Your Puzzle Is Broken

What is this? I'm trying to upload photos of all of the celestial beings and the website won't let me log in. As a longtime DM who always plays RAW, this has got me RAW. Fix it please.

Please be respectful. You must complete the challenges in order to keep spam levels down. If it takes too long, reload and try again. It is probabilistic. — Blue Dragon (talk) 09:58, 8 December 2014 (MST)

Puzzle Glitch/Request for Exemption

Same problem as below (Puzzle Glitch), but on a laptop. The puzzle completes (strangely, most of the time in well under 20 seconds, with weirdly low number results, sometimes in the thousands), I press save, and it simply redirects me to the edit page. I fairly recently made another page, so I'm not sure why it's not working. If I could get an exemption or another solution, that'd be great. --R2d2go (talk) 23:04, 3 November 2014 (MST)

Weirdly enough, I used the audio Captcha and it worked, so nevermind I guess? --R2d2go (talk) 15:04, 4 November 2014 (MST)

Puzzle Glitch

My iphone cannot create new pages. I complete the puzzles fine, but it just reloads the edit page with no error messages and the puzzles refreshed. Is there a fix? If not, can I please have an exception? Most of my online access is via mobile device, and going home to log on to my computer just to make a page for later is frustrating.

Sorry for the late reply, I didn't see this until now. I have made an exemption for you. Please let me know if you continue to have to perform the proof of work. Thanks, — Blue Dragon (talk) 18:29, 31 October 2014 (MDT)

Request for Puzzle Exemption

Not sure if im asking for this in the right way but ya. I am doing a lot of editing to the fallout wiki (adding missing perks, making a ful campaign, finishing mob stats, etc) and it is taking over 600 seconds for each puzzle, making it pain staking to make even minor edits and such.

Hi Kangeburu, it is appropriate and you are asking in the correct way. I've made an exception for you. Please let me know if you continue to need to search for the puzzle. Thanks, — Blue Dragon (talk) 18:26, 5 October 2014 (MDT)

Request for Puzzle Exemption

Starting to get puzzles going over 1 million, sometimes not solving at all. --Elohim (talk) 18:32, 30 July 2014 (MDT)

Hi Elohim, I've made an exception for your account. Please let me know if you continue to need to solve the puzzle. Thanks, — Blue Dragon (talk) 08:45, 3 August 2014 (MDT)

Request for Puzzle Exemption

I have been trying to create an account but having problems with the puzzles. My computer can solve the puzzle but i keep getting the error for the captcha and am totally confused. My username is Icequellsith and my email is if you can send me the password there

Can you help, many thanks

Hi, I made an exception for your IP addresses ending in 36 and 67. Please let me know if you continue to have to do the captcha. Thanks, — Blue Dragon (talk) 08:02, 6 July 2014 (MDT)

Request for Puzzle Exemption

When I created my account (archon86) the puzzle took 7.4 seconds to solve. However, any time I try to post I get a "keep running this script" error and in 5 attempts it has not solved in ~3 minutes. (6/10/14)

Specifically, I was hoping to post a few items to the 4e Homebrew section, including a crazy detailed disease I used. (6/12/14 update)

Hi Archon86, I've made an exception for you. Please let me know if you continue to go through the process. Thanks, — Blue Dragon (talk) 18:07, 12 June 2014 (MDT)

Request for Puzzle Exemption

My Account name is Rockjockey, and I have an older Linux laptop which cannot finish the puzzle in a timely fashion (under 15 minutes). I politely request an exemption to this bothersome system. Much appreciated.

I've made an exception for you. Please let me know if you continue to have to go through the process. Thanks, — Blue Dragon (talk) 19:41, 28 May 2014 (MDT)

Request for Puzzle Exemption

My computer is often taking more than a minute to solve the puzzle, and breaks the pages and gives my "website is offline" type errors when I do so (at least it seems not to lose my edits when it does so). It'd be great if I didn't need jump through that extra hoop. Thanks! Zau (talk) 23:25, 26 May 2014 (MDT)

I've made an exception for you. Please let me know if you continue to have to go through the process. Thanks, — Blue Dragon (talk) 19:42, 28 May 2014 (MDT)

Request for exemption/help for "Puzzle" in account creation

it takes over ten minutes for the "puzzle" to finish and afterwards it says that the captcha was either wrong or missing. just want some help resolving this.(im thinking that its probably a problem similar to "Request for Exemption for New Account Puzzle" two entries down)

Hi, an exemption has been added for you. Please let me know if you have any more problems. Thanks! — Blue Dragon (talk) 07:18, 18 May 2014 (MDT)

Request for exemption from the computer search and captcha redirect

Blue Dragon, I'm working on a massive page for my campaign Dominaria and I'm just getting into the swing of including a lot of links (some of which link outside D&D wiki). Also I am about to go on leave and will be uploading maps as I'm able to produce them which I'm pretty sure takes you to a redirect. In any case, I'm working a lot on this wiki and I get sent to the redirect enough that it's becoming a bother. What would I need to do to get an exemption?

Also as an aside, I've always wanted to be an admin but really never had the time. What is a section of D&D wiki that I could focus time into and help out?

Thanks! --Ixidor (talk) 21:22, 18 December 2013 (MST)

Hi Ixidor, I've added you to the exemption list. Please let me know if you're still required to perform the proof-of-work. Thanks! — Blue Dragon (talk) 23:05, 19 December 2013 (MST)
Thank you a lot! It now works fine. --Ixidor (talk) 18:08, 27 December 2013 (MST)

Request for Exemption for New Account Puzzle

I am having trouble trying to get an account on this wiki. After I fill in the required fields, I click the "Begin Puzzle Search" button and after a few minute it gives me a number, which I believe to be the solution to the puzzle, but when I click register it says I didn't input it correctly. If an exemption won't fix this, would be so kind as to tell me what I'm doing incorrectly.

I've added a temporary exemption for the IP address that made your edits. Please let me know if you run into any more problems registering. Thanks! — Blue Dragon (talk) 09:06, 28 December 2013 (MST)

It worked! Thank you.

'nother format changing update

I've noticed recently that things like Template:SRD Feat Breadcrumb and other similar articles have changed in that " → " makes some real weird <pre></pre>-like format, rather than just an arrow. I assume this is the product of some wiki update, so is this a thing we can fix without editing all articles with a → error? Thanksa-kindly. --SgtLion (talk) 04:53, 12 January 2014 (MST)

I seem to have fixed it by removing the whitespace. For some reason the transculsion thought there was a newline then whitespace (which makes that indented block). Marasmusine (talk) 05:44, 12 January 2014 (MST)

'Tawny' Unable to use account

Bleh, a second thing in one day. A friend o' mine made an account called 'Tawny' in the past couple days. For some reason, though, whenever she logs into her account, from any IP, she just gets a white screen instead of dandwiki. Other accounts she makes and as an IP she can log in use the site fine. I can't see any kind of block log, or anythin' that would indicate what is going on. Any assistance would be dandy --SgtLion (talk) 10:31, 12 January 2014 (MST)

Hi SgtLion, sorry for not noticing this post sooner. The problem is that the Tawny account was set to use the skin "standard" which is not rendering at the moment. I unset this preference and removed the broken skins---she should be able to log in again. Please let me know if there are any more problems. Thanks, — Blue Dragon (talk) 09:42, 19 January 2014 (MST)

Request for exemption

The new puzzle thing is apparently too complex for my toaster to handle, and it just sit there and goes on forever trying to solve the puzzle before crashing. Could I please get an exemption? --Salasay Δ 16:49, 13 January 2014 (MST)

It also makes me do the puzzle thing on ramdom edits that definitely didn't have external links in them. --Salasay Δ 22:40, 18 January 2014 (MST)
Hi Salasay, I've made an exception for you. Please let me know if you continue to get the challenges. Thanks, — Blue Dragon (talk) 09:27, 19 January 2014 (MST)

Can't create account.

Hi Blue Dragon, I'm having the same problem that someone else on the discussion had, namely that I can't create an account because it keeps saying that the capcha code or whatever was incorrect or missing, even though I wait for the puzzle search to finish. would like to get an exemption, thanks.

I've made an exception for your IP. Please let me know if you have any more problems. Thanks! — Blue Dragon (talk) 18:20, 28 January 2014 (MST)

Email issue

Blue Dragon, I can't get a confirmation email to my email account. D&D wiki is actually displaying a message saying that sending failed and that my email account is invalid. I am 100% certain my email is correct.

Thanks for letting me know about this---I likely would have seen this sooner ... if email was working! I will try to get it figured out tonight. — Blue Dragon (talk) 08:23, 15 May 2014 (MDT)
Hi Danielwpeer, I believe I have fixed it. Can you try again now? Thanks! — Blue Dragon (talk) 18:03, 15 May 2014 (MDT)

Wiki problems

Hi Blue Dragon, all this week I have been regularly getting "Error 524: A timeout occurred" on the wiki. It happens every 10 minutes or so, and locks me out for about 1 minute.

I also couldn't email you through the wiki, I got an error "Unknown error in PHP's mail() function." Marasmusine (talk) 01:26, 9 May 2014 (MDT)

I'll look into this as well tonight and try to figure out what's going on. Chances are I'm not running enough PHP threads. — Blue Dragon (talk) 08:23, 15 May 2014 (MDT)
I've changed some settings. Could you let me know if it continues to happen? — Blue Dragon (talk) 18:06, 15 May 2014 (MDT)

I'm still getting frequent Error 524. This one: Marasmusine (talk) 09:57, 25 May 2014 (MDT)

Hi Marasmusine, I've added a bit more caching everywhere. Please let me know if this helps solve your problems. Thanks! — Blue Dragon (talk) 20:23, 28 May 2014 (MDT)
Hi, sorry to bring up another wiki problem. Although the Error 524 message went away, I started getting a different error message instead. This now happens every time I make an edit: When I press "save page" there is a delay of about 1 minute then I get "Error 503 Service Unavailable / Service Unavailable / Guru Meditation: / XID: 1130186661 / Varnish cache server". Reloading the page sometimes works, sometimes it gives me an edit conflict. Marasmusine (talk) 00:53, 1 July 2014 (MDT)
Thanks for letting me know about this. It should not be timing out anymore. However, it may still take some time to complete the edit---I'll continue looking into that. Please let me know if you continue to get 503 errors (or any other annoying problems). Thanks, — Blue Dragon (talk) 08:26, 4 July 2014 (MDT)

Hover Text

On Wikipedia, there is a template for "Hover Text" (here) which i think would be neat to have on the wiki so that hombrewers can put notes in the text to clarify things without cluttering up the text. It would have to be changed to default to no link, and maybe show up green or teal instead of dotted. do you think you could add that? --Salasay Δ 18:42, 18 May 2014 (MDT)

Hi Salasay, I added that page to the wiki. Let me know if that helps. Thanks, — Blue Dragon (talk) 14:53, 23 May 2014 (MDT)
Thank you, that will be very useful. I have a request. Would it be possible to make the text automatically teal, so as to make it stick out more (with just the dotted, it would look like just a fancy underline.) Thank you again. --Salasay Δ 20:08, 23 May 2014 (MDT)
They should be teal now. Let me know if you want anything else changed! Thanks, — Blue Dragon (talk) 12:07, 24 May 2014 (MDT)
Thank you, that's perfect. --Salasay Δ 08:09, 25 May 2014 (MDT)

Another day, Another weird problem.

Hi, today my edits are not actually appearing in the page. For example, Cadmian (4e Race) does not show these edits. I've tried refreshing the page. It's strange. Marasmusine (talk) 05:50, 6 June 2014 (MDT)

I have told Blue Dragon about this problem, which I assume is the same one on User talk:Green Dragon#Artificer and me mentioned that he is looking into it. It's really annoying me I can say. His update: "... seems like a problem with the cache not accepting "PURGE" requests." --Green Dragon (talk) 13:02, 6 June 2014 (MDT)
I believe I've fixed it now. Please let me know if it continues to happen (after clearing your browser cache). Thanks, — Blue Dragon (talk) 15:33, 6 June 2014 (MDT)

New Account Puzzle Exemption Request

Hoy. I'm pretty well known on English Wikipedia (over 4,000 edits across all Wikimedia Foundation projects) and I'd like to be exempt from the CAPTCHA if at all possible and added to the Autoconfirmed usergroup. I think I qualify as one of those people who won't cause trouble. Zell Faze (talk) 16:41, 21 July 2014 (MDT)

Hi Zellfaze, you have been added to the exception list. Please let me know if you continue to have to perform the proof of work puzzle. Thanks, — Blue Dragon (talk) 17:46, 21 July 2014 (MDT)

Puzzle Exemption Request

I hadn't edited since this feature was added, but have been editing since 06 (i think, 07 at the latest if not). Would like an exemption.   Hooper   talk    contribs    email   17:27, 25 August 2014 (MDT)

Hi Hooper, I've made an exception for you. Please let me know if you run into any problems. Thanks! — Blue Dragon (talk) 16:59, 27 August 2014 (MDT)

Request for Puzzle Exemption

Hello, Blue Dragon! I used to go by Joba Tett, but made a new account on here to continue work on the Fallout d20 campaign setting. I'm sorry you've been getting tons of spam, but it'd help me out of you exempted me from the puzzle. For now, I will just edit previous work of mine (balancing and stuff) until I am exempted :) Thanks!

Hi GamerAim, I've made an exemption for you. Please let me know if you continue to have to do the puzzle. Thanks! — Blue Dragon (talk) 19:47, 2 October 2014 (MDT)

Request for Puzzle Exemption

Hello Blue Dragon. I don't mean to impose, but I've been making a lot of subtle adjustments to and balancing out a class I made and although my computer is handling the puzzles fine, it still takes an average of a minute to get through even the most minor edit which is starting to become a tad irritating. As such I was wondering if I might be able to have an exemption from the puzzle. Thank you for your time, Ruethgar.

Hi Ruethgar, thank you for the contact. Your request is completely appropriate. I have added you to the exemption list---please let me know if you continue to have to perform the puzzle. Thanks! — Blue Dragon (talk) 18:16, 6 October 2014 (MDT)

Request for Puzzle Exemption

This is chickenbutt935, please exempt my puzzle, I need to get to my next class. thanks —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Chickenbutt935 (talkcontribs) . Please sign your posts.

Hi Chickenbutt935, you should have an exemption. I believe I made it some time ago but never responded. Thanks, — Blue Dragon (talk) 10:23, 20 May 2016 (MDT)

Would you have any ability to enact these ideas?

Hi, dear Bluey, Blu-blu, Dragon o' the Sea. I really need an informal name to call you by.
There's been a whole bunch of conversation at User talk:Green Dragon#Homebrew Reputation about doing mass messin' about with the articles that be. There are two ideas in particular I was wondering if you'd have any idea as to how to achieve them:
One was lil' template notice things showing up on homebrew articles. (Presumably it'd apply to all articles with Category:User, or some similar means of discerning homebrew stuff).
Secondly was the idea of moving all Articles with, e.g. (Xe Trait) to (Xe Homebrew Trait). Obviously this is like 20,000 articles so it's kind of a big scary idea that would have to be automated.
I think maybe I could auto-do these with a lot of silly code and like 10 months of running it non-stop, but if you have any ideas as to whether these would be achievable through practical means, I would most appreciate your input. Thanks kindly. --SgtLion (talk) 14:59, 5 November 2014 (MST)
Oh, and as a side note. If you could implement a PFSRD namespace, or point me in the right direction to do it, I'd be most thankful~ --SgtLion (talk) 15:49, 7 November 2014 (MST)
This should be fixed! Let me know if you run into any issues. — Blue Dragon (talk) 17:29, 13 November 2014 (MST)
Yeah, okay. Since we seem unable to properly implement, like, uh, any, of the ideas at Talk:Meta Pages#Homebrew Noticeability/User_Talk:Green_Dragon#Homebrew Reputation, I beseech assistance in any ideas from you that any of the proposed solutions could be implemented. Thanks kindly. --SgtLion (talk) 06:57, 12 November 2014 (MST)
Hi SgtLion, sorry for the late reply, I've been pretty busy. The sidebar/banner change would be very easy, it would only take a few minutes. Placing a homebrew banner on every page would also not take very long, especially because I could bypass much of MediaWiki and make the changes directly (while preserving history / etc) in the database. Does this help? Thanks, — Blue Dragon (talk) 17:07, 13 November 2014 (MST)
Hey no worries with that time shiz y'nah. I have no idea what the backend of the wiki looks like, so I ain't know what you can do in comparison to my measly abilities, or GD's. That's all super helpful and y'done a nice job on the sidebar note thingy, thank you <3 And thanks yet again for the namespace <3<3 --SgtLion (talk) 08:34, 14 November 2014 (MST)

Request for Puzzle Exemption

Greetings and salutations, Blue Dragon. I respectfully request clearance to resume adding pages to this wiki. Specifically, in the near future, I intend to expand discussion on Break (3.5e Spell), and to create two new melee combat feats for spear-wielders.--Sir Dinadan (talk) 12:25, 24 November 2014 (MST)

Hello Sir Dinadan, thank you for information. You should now have an exemption from performing the proof of work. Please let me know if you continue to run into it! Thanks, — Blue Dragon (talk) 08:26, 25 November 2014 (MST)

Can't get past captchas to create account

Just created "Lapine" 5e race but cannot get past captchas to create an account. Always tells me they are wrong.

Hello, I've made an exception for your IP address for the puzzle. Please let me know if you continue to have problems with the captcha. Thanks, — Blue Dragon (talk) 06:26, 2 February 2015 (MST)

svg thumnails

Hi Blue Dragon, I recently uploaded an svg file

It seems that the wiki can't generate a thumbnail for it (File:Dungeonpassagechamber.svg), but what's curious is that it did render a preview for it on the upload page. I wonder if you could look into installing the convert command for this file type, thanks. Marasmusine (talk) 16:24, 22 February 2015 (MST)

Hi Marasmusine, thanks for calling this to my attention. convert should now be installed---please let me know if it continues to be a problem. Thanks! — Blue Dragon (talk) 13:41, 24 February 2015 (MST)
That worked a treat. Marasmusine (talk) 14:56, 24 February 2015 (MST)

Special lists being outdated

My dearest Deep Blue, I've been doin' a lot of SpecialPages use lately, and often use 'What links here' when maintaining pages. I've noticed these have a good tendency to be outdated real fast. For instance, Special:BrokenRedirects is a list of lies and slander against my PFSRD knowledge redirects, which is somehow fixed by remaking the redirects. Some entries on Special:WantedPages are total lies, though that's likely related to 'What links here', I'm guessing.

but they're both linked to on the same list on 3.5e Base Classes, and this issue is usually solvable by remaking the articles (though not just by editing them), so I assume it's a 'gets outdated' sort of thing. Is this just a limit to our MediaWiki technology, is it a fault, is there some sort of RESCAN ability? It's not a major issue, but it feels incredibly widespread, and is an impedence sometimes, especially when I'm trying to get a proper grip on if some edits are working. Thanks kindly. --SgtLion (talk) 16:34, 14 May 2015 (MDT)

Hi SgtLion, thanks for letting me know about this issue. Moreover, thanks for letting me know in such a fun manner :) I went ahead and rebuilt all of the links. They should remain correct for at least a good deal of time---please let me know when they get out of control again. Thanks! — Blue Dragon (talk) 14:58, 19 May 2015 (MDT)

Exemption Request / broken Puzzle

I am interested in helping the creation of homebrew content for D&D 5e and am trying to make an account but every time i do the puzzle it takes either 1-7 seconds or 200-300 seconds and even after waiting that it says it is incorrect so i would like to ask for an exemption.

With Regards to Sir Blue Dragon Hercules1031 also it seems it for some reason made this request Triplicate

Hello Hercules1031, I have made an exemption for your account. Please let me know if you run into any more problems. Also, no problem about the triplicate posting! — Blue Dragon (talk) 19:00, 10 June 2015 (MDT)

Well 5h!7 i'm on vacation for a week welp gotta wait 1 week to set up the account

I'm not sure what you're saying---are you asking for an exemption? — Blue Dragon (talk) 12:09, 28 June 2015 (MDT)

It keeps giving me puzzles whenever I click 'save page', even after I just solved one.

I am stuck in an endless loop of these puzzles, and my page edit wont save.

Sorry, this is due to the HTTPS issues described below. Your issue should be resolved now—please let me know if it is not. Thanks, — Blue Dragon (talk) 19:01, 10 June 2015 (MDT)

I am having trouble saving the edits of a couple pages.

On one, I hit save and it gives me the puzzle. It solves, I hit save again. New puzzle. Over and over and over, without the edit saving.

On another, I just get 'SSL connection error' everytime.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. It turns out there was a problem with SSL access to D&D wiki. I have worked to fix it now—the puzzles should be working again. Please let me know if you are still unable to pass any of the puzzles. The issue was that ReCaptcha was still being loaded over HTTP (instead of HTTPS), but your browser will have blocked the request because it was an HTTP request for content into an HTTPS website. You haven't been failing the puzzle; you've been failing the ReCaptcha component. Thanks, — Blue Dragon (talk) 18:56, 10 June 2015 (MDT)

Deleted pages

Hi, is there any chanсe to get copies of deleted pages? I liked leechmastery classes ( leech warden, leech mage) very much, but didn't save them before they were deleted.

Sorry to jump in. I've temporarily restored those classes. They are at User:Chromeraven/Leech Mage (3.5e Class) and User:Chromeraven/Leech Warden (3.5e Class). The associated rules are still at Leechmastery (3.5e magic), but bear in mind they are fairly broken. Marasmusine (talk) 12:04, 20 June 2015 (MDT)
Thanks, that's just great!
Thanks for taking care of that Marasmusine! — Blue Dragon (talk) 16:52, 20 June 2015 (MDT)

Something weird

Hi BD, this is a weird one. I am logged in, but when I go to File:Neothelid.jpg, it appears that I'm logged out (it says "create account, log in" in the top right, and my admin tools disappear) If I try to log in, it says I'm already logged in. If I navigate anywhere else, I'm logged in. Anyways, I want to delete the file under the copyright rationale (it's from Pathfinder). Marasmusine (talk) 15:48, 14 July 2015 (MDT)

Hi Marasmusine, I haven't been able to dig down into what is going on completely here. It seems like it might be a TLS vs. no-TLS issue. Does this occur if you use https:// exclusively? Thanks, — Blue Dragon (talk) 13:39, 16 August 2015 (MDT)

I suspect a risen old enemy

My Bluebird, I've noticed ye olde page Humans, Æskmann (DnD Race) has got a frightening delete history, and I have managed no better. You seem to be on break, but if you or GD are chillin' about, I'm guessing this needs manual intervention to remove from the Special:DoubleRedirects page. --SgtLion (talk) 15:21, 10 August 2015 (MDT)

Hi SgtLion, I manually deleted that article from the database and I believe that may have helped. I kicked off a "refresh links" maintenance action after that, and it seems like the problem is now fixed. Is this the case? Thanks! — Blue Dragon (talk) 13:37, 16 August 2015 (MDT)
Looks good. Thank you as always <3 --SgtLion (talk) 14:59, 17 August 2015 (MDT)

While you're at it can you figure out why Form:Tamerianian persists at Deletion Candidates? :) (It was deleted years ago) Marasmusine (talk) 15:26, 10 August 2015 (MDT)

Hi Marasmusine, I did the same for this page. I'm not sure why it wasn't properly deleting, but I removed it now. — Blue Dragon (talk) 13:52, 16 August 2015 (MDT)

Puzzle Exemption Request

I'm not entirely sure if this is what I'm supposed to do for puzzle exemption but recently I've started creating a full new campaign setting, an alternate of the halo setting with elements of the Red vs Blue web series included, and I'm creating all the pages and links within it, however its starting to get quite annoying to wait every time I try and post a new page, often I get rather long puzzle waits. I'd appreciate it if I could get an exemption so that I can continue creating this page in a hopefully faster manner. I'd also like to put that the page I've been working on is rather new still and isn't completely finished however I fully intend to finish entirely the setting --Taz447 (talk) 02:03, 23 September 2015 (MDT)

Hi Taz447, I have made an exemption for you. Please let me know if you continue to have any problems. Thanks, — Blue Dragon (talk) 08:32, 26 September 2015 (MDT)

Thank you, I have a question about use of the disclaimer, am I required to do it for all pages involving a topic, such as Halo, or am I able to only place the disclaimer on a campaign setting main page, most of the source information is based off of their wiki which I credited already. The page is linked on my profile page --Taz447 (talk) 19:14, 30 September 2015 (MDT)

Hi Taz447, sorry I missed this. I am actually not sure. Another admin could likely answer this. Certainly putting it on all pages is "safer". — Blue Dragon (talk) 10:26, 20 May 2016 (MDT)

image license options

Hi BD, can we add some license options to the drop-down License menu at Special:Upload? (At the moment it just says "none"). Options could be: "Public Domain", "Creative Commons", "Copyright". If possible, can we enforce that one be selected before the image uploads? Marasmusine (talk) 03:16, 26 September 2015 (MDT)

Hi Marasmusine, I looked into this a little bit. The good news is it is all configurable from within the wiki itself. I put a few of the entries from Wikipedia into MediaWiki:Licenses, but I didn't back it up to the underlying template pages or anything. Would you be able to finish this? Thanks! — Blue Dragon (talk) 08:37, 26 September 2015 (MDT)

Puzzle Exemption Request

I don't know if this is how I'm supposed to do it but the puzzle takes more than five minutes to load and when it does It says I'm incorrect. I'm trying to create an account so that I can help create homebrew content that would make some games more fun.

Hi, thank you for letting me know. I have made an exemption for your IP address. Please let me know if you change IP addresses when creating the account or have any other problems. Thanks, — Blue Dragon (talk) 08:31, 26 September 2015 (MDT)


Can somebody explain to me how this puzzle works?
Sometimes I get 2 words in the upper box or a number, this goes in box below? and press "Begin puzzel search" A number in the box appears and Time to solve: 3.826 sec, but nothing happens. Am I missing something... Have I to do something within this time?

I succeed ones after almost a half hour, I don't know how I did it...
Much appreciated Onra77 14:51, 7 November 2015 (MST)

I finally figured it out, it confusing because there are 2 boxes..

Hi Onra77, thanks for the feedback. I've added some text to try to indicate that there are two boxes to enter answers into. Hopefully this will help---please let me know if you have any ideas on how to make it more clear. — Blue Dragon (talk) 17:42, 15 November 2015 (MST)

Request For Puzzle Exemption

Greetings, Blue Dragon. I am getting ready to make pages for each of the Swordmage, Variant 2 (3.5e Class)'s Incantations as if they were spells (even though they're not), and since I'm going to be creating a lot of pages in rapid succession, I was hoping to get an exemption from the puzzle test in order to speed up the process.--Sage of Souls (talk) 11:14, 6 March 2016 (MST)

Edit: With each page I make, the computer search time for the puzzle takes longer and longer.--Sage of Souls (talk) 13:09, 6 March 2016 (MST)

Edit 2: Also, my laptop apparently can't complete the puzzle at all.--Sage of Souls (talk) 15:22, 6 March 2016 (MST)

Hello Sage of Souls, I added you to the exemption list. Please let me know if you continue to have to do the computer puzzle. Note: You will still have to pass the CAPTCHA system. Thanks, — Blue Dragon (talk) 17:48, 6 March 2016 (MST)
Thank you; I can do that. It says I'm exempt.--Sage of Souls (talk) 17:52, 6 March 2016 (MST)

Request For my dear bot's Puzzle Exemption

Yo yo, dear Bluey. My newly born SgtLionBot is being crushed under the weight of a thousand puzzles, or rather just the occasional one. I don't know what the usual requirements are for automatically being exempt from those, but couldya help my dear creation? I mean, I've not fully tested, but that being said, the Captcha might introduce problems too. How do I save my new extension of the soul from these defenses? --SgtLion (talk) 06:56, 5 April 2016 (MDT)

Hi SgtLion---thanks for the fun request! Hopefully SgtLionBot should no longer be burdened in such a way. Please let me know if you continue to run into any problems. Thanks, — Blue Dragon (talk) 18:06, 7 April 2016 (MDT)
