Default Is the Wiki dead?

Hello there!
I've been working on making a small database of NGS service providers and have found information on SEQanswers that was very helpful. I was even happier when I found that the thread was 'moved' to the Wiki, hoping that it would have more up-to-date information.
But there is a very severe, and weird, error when visiting the NGS service providers page. See for yourself: http://seqanswers.com/wiki/Next_Gen_...rvice_Provider

I was hoping that there some sort of trouble-shooting corner either here on the forums or on the wiki itself, but both show inactivity since late 2012... Is the SEQWiki still alive at all?

See Dan's response below...I'm currently in need of finding others with the MediaWiki/Semantic chops to help keep the wiki alive...as the current configuration is beyond my abilities...thanks for the update, stay tuned, it's not abandoned.

Lets say it's on life support... Basically, not enough people have the
technical skills (or the motivation to learn) to keep the wiki
infrastructure itself in good shape... contributors are contributing
wonderful data, but there is essentially only 1 technical
administrator...

I'll try to look at this issue as soon as I have some free time (this
isn't my day job, and I'm busier now than I used to be...). I have
plans to really improve the providers section of the wiki (after
resuscitating it), and would love to hear from people willing to help
with that work


Many thanks for the bug report (it's most welcome!),
Dan.

Thanks for the quick response!
Good to hear it is merely 'on hold' right now.

Well, what with just one tech admin to run the joint, I can imagine that the backlog becomes a bit too much to handle.
Sadly I have zero experience with MediaWiki/Semantics, so I can't help out there.

Perhaps a sticky with a: "Vacancy: SEQWiki help wanted!" could help fish out some tech support?

Nonetheless, thank you for the feedback and let's hope the Wiki can be resuscitated soon!

Fortunately, I was born with enough experience to do this work. For everyone else, there's Google.

Sorry for not replying sooner. I've fixed all the serious errors some months back. There's a lot more to do to make it nicer, but I shouldn't even be writing this now... (I'm busy ;-)


Cheers,

Thumbs up

Well it took me two months to see your reply, so I understand that feeling.. ;P

Just saw the updates, looks really good!

There's nothing quite like a good, comprehensive list of NGS service providers in this busy, busy industry.
