I doubt confluence would work well with simple machines. It would also have heavier system requirements, it's a big java app. It was more of an example of what else could be out there...even in the commercial world of software.

I did come across 1 interesting wiki after a couple more searches. It's called docuwiki. I remember looking at it briefly years ago, I ruled it out because I was set on having a wiki that stores its data in mysql - it uses files on the file system. But it does look incredibly easy to integrate its authentication module with a simple machines database (or any database for that matter)...and the maintainers claim flat files are an advantage for scalability.

https://www.dokuwiki.org/plugin:authmysql

Anyway, as long as whatever you guys are doing has a good search feature and the information is easy to find, it'll be a great information repository, which is really all that's important IMHO.

I've PMed some people about the Confluence plugin. I'm intrigued by that. Docuwiki still has some syntax to learn that isn't bbcode/Markdown so I'm not thrilled with that idea. I'm looking into it more :D. Thanks for the suggestions.

Oh, I didn't mean to imply there's an integration with confluence. Sorry for the confusion! Or did you find something?

If someone here is a java wizard, I think you can still develop plugins with the plugin SDK even without the confluence source code (though don't quote me on that.)

There was a discussion in the clack wiki thread that I'd thought I'd link here in case there's been a change in the tides. Previously it seemed that there was no interest in helping work on the wiki.

And that goes for anyone else. While the mediawiki is up, you can get am account and start helping. All I ever see is people complain about the wiki going away. Don't want it to? Prove to me that it's useful and viable for geekhack. Yes I am the head off the wikiteam/Keepers of the faith so I can ask the admins and mods to keep the status quo. And of course I'm sure the team will let me and everyone else know their opinion as as well.

Maybe a list of wiki articles that have been updated since this was introduced would be warranted.

For some reason, I'm not getting info when I try and see the most recent changes in the Wiki. I will say that if I recall correctly that the last huge rash of changes was when I was working on the Clack Wiki.



I've updated the second post to better reflect what the team has been working on.

I would like to build/maintain a professional services area of the wiki.
Articles/Guides explaining what a mod is and how to do it can link to people that will do the mods for you etc etc.
Please let me know if your interested after the wiki is in place.

Those sound great! You can start those threads now in Post Wiki Workshop and I'll make sure they get moved into the new Wiki. And we can migrate your thread that you have now for Professional Services over as well!

just caught up to this-- big task guys

thanks for taking on the endeavor.................hopefully after you guys get it out and running we won't lose like when GH crashed a couple years ago

that was pretty brutal for a while :-\

whatever us dweebs can provide to help let us know

one thing i have enjoyed is a few of you guys, GH'rs have uploaded video and audio relating to particular switch sounds and effects. that would be pretty informative if we could round that out even further; example cpt and his KS with blue alps, model m's (bolt modded - non bolt modded) and so forth...........

there is a lot already available on youtube, etc.

just a suggestion-- nothing more

I have a suggestion: open up editing the wiki to the userbase, moderate it, keep certain pages locked down and get it growing. There would be some quality issues, but those could be ironed out I think that's better than having massive voids. Even stub entries with external links would be better than no page at all.

I think they've given up on the wiki, most people use the one over at deskthority.

Before I left the Curator posting, I was told that rkinze was ready to roll something out. Jdcarpe and the admin/mod team would know better than I at this point.

It would. GH has a solid community and double the users (I just made this up from the online accounts on both sites right now), we'd make short work of a community wiki and I think it would be good for the community. We could make it a GeekHack wiki in the sense that there can be pages about the community included - such as for Brobots etc.

Any mods or admins reading this thread? I'll have to check that list you made CPTBadAss.

As the Keepers have been disbanded (at least for now), should this thread no longer be sticky (for now)?
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Yes, the name was changed from Keepers of the Faith to Curators. I am the last one, as the rest quit.

I may be moving to a different staff position, since the Curator role can probably be rolled into another job or team.

Yeah, it will probably be archived with the other Keeper/Curator stuff when that happens.

It's a shame.  I guess GH just wasn't ready for that kind of thing.

If the wiki ever does get revived, I would be DTE (down to edit).

So have we given up on the idea of a Wiki?

This is why I populated the old wiki with the "[Artisan Services] - Directory"
I plan to move it to the new wiki whenever it is available.

What do you think of a "wiki" in this style? This was my effort to present information in a logical way.

Yes, and really not much of a need to overlap information, I don't think.

It's ok, but it's still missing a lot and some good links.  There's also the problem that some of the guides have newer counterparts, some of which are better in some areas maybe worse in others.  A proper wiki gives more room to add and adjust things, to make it so people are better informed, and make it so people don't have to go digging through sometimes 50+ pages to find something helpful.

It wasn't supposed to be all-inclusive. That was just a test of how to organize the information without having 20+ stickies at the top of MST.

What's the point of having a proper wiki, when DT has one? Having the info indexed in a post, and pointing to another thread allows for the information to be thoroughly discussed.

If people want a true wiki, that's fine. I didn't think there was enough interest to get one going.

I was always an advocate of updating the DT Wiki to have a "real Wiki" and then having a Wiki entry like what JD has which is more based on making guides. Like how to do a bolt mod for Model Ms.

I think CPTBadAss better states what I'm trying to say JD.  A collection of guides like that is all fine and good, but a wiki with guides is better.  In the article, you can point to other threads, but also have a how-to that can be updated or that contains multiple ways of doing something.  It's an easier to use and easier to search format.

Not only that, but if and when a photo is no longer valid in a thread, it's gone forever.  If you have a wiki, you can update them or host them onsite.  It makes for less data loss.

I get what you're saying about the keyboard wiki on DT too, but I also know there has been a lot of frustration with how things get handled there. It would be nice to have the option to update stuff here if we wanted to.

So, about that whole Wiki thing... Is it officially dead? Or as close around the corner as the GH60?

This sounds a good idea. Factual information should be kept separate and distinguished from guides; but both should have a place within a good wiki.
