I have been a happy user and contributor to the Wiki for a while, but it seems to be down now. I haven't been able to sign on recently. Anyone know what's happening with it?

Wow you really have trouble reading don't you? It is still broken like Lch said. You basically asked the same question last week and got the same reply.

Apparently it is a bit harder to fix than originally thought of. Relax, and wait. It will probably be back, ad if it is down for good, well just ask Lch for the backups and try something else.

Also, your message is even incorrect. Not being able to sign on implies that you can reach the page. Which isn't true, as the wiki has been unreachable.

I thought about reposting my answer, but I thought that maybe I didn't understand the question the first time. Still, patience young grasshoper.

Sorry for the duplication. I didn't see my original post and decided I had done something wrong when I submitted it.

That only invites more spam.

Hello all,

the Wiki is up and running again. We had this purple bog beast infestation in our home, and although our experts were already on the case, we had to devote all our free time to those experts, too, you see...



Okay, jokes aside, I am very sorry for the long downtime. When the captcha extension made trouble I turned the web server off, thinking that I could get to fix that problem soon - which regrettably was not the case. Yesterday I did some upgrades to the underlying operating system and since I started the Web server again, with the Wiki still in its defunct read-only state, hoping that I could run some reparations before announcing "The Wiki is back" to the outside world, I already received an email from llama and even some donations from community members. Those donations will go into the "new HDD for the Wiki" fund, thanks a lot.

(tech talk mode on)
Now that I had a closer look at the situation, the problem was that the Recaptcha extension was being incorporated into the official MediaWiki code, and those updated files have been pulled through SVN updates like they should. The configuration files still linked against the files from the old recaptcha library, though, and those started to fail working correctly at some point. Pretty resistant to any hotfixes. Now that I had enough distance to this, I finally noticed the misconfiguration.
(tech talk mode off)


I will work some more on the underlying Wiki software when I find time for that, but right now you're invited to start using the Wiki in its current form, and please report if you receive any other errors.

Congrats lch!

And thanks for all your work on the wiki.

If you didn't already know how much everyone gets out of the wiki, you can tell how much we love it on the rare occasions when it's unavailable. As anyone who has any background in IT stuff knows, this is normal for all of us users - we express our love for the service you provide by kvetching when it is temporarily unavailable. The enthusiasm of the kvetching is a reasonable gauge for the intensity of our love.

@Ich,

Many thanks for your work, and the return of the site. Now that I've seen the photo, I had not realised that you were so young when I asked in a post about how long the site was down, may I say your IT skills are remarkable for someone of your age.
