Table of Contents
Welcome to the Thornton 2 Library
This wiki has a small number of purposes. The purpose that is admittedly self-serving is to continue my online journal. However, the more important purpose is to catalog information and reference data that is either in danger of becoming obscure or is already obscure.
How to use
If you've never used a wiki before, please take the wiki tour. (Link coming.)
This particular wiki (powered by Wagn) uses the concept of cards, as with index cards, postcards, or wildcards, in which the contents of other cards can be included within other cards, not merely linked from other cards, and a page can include any number of nested cards.
This is not Wikipedia, and it doesn't have the same standards as that demanded by an encyclopedia. But neither is this a humor-over-truth wiki such as ED or Uncyclopedia. Levity is welcome, if the editor deems it appropriate. If the edit button works, then you're the editor. Remember that.
Content ought to be true and factual, and sources ought to be cited where known, but content can contain opinions, personal observations, and original research. Such things should be claimed by the ones leaving such content. Use good judgement.
Comments can be left pseudonymously or anonymously whereever +discussion cards appear, but only those with accounts can create and edit other cards.
This site is under construction
Perpetually, same as with any other site. It won't be finished until it's dead. The library is usable for content browsing under Microsoft Internet Explorer, but features such as card revisions, relations, and editing are inaccessible due to the choice of CSS compliance over specific browser compatibility.
Spam and abuse
If you're here because you seem to have received spam from an address at this domain, and you're certain the spam transited this domain to reach your inbox, then please forward the sample—with full headers intact—to abuse [at] thornton2 [dot] com. Keep the following in mind.
Please make certain that the spam actually transited this domain and didn't simply forge an address: Anyone who knows how can get any email program in the world to send mail claiming to be from any email address in the world, including email addresses that don't exist. If you send abuse reports without verifying that they were sent from or through this domain's mail servers, then your abuse reports will be considered spam themselves, and you may be either blocked or reported to your own email host as a spammer.
ArielMT is aware that spam is forging non-existent addresses at this domain as the From: address, due to the number of undeliverable mail receipts bouncing back from grossly misconfigured mail servers. If you run a mail server, then please configure it not to send misdirected bounce receipts, or upgrade to a sane mail server.
