The wiki was operated first on my own server where players connect to and games are run and saved. That isn't a good combination since my upload speed is limited (standard DSL broad band connection). Currently we have about 100 hits the day accessing 4 to 5 pages. Furthermore, the computing power and working memory of a plug device does not compare with real servers. Therefore I moved the wiki to Sourceforge.net. But now they will retire this service [1] and we are back at zero. There are a lot of wiki hosting service available for free [2,3], unfortunately the majority is ads funded (as an example [4], I didn't check others). So the question is what to do. Maybe someone has experience with wiki hosting.

http://scrabble3d.wikia.com/wiki/Scrabble3D_Wiki is horrible! I cannot accept so many advertising banners on Scrabble3D's wiki. Our beloved Scrabble3D is a high quality software that caters to a more serious and intellectuel clientele.

As long as someone has a hosting package, it's fairly easy to install MediaWiki (even I managed to do that!). I'm not sure though if it is possible to have two wikis on the same hosting packer, I will have to check. But if someone else has a hosting package, that would be an option too.

What does "hosting package" mean? Is it the computer hardware to be used as a server?

Ich versteh nicht ganz den Sinn von diesem Wiki. Es gibt doch schon ein ganz schönes "Scrabble3D-Wiki":

Die Befürchtungen von Scotty vom August vorigen Jahres scheinen ja nicht eingetroffen zu sein.

Zitat von SF.net
Note: The Hosted Apps Retirement is being delayed, we will update this page with a new retirement date when it's been decided on.

but

Zitat von SF.net
There is a work in progress to enable migration of MediaWiki content to the new wiki. Stay tuned.


Of course, we can put effort in SF's wiki. But I'm afraid we will not get bombarded with volunteers.
