Call of... Help?
Looking for a few people, who'd be willing to work together to host, manage, and contribute to a Mastodon Wiki.
We want to decentralize stuff like this, and not everything has to be under Gargron.
It will be a great place to collect things like how to help out (with other stuff than code), who to contact.
Contact info for server admins.
I know there are a few WikiMedia people around, who's up for it?
Hey guys, I'll be boosting you who reply to me on this. Find each other, let's get working! <3
@maloki Let me know how I can help 👍
@jd Find eachother in the replies.
@maloki We could do that in markdown on GitHub ;) Unfortunately the Mediawiki syntax is harder to learn / less usable outside wikis
@shalf wiki on github causes other issues, which is why it's been removed in the past.
@maloki Then mediawiki indeed, but multi-editing and locked pages are a bummer I wasn't missing 😬 Count me in. Let's find a cool sysadmin!
@maloki I'm not used to wiki's but I learn quick so if you want some translations in Dutch ...
Il y a déjà des pages wiki concernant Mastodon? (Pour joindre les pages à créer en anglais.) cc @maloki
@tcit I think multi-lingual wiki would be preferred! :D
@maloki Actually docs.framasoft.org is multilingual but focused on all Framasoft services, not only Mastodon.
@tcit tell everyone else!
I've delegated this to yall now! You can do this without me :)
@maloki I might be able to host?
@maloki great idea.
@maloki Ive never worked with anything wiki related. I would love to help though. you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
@maloki Dreamhost does some automated MediaWiki deployment and management that you might find really useful- definitely recommend looking into them.
If you need an invite I might have something that will make it cheaper- lemme know if you want to look!
@vahnj I will not be in charge of this project.
@maloki ahh okay! if you get in contact with whoever will be feel free to pass to them that I'm open to giving a referral to dreamhost, it's been great for my experience with MediaWiki deployment
@vahnj I boosted your toot, not sure if people will be able to talk to you though because whitelisting.
@vahnj @maloki DigitalOcean also has a one-click installer for MediaWiki: https://www.digitalocean.com/products/one-click-apps/mediawiki/
@maloki I don't think I have the skills or knowledge to help out, but I'm super jazzed about a Mastowiki
@maloki I LOVE WIKIS. I can't take on the task of admin or anything like that, but I would definitely contribute.
I can certainly donate the web hosting space necessary, assuming that hasn't been handled already.
. @shalf np, and I'm open to feedback if anyone prefers another platform. Have a good night!
@shalf le lien ne fonctionne pas apparemment, c'est une page sans contenu qui s'affiche (une surcharge ?)
@shalf Mais du coup celui-ci c'est quoi ?
@kozlika Sais pas, mais j'ai ajouté le lien dans le DokuWiki. Merci !
Well, @Admin was fast. A first prototype/iteration is already available online here as a DokuWiki (the first framapad link seems to be broken, maybe this community is a bit too eager to contribute 🤣): https://wiki.nofftopia.com/doku.php?id=start
I quickly copy/pasted there the .txt I could get from the framapad.
Merci à @Admin pour sa rapidité. Le premier prototype est un DokuWiki, disponible sur https://wiki.nofftopia.com/doku.php?id=start
On a été rapides à cramer le framapad, du coup j'ai rapidement extrait les premières données que vous y avez contribué, et les ai déjà posées sur le dit wiki.
Joyeuses contribution, perso je vais au lit !
@shalf Bonne nuit !
