I’m curious how many people here are aware of the TWiT Wiki and actually use it. Judging from the number of edits made by people who aren’t me, I’m guessing it’s not many.
In the next few months, we’ll be migrating some stuff to a new server and the TWiT Wiki is among those to be migrated. The MediaWiki software is in desperate need of an update, so we’d likely do that around the same time. However, my question to you folks is… Is it worth it?
A decade ago, the wiki was edited by TWiT staff AND fans alike with additional details on show notes, information on shows, and a lot of other info. These days, I’ve been keeping the show info from getting too severely outdated, but there’s less than a handful of users who make any updates on a regular basis. The list of guests on This Week in Tech, All About Android arena results, and Ham Nation episode info, seem to be the only articles regularly updated by users. Lately, there have been more edits done by spammers than actual users!
So, before I spend a lot of time upgrading it and moving it to a new server, do any other people want to aid in maintaining this? Is there no interest anymore? Should we migrate essential info elsewhere and put it out to pasture? I’d like to hear what TWiT fans think about the wiki.
