Tim turned it off for load reasons. Maybe if it's made more efficient it could be turned back on.

Shouldn't this be rewritten using the new redirects table? Would that make it faster?

Moez Roy is correct.

This needs to be re-enabled ASAP.

It will be re-enabled when it's been rewritten to be more efficient and not kill
our database servers. Or would you rather all the sites were horribly slow and
the data was nasty and inconsistent and generally fubared?

Smart-ass comments like these are not helpful, nor welcome on this bug tracker.

That was not a smart-ass comment, nor was it intended to be sarcastic, rude, or
unhelpful, and I'm very sorry if it came off that way. I was simply saying that
I consider this page extremely important, and would rather have the site be slow
for a couple of minutes every 30 days than have this non-updating. :-)

If it were a matter of a couple of minutes every 30 days, it probably wouldn't be shut off.

Please do not post anything here that doesn't contribute to a technical solution. Vote for the bug,
and if you must grumble please do so on VPT or somewhere. Thank you.

Could Tim give his actual reasoning for turning off?

Can some one test this Patch so RobChurch or Brion can implement it into
en.wikipedia.org?

Patch appears to work.

Hurray, now implement it into en.wikipedia.org. Please.

  1. It is rude to add others to the CC-list for a bug without their permission.
  2. Assuming you or one of your colleagues was the person attempting to flag me

down in IRC earlier; that is obnoxious and unacceptable behaviour.

  1. The patch will be applied when someone has time to do it.

Who would that someone be?
