This is a page that is most useful to people active on this Wiki — people who update, comment, and otherwise interact but require a centralized place to discuss matters relating to the wiki. It is also a good place to learn about how decisions get made on Peterborough Wiki. It is a central hub for all "meta" wiki discussion pages. If you are new to the wiki, check out the Welcome to the Wiki entries. Note that much of the initial content for the Peterborough Wiki has been "seeded" by content and structure from the Davis Wiki. When looking for guidance that is a good place to go.

Managing and expanding the wiki

  • Site Organization is the central place for organization methods (such as finding pages that are linked but not created, pages that have no links to them, etc). You also might want to check out our Wiki Guide and Help with Editing to learn the basics.
  • Wiki Resources is a list of real world resources that are relevant to Peterborough and are good sources for new wiki entries.

Discussion areas

If you have any questions at all feel free to ask them — these discussion areas are probably the best for this!


  • General Discussion — General discussion of the content of the wiki, ideas, and anything you can think of should go here.
  • Technical Discussion — Geeky discussion relating to the backend of the site, potential changes, would be best here.
  • Proposals — Ideas you might have that you want to test interest in or engage in discussion over.
  • Ethics Discussion — An extended discussion area for the topic of Wiki Ethics.
  • Building Community — Discussion and resources related to community building as it relates to Peterborough Wiki.
