Some problems about Chinese wiki

After moving back the wiki to the old domain, there are some problems on Chinese wiki that I can't solve. So I post these problems here, hoping that any administrator can help me. Emojis076.png

  1. The namespace of 使用模组 (means "using modding") which is translated inappropriately has been moved to 模组 (means "modding"). I had created two pages 模组:使用指南/header and 模组:物品数据 before changing namespace, but now these two pages are gone. They are still under the namespace Main, and can be searched using the search bar. Is there any way to recover these two pages other than copying the content directly from ?
  2. I have to asking for moving my bot account Horizon Bot into Bots Group again. Katzeus helped move the account: User_talk:Katzeus.
  3. The links of 苹果酒森林 (Cindersap Forest) and 冒险家公会 (Adventurer's Guild) on the Chinese main page need to be updated to 煤矿森林 and 探险家公会 according to the translation in the game.
  4. I used to ask Margotbean for help on Chinese wiki (really thanks for his help), but I have noticed that he is not in the administrator group now. Does this means that I have to post on this page when I meet other problems in the future?
  5. The page Help:编辑入门(Help:Editing) could be re-added to the Chinese main page. Margotbean helped add this link before: User_talk:Katzeus

Besides these, I want to know why the talk pages, user_talk pages and user pages are not transfered to this site? Does every user have to copy their old pages manually? Thanks ! Horizon98 (talk) 11:02, 19 February 2021 (UTC)

Hello Horizon! I created the pages for #1, but you may have to mark the pages in the Main namespace for deletion (I searched for them but didn't find them, maybe you will have better luck!)
ColitoCole will have to give your bot the appropriate group rights, I don't seem to have that ability.
Cole and I are discussing how to handle the help page. It might go in the left sidebar instead of on the main page. It might need to be rewritten also. Unfortunately, I have to ask for your patience on that one.
User talk pages have to be moved manually, yes. Your old talk page is here:
At the moment, I can't edit Template:Mainmenu to change the links, but we're working on it.
Good to see you on the new wiki! margotbean (talk) 18:24, 19 February 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for all you have done! But 模组:使用指南/header and 模组:物品数据 are both under the Main namespace as well as the Modding namespace now. I don't know how to remove them from the Main namespace. Maybe there are two pages using the same title, and the page under the Main namespace is hidden. You can find them listed as the second and the third one from this link.

The tech people are working on it! Thanks for reporting these odd events, please keep doing so! margotbean (talk) 06:51, 21 February 2021 (UTC)

Nintendo Switch version of the game

I noticed that the Nintendo Switch version is missing on the main page and I was wondering if that is on purpose or on accident —Uhdoro (talk) 12:02, 21 February 2021‎ (UTC)

It's there for me. Are you seeing something different? —Pathoschild (talk) 17:40, 21 February 2021 (UTC)

Website Malfunction Database Problem

For the last 2 or 3 days certain wiki pages keep malfunctioning, displaying an error instead of the expected page. It was just happening again about an hour ago, but of course I can't replicate the problem right now when I want to copy/paste the exact error. The error says something about the database not working. It does seem to be pages that might want to load data which are affected (like specific item pages, eg. sap or oyster), so that makes sense. When it starts happening, it generally keeps happening and refreshing the page a few minutes later or trying a different item does not work.

If it happens again I'll try to edit this (first time user, but I assume I can edit... I'll "rtfm" later) with the error details. I'm fairly new to Stardew Valley and am referencing this site a _lot_... do you want me to keep updating this to let you know when it's down (or "PM" someone or something?). If this is a common occurrence for you and there's a big red "Restart Database" button you have somewhere that you press when it messes up, I would be willing to press it for you whenever I see that error start happening if that would be useful for you. Thank you for your great and useful wiki! Maxxie (talk) 02:07, 28 February 2021 (UTC)

Update: it's happening again. Here is the error I'm getting right now: Sorry! This site is experiencing technical difficulties. Try waiting a few minutes and reloading. (Cannot access the database)

That's all it shows, that text on a white background.

Interesting note: I just did view page source on it, and I see the source for the page that should be showing up. This can be used as a workaround for now for users like me to still access some of the information we're after even when it's erroring. Maxxie (talk) 05:20, 28 February 2021 (UTC)

I can reproduce this, e.g. with the Fall page. Signed in as a user: No issues. Signed out: always white page "Sorry! This site is experiencing technical difficulties. Try waiting a few minutes and reloading. (Cannot access the database)" Tested on multiple browsers and on 2 different internet connections - same result Dubesor (talk) 05:53, 28 February 2021 (UTC)
Try clearing your browser's cache (Ctrl+F5) or by going to "History" and clearing browsing data, and see if the problem persists. Please report back if this doesn't fix the issue. margotbean (talk) 20:17, 28 February 2021 (UTC)
cleared cache (one of my browser is set to reset everything on close anyways) and issue persists. This is an issue with certain pages only (I can reproduce always on: Fall, Sam, Ginger Island, Calendar for example) and is reported by several people (e.g. reddit). This issue was never present on the old wiki. Dubesor (talk) 21:07, 28 February 2021 (UTC)
OK, the server people are going to look into it. Thanks for reporting this issue! margotbean (talk) 21:23, 28 February 2021 (UTC)
For users experiencing this problem: The workaround is to add "?action=purge" to the end of the url, then click "ok" to purge cache. The page should display normally. --margotbean (talk) 21:38, 28 February 2021 (UTC)
