Error creating thumbnail

Hey, I've recently been remaking some paint galleries for some potato medals and I've run into a problem, maybe. I uploaded the first of the galleries today and saw that many of the images I had uploaded show up in the gallery and file itself with the text saying "Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination." (Example File:Painted Madness vs Machines Burnished Beryl 2019 UNPAINTED.png) I was just curious if this was just a cache issue or if I should be doing something different before uploading more images. I would appreciate any help! H20verdrive (talk) 02:45, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

Hey, that's only a cache issue that should not affect images and should fix itself in a few days. This is the most recent image stored, which is what you uploaded · Ashe (talk) 03:10, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

Delete my account.

> While the Wiki Staff (even administrators) are unable to fully delete accounts on the Team Fortress Wiki due to limitations of the software, users that no longer wish to have their account publicly present on the Team Fortress Wiki may request a deletion of any self-made content created and/or uploaded within their user space, including the user page. Users may also request their edits to be hidden in the History tab and/or have their account renamed to DeletedUserXXXX. The aforementioned task(s) can only be carried out by administrators, however.

Please do the above and delete as much data and public info as possible. I do not want anything with this alias on the website. I would like my account to be renamed to DeletedUserXXXX and all of my edits and revision history to be hidden.

Done. — Tark 14:16, 2 February 2022 (UTC)

Gloves of Running Urgently uses wrong defindex.

Hi. The GRU is using the wrong defindex. The weapon had a new defindex when the Jungle Inferno update came in. The current defindex "1184" on the Template:Dictionary/defindex page is now used exclusively to the robots on MVM. The new index should be "239". Due to this, clicking to purchase the weapon on the page does not work, as it's redirecting to the old defindex.

Was going to update but saw that the page is automatically replaced by this bot, so.

Oh, and I posted this on User talk:PhoneWave beforehand. I thought no one used the "About this board" section, lol. User Gabrielwoj Signature Icon.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 03:04, 5 February 2022 (UTC)

April Fools Day

Hi Tark. You expressed displeasure with the content I created for April Fools Day 2020, instead delaying it to 2021 which arguably created other problems. Since April Fools Day 2022 is coming up, I was wondering if you had any comments or thoughts or simply wanted to use whatever is made? Naleksuh (talk) 22:02, 8 March 2022 (UTC)

I haven't been following the wiki lately, but I recall some users are throwing ideas around for an April Fools event. I'm not sure how far they are (or if they gave up already), but I'd suggest contacting them instead (see April Fools talk page).
Once you guys have a project ready to go, please contact an active staff member so they can review and setup everything. — Tark 00:38, 9 March 2022 (UTC)

Operation Peculiar Pandemonium on Main Page Current Events?

Will we include Operation Peculiar Pandemonium, the usual Pineapple.TF custom MVM memes tour, on the main page's current events section once it gets a blog post soon? It's a short event, April Fools tours usually only last a week or so; it shouldn't preempt anything potentially more notable in say, a week's timespan, the way Binary Blackout lasted four months. -ThatHatGuy (talk) 14:29, 29 March 2022 (UTC)

Are you involved in this project in any way? I always see you making pages before events like this one are even announced. — Tark 18:15, 29 March 2022 (UTC)
Not directly involved, no. I just grab the info that's available from tf_english.txt and items_game.txt and make sandbox pages for the eventual tour. -ThatHatGuy (talk) 22:19, 29 March 2022 (UTC)
Good.
As I said before, you're free to include any events that have a blog post. Events must have a start and end date and must be labeled as such on Steam: Bowmann Brawl Tournament is eligible, Operation Binary Blackout is not.
Also please remember to make use of the {{item description}} template. — Tark 15:05, 30 March 2022 (UTC)
That's the first I've heard of a new description template. I've added the medal descriptions, but what do I do in terms of the {{backpack item}} displays I'm using? I understand that putting the item's name in the item-name field makes it read the string from the dictionary, and the name gets filled in. But the item-description field just displays plain text, like it always has. Do I put nothing in there, do I put the item name in there? I imagine it would still just display the item name as text. -ThatHatGuy (talk) 01:50, 31 March 2022 (UTC)
