Some articles restored; Radnen's second battle system tutorial is one of them.

@Radnen - That tutorial had a lot of potential, I'd love to see it filled some more!

Thank you for doing that! I'll see about implementing a version of that tutorial.
If you use code to help you code you can use less code to code. Also, I have approximate knowledge of many things.

NOTICE: I've put into place a mechanism by which an article can link to alternate language versions of an article. Visit this MediaWiki page to see how to create an article in a language other than English and what to transclude so that the article links to all of its available languages.

Visit the Sphere page and its newly created Spanish translation (which I hope doesn't suck too bad! ;)  ) to see it in action live.

I hope this is useful in the future, as I know we have a more than a few users who speak and/or write a language that's not English and this officially give us the opportunity to properly store articles on the wiki in alternate languages :)

Added the ability to add citations to an article like Wikipedia; visit https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Cite/Cite.php#Usage and https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Cite/Special:Cite.php#Example for usage.

MAJOR UPDATE: Added the Math extension and it uses MathJax (JavaScript) for rendering. Visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Math (particularly the Formatting using TeX section) for instructions on what TeX/LaTeX the <math> element supports.

Is the Wiki down? It connects, but just shows a blank page when I try going to it.

Yes.

It's a 500: Internal Error. DaVince and I both alerted Neo, who is working on the issue.

I'm sure Neo can tell you more.

Alright, thanks.

I just wanted to look up one of the beginners guides to get my head back in the game.

Both registration and logging in seem to be pretty broken on the wiki right now, as a result of the server upgrade a while ago. I'm going to look into it.

Edit: I stated the wiki is under maintenance mode, but I disabled this again for the time being. Updating the wiki is a task that will take some time.

In the meantime, if you need to have a new account, please let me know.
