|Note from "Stooge"|
First, I'd like to personally thank Mephistophelea for her efforts to stem the tide of vandalism on the various wikis. Her efforts are very much appreciated.
Due to a recent incident I had to resort to locking all the wikis down until I am able to implement a long term solution to the situation. We had a person take it upon themselves to run around the wiki pages and delete the content of pages. I attempted to set it up where anonymous users could not edit, however the person in question just started making accounts with random names and deleting again.
I now have a method that will allow either myself, Berto, or my son (Who is going to take on a co-admin role for the wikis) to ban by either user name, IP, or both. Only admins have this ability which is why Mephistophelea was fighting a valiant fight, but ultimately could not stem the tide on her own as moderators are not granted the ability.
Once I get my son setup and show him what he needs to do, then I'll start unlocking the wikis. It will likely be only open to registered users at this point.
Please be patient, and I apologize that it took so long to post a notice about it. To be honest, with everything else going on around me, it slipped my mind.
