Description

The original home of kayakwiki was set to read only since 2006, when the content was moved to kayakwiki.org and set-up on MediaWiki software. A key motivator for the move was that the original UseMod site on kayakforum.com got spammed into oblivion. The new system administrator put some effort in, and the content had progressed considerably on the newer MediaWiki site, including nice navigation structures and image features enabled by the superior software. However it has more recently disappeared (2008 some time?). Perhaps it is lucky after all then, that the original UseMod site still exists in read-only form, so the content is still available to be rescued, although this content is missing couple of years worth of edits!
