How to choose a wiki

Wiki-based websites are by their nature, generally incomplete in their early existence. The fun part is that most Wikis are either open to the public (the Wikipedia for example), or are free to join.

Second Life-specific Wikis

This one is officially supported by Linden Lab- although it isn't open to the public, all Second Life Residents can edit and contribute.

There is a 3rd-party Wiki focused on Second Life over at Wikia- a lot of articles found there were migrated from the SL History Wiki- a Wiki website that existed before this one.

There is an SL Educators Wiki over on SimTeach.com, a Nonprofit Commons wiki (which Glitteractica Cookie is involved in) and a Business wiki on pbwiki.com.

LSL Wiki Resources

There is another Wiki that is independent of Linden lab at lslwiki.net. It contains excellent information, but the website has suffered reliability issues in the past and constant spammer attacks. In the Developer Resources list, there are three others, all of which are mirrors of lslwiki.net.

Open Sim

OpenSim, the software used in the Open Grid Public Beta, has it's own wiki
