Oblivion:Schemer

Something funny is going on with this page. If I try to view it without logging in, I get a "Database Error" with this description:

A database query syntax error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software. The last attempted database query was: (SQL query hidden) from within function "Job::pop". MySQL returned error "1205: Lock wait timeout exceeded; Try restarting transaction (localhost)".

If I log in, the page displays correctly. Is it me, a temporary glitch, or is something more sinister going on? --Gaebrial 10:07, 10 June 2008 (EDT)

I get the same result, but that's probably not surprising. I'd guess that somebody anonymous tried to access the page when the database was down during the morning reboot, which means every anon editor will get that error message because of the way the caching works. Of course, I could be utterly wrong about that. Hopefully Nephele or Daveh will know more about the cause, and more importantly, how to fix it. –RpehTCE 10:16, 10 June 2008 (EDT)
I purged the page this morning which, as far as I can tell, fixed the problem. --NepheleTalk 01:20, 11 June 2008 (EDT)
