Do you ever plan on fixing the wiki?

It's been a while now and nothing has been fixed, how long will this be?

--Tankman fan 44 (talk) 04:13, 1 July 2022 (CEST)

Honestly, I don't ever have the time due to working 40+ hours a week. I do still fix or patch minor stuff and as I'm not sure I know of every bug on the wiki, I may make a JIRA. Lawiki1534 (talk) 03:10, 2 July 2022 (CEST)
completely understandable. The only bugs I have noticed are that I can't see the add to watchlist button and the hover previews dont work. There might be more but for now that's all I've managed to spot.

Delete this account

Please delete my old account and ill make myself a new one; and it will be named User:Nouxia. --SkyBlueCat (talk) 09:37, 7 July 2022 (CEST)

And also can i have a permission to edit articles? --Nouxia (talk) 09:48, 7 July 2022 (CEST)
You can't delete accounts on MediaWiki, but I did courtesy vanish you. Lawiki1534 (talk) 04:11, 8 July 2022 (CEST)


Why did you delete my page I spend along time working on it

I didn't think it counted as a shock site. Lawiki1534 (talk) 03:57, 29 July 2022 (CEST)

I'm thinking of removing the featured poll

I see we have ran out of poll ideas and nobody cares about the polls anymore. I'm considering maybe replacing it with "Featured Media", that is, a video, image, or maybe even a news article related to content on this site. Thoughts? --Pmb1226   (talk) 23:29, 15 August 2022 (CEST)

Possibly, but polls do help engagement. Lawiki1534 (talk) 00:17, 16 August 2022 (CEST)

IP banning

What's with the ip bans? They only last for one day before it becomes available again? --Pmb1226   (talk)

That's the MediaWiki autoblock default. If you need to ban for longer, just CheckUser them and ban their ip separately. Angeleno (talk) 13:05, 18 August 2022 (PDT)

hazomo is a gigantic prick

recently this morning one of the screamer wiki discord members (pickadeli) came out saying that was being manipulated by fergi one of the members asked hazomo to ban fergi hazomo kept making fun of this situation and he did not take it seriously he ended up banning me, qx1. pickadeli and one more who i don't remember his name he also purged the main chat to get rid of the evidence unban us and ban this selfish motherfucker

Hazomo's been banned, you (and everyone else) has been unbanned. Angeleno (talk) 03:48, 10 September 2022 (MST)

Quick question

What does the japanese text on this logo say? --Pmb1226   (talk)

Should visual editor be disabled?

It messes up the comments on pages and some new editors might not understand.

Tankman fan 44 (talk) 09:10, 4 November 2022 (MST)

Probably not. Angeleno (talk) 12:01, 4 November 2022 (MST)

Early revisions

How could Template:Bigcat be imported in 2011? Mediawiki glitch? --Pmb1226   (talk)

I think it's because the template was imported from wikipedia, so older edits appear. Angeleno (talk) 00:33, 5 November 2022 (MST)

Favicon request

Because this edited version with the color tint appears in the site logo, I feel it makes sense to have this version instead of the standard one we currently have. What do you think? --Pmb1226 (talk)

I changed it. We'll see how it looks. Angeleno (talk) 18:34, 5 November 2022 (MST)

Share feature

I was reading about ways to increase seo and web traffic and found that adding a share button increases the number of views on a page and overall traffic. There's a mediawiki extension here which allows a page to be easily shared to any social media via the sidebar. It says it's in development but its still worth a try + its very useful.

Also the favicon still remains the same even after it was changed, kinda strange --Pmb1226 (talk)

You can turn the extension off, I added the links somewhere else --Pmb1226 (talk)

External links

This site has many clickable external links to other sites (like wikipedia for example), but when they are clicked they open in the same tab instead of a new one, which lowers average page count and time spent on the site. Should we make it so that when an external link is clicked, it opens in a brand new tab so that will still be open? --Pmb1226 (talk)

Yes Angeleno (talk) 20:19, 14 November 2022 (MST)
This setting might work if configued, but not sure:
If it doesn't seem to work right I might make a mediawiki account and just ask there. --Pmb1226 (talk)
It seems to have worked. Angeleno (talk) 16:44, 15 November 2022 (MST)
Great! Just one thing is that the interwiki links (like wikipedia) still seem to open in the same tab, so maybe editing the interwiki page and adding some of the previous code might get it to work. --Pmb1226 (talk)


Do you have the goatse 404 image without the drawn hands? I can try to edit it better. --Pmb1226 (talk)

Here you go. File:404NoGoatse.png Angeleno (talk) 18:14, 23 November 2022 (MST)


What happened to Screamer Wiki's bitchute channel and why was it banned? --Pmb1226 (talk)

It was banned supposedly for harassment. We tried to appeal, but they never responded. Angeleno (talk) 05:36, 11 December 2022 (MST)
Where there videos on the channel? And who did we interact with that they found "harassing". --Pmb1226 (talk)
Yes, however, most of the videos were crossposted to YouTube, Odysee, or the wiki directly. We didn't interact with anyone there, but I guess BitChute viewers didn't like screamers and shock sites on the main page. It was the Screamreuploads channel. Angeleno (talk) 08:14, 11 December 2022 (MST)


I've noticed that logged out users are not able to vote on the featured poll, thus why results are so low. Can this be fixed? --Pmb1226 (talk)

That was deliberate. There is a bug currently on AJAXPoll (and with comments) where all logged out users, instead of having a unique actor ID, their actor ID gets set to 0 meaning that someone without an account with an IP address of that attempts to vote on a poll that anonymous user voted on, will show to that they already voted, despite never doing so, due to both of their actor IDs being 0.
This was a bug with these extensions since MediaWiki 1.35 if I recall correctly. I attempted to fix it myself or install an older version, but that was not feasible. Angeleno (talk) 21:27, 11 December 2022 (MST)


I found a comment extension which is newer and not buggy/severly vulnerable like the one we currently have: Should it be implemented? --Pmb1226 (talk)

It's been tested in the past. The reasons for removing it at the time was due to the extension using your Full Name (if entered) instead of your username. There is no documentation on how to change it. Angeleno (talk) 21:59, 14 December 2022 (MST)
Fixed it. It's still unfortunate that you have to change a line in the code (CommentStreamsFactory.php) to do it. Angeleno (talk) 22:38, 14 December 2022 (MST)
