    It's Christmas and editing of Bulbapedia is still locked because of the USUM-related server stress! Hurry up and unlock editing of Bulbapedia and let the servers allow!

    This issue has already swelled into ridiculous proportions. Even the admins aren't flawless, so errors keep slipping in every now and then, and not being able to fix them is honestly painful to watch. Please, open the site before the year changes to avoid making this even more ridiculous than it already is!

    At least, I could create my own account. But, then, editing is blocked. (n)

    Please only make comments to alert staff of any issues there are with the site, not complaining about the wiki being locked. Complaining about it won't make it get unlocked any faster.

    Now that the lock is over, a "real" site issue is that the search engine is still not working at 100% as not only does it not always work (forcing me to reload the page, or move to a new page), not everything is being presented on it either as I try to go to the Skull and Armor Fossil page, but it is not showing up on the search engine.

    On my mobile, if I view Bulbapedia while logged out, a rather large advert appears on the bottom right corner of the page.

    I'm also having visual troubles while using a mobile device. I get adverts popping up even while I'm logged in, too.

    I can confirm that I'm getting ads while logged in on mobile. The site is unresponsive to the point of unusable as well

    I don't have an account and have ad block, but somehow these annoying ads bypass it and get in a way and annoying. It also takes up 50% of the page, making the information of the page squished and crowded.

    Re: Bulbapedia site issues thread
    I may be doing this wrong, but I can't figure out how to edit my profile page. When I click on it all it says is this:

    Those were placed there by the ad providers, they've intentionally made them unblockable by adblock. There's noting we can do about it.

    You have to be autoconfirmed to be able to make your userpage. To be autoconfirmed, you have to be a user for some time and have made a certain amount of edits to the mainspace.

    I'm continuing to be unable to use sorting functions at all, which is the same problem Mijzelffan shared in this post:
    Per this talk page, others seem to also be having this issue depending on their browser. This issue has been ongoing since sometime during the two-month editing lockdown late last year.

    If possible, could the staff at least let us know whether they're aware of the problem, and whether there are any plans to address it?

    Yes. I'm sorry, we've probably heard about it a dozen times and answered it several of those; but the only place at the moment I'm sure we have is Discord, so I'm sorry that it's gone unremarked other places.

    Whenever I'm using Bulbapedia while logged in on my mobile device, pages tend to have big blank white spaces where an advert is obviously supposed to appear, instead of the big white space not being there at all like it should be. This makes some pages just unpleasant to look at.
