Wiki Resurrection

I have an initial pass at resurrecting the wiki here:

http://planewalker.com/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

With some major caveats though! This is data loaded from our cache - so the formatting is off and the links are *WAY* off - as in non-existent. I'm working on tightening up the conversion script to include those on the next pass.

Everything currently loaded from the script is here:

http://planewalker.com/wiki/index.php/Special:RecentChanges

I wanted to get some additional feedback before hand if there's stuff in here I should take a closer look at including - so - beta test away! Let me know if you run intro trouble logging in. Hypothetically this should be set up as a single sign on, but you may need to logout of the site and then log back in to get into the wiki.

Welcome. And please test out

Welcome. And please test out to make sure you can get logged in on both here and on the wiki. You may need to clear your cookies for it. But I think I have that working and if so that would rock :)

Yay

Looking good so far. I'll hopefully do some more testing this evening.
Just curious, what is your conversion script written in?

Will our old messages and games be reinstated as well?
My 1 year game died when this site died, I'd like to get it back.

The forum was the part hit

The forum was the part hit the worst by the crash. The boost cache we had running wasn't necessarily up to date - esp on older forum threads. So if we have any information from the old forums it's here:

http://mimir.planewalker.com/

http://mimir.planewalker.com/forum

http://mimir.planewalker.com/forum/game-blades-gitriban-primal-state?page=62 <-- I think this is your old game thread?

We probably won't be pulling forum data over with a script because the data there is horribly incomplete, but we will be keeping the HTML copy up for people to copy/paste to pick up old conversations if the data is there. Eventually I may be able to do a pull for forum threads that we have complete data for / are really critical to pull over but that's a pretty big maybe at the moment.

For messages: Are you talking private messages or something else?

If he has an account here with the new database you might be able to get a PM to him that way? We pulled all the user accounts over that we had.

Any feedback regarding the wiki yet? Without links between the different entries I find it rather awkward to use.
Should we somehow organize ourselfs to rework/reorganize the wiki entries?

Thanks Clueless! My first

Thanks Clueless! My first impression of the restored wiki is...

I don't see anything there!

I needed to search to find any content. For example, searching "Outlands" gave me an unformatted wall of text.

So there's definitely information there, but only if you know what to search for. I am guessing there are all kinds of entries I cannot find because I wouldn't know what to search for.

Ok, sounds like the next load

Ok, sounds like the next load will need to (if possible) put together some category pages and the like as well. I think I can get that added to the script and ready for another test load this friday/saturday. Looks like we've got as much feedback for this round as we're gonna get. So - hang tight and let's see what I can get in for rnd 2. :)
