Yeah, between the Sword Shield games news and Ash's big win, you guys must've got a lot more traffic than usual in the last few weeks.

The site is starting to lag hard again for me. Sometimes I get 503 errors, other times the browser doesn't look the way it's supposed to.

There seems to be some issues with logging in on Bulbapedia, I refresh a page and suddenly I'm logged out.

Sprites and other small images are failing to load on Bulbapedia, and it also seems that editing isn't possible either for some reason.

Bulbapedia is currently locked for editing as it undergoes a major upgrade. This may take days.

Hopefully it won't take too many days. The weekend always sees a large surge of new Pokémon episode info, especially during Sunday. What is the update going to add to the site?

The current version of MediaWiki is 1.29, which hasn't had any security/maintenance fixes since September 2018. At the moment, the plan is to update to 1.31.

I hope the updates don't take too long, I understand they're important but I enjoy editing Bulbapedia and helping with the anime sections

The wiki seems frozen in time for me.

It's stuck at 5 hours ago, edits-wise.

And the Staff Ranks are broken, in the "Unable to load image" kind of way.

Is this part of the current round of glitches, a cache error, or.....

We are currently performing some much-needed site upgrades.

As a result:
- Pages can not be edited
- Images may not be appearing
- Other site features may not work properly

We do not currently have a time frame for completion, but thank you for your patience and understanding.

Thanks for the clarification.

I was wondering why I couldn't see new stuff.

Some of the links overall are not working or are taking a long time to load, including in email alerts.
