yep, simply edit the Message and it should work. However, if you take a

[[Special:Upload]] remains intact, unchanged. This happened on Wargaming
Wiki - http://wiki.wargaming.net
need probably to create an account there to check this yourself. But
you can see also this short video I've recorded, which is demonstrating
the issue: http://www53.zippyshare.com/v/qSVnbq9c/file.html

Can someone tell me what's wrong here and how it can be debugged?
Thank you in advance.
