Alexz1568 is trolling, you need to stop responding in anger - he is encouraging you to fall for bait. You left him a taunt which is just as bad.
Just listen to what I say. Close the thread, don't fall for bait and do not taunt.
Close the thread, report it to staff via special contact. You can also report alexz's friends as accomplices.
Go to mediawiki:sitemessage, only works for monobook

They improved the login mechanism so extensions have now more control to extend it, like integrating 2FA, or doing external authentication like login with an LDAP or OAuth, not that it had any security issue. How passwords are stored in the database wasn't modified as part of this, but on MediaWiki 1.24 where stored passwords were salted and hashed with sha256 instead of the more insecure md5. This means upgrading wikia would give stronger password encryption and probably a much nicer way to integrate failbook accounts.
despite this being an old thread, staff's not going to upgrade mediawiki anytime soon or really ever
the help page gives the dimensions for the word mark, should be around 135 px by 65 px max. oh and staff won't increase the height (65 px) so don't bother asking...
note that you need to get staff to enable js and css prior, also need to be admin as well

oh i'm sure you read it carefully, MySQL server is down that means you won't be able to do just about anything at this point.
at this point, you won't be able to do much at all
waste of bug report then, only distracting them from fixing known issue
@Tupka217 if you had actually bothered to read Rappy's response in the below thread, they are aware. They also disabled search to fix internal issues.
their database systems are obvious out of wack currently, wait for them to fix it.
i just got a similar error with moving on ice age, logs indicate success
you could asking staff, its possible from the backend to provide an image dump via ftp but whether that file can be uploaded; i'm unsure.
if you can confirm the user in the game is the same user on wikia then if they truly wished for a block, you can safely grant it with reason "user request". wiki community won't rebel against you for blocking under the above circumstance. what you do need to watch out for as stated above is "the request was intentional and blocking them won't backfire on you", basically watchout for trolls.
try clearing your browser's cache, these changes take a bit to update.
why would staff not grant a bot flag on a test or sandbox wiki? other than that, you need community consensus supporting the bot flag and purpose.
only relevant to lyric wiki
replacetext doesn't work even if you request staff to turn it on, they broke it and won't fix it
