Exactly what the title says, it says incorrect password everytime i try to log in, So far i've tried

  • Resetting my Password (Twice!)
  • Logging out of the wiki, then trying to log into the forums
  • Clearing my Cookies
  • Using a different browser (FireFox, Normally i use Google Chrome.)
  • Entering my old passwords

I was going to log into the forums to request a copy of Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.

A few days ago you posted this tweet. I was wondering if there was any way you could make that information publicly available on a page on this wiki so we know which articles are getting the most attention and we can be efficient in the amount of time we spend editing articles.

Thanks, nicereddy

This looks interesting, I hadn't considered the use of bots, which is strange as Wikipedia relies on them so much.

For example, I'd like to do something to move every page from the old Template:SysReq to the new Template: System Requirements.

Hey Andy,

Just wanted to let you know my Semester 1 exams are over at uni, and I'm planning to start working on the wiki over the next few days again, maybe updating some of my older articles in line with the latest sample article and continuing my GPU guide which was about 50% complete.

Regards,

Hey, don't know how realistic this is - just posting it here for posterity.

Basically, my idea is that at some point we introduce a box on the homepage that automatically grabs the Top 5 "Top Sellers" on Steam and links to their articles on PCGW. Obviously it would automatically update with Steam. I guess it just depends on what the Steam API is like?

Hey Andy, on the homepage the Recently Edited box has two columns for Windows games. Was this by design? Because I could've sworn a previous version of that box had one column for windows games and one column for games in general. Just wondering.

Andytizer (talkcontribs)

The first Windows box is recently edited Windows games 1-8, 2nd one is 9-16. I acknowledge it's confusing, and I'll be changing it soon.

This will most likely be when we start adding in a bunch of new features, including a big overhaul of the forum system.

You never talk to me anymore, Hows it going? Hows the site? Anything going on? any requests?

Hey man sorry for not contacting you for ages - everything's running so smoothly server-side there isn't much to say at the moment :D. Traffic is steadily climbing, I have another Kickstarter planned soon, everything's going well.

There are a couple of things you could do which would be great:

1) Install PHPBB3 to pcgaming.com/forum with either single sign on, or some other simple integrated account method, such as using PCGamingWiki as an OpenID server?

2) Install Wordpress to pcgamingwiki.com/blog

3) Any ideas on how to embed RSS feeds into MediaWiki? Most extensions out of date. I was thinking of using a third party RSS aggregator and then using HTMLets to embed somewhere.

JRWR (talkcontribs)

PHPBB3 -> Mediawiki sounds fun, Ill look into it


Wordpress should be easy

I would use a HTMLet, something javascripty

JRWR (talkcontribs)

oh and can I get a PCGW T-Shirt? Size fatass please (4XL+)

Andytizer (talkcontribs)

Sure thing, I'll add in an order for you if the Kickstarter is successful.

forums and blog are coming online at this time, please note that nginx might restart a few times :)

Thanks, this looks great. The RSS thing looks good, I'll be using it to feed our Steam group, blogs or forum posts into the main wiki page.

Could you move the blog and forum into subfolders? e.g. pcgamingwiki/forum annd /blog please, thanks.

<grumbles under breath>

Its not really something easy to do, I suggest that it is NOT under a subfolder of the main domain, mostly for wordpress/phpbb like being in their own server block, I can do it, but its going to get super messy and fuck with the wiki a bit

Also for auth on phpbb, I have to build that one by hand, its going to take a few days, all the old auth code is all way out of date

Thanks for sorting this out, it's very much appreciated. Let me know if I can help with anything.

I have been getting feedback that we need to develop a stronger community here, and I think that a forum will really be the key to this. Sometimes, forums even outgrow their parent sites, which is what could happen here.

Andytizer (talkcontribs)

Okay that's cool. Is there any way to 301 the folders /blog and /forum to the relevant subdomains?

Hey Andy. The IRC page is broken, complaining about a missing HTML file. The Fullscreen webchat works however.

Andytizer (talkcontribs)

Thanks! I'll check this out..

We made some server side changes which should have made the site loads faster - but seems to have changed the htmlets extension folder. I'll try to fix this soon.
