1  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Technical Issues / Re: urquan wiki - SQL dump? on: July 03, 2005, 05:03:19 pm
First of all, sorry for the late response, I have been busy lately.
Second of all, thanks for the dump.
And here are answers to your questions -

1) Wikipedia DOES provide SQL dumps, and yes- although it's more than 20 GB - look in http://download.wikimedia.org/

2) Never said it's illegal to not provide the SQL dumps. I already mentioned that I was confused, and I know that Ur-Quan wiki is CC-Licensced. I did say that there's nothing illegal in providing the SQL dumps, though. Still, It's a choice of the admin, not obligation.

3) I mentioned other wiki project as an example only. Never said you must do anything because others do it. Don't turn my words into something they're not.

4) In fact, I'm representing only myself. Richard Stallman (The co-founder of GNU) has no connection to me or to what I do. GNU is only my nickname.

5) I wanted the SQL for me only, for curiosity and fun (I want to run my own private wiki server. don't worry - it'll be offline). Since Ur-Quan is a mid-size wiki project, and since I'm a big fan of this game, I thought it is a good option for first try (and I could use the wiki whenever I play, and don't have live internet connection).

Finally , I didn't came to argue, so I really don't understand your negative reaction to me. BTW, if anything I did violeted your robots.txt rules, let me know.

remember that it will be VERY hard to run it on modern computers without some strange side-effects, without a proper emulator for DOS (DosBox is the best I know)..

I don't see the point of arguing...I'll just wait for Meep-eep to do what he said he can, and probably leave the way I came after that.

Look pal,
I didn't come to fight anyone (particularly not the admin), so I'll just ignore your irritating (and 100% false) remarks about my honesty, my knowledge , etc.
I'll ask again, where can I download a SQL dump of the database, which is perfectly legal as part of the Creative Commons License (BTW - about the GPL remark - since I participate in Wikipedia for a considerable time, I just got used to the GPL, and since the Ur-Quan Wiki looks almost the same as wikipedia, I just hadn't notice it's CC and not GPL).

Have a nice day,
GNU

I would like to get ANY comments....
At least , the E-mail of the Wiki administrator..

I really don't want to download the site with crawling software such as HTTrack, since they put heavy load on the servers..

Hey guys,
Many wikimedia projects including wikipedia provide SQL dumps of their SQL databases, for offline browsing, as part of the GPL licence.. I couldn't find such dump for the ur-quan wiki, so I assume there isn't any.... I would REALLY like if you could do that - it's not that hard , and instructions are provided in the wikipedia site..

Hope to hear positive answers Smiley
