I think this article should stay as a warning to wiki users that they can't guarantee a wiki farm will keep its wikis online. I hope removing the delete notice was OK. Proxima Centauri 15:57, 26 October 2008 (EDT)

I agree, but I'm not sure about this link. It is not very informative (now). It seems they removed all the comments from the page. [Update: Actually the link I had in mind was this one, although everything I said about the other page is true of this one. I believe this to be the correct link because I had it in my wiki before the information disappeared.] (I checked and Google cache and they have excluded the original page from appearing there.) I however have it in me little brain here. [Moved recollections to my wiki.] I left the following comment tonight, but I'm betting this is just some way of gathering email addresses and site traffic now (notice there are no comments appearing):
"What happened to all the comments that used to be on this page? Did you have server crash? ;) You know that says nothing but 'It works', now. What works exactly?"
I say we instead link to a mirror of the original page or (if that can't be found) a link that describes what happened. If none other exists, maybe I will make one from memory. If my comment doesn't appear soon, I would say the link constitutes spam, but I wouldn't delete the link however, I would just tell people not to bother commenting and post also a link (from my wiki) that describes what they removed from the blog. ScibbleWiki was almost as good as Referata is, before this incident. And at least ScribbleWiki had a place for people to share information about it, but now they are trying to hide what they did, while continuing to profit from advertising; using the popularity their blog has gotten from their loosing the data of many who put too much trust in their service.

I posted the following comment on the correct "downtime" part of the blog, so I'll see whether or not they will post it. "This page used to have all a great number of comments made by you and your customers when you lost their wikis. Many of us have linked to this page because it used to have some historical value. Why did you remove all the comments from this page?" Lumenos 18:37, 11 August 2009 (EDT)

Looks like a good idea. Proxima Centauri 03:27, 12 August 2009 (EDT)

They posted the comments and said it is under new ownership. I'm working on a historical page anyway, that will be here (where it shouldn't be deleted even if this article is). When I get it up to par I'll link to it in the article. Lumenos 03:10, 14 August 2009 (EDT)

Anyone who has experience with Scribblewiki want to comment? Proxima Centauri 04:19, 14 August 2009 (EDT)


Hi all. I know most the wikis were lost due to lack of backups, but, have anyone got a list of the wikis and their descriptions? I would like to create an article for all those wikis. emijrp 04:41, 8 April 2011 (PDT)

A (probably) partial list is here. emijrp 07:54, 9 April 2011 (PDT)
