The password protection is something I suggested, too. But it would only tie the wiki stronger to MDL which unwanted due to the increased exposure. The entire site is still there so I can re-open as soon as the mods give me the go-ahead. As I said earlier I am willing to give full control to any MDL moderator, my only motivation is to help out noobs. I still believe it was a good idea but since MDL is choosing to "lay low" for a while, I will respect that until I hear otherwise.
