Wiki Data Messed Up?

There were some site issues over the weekend causing problems with logins, notifications and wall posts. Reports from some users/mods indicate some wiki pages remain broken.

If you guys can identify any broken wiki pages that might be resultant of this past weekend, post here, and we'll take a look.

@jslack: Not sure if this is related to one page but when adding associations to pages the order is messed up. Batman for example would turn up first but instead he's on the third or fourth page.

@cloudguy:Not related to this particular bug, but another issue that's noted. There are some changes being done on data structure that's out of my control. I'm trying to have a permanent fix in shortly for the result problems. Tony has been identifying issues to me as well, so it's well on my radar.

@cloudguy: this is specifically about the Top Contributors box, the Most Issue Appearances box, the Most Credits box, the Recent Issues box, the Recent Episodes box and the X appears in X issues ribbon, all the summary data for those boxes was lost for a full year before yesterday morning (for the third time since the relaunch).

@pikahyper@jslack Are you talking about pages like this, where they don't show all appearances? (Click some of the earlier issues)

@cloudguy: yep the Most issue credits and Most issue appearances sidebar boxes, all the other boxes I mentioned as well, I already sent jslack a sampler of example pages so I don't think he needs more.

Was just about to post a bug report about character appearances (like this, where the page says 11 appearances, but only 8 show up when you click to view them all), which I guess is related to this?

Any idea what kind of timescale until it's fixed?

@xens: I'm hoping to have it fixed up this week.

Most data should be restored. There might be missing data from the last couple of days, but we should be back in a good state. Let me know.

@jslack: Thanks :) Up to 9 out of 11 appearances (and 6 out of 6 images).

There still seems to be a lot of data that still exists but is not linking properly. For instance Alien Legion should appear in 66 issues but the Alien Legion comics tab only shows 14 issues. All of the issues maintain their data though. For instance, Alien Legion Force Nomad #1 still contains the team appearance. It just doesn't show on the team page

Status update.

Restorations still running, and we are seeing data come back. Unfortunately it's a really slow process. It will take several days to complete.

I'm hoping that by Monday morning I have an update for you all saying it's done.

How's the progress on the restoration going? It still looks like the information is missing.

@rubicon:What do you think is missing?

All of this should be restored.

I'm still seeing data consistently missing from all of last month and the beginning of this month, I haven't looked back further yet: Top Contributor boxes, Most Issues Appearances, Most Issue Credits, I haven't checked other types yet.

@pikahyper: Those stat items are different than the core wiki data items. Give me an example of a wiki issue you know about, that is behind on "contributor", "issue appearances" and "issue credits", so I can test the backup.

@jslack: I'll email some examples later, my server died last night and I just got home with a new one and I got a ton of wiki editing to catch up on so as soon as I get a chance.
