    Let me throw some positivity in here. I'm really excited to hear that they're still continuing to talk about this.

    Off.

    Does anyone know who has had this website or if you could let them know? I really liked it for finding informations for my quiz questions in transcripts.

    Ooohhhh. That's a hit to the heart.

    They have a Twitter but looks like it's not been updated for a couple of years.

    Oh no! That wiki has been invaluable as a reference for me, more so than the Stargate Wiki. If only we can get our hands on the wiki database, then I can restore it.

    I tweeted them to see if they would respond... This certainly gives me a new incentive to restore my own wiki. If I can't get my hands on the wiki database, and if people are still interested, I wouldn't mind pooling together suggestions on how to restore something similar.

    Here's my tweet if anyone wants to retweet it to get more awareness: https://twitter.com/NickEastNL/statu...585480194?s=20

    Yeah, but that's just an archive and not a live website. It cannot be edited or updated. It could be "mined" manually, copying and pasting, but doing it one-by-one is not feasible. And I'd rather have a live wiki that can still be updated periodically.

    You can easily download the source files to the most recent versions of their pages and host them elsewhere using third party software. I know someone who did that for a website I used to work on, and I believe this is what he used: https://github.com/hartator/wayback-machine-downloader

    This way, at least, all of its information would be Googlable again. Copying everything into a new wiki so people can edit it would be a more involved process, but once you have it hosted somewhere, you could enlist your wiki's users to help.

    Problem solved. It was an oversight by the person handling the domain registration. They replied to my tweet saying that they put in the renewal so it should be back up in a couple of days.

    The problem with that is that MediaWiki pages are generated, so downloading them would still keep them static making them as useful as the archive on Wayback. I'm only really interested in the wiki. It's also no possible from a static archived page to get the source text, which means formatting is lost. Getting the database backup means it can be restored 1:1 with everything intact. But that's not necessary anymore, thankfully.

    It is working now. Thanks everybody for sorting it out so quickly. You are all amazing.

    In other news: https://wegotthiscovered.com/movies/...y-development/

    (Read the article and the comments, the title is a bit click-baity)

    A supposed "insider" apparently hinted at MGM (still) working on a reboot film (trilogy) based on the original 1994 film, but separate from the TV continuation reportedly being worked on by Brad Wright. It also implied that while this might be derived from the original reboot trilogy plans from Emmerich/Devlin, they would not be involved as Devlin previously stated they dropped out (mainly due to the failure of Independence Day Resurgence).

    I for one do not believe this for a second. While I can believe Brad is working on a continuation of the TV franchise, I certainly do not believe MGM would spend even more money on doing a completely separate and unconnected project (a theatrical film no less). Especially in today's climate and MGM's status. This would be like Disney running Star Wars as both the old EU and the new Canon franchise concurrently, relatively speaking. I just don't see it happening (or that it would happen but fail miserably, the film either getting released and failing, or ending up in development hell (again), also affecting Brad's project).

    WeGotThisCovered (and GiantFreakingRobot) are notorious bull$**** websites that have been the plague of geek fandoms for a while, but a lot of people still don't realise post made-up crap. If you see anything to do with them, don't even click the link. Don't give them the ad revenue, or the follow-through click stat, and don't share them. Just ignore them. Absolute disgrace of a website.

    Plus Brad Wright certanly wouldn't just forget about what went on in the three spin-offs he's worked on. Double-plus: he already stated that "it is a CONTINUATION and NOT A REBOOT". Unless he's agreed to finish up what came before and then porceed to do something entirely new. Now THAT I could understand and accept.

    As stated, it would be a separate project not connected to whatever Brad is doing, which is why it's such a stupid and inconceivable notion. It would be comparable to the reboot trilogy originally planned by Emmerich/Devlin, but without either of them or Brad.

    But the point is moot as it's just totally inconceivable for MGM to do.

    The point is moot because it came from WeGotThisCovered. Seriously, don't even click their links. Don't give their content any actual room in your memory.

    To be fair, someone telling me not to read or do something is just as bad. It may very well be a terrible site, but that's on me to decide. I don't trust the report, but I have too little experience with the entire site to make a fair judgment about the whole site, and I don't care enough to look around for other people's opinions to make a fair judgment as I only cared about that one topic. I just found that piece, I shared it to inform others because I think that's fair, explained my opinion and judgment, and that's it.

    There's a lot of stuff in my memory that I'd rather not have known, but it's a necessary evil to make sure I can make judgments as fair as possible, and opinions as informed as possible. That for one is the only reason I watched through the whole of SGU S1 and as many episodes of Star Trek Discovery and Battlestar Galactica as I could handle.
