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?
Re this: Have French mastodon already built a wiki? Anything we could join in on with English?
@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
@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 email@example.com
@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.
. @shalf np, and I'm open to feedback if anyone prefers another platform. Have a good night!
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 !
@maloki Late on the game (I was on cooking duty, nay, pleasure this evening) but count me in for the "little hands that help where they can"
@citizenk people are working in a wiki ( you can find it in the replies somewhere )
@maloki there is a mstdn.wiki
@8zu that's the japanese one. :)
I mean if they want to go multi-language, we could work with them. :)
@8zu odd taht they didn't reach out to Gargron, or a toot in English ? that they were looking for other langauges. :)
@maloki Are you looking for a decentralized wiki, also?
@maloki I can offer the hosting space
@maloki if nothing else please let me know when you have it up , I would love to at least contribute to this wiki
@maloki why mediawiki all the time? why not dokuwiki?
@ginsterbusch Good question. It was just what came to mind, because I also know people who work at WikiMedia Foundation, so I simply didn't know about other types. I guess.
I wasn't deciding what/which. I just thought it was a good general term for it.
