Playlist.com - Gone Again (12/17/13)
Earlier in February, Playlist.com had re-opened their site, allowing playlists to be used outside of their site, meaning you could use their embed widgets again. Now they have turned into a digital radio service, currently in Beta. Your playlists can still be found if you login to your account, but you will not be able to use embedded playlists on your site. Playlist.com has once again bit the dust as a supported widget on the platform.

12/9/13 update:
Mass Messaging is now fixed, along with e-mail notifications for friend requests and new PMs, and access to the Friends tab has been restored. However, Mass Messaging will only send messages to 1,000 recently active users.

Also, an old issue since the early days of Wetpaint has been fixed. Now, the Site Updates only keeps information from the last 30 days instead of constantly saving it. This cleared up over 48 million old entries from the database, thus helping to speed up the platform.

12/3/13 update:
Premium ad-free subscriptions are now available! Just click on "Settings" and then "Upgrades" and "Click here to purchase the Premium Ad-Free Subscription". $7 / month or $47 / year.

    2014 Updates:


    2013 Updates:

    Good or All a Go 11.20.13 - Email Notifications now send out when a user receives a Private Message.

    Attention 11.06.13 - Even though Chrome was added as a supported browser, it does not render the EasyEdit tools correctly as the other browsers do. Look at the WikiFoundry Issues page for more information. This does not impact performance of EasyEdit in a dramatic way. At most, it's a visual issue.

    WikiFoundry News - WikiFoundry Central 11.06.13 - Travis announced Chrome was now a supported browser, as the Blink Engines were added as supported browsers, which also opened up support for other major browsers such as Opera and Maxthon. Safari is now the only major browser that is not supported. Support for Safari may be in the future.

    Good or All a Go 10.04.13 - Travis removed a piece of code, "Render IE8 like IE7". This code forced IE8-11 to render as the obsolete IE7. Now current versions of IE render EasyEdit mode properly.

    Good or All a Go 10.01.13 - GoDaddy'd DNS servers got screwy on the GoDaddy team, but they quickly rectified the issue and got it sent out to all sites registered with GoDaddy, but it did take some time to take effect on the sites.

    Good or All a Go 9.16.13 - The Site Creator was inaccessible for about 2 weeks, but on 10/3/13, Travis brought it back up.

    Good or All a Go 9.11.13 - Travis changed the server software from Apache to nginx. It increased the platform's speed, but it over-did it, which caused issues. He got some issues fixed, the nginx error to still appeared now and again. He eventually fixed everything.

    Good or All a Go 8.28.13 - Travis fixed most of the redirect issues on the platform, changing all links from Wetpaint to WikiFoundry. There are still a few that need to be changed, but they are very minor, and will eventually be fixed.

    Good or All a Go 8.17.13 - Travis restored the Site Creator that Wetpaint took down, and users were able to once again create wikis. Travis also mentioned if any users wanted to have their wikis unblocked, email him and let him know, and he'll look-over the wiki, and decide whether to unblock it or not.

    Good or All a Go 8.05.13 - The platform came out of Maintenance Mode and we had a few minor issues due to the transfer, but these were eventually addressed and fixed by Travis.

    WikiFoundry News - WikiFoundry Central 7.23.13 - Travis Derouin came to Wetpaint Central and announced he, as WikiFoundry, purchased the Wikis by Wetpaint platform a few weeks before, and that he was in the progress of transitioning the whole platform from Wetpaint's servers to his, and expected it to be done by July 31st. The platform would be in read-only mode (Maintenance Mode) for about a week. He stated he had a lot planned for the platform, and he would work on the platform to get it back to it's old self again, re-enable the Site Creator, and more.

    Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.
    This is the message I get when signed on to the site and try to switch between my wiki pages ? can anyone advise why.
    Also, I am using my wiki for an education site and whilst understand the issues of transferring to new servers and debugging, i now have a platform that is unstable - we can never get on! HELP please, I love to use the wiki but is causing me and the university no end of problems.

    Do you think/are you considering on making any new ones in the future since Wetpaint's transition? In my opinion, I think it'd be nice to add some new ones, but that's just me.
