Default Wiki article damaged

I don't know if this was intentional or not but it looks like somebody went to
http://wiki.radioreference.com/index.php/Medevac_(TX)
and reverted it back a few years. This changed the categories, templates and return-to links that were implemented a while back.

It's pretty simple to undo this. See the HISTORY link on the far lett when looking at the article? Click on that, then select the most recent time period that you believe to be correct. Click on Compare; you will then be presented with 2 versions; edit the version you wish, then at the bottom of the article, hit SAVE.

No need for any mod intervention here..Mike

I should have tried that. For some reason I thought that only worked if an admin did it.

Nope anyone can do this. The restriction of an admin only applies to deleting articles - makes it somewhat harder for a spammer - which we've had a few - to come in and do real damage

The automatic link generator doesn't like the ")" character. If you go to the actual Medevac (TX) article, you will find that the article is there.

Ah, this works:
Medevac (TX) - The RadioReference Wiki

Instead of the parenthesis, it is using %28 and %29

Unfortunately this is a long standing issue with the rightmost paren that has never been addressed. Very annoying...Mike

I forgot about the ) problem when I made the original post. I fixed the wiki article in question so no need to continue this thread.
