    Background Info on this page:<br>
     
    In its 'hay day' its usage was mainly to learn the syntax for formating a wiki engine we don't use anymore (called [[Usemod]]). A main reason we changed wiki engines was because of the amount of spam accumulating was really frustrating. With our new wiki engine, [[Mediawiki]], we have more precise ways of weeding out spam + an amazing amount of other features that we are still learning to incorporate.
