The original home of kayakwiki was set to read only since 2006, when the content was moved to kayakwiki.org  [dead link] and set-up on MediaWiki software, with its content released under the Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial Share Alike 2.5 license. A key motivator for the move was that the original UseMod Wiki site (with content released under no license) 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?); fortunately, the Internet Archive WaybackMachine has captured 653 urls for that domain. Perhaps it is lucky after all then, that the original UseMod Wiki 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!
