Can confirm that, works better now👍

Awesome, thanks! Instantly bookmarked! :star_struck:

Looks like I can’t receive the confirmation email.

ah, can you create an issue on the wiki-infra repo?

It’s very nice !! I hope we will have a BETTER documentation this has been discussed on reddit… Why is the Nix documentation so bad? - r/NixOS

Can you please link that?

As in the meantime, I can’t log in via GH either:

Just as a heads-up, the administrator of the now removed all former admins and an assigned a new account to “Wiki admin team”. User rights log - NixOS Wiki

timestamps say he did this after one of those admins deleted all their pages from User contributions for Samueldr - NixOS Wiki

i don’t understand the fork. it’s true most of the names here i get along with in the past are all on the same side of this fork, but it’s really not being communicated why. Cloudflare? bad UI? both those things matter, but seem a trivial thing (to me) to fork over.

i understand the desire to avoid rehashing every dispute in the public. but then the whole thing looks arbitrary and is easily misread as some weird sort of power grab. if anyone’s written an honest “why should i contribute/link to one wiki or the other” page, i’d appreciate the read.
