lost RPi wiki?

Tue Jul 23, 2013 12:56 pm

I'm sure there used to be a useful wiki with lots of handy info and a link to it on the top of this site but after 20 mins poking around I can't find it. I tried searching for 'wiki' but there are over 9000 results and nothing helpful in the first couple of pages.

Am I missing something obvious? Has it been renamed (or excommunicated for promoting iPads) or what? I also thought there was a forum section here to discuss this site and forum glitches but can't see that either.

Help!

(PS - I've forgotten now what I wanted the wiki for but it'll come back)

The wiki is here: http://elinux.org/R-Pi_Hub

The reason for the link being removed is discussed here: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 25&t=45924

OK, thanks.

Maybe the wiki indirection page and link to it could be reinstated, with appropriate health warnings.
Or maybe the useful stuff from there could be given a home here and kept safe by our mods.

It is a sad commentary on the type of business that people think they have to run.
Hijacking a community support document just to promote your products. If it was my Foundation (And those people should be glad it is not mine) I would place any mention of their products or logo/s in the ban list. I would steer anyone who asked from their products. And remove any mention of their products from that Wiki.

Yes I know the wiki is not by the Foundation.
I would have also banned the members of the "council" along the way too. Oh and there would be no mention of their products in any Foundation generated post!

Yes I know I can be a very vindictive individual.

As it is, I would like to know exactly what idiots hijacked the wiki so I can make sure not to buy any of their products!

It does like some people are trying to clean it up.
