Description Alfio Puglisi 2005-01-08 14:16:45 UTC
An article history ([[:it:Piero Angela]]) was truncated when someone edited it.
The article now only has the section edited by the last user. Relevant entries
from recent changes page:

(diff) (cron) . . mN Piero Angela; 13:28 . . (Discussione)
(diff) (cron) . . m  Piero Angela; 13:09 . . Hellisp (Discussione)

The article was marked as NEW in the second edit, and a look at the
article history shows it as truncated to these two entries. Could it be
some master/slave issue between the database servers?
Comment 1 Alfio Puglisi 2005-01-08 20:01:27 UTC
The history of the article in question was recovered by an admin using this

* delete the page
* recover the deleted edits using the new 1.4 interface

So it seems that the "old" table was not really affected, just some references
to it.

Similar problem (page move) on A user moves a talk
page toАзис, and the talk page dissapears, redlinks,
as if non existant. I tried to repeat the bug moving another page, but didn't

Recovered the text of the talk page from the RC-diff links
but the history is not there, on neither of the pages.

Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2005-11-03 21:25:08 UTC
For some reason the page was incorrectly stored (ns=0, title='Беседа:Азис').
I've moved it to:Беседа:Азис/broken&action=history
Comment 4 Petko Yotov 2005-11-04 10:09:22 UTC
Sorry I mistakenly wrote 'wiktionary' where it should be 'wikiquote'. Thanks for
having recovered the page. --Petko
Comment 5 Brion Vibber 2007-01-24 17:05:27 UTC
Presumably an old bad language file. Data was recovered, closing FIXED.
