Hi, maybe you should consider banning the 209.47.94.52 IP. Only 'contribution' is spamming.

By the way, I think there should be a template requesting deletion of a page by sysop - something like speedy deletion at Wikipedia. That way we could get rid of empty pages left after cleaning spam.

Settings of the wiki[edit]

Hi, I've noticed, that there are probably some problems in configuration of the wiki.

First thing - e-mail system: when I tried to send an e-mail to one of the users, I got notice that I need to be logged in and provide my address. I've got this message despite that I was logged in and I did provide my e-mail address. I checked this, with Hassat Hunter and he experienced the same problem.

Secondly, when I've moved a page I got a message that I need to be logged in (when I was logged in).

Third thing - when I'm banning a spammer I'm getting a message that says something like I do not have sufficient permission to do that.

Common to this three problems is that in spite of receiving those nagging messages, I'm able to perform all of those actions! Upon receiving one of those notices, in the address bar there is one of the php stuff saying that action was in fact successful.

Maybe you can help with that? :) Regards, Sir Dagon 02:09, 1 January 2008 (EST)

  • The reason that happens is that when you perform the action, the address switches from http://www.majestypalace.com/ to http://majestypalace.com/ (without the www). Since with or without the www are considered unique addresses, if you had only been logged in with the with-www address, when the address changes to without-www, you are no longer logged in. I've noticed this a while ago but didn't see any obvious reason why it would switch addresses. The work around is to also log in using the no-www address.

I thought one of addresses is just a redirect to the second one... If the problem is not simply a matter of changing some setting than it is probably not worth the time :). Anyway, thanks for the info! Sir Dagon 12:26, 5 January 2008 (EST)

Imp Strategy[edit]

Am I to understand that your strategy for reducing the damage caused by imp encounters is to use a combination of monster detection potions, teleportation, and setting your flee HP value to your maximum HP value, there by automatically fleeing from all encounters (unless you change the flee value in the options menu)?

  • Yes. It's all written in the forum, as well. --Veneficus 01:26, 7 September 2008 (EDT)

Hey Ven, Nice job on the Imp strategy guide (you are very good at writing them). I have an update for you. I appears there is a bug in the game code. If you go above a certain base speed it acts like speed zero. That appears to be what happened to the greater Imps. There speed was actually higher than the lesser Imps, but apparently it was too high and the game bug reduced it to zero. Until this bug is resolved, I set the speed of the Greater Imps to the same as the Lesser Imps. Sorry it took so long to fix this, but I'm been away many months (almost a year). Take care. --Dumble Dwarf 15:51, 19 July 2009 (EDT)

Wiki Icon[edit]

I've created an icon for the wiki web page's header based on the Majesty shortcut icon. If you'd like to use it for the header bar please mail me at blackcat1313TAgmailTODcom and I will send you the .ico file for the page.

Recent wave of spam[edit]

Hi!

I don't know much about the wiki software but would it be possible to set some kind of filter that would prevent creation of new pages based on their content? For example all those recent spam pages contain html tags (and normal pages do not) - if a filter based on that could be set up it would probably stop this spammers completely. I did a quick search and found http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Combating_spam#Edit_filtering. Can it (or similar mechanism) be used on our wiki?
