I only ask as it's an amazing source of info and would be unthinkable to ever lose it :)

2. It'll be up as long as zdoom.org is up

Hello, I know this thread has been inactive for a month, but I don't know other places to post.

I tried to contribute to the ZDoom Wiki, but I can't create an account. The first time I tried I got message like "creating new accounts disable cause of bots".
And recently, also today, I am receiving this message when I try to choose my user name:
Screenshot_2018-11-22_18-29-10.jpg
Screenshot_2018-11-22_18-29-10.jpg (17.29 KiB) Viewed 497 times


How may I create a new account to contribute to the Wiki? Thanks

Sorry for the inconvenience but the spambot horde was unrelenting.

In the Actor Flags I noticed that +ZDOOMTRANS is undocumented.

Because I am not very good with wikifying all my relevant terms so that they point elsewhere in the wiki, I'll just give a short description here:

ZDOOMTRANS is the controlling flag for r_vanillatrans. It is not meant to be used in normal mods, but nevertheless it can be applied to your actor if you so desire. All it does is disable the style checks and forces the actor to be rendered solid - but only as long as the player has r_vanillatrans 1 or 3. The flag just indicates to the engine that this is an actor that Randi modified when she implemented ZDoom's transparency system.

Generally, the flag shouldn't be used, and should it ever be extended to a property, mods using it may break.

A couple things I am unable find:
  • If/Else statements. This is the most basic decision structure and it's not explicitly documented.*
  • World/global arrays: Do they share indices with regular world/global variables? How are they actually defined?

* It is not acceptable to assume that script-writers would have this information from prior programming experience. They may not have any!

Something wrong going on with {{=}} template. It's like it's missing. I checked the deletion logs but couldn't find anything about its deletion. Looking at this page, the template is even there...

The {{!!}} and {{!}} are also affected. There could be others.

Looks like the wiki db may have gotten corrupted. I can restore backups but it will take the whole entire site down for possibly hours.

If that's what you've got to do. I'm sure people will be fine without the site for few hours.

The wiki has been restored to Sunday's backup. Everything done since then has been lost.

There is a typo in "This article lists no examples" note:

While I'm here, I'd like to thank Phantombeta, Blue Shadow, Bauul, Marrub, and other people who keep the wiki updated. It's very important work.
