ReamerPunch, i've sent you a PM about your log in info for the Encyclopedia.

I'm sure sLaughterMed will get back to you as soon as he can.

I'd add you but I've been out of it for a bit and not sure how he wants people added.

Def

I just add people the way you added me. I'm currently working on allowing people to register themselves (or at the very least fixing the "request a passcode" function") but so far no dice.

It's probably a safety feature built in to keep some crazy person from damaging the wiki :D That way there is some control over who can and can't edit it ;)

If not, there should be a way to warrant that not everyone can register and start making changes. It can lead to some "destruction", even if not intentional.

Yeah I just started editing the other day and if I hadn't been careful there is no telling the chaos I could have caused :ahhh :D

This raises a question: is there any backup of the database so far? Something we can revert to, if need be? Or to allow us to recover some specific records/pages?

Yeah, letting just anyone in is obviously not a good idea. However, It would be nice if what the wiki offered is what actually happened (for example, clicking the "request a passcode" currently does nothing). I'm working on making that button actually send a request somewhere (even if it is just to me, or just to Grant), or removing the option altogether, and just stating they need to PM or email me a request.


This raises a question: is there any backup of the database so far? Something we can revert to, if need be? Or to allow us to recover some specific records/pages?

The wiki has keeps backups of recent versions, so if someone makes a major boo boo, an admin can come in and revert to an older version. Obviously someone still has to tell an admin, but it is something.

Grant said earlier that the wiki is also backed up daily (hopefully offsite), so if the server farm that MT.O, SAKwiki and the MT Encyclopedia are on blows up, we still have everything saved from the day before somewhere else.

So rather than asking Zoidberg to keep editing the first page, I created this page on the Wiki itself:

http://wiki.multitool.org/tiki-index.php?page=Template

To navigate there from the front page, simply click the "Page Template" Link at the top of the home page.

It contains a small "code library" with short descriptions for a lot of the simpler coding needed for formatting, as well being home to the Page Template. This way, the template can be adjusted as needed, and our resident zombie lobster can go skating or something instead

Hm, I see you should be able to do most edits just with the basic account. Is this correct? Poncho, are there any problems you found while editing that you couldn't edit out with your account?

If so, we can bump you two to admin status. >:D

So can I upload some of my images from my pc as long i dont use a URL? Or do I have to use pics just from the gallery? Unless I didn't see them, there is a lot of SOGs missing.

Feel free to upload your pics. :tu: Not sure, but there should be a gallery for SOG so place them there. And maybe a special subgallery for each model if you can. As long as they are your pics, it's fine. If they are from other members, ask them for permission first.

Here's the SOG gallery

http://wiki.multitool.org/tiki-browse_gallery.php?galleryId=6

Also, try to limit the size of the pics to 1000px, the wiki software doesn't do auto resizing so well, actually, it doesn't do it at all. :facepalm:

And for anyone wanting to do Bucktools, we have Longbow's pics in the gallery.multitool.org. He has the most complete collection that I know of and has given us permission to use the pics, we only lacked the manpower and time to create those pages.

"Basic" users should have full editing permissions, and the abilities to upload images and files. I dont think they can roll back to previous editions of an article, but thats not really a vital feature anyhow.
