I noticed on SS Wiki that a lot of cubers' ages haven't been updated for years.

I'm not an expert in MediaWiki. Is there a possibility of making a template on the SpeedSolving Wiki which would automatically update cubers' ages (since the infoboxes include an AGE parameter), and how could that be done?

I've upgraded the Wiki to 1.31 today so a few minor corrections may be needed. Please edit as you notice issues.

I guess you're aware that we can't login to make edits
Internal error

[W4AOJzMDChO5ttydglk-ygAAABw] 2018-08-24 13:54:48: Fatal exception of type "Error"
and that the 4x4x4 parity algorithms page isn't loading?

EDIT:
Okay, it looks like the 4x4x4 parity algorithms page is back up, and I guess you're handling the internal error.

Thanks! Also, I like the new look!

Can you make edits now?

Fixed the issue with the 4x4 page, was an issue with the PHP memory limits. Let me know of any other issues. Thanks.

Since I only just saw this, yes it is possible. I don't know if it requires ParserFunctions or not (I checked a couple of templates from other wikis and they used them) but either way PJK installed ParserFunctions a few years ago so it should be fine. I just don't remember the most efficient way to make a template like that. Wikipedia's template code for age is this.

You are correct, it is fixed. I have no edits to do at the moment, but I will let you know of other issues. (But you probably got everything.)

Thanks.
Go ahead and test making edits, uploading files, etc. to make sure all functionality works okay. Please do report any issues you have. Thanks!

Oh, I spoke too soon.

I guess I might just abbreviate 4x4x4 parity algorithms page as 4^3 PAP.

So:

I went ahead to try to edit the 4^3 PAP, and it gave me this error message.

However, I tried again in a few seconds, and then I was able to make the edit that I was trying to make (in the exact section I wanted to make it in the first time). In addition, the preview feature works (if you needed to know that as well). There's no security question before adding a new url like there was in the past though. (Just in case you needed to know that.)

Since you asked, I also uploaded a new image (success). I also put that in an edit on the 4^3 PAP (success). Then I removed it (success).

Fixed, that was an issue that I created that happened to be exactly as you were testing, bad timing. Let me know if it happens again.

Today I've setup a new responsive theme that came out with Mediawiki 1.31.

Right now it looks good, but the OLL page, for example, on mobile doesn't look great as the images are too small. Let me know your feedback and please assist with resolving any formatting issues. Thanks.

Could/would someone mind explaining to me how the UWR's work on the wiki page? And what I mean by that is in regards to the solves/times that do not have videos. I know that not to many people care to much about the UWR's, but if someone were to get sub UWR in a particular event how would you go about adding in there times/knowing if someone got the said time? I am sure that it is primarily based on being Honest (which I find to be great and wonderful to see) but for the doubters/those that are skeptical with it, how does that all work?

Thank you very much in advance for you help.

Lastly, Does anyone know what the UWR's are for Master Pyraminx Ao50 and Ao100?

UWR page is a bit of a mess IMO.

If you got the time or believe the person who got the time you just edit the page

Community consensus. Or more basically whoever reverts it back more (if there's any actual conflict). Tymon (the pyra WR holder) recently posted some ridiculous pyra times on Facebook like a 1.8 Ao100 IIRC. They were added to the UWR page but I later removed them due to lack of plausibility and no one has since added them back as far as I know.

Thank you very much for the reply. That helps a lot. The other question that I forgot to ask is; How do the events without real scrambles work, when being added? (events such as Master Pyraminx, and a lot of the other events in the "Other" section). Are they all hand scrambled or are there proper scrambles for each event?

If there are proper scrambles for the events, does anyone know where I can find Master Pyraminx scrambles? Or what do you think would be the best way to scramble Master Pyraminx, other then by just hand scrambles?

Sorry for all the questions, but I am just trying to see how this all works,especially since I have been practicing a bit of Master Pyraminx, so if I should ever in the future get sub UWR for it, I would like to make sure that I am doing everything right. Thank you very much for your help and answers.

mentions "To scramble this thing i have used the standart WCA pyraminx scramble, including tips + some random moves to mix up the smaller edges"
