Welcome![edit source]

Hi,

Welcome to the new Electowiki! See User:RobLa and Electowiki:About for notes about the migration.

Let me know on my talk page if there's anything I can help with, if you know of any deleted articles on Wikipedia that could be resurrected here, etc. There's a To do list if you're looking for something to help with.

This runs on Mediawiki, so it has a lot of the same features as Wikipedia, but is missing a few (like automatic citation generation) and has a few that Wikipedia doesn't (like support for inline YouTube videos). Images from Wikimedia Commons can be used directly without needing to be uploaded. Templates can also be transcluded from other wikis, though it's better to export and import them.

The wiki is 14 years old and has never had a ton of activity, so the goals/policies were never really solidified. Your input is welcome, especially on how to handle the separation of biased advocacy from neutral informative content (which are both welcome). See Electowiki:The caucus for the discussion topics and Electowiki:Policy. — Psephomancy (talk) 05:26, 12 January 2020 (UTC)

Quick intro[edit source]

Hi User:VoteFair, I'm 99.9% sure I know who you are from your username (just like I'm also 99.9% sure I know who User:Kristomun is, as I noted at User_talk:Kristomun), but I want to respect the privacy of users who wish to remain anonymous. It's helpful (but not required) to know identities to patrol for conflict of interest on open wikis like this. Regardless, could you fill something in at User:VoteFair, even if it's "I'm User:VoteFair and I sometimes edit Electowiki", just so that your user page isn't a redlink? :-) -- RobLa (talk) 01:19, 31 March 2020 (UTC)
