I replaced some of the screenshots from BAR section and fake DShK section of Apocalypse Now and they appear to be much sharper than before. I also replaced some Person of Interest shots in the Heizer and FiveseveN sections. Thanks for fixing it. What was the difference?

Traditionally we had used php's built in image libraries to create the resized images that appear on the site. In working to improve the speed of the site I configured MediaWiki to instead use Imagemagick (an external linux application on the server) to take load off of the php engine. Unfortunately MediaWiki by default instructs Imagemagick to resize images with 80% quality instead of 100%. This lead to the poorer quality of images you were seeing.

I won't try that again until I can configure it to use 100% quality; then I'll have you test it out with some side by side comparisons to make sure we're not losing image quality.

So are we going to get the "recent changes" and "New articles" option back? Those were a step up from constantly scrolling through the "recent changes" screen

I don't think so. Bunni said in another thread that those extensions aren't compatible with the new software.

Well, he said he was trying to see if he could code them back in but couldn't promise anything, as I recall. The original extensions don't work, but he's trying to restore the same functionality using coding skillz.

According to this, this report hasn't been run since the 7th. How do we run it again? (This applies to other reports as well, like Broken Redirects and Wanted Pages.)

I'm on it.

Update: Bunni is working to fix the Dynamic Articles extension. There is hope that it may be workable! Also, he is going to set up a script to update the "Special Pages" nightly. In older versions, these pages would update themselves. For some reason with the newer MW software, that is not the case. Thanks for your guys' continued patience while we (mostly Bunni....) work out the kinks.

I've set the special pages to update daily at 3AM EST.

The Dynamic Article extension looks likely, but multi upload doesn't. I'm looking for a replacement.
