There is a redirect to site if you search with term wiki:something! Why? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:25, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

That's an interwiki link. — Scott talk 17:46, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
As of now, that no longer happens. — Scott talk 14:56, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

WikiWikiWeb offline and not in general[edit]

I've just been browsing around, and thought to check out the Portland Pattern Repository. Well, the root index page and pages in the (non-wiki) ppr directory itself are fine, but and (which is what's linked from the PPR index) both return 404s. "Not Found" instead of "Forbidden", so there's definitely something other than overzealous anti-vandalism measures going on. --Proginoskes (talk) 16:46, 31 October 2012 (UTC)

Must have been a transient issue, it's back now. — Scott talk 09:59, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, I just noticed that myself. Hope it stays up instead of going into yo-yo mode... --Proginoskes (talk) 16:44, 1 November 2012 (UTC)


WikiBase redirect should be deleted or modified, or a disambiguation page created, so that Wikibase, the software that runs Wikidata, can have its own page — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chjohnson39 (talkcontribs) 09:00, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

mw:Wikibase isn't notable enough to have a Wikipedia article, but I agree that a disambiguation page would be better than the current redirect at WikiBase, so I've set that up. — Scott talk 15:03, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

No updates since December 26?[edit]

Not even the Random Articles page - which I believe is updated by a script - has been updated since December 26, 2014. I tried editing the sandbox just now and was told "The WikiWiki Server Can not Process Your Request - Suspicious source ( This information has been logged. We are sorry for any inconvenience." Does anyone have any sources as to what's going on here? Fench (talk) 18:49, 13 January 2015 (UTC)

Visit and find that the DNS-based blacklists on which the server had relied has since shut down: "Last Notice: Wildcarding of Services Jan 1st". Try e-mailing Ward about it. --Damian Yerrick (talk) 18:26, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

That wiki has since been "federated", whatever that means. See the topic "System Notice" on that wiki for a link. I tried reading it to figure out how it works for authors, and frankly, am confused up the wazoo so far. It uses invented terms to describe other invented terms. It seems participants have to rent servers or become buddies with somebody else who has rented a server. Very odd. I agree that one should be able to own a copy of their content, but renting one's own server to do it strikes me as strange. Maybe that hurdle is a way to filter out riff-raff, but the alleged vandal was not a technical newbie I don't believe. I don't get it.

Semi-protected edit request on 16 March 2016[edit]

Can someone add the Start date and age template to the current "25 March 1995" to {start date and age|1995|03|25} to correspond to WikiWikiWeb's official release date? (talk) 22:06, 16 March 2016 (UTC)
