Great Library of Greyhawk (GLoG) now on Greyhawk Online

Post by Big Mac » Thu Dec 13, 2018 12:23 pm

The Greyhawk wiki (Great Library of Greyhawk) has been put back online.

It has moved (for the second time) and is now hosted on Greyhawk Online. Here is what Greyhawk Online say about GLoG on their homepage:
Greyhawk Online wrote:The Administrators and Contributors of GreyhawkOnline.com™ are proud to announce the opening of the Greyhawk Wiki!! The hard work of many contributors over the last decade have allowed the GH Wiki to persist, even after losing mirror sites and other setbacks!
If you already use GLoG, make sure you update your bookmarks.

If you have not used GLoG yet, check it out, as it has a ton of information.

(I'm not sure if all the accounts have been migrated over, but I'm guessing that - if they have - that some people might have their password saved in a cookie that only works with the old website. I'm guessing there is a way to get your password sent back out to you, but I've not tried to access my own account yet. If I find out, I'll edit this post. If anyone else finds out first, please post the details in the topic, and I'll get this OP updated.)

Hey there, BigMavc!
Thanks so much, for getting this out there!
We, the admins of Greyhawk Online, are pleased to be able to bring the Great Library back to everyone once again.
It made us sad that GH Wiki had been fraught with many problems that resulted in moving from mirror to mirror over the years and eventually being taken down. Previous editions have had problems including malware and prolific spam bots making new pages every few minutes for days. We were sad to see it go down from three different sites.

But, now, it's being hosted by Greyhawk Online which has been around for 15 years!
We plan on keeping the wiki as a part of our site for many years to come!
:D

Unfortunately, we didn't have access to the previous accounts database for accounts and passwords.
But, that's a good thing, really.
It means no spam from us, or the website!
Additionally, accounts aren't restricted like they used to be. They no longer require sending an email to an outside email. Registration is instantaneous, and only takes a few seconds. It's completely open registration, and editing is immediate and available to everyone. Registering is more for using Watch Pages, and so that you can get notifications and stuff when someone updates your favorite topics!
It's not strictly necessary, but, we highly encourage it, because we love to know who's in our community of friends!

So, I hope to see everyone come on out, and take a read, and add a sentence or two to your favorite topic!
:D

Just an update…
The art has been completed for the new logo… And there’s bright new shinies on the front page.

And the wiki is getting bigger and bigger!
We are adding often more than 20 pages per day!
And there is at least something new every single day!
There are contributors from other sites who are adding more and more pages, and we’re collaborating on things like templates and portals and categories!

We are very proud that the wiki is doing so well, and growing!
Come take a look, read, and I had something if you feel like it!
