Why create this Wiki when there is IBM i content on Wikipedia?
Simple really ... Wikipedia is a fine general reference... it has information about a lot of different topics ... but it only has a handful of articles on IBM i topics ... and can only scratch the surface.
This wiki is intended to be ONLY about IBM i topics ... if someone wants to do research on an IBM i topic, they can count on the MidrangeWiki to have the information they need ... without any distracting information that isn't relevant.
This wiki's goal is depth of information, not breadth.
Proposed additions to Main Page - Architecture
Can we add a section for "Architecture"? For example information on LIC/TIMI/hypervisor.
Proposed additions to Main Page
I upgraded the wiki software to MediaWiki 1.15.1 and installed the OpenID authentication extension. You can now use an OpenID provider (Google, Yahoo, Facebook, Wordpress, your own blog, etc) to login.
I purchased the domain i-wiki.net and aliased it to this site.
Any thoughts on if it should be the primary name or just an alias?
I think it should be an alias. I like the branding of midrange.com and it's various sections. --Mike 19:19, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

Current Names Needed
This site is badly in need of updating to modernize references to current names. Site should always refer first to IBM i and Power Systems (or Pure) and not the old names, unless there is a specific reason.
How relevant would the site be, if it were refering to PC's as IBM XT's, AT's, and PS/2's?
- Well, this site is community maintained ... so feel free to make updates. HOWEVER, consider that AS/400, iSeries, & System i are still commonly used names (regardless of what Trevor says), so we still want people to find content using search engines. David
