is wiki css broken?

When I look at discussion threads, I do not see anymore separate post highlighting? The whole discussion with action links now looks like one a single continuous stream.

Does anyone else experience it?

Beaming (talk)19:13, 2 March 2019

I experienced the same bug two weeks ago. But it seems fixed for me now, even though I didn't do anything.

Perhaps it's an intermittent issue?

MultiplyByZer0 (talk)20:07, 2 March 2019

The issue seems to be with the js resources which fails to load

Xor (talk)03:41, 3 March 2019

I have a theory about the root cause of the problem, but I need more data to confirm.

Can someone experiencing this issue please open the browser console (F12 -> Console tab), and post the contents of it? Also, which browser are you using?

If I my idea is right, you should see Uncaught ReferenceError: jQuery is not defined.

MultiplyByZer0 (talk)07:55, 3 March 2019

Same here. That's why I suspect the cause is js resources. However this issue seems to happen some time, and disappear some time. Maybe browser caches that once it successfully loads.

Xor (talk)08:15, 3 March 2019

I see something else in Firefox:

SyntaxError: illegal character load.php:1:190

When I go to


After character 190 it is a bunch of strange characters. I guess something was corrupted on the database?

Skilgannon (talk)16:35, 3 March 2019

Yeah, it looks like jQuery is missing a byte somewhere.

Enamel 32 (talk)22:57, 3 March 2019

It seems there are two separate problems then.

Everyone who sees Uncaught SyntaxError: Invalid or unexpected token is:

  • Using Monobook (the default skin), either by choice or by not being logged in.
  • Experiencing this problem continuously.
  • The root cause is that this script, which should contain jQuery and MediaWiki frontend code, has parts of it overwritten with 155648 0x00 bytes.
  • Because that script does not parse, the loading process is broken.
  • This probably requires a server-side fix.
  • People seeing this: Skilgannon

Meanwhile, everyone who sees Uncaught ReferenceError: jQuery is not defined is:

  • Using the Vector skin.
  • Using Chrome.
  • Experiencing this problem intermittently.
  • For the Vector skin, this script, which contains jQuery and MediaWiki frontend code, it perfectly fine.
  • However, that script is loaded by this script through document.write() of a <script> tag.
  • Chrome is known to block the use of document.write() to load scripts on slow Internet connections.
  • Thus, since the script that contains and exposes jQuery is not loaded, other code that depends on it errors with Uncaught ReferenceError: jQuery is not defined.
  • Possible fix: Go to chrome://flags, set "Block scripts loaded via document.write" to "Disabled", and restart your browser.
  • People experiencing this: Xor and past me

Robocode IRC

The channel from the old wiki is decidedly dead. Is there a new one? I can't find one on any network.

If not, I'm on, I can transfer ownership of the channel to an appropriate veteran if one joins it.

Whilst the wiki discussion thing is good for serious robocode questions and things which require the persistency of a wiki, I think having a place to chill out and talk robocode more casually might be nice. Especially for things like bouncing ideas around and getting more instant feedback on things.

What are other robocoders thoughts/opinions?

I think part of me is still struggling to associate a wiki with quick responses... :P

Cbrowne01:40, 13 October 2011

ok, maybe I can't transfer ownership (it's already owned by someone?) but I can idle in there quite happily until someone else pops along :)

Cbrowne01:41, 13 October 2011

according to freenode's FAQ, the channel #robocode is under silly regulations, and we should use ##robocode instead, unless we can complete a "group registration" in order to secure #robocode (failing being able to contact Chase-san, who is the current "founder" of #robocode).

The upshot of this is that ##robocode is the channel I will be idling in (as well as #robocode, just in case anybody shows up there), and my recommended channel to join (unless you know who Chase-san is, or can navigate around freenode's bureaucracy)

Cbrowne01:49, 13 October 2011

What about me?

The reason I don't keep up the robocode IRC is that no one really ever went in there.

Chase-san17:43, 13 October 2011

I used to love to hang around in IRC channels. But these days, I don't really have a good time to do it. I can't do it at work, and at home the only time I spend on my comp
