Will the WIKI come back too?

Or is that asking too much?

There is a new WIKI that has been started :http://newmars.wikispaces.com/

which has seen a lot of good work!

Re: Will the WIKI come back too?

Our tentative plans are to recover the content from wiki.newmars.com and post it into marspedia.org, which is another project of the Mars Society.

Interesting!

since the content was GPL, I guess it won't give too much trouble.

Re: Will the WIKI come back too?

Rxke, yeah, I got the database and as jburk said I plan to post it on Marspedia (possibly under a NewMars category for topics that were more NewMars specific, but most of it was general Mars stuff and I wouldn't be surprised if it was replicated over there already, I haven't got to the database yet).

I hope in the future we can have links to the wiki and whatnot under the logo, but yeah.

Fortunately, since the Wiki wasn't used as much as the forums were, despite it being out of date, it *should* have basically everything that was there before with a few minor losses.

Re: Will the WIKI come back too?

All new work is going into Marspedia

Re: Will the WIKI come back too?

Points for anybody if they can remind us what “Liberum Olympia” is a reference to. Otherwise I’ll need to dig my Mars trilogy books out of storage.

Re: Will the WIKI come back too?

Library of Olympia, an allusion to the library of Alexandria. This forum was supposed to be a free space to discuss development of the wiki.
