Save our T61 Wiki

2014-09-23, 3:40 AM

 

Years ago while on a quest for info on T61 models I found the thinkwiki pages (english and german) were lacking in many areas and since I had no way to contacting the admins I came across someone who had created on on wikispaces website and helped him to improve it (although I provided a lot of the technical details I want to be clear that he did the lionshare of the work).

 

http://t61.wikispaces.com/

 

This soon became the "goto" source for T61 info and I've gotten more messages than I can count complementing the motherboard table alone so I think it would be a real lose to the community if this site is lost.

 

Wikispaces is making an exception for "educational" pages and it seems obvious this is 100% educational, but it seems they have a twisted definition of what education means and they only accept this definition if it fits into a classroom setting where the students pay (directly or indirectly) and when a site is purely educational and FREE, that doesn't qualify...   Wow...

 

Sometimes I think insanity is overtaking the world but I'm hoping there is a way to get them to reconsider. I'm also considering starting a petition to get them to reconsider.

 

If anyone has any suggestions to offer please do so because it would be very sad to see this work lost because of their twisted definition of what is or isn't educational.

I've got a proposal which I've sent you as a PM. Check it.

Thanks Metalik, your offer to host it was very generous, but I was just informed that wikispaces is going to grant us a free upgrade to their "plus" serivce indefinitely. Although rehosting it would save the site, it would lose (at least temp) all the traqffic it gets worldwide, close to 100 unique hits daily unless we were able to get a redirect from wikispaces, but thankfully that is not necessary now.
