Wikis that require registration with a forum account, like dev-scene.com, have been troublesome for me in the past. Wiki editors who don't post to the forum may lose editing privileges when the forum admins don't check a user's wiki contributions and think any account that hasn't posted to the forum deserves to be deleted for inactivity.
Discussion about the site's wiki, including bugs/issues encountered
I'd be more than happy to set these up if the overall community/owners decide upon it. Sadly someone already owns snesdev.com, but if folks decide on a unique domain for each of them, I'd be happy to purchase them through my registrar with no expectations from the rest of the community.blargg wrote:Yes, please don't try to have one Wiki cover multiple systems. wiki.nesdev.com, sneswiki.nesdev.com, gbwiki.nesdev.com would be adequate URLs for separate Wiki sites, IMO.miau wrote:Might be a little confusing, though, if you're using the same domain. If you plan to register another domain it might be best to choose a universal enough name that does not exclude other consoles.
There's two conditions where I think that might happen:tepples wrote:I've seen cases on multiple shared hosting providers where even a blank .htaccess in a folder would cause all requests from that folder to return 500 Internal Server Error. Is that related?koitsu wrote:I won't be held responsible for someone breaking the entire site due to .htaccess errors though, especially since the errors go into our server httpd-error.log which isn't something users have permission to look at.
1) A server administrator setting up httpd.conf in such a way that .htaccess files found anywhere other than certain <Directory> sections would result in Apache returning HTTP 500. This would be a "side effect" of the configuration the admin set up; Apache's actual error (in the error log) in this case would be something like "htaccess not permitted here".
2) I remember long ago reading some reports of issues with .htaccess "stuff" on Apache for Win32, but sadly I don't remember what that "stuff" was. Windows (any release) really isn't a "server product" in my opinion. It's just years of hackery...
I've a small comment on this issue, but it might be a major overkill. If we were to discuss about more than NES development, wouldn't it make more sense to have a domain name that doesn't explicitly describe "NES development"? Maybe something like "Classics Development" (although people may confuse it with the content-less Classic Game Dev)?
Well I have a french Wikipedia account, but whenever I move to English Wikipedia I get logged out, and my account don't work any longer. I always found that stupid, but anyways I can't do major modifications on English Wikipedia because I don't master this language.
Life is complex: it has both real and imaginary components.
