Internal Server Error

This is a very odd error: if I try to add a new section to the page and click "preview", I get an Internal Server error. But it looks like removing the paragraph "Fine. If the sole necessary qualification is that I’m the only one present who is not a member of anyone’s entourage, and my ignorance is no obstacle, so be it." from the Ascension Address allows me to add new sections without getting that error.

Does anyone have any idea what's going on here? --Kevan (talk) 12:49, 25 January 2021 (UTC)

Weird. Did you try removing that line, adding the other sections, and then putting the line back in? Josh (talk) 15:45, 25 January 2021 (UTC)
I didn't. I tried it. It gives an Internal Server Error when I try to add the line back! My guess would be that there's a forgotten plugin that's reacting to some word in that sentence, combined with a heading tag, but then crashing. Nothing's standing out at Special:Version (by which I mostly mean: the die-rolling plugin I was trying and failing to write the other year is definitely switched off), but I guess we should see how the wiki goes generally over the next few days rather than Zendo-analysing what may be a much wider error, as writing this dynasty page up isn't urgent. --Kevan (talk) 16:21, 25 January 2021 (UTC)

And okay, I just got a server error when trying to add a new section to Discussion: Dynasty Ideas. Something is up. --Kevan (talk) 14:32, 26 January 2021 (UTC)

(I ended up just putting an HTML comment in the middle of the word "if", which let me add new sections. This was discussed on Slack a bit but we couldn't replicate it in any meaningful way: pages like the Ruleset obviously include the word "if" a lot, and can still be edited.) --Kevan (talk) 17:34, 2 March 2021 (UTC)
