Initial page creation and content failed Hucknall 07:40, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

Attempts to link internally Arnold, Nottinghamshire and Carrington, Nottinghamshire failed on two occasions the wikitext versions had to be entered in order for the link to be included. You appear to have a server issue at the present time for UK contributor

The content at present represents only part of the initial page load-external link failures prevent further contribution:

"waiting for" alternates with "loading data" before reappearance of the unedited page displays. I have no further time today to continue attempting to load links. This is not the first occasion that Uk contributors have experienced technical issues when editing.Hucknall 08:14, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

I am using Firefox and my current internet speed is 16 Mbps on SpeedTest. I have been able to contribute to Wikipedia from this machine concurrently and suggest you have a technical failure at present.

Ivor, I had same experience East Peckham, Kent page not accepting external links and same "waiting for" and loading messages. Phil and I cannot work in this way and have abandoned contributions on West Kent pages until we see some technical fixes. Sophie has concluded after tech issues throughout the month and four other contributors have not worked during December. FamilySearch evidently have continuing technical and developmental problems which none of us recall in the development of Wikipedia and this seems to be server and developmental in origin. We feel we may work on Wikipedia content only in future like other groups since FamilySearch has such a "work in progress construction site" feel to English genealogy. If there are any evident fixes in January let us know; we reached conclusion that until there is a working Family History Library catalogue version online that our database for records from the various Kent archives is better contributed elsewhere particularly via the Kent OPC site. Paul now has archive closed for 7 months approx so is waiting for FamilySearch developments in next 6-9 months before moving on contributions. We have discontinued any image contributions in view of the problems of caption removal and disquiet from Geograph contributors. Penshurst 10:43, 30 December 2011 (UTC) I did manage to add an internal link for you for Arnold, Nottinghamshire but this page wikitext is not working for me now! "Things can only get better"

We apologize for the many problems that have occurred recently with the Wiki. We do believe many of these have been fixed now and we have tech people working very hard to get the others cleared up. If you are still experiencing the problems listed above, would you please let us know? And be sure to send an email to with Wiki in the title. That will alert the tech people. Thanks for your help with the Wiki. Lynda 20:38, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
