52, 9 June 2006 (UTC)
And that's that over... until next time ;) Please let us know of any bugs -- sannse (talk) 12:08, 9 June 2006 (UTC)
    • Yes, there have been some complications. As of now, we are running the old version because the new one was running very slow, but JasonR is working on it. RMF 21:37, 9 June 2006 (UTC)
      • Another interesting bug: Near the top of the Recent changes page, it says "Below are the last 250 changes in the last 7 days, as of $3." This is a paid site now? :-P -- Ozzel 19:14, 10 June 2006 (UTC)
        • LOL. I noticed that and have been ignoring it, hoping it would clear up. -Finlayson 15:50, 12 June 2006 (UTC)
          • it going to stay like this? -- Ozzel 04:30, 14 June 2006 (UTC)
            • I take it we're keeping it then. -- Ozzel 23:10, 17 June 2006 (UTC)
  • I fixed the Recent changes thingy. --Imp 02:40, 18 June 2006 (UTC)
