Liz added a comment to T367464: [bug] Quarry queries not completing .

Well, the queries were running and finishing up for a few hours last night (at least it was night where I was at) but now they are back to not completing at all. But for a few hours, everything was in sync.

But hey, a few of my queries just issued reports! I don't know what happened since I posted this message but something has changed for the better. Surprised me.

I detected the problem whenever I opened this bug report. I remember filing a different one for Quarry about two weeks ago but this kind of incident, with queries running endlessly and never finishing, only happened starting last week at least for me. You'll notice in my original bug report, I say that about 1/2 of my queries were completing but that soon turned into ZERO queries finishing.

Well, maybe it depends on the database, queries aren't running on enwiki_p. But I've noticed that editors have just given up on running Quarry queries since about 2 days ago when it stopped working

But hitting "Explain" fills up the part of the page with a table where the query results should be plus it is in code that only a developer or coder would understand, not us mere editors.

Liz added a comment to T367464: [bug] Quarry queries not completing .

Now, there is a little grey box saying "Explain" at the bottom of the page under Query Status (see this Quarry query ) that just produces a table of code I don't understand and isn't helpful at all, at least to me.

I'm not getting that message any more but some queries are just running endlessly and never finishing. I had one that ran for more than 3 hours before I finally cancelled it. Does this warrant a new case to be opened?

Liz added a comment to T207959: [Pages created] Investigate allowing querying of users with over max edit count.

Is there any discussion here any more about raising the count of edits for productive editors to see their Edit Count information? I could see all of my data until it reached 600,000 edits, then I was given permission to reach 650,000 edits and five months later I reached this ceiling. It is very useful to see the XTools information which I checked several times a day, both my editor counts and admin counts.

I'm not sure what's causing it (regarding s1), but I'm finding some bots are not returning up-to-date reports. With s1 down for 5 days, there should be a backlog of lengthy reports but I'm seeing short reports or none at all. Did every new edit since May 25th get restored and integrated? Sorry that I don't know the correct terminology.

My only concern is that I'm not a programmer, just a regular editor, and I run several queries evert day that were written for me by more tech-minded editors. I hope if we move from Quarry to Superset, it is at least as user-friendly and easy to use as Quarry is (and hopefully, even more so!).

I don't understand the difference between what is "production" and what is not (and what difference that makes to the developers) but, again, I'm with Jonesey95. All information that is communicated is valuable to us volunteer editors, including what you have just shared here today. Most of us have our daily editing routines and handling problems that show up on bot or database reports is part of our daily work. When they go down, we understandably have questions.

Just a reminder that today is June 1st and the Special Pages, at least the ones we utilize on En.Wiki, typically get generated on the 1st of the month...and then the 4th, 7th, 10th, 13th, 16th, 19th, 22nd, 25th, 28th and sometimes the 31st. If they could get back to being generated on their old, regular schedule, that would be great!

This happened again today. The special pages involving categories eventually updated at around 00:30 UTC on May 29th but so far, no updates today on May 31st and they usually also update on the 1st of every month so the reports should have been issued both today and also tomorrow....so we'll see.

Liz reopened T307314: Lag in updating Special Pages? as "Open".

Looks like this special pages posting lag is happening again, on En.Wiki, special pages involving categories typically, for years, updated around 13:00-15:00 UTC time every 3 days but on May 25th, they updated at 19:00 UTC and today, they haven't updated at all. I'd prefer that they "catch up" and post sometime today rather than skipping a date and just updating again on June 1st as they did at the beginning of May when this lag was first reported. A late update is better than omitting an update!
