Seen as I know what you were trying to say

Wikis have been re-opened. Given the extreme sporadic nature of it, I can't debug any further without it occurring again. When ever that is.

CLG Wiki is still marked closed.

EDIT: NVM, I just needed to refresh

Thank you very much for resolving this quickly.

I do not consider the issue resolved.
This script should not be used in production again until this is investigated properly.

You can track down the problem by running it in no-op mode regularly and checking the results until the false positives are found under controlled conditions.

The wiki being marked as "closed" causes the readers to freak out every time and causes significant stress to editors. This happened to frackinuniverse.miraheze.org at least twice (and cached "this wiki is closed" sitenotice is still shown to new visitors of it, and there seems to be no way to remove it other than hiding all sitenotices via CSS), and I would very much prefer not to explain to users "is the world ending or not" for the third time.

Additional logging is in place. This hasn't happened for a while. We will keep it monitored.

When this happened a while ago, this did not actually show the issue during multiple attempts.
