Special:MaintenanceEdit

The "Disambiguation" feature is supposed to read out a list of disambiguating pages based on Memory Alpha:Links to disambiguating pages -- which an archivist has moved and nominated for deletion. I moved the article back, since deleting that redirect would cause the software at the Special:Maintenance feature to register a dead link -- and I don't know how to change the link that is coded into the wiki on a special page, so i think keeping the article where it belongs is a good idea.

However, the Special:Maintenance, when queried about disambiguations, only reads out hundreds of links to Memory Alpha:Votes for deletion.

Also, Memory Alpha was completely unresponsive when i tried to protect that page from moves -- Captain Mike K. Barteltalk 14:28, 19 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Special:RecentchangesEdit

Hidden vandalism? (from User talk:Captainmike) Edit

Hey, Mike. I was looking at the recent changes page, and noticed that a few pages were reverted due to vandalism -- yet the vandalism itself didn't appear on the recent changes. How is this possible? --From Andoria with Love 02:59, 7 Dec 2005 (UTC)

Not sure -- i noticed this as well. Is the person doing it through a hidden username, like a bot? -- Captain Mike K. Barteltalk
Just checked -- i clicked "show bots" and sure enough, all of the IP 82... vandal edits were masked because Special:Recentchanges thinks that that user is a Bot.
I think a bureaucrat needs to fix something about the Bot allowances, i don't know how any of that works though. -- Captain Mike K. Barteltalk
I didn't look at very many of the pages, but he/she/it replaces the page with "WIKIPEDIA IS COM*UNISM." I'm not sure if this helps, but I found this, explaining the escapades on Wikipedia. -Platypus Man | Talk 04:08, 7 Dec 2005 (UTC)
to me it rather looks like a bug in the wiki engine: if you unhide bots and hide logged in users you will see that between 0:00 cet and 01:00 cet all ip-users were masked as bots -- Kobi - (Talk) 08:28, 7 Dec 2005 (UTC)
If a user IP is blocked on the English MA, does that count for all the other MA's as well? --Eelco 11:54, 7 Dec 2005 (UTC)
