[MediaWiki-l] PetScan Query Times Out


#1

Hello!

This PetScan query
<https://petscan.wmflabs.org/?language=en&project=wikipedia&depth=50&categories=Male%20writers&ns[0]=1&larger=10000&search_max_results=500&interface_language=en&&doit=>
keeps timing out ("bad gateway"). Any idea why?

Thank you in advance.

Best,
Reem

You set the depth to 50. The category system is ... suboptimal, so you
probably get all articles in enwiki.
Depth 5 works, but already gives 23158 results...
