The wiki looks like it’s down… when I go to it, it says:

Warning: dir(/home/.magnum/blognomic/www/wiki/skins) [function.dir]: failed to open dir: No such file or directory in /home/blognomic/www/wiki/includes/Skin.php on line 22

Fatal error: Call to a member function read() on a non-object in /home/blognomic/www/wiki/includes/Skin.php on line 27

Also, the post page has no formatting. This makes it hard to navigate.

Here too

Hmm, that’s a strange error; the usual useskin= and action=raw workarounds for broken skins don’t seem to work.

Hm, I want to do something this week… I assumed I could build a room and put a bed into that one and rest then there. Mabye I would do something after that…

But now I can‘t do anything, because there are no rules available which would me allow to do anything, right? Without Ruleset, there is no nomic game anymore.

Well, I could abuse this as a scam, because there is (for example) no restriction of editing the gndt, but this would be CfJ’ed I assume…

Hm, what do we do with the Colonists, who could perform actions this week? Mabye tomorrow should count as this week?

But at first we need someone who is able to fix that bug, that’s more important of course.

The way I see it, not being able to see the Ruleset doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist, so it’s still effective.

Also, IIRC, the Fair Play rule prevents you from using the blog/wiki tech to gain advantage in the Nomic. =P

It is going to be make it hard to do things without the map of the settlement, though…

I’m getting a warning that the host key has changed, when I try to SSH to the server. In case something dodgy is going on, I’ve stepped back from logging in with the server password, and have sent 75th Trombone an email about it.

You also can’t log in…

75th has confirmed that it’s just down to Dreamhost moving the site to a different physical server, which has broken a few directory references and changed the host key. I’ve fixed the wiki config, so the wiki’s back up - I’ll take a look at ExpressionEngine now.

And okay, ExpressionEngine should be fine now. (For future reference, I just dropped an obsolete “/.magnum/” from the “Theme Folder Path” setting.)

@Keba: the rules still exist even if the page hosting them goes down, just like the gamestate still exists regardless of what the GNDT claims.
