The Recent Changes page for the English Wikipedia is showing three changes that supposedly
occurred in May 10, 2025. This is 20 years in the future. This must be some kind of bug.
Also on those three history pages (and the related diff pages):
Also a problem on dawiki:
I don't see anything unusual on any of the linked pages. They all
show May 10, 2005, not May 10, 2025.
Still there? Intermittent? Cleared caches? Can you make
dawiki OK now
I can only assume someone fixed those records and didn't record it in
the server admin log.
Another was found on fr.wikinews:
I've corrected that item in old and recentchanges table.
Most likely cause is a misset clock that was corrected without anybody
mentioning it (or perhaps a bizarre NTP error automatically creating,
then fixing the problem).
(In reply to comment #4, overlapped with posting of comment #6)
The three edits on en.wikipedia now show the correct year for me, as do the ko &
da URLs. Did someone with direct database access fix them? Had someone set the
wrong time on a server while these edits were done?
The problem was not intermittent for me. In Recentchanges, there was a "10 May
2025" section with the three edits above "11 May 2005" and "10 May 2005", seen
on two/three. The actual edits on 10 May were:
Cam_Jackson : "Hoary M" "(fixing link)"
User:Maustrauser : "Maustrauser"
Talk:Germany : "Heimdal" "(→This remains an extemely biased article -
What the fuss is all about)"
And I had thought that the 2025 edit for User:Maustrauser was the second edit,
not the initial one. But otherwise, all three now show a time of 22:00, and I
wasn't aware that they had the same time when the year was 2025. The
ko.wikipedia history URL now shows the same time for its 10 May edit.
If the problem was a server setting, could servmon detect and report this?
The Recent Changes and Edit History for the English Wikipedia seems to have been
On bg.wiktionary there are 7 edits from May 10, 2025:
it was system clock error, I fixed most of wikis (enwiki,dewiki,...) at first,
and now I fixed bgwiktionary.
