Discussion page of Maintenance

Hi! Following some backend changes allowing far easier updates to the wiki, we're currently going through a huge backlog of queued maintenance tasks. You may have noticed things look a little different lately.

The following is a running changelog of updates:

Quick Site Maintenance (Mar 21, 2024)

If you're seeing this message, maintenance was completed. Some minor backend upgrades and a server migration were completed this morning.

URL Changes (Sep 22, 2023)

A painful situation regarding our multiple-url situation ( and has been resolved, and will always redirect to the new domain now.) Cynder (talk) 04:06, 23 September 2023 (UTC)

We've migrated over to short-urls now. is now Cynder (talk) 04:34, 23 September 2023 (UTC)

Backend Migration Complete (Sep 22, 2023)

We've just finished migrating our backend to new infrastructure which should allow for more open and accessible development on the website and backend, and increase our reliability in general. I look forward to publishing more information about this soon. As this involved migration of a 15 year old database, please reach out to me on discord (0cyn) if you encounter any issues with edits, reliability, error messages, etc. Cynder (talk) 03:04, 23 September 2023 (UTC)

Theme Changes (Sep 17, 2023)

We're now using the vector-2022 theme, with a site-wide css override for reactive dark mode.

User CSS pages utilizing the previous dark-mode hack were wiped as they are both no longer functional and no longer required.

The Citizen theme has been added. I am deliberating setting it as default; It's good, however, it could serve to add to confusion regarding "The Apple Wiki" which mirrors old versions of our pages.

But it's now there if you would like to use it (I certainly will be)

I've also added a wordmarked logo, new site icons, and fixed some minor CSS issues on the mainpage Cynder (talk) 16:19, 17 September 2023 (UTC)

I'm thinking with citizen maybe going with a modified color set just to give proper distinction? Deliberating what that would be, however. Talking to my self here but :) Cynder (talk) 01:24, 19 September 2023 (UTC)

We've gone with the Citizen theme as a default, because it's like the only good MediaWiki theme, with some minor color modifications for now.

More extensive overhauls to it are being drafted at the moment and postponed till after further maintenance which will be going on later today. Cynder (talk) 12:48, 19 September 2023 (UTC)

Site Upgrade (Sep 17, 2023)

We've just completed a very smooth, very overdue upgrade from 1.31 to 1.39.4

Currently, it's planned to stay on this version for a while, as 1.39.4 is LTS and it'd be nice to avoid potential downtime. The 1.39 => latest jump should happen within the year, however.
