Welcome back. Maybe you're sent by fate to restore the game in its time of
need? Or maybe you're attracted by the smell of death and decay?

The only problem with Mediawiki is that we already have code in Python
that runs on MoinMoin; all of it will need to be replaced. I can't do that
because I don't know much PHP.

Also, does MediaWiki support anything like the TwikiDrawPlugin for editing
image maps via an embedded java program? MoinMoin recently added support
for this plugin, which would be very useful for things like The House.

Yeah, activity has faded a lot lately, mostly because nobody seems to have
enough time to fully grok the rules. There are too many things to keep
track of, and not enough time to keep track of them all.
