Forums: Admin Central Index Technical Help Wiki not loading properly

Hi there! Um - I've noticed that in that day or two, the elderscrolls wiki is loading extremely slowly for myself. Some other users, particularly those outside of the US, are noticing the same problem. People INSIDE the US seem to be able to access it (Although this could be entirely unrelated to the problem). Other wikis are loading normally, but for some reason, the elder scrolls wiki occasionally doesn't load. Ive gone through everything that I can think of - deleting history, caches, cookies, even tried reinstalling the browser (and using a different browser altogether, too), but still get this problem. Others have reported that they are having trouble accessing the wiki as well. Any suggestions as to what I can do? It would be greatly appreciated!

(An aside: for whatever reason, it comes and goes, sometimes I am able to edit fine, others - it just doesn't load at all :( TimeoinSay G'DayView my work 01:46, February 20, 2012 (UTC)

Me too! (in US) For a while today, the wiki went totally down! I checked and it confirmed that it wasn't just me. I'm tagging staff needed and contacting them directly because it is so important. Iggyvolz 03:50, February 20, 2012 (UTC)
Hi, we've had a few issues that seem to have disappeared for most users who have reported this issue. Can you please check if this is still happening for you? If this happens again (or is continuing to happen), please let us know through Special:Contact so we can collect all the information. Cheers, grunny@fandom:~$ 04:15, February 20, 2012 (UTC)
I did not notice the problem. Try loading the url: in another browser Sam Wang 04:53, February 20, 2012 (UTC)
I tried that. It worked for a few minutes originally, then stopped working on Chrome as well. It appears to be working again now, but if it happens, I'll contact via the contact page :) TimeoinSay G'DayView my work 14:09, February 20, 2012 (UTC)
it could be that thyere are to many elements to the page A.r.s.h. i am every where but no where at the same time 17:57, February 20, 2012 (UTC)
My first thought, too, but this was occurring on multiple pages, including pages such as Special:SpecialPages TimeoinSay G'DayView my work 16:24, February 21, 2012 (UTC)
Maybe it's just loads and loads of custom CSS and the like?

The total size of loaded files for Elderscrolls Wiki is not much different from any other major Wikia wiki. It would not cause a significant difference. --Gardimuer { ʈalk } 16:54, March 29, 2012 (UTC)
