I hope they are temporary. Most attempts to click "Update/Create Sensor page" or even "Edit facts" produce an error message along the lines of "No such special page". http://familypedia.wikia.com/wiki/Special:EditData/Children/Joop_van_Meerveld_%281936-2009%29 is in trouble, and the article didn't convert to a facts page as it should have. — Robin Patterson (Talk) 13:10, March 24, 2010 (UTC)

I filled out the form to create Moses Austin (c1802-1890) and when I hit save the only thing saved was sex, not even his first, last, and short names. When I go to edit the page and re-enter this information and press save, none of the information is saved. When I try to create a sensor page I am told that given name, surname, and short name cannot be blank. I have no choice but to suspend editing. A big problem indeed!

Yes, discussed elsewhere too. Updated version of Semantic Forms has replaced Special:AddData and Special:EditData with Special:FormEdit. Until we can track it to source and change them, you can manually change them any time you see them in your address bar. No guarantee that all will be well, though, because there seem to be other changes we haven't fathomed. — Robin Patterson (Talk) 12:45, March 29, 2010 (UTC)
