I can't get in either. Maybe Gordon is working on it? (I don't know)

I can't access the wiki either. Just a blank white page in Chrome. Internet Explorer gets a HTTP 500 Internal Server Error.
Thanks,

Make sure it's going to the new wiki at brwiki2:

http://www.brwiki.com will automatically forward to the correct url for the wiki, which is brwiki2.brulescorp.com.

However, some people might have bookmarked the old wiki at brwiki.brulescorp.com which is no longer valid. That wiki has been out of date for a couple years now as all new changes have been made to brwiki2, and it looks like it was recently taken down.

If you have any bookmarks to the BR wiki, update them to point to brwiki2.brulescorp.com, or better yet, update them to point to www.brwiki.com which should always forward to the right place.

At Gabriel's request, the old address of brwiki.brulescorp.com now points to the new wiki.

However the preferred address is brwiki.com.

The wiki is back up.

The main page is slightly restructured in the new edition.

The look of it is also different. Mikhail and I played around with some of the skins which show up under under preferences after you log in. There is a bit more that can be done to tweak some of th skins.

We also had an extension in the old wiki called category tree that may need updating.

One more thing. We have to click an extra time to bring up error code pages.

So there is more work to be done, but THE WIKI IS UP.

excellent!
I'm using the monobook skin and it still allows for the same ease of getting to error codes. i think its only the default vector skin only shows search option and not the go option

i didnt know we ever got the category tree working. i dont think were using it anywhere anyway.

The default skin now has a GO button. You can resume putting in an error code and hitting Enter to get the error details.

I am pleased to report tat the brwiki is fully functional in all respects, including:

    Category Tree extension
    The Sandbox
    3 new skins
    New user registration with bot prevention
    Removal of 60,000 bot registrations
The new skins:

* Daddio - a variation of Modern.
* Foreground and Refreshed - 2 skins that work well on phones and tablets.

very cool. I updated the common categories page with category trees and included it at the bottom of the main page. it makes a nice collapasable table of contents for the entire wiki.
