Reciva Users Wiki: closedown on 1st April ?
« on: 00:20:11 | 18 February, 2015 »
Looks like our Reciva Users Wiki, full of information, will lose its host in 6 weeks:

They sent me an email about it today.
I have requested an XMl export and Incan then put it somewhere else.
Perhaps Wikia is the place to put it.
There have been very updates over recent months - which is not a huge surprise - so an alternative idea would be to go with a more static location that does not allow collaborative updates (this then minimises the work required to occasionally remove spam but makes it harder to get changes inserted).

(Changed MediaWiki (software) to Wikia (big site that runs it - sister of Wikipedia)

I guess we could host it here? Any ideas on wiki software?

MediaWiki is what Wikipedia uses and is freely available (needs PHP and MySQL).
Challenge of running something like this is keeping it up to date with security patches etc (much like running BB stuff).

Some of these wiki installations are way bigger than the software that runs this forum. I'll take a look at what's around.
