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.

@Kumioko2 @Owula_Kpakpo @e_j_hayes @Wikimedia You do know this is nothing more than a way for the #wmf to take power away from the projects right? This may seem good on paper, but it's going to be used like a hammer to get rid of a lot of people & not just historically abusive ones. Take it from me, the wmf cant be trusted.

@MDCore @HerrShabi @Wikimedia I'm sure there are many orgs in poorer countries readying their marketing teams for just this. but: 1."Local jobs for local people" thining will keep jobs nearby. 2. "Management by walking around" has not lessened even in the pandemic. Distributed mgmt is unimaginable to most.

@MDCore @HerrShabi @Wikimedia I hope more organisations start opening up to it! But sadly I don't think they will, not now anyway - the pandemic crisis doesn't seem to be about learning, but about survival.

@wiki_news24 #Persian_WikiPedia is directed, controlled and censored under the supervision of the Ministry of Culture and Guidance of #IRI.Any independent user who would not want to accept the government managers domination,his account likely to be blocked by slander,and threats. @Wikimedia https://t.co/3q9KQDnQs0

@Kumioko2 @CharlesMatthe12 @JeniT @Wikimedia It's a great idea for sure. @MagnusManske could pretty easily do it I would think. Theres several github repos that could be used for ideas & as starting points. Depending on the purpose, AWB is a good platform to use as well for wiki/excel/CVS comptbility. Non wiki not so much.

@Sationhund @cameliaboban @Wikimedia @krmaher @Wikipedia @mSefi @WikiDonne @WikiWomenInRed @marcmiquel @Rosiestep @wikimedia2030 @krmaher I love Wikipedia I am a feminist but not a radical ( what some label as terf) please in your new LGBTQ+ rules for editing Wikipedia don’t fall into the trap of transideology, including the confabulation of sex and gender and especially referring to born women as “Cis

@erikaherzog @AnushaA100 @cameliaboban @Wikipedia @Wikimedia Sigh. Doc James is not who I want my medical information to be filtered by on Wikipedia. Not great. At least Rosie is in there but still. And really, not talking about the significant correlation between Google search results and Wikipedia is disingenuous. Should be more clear.

@Kumioko2 @cameliaboban @Sationhund @krmaher @Wikimedia @Wikipedia @mSefi @WikiDonne @WikiWomenInRed @marcmiquel @Rosiestep @wikimedia2030 Not really true. They are not universal nor do they apply to everyone. In fact there are many that routinely violate them whenever it suits them. And those 5 pillars are built on a hill of sand, out of combustible materials that the community and them #wmf ignite in flame wars.

@Kumioko2 @WikimediaAffCom @Rosiestep @Wikipedia @Wikimedia @WikiCommons @MetaWiki @wikidata @Wikiquote @Wikispecies @Wikivoyage @mediawiki @Wikibooks @wikinews @wikisource @Wikiversity @WiktionaryUsers On the face of this it looks like a good thing...but it's not. This is the #wmf making sure that dont have another situation like the Framban. This will lead to a loss of community control & give nearly unlimited authority to the the already problematic trust and safety section.

@maettig @Volker_E @cameliaboban @marcmiquel @jorgeavargas @WikimediaDesign @GoogleDesign @MatiasDuarte @Wikimedia @wikimedia2030 @materialdesign @_userexperience @TheUXSyndicate @googlefonts @WikiDonne @lessanspagEs @WikiWomenInRed What if I need to dim an inactive element? No matter what opacity I choose, it will create new shades that are not in the palette. Am I violating the rules? And if not, why not? Who decides what's allowed. What's the difference?

@Sationhund @Wikimedia @cameliaboban @Wikipedia @krmaher I love Wikipedia I am a feminist but not a radical ( what some label as terf) please in your new LGBTQ+ rules for editing Wikipedia don’t fall into the trap of transideology, including the confabulation of sex and gender and especially referring to born women as “Cis

@Ngostary2k @imlaurie @IIbegbulam @AfLIACon @WikiLibrary @Wikimedia @Wikipedia @librarian_nkem @ifeyinwa16 @nkechi_udeze @brewingarchives @dianaepark I have started putting down something. Writing when one is excited to share makes all the activities come to life with imageries. For instance, my sharing of #AfLibWk #1Lib1Ref as it happens, comes out undiluted and clear

@e_j_hayes @Kumioko2 @Owula_Kpakpo @Wikimedia People rarely call me naive. We interact with WMF and communiy, because they have the digital real estate. We can get our work done in spite of them. Trust does not matter, rather that is their excuse to behave like assholes. Not behaving like them to work w/ good faith partners

@IIbegbulam If you are not learning a skill or two or perfecting one during this lockdown, you don't understand the meaning of the word opportunity. Turn your lemons to lemonade! @AfLIACon @WikiLibrary @Wikimedia @librarian_nkem @Ngostary2k #AfLibWk #1Lib1ref

@Kumioko2 @restlesscurator Just a recommendation. Do not put your professional at the mercy of the @wikimedia community. They are toxic, hostile and will not hesitate to stab you in the back.

@WikimediaAffCom Take actions to ban, sanction, or otherwise limit the access of @Wikimedia movement participants who do not comply with these #policies and the #TermsOfUse 📑 6/7

@IsladeMaltaa @Kumioko2 @cameliaboban @krmaher @Wikimedia @Wikipedia @mSefi @WikiDonne @WikiWomenInRed @marcmiquel @Rosiestep @wikimedia2030 I hope they don't try to impose you the idea of "109 genders" or that an historican personality was "good" or "bad". This is not freedom, that's the real thing to watch out!

@IIbegbulam You gotta envy my life right now! Learning while working is the new fun as African librarians promote African Scholars to the World in the first online African Librarians Week. Enjoying the experience! @AfLIACon @WikiLibrary @Wikimedia @Wikipedia #AfLbWk #1Lib1ref https://t.co/xkA4oBTMJg

@hhpapazian @Wikimedia @Wikipedia @krmaher Just make sure you're not as over-zealous as some of your editors who want to validate their own life choices by "flavoring" the facts...

@Sationhund @cameliaboban @krmaher @Wikimedia @Wikipedia @mSefi @WikiDonne @WikiWomenInRed @marcmiquel @Rosiestep @wikimedia2030 @krmaher I love Wikipedia I am a feminist but not a radical ( what some label as terf) please in your new LGBTQ+ rules for editing Wikipedia don’t fall into the trap of transideology, including the confabulation of sex and gender and especially referring to born women as “Cis

@maettig @Volker_E @cameliaboban @marcmiquel @jorgeavargas @WikimediaDesign @GoogleDesign @MatiasDuarte @Wikimedia @wikimedia2030 @materialdesign @_userexperience @TheUXSyndicate @googlefonts @WikiDonne @lessanspagEs @WikiWomenInRed It doesn't make sense to limit something that's not even a color. What about shadows? Are we supposed to limit these as well? Right now people run around changing random codebases where it either doesn't make any difference, or makes images *less* legible.

@azad_nevis @Wikimedia @Wikipedia #Persian_WikiPedia is directed, controlled and censored under the supervision of the Ministry of Culture and Guidance of #Iran.Any independent user who would not want to accept the government managers domination, his account likely to be blocked by slander, and threats.

@e_j_hayes @Kumioko2 @Owula_Kpakpo @Wikimedia Nothing is really free, it took a lot of volunteer hours to curate that knowledge. The free fanatics have an ideology not grounded in fact. The not control the narrative. I get work done just fine, yeah, don't trust anyone with PII, WMF included.

@UNHumanRights #COVID19 isn't just a medical issue. It's a human rights one too. @Wikipedia can be an important tool for bringing more attention to the pandemic's #humanrights dimensions. Sign up to learn more, via @UNHumanRights & @Wikimedia: https://t.co/1okEBe79HP #WikiForHumanRights

@alanmillerNLP Good for the @Wikimedia board to crack down on “harassment, toxic behavior, and incivility" on @Wikipedia and other projects it oversees with a new code of conduct. https://t.co/0pMVNbUn00

@raju This is a universal issue, including on @Wikipedia. We Board Trustees are determined to make it a trusted and safe community/platform, with significant resources, direction and a clear sense of purpose for @Wikimedia Foundation to work with the movement to make it much more real https://t.co/LyCi2BRgax

@raju Not "it" @verge. "We" haven't done enough. This is on all of us to do more/better, than any finger-pointing. And we will, collectively. @Wikimedia is writing new policies to fight @Wikipedia harassment: Trustees say it hasn’t done enough to stop abuse https://t.co/gKz0V01AfQ?

@BitPaySupport @eriklaan @Wikimedia Hello, thank you for reaching out to us about this. We do not support this at this time, but we pay attention to user feedback and demand. Sign up to the BitPay blog (https://t.co/kMa1wSzWl6) to stay updated on our multiple blockchain rollout and other feature improvements.

@UNHumanRights #COVID19 isn't just a medical issue. It's a human rights one too. @Wikipedia can be an important tool for bringing more attention to the pandemic's #humanrights dimensions. Sign up to learn more, via @UNHumanRights & @Wikimedia: https://t.co/1okEBe79HP #WikiForHumanRights

@cameliaboban @Sationhund @krmaher @Wikimedia @Wikipedia @mSefi @WikiDonne @WikiWomenInRed @marcmiquel @Rosiestep @wikimedia2030 The "rules for editing Wikipedia" are universal, are mandatory to anyone and are related to @Wikipedia content. Theese are the 5 pillars, that remain unchanged. Instead we are talking here about community behavior and users interaction on @Wikimedia projects. Not to be confused😉
