What has been going on with the wikia the past 24ish hours. I've been logged in and out numerous times, been unable to create pages or upload images for hours at a time and received read only notifications practically every time I hit the edit button, although it does eventually allow me to edit the pages. Also when I went to post this the first time it came up with an error message
Is anyone else experiencing this, and when will it be resolved?
My logging in and out has stopped since yesterday, but pages I visit keep going back to the way they were yesterday, including my avatar. I'm also getting this main datacenter message at times when I try to edit. Also when I try to post messages, it'll say "There was an error. Copy your work then try again later".
Last night neither Wiki Activity or Recent Changes would load for me...they finally did but it took a really long time, but everything else was loading okay. I haven't tried editing since these changes some I'm not sure how broken that is right now.
As mentioned on the blog post comments (and in replies to users who sent us tickets about this issue), the team have been working on this issue as a priority.
It has been a little complex to nail down - only affecting some users some of the time - but we've been making server tweaks that should be improving matters. The issue appears to be that some requests have been misdirected to servers that don't accept updates (hence errors on attempting to submit changes), which we've been working on resolving.
Apologies for the problems - it's certainly annoying to be prevented from editing. If you're still seeing issues, please let us know via Special:Contact/bug!
Problems have returned for me too. Every time I go to save an edit, I get the session timed out thing, even if I have only been on that page for a matter of seconds. Also I get 'read only' notifications on every fourth or fifth edit.
