2018-09-19 note from RobLa

I've set up https://electowiki.org as a domain that points here. https://wiki.electorama.com still exists, but we'll gradually deprecate it as the content settles in over here. Elements of wiki.electorama.com will remain over at a static site at electorama.com.

2018-09-01 note from Psephomancy

This is a mirror of Electowiki, for trying out Miraheze hosting.

The original is at https://wiki.electorama.com/wiki/Main_Page


Any changes to the original after 2018-08-26 are not included here.

Both wikis are licensed under CC BY-SA.

Edit histories imported from the old wiki contain names like imported>RobLa instead of RobLa, though user pages were imported, too. So you can take a user like imported>Username and visit that user's page at https://electowiki.org/wiki/User:Username . Hopefully this meets the criteria for attribution required by the CC BY license.

We will modify the edit histories to link directly to user pages if that becomes possible in the future. See https://phabricator.miraheze.org/T3624

The site is currently hosted on the Miraheze wiki farm, which is volunteer-run and funded entirely by donations.

2005 original "About" page

Electowiki was launched by Dan Keshet on January 26, 2005, as a new free-content wiki dedicated to discussing election-methods related material. This wiki is intended first and foremost for the election-methods@electorama.com and Electorama community. The site is administered by Dan Keshet and Rob Lanphier. For more information about why this resource was created (i.e. why not just use Wikipedia?) as well as other information, see the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) list.
