Hi this is my first bug report. this has probably been reported already, but if it
hasn't can you name the bug after me? Kindof like someone seeing a star for the first
There is a bug in wikipedia that makes the categories go up and cover up the writing:
Look at this http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v516/travbailey/buginwikipedia.jpg
Whenever I edit the article, the categories bar is all messed up.
Once I hit the article button, the article is fine. Weird.
Any reason why?
You folks registration is much more time consuming then regular wikipedia.
It works as expected for me in IE 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_gdr.050301-1519 when I
edit the article you linked to. What version of Internet Explorer are you using
(go to Help -> About Internet Explorer)? I would suspect that this is some
screwball rendering bug in IE that couldn't be worked around in MediaWiki
without collateral damage of some kind. Try upgrading to the latest version, if
you haven't already.
If it really bothers you, you could upgrade to IE 7, or switch to Firefox or
Opera or something, or whatever. That would almost certainly solve it, but is
probably overkill for such a minor thing.
I get the same rendering from time to time, but when I reload the page, the
rendering is fine. This is a MSIE bug.

Unlike Wikipedia, we need to be able to hunt people down and torture further
information out of them in order to further evaluate and thus discard or solve
Minor MSIE specific bug, fixed in later releases. Closing.
