A few weeks before Wikia War 1 began, there were certain things out of place in the wiki. Certain buttons weren't accessible, messages would disappear, chat would frequently have trouble loading or continue to crash altogether. The following could mean a possibility of another outbreak:
- User list refuses to load anything.
- Chat constantly crashes/has trouble loading despite what the device you are using.
- Daily failure to upload.
- Suspicious drop ins and outs from the chat. (Username not found, no messages.)
