    Do we need a new Wolf3D wiki?

    Old one doesn't seem to work or get updates....
    Even Keen community has a wiki....

    We should. I'll gladly add entries, simple stuff such as mods (how many levels they have, author and how old they are) and let all opinions be.

    Is there a free service that allows wiki creation?
    How can it be done practically?

    I remember trying to make a wiki long time ago and I recall it was free.

    What happened to Dugtrio's wiki?
    http://wolfsource.dugtrio17.com/wiki/index.php?title=Main_Page

    Well, never mind...any free wiki?

    For example Keen wiki is here: http://www.shikadi.net/keenwiki/Main_Page
    They seem to use this host (it's the same host Dugtrio used):
    http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki

    Should I register a free account?

    Is it free?

    Doom wiki http://doom.wikia.com/wiki/Entryway uses Wikia, which is free service.
    Does it look ok?

    There is a wolf3d wiki at Wikia already...wolf3d name is taken.
    http://wolfenstein.wikia.com/wiki/Wolfenstein_Wiki

    Should we join that one - or make new one (Wolf3Dmod or ModWolf3D for example)

    That's not a Wolf3D wiki, that's just WOLFENSTEIN as the brand, including stuff from RTCW etc.

    What's wrong with the Wolfsource Wiki? Don't we have control over it?

    All I notice is that no one is updating it any more.

    No, we don't have control - you can't post new mods or articles.
    Can you make a post about "SplitWolf"? Try.

    This wiki is basically dead.

    Yes, why not...but let's be more active there....unupdated wiki is like no wiki at all...

    Can the community help out to insert new latest mods in there, and add details to existing mods?

    http://wolfsource.dugtrio17.com/wiki/index.php?title=Main_Page

    Anyone having problems using it?

    Just remember it's a wiki, so internal terms should be links. ([[term]] or [[user:username|username]])

    I have issues logging in. After registering, I get no email (yes, I checked my spam folder). I tried two emails to no avail.

    When I registered, the wiki didn't tell me it sent me an email - and trying to tell it to resend did nothing. I am using Chrome.

    Wiki is interlinked type of media.
    To create new page you need to insert it as a "stub" (empty term) in some existing page, thus linking new info to the wiki.
    In your case - you can link it (edit) to profile of a wolfer who made the mod - in his list of mods made. Or you can put yourself as credit in one of existing mods - to create your profile.
    Stub is written like this: [[new stub name]] for general term, and [[User:UserName|UserName]] for a person.

    After "stub" is created - you can freely edit it.

    To see a list of existing "stubs" that need community help in filling them - here:
    http://wolfsource.dugtrio17.com/wiki/index.php?title=Category:Stubs

    Guys - please help to fill the wiki.

    Dean, myself, Thomas - could edit it. So this might be a problem with new registrations or problem with some browsers...are you sure you need a registration email? Try to log in.

    I use Internet Explorer, so I don't think it's a browser problem. Tried logging in without email confirmation several times, but didn't work either. Oh well.

    Be patient, all.

    Deathshead (or one of his subsequent aliases) is usually on a posting rampage about two weeks of each year.

    Trust me, he will return :-)
