fenyx4; The "View Source" button literally just changes the display text. The link still appends "&action=edit", and therefore leads to the edit page when it's unprotected. It's not unique to the vector skin, all the other skins are the same - it's just how mediawiki works.
Tiddlywinks; If you...
This thread is for issues with the wikis. For forum issues, the help desk, a subforum if the Garden Grotto, is the place to put it so that the people that can deal with it will see it.
It appears that the issues have already been mentioned (and hopefully resolved) there.
Re: Bulbapedia site issues thread
That message shows up when there is too much load on the server. If you get it, please give it a few minutes before you try again. Sitting there refreshing until it loads just makes the problem worse.
And, several more hours of work later, our tech has just fixed a bug in the Mediawiki software on which the wikis are built. This seems to have fixed the issue.
I must stress that once we know of an issue, simply telling us that it is an issue is less than helpful. The more information we can...
There seems to be an issue with the watchlists. The "mark all pages visited" button isn't working either. I imagine they're both caused by the same fault, but I don't yet know what that is. Likely an issue with updating the list in the database, as new edits are appearing on them, but visits...

Is it giving an error message when you try and resend? If not, then it's likely gone through. Emails, despite popular thought, aren't actually an instant system. There can be a significant amount of lag. Try giving it some time.
A bug is preventing the email system from working properly, although I have heard that a few people have managed to eventually confirm their emails, so it might not be fully broken. We're trying to get the bug fixed. I can tell you that it is definitely not a problem with your email address...
The code you were using (trying to use) to have a youtube video is killing the page. You can go in and edit it by editing any other page and changing the title ion the URL. Remove that line of code right down near the bottom along with anything else you want to do.
I'm told that we aren't going to be able to fix it unless we can reproduce it to figure out what's causing it. Which is a problem given its only happening intermittently. So to improve our chances of getting the info we need, I'd like to ask that anyone who gets that specific block message...
