Find A Website: Funny Community Wiki Site w/ Case Studies of Fictional Occult Objects

The titles for the show "Hotbox" remind me of a wiki-based community site I saw a while ago. Every article on the site is a dry, passive-voice case study of some (usually hilariously dangerous) fictional occult object or person, and the site itself is allegedly run by some giant MIB-style organization. The site has very specific acronyms and vocabulary, and I can't remember any of it except that agents are called agents and there's a running joke about appropriate euphemisms for when they're killed.

Help me learn to template MediaWiki

I am trying to find concise, direct instructions on how to create templates (not skins, templates) for MediaWiki and I'm coming up short. While Google has tons of hits, many incorrectly identify skins as templates, and the rest spread the information out through so many other topics that it is simply frustrating. Is there a resource out there that will help me develop MediaWiki page templates in a step-by-step fashion?

So, I want a wiki? Or... something else? What. What do I want?

I am managing research on a book. The author and I live 2800km apart and I think I want to work through a wiki. As I gather data and articles and she writes her chapters, I want all our source material and links to be building momentum, stored in one hooded online space. So I THINK that what I want is a wiki to share/organize research for the book. Do I? [more inside]

Reconstituting a wiki database from html?

I'd like to reconstitute a years-defunct wiki I used to collaborate on. I've contacted the principals, & our searches for the database backup have come up empty so far. Without having the original database, the simplest path appears to be taking the html & transforming it into, say, an sql dump. So - how do I do that? Are there any MediaWiki, database, or Perl trails to follow?
