Why do I see this 4 or 5 times a day when I am editing in Familypedia? I have never come across a website that is down so much. This is Wikia. It seems to be down for 5 minutes at a time 4 or 5 times a day. What is the problem with Wikia and their servers?

On Facebook you can create memorial pages for people. However you cannot back-date images of them. You get a message "You have specified a date earlier than the creation date of the page." All images have to be dated newer than the creation of the page. So I cannot take any photos from my archive of a dead person and add a proper date to it.
