Guys, a small update - I have sent the XML file to the wiki admins and they will try to import server-side (we shall see if it works). It would help if at least the images could be imported, but even if this does not work, I will slowly rebuild the Wiki.
Meanwhile I am going through the pages and converting the different syntax (the previous Wiki did not use a 100% MediaWiki syntax, but rather their own tweaked engine). Tables are the worst, but I found out I can use the visual editor on MediaWiki itself to paste the text with tables from Word/HTML, then view the source of that and copy it to the DW Wiki page editor.
One important question - the previous Wiki contained a (yet incomplete) portion of the Galactopedia as a direct facsimile from the game, apart from the regular pages - in effect the "regular" pages were often copies of the Galactopedia entries, which were then enhanced, rewritten or updated further. Do we want to replicate Galactopedia here as well, or would it basically be double work? Should I rather import the Galactopedia pages as "regular" pages, so that they can be enhanced and updated further?
