    I get this too, but on Chrome. And refreshing the page seems to log me back in for Bulbapedia (although I manually need to do it for Bulbanews; when I try to log into the Archives, it acts as if it were successful but I'm not logged in anymore as soon as I leave the login successful page, although this is presumably due to the database lock). It doesn't affect other websites or even the forums, and I never had these kind of issues before the server maintenance, so I doubt it is my browser.

    @SnorlaxMonster: Try clearing your Bulbagarden-related cookies. Stale cookies from the old system don't work in the new system.

    I'm getting the same problem, but it's not happening for any other websites, including the forums, so I'm fairly certain it's not my browser. (Also, it wasn't a problem before and I haven't changed any settings) Could it be that some of the bulbapedia cookies are set to expire at the end of the session? I never checked what they were before, so I don't know if that's changed.
    Thanks Jo The Marten for the avatar.

    I cleared all cookies. Bulbapedia/Archives still doesn't remember me. Something's off...

    Compare the behaviour with Wikipedia. If Wikipedia is also forgetting you after a few hours, then there's nothing we can do, since we're using the same software.

    I have a question about the sprites and DW art of the toxic orb and life orb

    Life Orb
    Sprites | DW Art

    Toxic Orb
    Sprite | DW Art

    As far as I can tell, one of these are switched, or has the Dream World switched them around accidentally?

    I must've swapped them accidentally when uploading. On the Dream World site, the one with two rings is the Life Orb, and the one with three dark spots is the Toxic Orb.

    *hand raise*

    Would it be possible to make additions to the trainer list template(s) (or revamped them entirely to make it look more sooth than just tacking on additional information at the end)? Importantly are locations. Adding them was "fun," but it's probably best done with its own proper cell column instead of on whichever bit is convenient (name if ordinary trainer, class if said character has an article [ie Kiyo]). Since all routes are now forever region named, using the regional link codes (ka, jo, si) to go from "si=213" to get "[[Sinnoh Route 213|Route 213]]" can't be impossible, parameter-wise.

    A second addition would be, hopefully, to the header. We should be notating in those articles how much money a trainer gets per opponent's level, and I figure an additional parameter "|d=" or something to get "Winnings (32)" would be helpful, instead of making some separate table (or a separate table [edit: or whole article? since no money-per-level is static from game-to-game (not even generations)], too; just as long as the money-per is also somewhere on the trainer table as well).

    Please? *doe eyes*

    As soon as we can get it stable to be reliably forward-facing. We've been working to make sure it all goes well when we re-open it, since the reconfiguration changed some things with respect to the Archives.

    i wasnt around when these templates were first instituted, but why in the all knowing hell did we not put in the trainer locations? it seems awfully pointless to list their name, and team, and not have where they are located. yes, i know that if you click on their name it sends you to where they are, but thats just pointless. theres plenty of room in the templates to list the actual location (besides, hovering over a name just for their location is silly).

    Hindsight is 20/20. List what's important and who's gonna go looking for a location if in theory you don't already know which trainer you're looking up?

    All locations are currently manually inserted into the templates over the names. It wasn't always like that.

    What about a record of a trainer winning or losing a battle?

    Something like this:
    For the trainer Ash

    | Result | Opponent | Episode |
    | Draw | Morrison | Less is Morrison. |
    | Lose | Tobias | The Semi-Final Frontier! |
    | Win | Barry | Barry's Busting Out All-Over |
