    Well, well, well... It has been a long time, hasn't it.

    I've been away living my life but I have still been keeping my eye on the wiki (you can read that last bit in a creepy voice if you want :P ).

    Let's be honest - since the wiki was founded a huge amount has changed, not just in the Tekkit universe, but also in the much wider Mincraft one too! However, there is no escaping the fact that Tekkit Classic has defiantly had it's heyday - This wiki was once the 5th most popular wiki on Wikia and was getting over 8 Million views a week! Now it has fallen to a much more modest 185th place and is obviously getting far fewer views.

    But, people are still using it, quite a lot - given how old Tekkit Classic is, and edits are still being made!

    So I thou…

    New staff needed!

    November 8, 2013 by Watson 777

    Yes, you read it correctly! We are looking for some fresh pairs of hands to help out on the wiki.

    It's great to see everyone so keen to help! I will reply to all of you over the next week or so. Please make sure the have read the criteria before you apply.

    But... let me say first of all, that we are not looking to hire any new administrators (sysops). Also, if you have the "NEW EDITOR" tag on your profile page, you cannot apply for any of these positions. Nor if you have under 40 edits.

    So, with that said, the positions that are up for grabs are:

    • 2 Chat moderators
    • 2-4 Forum moderators
    • Rollbackers

    These people will need to be very level headed and be able to help users. But being able to laugh is still important!

    Forum moderators are going to be a …

    Updates to the forums

    November 8, 2013 by Watson 777

    As the title suggests, this blog is about some updates I've made to the Forums!

    Here is the list of changes:

    1. The "News and Announcements" board has been renamed to "Wiki News and Announcements" and, just to remind you all, you should NEVER create a thread in that board! It is for admins only.
    2. The "Hello & Welcome" board has been completely removed. This was, firstly, due to the fact that users were using it to ask questions that should have been in the "Questions and Answers" board and, secondly, that 99% of the users that used it to say hello were anonymous users (users without an account) that would only say the word "hi" or "hello" in a thread. All posts from that board have been moved into the "General Discussion" board.
    3. We now have a new…

    Userpage Updates

    November 2, 2013 by Watson 777

    Hello everybody!

    This is just a quick heads-up to let you know that I've updated the Userpage Template (the default one that gets created when you create a profile on this wiki).

    This change will only affect new profiles from now on. However, some of you will have seen that I've been editing quite a few profiles (when I say "a few" I mean over 200). This is because of a bug that made certain userpages show up in the "Pages with broken file links" page, despite not having any missing file links.

    Anyway it's all fixed now.

    While I'm on the subject of profiles, if you haven't already done so, why not update your userpage to be a bit more... "you"!

    If you're logged in all you need to do is go to your profile by clicking your name in the top right o…

    For most of you, this is the news you have been waiting for. There is a new wiki for the new Tekkit!

    But that's not all...

    Most of you will know that a new version of Tekkit has been released, taking the modpack in a very exiting direction, casting aside some of the old, stagnant mods (namely RedPower and IndustrialCraft) and adding new, fresh, mods with a lot going for them.

    One of which is none other then Galacticraft! That's right folks, Tekkit has gone intergalactic!

    So, all-in-all, it's a pretty fantastic release.

    Now... you would be right in thinking that I was over the moon (no pun intended) to have yet another awesome Tekkit modpack... but... it did put me in a bit of a dilemma.

    As most of you regulars will know, I founded the Tekkit Lit…
