Headline[edit]

This headline comes across as a noun phrase; recommended headline style is a sentence. It's not quite that simple, but the more advanced techniques are fairly constrained, and this doesn't fit any of the forms I recognize. --Pi zero (talk) 22:17, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Review of revision 2808332 [Passed][edit]

  • Not worth renaming now, after publication when it could create multiple entries in some feeds, but we usually use single-quotes in headlines. --Pi zero (talk) 17:10, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Arrrg, blast. Sorry about that. It shouldn't have been double quotes in any case. My bad. — Gopher65talk 17:31, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

The "What" / "Where" and When[edit]

From reading the article it is unclear to me what network objects (websites, organisations) were affected, and for how long. --Gryllida 08:14, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

What = Routers. Where = All over the physical internet (worldwide). When = Tuesday, and continuing on into the indefinite future until lazy ISPs and routing companies replace 10-15 year old hardware with new stuff.
It's a strange one, that's for sure. Doesn't quite fit the regular WWW, because it's a www story (heheheh). — Gopher65talk 12:50, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
As for specific companies, those mentioned were particularly badly affected, but many had intermittent problems, perhaps only for a few minutes, throughout the day, as the number of errors worldwide was nearly 66% higher than usual, with each error possibly affecting many individuals.
