Tech:System thinks I am logged out
User links (user page, talk page, preferences, watchlist, contribs, and log out) at the top right do not show up after logging in (it still simply keeps the log in/register link). Links to features available only to logged in users—of particular note, "upload new version of file" on special:upload, are also absent.
When it happens
For ages, especially when other caching issues get worse. I can't believe we don't have an official bug report on this! (Maybe I just couldn't find it, or maybe we just gave up on filing reports.)
What should happen
Clear answer here: let's stop confusing newer editors!
How to fix it
The workaround for the upload new version link is usually just to reload the page, but that shouldn't be necessary. There is no workaround for the user profile links that I know of.
A new cacheing system is being deployed on Monday July 9 which should remedy this.--IBobi 19:45, 6 July 2012 (EDT)
