If I knew how to do a clean up, I'd love to do that.

So...been awhile, and I'm curious, any plans to revive DescentiaPedia again, WillyP?

I ask, because for a project I may be working on in the near future, I'm going to have to be reviewing my Descent continuity, and I figure I might as well compile it for the reference of others while I'm at it.

But if there aren't any revival plans at present, that's okay too. :)

It will be a big project to remove all those users and I would need to insure that new ones aren't registering while I was doing it. Instead my ultimate plan would be to use the article system here, even though that isn't a wiki. If you like to post articles, let me know and I'll set you up.

Also, Reactor is going offline on Feb. 10, due to a server upgrade that will break the script it runs on. That shouldn't be too hard to fix, but I want to move that to Articles also.

For now, I am concentrating on my business site which also runs on the same script as Reactor (NucleusCMS) and that one I'm upgrading it to MODx CMS, as well as redesigning it to be mobile device friendly.

But honestly, I've been dragging my heals on DescentiaPedia because I'm not looking forward to removing, one at a time some... uhm what was it, like 40,000 or so... spam registrations.

WillyP can't you just do some raw database calls to remove the users? Surely that would be way faster, even it takes some studying.

Yes I thought of that and it is something I need to look into. And maybe the newest version will have better user management.

Is it better to have it as a separate wiki, than to have it integrated here in the article system?

It depends on which you'd prefer doing WillyP, since you're the guy that's making it happen. But I'll admit using the article system would mean it's on-site, and thus easier to find by those who'd be interested in it.

Speaking of...Reactor's still up? Then where the devil is it? Because I haven't seen any sign of it in quite some time, no links, no nothin'. I was under the impression you had taken it down ages ago.
