• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Apparently the new database upgrade changed whatever happens when you click on the wiki tab (what used to be the collaboration link) on a county or database entry.
I tried to find a wiki page I edited yesterday and it was gone. The wiki tab linked to a new blank wiki page. I checked a few other database pages where I knew there was a wiki article and the same thing happened.
I just wanted to point this out in case none of the admins noticed it.

The new wiki tab leaves off the two letter state abbreviation in parentheses that the wiki pages had.
The first one I found was Fort Sill Scanner Frequencies and Radio Frequency Reference
I fixed it by redirecting it to the old wiki page, but I don't know if that was a good idea.

Go here Military & National Guard Scanner Frequencies and Radio Frequency Reference
and click the wiki link. It creates a blank page.
It used to link to Military & National Guard Palo Pinto County (TX) - The RadioReference Wiki

I've already reported this. What has happened is that a lot of stuff the database is now referencing resulted in a botched wiki link - and the fix is a little sloppy in my not so humble opinion - we will likely have to install redirects where necessary.

Specifically what page(s) are lost? Get a list together so Bob, Ben and I can repair the damage. That goes for EVERYONE, not just ND5Y. The more examples we can throw out there, the more likely the problem can be addressed.

best regards..Mike

It looks like it's affecting every agency page that's underneath a county (businesses, airports, etc.). Any wiki link on those database pages that used to end in "Random County (ST)" now just ends in "Random County."

I emailed Lindsay to see if this is something he can correct on the DB side or if we will have to move those affected pages....

Folks, we've issued a fix for this. We accidentally left off the state code in parentheses at the end of the link. Easy fix, no worries.
