This page is part of the Wiki Community collection.  If you're interested in getting more involved with the project, brainstorm ideas for content development, or if you'd like to meet the team that's heading up the efforts to build momentum, head on over to the Twin Cities Wiki Discussion Group on Facebook and check out the rest of the wiki community pages. 


The Twin Cities Wiki is a collaborative, non-profit, community effort to build an information source about all things Twin Cities.  We seek to build a fun, interesting, and informative wiki that is chock full of cool information and images.

A wiki page can be about nearly anything related to the Twin Cities.  You can write about something in your town, your favorite place to hangout, an interesting tidbit of history, or you could even take pictures of interesting things around town and start a page about them.  This is a community, collaborative project meaning that the community can build it as they want.


Getting Started

So you want to get involved in the wiki?  We are glad you came by.  Below are some ways you can get further involved with the wiki.

  • Create an account - You can create an account before you edit a page if you wish. It is a really good idea to use your real name when signing up because it helps start the process of establishing identity here with other editors. For example, JohnSmith.
  • Practice creating and editing pages with the Twin Cities Wiki Sandbox.  You can add and edit text and images and more.
