Yeah, these are all a big issue that I don't know how to fix. It will be tricky. 

The file page now works after I changed its content and removed the probably problematic character ı. Now only this old revision of the page is inaccessible: https://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php?title=File:Marc_Simonetti_rich_lands_and_a_keepII.jpg&oldid=228500

Maybe this will fix the category tree too?

It may be useful to delete this problematic revision completely?

Yes, I think in the short term the best fix is to find error pages and then recreate them as new. It should work then.

I'd consider this semi-canon, but from page 16 of The Official Game of Thrones Cookbook, the Maester Alton presents a brief biography:

Quote

I was born in a time of peace, the only son of Ben Beesbury, Lord of Honeyholt...

But late in the reign of King Aegon V, the harvests were bountiful and summers long, and there was litle need for famed warriors. Eventually.... I arrived at the realization that I was not suited for a warrior's life. My accomplishments would be with the quill...

I resolved to travel to the Citadel and forge my chain, despite the protestations of my father who had no other son to inherit lands and title, which instead passed to my cousin Warryn upon his death.

I'm guessing they cleared these details with GRRM, but without confirmation, yeah, semi-canon.

This finally brings some order into the Beesbury family tree. I think there was no other family with so many family members (8) without a single known relation between them. Well, the Green Ronin Campaign Guide says that Alys, Beoni and Jeyne are sisters, but we couldn't verify that the information came from GRRM. 

Looking at the birth dates of Jeyne's and Beoni's children, they seem to be close in age, born in the mid or late 260ies. Assuming, Ben was born around 215 AC, his younger brother around 220 AC, and Warryn around 245 AC, the Beesbury women could easily be his daughters.

It would be nice to have confirmation so we can connect the dots correctly. Apart from the Beesburys, the Cranes are also all over the place. I wonder if there is a story behind the double Florent-Crane marriages.

I have a doubt regarding how to list the titles of the free companies leaders, and how to name a category for them.

In the itself mostly refers to each of them as either "commander" or "captain". However, the Appendix lists the Tattered Prince as captain and founder and the rest (Brown Ben, Daario, Gylo Rhegan, Bloodbeard) as both captains and commanders.

A heads up for wiki editors:

 

With the beginning of HotD, traffic may again go crazy. This new server that hosts the wiki is the most powerful server we've ever had, with a perfectly tuned MySQL and (we think) a pretty well-tuned web server and cache system. 96.5% of all traffic hits cache, which should mean super-rapid responses and low load...

But. But. Every damned season of GoT and then HotD, we ran into the fact that traffic always exceeded our expectations. It may be the case again.

We have one more tool in the arsenal, though, through Cloudflare -- it's not ideal, but we can technically set Cloudflare to cache everything (including full pages) and have _their_ edge servers deal with 99.9% of the traffic. Why is it not ideal? Well, I did not know when we planned this out that Cloudflare's billing system was going to have an extensive outage, and that they would not be able to change our subscription plan until the current plan ran out in November.

Why does this matter? With the plan we had intended to use, not only could we cache everything, _but_ we could also have anyone who is logged in (i.e. you editors) bypass the cached pages and hit the wiki directly to continue editing freely.

But, we can't do that. So, if the situation with the load on the server is proving too much (yet again), I will go ahead and implement Cache Everything. This should lead to the wiki being served by Cloudflare... but it will serve the same page for everyone, that is, a page where you are _not_ logged in. Moreover, you won't be able to login, or rather not really -- as soon as you visit a page, it'll show you as not logged in.

This means that Sunday and Monday, if we end up implementing this, you won't be able to edit. Write down notes somewhere for whatever editing ideas you have, maybe, and come Tuesday we'll turn off cache everything and you should be able to edit as usual.


That said, fingers crossed that this proves unnecessary. Just figured we'd explain what was happening if we did indeed have to take that step.
