InterWiki "zh" indicate a wrong URL. Please fix this ( --Yes0song 00:46, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

Um, isn't zh.uncyclopedia. an old URL, from back before the communist .cn domain was created? In any case, Special:Interwiki isn't available on en: so likely there's not much anyone here can do about this fine screwup, or about any other wikia that are similarly broken. -- 02:07, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

This is fixed. Please let me know if we missed any versions. Thanks -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 10:30, 14 June 2007 (UTC)

Um, is there any explanation for why these things are happening? The domain went to "Invalid URL" on May 4 and has been that way ever since. The domain was redirecting to the Central Wikia from May 31 to June 11 and still isn't quite functioning properly. The sk: wiki still has the incompatible license (an issue raised weeks ago) and an interwiki table so broken that it can't link outbound to half the Uncyclopedia project (not just bs:, got: and hr: but a quite long list of wikis).
We do seem to be having many problems - is there some sort of configuration change in progress that's breaking things? --Carlb 13:45, 14 June 2007 (UTC)
There is a lot going on at the moment, including changes to the way we deal with images, ads, settings... all to make it possible to maintain this number of wikis as smoothly as possible. And at the same time we are upgrading 3000 wikis (2 or so left to do) and introducing the new skin, search, forums, etc to many of the wikis we host (the skin is not being set as default on Uncyclopedia and similar wikis, but will be available to choose). So, yes, at the moment there are a lot of major changes going on. Hopefully these will make things smoother in the future, but it certainly feels as though there are more blips at the moment.
On the specific issues, I don't know what happened with the zh url - I will ask KJ, who looks after the Chinese wikis.
Please tell me more about any problems with desencyclopedie, it's difficult to fix things we don't know about! (my talk page is best).
As far as I can see on sk: Necyklopedia is sk (slovak), has no content yet, and is not a moved wiki. So that should be GFDL. Necyklopedie is cs (Czech). This one moved to Wikia and we imported the content. It is correctly labelled CC. If this is wrong, please let me know.
I've renewed the ticket for Necyklopedia's interwiki links. As always, please let me know of problems you find with the interwiki table. It's best if you do this on my talk page. I'd also be grateful if you would also update your wikis, let me know if you want a list of missing links.
I hope that answers everything for now -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 11:58, 15 June 2007 (UTC)
The situation with dÉsencyclopédie? See and the issues should be apparent. The "wikia spotlight" seems to be the only graphic to display correctly. The problems have been known for weeks now, the issue having been raised here as far back as June 1.
The sk: issue is that the plan appears to be to split the existing Czechloslovakian content from cs: to cs: (Czech) and sk: (Slovak}. According to wikipedia:sk:uncyclopedia "Slovenská verzia Uncyclopedie v súčasnej dobe neexistuje; česká verzia - Necyklopedie - neochotne akceptuje príspevky v slovenčine." (the Slovakian version of Uncyclopedia doesn't exist; the Czech version - Necyklopedie - currently accepts Slovakian articles). This is going to create a troublesome issue with incompatible licenses when any existing Slovakian content is moved from the Czech Necyklopedie to the new wiki. Case in point: sk:AAAAAAAAA! - no attribution, no indication that the content is under a non-commercial licence. IOW, clearly misrepresented as GFDL when it is not. --Carlb 22:20, 17 June 2007 (UTC)
