    Default Bulbapedia not working?

    Okay, so I'm trying to access a page on Bulbapedia. The main page loads, but when I try to go to another page, I get a "503 Service Unavailable" page. WTF?

    And I know for a fact that this isn't due to the wiki being locked, as I was still able to access other pages for awhile after this went in effect. If it's relevant at all, I was trying to use the search function to get to the Koga page (I'm not sure if I remember exactly what levels his Pokemon are in FR/LG version and he's my next gym battle in LG).

    Performance issues; also, wrong section as Bulbawikis have their own section here and a problem thread in it. Try your luck tomorrow.

    I don't have a Bulbapedia account though. But thanks.

    ... oi vey. Soul didn't mean you were on the wrong part of the site, rather the wrong part of the forum. Go back on to the main forum page and scroll down till you're past all of the RPG sections, and you'll find the Bulbawiki section (aka the place to post complaints, comments, queries, concerns, rants, et cetera regarding the Bulbawiki network [aka Bulbapedia, Bulbanews, Archives]). Alternatively, use this link.

    I noticed that if you refresh the page a few times, it will load. However, I noticed that it doesn't work, all the time.

    Best to refrain from doing that. That's just making the strain worse.

    Does it say something like "Guru meditation"? If it does, then it's also happened to me many times. At the very beggining I realised that the error happened almost exclusively when my Internet connection was low, so, I just needed to keep restarting my router until it got back to normal. I don't know if that's your case, but it's worth trying.

    Don't restart your router for Bulbapedia, jesus.

    Just wait for it to get back to normal. It's been like that for the past 5 years and it will continue to be like that.

    Yeah, guru mediation is on Bulbapedia's end, not yours. Restarting your router won't do anything that waiting and refreshing won't.
