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. [more inside]

Hey! Have you taken a look at the MeFi Wiki travel guides
lately? As lots of MeFites of the Northern Hemispheric persuasion are gearing up for summer vacations, it would be great to have folks contributing again to the travel wiki by updating with travel AskMe threads. (Previously

There are a TON of Ask Me questions about basic home networking problems -- setting up wireless, why is my cable modem not working, how do I set up a wireless bridge, etc. Is anyone interested in working on a wiki page with common troubleshooting stuff related to that? Is that something that even should
go on the metafilter wiki?

I'd like to create a MeFi Wiki
page listing books that are frequently recommended in AskMe answers. Would anyone else be interested in such a resource and/or does anyone want to help out? [more inside]

So I started a Mefi Travel Guide
on the wiki, since AskMes about travel are pretty common.
I'm going to plug away at this over the next couple of months, but please feel free to contribute. I think it could be pretty neat!

I was experimenting with Google's search suggestions feature when I noticed that it gave some interesting results for "metafilter + [letter]". Since it returns the most popular search terms starting with that phrase, what you get for each letter is an A-Z listing of the most sought-after topics related to Metafilter. So without further ado, I give you... Metafilter A to Z

Is there a way to have MeFi Wiki "summary articles" (like this one
) appear permanently and visibly in a MeFi/MeTa/AskMe thread that they are linked to? [more inside]

I know this has been brought up before, but I believe that it's frustrating enough to deserve being brought up again. Why is the wiki so spam-ridden?
Every time I go to look at it, at least 75% of the things I click on are spam or "DeletedPage: This page was WikiSpam. "
Seriously, If nobody's going to put in the effort to keep the wiki spam-free, why even bother to have it, especially now that we have a FAQ?

It seems that the Metafilter Wiki @ http://www.mssv.net/wiki.cgi was taken over by Xanax online, which promptly trashed the whole place, the shitheads

The MetaFilter Wiki
is being destroyed by vandalbots.
As recently as yesterday I used it to look something up, but its brain has been mostly melted. Can it be rolled back to an earlier snapshot? And can you make it so that only registered MeFi users can edit it?

Is the website http://mssv.net/wiki.cgi?Home
just a blog or is there some connection between it and metafilter? I was just getting more background info and this one seemed a tad OTT. Please don't tell me there's people praying towards SF.
P.S. The search option could be much better. Sorry Matt.

Did last year's wiki fiasco spoil April Fools frontpages for good, or did I miss the party this year?

The Wiki/FAQ has been pornified. I'd revert it to a previous version but I can't seem to figure out how. Could someone who knows how this stuff works please revert it and then let us know how it's done? (AskMe or Meta, when in doubt take it to Meta)

it looks as though the metafilter wiki
has been spammed pretty badly by an online casino site, with several pages of info replaced with their url and some gibberish. i've emailed adrian but wonder if anyone else besides him might have a back up copy of the site.

Ok, funs over, the wiki code was totally killing the box. I just might keep it up for shits and giggles at a different location.

Okay, so we're having fun with the Metafilter April Fools Wiki, except, uhm, it doesn't work. :) At least not for me. I click 'Edit Page' and edit the page, but my edits are not saved. Or is it just that the db behind it all is just getting so hammered for all the junk and spam posts?
