SNES Wiki is down again!!!

Post by Hamtaro126 » Mon Nov 06, 2017 12:29 am

This time the entry page at least has been errored out, and I dunno if everything is accessable anymore right now... Did someone try to hack it again?

Who is running the wiki, anyway? It needs a new install badly.

I've saved local copies of the 65816 reference and registers pages, but they look pretty bad without the stylesheets. I'll see if I can host them in a bit.

Sorry for the double post, but I think it's worth mentioning that I just checked today and it looks like it's back up with new software: https://wiki.superfamicom.org

Some articles may be missing: looks like there's a transfer going on.

The 65816 reference, oddly enough, is not listed in the Reference category but you can find it if you search for it: https://wiki.superfamicom.org/65816-reference

The tables have too low of a contrast. I can barely see the text in them.

Edit: Registers also missing from the Reference category. Can be found here: https://wiki.superfamicom.org/registers

OK, so it's just a change in the URLs to each article (and formatting not being properly ported over in some cases). Thanks for that correction! :)

Now, Except for the Main Page, it is a bunch of Error 502s...

Something is fishy!!!

I really wish I had made a copy of every page. Or at least the register page.

Hi,

I've got a "not so old" backup of the wiki, I made in case the official website comes down, which is the case now :)

I'm not sure I can publicly share it as it would probably be a copyright violation not allowed by the terms and conditions of the forum (and because I never read terms and conditions I can't be sure...)

But feel free to send a PM...

The super famicom wiki needs a mirror site.

I suppose we could still read nocash's page.

My mirrors of the CPU and register references are still up if anyone needs them.

Hi

By the way the wiki is available on the Way Back Machine.

Of course it's a bit slower, but it can help while the real site is down.

This helps to show why it's important to set a clear license for contributions to a wiki before you open it for edits. If permission is clear, someone can keep a mirror and throw it online while your site is down.
