Wikipedia: Latest listed revision for a page is not what is shown when viewed
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: jhales.perth

I visited the Earth article and it loaded a page about Simon Harcourt, but with
the title, "Earth". I checked the history, presuming it was a vandalism, but the
latest revision listed was about Earth, not Simon Harcourt.

My attempt to restore the page by editing and saving the last revision about
Earth failed, the program claiming that there was an edit conflict.

When was this? It sounds like the vandalism was reverted between the time you
loaded the page and the time you viewed the history.
