I was changing my user preferences. I wanted to see what the other skins looked like. When I changed it and saved the changes, the screen went blank and I could do nothing to fix it. The only way that I can do this is that I am currently logged out (that I had to click in another tab that I had open, so the skin change had not yet effected it. Any help in resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated, and you might want to try to get those other skins working. For reference, I am using Firefox 25.0.1, on Windows 7 Pro, 64-bit. My username is karrachr000. Please contact me at karraker_chris@yahoo.com 24.183.138.18

EDIT: email: karraker_chris@yahoo.com I have retard fingers... sorry 24.183.138.18

FA article status[edit]

Should we implement a full page protection on any featured articles? We aren't like wikipedia and always updating, the articles are practically in a finished state once they hit FA. Besides we can always have people use talk pages for proposed changes. Just a thought. Tivanir (talk) 09:05, 7 May 2014 (MDT)

I'm impervious, and not sure about it. They do, sometimes, catch things and make some worthwhile edits like [1], [2] and [3] but they do make lots of changes which are likely done because of a lack of knowledge about the page. It is not too much work to keep the pages up to date for me at least, and I have not had a major conflict with IPs over a FA. --Green Dragon (talk) 12:44, 7 May 2014 (MDT)
True enough. It was mostly just a thought, and I didn't know if we wanted to start implementing it or just call it good as is. Tivanir (talk) 14:42, 7 May 2014 (MDT)

Fixing the MSRD[edit]

On this page, the Molotov Cocktail has an error. The table info for it is out of place. Indeed it has been for a very long time. Perhaps someone might fix it, now that I am reporting it on this page? It's nothing big, but it's been like that for years :P--GamerAim (talk) 17:40, 6 October 2014 (MDT)

Got it, thanks! --Green Dragon (talk) 05:11, 9 October 2014 (MDT)

Fixing SRD Links[edit]

The page creature by typs links in the animal section to animal typ. Under dragon to dragon type but under aberration not to aberration typ. The page abberation type links under "List of Aberration Type Creatures" to practically every single page in the wiki. The page Ghaele links the word "incandescent" to scent.

Caught and fixed 'em both. Thanks kindly! --SgtLion (talk) 08:08, 31 October 2014 (MDT)

The homebrew creature Crypt Chanter somehow managed to infiltrate SRD(given that all its abilities seems to be homebrew I assume so it is). In particular it can be found under SRD creatures, SRD creatures by type CR, SRD creatures by type under incoporal. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 2001:4c50:14c:7500:4cab:3a36:8847:b0f1 (talkcontribs) .

Sorted it, thanks very much for the catch! --SgtLion (talk) 03:59, 18 July 2015 (MDT)

SRD:Book of Infinite Spells[edit]

Requesting a change to the artifact page. Paragraphs 2 and to be changed to the following:

Determine the exact spell by using the tables for determining [[SRD:Scrolls#Table:_Scroll_Types|major scroll spells]].

Once a page is turned, it can never be flipped back—paging through a ''book of infinite spells'' is a one-way trip. If the book is closed, it always opens again to the page it was on before the book was closed. When the last page is turned, the book vanishes.

This change removes the non-nonsensical reference to SRD:Turned, and provides a quick link to the table. --Sigma 7 (talk) 19:52, 8 November 2014 (MST)

Done. Thanks~ Nice addition with the scroll spells link, there. --SgtLion (talk) 02:48, 9 November 2014 (MST)

"Sledged" skin CSS[edit]

In Chrome I have always noticed a bothersome gap between the page actions at the top of the screen and the main content block (see http://imgur.com/HyDiGz8). Messing with the CSS in my browser, the culprit seems to be a little line in http://www.dandwiki.com/w/skins/sledged/main.css?303, right near the beginning:

#content{margin:2.8em 0 0 12.2em; … [and other unrelated stuff]

Changing the 2.8em to 2.75em nudges the main content block up just a smidge, enough to properly bridge the gap. This change doesn't appear to break any other visual elements. If the appropriate administrator (I suspect this is a sysadmin job, not just a wiki admin job) could find and manually edit that file, I would appreciate it greatly <3. —Proton[talk] 17:47, 7 December 2014 (MST)

I always felt this was actually on purpose, to differentiate between actual content and the technicalities behind that content. But I mean I could live with it either way, but I'unno. --SgtLion (talk) 13:14, 8 December 2014 (MST)

SSL connection error and missing captchas[edit]

Greetings! I just found out about this wiki and am excited to put in all the 5e stuff I've been making. However I have an issue with editing/creating pages

When trying to edit pages I do not see the captcha but do see the puzzle thing (which my computer seems to regularly solve in under 5 seconds?). Chrome in the URL bar informs me that "This webpage is attempting to load scripts from unauthenticated sources" I can tell it to run unsafe scripts, which makes the capcha appear.

After solving the capcha, when i hit the save page button it tries to load for a while and then sends to a page that says " SSL connection error

ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR

details Unable to make a secure connection to the server. This may be a problem with the server, or it may be requiring a client authentication certificate that you don't have. "

the page does appear to get saved, and i can go to it in the wiki. I also get the same error message from attempting to follow the confirm your email link —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Bradles (talkcontribs) . Please sign your posts!

That does sound awkward. If you tell us what browser/version you're using, we might be able to have a better look at the issue, because nobody else is getting this error, as far as we're aware. --SgtLion (talk) 03:59, 10 May 2015 (MDT)
As per Blue's talk page, it looks like there was a config error. It appears to have been rectified now. --SgtLion (talk) 07:40, 11 June 2015 (MDT)
