What happened to SlackWiki.org?


Apologies if this is already common knowledge, but does anyone know what happened to SlackWiki.org? I was doing some googling about Slackware + cpu frequency scaling, found a link to the site, but was redirected to the main page. Further investigation revealed that all of the content has disappeared. Judging by the quality of the article (via Google's cache), this seems like a great loss to the community.

Any thoughts?

There's this on the SlackWiki homepage:

The data is still there, you need to use the Search box to find it. Any help copying the old data over here to the new Wiki would be greatly appreciated.
So the old information should still be available at http://slackwiki.org/old/.

Thanks!

I swear that notice wasn't there when I looked two hours ago.

It's a relief that all the data is still there--I lost a Mediawiki install a couple of years back due to DB problems.

Well, let's show everyone our Slackware community spirit.

The old links looked like this:
http://slackwiki.org/CPU_Frequency_Scaling

They've all been archived and now look like this:
http://slackwiki.org/old/index.php/C...quency_Scaling

Once migrated to the new wiki, they'll look like this:
http://slackwiki.org/index.php/CPU_Frequency_Scaling

I see, ibm5_25, that you've already migrated this particular article.

Let's see how fast we can all move everything from the old wiki to the new one!

The link style is fixed to look like the "old" wiki now (meaning the 'index.php' in the middle isn't needed any more).

Thanks for the effort on migrating stuff; I moved a few over yesterday, but no idea how many are still missing.
