So far, we’ve successfully updated the MediaWiki software to the most recent version (1.16.4). We know of a few cosmetic changes that we need to do to the skins as a result of the update, but we will save those for later Monday as it is 1:30 AM EDT here, and those changes are minor in nature.

We have deployed the WYSIWYG editor, which can now be seen in action on any edit page. If you choose not to use the WYSIWYG editor, there is a toggle above the editing form that allows contributors to do this.

As of right now, we’ve unlocked the Wikis for editing, so have at it!

If there are any technical issues, you are welcome to leave comments on our blog, or e-mail us directly: webmaster (AT) battlestarwiki (DOT) org. We will get to them in the morning.

Thank you for your patience.

    Hi, there appears to be a slight problem with your web server configuration. It appears to insert an extra blank line at the beginning of every request. That means that API requests for xml content representations fail due to invalid xml parsing (e.g., if you try to access http://en.battlestarwiki.org/w/api.php?action=parse&page=Star%20Kobol&format=xml). But you can see this issue when you choose “view source” on any of your wiki pages.
