http://gentoo-wiki.com/Special:Recentchanges

as of right now, there are several wiki-pages changed from ip 221.221.5.228 that link to some site with a japanese domain name. it looks to me like a hack of some sort. does this sort of disruption happen often?

They didn't get hacked, they got spammed.

The admin will resolve it by reverting all changes done by that IP address. Send some emails if you think it'll help, but I'm pretty sure they'll notice on their own.

It's one of the problems of freely editable wikis, mostly it's quickly resolved though.

Not sure where this was (before Chat), but its not really Gentoo related.

It was in "Other Things Gentoo." The one that says, "Still need help and your question doesn't fit in the above forums? Here is your last bastion of hope."

It may be beyond the purview of these forums, but after being up all night, I wanted a little sanity check.

Yes. Since its a Gentoo support forum, I guess we erroneously made the assumption that "doesn't fit in the above forums" still qualified as a Gentoo support forum. I've updated the description...

"Still need help with Gentoo, and your question doesn't fit in the above forums? Here is your last bastion of hope."

Ah, well that entire supersection of the forums is for "Assistance", and this isn't a support question, you see : )

I'd have thought Gentoo Chat would be a reasonable place since gentoo-wiki provides a valuable gentoo-related service and OTW is "...Linux issues not related to Gentoo? Or anything else...?"

But pjp's criteria is official gentoo projects, and that's fine to. I just wish "official" appeared somewhere in the Gentoo Chat description to make this distinction blindingly obvious : )

Still inactive, but there is a new site:
http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Main_Page

Maybe they should move gentoo-wiki there... :twisted:
