Hey Tephra, not sure you know but I face some editing problem. When I go to normal edit mode, it load perpetually and shows a clone page below. Of course I can edit in classic editor but what cause the Visual editor to go wrong?
Ah, I see you switched to message walls. That is more convenient for me, since I don't get notifications if you edit your own talk page, and when I am managing 67 wikis, I can forget to check back on talk pages. Like, for example, our template discussion, which I completely forgot about. At least you figured out how to solve it anyway.
You should probably get a new background, as it greatly improves the wiki's appeal. This might be a good choice.
