Hello, fellow Apiary lovers!
Cindy has done a lot of work behind the scenes to get WikiApiary
upgraded to 1.39 and we've moved the worker bees back to Wikimedia Cloud
Services so that they don't compete for CPU and bandwidth with the
As a result, I've brought wikiapiary.com back online.
We'd like to ask for help from other people now.
Since a big part of the problem with WikiApiary is database timeouts,
Cindy and I are wondering if those of you with experience with SMW and
ElasticStore would help think changing the back end from SQLStore to
ElasticStore would help.
Of course, we would need some help with this. Ideally, some brave soul
would volunteer to do the conversion, but, if that isn't possible, a
step by step cookbook would be nice.
Finally, we think that the site's appearance could use some work.
Cindy suggested switching to Chameleon (and has it installed as an
option), but there is some general tidying that needs to be done.
Have a beautiful day!

As you may have noticed, this past week I put up the "We haven't
died..." message on the front page of the wiki.
Since Cindy Cicalese had some time to spend on a project, she decided to
use it on Wikiapiary. Currently, she's updating MediaWiki and the
extensions and running rebuildData.php.
Cindy will be joined this coming week by one or more of her WMF
coworkers to work on the site.
So, rest assured that while the site is down, there are some busy bees
behind the scene who are working on bringing the site back to health.
Thanks for your patience,
I cannot remember the books I've read any more than the meals I have eaten;
even so, they have made me.

First, let me appologize for the recent spam to the list.
It was in the queue and I accidently hit "accept".
Next, I'm planning on implementing ElasticStore for the backend instead
of SQL. The slowness on the site seems to be database contention and
I'm hoping that by switching to ElasticStore, we can eliminate that.
If you have experience with ElasticStore vs the "traditional" SQLStore,
I am interested hearing about your experience.
Hi all! When I created by account on Wikiapiary, I did not received any
email confirmation, and when I click 'Mail a confirmation code', it
throws me an error message:
WikiApiary could not send your confirmation mail. Please check your email
> address for invalid characters.
> Mailer returned: Unknown error in PHP's mail() function.
This may be an issue with the mail function. Please fix this.
Also, my email address is the same as the one I used to send this email.
In the coming weeks, Wikiapiary will be migrated and upgraded.
The objective is to have it work properly again.
Wikiapiary uses Semantic MediaWiki. We intend to use the Elasticstore to improve query performance and be prepared for future improvements.
The script that gathers information will be reviewed and modified to be more efficient with updates.
If you have questions or ideas for improvement, let us know. Now is the time!

Hi, I've noticed that there are two pairs of duplicate wikis: BlueSpice Helpdesk (de) & BlueSpice Wiki (de), and BlueSpice Helpdesk (en) & BlueSpice Wiki (en). I'm mainly sending this because I myself don't have the ability to move or delete pages, so I can't resolve these duplicates by myself.
I find it odd that these weren't listed in the "duplicate pages" concept, though.
