Garden Pot page is using MediaWiki page template instead of Stardew Valley Wiki page template

Found this issue randomly; not sure if any other pages are affected. Tried a different browser, same issue. Other pages that I've looked at so far are fine.

Try refreshing the page, or switching to "Desktop" view and then back. The wiki remembers your settings for some pages (for example, when I test mobile view on one page, some other pages will also display in mobile view, but not all of them.) Also make sure your "Preferences" are set to "Vector" and not "MinervaNeue". margotbean (talk) 14:34, 25 January 2023 (UTC)
I hadn't actually tested on mobile; this was on a desktop browser. I checked on my phone, and non-desktop mode shows the correct template. When I switch to desktop mode, it goes back to the wrong template. I had tested on both Chrome and Chromium on my PC and they both exhibited the same issue, with cleared cache and cookies. I also checked in empty profiles in Firefox and Edge (both on PC) and they both exhibit the same issue. Techhat (talk) 14:43, 25 January 2023 (UTC)
Ok, when I open any wiki page in an incognito tab (using Chrome browser on a desktop), then click "mobile view", the skin is MinervaNeue. That shouldn't happen. I'll let the server people know. Thanks! margotbean (talk) 15:02, 25 January 2023 (UTC)
The server people are working on a fix, but for now, you can purge the page, and that should make it display correctly. Just click in the url bar in your browser, and go to the end of the address, then type (or copy/paste) ?action=purge, then hit "enter". Hope this helps! margotbean (talk) 18:28, 8 February 2023 (UTC)

Display problem of the german version of the homepage

SDV Wiki de.png

Good day all, since some time the German version of the homepage makes some display errors left missing the background frame and overlaps with the text of the post and top in the header is the display not quite right.

I have made a screenshot of it: BigLink (talk) 04:53, 18 March 2023

I will inform the server people of the problem. In the meantime, you can use the Google Chrome browser, or sign in to your account, and make sure to check the box that says "keep me signed in". The issue only appears to affect users who aren't signed in.
Thanks for reporting this! margotbean (talk) 16:07, 18 March 2023 (UTC)
Update -- the server people have fixed the issue. Please report back if it happens again. Thank you, margotbean (talk) 17:38, 18 March 2023 (UTC)
I see the same thing on the English wiki, but only when not logged-in. = Paul2520 (talk) 16:02, 8 May 2023 (UTC)
Thank you, I've reported it to the server people. margotbean (talk) 17:59, 8 May 2023 (UTC)

AbuseFilters 7 and 8

I've noticed you've used those filters to make makeshift title and username blacklists. Because AbuseFilter runs on every action, these would be better served by MediaWikiWiki:Extension:TitleBlacklist.

(That said, I'm sure that 2 extra AbuseFilters running on your 30-ish daily actions is causing dozens of bytes of additional RAM to be consumed on your server hardware. :P) Snowmanonahoe (talk) 20:55, 19 May 2023 (UTC)

The images are being really weird

This hasn't always been this way but I don't know when it started

Hello dear Admin. I'm not sure what's going on but this has been happening for months however it hasn't always been like this. I can't remember when it started but it's been at least I believe six months. I thought it could have been my extentions but I tested and it wasn't. I'm using Opera GX and I checked with Google and this didn't happen. Could it be Opera GX interacting in some way? Is it a glitch? The only way I can describe it is that it looks like black and white were inverted and maybe the color contrast was cranked up. Any idea how to fix this if it's not a bug?

Check your browser extensions for something labeled "dark theme" or with the word "dark" in it, and disable it. Or, turn off "Force dark pages" in Advanced settings. If that doesn't work, I can't help you. Send feedback to the developers of the browser asking for help, and you might find more useful tips. margotbean (talk) 23:02, 4 June 2023 (UTC)


I don't know if it's necessary to report it or not, but User:Mike. vandalized the Ginger Island page. I have edited it out. IntricateSpiral (talk) 16:28, 6 August 2023 (UTC)

Hello IntricateSpiral! It's not necessary to report all instances of vandalism, but thank you for cleaning up!! margotbean (talk) 19:43, 6 August 2023 (UTC)
