Update

This has been fixed now, edit as normal. ~ PheNaxKian talk 17:12, 16 April 2011 (UTC)


Huh? I can't edit my build!

Yup, sounds about right. Not just builds either. Any page that uses the PvX extension (specifically the <PvXBig> tag) will "break pages" (for lack of a better term).

How come? What's going on?!

Recently we (Toraen and I) have tried to make some changes to the PvX extensions main file so that it correctly displays changes made by certain primary attributes (such as Fast casting in regards to PvE skills). This is where the problems are coming from. Something we've done has broken it, but we're not entirely sure what (not having access to server logs or a testing server to pinpoint doesn't help).

When will it be fixed?

That depends on what you mean by "fixed". Everything will be working again as soon as our Curse overlords revert the affected file. This means it will be working, but we won't have any of the changes we wanted doing in place (clarification: it will basically be like it was 2 days ago).

What about the changes? Are you giving up on them?

For the time being, yes. This is the third (I think) attempt at these changes (with 'fixes' being applied between each of them), and it's hard to debug the problem when you can't do incremental tests without touching the live version (the one you guys all see) or do things as when we want to do them (we have to ask Curse to copy files/code to the server which can take some time, and reverting takes time (as you see)).

However Curse are working on a testing platform that when done (no ETA given so don't expect this in a huge rush) and setup we can play around with as much as we like (yay for getting to use it with root access!) before even touching the version you guys 'see' everyday.

How about skill descriptions? Are they affected by this?

No. The skill information is kept in a different file so updates should occur as normal!

Apologies for the inconvenience guys! ~ PheNaxKian talk 21:31, 15 April 2011 (UTC)
