Should be available now.

I still need to disable the requirement of phpBB login.

Rules Wiki is up. Please login with your username and password from the old board (for the time being). Think I found most of the links to the old board and changed them to here.

Is the wiki still being worked on? I'd like to suggest a community portal page and categories to keep things organised and easy to search through.  Given a bit longer to work out all the little quirks of the game, I'd be happy to contribute.

Due to a recent glut of spam on the wiki (and thanks to those who have been undoing the spam), I've made it so that you need a verified email address to make edits.

I've also protected a number of pages to admin only. If you wish to make a change to one of these pages, send me a message with the change.

If by the end of the weekend, there has been no spam on the wiki, I'll unprotect pages. However, I will leave the bit about requiring a valid email address for edits/user accounts.

The wiki is currently offline and will most likely generate a 403 error.

The cause of this is my host claiming that the wiki processes are consuming 134% of the CPU. (Neat trick that). Needless to say they are unhappy regardless of the actual usage. Until I can figure out why it is consuming so much CPU, it'll be unavailable :(

It's a stock Mediawiki install, with a couple of extensions for security. I can't see any reason why it'd consume so many resources.

The wiki is up for now while the host runs new usage statistics.

Added a section to the main page for Version history with links to release notes.
Created said release notes page on the wiki :)

Added a captcha question/answer to registering on the wiki.

Here are the questions/answers (not like they were self-evident).
question "What planet are you on?", answer "Earth"
question "What is the answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything?", answer "42"
question "What is the name of the planet Mars?", answer "Mars"
question "What color is blue?", answer "Blue"

Answers are without quotes.

I've temporarily disabled the wiki as the host is complaining of excessive usage traced back to the wiki. However, I don't see any edits or anything since 2014. So I have no idea what they are talking about.

I hope that wasn't me? I've been reading it compulsively the last few weeks. . .  How much of the traffic is from South Korea?

I check the wiki a few times a week or even day, half the accesses are probably me but I can't see how that's excessive.
I've always planned on contributing/ improving it but never really got around to it.
In comparison I use the forum far more excessively, refreshing the updated topics a few times a day and I'm trying to read all the old fiction and rules posts.
The wiki isn't using 134% of the servers data is it? :p

I'm sure it's not linked to any one person. :) But my eyes are on you two now ;)

I think it is more linked to something trying to run things as a spambot or the like, but it can't and continues to send the query.
