Reporting vandalism/Rant in the wiki

Foobar2000 Wiki

it's in the FAQ close to the bottom of the page

Code: [Select]
Q: How will PREGAP entries in Cue Sheets be taken into account, i. e. how will they be played as appropriately lengthed silence?

A: I don't know, but I'm banned from Hydrogenaudio forums, because they don't like my email providers. I don't want to pay for a cute email adress just to ask this one question, so sorry for misusing this wiki. Please replace this lamentation by a real answer. Or please could on of the adepts please forward this question to the foobar2000 forum. I am wondering, but I'm allowed to search this forum, so this Faq could be deleted, in particular because I think this isn't really a Faq. Alternatively hints are welcome, which free email-providers are accepted by hydrogenaudio forums. I think this is a Faq.
Who are you and how did you get in here ?

I thought it was pretty funny someone actually bothered to correct the spelling of his rant in the wiki

Thanks for the report, it's been taken care of. I don't know which email address he tried to use. Maybe he should ask the thousands of users that managed to register on HA how they did it.

I thought it was a noob, but now the wiki search is giving me:
[span style='font-size:8pt;line-height:100%']
Code: [Select]
Database error
From Hydrogenaudio Knowledgebase
For query "pregap"
A database query syntax error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software. The last attempted database query was:

   SELECT cur_id, cur_namespace, cur_title, cur_text FROM `cur`,`searchindex` WHERE cur_id=si_page AND ( (MATCH (si_title) AGAINST ('pregap')) ) AND cur_namespace IN (0) LIMIT 0,20

from within function "". MySQL returned error "1016: Can't open file: 'searchindex.MYI' (errno: 145) (localhost)".
[/span]

hope thats routine

Yes. the wiki is malfunctioning at the moment.
I will try to fix it when I get back home sunday/monday.

The search is broken and you get an error when updating a page eventhough it seems to work.

Most ISPs do grant their users free email address's as a part of the package, some require that you pay extra to get email functionality. Instead of paying extra I would guess most people would sign up to use one of those free email providers that HA have banned.

It's possible (albeit unlikely, admittedly) that they're not lying.
