Its all blanked out for me too, interestingly if I hit the Edit button it all comes through, so it looks as though the database is fine, the front end is having issues.

And I hate to say it, but that is the exact same symptoms as when Crystal Hall forums got hacked, and I was not able to create a login before because of database errors.

If anyone has the time, we might want to start a project to copy the Wiki /sigh

Did a quick idea. Used Wayback machine and chose a date. Its not perfect but is able to pull up date about Skybolt. Not sure how much can be retrieved. Just a thought.

I was also able to pull up the Whateley forum but haven't tried drilling down to see if actual messages appear. I went to a time before the actual forums became inaccessible.

*edit* Never mind its not archived.

The only info I could retrieve is this:

With her boyfriend Cavalier, she used to be in the Beret Mafia and maybe the Cape Squad. Over Christmas 2005, they were enslaved by Hekate with a mind-slave spell. For a year they were used and abused by the Alphas, until during winter break 2006, Hekate tried to both renew the spell on them and put it on Fey. This resulted in all three of them going free, as Jade destroyed the circle holding them, and Fey cursed Hekate. When Skybolt and Cavalier were freed, they first attacked Hekate until she escaped, then when they returned to Whateley they attacked the Don, putting him in the hospital. They are currently in ARC for treatment.

Elaine Schroepfer[1], codename Skybolt, is (or perhaps was) a Whateley student with powers ratings of EX-4/EN-3(lightning, flight).
[edit] Description

With her boyfriend Cavalier, she used to be in the Beret Mafia and was checking out the Cape Squad.[2]

Over Christmas 2005, they were enslaved by Hekate with a mind-slave spell.[3] For a year they were used and abused by the Alphas, until during winter break 2006, Hekate tried to both renew the spell on them and put it on Fey. This resulted in all three of them going free, as Jade destroyed the circle holding them, and Fey cursed Hekate.[3]

When Skybolt and Cavalier were freed, they first attacked Hekate until she escaped, then when they returned to Whateley they attacked the Don,[4] putting him in the hospital.[5] They were subsequently sent to ARC for treatment.[5]

After some special therapy[6], she was deemed well enough to return to Whateley. As of April 29, 2007 she's again residing at Melville Cottage.[7]

OK, this is REALLY odd.

The page loads fine in my main browser (Seamonkey), but loads blank on any other browser I tried on my PC.
It did load fine on both Chrome and Firefox in my Android phone, though.
I suspect that it might have something to do with scripts -- I have NoScript in Seamonkey, but not in the other browsers. And mobile browsers are served a different page, with different scripts.

Anyway, I will look into the Wikia backup option... it seems wise to do it, after all the trouble we had.

EDIT: I did some minor editing on the page and it seems to have fixed the issue. Now it loads in all my browsers. Maybe it just needed a nudge... large sites like Wikia use several redundant servers, they may have got out of sync.

Don't call me "Shirley." You will surely make me surly.

when Sir Lee edited it it fixed it.

I couldn't get it to load in Seamonkey last night, after his edit it loaded just fine.

As with any decent Wiki software, Wikia maintains an archive of edits (useful for reverting vandalism / accidental wipes etc.).

There are two ways of viewing the history:

1) Click the little arrow on the right side of the green Edit button, and choose History from the menu,
2) Add ?action=history to the end of the page URL.

The last two revisions to Skybolt's page were today (Sir Lee adding a couple of line breaks to fix a viewing issue) and back in April.

As the right side of the brain controls the left side of the body, then only left-handers are in their right mind!

Anyway... I looked into the option of backing up the wiki. It's not that hard -- there's a feature in this page:
crystalhall.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Statistics
that generates a dump of the entire wiki as a XML file and compresses it in .7z format. I just downloaded it -- the backup with full revision history is just 3.5 Mb. Yeah, pretty small, but then, it's not that big a wiki. (But the XML is about 220 Mb -- it just compresses really well). Anybody who wants a copy can just download it.
It obviously does not include the images, though.

7zip is a pretty good compression ratio and xml is nothing but plain text so it compresses very well. I wonder if the dump has urls for the images, they would be fairly simple to strip out of the wiki with a wget script if so.
