is this wiki like Wikitruth or something?


Lots and lots of timeouts

I'm having a hard time today trying to update or even browse my wiki: it's excrutiatingly slow, and I'm getting lots and lots of timeout notices. What's up? Am I the only one? Is there a problem in edit this, or is it something with my provider? I'm guessing edit this, because I'm browsing around other sites just as easily as usual. -- 12:23, 13 December 2006 (EST)

Are there currently known problems with creating new wikis?

User:Peter.h Peter 07:06, 11 August 2006 (EDT): I can enter the desired name, but after the countdown reaches 0 (zero), I'm back at a position where I am informed that this wiki does not exist and am asked, whether I want to create it. ...Catch22...

I've got the very same problem. Hopefully it gets fixed soon! -- 09:09, 11 August 2006 (EDT)
ditto here!-- 19:00, 11 August 2006 (EDT)

Peter 02:46, 17 August 2006 (EDT): Seems to work now; I was successful in creating a new wiki.

Other situations to receive "There is no wiki by the name of..."

it gets worse! Tried to "leave a message" for User:RobKohr and got a similar response!-- 19:48, 11 August 2006 (EDT)
There is no wiki by the name of ?title=user_talk:robkohr&redirect=no.
Would you like to Create a wiki?
Are you sure that the error you listed is a problem. I get it once in a while when changing some preference or when moving pages. But it seems that this is just a bad redirect right after the action. As far as I am concerned, my desired action was always performed by the server, I just had to type something new into the addressbar. User:Jan 20:05, 11 August 2006 (EDT)
Are you referring to the inability to create a new wiki, or the problem I had when I tried to tell Rob?-- 20:18, 11 August 2006 (EDT)
User:Peter.h Peter 01:50, 12 August 2006 (EDT): Jan seems to talk about the latter sitation, thus I moved this into an own section. Maybe it is even time to move this to the Feedback page?

Problem Seems To Have Returned... I've just tried to create a wiki and experienced the same problem all these other people have had. It's 28 November, 2006. Thanks for any help.

I'm having the same problem. Try to make a wiki, keep getting cycled right back where I started. Come on, that's two YEARS and the problem hasn't been fixed. Free or not that's sad. --Faelan 22:14, 5 May 2008 (EDT)

Wiki n00b questions

I have some questions:

  • If I make a wiki, will its content be copywrited, so that no one can mess with it without my knowing? (unless it's on the wiki, which I will know)
  • Will the wiki be secret(like secret bases)
  • Will the wiki have certain problems that Wikia would not have?

How can I add a parser extension ?

Hi all,

I wrote a parser extension that enables 3D content in MediaWiki. I have it installed at home, but can I add it to my wiki on this site ?

More languages

Can I make Wikis in other langyages than English? 15:47, 2 October 2006 (EDT)

YOU SUCK. for the win. 17:13, 30 October 2006 (EST)

Math Support?

I'm looking forward to creating a wiki, but I need Math Support and I have checked it doesn't work on editthis. Will it be available anytime soon or should I look somewhere else? Thank you Failed to parse (Can't write to or create math temp directory): \\lim_{z\\rightarrow z_0} f(z)=f(z_0)\\,

I think they're working on it, but I'm not sure how soon it will be available. I know they have already noticed this problem and I'm guessing that will happen with the next update... -- 12:41, 3 December 2006 (EST)

Forgot Password

I changed my admin password for RocketWiki, and now i forgot it. Can you please reset it for me? -Rocket

The same is the case for destinpro07, would be great to get it back. The user "Timo" is the same as the admin but doesn't have the rights. -Timo/admin


I have a good idea, you could make this wiki so that it can give you: A Page, A Subwiki, AND a subwebsite! So instead of wikis, it also makes websites. If possible. --The thing 16:42, 26 October 2006 (EDT) (Not Logged In)

Really isn't a website just a wiki that visitors can't edit :) The same could be accomplished by just changing the permissions on the site to disallow edits by visitors.

= I NEED AN EXTENSION!!!!!!!!!!!!!= lisa k :(

Spam words

Can you add spam word to the list of blocked words

create a wiki tool

Is the create-a-wiki tool down? Whopper

Yes, it is, actually, I'm having problems too. -- 09:48, 2 December 2006 (EST)


when i create a wiki it hits 0 and then says there is no wiki by the name of ???? would you like to create a wiki the only time it works is when i type the word image but that is not the name i want the wiki to be

LOOK ABOVE. This problem is already acknowledged. There is no need to repeat the same problem. Next time, please read to see if the problem is already being discussed -- 12:38, 3 December 2006 (EST)

sponge wiki

Hey, everyone! I found a wiki! it's at [1]. It's for SpongeBob fans. --MacintoshApple 04:04, 4 December 2006 (EST)


is it possible to protect the wiki i strated with a password? -- 12:54, 5 December 2006 (EST)

You can set edit and view permission to signed in users. So only existing accountholders can view the wiki.
I already wrote about that here: How_to_administrate_your_wiki

Is editthis being maintained at all?

I'd like to know if editthis is being maintained at all. COnstant timeouts during the last days and accumulation of spam links in pages such as this one lead me to believe it isn't, and that makes me afraid that my wiki (where I've already spent many hours of hard work) may one day simply disappear.

Oh, and I just found out that now I can't even backup my wiki. It turns out some kind of error. Great. Just great.


How do I add a pic for the image logo url? Some body go on their right now. Somebody make that pic be the main pic.

Maybe you should ask your question at the Village Pump? Henry 21:01, 10 May 2007 (EDT)

The Menu

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but I'm wondering. I want to change around some links on the menu on the far left of the screen (with the links to The Main Page, Recent Changes etc.) on my Story Wiki, but I can't figure out where or how to. Can anybody help? - TheDenzel of The Story Wiki

The short answer is that you want to edit the page [[MediaWiki:Sidebar]] on your wiki. This is properly a question for Help:Desk, so if you need further explanation, please post your question there. —Stormraven (talk · contribs) 19:16, 11 May 2007 (EDT)

Oh, thanks. And sorry for posting on the wrong page. -- 20:14, 11 May 2007 (EDT)

Main Page

Is the main page (Wiki of the month, most popular wikis) going to be updated anytime soon?
