Wiki Upload Issues
« on: September 29, 2014, 02:32:24 PM »
Hmm, for some reason the wiki upload isn't properly updating my map's features after I reupload it. It looks the same.

Example:

https://elliquiy.com/elluiki/images/archive/3/35/20140929192117!Gandona.JPG Original Version
https://elliquiy.com/elluiki/images/3/35/Gandona.JPG Updated version

They look the same. I was wondering if it is upload issue, so decided to test it on PB

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v222/Morkael/Gandona_zps9b8e6bae.jpg PB version.

As you can see in PB version, the water around the lake has been updated to look more deep and there has been a glow effect given to the water of the rivers/lake. For some reason it will not apply this when I updated it through Wiki since Wiki allows larger scale maps vs PB capping map sizes.

Images are set to hard cache for a week on E. Just shift+reload, or wait a week.

Oh, it actually works. xD Is there any way for me to remove the additional uploads cluttering the place since I went into panic?

I believe if you mark them 'delete' the wiki staff will remove them when they sweep.

Yep.  What probably happened is that your browser cached the old image reference, so even though the new one was up on the wiki, you were still seeing the old one.  Shift + reload, or F5, should allow you to see the updated image. 

And as Oreo said, just go into the Edit tab and add in
Code: [Select]
[[Category:Delete]]on all the images (or pages) you want to get rid of.   One of us will empty the trash bucket the next time we do a sweep.

Alright, will do after I get home from work.

Thanks. ^^

Edit: Durrr... I don't see an edit option on the Wiki page for images submitted. >.<

Edit II:: Never-mind found it, but... Doesn't that do the entire file link? How do I pick certain parts of the updated parts of the file, mainly the two most recent ones? I don't want to mess up and have every thing deleted. >.>

Do the pictures show up individually if you click on Contributions in the upper right of the main Wiki page?

^_^ I hope so. It is the only way I know how to find my pictures, so hoped they might be able to be edited from there.

Er...  ???  yeah, that will mark the entire page (or image) for deletion.  If you just want to edit the page, feel free to do so.

Good question.  That's probably one for Vekseid, or someone who knows more about wikicode than I do.

I really wouldn't worry about it, though.   As far as I know, server space isn't an issue.

A wiki admin should be able to purge them individually. Just usually not worth bothering.
