Former good article 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.


Proposed merge of City wiki[edit]

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)

Semi-protected edit request on 4 September 2014[edit]

Dear wiki page friend

Could you please remove the reference [40] in the paragraph Participants:

The wiki administrator maintains wiki content and is provided additional functions pertaining to pages (e.g. page protection and deletion), and can adjust users' access rights by, for instance, blocking them from editing.[40]

and replace it with the link to MediaWiki reference manual as it is more appropriate in the context

Many thanks Mbstc (talk) 16:21, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: The link is not to the MediaWiki reference manual, but rather Wikipedia's article on the software. (The actual manual is here.) But in either case, it is not a suitable source because 1) MediaWiki is not the only wiki software out there, and 2) neither of these is a reliable source because they can be edited by anyone. (That's right, Wikipedia cannot be used as a source for itself.) Anon126 (notify me of responses! / talk / contribs) 20:03, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

wiki wiki[edit]

The reduplication presumably means that the expression means very quick, not just quick. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 5.67.191.234 (talk) 15:56, 29 September 2014‎ (UTC)

That makes sense... but we should find a source before we include it.
Hawaiian grammar#Reduplication gives the following example:
  • ma'i "sick"; ma'ima'i "chronically sick"
So it looks like wiki is quick and wiki wiki is very quick... but it might be something slightly different.
