Whatever happened to The Fire Panel Wiki?

Postby randomperson » Sun Jun 18, 2017 4:34 pm

I know that we used to have a wiki http://wiki.thefirepanel.com but now I just get an error when trying to access it.
What happened?
BTW: I really liked the old Welcome graphic on The Fire Panel Wiki's main page.
URGENT: This could be the last chance to save Net Neutrality - go to https://battleforthenet.com to take action.

I wasn't a Staff Member back when the Wiki was around, so I'm not sure exactly why it was shut down, but I seem to recall that the place was overrun by spam and malicious edits. The staff at the time worked very hard to keep the Wiki presentable to the everyday users, but when you looked at the edit logs, the evidence of severe tampering was obvious. When combined with a relative lack of interest, the upkeep necessary to keep the site running and clean likely could not be justified.

I thought the wiki was lost when the RAID array failed?

The wiki never really was a thing... well kinda, not enough work was put into it.

What i consider the "Fire Alarm Wiki" is Jared's site, http://FireAlarmResources.com
