Bulbawiki site issues thread

So that we don't need to create more threads and topics on the main page, report your problems here.

Current known issues are

*Logging in/out randomly
*Loss of session data
*503/504 errors

To administrators- there are session issues that occur exclusively while performing administrative actions (such as protecting pages, deleting etc.) These issues aren't much different from the ones above, so there is no need to report.
Re: Bulbapedia site issues thread

I can't get Bulbapedia to come up. I keep on getting an error like this:

Bulbagarden RPGwiki has a problem

Sorry! This site is experiencing technical difficulties.
Try waiting a few minutes and reloading.

(Can't contact the database server: Access denied for user 'themozz_rpgwiki'@'localhost' (using password: YES) (localhost))

But I need the main images for Squirtle and Pidgey and attack info up to level 15.
Re: Bulbapedia site issues thread

Also, WTF is "Bulbapedia RPG Wiki". The logo is different. And when the main page worked for a second, the Main Page was different, smaller. I believe it's some new project. But why on Bulbapedia's page? I think someone's messing with Bulbapedia coding...
Re: Bulbapedia site issues thread

This is most likely to do with the software update we've just had. Unfortunately, all the people who know stuff and can do stuff have gone to bed, so you're going to have to wait it out.

It's the same on Archives and News, btw. Just in case anyone cared to wonder.

Maxim: RPGwiki is the long forgotten fourth wiki TTE mentioned a while back in a thread about Overgrow. It was closed down aaages ago and I'm not 100% sure of its function, but it appears to be some kind of metagame/fanon thing.

There was an error, actually, caused by Zhen rewriting the configuration for RPGwiki. Don't understand? Don't ask. If it still isn't working for anyone, your page is most likely cached and it will restore in time.
Re: Bulbapedia site issues thread

Ever since account creation was reopened, I noticed that I haven't gotten anymore problems with random logging in/out or loss of session data. Does anybody have the same idea?
Re: Bulbapedia site issues thread

I still have logging in and out problems. Gets rather annoying.
Re: Bulbapedia site issues thread

If every admin on this site doesn't know my probs I need to bitch louder! :pPPP

It logs me out almost as soon as I log in!
Re: Bulbapedia site issues thread

It appears that one of our memcache services died. I have restarted it - should be fine now.
Re: Bulbapedia site issues thread

The only problem I find on Bulbapedia is great amount of Generation I and II Pokemon have their game location in HEARTGOLD and SOULSILVER saying "Trade". Am I going to assume that in order to get these Pokemon I have to trade from another game.
Here is a list of Pokemon with "Trade" for their location (these were wild Pokemon in Gold and Silver):
Weedle, Kakuna, Beedrill, Pidgeotto, Spearow, Ekans, Arbok, Golbat, Gloom, Venonat, Dugtrio, Psyduck, Golduck, Mankey, Primeape, Growlithe, Poliwag, Poliwhirl, Kadabra, Machop, Machoke, Weepinbell, Tentacool, Tentacruel, Graveler, Ponyta, Magnemite, Doduo, Seel, Grimer, Muk, Shellder, Krabby, Voltorb, Electrode, Cubone, Marowak, Lickitung, Rhyhorn, Kangaskhan, Horsea, Seadra, Goldeen, Seaking, Staryu, Mr. Mime, Pinsir, Magikarp, Noctowl, Lanturn, Natu, Flaafy, Skiploom, Sunkern, Quagsire, Girafarig, Gligar, Snubbull, Qwilfish, Shuckle, Teddiursa, Ursaring, Delibird, Phanpy, Donphan

It would've been better if they put down question marks instead of "Trade" if Bulbapedia don't know where they will be. But let's assume they are at the same place.
Re: Bulbapedia site issues thread

No assuming. However, an Unknown might be more appropriate.
Re: Bulbapedia site issues thread

You don't get a Pokemon by question marking it into your game.

If it isn't in it, you trade.
Re: Bulbapedia site issues thread

Some of the Pokemon that say "Trade" for their HEARTGOLD and SOULSILVER location like Teddiursa and Phanpy are placed in their version-exclusive list. How can it be version-exclusive if you need to trade from another game.
Re: Bulbapedia site issues thread

Because it's a wiki and anyone can edit, so it screws up sometimes.

If you see something's wrong with it, feel free to fix it. This thread is more for glitches and the like than content issues.
Re: Bulbapedia site issues thread

It defaults to trade for all of them if nothing's entered. All it means is that no one's entered them in yet. If you find the HGSS location, then put it in yourself, thanks.
