    Quoted from ralphwiggum:

    I don’t disagree at all. It is just unfortunate that guys like Hibler that are the true backbone of that site, are now in a tough spot because of something that is beyond his control. That is a ton of time for these guys they aren’t going to get back if the ship can’t be righted.

    Considering Robin and Pinside are willing and able to absorb Pin wiki it will almost certainly get “righted” unless the offer is rebuffed. Pinwiki could be so much more than it is with gaining such a large number of members and infrastructure.

    I'm happy to see the issues being resolved and the site getting the attention it deserves.

    #258 7 days ago

    Wow; I admit I had honestly given up considering the time period involved... happy to be wrong. Sounds like a lot of work is going into trying to fix this once and for all and it sounds like some positive steps have been figured out for the future!

    I look forward to checking out the site next weekend to help with my Sorcerer project.

    On behalf of Casey and all of the contributors to PinWiki, thank you all for your patience. Together, we have a lot of work invested in the Wiki. I personally use it all the time. And I know how it is to have a resource unavailable when you really need it.

    I'm also appreciative when folks let me know how the Wiki can be improved. I add to it as I come across oddball issues. I want to restructure the Williams 3-7 section since it doesn't match the "look and feel" of the rest of the Wiki. Sounds simple...but it takes quite an effort working within the MediaWiki editor/structure.

    Thanks again.

    This is a temporary situation. The images must all be re-vetted. As is spelled out in the blog, Casey expects them to be back on line by the end of this weekend.

    Latest blog post...

    This will be a short one, as I am preparing a more thorough "Going Forward: the next 10 years of the wiki" type post.

    All uploads have been vetted and brought back online, this includes all archived uploads (the beauty of MediaWiki is that both uploads and page edits keep a history, so any time an upload has been changed (original was blurry, too small size, etc) the original gets archived in case of accidental removal, something malicious, etc.

    With that said, uploads are still temporarily disabled, and are still going to be until some time later this week so that we can verify a few more security settings and configuration items. This will still adhere to the 2/16 timeline originally placed on it.

    With the rebuild of the website, caching of pages has been temporarily disabled to flush some things through the system. What this means for you is that page loading speed may be impacted, however within the next day or two it will pick back up.
