Wow, I drifted away from B Nomic shortly after it had near-died, and
here I wander back shortly after it near-died again. Fate? :P

Anyway, I'm interested in playing, but don't know how much time I'll
be able to devote. Mediawiki (as others have suggested) does seem
ideal from my POV, but I don't know what the rules were like just
before the server died.

I do note that discussion in the archives is recently rather lighter
than I remembered - signs that the existing game had become stale?
