Have you ever noticed that the SRK Wiki goes down randomly for large stretches of time, or is it just me? For years now I have used the wiki and every so often, it just won’t let me connect. Does everyone experience this, and if so, could a mod explain to me why?
It seems strange to me that the SRK site itself would be fine but the wiki would be down, unless they are on separate servers… and I would guess a purely (well, mostly) text-based wiki would be easier to maintain than the main site, but then again, I don’t know much about networking.
Is it a maintenance thing, or what? :wonder:
PS: I bring this up finally because it’s down for me right now, and has been for at least 24 hours…
This clearly isn’t a simple maintenance hiccup or something of that nature. 11 solid days of downtown is pretty insane for any website, and as I’ve stated, this has happened many times over the years. I can’t recall the last time it was down for THIS long, but it definitely occurs more often than not.
I have pinged Mr. Wizard as suggested, I’ll let you know if I get a response…
Would it not be possible to have an alternate backup of the wiki that can be worked on without causing downtime…? Can you provide any insight as to why this occurs fairly frequently, and what, if anything, the SRK community can do to help (besides donate boatloads of cash… :wonder:)?
