Perhaps it's been this way and I haven't noticed because I've been busy at work... but allof the pages I'm currently editing are puting a stamp of Karlis made an edit on 31 December 2007, as seen here, for example. Is something wrong with the server? Karlis (talk) (contribs) 19:04, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

It looks like what is happening is that the script that generates that little tidbit (information on the last edit made) recognizes that you just edited the page, but because you just edited it, the page is still cached, and so it pulls the latest date in the cache (which, in the case of Mithril limbs, was 31 December 2007). When I just viewed it, it was correctly showing 29 July). So I wouldn't worry too much about it, that incorrect information should never persist for more than a few minutes, as by then the cache will have been refreshed. The feature itself isn't new, it's been around for a while. Endasil (Talk) @  00:17, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
But if you are really worried about it, this would be a discussion to have with someone from Central Wikia, as we don't have control over server-side code. Endasil (Talk) @  00:19, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
Personally i have seen this behaviour more often than not. I had always assumed it was as Endasil describes and just wrote it off as a special quirk just for editors (so to speak). ~kytti khat 07:48, 1 August 2008 (UTC)
Hi, I've tried to reproduce the problem, but can't seem to get it to happen for me. Could you provide some more explicit steps on how to reproduce the issue? -- JSharp (talk) <staff /> 07:49, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
