The website is inheriting a wiki... congratulations.

This is not altogether good news. Unfortunately it turned out the user (will edit in asap) that posted in here earlier about the wiki turned out to be a closet comic book arch villain. And to make matters worse, the Wikia website or whatever we found out was an utter laughing stock when it came to dealing with said arch villain or ethical dilemmas in general.

Anyway, the only ethical thing to do was abandon the Wikia wiki, so we had to install a branch here... which will basically have to compete until the wikia wiki dies out in shame or implodes  upon itself.


I'm sort of in the process of documenting some examples of the utterly shocking abuses of authority and basic bad taste that went on during the final days of the attempt to salvage the original wiki. So don't be surprised if I archive some evidence in this thread.

 
An attempt to explain everything would be ridiculous at this point, but we will include extensive accounts in the new wiki once it goes full on public.


The new wiki will be completely free in the same way this forum is. Only unethical activity will be discouraged. Arguments, high jinks, whatever is all encouraged of course.

Technically 2/3rds of the administration staff will be defecting, but that really only amounts to me and the other sysop (of 3) ...the original founder quit leaving the wiki without a Bureaucrat (but he wasn't helping in the first place)


The wiki will eventually be here (http://wiki.digitaldevildb.com/wiki/) ...for editing that is. Reading for the general public will be at http://www.digitaldevildb.com/wiki/.

But until our domain transfer goes thru is currently accessible here (http://www.swordofmoonlight.com/wiki.digitaldevildb.com/wiki/)


The backup of the image files we got was incomplete (bad file I guess) ...I'm in the process of requesting a complete backup.

^It's possible importing the image files will require overwriting the wiki. So don't bother editing it yet or registering.


PS: There will be some things I will have to fix on an individual basis to match the Wikia install environment, but the wiki should work fine as soon as the image files are all there (though these things will look wrong until I can hunt them all down)

The wiki is pretty well setup now: http://wiki.digitaldevildb.com/wiki/Megami_Tensei_Wiki

We don't expect whole lot of resistance in shifting the focus of development to this wiki (versus megamitensei.wikia.com)


Just need to setup a wiki icon. I'm thinking the cool "Devil Busters Busters" scans Jessi' posted will be fitting.

Hurah! The wiki pages are back: http://www.digitaldevildb.com/wiki/Kerberos

Still, thanks to Google's evil ass, no search engine (so it's basically useless)

You can of course search the wiki at http://wiki.digitaldevildb.com/wiki/

While I drive my self nuts trying to find a replacement for Google doh
