Everybody is welcome to collect knowledge, its very important to collect the knowledge because a lot of great peobles pass away already and nobody want that this knowlegde will be lost. I think i will clean out the 8Bit stuff, there is no interest from the community because there is the ABBUC Computer club with a lot of knowledge

Would suggest to translate it to english and put the english text in to this wiki ?
Instead of translating it into English, we should all learn German, since we're true Atari fans!

The fact the wiki has been down for several months worries me a lot.

Data may be obsolete, but if it doesn't come back we can't fix it -_-

There is a lot of information that may be better on a wiki (with refs to one or many post on different forums).

I don't know if there's a way to backup it from the client side.

Yes, worries me as well. Even if it would eventually get fixed, I would still like to see more people having admin access to it, otherwise we'll soon find ourselves in the same situation again. So many people wanting the wiki back but still after many months, nothing...

Dal hasn't forgot about it.. He has a lot going on in his world right now and the forum has basically taken a backseat. I would assume it could be some months before he looks at this..

But I do agree that the wiki does have some useful information should be online properly. This is why think it is always good to have a second copy of each resource in case this type of thing happens.

I am not a huge part of AF anymore as people know. I mean I could host the wiki on my own server if it would help, but don't think anyone would really like that idea :twisted:

Not really sure what information is useful there which isn't online on some other site anyway ?

Thanks..

I can host the pages no problem.. but I already offered to help Dal a few weeks ago asking if he could give me access to the server so I could try and get the wiki up and running.. He seemed ok with idea, but still waiting for him to give me access..
