I have figured out the Custom Players issues on the wiki.

If you look at the page All Pages in the MAIN namespace you will find that the Custom Players that have been added since the reboot are in the wrong namespace. And if you compare that to the pages stored in the custom namespace here, you can see that all the pages are still there... but the link will take you to the page stored in the Main namespace.

Basically, the pages are there, the images are there... but the namespace has been turned "content off". So it will not be declared as a namespace to store pages (anything there before will be left there). When you go to the page Custom Players:Joe Blow now, it will take you to Main:Custom Players: Joe Blow, where "Custom Players: Joe Blow" is the title of the page in the Main namespace... which isn't what we want (a fake namespace that looks like a real one but isn't- to verify this the talk page should say Custom Players Talk: but instead it shows Talk:Custom Players:, use Raul Hernandez as an example)

The problem, if I fix it now, you can no longer access the pages in the Main namespace with the Custom Players: prefix, because it will interpret it correctly and redirect you to the proper namespace, thus leaving MORE pages lost in limbo and more duplication.

I'm going to ask that NO FURTHER CUSTOM PLAYERS BE ADDED TO THE WIKI until further notice.

The pages that are unique will be transferred over without issue.

The pages that have been duplicated will be overwritten with the most recent page version. If you wish to recover old information, you can retrieve it by viewing the history of the page.


I apologize for not being able to solve the problem sooner, but we will hopefully get the wiki back to it's well-oiled self soon.

The moves are complete, as well as a few additional page moves of stray players into the new/old Custom Players Namespace.

You are now allowed to add/edit pages of custom players/teams.

Please remember to put ALL custom-made players and custom arrange team setups in this namespace. The MAIN namespace is reserved for game information.
