This is the MMVL's Wiki. Feel free to have a look at the information, we have published here! The MMVL's MediaWiki is read-only for anonymous users.
The MMVL's MediaWiki is read-only for anonymous users. MediaWiki (https://sourceforge.net/projects/wikipedia/) is a Sourceforge (https://sourceforge.net/) software project with 66 members at the moment. This software is being used to host the world's largest Wiki-Site: the Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page). Despite of the fact, that everyone can edit it, the Wikipedia seems to be quite stable by a continuous effort of users and administrators. The MediaWiki has powerful concepts like watchlists, discussion pages and blocking of IP-addresses and users to prevent vandalism.
For playing the videos under Microsoft Windows we recommend DivX player (https://www.divx.com/), and for playing under Linux we recommend MPlayer (https://www.mplayerhq.hu/) or Xine (https://www.xinehq.de/).
Unfortunately at the moment the access restrictions for all users are the same. Implementing user permissions is not an easy task (think about the special pages like Special:Recent Changes or the search page f.e.). This feature already is planned in the form of Access control lists (https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Access_control).
For the moment we are using several Wiki systems, which are running in parallel. That's why you'll maybe have more than one user-account (and more than one password is possible). When the user-access levels have been developed by the MediaWiki-community, it'll be possible to merge all Wiki-systems and User-databases into a single system.
