    HUGE update (17 march 2013) - most of the links removed (dead)

    G̶a̶r̶r̶y̶'̶s̶ ̶M̶o̶d̶ ̶C̶l̶a̶s̶s̶i̶c̶ ̶W̶i̶k̶i̶ ̶i̶s̶ ̶b̶a̶c̶k̶!̶
    GMod Wiki: The Story
    A many years ago, in a far, far internets...
    Garry's mod wiki suddenly disappeared from internet
    Before that happened, maurits150 made a mirror with HTTrack website copier, so, after an accident, this mirror became popular.

    GMod Wiki: Attack of the Clones
    Maurits150 also posted a 433,7 MB zip-file with mirror, commonly known as GMod_Wiki.zip, (links below) so, at this moment everyone can download and host gmod wiki mirror, for the great justice, for teh lulz or just for offline usage.
    Now, wiki.garrysmod.com is up, but content was lost, probably forever...
    Time passes, life goes on, but the old wiki still lives in our hearts...

    GMod Wiki: Episode Two
    Then, i found that maurits zip file also containg wiki source of the pages, so i tried to make wikimedia-based mirror, but that's tons of missing templates i have to rewrite. Then i started this thread...
    Now it became garry's mod overwiki.


    The links (Don't abuse them)

    Official wiki mirrors
    [maurits.tv] html mirror
    [gmodwiki.net]Sassharkey's mirror - looks like that's a wiki re-make, not a simple mirror (old domain: gmodwiki.com)

    dead links
    DEAD - [bananatree.im] html mirror
    DEAD - [evolution-gaming.net] html mirror
    DEAD - [slidefuse.net] html mirror
    DEAD - [̶s̶a̶n̶y̶a̶z̶o̶l̶.̶a̶a̶.̶a̶m̶]̶ ̶m̶e̶d̶i̶a̶w̶i̶k̶i̶-̶p̶o̶w̶e̶r̶e̶d̶ still sucks


    Wiki's for gmod-related projects
    DarkRP wiki
    Wremod wiki

    Googling mirrors tip!
    Just google that:
    site:maurits.tv keywords
    ̶i̶n̶u̶r̶l̶:̶b̶a̶n̶a̶n̶a̶t̶r̶e̶e̶.̶i̶m̶/̶w̶i̶k̶i̶/̶w̶i̶k̶i̶.̶g̶a̶r̶r̶y̶s̶m̶o̶d̶.̶c̶o̶m̶
    ̶i̶n̶u̶r̶l̶:̶s̶l̶i̶d̶e̶f̶u̶s̶e̶.̶n̶e̶t̶/̶g̶m̶o̶d̶w̶i̶k̶i̶/̶w̶i̶k̶i̶.̶g̶a̶r̶r̶y̶s̶m̶o̶d̶.̶c̶o̶m̶
    ...

    ̶A̶d̶d̶e̶d̶:̶ ̶dead - ̶G̶l̶o̶b̶a̶l̶ ̶G̶M̶O̶D̶ ̶W̶i̶k̶i̶ ̶S̶e̶a̶r̶c̶h̶̶ ̶(̶t̶h̶a̶n̶k̶s̶ ̶̶S̶a̶s̶s̶h̶a̶r̶k̶e̶y̶)

    Download GMod_Wiki.zip (winhttrack html mirror, ̶1̶3̶3̶7̶ 433,7 MB)
    [maurits.tv]
    ̶[̶B̶a̶n̶a̶n̶a̶ ̶L̶o̶r̶d̶.̶/̶f̶i̶l̶e̶b̶a̶n̶a̶n̶a̶.̶c̶o̶m̶]̶
    ̶[̶B̶a̶n̶a̶n̶a̶ ̶L̶o̶r̶d̶.̶/̶p̶g̶s̶e̶r̶v̶e̶r̶s̶.̶n̶e̶t̶]̶ (might get faster download to some people)

    Also thread Garry's Mod Backup Lua Wiki - When the official is slow/down

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Looks like that project is currently abandoned
    About wikimedia-powered mirror:

    Why it's better than html backup?
    Better search
    Simple links + better urls

    Why it's worse than html backup?
    Probably some pages lost - sadly, i didn't found any peoples who have a dump (if anyone find - let me know)
    Templates and categories broken (@TODO but going to be fixed)

    Why it's still sux?
    Everything that i have i got from maurits150's zip file - not from the wiki itself
    Templates and categories broken (@TODO but going to be fixed)

    What have been done:
    Parsed source pages for wiki source
    Images uploaded
    Missing images was replaced with thumbs
    Thanks:
    maurits150 - making HTTrack copy & hosting it
    Banana Lord. - hosting a mirror & zip
    other peoples hosting a mirrors

    Updated, at the moment i posted maurits.tv was down (or that's cloudflare caching issue?)

    First link doesn't work
    Fixed (wrong .htaccess, my bad)

    added

    p.s.
    I still don't understand how templates with {{:such:syntax}} should be configured. Yeah, wiki is not fully usable atm, but lua function templayes & examples works fine.

    I'm not going to lie, I think the new wiki will be complete shit. You're cutting out half of the content. I can understand getting rid of Wiremod shit, but not getting rid of addons and what they do in detail. I can't see what's so wrong with summarizing them.

    It's GMod wiki, not Wiremod wiki or DarkRP wiki. It's ok to have just single articles about popular mods, but covering them in depth would be stupid. For example, Combine OverWiki has article about They Hunger, but doesn't have articles about Dr. Franklin and Zorks; Call of Duty Wiki doesn't have articles about Galactic Warfare at all.

    It's obviously better to spread the information all over the internet in stead of keeping it together at a single place so people easily can find it.

    My personal guess is simply that Garry doesn't like it. There are no other (valid) explanations. It's text, links and pictures and if it helps making the game more popular, why remove it.

    Oh god you found my Slidefuse mirror...

    Edited:

    Why don't we host a Media Wiki and have a few contributors re-adding everything important rather than trying to convert everything.

    Edited:

    http://gmodwiki.com/

    Bought a domain for a legacy wiki... I'll open account creation to anyone who wants to edit it.
    You can still access the HTML wiki via:

    it's easier to use google search and direct links than rebuild the entire wiki...

    8,416 pages, 3,324 articles and 1,670 files in this Wiki, by 2,848 users and 3 admins.

    Let's invite few contributors re-adding 2117 pages that's ALREADY imported into other mediawiki...
    Awesome idea! You're genius. Let's make one more empty wiki, internet deserves such things.
    Seriously, you're kidding me?
    Doesn't we ('we' means 'I or someone else') should make wiki based on existing content?
    If you think we should start from scratch, there is a guy who made a wiki for that

    All i want is vanilla gmod wiki like official one was before wipe. With all darkrp/wiremod/addons shit (that wasn't shit, anyways).

    Is that an export of all the pages?
    No, it's WinHTTrack dump.

    Okay, you didn't get the point. If eventually someone -gets a dump- of the old wiki (or if someone wants to port pages over) It's a base that it could be readily integrated in.
    I wasn't saying people should type out functions/examples out again, in no means.
    Please, calm down...
