    As you know the wiki page and v3/v4 archives have been inaccessible since the release of v5. Because kam switched hosts, I no longer have access to the server files. Zombo has been busy lately and will be away for a while. So, it will be quite some time before we can make those resources available. I ask the community to be patient and understanding. Things will work out.

    Zombo proposed that we could make a new wiki and transfer everything over once the other page is made accessible. If there are users that are interested in working on that project, we could make it happen.

    Thanks

    It's unfortunate, but I guess it can't be helped. I'd offer a hand, but work is really piling up. Maybe when I've got free time sometime.

    well that all depends on zombo probably. Seeing as Z said that zombo proposed we could do that nothing is set in stone yet.

    If there was a new wiki made I would contribute as much of my to it knowledge as I could.
    I also think that there should be a thread with moderators that we should post each page or edit we are wanting to make for them to check to see if all the information is correct and should be put into the wiki.
    If there is going to be a new one I'd like to request that it uses MediaWiki and not any other kind of shitty excuse for a wiki, like wikia

    Just curious, how much information do you all have that are actually beneficial to read?

    I could do pages on basic and some stuff on more complex notation as well as general pages for tricks. I'd also be able to do pages on terminology. I'm sure there's also more than that but I just can't think of at the moment

    I'm willing to help copy over old stuff from the cached wikis and format/clean up things.

    The wiki is a pretty integral part if we want to attract more beginners to advance in penspinning, so I'll help out as much as I can.

    We might as well update the wiki in the process, there were a couple of renditions after that cache

    It's good you want to help, i am sure any information you seek in the wiki can be asked and directed at one of our members. You can ask me anything of course.

    Zkhan! It's been a couple months. All the chaotic WT stuff is over. (Or should be)
    Time to let us update wiki.

    Zkhan never said to wait until WT was over. If you really want to update the wiki, we need to start anew. I recommend we form a private group somehow, via skype or some other communication outlet.

    The first thing we should do is find a suitable wiki to use. Then we need to decide what we are going to put on the wiki. I already have a basic outline of what we should have. I don't really want to use a free wiki because most of them are cluttered with ads. (Of course i have ad-block so i don't really care, but still i never liked the outline of Wikia especially)

    After which we should form subgroups, based on knowledge and experience

    Would love to hear thoughts from everyone else.
