How to Solve Wikimedia Down or Outage Issues:

We have tried pinging Wikimedia.org using our servers in diverse locations and the website returned the above results.

If Wikimedia.org is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting. Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or website maintenance is in progress.

If the site is UP for us but you however cannot access it, try one of our following solutions:

1. It might be Browser Related:

To solve Browser related issues that might make the site/server down for you, do a full Browser refresh of this site. You can do this by holding down CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your browser.

This trick works perfectly on Chrome, Firefox, Brave, Opera, Safari and whatever default browser comes with your Windows nowadays lol.

2. Clear Your Cookies and Cache.

The contents of all modern sites and apps today are usually cached. This means a copy is stored in your browser as long as you have visited that page before. This is to make it easier to access when next you visit that page. This might be a problem especially if the page was down last time you checked.

You might need to clear that out of your browser memory for the site to load properly.

3. Fix DNS Problems

Domain Name System (DNS) is what allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words ( e.g .com, .us) in order to be remembered easily. This is usually provided by your Internet Service Provider.

To fix this, clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has.

@AhNowSeriously ' I will NEVER give another penny to @Wikipedia after their anti Jeremy Corbyn statement today. It's all about the wealthy not wanting to pay tax and opposition to Corbyn's standing up to Israel #GeneralElection2019 #GE19 @Wikimedia #GeneralElection19 #GE2019 #TonightVMTV @bbc

@makingjam Used wikipedia in the last 30 days? If you're like most people, you did. If you're like most people you'll enjoy this talk by Charlotte Gauthier of @Wikimedia foundation. She helped to bring wikipedia to India and Africa. *Not* an easy mission. 👏 #pmot https://t.co/662yELsL0k

@stanshih @jimmy_wales @Wikimedia I received this. I’m disturbed that only 2% of users donate. What are you doing to do better? One simple idea: Why not charge an annual fee for the iOS and Android app while access via browser remains free ? https://t.co/SQemlNLX95

@GerardMeijssen Hoi, @KateMcMilner I hazard to guess that this is your @ORCID_Org id.. As it is not public, how do I know you are a researcher.. When it is public, like prof Lawn, you will have way more credit in the @Wikimedia world.. Our projects are well read.. https://t.co/NjW9y6Ur3S

@ContraIntuicion @wikipedantic @Viquipedia @LovelyMrPitiful @Wikimedia I got my response. @wikimedia highlights a neutral point of view as one of their core principles. Instead, the Catalan @Viquipedia claim they are not a 100% neutral to justify their push for a nationalistic agenda https://t.co/VMZxmtS15q

@albertheyounger @damenleeturks @dwinspear @Wikimedia @ripplemdk I believe shared this with me recently. I have a high amount of personal shame that I currently have no web portfolio...which is why I hadn't looked into it deeper...but why not? Each missed opportunity is more motivation to get my crap together.

@andrawaag @ReaderMeter @SiobhanLeachman @HuyPieter @adzebill @ngaioweevil @inaturalistnz @inaturalist @Wikimedia Agree, but I am not sure if we should work towards stamp collecting, i.e. adding anything eligble to commons. IMO we should only import once a picture seems needed. Which means that selecting pictures directly from the source should be optimized.

@JennaGlenwood @Wikipedia You say you're not for profit, but then one tiny thing happens to @Wikimedia and you're forcing "PLEASE DONATE TO US" and "GIVE US MONEY" down our throats. Also, I think we'll just forget that Turks have no access to Wikipedia. You gotta get things together.

@darenwelsh @wikiworks @Wikimedia @mediawiki @SemanticMW Not planned. Crew requested ability to access the wiki so I nudged an edit along with instructions for access. They edited a discussion page, so no form (yet).

@Hugo_Lz Urgent call to @Wikimedia community: #Hongkong #PolyU which hosted the 2013 #Wikimania is being attacked by police NOW. They hosted us. Today students are attacked. Armed @HKpoliceForce is not answer to political conflict. https://t.co/yDZgzCUIwW https://t.co/vHqBE2gEIO

@darenwelsh @Wikimedia @mediawiki @SemanticMW Christina added a discussion topic to the page about herself (Talk:Christina Hammock Koch) to note her FE-3 designation for Increment 61 (since the Increment 61 page only had her down as "FE").

@KnitMeAThneed @OpenGLAM @Wikimedia Some of them will even work for the pleasure of working on content relevant to NZ
