In addition, here's some more information specific to our Wiki.

User Accounts

User accounts on this Wiki are entirely separated to the main website.

For GDPR/Privacy, we do a few special things:

  • User accounts have to be specifically requested to be made. Not only does this prevent spam, but it means we get direct consent from users since they will not have an account on this wiki unless they specifically ask for it.
  • When a page is deleted, content is stored for one month before the MediaWiki archive is wiped for it. In case of accidental deletions.
  • An email address is not required once your account is set up, you can remove it by going here and leaving it blank when updating.
  • Accounts are auto-removed if you haven't logged in for 30 days + you have submitted no content.
  • Revisions which refer to a non-existing page (a removed page) are deleted from the database once a week.
