Wiki Spam Frustration

wiki iconOur user wiki has been temporarily unlinked from our website due to an uncontrollable amount of spam. The wiki has been defaced so extensively that fixing it has become non trivial. I am currently working on an alternate wiki system that will require user accounts and will offer a bit more automated spam control.

The new wiki can be found at http://tricks.onigo.net/mwiki/ but so far has almost no content, and I’m still working on getting it to look and work the way I want it to. So consider this wiki in the very early stages of development. That being said, if you have experience with wikis, or would like to help migrate content from our previous wiki (still available in its hobbled format at http://tricks.onigo.net/wiki) I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks for your patience and help,
Kent Conklin

UPDATE: Most of the content from the old wiki has been moved to the new wiki. The old wiki has been locked, so you can no longer create or edit tricks, but you can still view the wiki. If you want to add a trick to our wiki feel free to add it to our new wiki which is available here.

Update: Aged Photos

I’m currently working a trick to make new images look old, but due to the depth of this trick it’s going to take a few extra days to put the trick together. Also, since it’s a rather long trick, it will be split up into 2 episodes but, each episode should be able to stand alone too.

So as a little teaser, here is a before and after picture for this trick.

New to old preview
