Many thumbnails missing in wiki
« on: May 15, 2017, 06:13:06 PM »
On a number of pages in the wiki I see "Error creating thumbnail: file missing" where there should be images. Two example are

and https://wiki.arcengames.com/index.php?title=AI_War_2:Earlier_Than_Earlier_Alpha_Play_Instructions

This is a... strange issue. I don't see the actual images files at all. Are you able to tell me when you last saw an image on the wiki, besides the logo?

I don't recall, it's been some time; many weeks. It might be as far back as when the hacking incident happened.

Okay. Right now, I'm contacting our backup provider to see if they have the files in a backup somewhere. I'm not sure how long they keep backups, but hopefully long enough.

In general, always contact us if something doesn't seem to be working as intended. Wed much rather it be a false alarm than someone come by in 10 years and say oh it hasn't worked for 10 years. :)

If you ever notice something isn't working the way you think it should be, please make a report on Mantis, the Forums, or send us an email at [email protected] You can also reach out directly through PMs, Discord messages to a staff member online, email us directly, or contact us some other way.

I have been able to restore the vast majority of images. There are still some images that I was not able to restore. The list is in the spoiler tag.

For the missing images, all someone has to do is upload them again, or an updated version of them and they will work without a problem. If there is a problem with them after upload, let me know and I can rebuild the images to make them work.

Please remember that I, and the rest of Arcen, would prefer you to "jump the gun" when reporting an issue rather than wait a while to see if it resolves itself. The sooner we know about a potential issue, the sooner we can look into it.
