After a few days of 'pedia working mostly fine, it's back to error 503 central...

the Archives are also having the same problem...

'pedia seems to be working relatively fine right now, except that the issue with pictures not loading, or only loading after multiple refreshes continues to persist, which makes me think that the Archives are currently not or barely functioning at all.

I can say for sure this seems to be a fluctuating problem, with the main issue that the server is not 100% and even if it does work for a while, the server goes down again. I'd say this requires looking for a more permanent solution to help maintain the server's stability.

Considering the front page of the archives seems to be fluctuating between the html being broken and unbroken I'd say that's a fairly good guess.

Edit: Correction, ALL pages of the archive are doing this.

It's a problem on my Laptop as well.

Just a void of blankness on any page in the "Bulbapedia:" space.

Normal pages work fine, so I assume it's a temporary glitch.

I'm having the same problem as well. You know it's bad when PokeRaf points it out:


I honestly don't know what else to say. It's sad that Bulbapedia is continuing to have these problems.
Mobile devices aren't affected by this issue.
