    Bulbapedia has been reopened for public viewing (but not editing) as a short test. If we encounter problems within the next half hour, it'll be closed down again until we locate the issue.

    We appear to have a successful test. Bulbapedia will remain up and active for viewing until tomorrow morning my time, unless something happens between now and then. After I wake up, we'll see what we can do.

    If the server crashes, please write down exactly what you were doing at the time, and either post it in this thread following the server rebooting, or email it to archaic *DOT* mukashi *AT* gmail *DOT* com if the server doesn't come back up, as you might have accidentally stumbled on whatever code it is that's causing the server to chuck a hissy fit.

    Had to take 'pedia down again for a short while as I run a few maintenance things to deal with issues that cropped up on the forums and wiki with specific threads and pages not being accessible, etc. Easily fixed, but they put some load on the server, so I don't want the wiki making the job any longer or harder than it'll have to be anyway.

    'pedia back up and accessible as a test. Let's see how it handles higher load periods.

    Because the 'pedia was crashing the server, and we had to try and identify exactly what the issue was. We think we've got it now, so expect it back open for editing within the next hour or two.

    Had another problem with the server, techs are trying to figure things out. Bulbapedia is down again while they're fixing the databases (which get a little wonky during a reboot with our current setup, though no data is lost), and will be back up reasonably shortly.

    Well this sucks, I hope this mess is resolved soon. Serebii.net has been slow ever since platinum came out (no surprise).

    Oh yeah, this is my first post after lurking here for 2 years.

    Yay for Google caching, I can still get anything I want for probably longer than it will take to fix the conflict. :)

    couldnt we at least put up a message saying we are down, rather than just "403 Forbidden"

    surely, it would let people know that its only temporary.

    tor is "The Onion Router"
    I'm pretty sure it's a programme that basically lets you hide behind loads of proxies, like the layers of an onion.
    Probably blocked to prevent anonymous vandalism.

    No idea why you're getting it though =/

    And yay for Google Cache!
