the new .wiki domain

after ED was lost due to 'data corruption', a different person has taken on the task of hosting ED. they experienced trouble nearly immediately and the wiki was hosted at .fyi for a short time, but Glorious Leader has now resolved whatever was going on. the way i recall it:

  • .rs died right around August 2019 when Zaiger had to suddenly leave, but someone else managed to get most of the pages with histories and images from the 2019 database and restarted ED in the autumn, but it closed within a few months.
  • in February, current Glorious Leader restarted ED .wiki from a July 2017 backup with histories and many images. due to some trouble, it was hosted briefly at .fyi as described above but is now at .wiki. some of the material after July 2017 has been recovered from Archive.org and various archive sites and personal backups.

your description is the most correct one on the internet. :^) Hipcrime (talk) 00:06, 30 August 2020 (UTC)
