Hi all – Alex Weinstein here, Head of Technology at Wetpaint. - Over the past few weeks, we have received a number of complaints from the Wetpaint community about wikis created that contain a variety of offensive material, and therefore violate Wetpaint’s Terms of Service. To preserve the health of the community and provide better service to those that abide by our Terms of Service, we have made a decision to: -
Immediately terminate any wikis that violate our Terms of Service
Cease creation of new wikis until we are able to deploy tighter controls for this sort of Terms of Service violations.
Existing wikis will continue functioning without interruption, with improved performance due to freed up hardware capacity. In the coming 3 months, we are planning to upgrade the server hardware for the Wetpaint Wiki platform to further improve wiki page load performance. - Thank you.

Tip of the Month - Use Spellcheck!
Tip provided by: CaptainSpaz It is very difficult for the Wetpaint Central Staff to understand you if you do not use proper spelling, grammar, or punctuation. This is also true on other wikis as well. Wetpaint built in their own spell check system, so please remember to use it. Also, there are several add-ons for Firefox and Internet Explorer that can help you spellcheck your thread posts. (If you are posting with Google Chrome, it has a built-in spellchecker.) - While you may be able to understand what you are saying, if you spell things incorrectly, this is how we read it:
