EditThis is a wikifarm. According to our estimates, there are over 1,300 wikis. There is a 2014 backup for most of them.

This farm is quite hard to archive, because of

  • old software (MediaWiki 1.15) with several weirdnesses, both at application and webserver level (like directory structure, URL rewrites, l10n in MediaWiki namespace);
  • slow servers (even after they fixed their robots.txt);
  • very strict captcha and throttling (with unhelpful status codes);
  • number of wikis taken over by spam since 2012 or earlier.

The owner clearly has not had time to manage it properly for several years now.

Best results to complete a download with launcher.py and dumpgenerator.py have been reached with the following:

  • add --exnamespaces=8,9
  • use API and a --delay=60, wait 120 s between each wiki.

If you lower the delay too much, or forget to sleep between some kinds of requests, you can easily enter a loop of endless 503 errors and never get out of it (each request, failed or not, counts for the throttle).
