Many people here refer to the wiki managed by

very strange, because a wiki is not particular to anyone. A wiki is owned by
those who use it, don't you agree?
You can call something yours if you belong
to it, as much as if it
belongs to you. That's how it is in my country, at least.
Not sure if that last sentence was also meant to be an
example :-) ...but just like that. Or "my native language"
or if you are a child and going back to "my home" when
technically, it is your parents that own it (or maybe you're
a really rich child :-) ).
But like what Chad pointed out, there are lots of people out
there that maintain wiki's for only one user. I do also and
while it might go against the spirit of what a wiki is, I
find it replaces a "permanent notebook" since I can search
through it easier than multiple pages.
