What do you guys think about installing the MediaWiki Extension "[http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/InstantCommons InstantCommons]", which would make it possible to embed photos and other media from Wikimedia Commons? I think it would be really useful. (Of course, it's still nice to have the ability to upload stuff here locally, I'm not suggesting we turn that feature off.) -[[User:Peteforsyth|Peteforsyth]] ([[User talk:Peteforsyth|talk]]) 08:16, 28 July 2010 (PDT)

We're building a wiki for Portland, and we'd like you to help!

  • Feel free to add some article ideas or just start writing articles!
  • Are you a policy nerd? Portland wiki policies is a place to develop a baseline of policies, guiding principles, etc. for the wiki.

Other civic wikis

Many other cities have established general wikis, with varying levels of success. There is a long list at WikiIndex. DavisWiki, Santa Cruz Wiki, ArborWiki, RichmondWiki and Bloomingpedia are a few of the longer-standing and more successful ones. (also see AboutUs:List:Civic Wiki)

Suggestion

What do you guys think about installing the MediaWiki Extension "InstantCommons", which would make it possible to embed photos and other media from Wikimedia Commons? I think it would be really useful. (Of course, it's still nice to have the ability to upload stuff here locally, I'm not suggesting we turn that feature off.) -Peteforsyth (talk) 08:16, 28 July 2010 (PDT)
