Create comic page in lieu of DgbrtBOT[edit]

I could see here that the bot seemed to have failed this time (or did RamenChef fail to wait long enough?) --Kynde (talk) 20:41, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

Ah sorry, saw your comment in the Discussion now. Great if it has been fixed. --Kynde (talk) 20:47, 20 March 2018 (UTC)


ReCAPTCHA v1 has expired, and since no one replied on the admin forum, I asked Kynde, and he told me to come to you. So can you upgrade it to v2? Thanks. Herobrine (talk) 13:05, 9 April 2018 (UTC)

Hi Herobrine, this is bad. Also email notification doesn't work since a long time. All admins are nonexistent since months and I don't have access the the server. I will check what I can do with the BOT account. But there is not much hope. --Dgbrt (talk) 15:00, 9 April 2018 (UTC)
Oh... ok. But if I remember correctly, I think one of the admins (I think Jeff?) has a twitter account, but I don't have one and I can't ask on twitter. Could you like contact him that way? And maybe tell him to add a few admins to deal with problems like this? Thanks! Herobrine (talk) 10:18, 11 April 2018 (UTC)
Hi Herobrine, I don't have a twitter account too, but I will sign in when things go worse. And this will happen in the future when all admins are still absent because:
  • The next invoice for the web-service at Cloudflare must be paid.
  • The name registration at will expire on 2018-08-10.
And it seems that there is no advertising here on the left. So we definitely need new admins here to address these and other issues. I would apply for this, but not alone. --Dgbrt (talk) 13:07, 11 April 2018 (UTC)

Hello Dgbrt, I saw your message both here and on Wikipedia. Messaging me on my talk page is enough, I'll see it in my feed reader. Unfortunately, I can't do anything about recaptcha as I don't have ssh access to the server. --SlashMe (talk) 15:25, 11 April 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply SlashMe. You don't have ssh access but as an Administrator you are maybe able to send an email to the relevant persons. --Dgbrt (talk) 16:09, 11 April 2018 (UTC)
Unfortunately, I don't have Jeff's email address either. --SlashMe (talk) 06:47, 12 April 2018 (UTC)

The problem is solved. --Dgbrt (talk) 14:50, 22 May 2018 (UTC)

I'm here[edit]

I'm sorry Dgbt (and all my other friendly editors/helpers!) Let me know what needs to be done and I'll work through it. I'm going to try to be much more proactive and logged in. It's been a busy few months. Please accept my apologies. The main complication with reCaptcha is that to upgrade to use ReCaptchaNoCaptcha, I'd have to upgrade the wiki. I'm not opposed, it is just a larger work effort than I thought! We are also quite a bit behind! --Jeff (talk) 03:18, 13 April 2018 (UTC)

A slight technical problem[edit]

The image size for comics is a bit off, the zoom is weird and there's some space to the right of the screen... Not sure what to do about it, but as an admin now (congratulations, by the way!) you should be able to deal with it. Herobrine (talk) 13:06, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

Hi Herobrine, what is weird? Please give an example of what's wrong and how it should be. BTW: To be an admin just means more work ;) --Dgbrt (talk) 13:20, 4 July 2018 (UTC)
It seems that there's only one problem left, rather than the three I mentioned before, but it's still a problem. For example, normally pages should be like this, where there's a sidebar to the left, and the rest is the page you're viewing. But now for comic explanations, there's an empty sidebar on the right side of the screen that shouldn't be there, and the page itself has been squeezed so now it only takes up about 60% of the screen's width. Herobrine (talk) 01:24, 5 July 2018 (UTC)
Sorry for the delay, but it should be fixed now. --Dgbrt (talk) 16:38, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
