Some advantages of the mirroring arrangement:
  
Apparently a small group of vandals have attacked the Acorn Cafe, and had also planned to attack the Wiki.

* Increased exposure for articles

* Added redundancy (in case of server failure, etc.)

* Potentially increased local server performance (due to redundancy)
  
However, we seem to have avoided any mishaps; entirely thanks to Winston, Midnight Man, Silver Shadow and Alain, who all let me know that something was up. Thanks guys!

Disadvantages of the mirroring arrangement:
  
I will be investigating options for tightening security for the Wiki, but in the meantime existing members should be unaffected.

* For [[Mirrored Articles|mirrored articles]], you should - wherever possible - make your changes on both pages (both here and the linked mirror article on [http://fanhistory.com/ Fan History Wiki]). See [[Mirrored Articles]] for details.
