bad link
Comment 1 Rowan Collins [IMSoP] 2005-03-03 14:13:23 UTC
Please try in future to include a better description in bug reports. "Meadow
Vole" is not a summary of the bug, and "bad link" gives very little information
about what it is you think needs fixing.

Looking at the page in question, my *guess* is that you visited the page while
it was vandalised by replacing it with a redirect to a hideously mangled page on
a different language Wikipedia. [See and]

This doesn't, as far as I know, consitute or reveal any bugs in the software or
configuration, it's just somebody being very bored and/or very socially inept.

If I've misdiagnosed the issue, please reopen the bug with a better description.
Comment 2 Zigger 2005-03-03 14:45:02 UTC
For the record, after this obscure report was made and before Comment #1,
the page showed (in anonymous mode) the message Mediawiki:Missingarticle,
which is different from the standard Mediawiki:Noarticletext message
shown for a fabricated article title such as Thisisnotanarticle.

Logging-in showed the real reverted page.

Using an &action=purge URL seemed to fix the problem.
