Description Rowan Collins [IMSoP] 2005-08-11 17:32:40 UTC
Various Wikipedias, Wiktionaries, etc, seem to be getting the Wikinews favicon
(the little globe) instead of their own - but only sometimes. If you go directly
to, for instance, and hard-refresh a few
times, you'll see what I mean. I think the file must have been over-written or
something on some servers and not others, so that different requests return
different files. Obviously, most people will retain one version in their cache
for a long time, so will either see it consistently right or consistently wrong.

[I tried mentionning this on IRC, but nobody seemed to be around who could fix it.]

Fixed months ago. If you're having a similar but different issue 
now that's different. Open a new bug.

Now fixed.

srv60 had a bad copy of the favicon. Fixed it. Clear your cache.
