New issues are entered here, with the most recent at the bottom of the page. If your question does not pertain to editing StrategyWiki (e.g. asking for hints or game-specific information), please ask on the guide's talk page or on the forums.

Please review the Table of Contents to see if your issue has already been raised; also check the archives (to the right) in case it was discussed some time ago.

To facilitate ease of browsing and replying, please:

  1. Place your question at the bottom of the list.

Address verification email was never received[edit]

I signed up the other day, but I never received the email to verify my address. Is that working properly? I've tried resending it twice now, but no luck.

  • I've double-checked my email address; it's correct.
  • No, it's not in my spam folder.
  • My email is Gmail-hosted, so I'm sure it's not getting wrongly rejected.

What gives? Can an admin check it out? --JimTheta (talk) 22:28, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

Please check now. -- Prod (talk) 14:27, 12 November 2014 (UTC)
I got mails from all 3 of my attempts now. Looks like you solved it for me. Hopefully the problem is solved site-wide. Thanks. --JimTheta (talk) 15:45, 12 November 2014 (UTC)
Yea, the mail sending process had stopped. I started it back up and it processed everything that was pending. Thanks for the heads up! -- Prod (talk) 15:47, 12 November 2014 (UTC)
Prod, ever considered setting up a Cron to manually reboot services that get stuck like this? Some time in the early morning is probably safest. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 22:40, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
Cron is the one having problems :). Got something in the works that should handle all of this. -- Prod (talk) 00:54, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

Image requests[edit]

We need additional Sega Saturn {{SS}} control buttons for L, R, and Start. We also need a non-hold version of the cade button for Down, then Up: Arcade-Stick-CDU.png. If anyone can help with those I would really appreciate it. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 18:13, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

Diff change text padding cutting off bottom 10% of each line[edit]

Has anyone noticed this CSS glitch in Dolphin? When you go to a diff with a block of text, it will be hard to see the bottom of commas, g's, q's, or anything under the bottom line. I've narrowed it down to "td.diff-addedline .diffchange, td.diff-deletedline .diffchange". I am going to make the change to fix it. I tested and it is an issue in IE11, Firefox 33.1.1, and Chrome 39.0.2171.65 m. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 17:27, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

Fixed. Yay! This is something that has been bugging my eyes when patrolling diffs since I switched to Dolphin. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 18:05, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

Possible virus on site[edit]

When I logged onto the site earlier, a Norton Antivirus message appeared in the bottom-right corner of my screen, saying it was analyzing a file called "vip_117(1).swf" before saying it was not safe and has been removed, though I do not know how it is physically possible to enter malicious coding into a Macromedia Flash Player file (and do not want to); am I the only one to have experienced this today, or has anybody else who are with Norton Antivirus experienced it as well? If not, I fear for what would have happened to those without any antivirus protection...! Namcorules (talk) 17:30, 30 November 2014 (UTC)

That could mean one of our ad providers is hosting a malicious ad. If you see this come up again, can you take a screenshot of the ad? -- Prod (talk) 03:20, 3 December 2014 (UTC)
