I think the trial has been a success! It's safe to say the trial is now over, and the Wiki is a permanent part of Army.ca. Many thanks to all those who have contributed so much to the Wiki... your time is appreciated by very many!


Cheers
Mike

I have tried to use the "Recent changes" feature a number of times tonight and get "The page cannot be displayed" message.  Do we have a problem?

A database query syntax error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software. The last attempted database query was:

    (SQL query hidden)

from within function "LinksUpdate::getExistingInterlangs". MySQL returned error "1146: Table 'wikidb.army_langlinks' doesn't exist (localhost)".

There is an error message showing up after editing - I am getting this on my own website using mediawiki also.  It happens when you hit "submit" on an edit. The edit does go through, but the message still comes up.  Weird. I'm having the problem on my own site looked at. Thought you might like to know here as well.

Thanks guys... I think I've fixed both of those issues. It would seem that when I upgraded the Wiki tonight the new database schema was not updated as well. Michael, in case it helps you, I had to source the mediawiki/maintenance/mysql5/tables.sql file to have the new tables created. It would not recreate older tables, so any field updates will still be missed, but this seems to have made the error go away.

Note: be sure to replace /*$wgDBprefix*/ with your actual table prefix if you do this.


Cheers
Mike

Thanks Mike - I have been unable to upload images also, so hopefully this will fix my condition too.

That looks like a place that could answer a lot of question filled first posts.
Since it has a recruiting section (http://army.ca/wiki/index.php/Recruiting), I've added a link to the Wiki in the recruiting FAQ on the board.  If you have a favourite recruiting question to answer, you can add the information to the Wiki.

Thanks! And thanks for your patience tracking down the login issue. We now know that any forum username with a _ in it will not be able to properly log in to the Wiki.

At any rate, it looks like the Wiki has been a busy place again the last couple of days. My gratitute to all those who have contributed.

Mike,

I was just poking around the Wiki pages, and I must say, you guys have done a superb job organizing it. The recruiting pages should be linked from one of the FAQs as they contain pretty much any required reading. Keep up the good work with the site, just gets better and better.

Cheers,

Patrick

It has been done.

Feel free to recommend any other FAQ that you feel it fits into (because these are the only two I know to include a wiki link)

Hey guys,

I'ld like to start a Communicator Research Operator (291) career wiki page, but it would be great if there could be a more generic page for BMQ/SQ than the current Career Progression for a Reserve NCM (for example) since uses the Infantry as an example, could we make it more generic (e.g. what QL3, QL5, etc. goals are in general) so each career wiki page could link back to that generic BMQ/SQ page, reducing conflicting data. Then each career page would explain the career opportunities, what's going to be learned in QL3, QL5, etc. and the advanced/specialty courses.

(I realize this thread is old, and do not know if the wiki is even an active resource anymore, hope it is though!)

Maybe we could even create a standard/template for career pages?

There's going to be very little that can be put on a 291 career page, with all of the tasks you would want to list requiring secret or higher to learn about. There's a reason why the Recruiting Center doesn't carry a lot of info on the 291 trade, its not open source.

Several years ago, I uploaded this picture to the site: 
Map_Symbols.jpg


It is not particularly great resolution and you cannot grab an individual map symbol to use for your own purposes.  So, the new and improved map symbols aid is under development here: http://army.ca/wiki/index.php/NATO_Map_Symbols
The files can also be viewed here: http://army.ca/wiki/index.php/Category:Military_Map_Symbols

Not everything from the old picture is currently available on the wiki, but I will slowly work towards it.
