    When I try to use the Special:ListUsers that I've been advised by help articles to use, it comes up as "undefined" - when I try other special tags, it leads me to a 404 - experimental page. 

    There visual format on this page is really intense and I am hoping to be an active contributor and help make the page better - but I can't tell if it belongs to someone. Some of the oldest edits I can find on random pages seem to belong to content team members? 

    Thanks from a newb here.

    • Looks like it’s a wiki built on the Community Builder, a (failed) experiment. It doesn’t run on MediaWiki, so does not use the concept of special pages. You’d best ask at Special:Contact.

    • The last time I checked on the project, they hadn't implemented the equivalent of admins. Or, at least, the group was mostly nominal. I hadn't thought of it before but this post got me wondering what will happen to the CB wikis now the CB development has been abandoned.

    • Thanks, the CB distinction was the missing piece. Couldn't find info about it on help pages so I appreciate the info. I've submitted a help request to see what can be done to save or fix the problem.

    • If you don't mind, could you tell us what they say? I am curious myself now.

      I also got a response from tech support with the same solution, but he also said they are planning to migrate all the CB communities, but there isn't a set time frame for that, so best course of action is to create a new one entirely with a deviation of the name and then later they can switch the URL once the CB page is dissolved or migrated.

    • I see. Out of fairness to the founders of the CB wikis, I hope Wikia gives them a chance to reclaim the converted wikis before granting redirects to MW wikis. I mean, Wikia kind of tricked people into using CB so, for the most part, you can't really say the founders knew what they were getting into.

      Thanks for the update.
