The new wiki has launched and it's awesome! But if you have been playing around with editing you may come across an issue in which you get an error 403. The server has built in security to protect against potential attacks, one of the most popular being an SQL-based attack. Because of this, the server has a black list of words that cannot be used as they are commonly used in SQL commands. The black list of words does not contain all SQL keywords (it would be unreasonable to not allow a word like “Share” or “Year”), because of that, the list is not really known. Currently we know that the word “Hav ing” (No space between those two words) does not work. If you find yourself running into a 403 error when you try to save changes on a page, look up the SQL keywords and see if your text contains any of them. The server is just very cautious as we have over 100 people with editing powers and really do not want to deal with a real attack on the system.

If you find yourself hitting a wall because you can't seem to get the wiki to accept an edit, shoot me a message and we can sort it out. I'm currently looking into a way of creating a list of safe words for the server so that there is still security but we can use words like "having".

But regardless, enjoy the new wiki! Create pages, add characters, ask questions and have fun with it, it's been a long time coming and has been fun to setup!
