When I try to insert the following line of code

<div  style="position:fixed; bottom:0; right:0">[[Image:Wiki.png|70px]] </div>

into my shoutwiki user page here:

I get the following error message:

This was fixed on the same day by @lewiscawte (kudos!). The mistake was mine, sorry about that; I was trying to stop some cross-wiki spam originating from a certain IP range and as the spam edits (but not account creations) stopped, I figured the code snippet worked as expected, but I didn't test it. Again, apologies for this!
