Hi folks,

We should look into this weird problem asap, as it is causing a lot of frustration.

This looks fixed now. If it was, could someone please mark this bug as such?

I am renaming this to "Session Handling Issues" as a catch-all for every session issue right now and pointing back to this as the main issue.  They all are related it seems.

Reverting this bug's platform to All, as experience happens on all platforms.
Comment 11 Jonathan Garbee 2012-12-04 09:10:46 UTC
As an update on this.  The mediawiki engine has been updated and the sessions are vastly improved compared to what was going on.  Perhaps it is actually fixed, but only time can tell on that one.

We should keep this open as something to keep an eye on for a while just to make sure things are fixed.
Comment 12 Ryan Lane 2012-12-04 17:55:05 UTC
The MediaWiki upgrade isn't scheduled till tomorrow, unless someone else has done it, which I'm kind of doubting...
Comment 13 Jonathan Garbee 2012-12-04 18:23:02 UTC
Correct, there was a mis-communication along the line to me on it.
