The error message: (exactly as it appears)

Unable to write to file "$1": file exists

Lately, there have been file moving errors. It moves the the text on the page but not the image part and is not logged.

I contacted Wikia about it a month ago and they said it's a bug in the current MediaWiki version.

Hello Evil1888.

I'm sorry, but this is a known bug in the version of MediaWiki we are running.

It cant be currently fixed.

The only solution is to reupload the images to the wiki.

Happy Editing,

Just remember, when you try to move a file and that happens, go to the page you were trying to move it to and the text of page should be there, copy it and paste it back to the former File: page. And tag the page you were trying to move to with {{D|Move error}}.

Not much else to do than that though.

This is not a proposal, it is more of a public service announcement.

Comment - It is with great courage that we gather here today. We're not only fighting for ourselves, but for those that will follow in our footsteps. Today will no longer be known as the day we fought for independence, no... this shall be the day the Earth fought back and said we're not going down without a fight.
