Okay so I need a little bit of help. I couldn't really find anywhere on the wiki to put this, and even now I don't honestly know if this is the right place. Either way I need to have one of the Admins request a site dump on the PICO-8 wiki. It says here that you can basically download the entire wiki: https://community.fandom.com/wiki/Help:Database_download but I can't because there is no dump: https://pico-8.fandom.com/wiki/Special:Statistics I don't know if there is an Admin on the wiki but if they could request a database dump that would help tons. I do all my Pico-8 programming on a computer not connected to the internet and could really use constant access to the wiki instead of having to go to another computer. Thank you very much, and I look forward to you guy's help!
I'd be interested in this too, CS. Looks like they don't have any backups.
Database dumps Database dumps can be used as a personal backup (FANDOM produces separate backups of all wikis automatically) or for maintenance bots Current pages (This version is usually best for bot use) Unknown Current pages and history (Warning: this file may be very large) Unknown
That's not very fair ...
I'm one of the admins, and yes people do use the wiki. It was in disrepair for a while, but these days we keep it up to date. There's actually a lot of "tribal knowledge" about PICO-8 that isn't in zep's manual, and I'd say we have it documented pretty well on the wiki.
Anyway, yes, I'll take a look and see if I can figure out how to do what you want done.
Okay, they claim it's supposed to happen weekly, but I can't see any way to make that happen automatically.
What's actually the case is that I can manually request one no more than once a week. Which, uh, isn't quite the same thing, imho.
Anyway, I requested one. I don't know how long it takes, but check in on it and see if it's happened.
I'll try to remember to request new ones periodically. @ me on discord if it's gone a long time without, I guess. But remember I'm just a regular user like you, not part of lexaloffle (I TRIED, HE WON'T LET ME, OKAY?), so be nice. ;P
Looks like it's there, but I hope you understand this is a dump of the database, not the nicely-formatted html the wiki sends to your browser. There may be apps that can be used to browse the raw database in a more user-friendly or wiki-like manner, but that's outside of my sphere of knowledge at the moment.
Anyway, good luck, hope it helps in some way. :)
