(New News)

  • January 31, 2009 - (Brandon Wilson): I have moved WikiTI to my own host so that it could be upgraded with the latest version of MediaWiki, which should hopefully stop all the spam. Editing for registered users has finally been re-enabled, so get to it!
  • October 29, 2008 - (Andy Janata): In a further attempt to curb spam, I changed some more settings and now only admins can create pages (at least, I think that's what I did. Pretty sure it worked, but not 100%). Yes, it is rather extreme, but it's the only surefire way to stop all the new spam pages. A new host (with PHP5) would be prefered. I may go ahead and host it on my own site if no other solution can be found soon. In the mean time, if you would like to request a page be made, please drop a line on the home page's talk page.
  • September 23, 2008 - (Andy Janata): Sorry for the long delay in updates. I have upgraded MediaWiki to the latest version that runs on PHP4. This, unfortunately, is already over a year old. Hopefully this will cut down on the spam a bit. If you find anything broken because up this update, please contact me at (ajanata) [AT] 'gmail' {FULLSTOP} <com>.
  • I have promoted Brandon and FloppusMaximus to sysops.
  • Everybody must confirm their email address (if they haven't done so already) to edit pages, for real this time. This may have worked in the past, but it was quite clearly not workign when I was testing.
  • New users may not create new pages, even after verifying their email address, for 4 days. If this is too much a nuisance, I can reduce the time, but I do not wish to eliminate it at this time.
  • March 13, 2006 - (Dan Englender): To help reduce spam, you must now confirm your email address once before editing any pages. You should only have to do this once. If you have any problems with this feature please email wikiti AT mail DOT denglend DOT net. Sorry for any inconvenience.
  • March 13, 2006 - (Dan Englender): WikiTI has been upgraded from MediaWiki 1.4.0 to 1.5.7 for security concerns and new features. If you find anything that doesn't work like it used to, please make a note on the discussion page and bear with us as we try to fix everything.
  • February 23, 2006 - (Andy Janata): You are now required to log in to edit any pages. Hopefully this will put an end to the spam.
  • April 12, 2005 - (Dan Englender): There are now more than 100 TI-83 Plus BCALLs in the database! Help this impressive number grow by adding some more!
  • April 4, 2005 - 22:02 GMT (JasonM): Caching disabled.
  • April 4, 2005 - 21:45 GMT (JasonM): Category listings are now case-insensitive.
