Thanks for bringing it to our attention.
Would the plug community be interested in setting up and managing this content?

I'm happy to continue to contribute and help update and maintain, but I unfortunately, I don't have time for overall responsibility.

Urban and Marios: We would be happy to set it up and add guys like you as admins to help out as needed.

the main problem we are having is keeping the spam bots away as well as allowing participation from community so it can be easily edited.

Better ideas out there than the doku wiki?

I have some spare time (but very limited knowledge of maintaining a DokuWiki).

I will be happy to help out as needed. :D

No better ideas (yet), just let's get the Wiki up again and maybe add e few new posts.

Restored, using a Google cached copy as a starting point. I was unable to revert - no older versions were listed.

But... the spam bot is back. Hit the torrent firefox plug in page.

Have you tried any of these?

ok urban has been made an admin.
Almost all existing user accounts have been wiped and registration of new accounts is now disabled. But it is still going to be a challenge to allow edits without spam?

We don't have a problem installing new software if that is better.

Thanks. Is there a CAPTCHA on new account registrations? You could also add one to site edits via plugin.
