"Thank you all for digging in and working on this!    Although I do think it is important that this remain a fan run endeavor, please know that Looney Labs is happy to throw in a bit of financial support if this is ever needed...  I…"

"Now that we have movement with icehousegames.org wiki, I'd rather focus the attention to that, when it's open to public editing again. Which should be, with luck and time on our side, within seven days. No guarantees on the timeframe…"

"I have signed up (MyCakey) and started to add a couple pages, using the Icehouse wiki to work from. I don't have loads of time to do much, but will aim to focus all my procrastination in this direction."

"It's working now. At least we have access to the archives again!"

"I just realized that I already have an old wikia.com account I'd forgotten about; I am goulo there. I think a single account maps across whatever wikis have given it access there (right?) so you can give me editing access, thanks!"

"Brian sent me the database today, so I'll be taking a stab at getting it upgraded and working locally, then I can send him what I have back to deploy live. Apparently the domain name Icehousegames.org is under someone else's control, and…"

""Also, icehousegames.org is having DNS issues this weekend, so that's no good. I don't know if we can rescue content from there. Here's hoping!" Yikes, that would be a huge tragedy for the community! Wow. In the middle of…"

"Thanks for working on this! I did a lot of work with fixing dead links in the past (and finding games that had gone missing or offline). One of the things that I'd recommend going forward is to simply post the game rules on the wiki. We did a…"

"Well, we even have a game called Pyramid Scheme. :)"

"After trying Wikidot and being unsatisfied, I checked out Wikia. It's VASTLY better, and actually based on MediaWiki. Let's go with that.  So, without further ado... >>> pyramids.wikia.com <<< I've got…"

Brett Taylor replied to Brett Taylor's discussion 'Pyramid Arcade and community resources?'
"I'd really prefer to use a hosted service like Wikidot or Wikia, mainly because they would fight spam and keep the site up.  I've spent a few hours today playing with Wikidot (because of the reasons you said), and have found it a…"

"Heh. According to their terms of service, they prohibit "pyramid schemes"."

"BTW I just noticed/remembered that Decktet has a nice looking wiki http://decktet.wikidot.com/ so perhaps wikidot is a good alternative. Looks less "commercial/spammy" than wikia. And perhaps there might even be some cross-pollination…"

Brett Taylor replied to Brett Taylor's discussion 'Pyramid Arcade and community resources?'
"Good point. I don't know how powerful Wikia is, but I think the main point for this site existing is discovering new games you can play. I haven't had a deep good play with Wikia or Semantic MediaWiki yet, but KISS "Keeping It Simple,…"

"Basing it on mediawiki still means you or some successor will need to periodically maintain/upgrade the underlying mediawiki software, right? Especially if you're wanting to customize the mediawiki installation (that seems kind of a possible…"
