 Hi can anyone point me to a write up of the the test plan for this
 morning's experiment on Wikipedia? Having been logged off about ten times
 I've worked out that you get logged out the first two times you change page.

 It will be interesting to see how many editors revert to IP editing.

I haven't been logged out, but very few of my edits are saving first
time -- I keep getting the session expired message, even when I've
only been on the page for a minute or so.  And editing has been
painfully slow.

Lots of discussion about it at the PUMP --

It seems to have started for some people on April 10th. I've been
noticing the slow speed for a couple of days, and since yesterday the
difficulty saving.

Erm, not any experiment I know of! I believe it's a server issue, but I'll
wait for ops to chime in.

Not planned perhaps, but I wish it were.  It would be fantastically
great for us to start serious experiments of all sorts for ten minutes
here and there, to begin to understand the subtle dynamics of
contribution.

Our memcached cluster (which handles session information) has been
experiencing stability issues in the last few weeks. Over the weekend,
we rebooted all memcached boxes to deal with a particular kernel
issue. Unfortunately there's no graceful failover, which caused
session issues to be temporarily exacerbated.

As far as we know the cluster should be stable at this point in time.
However, you may need to log out and log back in in order to fix the
issue for your account.

We're planning to add database backing to session handling and improve
the MediaWiki integration, to improve stability in the long term.

If you're still experiencing session issues after logging out and
logging back in, the best place to report them is this bug in

Hey, think positive.

We can use this time of just Ip editing, for get some data and analyze.

Just, like... Have you ever thought how many IPs are vandalism reversers?
and other stuff
:)
