I don’t know what I did, but it wasn’t good. I’m currently checking to see if new proposals show up in the sidebar.

I assume it was my fault because I had just made a proposal and when I looked back at the blog it was broken. Sorry about that!

Almost certainly not your fault, looking at the content of the Proposal via the editing menu. I made a new (identical) revision of it, but that didn’t appear to change it. I’m going to try setting its status to “Closed” (and putting it back) which is technically illegal but these are special circumstances.

And closing it worked. Reopening it caused the problem again. So I’ve closed it again.

No idea what was in there that could break the blog.

This clearly calls for a Call for Judgement, but I’m tired and unsure how to word it for now.

against S/K now that the blog appears to be fixed

We had a similar problem a couple of years ago where somebody’s blog entry would consistently break the front page. It was possibly a control character from whatever text editor they were originally writing it in, but I don’t think we ever got to the bottom of it.

I’m going to blame Kevan again.
