Site Dead[edit]

Just incase anybody tries looking through the internet for this fucking website, all I can offer you is that you try looking at There is a feature where all pages archive under a domain are shown, you can try that. My experience is that only two links 'down' were archived by's bot.

The site would never answer email no matter what[edit]

8/23/06 all of elwiki is down.

A month and a half ago I tried to contact them asking about wikis. No email answer. I signed up because they had the best deal--shortest name and mediawiki. They also appear not to have a space limit.

No one who runs the site has answered email after months and about 200 emails later.

nico @[part of it removed] = the return email address I got from registration. Upon emailing them, they claim that they only opened a test wiki on elwiki and have no idea on anything. = the email address on their website. It never answers email, ever. = the only whois contact of their site. It never answers email, ever. may be run by the person who blogs at . Both sites hide any way to contact them behind and then again through . and = the two email addresses of They never answer email, either.

I have also left a comment on the blog A day later, the site went down for 2-3 days in response (suspicious coincidence) and when it came back up my comment vanished. So I left about 5 comments this time. Now my old comment has reappeared and maybe I didn't see it--I don't know.

You are wrong. That backup is about (Greek Wikipedia). Wikimedia Foundation does not host any backups of wikifarms. emijrp 02:09, 8 April 2011 (PDT)

ElWiki down[edit]

It seems that all ElWikis are down now for several days, right ? Before, I could hope that after one or two days everything is available again.

Does anybody know something about that ? -- 07:59, 6 August 2007 (EDT) (Robert, Munich)

So, it looks like Elwiki is dead forever ? I downloaded a 200 MB XML-file with an article-backup from somewhere, but I don't know, what to do with it. Maybe the answer to this would be interesting for several people. (Hello Kuwait !) -- 07:36, 15 December 2007 (EST) (Robert, Munich)

The file you downloaded is from the section above? That is not, but emijrp 02:13, 8 April 2011 (PDT)

elwiki came back and was up with an apology at the top of their site for the down-time until 6/3/2008.. now it looks like is owned by somebody else, so I'm guessing they're really gone now.

So... anything hosted there is gone with it? crap... 12:33, 16 September 2008 (EDT)
