20:10, 25 May 2020 (UTC) IP ban on three 403s in a short space of time Perform an action that the server deems to be unacceptable (such as using the search box for queries like {{delete}} and repeat three times. The server will IP ban you, since those 403s appear to be a warning. IP bans typically last a day, and I don't think there is a fix for this, but I'm logging it anyway. Anyone can edit this message to further explain the IP banning, however. Further information may in future help track down our issue and potentially resolve it.

2 May 2020 Page content does not update I was creating Language Tutorials/C/HelloWorldExampleProgram, and when I clicked "Show Preview" the contents I had entered before got shown on both the preview and the editing area! I lost all my work due to that. An important note is that I was on a mobile.

09:52, 26 September 2020 (CEST) "This page isn’t working

en.scratch-wiki.info is currently unable to handle this request."

Recent Changes page is constantly giving HTTP 500 errors and I'm unable to view the page at all. This has been happening for the last couple of minutes.

This was due to some technical difficulties encountered with updating MediaWiki to 1.35.1, and those issues have now been resolved.

Some time between 00:38 and 07:30, 24 February 2021 (UTC) 508 Resource Limit Is Reached I tried to go to Necropost#SubForums that Bend the Necroposting Rule and SubForums Where Necroposting exists (the heading was very soon removed).

The message was:

<TITLE> 508 Resource Limit Is Reached</TITLE>
<H1>Resource Limit Is Reached</H1>
The website is temporarily unable to service your request as it exceeded resource limit.
Please try again later.

I found this strange because there was an empty line before the start, because the title began with a ' ' space, and because the line-break between "Limit." and "Please" didn't do anything.

23 March 2021 The requested page title contains invalid characters The link preview feature doesn't work on Set Size to () % (block) and says:

{"batchcomplete":true,"query":{"pages":[{"title":"Set_Size_to_()%25_(block)","invalidreason":"The requested page title contains invalid characters: \"%25\".","invalid":true}]},"limits":{"images":500,"categories":500}}
Mlcreater (talk | contribs) 19:52, 23 March 2021 (UTC)

This is not a server fault, it's a bug in the link preview system (probably due to the percent sign). Unfortunately there isn't much we can do about this, as this is an external tool.

4 April 2021 Completely unable to access site For about a minute, I was completely unable to access anything (i.e. my browser said "Could not connect to en.scratch-wiki.info"). I verified my internet connection was working and I was able to connect with other sites during that time.

6 April 2021, 3:15 PM UTC Extremely high load The server appears to be under extremely high load, with pages loading slowly and some failing with "508 Resource Limit Exceeded". According to "top", there were up to 110 PHP threads running (usually we have in the neighborhood of 20-30).

9 April 2021, 7:20 PM UTC 508 Resource Limit Exceeded The server gave me a 508 Resource Limit Exceeded error, though this went away after about a minute, and a few minutes later there were 10 PHP processes running, which is a pretty low number.

18 January 2022, throughout the day Frequent 503 errors, timeouts, and long loading times

The server often gives a timeout, or takes a very long time (usually more than 30 seconds) to load pages. I guess that it may be because of cPanel or a frequent update on the shared server.

The server takes a very long time (usually more than 30 seconds) to load pages and shows error 404 or ERR_TIMED_OUT.
Purvitekriwal (talk | contribs) 10:43, 18 January 2022 (UTC)

The server did not load at all before it timed out.
