looked up Otter.

Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 180 seconds exceeded in /usr/local/apache/common-local/php-1.5/includes/Sanitizer.php on line 551

This was a case of vandalism.

How to deal with such cases:
a) go to history
b) generate a diff link in "reversed order" where oldid is the revisionid of the
last revision

Changed "OS" and "Hardware" to "All" despite the fact that I did not get this
error but the page did not stop loading for me.

best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

P.S. Please open a new bug if you think that the generation of such a link /
links is usefull for sysops. The question is where.

If you open
You will not see that the second line is "endless":

Tried to paste these three lines at
but received
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate
1877745 bytes) in /home/pastebin/lib/geshi/geshi.php on line 2213

Will not paste the first three lines here in MediaZilla / browsers.

[[en:user:Wertywerty]] is exploiting a bug in the texarea box.
Comment 3 orock 2006-01-17 17:28:21 UTC
i would think if the 180 second execution time threshold was crossed there is a good chance that the 
page data is corrupt or victim to vandalism.

maybe it would be helpful to have a landing page on this error that provided searching of the history for 
a term.  the problem here is that the page never loaded to allow me a link to its history tab.  this could 
also be a useful checkbox in an advanced search... 

what do you think?

The same hapened to me. I got the idea about hacking a diff link in "reversed
order" because I made more similar links few minutes before.

If a page as does not load in the future just
add manualy "?action=edit" or "?action=history" to the url. The resulting url's
are compatible with the links generated at the tabs.

In all history pages we have an unused place: the first "(cur)" using
[[MediaWiki:Cur]] is not used. At this place one could insert a valid
"(reversed)" link if more then one revidions are available. However this is not
very efficient because it would require more mouse clicks to go there.
"(reversed)" links could be available at Special:Contributions/foo too; also for
newly created pages. Last would require somthink as "?diff=-1&oldid=nnnn".
