There has been a request to move all links to nethack.wikia.com to nethackwiki.com, which I confirmed is hosted on the same server as the popular gameplay server nethack.alt.org:

badp@delta:~$ dig nethack.alt.org | grep ANSWER --context 2 | tail -n 3
nethack.alt.org.    3407    IN      CNAME   alt.org.
alt.org.            3407    IN      A
badp@delta:~$ dig nethackwiki.com | grep ANSWER --context 2 | tail -n 3
nethackwiki.com.    3070    IN      A

Here's the rationale.

We'd need to:

  • check the transition doesn't break any link, and
  • update the links.
  • What is the reason for the move? Nov 15, 2010 at 12:56
  • @Fabian: see the linked discussion. Basically, it's the new layout and the social media stuff.

  • @Fabian There are other Q&A engines on the web and the content license is absolutely free, although nothing quite compares to this one yet.

    Surprisingly, there aren't any of these links in comments, so no direct diamond intervention is necessary. There are only 3 posts remaining with such links (5352, 5100, and 430). I'm going to space the edits out.

  • @badp There are clones of SE whose only difference is being open-source. (Yes, I like necromancing old threads, just to annoy you)

There aren't all that many Nethack questions, so it was simple enough (even if long) to manually accomplish this task. Thanks for bringing this up!
