Oh wait, you're an actual dude? Thought you were a bot ctrl-v'ing another wiki. GENOCIDE BY BOOMERANGS 18:54, 21 August 2011 (UTC)
I don't think anyone will mind. This wiki is no longer really active. FYI User:Halcy runs thing around here but is not very active unless you edit his user talk page. GENOCIDE BY BOOMERANGS 22:13, 21 August 2011 (UTC)
IIRC anonymous ids were halcy's own hack, but a mediawiki update broke it years ago, and nobody bothered to remove the "we use anonymous IDs" language. I don't expect him to care to reinstate this system, I'm gonna try to remove those misleading mentions right now.
I can delete and reinstate a page without its history if anyone had their IP accidentally exposed. GENOCIDE BY BOOMERANGS 22:50, 21 August 2011 (UTC)
You should ask Halcy directly, I'm just some guy he entrusted with adminship because I made a lot of edits back when the site was active. My educated guess is that he hosts it on the same hosting plan as his personal website and has no reason to stop hosting it despite the low activity. We run Mediawiki 1.15.3 - an old branch (current is 1.17.0) that seems mature and secure, so it's probably not costing him much time in maintenance. Also, maybe you should move this stuff to its own namespace, to make it clear you're hitching a ride and are not part of the main wiki? Otherwise you might get more silly edits like mine. Anyway, you should ask Hacly, use his talk page, he enabled mail notifications. GENOCIDE BY BOOMERANGS 04:20, 22 August 2011 (UTC)
Forgot to reply about the main page thing: It's not locked [1], feel free to add it, but don't expect people will care, because people is not something we have in large supply here. GENOCIDE BY BOOMERANGS 04:27, 22 August 2011 (UTC)


In reply to what you said on my talk page:
I'm pretty sure you actually meant to ask Halcy instead of me, but since you put that question on my page, let me just answer that I don't know or remember much about wikichan/etherchan, but I don't think there was any information of worth on it that was lost forever. I'm afraid I don't give much of a damn about this whole anonymous thing, haven't posted on 4chan in years either, but good luck in your project! If you want to contact Halcy you should probably e-mail him, he is no longer active on GENOCIDE BY BOOMERANGS 21:12, 26 December 2011 (UTC)

I worked on wikichan for ages and there was stuff that I miss (partly because most of the site was made by me ;_;) - 11:57, 6 January 2012 (UTC) (aka User:Jack Phoenix, too lazy to login)
