Spam filters[edit]

I understand that Abuse Filter can be immensely helpful, been there done that. But this:

...is bullshit. AF has a warning mode, ffs, or, better, just turn off anonymous edits completely, so i could outright know that people as me aren't welcome here without fighting abuse filter for each edit while trying to be minimally useful, it's degrading. And no, i'm not going to create account for each wiki, that i happen to edit casually, thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.226.178.23 (Talk) 16:16, 14 May 2016‎ (CEST)

I'm pretty sure a lot of those blocks was a result of you putting "sucks dick" in the edit summary.
Sorry about the blocks before that though; that was a result of you creating brand new pages with non-whitefiltered links on them. Spam bots do that a lot.
I'll reduce the spam bot filter to warning first.
My apologies for the inconvenience. ~ Meneth (talk) 17:03, 14 May 2016 (CEST)
BTW, if you have a Paradox Forum Account, you just have to click "log in" and log into it (if you aren't already) in order to create a wiki account that'll work on all the Paradox Wikis. ~ Meneth (talk) 17:08, 14 May 2016 (CEST)
Oh, yeah. Sorry about that. Got a bit hotheaded because of proxy hassles. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.226.178.23 (Talk) 04:56, 15 May 2016‎ (CEST)
No worries. I know how annoying false positives can be. ~ Meneth (talk) 10:11, 15 May 2016 (CEST)

File upload[edit]

I've been trying to upload the icon of a planetary modifier I discovered that's not on the Stellaris wiki. I took a screenshot and did my best to extract the icon. After I uploaded it I found that it wasn't quite consistent with the ones already on the wiki. I made a quick edit so that it was more stylistically similar and tried to change the file I'd already uploaded to the wiki. When I was finished, the icon on the wiki hadn't changed, so I tried again. Once again, it failed to change, except this time the file history showed the improved icon. Trying to revert to what looked like the improved icon had no effect except to continue the pattern. Do you know any way around this? Here's the file I'm talking about.

Nevermind, it seems to have either fixed itself or there was a glitch on my end. The file is fixed now. ~ Databug (talk) 00:15, 21 May 2016 (CDT)
Files are cached on your machine so as to reduce server load. That means that often when it changes, that won't immediately be reflected. Generally a refresh will fix that. When it doesn't, a force refresh (CTRL+F5) almost certainly will. ~ Meneth (talk) 10:17, 21 May 2016 (CEST)

Allowed content?[edit]

What type of Wiki pages are allowed? For instance, I have been playing a multiplayer game with my father where I play as a Fallen empire and have done some heavy modifications to the gamestate file. I'd like to share how to do certain things that would not normally be available through console commands and such. — Preceding unsigned comment added by StrikerTTD (talk) 16:40, 29 January 2018‎ (CET)

That sounds like a modding guide. If you can make the page more generic that just playing as a FE then that is even better. You could use the playing as a FE as an example of the changes made in the code so other users can do similar. Again please sign your edits using ~~~~.
