* Don't Panic! We're just in the process of moving the Mafia Scum Wiki over to the MediaWiki software (see button at bottom right of page).

    • If you'd like to help out, feel free to peruse the list of "most wanted" pages and copy those that are old, stable, or "definition"-type pages from the old wiki to here. Another option is to look at the Transwiki list, which will show all pages that have not been transferred yet as redlinks. -- Mr. Flay 16:36, 25 January 2007 (MST)
  • The MafiaScum introduction on the main page talks about "I". Who wrote this originally? We should make reference to that person or change the word. _ Mgm 01:20, 31 January 2007 (MST)
    • I agree: I've done this now. I also took out the bit about "a drunk IS" - it struck me as an in joke that was more likely to put people off and inappropriate for the front page. -Stoofer 09:45, 31 January 2007 (MST)
      • That section shouldn't really have been used in the first place; I wrote it for the original About page, long before the first wiki was made, and it made a little more sense in context. jeep was just trying to incorporate all that old stuff in the wiki, and I guess no one wanted to touch it once it was there. --WikiSysop 04:42, 10 February 2007 (MST)
  • Is the Administration section of this page still relevant/applicable -Stoofer 09:45, 31 January 2007 (MST)

Help 2

I am having the same problem as the person above. Username Atheous [1], this is the info I posted in another part of the wiki [2], I just saw this part today.

 == Account Problem ==
 :Posting here as I can't post as a Guest on the forums. Tried clearing cookies and using different browsers and computers. 
 :Created this account on the 4th of July, got an e-mail telling me to wait for activation. Nothing has happened yet and newer 
 accounts since mine have been activated.
 :Tried e-mailing mith and JEEP to no avail (spam filters?).
 :This is my account (does not appear on the members list).
 ::http://www.mafiascum.net/forum/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=7559
 :Hope someone is able to help me here, if not I would appreciate it if someone could cut and paste this message here into this 
 thread [3].
 :Thank you,
 :Atheous
 Edit: Quite a few other people seem to be having the same problem, "sam Cullen" "samCullen" "leech" "locke" "p3nguin" 
 to name a few of the possibles. Maybe it is a general problem with registration.

Thanks very much Mr. Flay.

Interesting Facts

A lot of wikis have interesting facts up, do you think we could do this on the front page, and change it once a week or something? - Fritzler 21:37, 25 September 2007 (MDT)

I think that's a good idea. What sort of facts did you have in mind? -- Mr. Flay 11:37, 2 October 2007 (MDT)

If we can get enough facts, perhaps we can get an "On this day..." on the Front Page. It can be simple things like games which began and finished on each day. We could use a similar method that Wikipedia uses. A page on Mafiawiki: created for each day which can be edited with events for each day, then transcluded into the main page with the {{CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{CURRENTDAY}} variables. somestrangeflea 10:24, 24 November 2007 (MST)

i think...

we should move the introduction of this page to Mafia (game) and put an introduction to MafiaWiki here... what do you think?

Future Editions

I know how theres a reason why only a few people can edit this page so I have decided that we need to make a section where people can say what they need on this page for example maybe you want Forums on this page etc. -Max 11:59, 26 November 2007 (MST)

actually, this page is not protected... anyone can edit it... originally i protected it b/c this page is a hotspot for spammers, but Mr. Flay unprotected it b/c we get a lot of IP requests here... can anyone think of a happy medium?.. maybe Talk:Help?..
   – Dani Banani (talkcontribs) 08:31, 12.16.2007 (UTC)
Can this page please be protected again? I had to undo 5 or 6 spam edits just today! 62.163.86.191 12:56, 12 May 2008 (MDT)
I'll try semi-protecting it, but we need somewhere clear for people to go when they have questions... maybe an infobox at the top of the page directing them to talk:Help? -- Mr. Flay 16:33, 12 May 2008 (MDT)

Nice site!

Moving the wiki?

Could we remove that part until it's actually going to be moved? It's only been 4 months.

Uploading Files

Any idea when we can upload files again? AFAIK, this prevents updates of avatars. --yawetag 02:11, 6 March 2010 (EST)

Articles link from main page doesn't go anywhere

Suggestion changing it to http://wiki.mafiascum.net/index.php?title=Category:Articles from http://wiki.mafiascum.net/index.php?title=Main_Page#Category:Articles

Images are borked

Currently, any attempt at creating an image thumbnail (i.e. displaying an image at a reduced size, which is often useful) results in this error:

Error creating thumbnail: /usr/local/bin/convert: not found

I suggest that whoever maintains the wiki go to http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Image_administration and fix the problem.

It would also be nice if we updated from 1.16.0, since not only is it three years old, but it's been obsolete and unsupported for over a year.

And while I'm here I'll also point out that the collapsible table code isn't working for some reason. That may also need to be updated. Toomai Glittershine 23:41, 25 April 2013 (EDT)
