I guess he could just give editing power to the long time community members and if he ever retires from TIBD too he could hand mod powers to someone else that can add extra community members as editors later. Making an abandoned site wide-open to anyone for editing rights might pose problems with bots.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

FYI - TI-Story is now opened for editing again :)

Oh wow that is awesome, but for how long? D: (if the author discovers it's dead-ish again will he close it again?)

I would like to see it open even if not regularly maintained. If there is a moderator regularly active he can monitor vandalism attempts. Plus it's nice every once in a while to keep stuff up to date for programmers and websites that are still around. Omnimaga, for example, is very outdated, and my page misses many of my newer stuff.

I just edited the Omimaga page to include Sorunome as a Support Staff. That has literally been bugging me for months.

I think the staff list is not even up to date anymore anyway, since many staff that were inactive got demoted and stuff. Also, some GIF of projects are from dead projects so it might be better to include finished stuff.

I'm now a site admin over at TI-Story, so I'll be keeping an eye on it every couple of days to monitor vandalism, etc. :)

Ok that's good to hear that you took over :)

Burr is still the site owner/master admin (and rightly so, he's spent countless hours on the development and content), but yes he's not on there often anymore and was nice enough to allow me to keep an eye on things for him so that people could continue to add content :)

Whoo, glad to hear about the updates! TI-Story is a pretty valuable community resource and I'm glad it's still around :)

Are there many user edits?

I think TI-Story is important to have around yeah, plus it's just cool to have a reference point to view the history of the TI community. I've been spending a little time on there adding more content, which I'll continue to do as motivation permits. Otherwise I'll still be hovering around there anyway, in case anyone tries to mess anything up or whatever :)

It also help allowing each calc site getting documented because on Wikipedia, admins and regular users seems to think that anything with an Alexa rank of >1000, less than 10 million visitors a day and fewer than 1000 registered members connected simultaneously is irrelevant.

Yeah, I understand that Wikipedia needs quality control to set a limit on entities that are "notable" enough for conclusion, but sometimes those rules aren't terribly relevant. There are towns with their own Wikipedia articles (basically all stubs), many of which have smaller populations than Omnimsga has daily unique visitors.

then again, they might just be guarding against link rot. You can expect a town to still exist ten years down the road, but the same can't be said of an average small website.
