Star Army Community Meeting - September 17, 2021

Hi Star Army!

After some informal polling in the Discord, we agreed the meeting that would normally be tonight (typically we hold them on the second Friday of the month) has been pushed to September 17th, next Friday, to allow us more time to plan the agenda and events, which will be posted this week, and to allow for more advance notice, as we didn't get a chance to get the word out about it in advance. I'll post more information soon.

Intermittent Page Loading Issues Under Investigation

I'm working with our web host to investigate an issue where sometimes pages fail to load on the first try. If you encounter this error it'll basically be an error message, probably a "this page didn't load" from Cloudflare, and to get around it just refresh the page and it should work. I have an idea what's happening (basically a false positive in the application firewall due to some rule updates) and I just need them to adjust the server settings so it plays nice with the request wiki...

Structured Data Updates for Wiki Pages

If you missed the last meeting, you might not have heard about the structure data that's being added to wiki pages. What is that, you ask? Well, basically it's tagging pages with nuggets of data (like for example tagging character pages with ranks or occupation or species). If namespaces or pages are added to a schema (think of a little database) under the main edit field you'll see some extra boxes. These fields are actually hugely useful to the site because they can be used to make lists...
