Default Re: Hamumu Wiki Trouble

It sounds like there was some sort of ephemeral bug or issue with Wikia's servers that caused the page to appear to have no contents, as indeed the only changes to the Dr. L page are BD adding back then re-removing the small section. Hopefully whatever it was doesn't happen again.

ChessManiac, while of course I would never argue against offline backups (and indeed I do keep backups of the wiki), in the general case wiki software (especially MediaWiki, which is used by Wikipedia, Wikia, amd many others) has very strong support for viewing the edit history of pages and undoing or otherwise fixing potentially undesired edits, making vandalism easy to deal with even without offline backups.
