TheDragonFire closed T185687: Wikipedia access in the United Kingdom is experiencing connection issues. as Resolved.

Cautiously closing as connectivity is back up. Somewhat speculative, but circumstantial evidence suggests that Cogent's backhaul network had a failure.

TheDragonFire added a comment to T94307: Page status indicator should not be automatically sorted outside main namespace.

@Edokter Hey! Over two years on from the opening of this ticket, {{top icon}} on enwiki has support for a sortkey parameter that allows custom sorting. You can check out my userpage for an example of this in action. This unfortunately does not meet your request for a solution without extra parameters.

@kaldari Twinkle now includes a checkbox to disable patrolling of the article. There are many situations in which it is inappropriate to mark a page as patrolled when you are tagging it.

jfsamper was having this issue yesterday, and we presumed that T141482 was the cause but this sounds more plausible.

TheDragonFire added a comment to T69859: Open up Deletion tag log for non PageCuration user scripts.

I would also like to reiterate that there has never been any consensus that deletion tagging should be restricted to New Page Reviewers. Such a proposal did not form part of the RfC and to my knowledge, such a proposal has never been made. However, if you are going to cite policy, please cite all of it, including:
Only a registered, logged-in user can complete steps II and III. (Autoconfirmed registered users can also use the Twinkle tool to make nominations.) If you are unregistered, you should complete step I, note the justification for deletion on the article's talk page, then post a message at Wikipedia talk:Articles for deletion requesting that someone else complete the process.

I would like to reiterate that there has never been any consensus that deletion tagging should be restricted to New Page Reviewers. Such a proposal did not form part of the RfC and to my knowledge, such a proposal has never been made. Quite to the contrary, IP editors are permitted to take articles to AfD. If something doesn't meet our policy, we want to know about it.

Logging that User:jfsamper seems to be experiencing this issue so that I don't forget. There do not appear to be are no global locks or blocks affecting them. The user will hopefully be around tomorrow on #wikimedia-tech for further debugging effort.
