Exclamation The Fastmail wiki has been closed

I have just tried to check the Fastmail Wiki's "Recent Changes" page, only to get a "This wiki has been closed" page. This has happened at some time within the past 48 hours.

I think this must be an error, as the Fastmail Wiki was migrated to Wikia with the help of a then staff member (Angela), so Wikia were aware of the nature of the wiki at the time and did not (then) deem it to be in violation of the Terms Of Use.

Time for Rob Mueller to send Wikia an urgent message to get this decision reversed, I think...

Indeed. The wiki never reached its full potential, but there was still interesting information on there, I wonder if it became hijacked and illegal content put on there.

There has sometimes been illegal content put on the Fastmail wiki, as on all wkis, but it got removed pretty quickly and the perpetrators banned. Indeed, it was because of Wikia's supposedly superior spam protection that the wiki was moved there in the first instance. The move was actually done by a senior Wikia staff member (Angela), which makes the sudden shutdown with no warning all the more baffling.

Partially, yes, using the wayback machine. Try starting at https://web.archive.org/web/20131104...i/FastMailWiki
