    So there is a problem with the watchlist after all.

    Please tell me it will be fixed soon. Because I hate having to go to each page to see if there are any new edits.

    The recent edits page still works. But I can't really limit that page to just the pages I wanna keep an eye on.

    I've waited over two weeks for it to arrive (and tried submitting it multiple times) and still nothing. Is a manual confirmation possible?

    let's go on an adventure, friend!

    I tried to register for an account on Bulbapedia, but I'm unable to confirm it. Whenever I click or copy-paste the confirmation link in my e-mail, I get a message that says "Invalid confirmation code. The code may have expired."

    *reads back* And it's not just me, it seems, which is kinda good to know.

    Please fix this issue with the watchlist on Bulbapedia as soon as possible. You have no idea how annoying it is to go to each page to see if there are new edits.

    I really am tired of adding items to my watchlist just to have them removed off it the second I add it.

    Sorry if I'm repeating myself, but I really need to use the watchlist the way it's meant to be used.

    Yes, we are intentionally not fixing the problem because we don't know or care how annoying it is.

    Dude, you have to be patient. We are aware of the problem and trying to fix it.
    It's proving to be a difficult issue to repair. We can't just snap our fingers and have it magically fix itself.

    And, several more hours of work later, our tech has just fixed a bug in the Mediawiki software on which the wikis are built. This seems to have fixed the issue.

    I must stress that once we know of an issue, simply telling us that it is an issue is less than helpful. The more information we can get, the faster the bugs can be located. Every time you post here complaining about the issue, our tech stops trying to fix it in order to see if you have anything that might help him. If there's new details in the post, for example Luna informing us above that it is also affecting the talk page messages bar, then it helps locate and speed up the fix. If it is just "This is really annoying, why isn't it fixed yet?" then it doesn't help and, in fact, delays any potential fix. It's also very distracting and annoying for them.

    You're right, I'm sorry about constantly bringing it up.

    Well the watchlist is fixed now. But yeah, I should have been patient.

    503 errors happen when the server is too busy to serve a page request, they can happen on any page and happen randomly from time to time. If you experience a 503 error, just wait for a reasonable while, then you can try to check the page again.

    I think there's some issues with the server. My computer says it's getting busy, and can't load anything else on here.

    I searched Shigeki Morimoto on Bulbapedia and this came up:

    bulbapedia-attack.png

    Here's the diagnostic page:

    blubapedia-diagnostic.png

    It's kind of weird considering these statements:

    What is the current listing status for bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net?
    Site is listed as suspicious - visiting this web site may harm your computer.


    What happened when Google visited this site?
    Of the 339 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 0 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 2012-12-29, and suspicious content was never found on this site within the past 90 days.

    Has this site acted as an intermediary resulting in further distribution of malware?
    Over the past 90 days, bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net did not appear to function as an intermediary for the infection of any sites.


    Has this site hosted malware?

    No, this site has not hosted malicious software over the past 90 days.

    Rest assured, Bulbapedia is safe to browse and edit. The erroneous warning seems to be caused by a fault by Google.

    I figured as much. Is there any way to fix that? It would be unfortunate for casual users to stumble upon the warning.

    There's nothing we can do other than report the erroneous malware flagging to Google, and wait for them to fix the fault. To continue browsing Bulbapedia until then, you'll have to tell your browser to ignore the warning and that Bulbapedia is safe to view.

    Keep in mind, that by ignoring a malware warning, erroneous or not, you're taking your browsing safety entirely into your own hands. For the highest level of safety, wait for the problem to be resolved.
