SteadZ, Oh, that's certainly better thing! Thanks for sharing, didn't hear about this before. I was just going to say somebody with knowledge of mediawiki should still try to restore 2017 copy from archive.org, and turns out somebody already did it. That's great!

Barbie, yeah, I just like archiving stuff.
Well, I will leave my mirror to exist too, the more mirrors the better ;)

Don't know if it is just me but they look to have more or less totally different content - the one at UnrealSP.org appears to be much less complete.

Definitely isn't the entire site, but I'm going to bump with this:
viewtopic.php?f=15&t=6204&p=72570#p72570

I downloaded a bunch of UnrealScript pages from the site and other goodies years ago, dropbox link appears to still work.

This is correct yeah, when the wiki switched over to Media Wiki all of the transferred pages gained the "Legacy" prefix - if you're searching for something and it's not coming up then make sure to select the "Everything" category

That's a really great mirror!

Small suggestion, do you think you could mirror this icon: https://wiki.beyondunreal.com/w/images/OldWikiIcon.png

At the following URL: https://unrealwiki.unrealsp.org/w/image ... kiIcon.png

It would just make the "Legacy" links render similarly to how they do on the original, since they all have a gap next to them now with the image 404'ing.

Well, that's neat, I guess. Where is stuff like that communicated?
