Tech:Some special pages broken
Several pages in the "Special" namespace return "MySQL Server has gone away". See for example Special:SpecialPages (linked in the "Toolbox" in the left nav). This was not happening yesterday.
When it happens
Attempt to load (for example) Special:SpecialPages, and "MySQL Server has gone away" is returned. Happens on every language version I've checked.
What should happen
How to fix it
This has been reported & I have verified the error; tech is prepping for a new cacheing system to be deployed Monday but I have asked if they can look at Special over the weekend because I am guessing it will not be a difficult fix -- possibly it went awry after the Patrolled Multiple Edits fix?--IBobi 19:44, 6 July 2012 (EDT)
