History Edit

The creation of the wiki was first announced by Tom Fulp in March 2010, in a post that became a long thread discussing every aspect of the wiki.

In the original post, Tom described their plans for the wiki:

"Goldfish wanted to set up a Wiki as a place to manage the upcoming API documentation, but the system is so handy that our goal is to run all the site-related docs through it. It keeps information more unified and gives us less static pages to chase down when we redesign the site."

The Wiki Editors Edit

The bulk of the wiki has been written by Psychogoldfish, beginning with porting in pages from elsewhere on the site, such as FAQ, and editing them. In the initial thread, Tom invited volunteers to assist in the creation on the wiki.
