Had a little time for that today. I put the workaround, it works. I also spent some time organizing some of the other templates (we have a lot of unnecessary and over complicated ones). IMO some Templates can make many  things easier, but sometimes they can intimate editors (even though no one need any technical skill to edit pages beyond what necessary to edit posts here on the forum) so its best to keep them organized and documented.

Same here, the bottom two are misbehaving. I hopped your setting would fixed that, but its not a big issue, more me being anal, as the magic word is only used on a few background\unseen templates from Wikipedia, and I can always easily substitute it with a parse function (already tested)

If the utilization remains low, I'll turn the wiki back on, and see what happens then.

The forum does have everything you need to know about aurora in it, just searching can be a pain.

I miss the wiki terribly. I'm getting re-acquainted with the game and those articles are really useful. Do you expect it to be unavailable for long?

I want to see how the utilization goes for a couple more days.

The wiki is updated to the latest version, so if there is a security flaw, it is affecting all media wiki installations.

I didn't even realize we had a knowledge base. Too bad it barely has any articles. I might work on some in my spare time.

There is the new Knowledge Base built into the forums that some people are working on. I think it will eventually replace the wiki so it might not come back at all (don't quote me on that). Also, I use it quite a bit as well, just so I can have some of the math/mechanics easily ready.

I'm sure it's not linked to any one person. :) But my eyes are on you two now ;)

I think it is more linked to something trying to run things as a spambot or the like, but it can't and continues to send the query.

I check the wiki a few times a week or even day, half the accesses are probably me but I can't see how that's excessive.
I've always planned on contributing/ improving it but never really got around to it.
In comparison I use the forum far more excessively, refreshing the updated topics a few times a day and I'm trying to read all the old fiction and rules posts.
The wiki isn't using 134% of the servers data is it? :p

I've temporarily disabled the wiki as the host is complaining of excessive usage traced back to the wiki.  However, I don't see any edits or anything since 2014.  So I have no idea what they are talking about.

I hope that wasn't me? I've been reading it compulsively the last few weeks. . .  How much of the traffic is from South Korea?

Added a captcha question/answer to registering on the wiki.

Here are the questions/answers (not like they were self-evident).
question "What planet are you on?", answer "Earth"
question "What is the answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything?", answer "42"
question "What is the name of the planet Mars?", answer "Mars"
question "What color is blue?", answer "Blue"

Answers are without quotes.
