Wiki was one of the good articles, but it has been removed from the list. There are suggestions below for improving the article to meet the good article criteria. Once these issues have been addressed, the article can be renominated. Editors may also seek a reassessment of the decision if they believe there was a mistake.
I just visited this page for the first time, and the picture of Ward Cunningham struck me as a little odd. I expect the picture at the top of an article to be representative of the subject(so in this case, it would be a screenshot of a wiki). I suggest moving this picture to the History section.

A wiki is usually a web application which allows...
I find that to be a weak and confusing definition. Is it or is it not? In which cases is a wiki something else? Please enumerate all these exceptions. Could it be that the editor writing this had in mind "I can't be sure someone somewhere uses the term wiki for something completely different". In which case it's inappropriate to weaken our definition. At best, we should write something like "in this context, a wiki is a web application which allows..." retaining a strong definition while acknowledging other usages. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 08:33, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
Agreed. My guess is that usually went more with the statement about allowing for collaboration, and so was misplaced. Regardless, it's gone now. Thanks. --— Rhododendritestalk | 16:31, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
I propose merging City wiki into this article, under the Communities section. It's been more or less a link farm for most of its existence, and now that I've removed a sort of league table of the largest city wikis, per WP:RAWDATA, it has very little content at all. It's unlikely to ever develop into a worthwhile standalone article. — Scott•talk 15:50, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

Not done The text you wish to add is vague and would not be an improvement to this article. Sorry. — Scott•talk 11:34, 17 June 2014 (UTC)
