Shut down wikis[edit]

We try to document wikis which have been closed as well as ones that are functional. So if you have two wikis with the same name or very similar ones, we don't want to delete the history of one of them and just replace them with the other but try to have entries on both. Can you explain a little about what's happening with these two similarly-named wikis? Koavf (talk) 12:41, 24 May 2017 (PDT)

@Koavf: The Admin Tools Wikia site has been shut down, as the requests for permissions page has been indefinitely fully protected. That's all I know about it, I haven't dug deeper since it doesn't appear to be active anymore. The Admin Tools Test Wiki is still active, although it's staff has been known to abuse username suppression (hiding names for reasons that shouldn't qualify). However, it is an active wiki for testing admin tools. -- Amanda (talk) 12:45, 24 May 2017 (PDT)
Sorry, it seems like it is live. Also, it doesn't seem to be named "Admin Tools Test Wikia". Koavf (talk) 22:05, 24 May 2017 (PDT)

Hosting[edit]

Have You tried 1&1? I've got web-space with 1&1 and MediaWiki is one of their "apps". Installation was a no-brainer. No extra costs, if You got webspace there already. --Manorainjan 14:58, 24 May 2017 (PDT)

I don't have web space there already. Can you link me to that site anyway? -- Amanda (talk) 14:59, 24 May 2017 (PDT)
Originally its a German company, but They got subsidiaries in USA as well: https://www.1and1.com/ --Manorainjan 15:02, 24 May 2017 (PDT)
I don't want recurring payments. I want just a one-time down payment that's a reasonable price, or no fee at all. Recurring payments are annoying and I don't feel like keeping track of them. Therefore, I will not accept any hosting site that requires recurring payments. -- Amanda (talk) 15:06, 24 May 2017 (PDT)
wp:There ain't no such thing as a free lunch. But Why not trying at Category:ShoutWiki? --Manorainjan 15:21, 24 May 2017 (PDT)
I've already tried ShoutWiki among other wiki farms and have been dissatisfied. -- Amanda (talk) 16:07, 24 May 2017 (PDT)
What was wrong with shoutwiki?--Manorainjan 17:10, 24 May 2017 (PDT)

(reset indent) A lot of things are wrong with ShoutWiki. I really don't want to discuss the entire list. -- Amanda (talk) 04:55, 25 May 2017 (PDT)

You could be writing Your experiences on Category:ShoutWiki#Features so that other people do not need to "reinvent the wheel" and find out for themselves. Basically that is, what we are here for, arn't we? --Manorainjan 06:15, 25 May 2017 (PDT)

Tell us more about yourself, please[edit]

Hello Amanda, I'm Sean - one of the 'crats.

You seem to have some interesting skills and ideas which we could gratefully use here on WikiIndex. Would you like to tell us what other wikis you use, and where you developed your skills? Looking forward to wiki-working with y. :-) Sean, aka Hoof HeartedAdmin / 'Crattalk2HH 17:15, 24 May 2017 (PDT)

Just to interject, Sean--I removed your Welcome template as I previously had it here myself but Amanda didn't want it. Koavf (talk) 17:25, 24 May 2017 (PDT)
I'm not currently active on any other public wikis. However, as noted on my user page and the discussion above, I am looking for a cheap to free host that allows unlimited configuration and such to start a wiki of my own. -- Amanda (talk) 04:55, 25 May 2017 (PDT)
