Note that deleting a page is not a dangerous thing. It can be reverted quickly. However, ''renaming'' a page can destroy a transcluded [[WikiDocs]] page ([[Dont Rename Wiki Docs Pages|DontRenameWikiDocsPages]]!). Since [[Moin Moin|MoinMoin]] has no special "rename" right (renaming requires read, write, and delete), we are ''very'' reluctant to give out delete rights.

In order to edit a page on the wiki, you will need to pass an [[Wiki Spam Protection|anti-spam]] check.
  
We ported the wiki to a [[Moin Moin|MoinMoin]] wiki-engine. See [[Moin Moin Wiki Syntax|MoinMoinWikiSyntax]] for changes to the old [[Use Mod|UseMod]] syntax. Also you will have to register again with your old [[Wiki Name|WikiName]].

Things will probaly get worse during the time we implement [[WikiDocs]].
