RationalWiki Upgrade 2017

Since this morning, RationalWiki.org is running on MediaWiki 1.27.

This is a bit of a facade, since it's just a snapshot which Tim Starling imported and upgraded as a dry run.

This database will be dropped and recreated, so any edits you make will be lost. Sorry!

In addition, search and several other functions are not done yet and will give PHP errors.

Join the coalition

A grand combination is about to take place- a grand unity between Fat Aardvark and Paravant. Fat Aardvark shall be the military strategist and Paravant shall assume his old role of dictator.

Join us.— Unsigned, by: MLC2 / talk / contribs

So I know we got off to a bad start...

Why not bury the hatchet eh? Also lets be on first name terms, nice to meet you I'm 4ardvark— Unsigned, by: FuzzyCatTomato / talk / contribs

I salute your bravery.

It's obvious that /r/AznIdentity is now vandalizing our edits. Is there any way to block users coming from there? Or to ban users who try and remove the entry and replace it with totally non-offensive ones? — Unsigned, by: 10101 / talk / contribs

Strange as it is for an IP-addressed user to say, perhaps edit privileges should be limited in some way? Heaven knows /r/Aznidentity is quite the handful, and they've already demonstrated poor behaviour here.— Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

looking into issue

this user is requesting user FuzzyCatPotato to look into the issue of the most recent vandal-binning imposed upon this user, which this user considers to be a misplaced one. this user noticed that user FuzzyCatPotato possesses administrative powers over other administrators, thus summoning the user.this user might be on a wrong observation. — Unsigned, by: FAMAS / talk / contribs

MediaWiki:Titleblacklist vs Special:Abusefilter

It looks like you can prevent account creation with the abuse filter, if it works should it be implemented? If someone keeps trying to create an account eventually they'll make one and the abuse filter is less likely to catch their edits. Christopher (talk) 11:45, 18 June 2017 (UTC)

Yep, we already do so. Check Filter 11. 32℉uzzy; 0℃atPotato (talk/stalk) 14:15, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
Do we? I've never seen an account creation being stopped by the edit filter (except filter 5) and accounts with "hitler" or "faggot" in their name are created fairly often, they just can't edit. Christopher (talk) 19:53, 18 June 2017 (UTC)

FCP has a short schlong

Short and full of hairy mold. MoldyCatPotato (talk) 16:11, 23 June 2017 (UTC)

How scandalous. Fuzzy "Cat" Potato, Jr. (talk/stalk) 16:12, 23 June 2017 (UTC)

Protecting the saloon bar

Given that there have been only three acts of vandalism (unless I'm missing one), is it really necessary? Christopher (talk) 16:42, 23 June 2017 (UTC)

Easier to protect. IMO: Vandal tries to edit, gets stopped, is more likely to stop other vandalism. FuzzyCatPotato!™ (talk/stalk) 17:18, 23 June 2017 (UTC)
