Admin Announcements from 2013[edit]

Happy Fall/Autumn everyone. Hope your October is going well!
  • Registration has been turned back on. Everyone is free to make their own accounts now. Hopefully our friends the spam bots will stay away.
    • Well that was a failed attempt. Registration has been locked back down and info on how to get an account has been added back to the site. Sigh...
  • I'm sure most people noticed the 12 hour downtime earlier today. The reasoning is simple: the server hadn't been paid for. I'm broke - what can I say? We've worked something out, but going forward I put an ugly donation button up there. Over 5,000 people visit this site on a daily basis, and even if one person were to donate $5 a day, that would pay for the server in no time, or even allow us to get a more powerful machine. More detailed reasoning can be seen on the Support Wikimon page.
  • The new skin is still under way. dkpat has been testing out ideas :) Hopefully we'll have a brand new look for Christmas this year.

Until next time, --Koroku (talk) 12:00, 29 October 2013 (CDT)

Good morning! Just some quick updates:
  • The change in registration has been going well; our spam has vanished. I apologize to those that have to wait to get a new account, but it's a necessary measure. Perhaps during this summer I can look into more anti-spam measures and open up registration, but for now, this will have to work. If you're interested in registering for an account, the procedure is on Wikimon:Register
  • We've upgraded MediaWiki to the most recent version. This happened just last night, and there is a spot on the Community Portal to note if there are any problems. And, of course, like normal, you're welcome to e-mail me with issues.
  • I have a friend that is working on designing a new skin for Wikimon. I am fully aware of how bad load times can be with the background. It's been on my to-do list for ages...
  • If you didn't hear, Digimonx joined the administration team. It now consists of Grandy02, Devkyu, Digimonx and myself. Feel free to contact any of us with questions.
  • A quick reminder that card images from WtW's Card Terminal are not allowed to be used here. It's a shame, but that's what they want. If you're unsure if the image you have came from Card Terminal, please contact Devkyu for confirmation.
  • Just a note... check out the Support Wikimon page. The server costs me $75 a month, and truth be told, Wikimon is one of the one things that uses it. We get upwards of 5,000 unique visitors a day, and so any assistance would be thanked.

That should be about it... we're entering the summer months (in the northern hemisphere at least!) and so I hope everyone enjoys the hopefully nice weather. :)
