Welcome to the oldest tech notes archives

Need somethin' fixed, me old son? Just give ol' Drax a brussel sprout!

This is the home of the archives for the original tech notes forums. Most of the threads here are simply announcements about bugs, technical innovations and advice on how to use the MediaWiki software. The original board was by far the youngest forum on this wiki. Messages in this archive date between 2011 and 2012.

The currently active technical announcement board is called The Drax Cave.

Thread list

This thread list is comprised of two sections: general technical announcements and discussions about the new infobox system that debuted in 1Q 2012.
