I am a co-founder of Wikisauga. I live in Mississauga and kind of fell into the whole wiki-ing world. I find its a much more productive use of my time when compared to playing video games all time :). We're still in our infancy so I try to add a little each day, anyone is welcome to contribute!

If you're not sure where / how to get started see Introduction. You can also check out the Seed Pages List for pages that can be expanded.

You may leave questions for me personally by leaving a comment below


2007-10-10 21:09:38   Howdy! You've got a neat wiki here, and I see you're really loading info as fast as you can. I was wondering if you could add a non wiki contact info (like an email address) to your Wiki Profile on the hub. I also uploaded an image (with credit) from this wiki to give a feel for Mississauga. If you have a better one, feel free to replace it. If you ever need any help, just ask. —JabberWokky

2007-10-11 07:25:27   Hi JabberWokky, I appreciate the feedback, I'll look to set up a wikisauga email address and add it to the wiki profile hub. Thanks! —AmirSyed

2009-02-23 17:26:53   1,800th page! woot! —HimySyed

2009-08-06 22:16:03   Added a link to your site a couple of weeks ago...added another tonight for your Mystery Photo Contest - nice idea! http://truth2010.ca/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=59:local-websites-to-spend-time-considering&catid=34:truth2010-people&Itemid=41AlanForde

2009-08-17 15:35:42   Thanks, I've been neglecting the wiki but will be getting back into the swing of things. —AmirSyed

2009-08-27 12:47:35   Hi guys- tried to correct a typo on Page On (quote at bottom of page) "wwould actually increase" ...could not figure out how. Did make some other changes. Thanks for visiting my website - any constructive comments? I hope to launch it Sept 8th. cheers, Alan truth2010.ca —AlanForde

2009-09-02 12:36:34   I'm going to start adding a page for each street in Mississauga or as many as I can :). I'm probably make a template to set up the basic page and let people modify each street page. —AmirSyed

2009-10-08 14:22:04   Hello, thought I would connect you to Buffalo and Rochester where I am doing a LOT of editing - especially infrastructure. I will try to stop by occasionally and add in some more things for you and give you some hints on stuff I found useful. —BradMandell

2010-04-04 12:48:32   I see that this site's content is licensed under Creative Commons Attribution. I'd like to use it to add to the map of Mississauga at http://osm.org/go/ZX4io6q--, and need to know what kind of attribution you require. Do you need attribution on every map feature added, or is a mention on the project's wiki enough? —VictorBielawski

2010-04-07 07:21:13   Thanks! —VictorBielawski

2010-08-30 09:25:57   Doesn't matter to me about the mystery picture. IMO, the main goal for now should be to attract enough editors for the wiki to sustain itself. —VictorBielawski

2010-09-01 09:08:03   I think an easy way to encourage people to participate would be to allow anonymous edits (preferably with a captcha). I'd wager that many people who would otherwise become active users are turned away by the requirement to register. (If anonymous edits are allowed, valuable editors should regularly be nudged toward creating accounts à la Wikipedia.) —VictorBielawski
