The unofficial Metafilter Wiki, long hosted by Adrian Hon, has a new website and host - it's now at mefiwiki.com,
and I'm taking over hosting.
This switch gives it a sizable software and hardware upgrade. It should be easier to update, and more spam-resistant.

So, what's changed?
To resist spam, we've added some small speedbumps; now, when you create a new account, you will be asked an easy question about Metafilter, like "who's the tech guy? (two letters)". Soon, we may ask "who are you on Metafilter?"
Old links will automatically go to the right place on the new site; we made sure they worked because we hate breaking links.
I owe major thanks - "Major Thanks! *salutes*" - to a few people.
Adrian Hon hosted it and kept it running for over a decade! I only hope to keep it going as well as he did.
Thanks to RichardP, for spam-fighting and for an impressive battle plan for the switchover. The domain mefiwiki.com was his idea, and he kept on top of the various issues.
Thanks to Jessamyn, the wiki liaison for the mods, for encouragement and for the Mefi-specific questions for registration.
Go check it out!
