What happens[edit]

It seems as though some pages cannot be exported with their full history. Look at en:Paris for an example. The server responds, but the response is empty. -- Mark 03:31, 2 May 2006 (EDT)

Any update on this one? I ran a spider to get copies of articles I've made edits to a while back and ended up with a bunch of failures. As more edits are made and edit histories get longer I would imagine that this will be a problem with more and more articles. The alternative is to spider article histories and look at each individual change, but that puts a lot more load on the server. Some of the articles that failed for me include: Australia, Bangalore, Berlin, Bombay, Boston, Brazil, Chattanooga, Chennai, Chicago, China, Cleveland, France, Helsinki, India, Israel, London, Main_Page, Malaysia, Munich, New_York_%28city%29, New_Zealand, Oxford_%28Mississippi%29, Paris, Peru, Philadelphia, Poland, Rome, San_Francisco, Seattle, Singapore, Spain, United_Kingdom, United_States_of_America, Vancouver, Vienna, Warsaw, Washington_%28D.C.%29. -- Ryan 16:57, 29 June 2006 (EDT)

When it happens[edit]

What should happen[edit]

How to fix it[edit]

This is a MW-related improvement issue, so I'm merging this to Tech:Export improvements. --Peter Talk 11:32, 21 June 2012 (EDT)
