Where are all the submissions? None of mine are there. In fact, where is the wiki? All I see are forum style pages. The name should be changed if that's it because that's not a wiki.

Unfortunately, the TinWiki is in an "unrecoverable" state, sitting on a damaged server, with damaged data in the database, on an old-format database not compatible with any of our current servers.

The site had been sitting on our oldest server, and a combination of corrupt entries in the database, bad sectors on the system hard drive, and version 3.x MySQL database was a 1-2-3 knockout punch. About three weeks ago, I spent several agonizing days trying to find a way to recover and convert the database without loss of data... no success.

Last night, the server failed hard and for good.

However, we do have a plan to restore most (if not all) of the TinWiki articles, and update the core technology to be more compatible with ATS.

All but the damaged articles (9) have been saved in HTML files, and we're working on methods to get the content into a dedicated ATS forum that will eventually have Wiki-like functionality, but be integrated with the ATS member database, and just as resistant to SPAM as the ATS board.

Stay tuned, more coming soon.

Thank you! It was driving me crazy that I couldn't find out what was going on so I gave up and had to ask. Ugh...when I think of all the work I did formatting, coding, photos, researching, writing for those articles. And so many others who toiled endlessly in there. Oh well, what can you do?

Bumping this, as I am still very curious to know what's going on with it. Anyone know?

wow... that is a real stab in the heart for the whole editor crew. My condolences to you all. Takes a lot of dedication and hard work to put wiki pages together, as well as organize and edit. I hope ATS management won't forget about this treasured archive.

Okay, that answers it for me.

I was wondering why there was no forum description, and why it only appeared to have (some) A-C articles.

Man, what a GREAT resource that appeared to be. Sorry, you guys.
