Does anyone know how to remove this? It serves no purpose, it should just redirect you instead of having you click it yourself.
https://dwarffortresswiki.org/index.php/DF2014:Animal_person does redirect as expected.
You linked to https://dwarffortresswiki.org/index.php?title=DF2014:Animal_people&redirect=no - the "redirect=no" parameter in the URL prevents redirects from redirecting, which allows you to view/edit them, but isn't the default. (Maybe you followed the "redirected from" link on the "Animal person" page, or a link provided by someone else?)

When you click this in the search box it brings me to that page with that url.  I actually wind up at this page pretty regularly, I never think to search it singularly.



Hmm, yeah, this is a problem I caused when I moved the pages* over some week ago. It clearly didn't work out as intended. Redirects are tricky, sadly I can't really tell how to solve this either, but I am sorry for causing the problem to begin with.

*DF2014:Animal_people => DF2014:Animal_person

Oh, thanks for the clarification - so it's actually the "Animal people" page that was the issue, not "DF2014:Animal people".
The main cause of this issue is that the move created a double redirect (Animal people -> DF2014:Animal people -> DF2014:Animal person). This is correct per the wiki's current redirect standards, but Mediawiki (our wiki software) has some bugs when it comes to dealing with double redirects. This is probably the most common problem you'll see with double redirects - i.e. when A redirects to B, and B gets updated to redirect to C, A is still cached and won't redirect to C properly. I "fixed" this by editing the page a couple times, and searching seems to work for me now. I did identify a way to clear specific entries from the redirect cache, but it's a bit of a pain to do automatically. I could probably add a "fix this redirect" button on the "A" page pretty easily, though (I've just been too busy to get around to implementing it).

I just updated the wiki page on Emigration and added some known bugs. Is there anything else I should add?

Maybe add a note that returning dwarves requires testing. That way someone will get round to checking if it's really a thing.

lethosor there appears to be a problem with account creation on the wiki. I get this every time I try to submit. There also might be something wrong with the confirmation captcha, I fixed one very minor thing today and I had to click through 12 capcha screens before it stopped just giving me a new one.

I'm not sure what exactly is going wrong - from the logs, it looks like several people have been able to create accounts this month. Make sure you're only filling in the necessary fields - there might be a dummy checkbox or text field that only shows up if you have JavaScript disabled that causes the form to be rejected, so make sure you aren't filling that out if it shows up. Also, make sure you're not using the back/forward buttons in your browser - try opening the "obtain a token" link in a new tab if you haven't, then paste the token in the old tab.

If none of that helps, PM me and I'll create an account for you (and I should be able to exempt you from the captcha requirements too, while I'm at it).

The "12 captcha screens" issue is probably a Google thing - not much we can do there, sorry.

Tried again today and it worked fine on my first try, same with the captcha, thanks. Also thanks for fixing the Animal People redirect.

Thanks. Severedicks what do you think? That was your suggestion so I don't know exactly what you think it needs. (is there a way to tag a user on the forums?)

This seems like a good place to post this suggestion:

Similar to the "new to DF" rectangle with a few relevant links on the wiki start page, it would be great to have a "new to DF wiki editing" section with links to wiki markdown, style guides do's and don't's and in my opinion most importantly an overview of all the templates and categories that are being used and a page on how to use them. The information is mostly scattered somewhere in the wiki, but a central place for reference that can be easily found from the front page would be great.


I wanted to realize this for years now, but I never found the time to do it.

Lots to do as of the new release. Altars and guildhalls and bastards and monasteries and nobles and mounting monstrosities, dragons and more.
But first, a quick question: how come 0.47.01 (and 0.44.11) are not identified versions by the {{version|0.xy.wz}} template?

I'd personally like to see the adventure mode page updated. As well as some info on escaped necromancer experiments. And finally some info on the new generated structures.

I added a passage to the article for Mounts to mention the additions to adventure mode. There's also a new Rider skill that the Skills article doesn't mention (and seemingly has no article of its own,) but I am having trouble with creating a page for it.

Edit: I also see that there are forts built by aboveground civs (distinct from dwarven fortresses) that are mentioned on the Sites page, but don't have an article of their own and are redirected to the dwarfy kind where they're mentioned.

They need category pages for the links to not be red. Some examples: http://dwarffortresswiki.org/index.php/Category:Version

So... I guess we're not getting a DF2020 namespace? :D
Historically that has only been done for releases that broke compatibility. Also, it's a bit late to make a new namespace at this point, since DF2014 is being updated with 0.47 stuff. We could consider renaming it "current" or something, though.

Do the workshop templates get updated automatically from the raws? The craftsdwarf workshop has two new products (dice, altar) that should be added. I haven't found a way to edit the template so I assume it parses the information from somewhere else.
