Looks like we have a big page lock coming. Big in the sense of many pages and big in the sense that the pages to be locked are too big.
It looks like pages over 500,000 characters (html formatted, that is) are crashing the server when someone tries to edit them. programmer's whine
They need to be fixed, anyway. Way too big for one page. They need to be broken up into subpages of a reasonable size.
I'm trying to get better about communicating before big changes, so we'll let this one run for a while before taking the action. The server crashes do come under the heading of 'urgent', though.
See this page: Overly Long Pages
another programmer's thing
