The Wiki (www.pug406.com/wiki)

... is down ("Account Suspended") again.

Is there anything we can do to keep this afloat? Possibly host it on the same server as the 406oc.co.uk, for all the additional traffic it would get (by which I mean it's only us that really use it, I reckon :))

Send a PM to Nick, Graeme. I don't know what sort of hosting deal he has, but he's the man to speak to.

was there anything actually useful on it?
<steve_earwig> I think this forum is more about keeping our cars going with minimal outlay than giving our cars more reason to go bang

This last week I had been sticking stuff up on it - paint code information (including photos of 406s in as many colours as I could find), information on production numbers of the Coupe, information on alloy wheels...

The only way the Wiki can improve is if people actually stick things on there - most of what I was doing was setting up tables for people to update with actual information.

Like I've said before, and will say again - if someone has something useful they want put up on the Wiki and they just don't know how or don't have the time, then send it to me and I'll slap it on there some evening.

As it is, I think it's actually hosted by Nutski, but the account keeps getting suspended.

I'll PM Nick about it, but what's his username on the forum - is it just "nick"?

ditto

I can also acquire some hosting for it if necessary.

Send Nick another PM, he did mention it to us after you mailed him.
He's pretty snowed under with exams at the moment, that may explain no reply.

Hi guys, there seems to be a bit of a spam problem on the wiki recently, I just reverted the main page after it being spammed by the user "Deweyzohil". Might be good to update MediaWiki (latest is 1.17.0) and possibly look at increasing restrictions on user registration.

I thought I'd finally stick my car on there today. Got as far as the YOURUSERNAME bit where you put in your name & see the blank page, but when I tried to edit it, I got this:

Permission error

I can't see your user ID in the User List page. Have you actually created an account? If so, what user ID did you use?

There's a very small link in the top-right of the Wiki page that says "log in/create account"; if you can go through that process then you should be able to set up an account. Best bet is to use your forum user ID when signing up.

EDIT: Just noticed the Wiki is FULL of spam sh*t again (bloody bastards, ruining the internet). I will check later to see if I can prune out some of it.

Just cleared out some new spam added today, have just installed a spam blacklist which i'm hoping will cut this down a bit but have a few more things to add like Captura on registration etc
