    Why doesn't the wiki look good? It essentially has the same visual style as the old one.

    Um. I don't give a crap how it looks. I don't think anyone goes to a wiki to see how it looks. Is that what you thought I was talking about?

    Content! Organization! (heaven forbid) A plan!

    Is that clearer?

    There is no plan. And basically no contributors.

    Would it be inappropriate to suggest we simply begin moving the old content to the new pages and worry about re-organization later?

    If the organization of the old wiki was so horrible, I would have expected at least some discussion (here, there, anywhere) about ideas for a new organization. After four months, I have not heard of any such discussion nor have we seen much progress in reintegrating the old content.

    I think re-organization is a fine idea, but it's the sort of thing that will take time and effort. An organizational discussion should begin by those with ideas and drive, or at least by those with comments and opinions. In the meantime, we can all benefit by integrating the content we have with the new structure.

    I'd be willing to take a few pages a day. After a while, I suspect others will join in once work starts going again.

    Thoughts?

    Hmm... The new look is nice, but what about the actual content on http://wiki.beyondunreal.com ? It seems harder to find information on anything with the new wiki layout. Using the search box doesn't get me anywhere now, I have to use the Offline Wiki to get around places.

    Bot Support?

    First,

    This link currently results in a database error:
    Bot Support
    EDIT: So does this one:
    Strategic Bots

    Code:
    A database query syntax error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software. The last attempted database query was:
    
        (SQL query hidden)
    
    from within function "MediaWikiBagOStuff::_doinsert". MySQL returned error "1213: Deadlock found when trying to get lock; try restarting transaction (christy)".
    But also,

    How's it going? :)

    If that error doesn't go away, ambush Haarg on IRC (I think he's on the ETG #unrealwiki channel, otherwise on #beyondunreal) and tell him.

    And that other thing: People should really start contributing. It's a wiki, FFS! You (the community) are the authors. I don't know what people are waiting for.

    Where's the wiki today?

    I just get redirected to the BU front page. (or the BU 404 page)
