Glitch City Laboratories 18.09
« on: September 04, 2018, 01:31:15 am »
It's been a long time coming but GCL 18.09 is finally live. Highlights:

  • MediaWiki updated to 1.31
  • Authentication bridge significantly rewritten. Should mean no more "loss of session data" errors. Finally!
  • Emails are working (tested myself).
  • Username (not display name) changes are now possible, on a case-by-case basis. Your password will be reset and a new password emailed to you. Some users have had their usernames changed by request.
  • Some buggy and/or unmaintained wiki extensions are now removed.
  • A working "Printable view" is now available for all wiki pages. In printable view, the header and sidebar are stripped out, as are the article action links (talk page, edit, etc)

Some maintenance is also being done this week (namely in the area of wiki accounts). Old wiki accounts have been merged together and all wiki accounts with zero edits have been deleted. Don't worry, if you have a forum account a wiki account will be automatically created for you, so this was more to get rid of stale wiki accounts that no longer map to a forum account and also to spam accounts (back when the wiki had open registration for some reason...)

Also there will be some cleanup especially in the announcements boards and general information. Expect some stale threads to be unstickied or thrown in the garbage.

Ooh, this is nice. ^^ I created an offline GlitchDex a while ago, so will put it on my list of projects to make an updated version.

Thank you! :)
Held aloft, as if by hands, their thoughts remain adrift
Torn asunder, broken bands
A void, a dream, a rift

You're welcome! I too notice the site is running much faster. I don't know if that's due to improvements in GCL itself or due to work on the server to make it more efficient in general (in particular, replacing Gitlab with Gitea, since Gitlab is a resource hog and often suffers from memory leaks).

Ooh, this is nice. ^^ I created an offline GlitchDex a while ago, so will put it on my list of projects to make an updated version.
I noticed! Good job on that. This should make it easier to create a new version. I also have a ticket for automatically generating an offline GlitchDex.

Thank you! :)
You're welcome! Sorry it took longer than I wanted.

I see, sounds good.

Thanks, glad you like it. :) That sounds amazing, I hope you luck in implementing it.
