Lua error: Cannot allocate memory

A lot of pages display the error "Lua error: Cannot create process: proc_open(): fork failed - Cannot allocate memory" at the moment. I noticed it mostly for maps and divination cards, see Canyon Map or The Aesthete. Using a null edit or the purge function helps in some cases, but not reliably and not even permanently (refreshing it again might cause errors again). --aRTyficial (talk) 15:58, 1 January 2017 (UTC)

Can't commit post to Damage Conversion page

Resolved

Hello,

I'm trying to make a note on the damage conversion page about the priority of gear and passives but I get an error. I'm able to make the actual change, but trying to put the reference in gives me the error:

"This action has been automatically identified as harmful, and therefore disallowed. If you believe your action was constructive, please inform an administrator of what you were trying to do. A brief description of the abuse rule which your action matched is: Global AF - disallow certain words".

 

My reference is accepted fine as:

<ref name="ConversionPriority">{{cite web|author=Mark_GGG|date=October 17, 2013|title=GGG, whats the order of precedence for damage conversion with AoF?|url=www.pathofexile.com/forum/view-thread/542347/page/1#p4883216|publisher=Path of Exile Forums|accessdate=January 20, 2017}}</ref>

 

But adding https:// before www.pathofexile.com causes it to throw the error. Unfortunately without this it isn't clickable on the wiki page. Am I doing something wrong?

You started off editing the wiki by submitting six revisions to the Damage conversion article within 10 minutes. The software used on this wiki has identified you as a possible spammer and will not allow you to submit links to external websites. To indicate to the software that you're not a spammer, continue to make normal edits to the wiki that do not include external links. Please avoid making multiple edits to the same article in rapid succession as well. —Vini (t|c) 17:48, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
It happened the first time I tried to send the changes. I didn't realize that linking to pathofexile.com wasn't allowed by new people (for some reason), so I was trying to narrow down what was causing the issue. I wasn't maliciously spamming the recent page. You tell me to contribute without external links, but am I not suppose to reference my work if I need to? And I'm not a complete imbecile; I know to not normally spam edits. --TheRealCalvariae (talk) 18:18, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
I'm just trying to help you out mate. I'm not chastising you or insinuating that you're an imbecile. I'd be glad to put in the reference for you. —Vini (t|c) 18:43, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
I overreacted a bit and I'm sorry about that. That would be great if you could fix my reference on the damage conversion page. --TheRealCalvariae (talk) 19:52, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

Reference = pathofexile'DOT'com/forum/view-thread/1806991

When I try to add a reference link I get: "Global AF - disallow certain words" Blocked
Why?
--Atless (talk) 17:10, 27 January 2017 (UTC)

We're looking into it. Evidently this is caused by a certain spam filter. In the meantime, you could start off by making some content edits that don't include external links. —Vini (t|c) 18:41, 29 January 2017 (UTC)

Arrowneous (talkcontribslogs)

This user has created numerous redundant pages and duplicate files, leaves redirects needlessly, knowingly misuses Template:Il, persistently adds unnecessary suffixes onto names and inventory icons, either ignores or disregards edit summaries, seemingly works against efforts to correct their mistakes, and has been a careless editor in general. Cleaning up after them has become an overwhelming task that borderlines on edit warring. I'm running out of patience and I don't what to do. --Connor (Talk | contribs) 00:18, 30 April 2017 (UTC)

I will ask him to take greater care in editing. If it persists, please let me know so I can look into it further. —Vini (t|c) 04:52, 30 April 2017 (UTC)

Widespread caching/SMW-attribute issues

No Action
The following issue is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

I've read the "Known issues" so I know it's not entirely new, but I wanted to point out that currently there seem to be far more pages and queries broken than usual. I've created a query at User:ARTyficial/SMW_issues that should catch most cases and it lists around 300 pages. Most of them are missing almost all of their SMW attributes and all pages that I've seen so far can be fixed with null edits or the purge function. I don't think that tackling that amount manually is a good idea though, in particular because I suspect there might be an underlying issue with a recent software/hardware/settings change that caused so many pages to not save properly. --aRTyficial (talk) 20:29, 30 August 2017 (UTC)

I'm responsible for the mess. The pages can be automatically purged for example with PyWikiBot: python pwb.py touch -cat:'Pages with script errors'.
I'll feed the bot with the list, plus MW repairs itself mostly over 24h. As a sidenote, the monolithic structure of Module:Item2 and the laid-back usage of side-wide queries puts heavy stress on the system that could easily avoided at many places. Molldust (talk) 20:46, 30 August 2017 (UTC)
Concerning the sidenote, because I think I don't understand it entirely: What are examples where you'd prefer another method to reduce server stress? Also − if it could be easily avoided − what is the catch that makes it not so easy? --aRTyficial (talk) 21:02, 30 August 2017 (UTC)
I am closing this issue. Further discussions can be carried out on the community portal talk page. —Vini (t|c) 21:25, 30 August 2017 (UTC)

Gigantic official wiki icon

Resolved
The following issue is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

Currently the little golden "official wiki" logo seems to get displayed in its original size for many people, like so. At least there is a flood of new reddit threads popping up where people show or complain about this. I'm personally not affected, but I've seen 9 threads in about an hour now and since people start giving out advice such as permanently blocking elements etc. (which doesn't seem like a reasonable solution), I thought I'd rather report this in case you were not aware of it yet. --aRTyficial (talk) 23:35, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

It looks the like the stylesheets for the Gamepedia bar are failing to load. This issue has been reported to Gamepedia. —Vini (t|c) 01:07, 9 September 2017 (UTC)

Can't preview or submit PoE daily deals

Edit works ok but Preview or Submit generates: 500 Internal Server Error nginx/1.10.3 (Ubuntu)

Thought it might be the new Firefox Quantum 57 (I just updated). Logged out of Firefox, logged in with latest Vivaldi browser (Chrome engine) and same error. Will try to update the PoE Daily Deals wiki later.

Is the error still occurring? I was unable to replicate it; might have had something to do with the wiki moving to AWS.--OmegaK2 (t|c) 02:08, 18 November 2017 (UTC)

I've noticed LUA errors all over the wiki recently. Just came back with the start of the new Abyss league. These are too numerous to list them all but I'll give a few examples. https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Path_of_Exile_Wiki states Module Error: Item link: No results found for search parameter "divine vessel". under the pantheon section and Latest Version displays {{#ask: [[Has release date::<<20171212111710]] |?Has release date |headers=hide |sort=Has release date, Is version |order=desc, desc |limit=1 |searchlabel= |format=template |template=SMW current version }}. Some other pages with errors are https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Hatred and https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Limbsplit. There are many more but the most common seem to refer to Item Link and #Ask.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Agentx2006 (talkcontribs)

Curse removed SMW from the wiki because it was causing performance issues, with SMW removed all pages that use it will now throw errors. --OmegaK2 (t|c) 10:02, 12 December 2017 (UTC)
Is there a workaround to fix all these broken pages then? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Agentx2006 (talkcontribs)

Spanish Translation

Resolved
The following issue is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

Hi Admins, the spanish speaker's community wants to start the translation to spanish. The new players need to understand the game and most of them don't have a fluid english to understand the english wiki (It's awesome your work). The veteran players usually use the english version just because the spanish version of the game is really new, and they prefer to play in english (for trading purposes). The main idea is start with the translation to clarify doubts and makes a well-done data source. So... how we start to work? We need permisions? or? just start... Marclein (talk) 02:35, 20 December 2017 (UTC)

Please refer to the translation guidelines. —Vini (t|c) 04:14, 20 December 2017 (UTC)
