So, we’re doing something that is a bit overdue, and that is technical upgrades to the Battlestar Wiki software.

Please be advised that editing to any Wiki in the Battlestar Wiki network will be disabled beginning Sunday, April 17 at 10 PM EDT, so that we can ensure that we have the most current version of the Wiki content available prior to the upgrade.

Basically, we are upgrading everything under the sun, that means the MediaWiki engine and all the extensions behind it. We will also be rolling out a stable WYSIWYG editor, and this is probably the most major change to the Wiki at this point.

This will be phase one of our upgrade, as phase two will be a total refit of the Battlestar Wiki interface, which will be more streamlined and interactive.

We do not anticipate any major downtime, and all content will be available for recall: it’s just editing that will be locked down.

We expect to have total functionality available after 10 AM EDT on Monday, April 18, 2011.

Good hunting!
