I did half wonder about it the other day, but for one, I don't personally want to take on more work running a wiki. I can host it yes, but beyond that I just do not have time to update it or post anything there.
A lot of information which is really "wiki information", like upgrading power supplies or jumper linsk for ROM etc, it is mostly posted on the forum and on my website already. But I would rather try and keep information all in one place rather than start splitting it off into more places.. If that makes sense..
A lot of guides on "how to's" are on my web side, albeit a bit of a mess. I didn't want to get into having a "3rd copy" of the same information. Not saying its a bad idea.. As obviously I do not have everything on my website..
I actually think it could be a good thing (considering the AF wiki is broken and outdated info!) , but I think it may not be realistic time wise to keep on top of it, unless someone can dedicate full time into its creation and maintenance. Someone would have to maintain it, and I would want all information posted vetted that it is correct and accurate before it being added. I don't want just to copy paste dump from the old Atari wiki as it is mostly old information and goes against my current research.. But of course there is lot of information which could be copy and pasted over..
I never updated the Atari wiki as for example, if I took out the parts about the "Bad DMA" and corrected it , basically saying they are not bad, all hell would rein at my door altering those pages. People were just happy to have it saying outdated information which is incorrect.. Which is again partly why I just left the whole setup.
I guess it really depends on how much information we are talking about and what type of information.. Copying the information out to the forum might be a little harder to find than a wiki, but is going to save a enormous amount of work I think.. And I think it will be a lot easier to maintain long-term just having the forum for information.. But of course these are just my thoughts as we have to think about long-term maintenance for all this..
Trying not to drift topic here.. but I can open up a sub forum, and you can copy all information over to that sub forum which is relevant to your project if it helps ?Smonson wrote: ↑Thu Jan 11, 2018 2:13 amMaybe we need to move on from that wiki, it's been down for years. I've found quite a few text files and useful posts here and there, but when you need to know something it'd be good if there was a single location to check, rather than hundreds of pages of old forum posts. I often miss stuff while searching.
