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 ... but it can only scratch the surface.

This wiki is intended to be ONLY about IBM i topics ... if someone wants to do research on an iSeries topic, they can count on the MidrangeWiki to have the information they need ... without any distracting information that isn't relevant.

So if someone does a search on RPG ... they won't get information on Role Playing Games or Rocket Propelled Grenades ... just the various versions of Report Program Generator.

This wiki's goal is depth of information, not breadth.

Proposed addition to Main Page

In the Programming section, it might be nice to have a link to the APIs article

Wiki Upgraded

I upgraded the wiki software to MediaWiki 1.15.1 and installed the OpenID authentication extension. You can now use an OpenID provider (Yahoo, Facebook, Wordpress, your own blog, etc) to login.

Please notify me or [[User:MrDolomite|Brian] if you notice any problems.
