It's not a bug, sometimes the UFOPaedia traffic exceeds the server limit. Next time just try again sometime later.

I can confirm that the Sniper LW link is broken. I haven't been able to load it for several days now, and it is the only page that I have not been able to load so far.

The above link doesn't work for me either. However, strip the www. from the link and it does work. Try: http://ufopaedia.org...iper_(Long_War)

What pages are using the broken link?

edit :Also tried the internal links within the wiki itself, and they seem fine.

That's odd. If I click on your link without the "www." it still does not work for me. If it helps. the error I get is:
======

This is a cached copy of the requested page, and may not be up to date.
Sorry! This site is experiencing technical difficulties.

Try waiting a few minutes and reloading.
(Cannot contact the database server)

======
And just to clarify, I get this error for no other page in the LW wiki that I have visited, but this one has persisted for all reloads in the past 3 days thus far.

Like Plockets, the page doesn't load for me either (with or without the www). ;)

I've saved a small edit to the page, which'll hopefully boot out whatever rubbish bit of data was sitting in whatever cache server was producing the error. Any difference for you guys?

Thanks for the fix. I Play LW not very often and do not remember all the stuff. LW is really complex so planning/analysing without informations from the wiki is a pain....
