On Thu Nov 26, 2009 I made a post in the hidden moderator forum:

Since we will face a larger task of updating the Ogre Wiki for Ogre 1.7 - both the build instructions and most, if not all, of the tutorials needs to be updated - why not grab the opportunity and move to something better?
My suggestion is to abandon MediaWiki - it's stictly aimed at WikiPedia use.
It's a pain in the behind to configure, the templates are awfully difficult to customize, and the plugin/addon configure/install leaves much to be desired.
The editing is not flexible, and you have to learn obscure syntax - it's just clunky.
And it doesn't really make information easy to find and organise.
Many posts later - and a lot of rambling from my side - Sinbad agreed to give me a dump of the Ogre MediaWiki pages, and told me to prove myself:
If I could make a convincingly better wiki, he'd consider it.
