Is the wiki still there? I clicked the link on page 1, but I got this error message :(

Oh, found it when I searched. I would suggest updating the link on page 1 ;)

I know it's a lot of work, but is someone in charge of keeping the wiki up to date? I'm only seeing August as the newest...

The person that used to do it doesn't come around here anymore. We did have a volunteer for a while but she's been unable to do it recently.

I would greatly appreciate some volunteers to get the wiki up to date and then manage it regularly. Anyone able to spare some time to help out?

What we need is some kind of scraper program that would auto download all the files (or just all the pdf files) and then sorts them into a database. I assume something like that exists but I have no idea how to implement it.

Could there be a link to the patterns wiki from within the forums? Like, to add Patterns to the " Blog - Forums - Contact - About Us - Advertise - Support " menu?

Also, I could volunteer to help keep things updated until we can get a bot.

I would be happy to coordinate/head the wiki project. I helped develop the new organization scheme (which I think people like? Even though it's incomplete) so I know how to use our wiki platform, how to organize things and how to make them show up in searches.

I sent a note to LL a while back asking about what else I could/should do to help but never heard back. I'm going to be busy soon (graduation/moving/new job) but I think I'll still have time to coordinate with "volunteers" and do some work myself. Things will settle down for me in the summer.

This would have to be hand coded and would require a database :D which is why we are currently just linking from the wiki to the forum post with the PDFs/program files - which works pretty well and allows users to see updates/changes to the patterns if any were made.
