From 17:19 UTC on 20 October to 14:00 UTC on 22 October, sign-in and account creation via the main www.wikidot.com page was broken. This was due to a faulty code upgrade. The number of users registering was about 50% of normal.

The problem affected the Sign in and Create Account action on all pages that had not been edited since 17:19 UTC on 20 October. The symptoms were that these actions did nothing, on any browser and any PC.

On 14:00 UTC 22 October the Wikidot team restored full service and later conducted an internal process review to reduce the risk of such errors in the future.
