Whenever I open any article while being signed in, I get this error and article is not shown.

[d4ac3dd6e0f8f3e2ba271ff0] /wiki/Geocentrism_and_the_Quran ParseError from line 119 of /var/www/mediawiki-1.31.0/extensions/FlaggedRevs/backend/FRUserActivity.php: syntax error, unexpected ')', expecting ';'

and therefore can't do anything

I see the same thing now when I look at any page except user pages when I'm signed in (this is the first time I've logged in for a few weeks). I can't do anything with the pages or with pending edits. I think the site owners must have changed something in the FRUserActivity file on the server. I will try to contact them.
I also notice that people who do not have accounts can now make pending changes. I guess this was also done by the site owners. I don't know if that's a deliberate change (perhaps in response to criticism of the lock down), but I think it's a bad idea at this stage when we don't have people available to monitor such edits.
It'll be good eventually to restore the ability of anyone to point out problems that we can later confirm and correct, but there will also be flawed apologetics and even pure vandalism like to the Neil Armstrong page today. We need people who have the time and willingness to monitor such IP address pending edits because they will just build up as a huge backlog otherwise and some will get accidentally approved without validation when we make our own edits. So I'll also suggest they reverse this change for the time being. Lightyears (talk) 21:55, 22 July 2018 (UTC)
It's all fixed now. The IP address editing rights were just an unintended change during technical updates and improvements. They still plan to build up a team to improve the site, do more translations etc.Lightyears (talk) 21:44, 23 July 2018 (UTC)
I noticed, that it works. I hope they make the translations. Maybe if they let some people in, they would find someone. Prekladator (talk) 06:07, 24 July 2018 (UTC)
