I am in the process of upgrading the MediaWiki base to the latest version (1.18.1). Until the update is done, there will be some errors popping up on the site. The update will be done in about an hour or so. If errors still persist after that, I'll be doing a lot of tinkering to get the site back online.

I have also added about 6 new extensions to help block spam and prevent bots from messing with the site. Because of this, I've disabled the need for people to register to edit or add pages. People will still need to register to upload things, however.

As it turns out, upgrading from 1.16 to 1.18 basically screws up any custom skins. As of right now, the wiki looks like it has no CSS at all. I'll be going back and redoing the skin based on a backup and hopefully fix it. Otherwise I might just go back to 1.16 and not even bother.\

Screw 1.18.1, I just changed it back to 1.16. All is well again.

Also forgot to mention that there is a question CAPTCHA on the site now for editing pages that will ask SC related questions.

The new version actually includes some new useful features that were previously add-ons. It might be better waiting for 1.19 though, since it's due out fairly soon?

Will these upgrades apply to the SC1 wiki (such as it is)?

I can upgrade the SC1 wiki as well, sure. I ended up not upgrading to 1.18, though, so I may just wait to do both when 1.19 is out.

Wormer -- Yeah locations with same names are restrictive if I say want to give all locations empty names to save strings

Suicidal Insanity -- One thing I did change - it no longer uses "Invalid Location" for all unused locations
