Purpose of the wiki? Edit

Out of curiosity, has the focus of this wiki changed? It seemed to be an inactive wiki about Africa, but from looking at the main page, it now appears to have changed to an inactive wiki about the program Wire Africa. If the Wire Africa stuff is only going to be an article or two, it seems like the main page should be returned to a state at which it covers just general Africa topics. And then hopefully it will become active for various Africa-related topics at some point. ScottW 02:39, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

Wire Africa is just one section of this wiki. I think it's ok for the main page to focus on this temporarily since there's nothing else happening, but perhaps a box should be added explaining that all Africa-topics are welcome. If sections other than Wire Africa are started, we can highlight those on the main page when they start too. Angela talk 14:31, 17 February 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, I understand that it's the only real topic covered to any extent. But my concern with the page in its current state is that it isn't inviting to someone looking to write about other Africa-related topics. Maybe if it could be made to look less like the primary focus. Not sure exactly the best way to do it though. Just something worth mulling over, I think. ScottW 01:56, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

Progress since Wire Africa has been inactive hereEdit

OK, friends, I arrived here partly by accident (after I noticed that a person using "Morocco" in his or her username had recently added a "Morocco" article to "Cities: possibly thinking it was the same as this). I've changed the emphasis of the Main Page - as discussed above - and copied lots of pages from Starter Wikia. The Wire Africa person seems not to have edited since December, but I tidied and categorised some of his material (and I looked at that organisation's rather rudimentary website, leaving an invitation to its readers to visit here). Let's see what develops! Robin Patterson 13:46, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

I like the changes. Hopefully it will invite more contributors. I've thought about creating one or more general articles on coffee in Africa, and cross-linking it with the coffee wiki. I'm on vacation for a bit, but maybe when I get back . . . ScottW 19:13, 29 July 2007 (UTC)
