I can see it on both 2.4 stable and 2.5-dev (Windows nightly from Jan 31). Using Windows XP SP3 & ATI Radeon 4350 (Catalyst 12.6).

Feb 01 22:27:01 <geever>   I mentioned mattn that we should do an update-po, but neither of us had the time for it
*poke* Right now the PO files are four months out of date. Manually updating the msgids whenever you spot an untranslated string only gets you so far…

This wasn’t a terribly serious suggestion anyway — at first, my proposal for teaching the wiki a lesson was going to be somewhat more violent and graphic:-P

While I’m complaining about the wiki, I might as well point out the links for getting .PO[T] files on the translation page still point to the SVN repo. I only found the git one by accident, noticing I can’t translate “Full Campaign” and “Simple Campaign” in the menu and going to search for newer sources. (And to confuse a newbie further, there are two git repos, on Sourceforge & Github — are these mirrors? I’m not a coder and rather clueless in these matters, only digging in repos because I’m translating the game.)

Please kill the wiki spam filter. Pretty please?

Attempts to fix the channel name (#ufo:ai has been closed since forever) on the IRC page are foiled for teh evulz; the error message is as follows:
The text you wanted to save was blocked by the spam filter. This is probably caused by a link to a blacklisted external site.

The following text is what triggered our spam filter: http://

It may come from our trivial URL antispam. It that case, you can use the template {{http}}. Instead of using the wiki syntax, u can use {{http|}} You can use

(note the delightfully disjointed explanation).

The already-existing irc:// link is sufficient to trigger this; replacing this with one to the freenode web page, using the suggested HTTP template, does not help the least.

At any rate, the page is pretty old, containing several dead links and such, so over the course of trying to get around the filter I also fixed a few other things. The full source (since I can’t save it on the wiki, you know):

The developers and quite a lot of players hang around on <tt>#ufoai</tt> channel on [irc://].
