Question: Why did you change the website? I loved the old one!

Answer: We loved it too, but frankly it was beginning to stagnate. A big change was needed anyway. Then it was cracked... twice... so we had no choice anymore.

Question: So what is this site running now?

Answer: It's called OddMuse, a wiki engine.

Question: Wait, why a wiki? And why OddMuse?

Answer: Because OddMuse has minimal system requirements (just Perl and CGI), which was important, and has features like a proper comment system that make for an easy transition. It just happens to be a wiki engine.

Question: Then why not go all the way and make it open?

Answer: Do you volunteer to spend hours every day fighting spam? An open wiki in 2017 needs watched 24x7. Even Wikipedia is a lot less open than it used to be, and they certainly don't lack for editors!

Question: But can I have the editor password?

Answer: If we know you, yes, probably. Contact Felix for a speedy answer.
