    Who is the WIki editor?

    A simple question: Who is the present editor of the ZC Wiki, if anyone?

    If nobody can edit a wiki then it's not a wiki. It's just a website.

    All (well, all proper; or most) Wikis have at least one staff editor, to determine if a modification should be permitted. If so, they apply a commit action. Without this kind of protection, anyone could just go in, make whatever changes they wish, remove information, corrupt information, and so forth, with no method of preventing that kind of abuse.

    A Wiki can be set to be private, only to allow authorised users to make contributions, too; and user permissions on private Wikis may require a specific level to make changes, or submit contributions.

    The problem with the ZC WIki, is that it seems that no-one is out there, to either elevate user permissions, or to commit changes. I do believe that user permissions are broken though.

    Here lately, I've been the only person who still evens edits the ZC Wiki, not to mention, I am an administrator of the Wiki. But I don't know how to give other users the privilege to edit the Wiki.

    Gleeok: Yes, in fact, I would. I'd like to bring it up to date, and fill in the missing datum/entries.

    XMuppetSB: If I had the correct level of access, I could fix that.
    If you tell me exactly what Wiki SW you run, and what version, I'll pull some docs on setting up access privileges and document it for you.

    Oh wait. Now I remember that only Bureaucrats may edit user rights, and I'm not even on that level. And besides that, I don't even know what a Wiki SW is. Either way, if you want privileges to edit the Wiki, you may want to contact DarkDragon, even though he's not as active these days as he used to be.

    @ZoriaRPG : Sure that would be great.

    It's hard to contact DD on the forums alone these days. I'll see if I can get someone to leave a message on his MyFace page.

    If the wiki is really like locked out then we can always make a new one, but then we will have to do all the data/entries from scratch

    Please do, if possible. I'd be happy to work as the editor for this, and to fix it so that users may actually utilise it as a proper Wiki, given the ability to do either (or both)
    @anikom : I had thought of making a new Wiki, but there are pointers to the existing Wiki everywhere, and thus, a separate Wiki would just be confusing. It;s nearly impossible to track down all the links, and point them to a new place. That, and google results for Zelda Classic Wiki will always return the original version with a higher priority. It's best to fix what exists.
    @XMuppetSB Dear me, you were given the only write access, without any SU rights? No wonder we're so far out of sync...
