There are some good notes in the page at
I'm wondering what factors you consider when creating a page at
cascadia.wiki vs editing an existing page on the wikimedia wikis?
I'm a moderate mergist at heart, especially regarding backstage/help
pages, because I believe that can solve the issues with
* information-fragmentation (with some or all pages getting out of date),
* user-search (a centralized hub will contain more keywords, and be
more widely linked-to),
* and watchlisting (more eyeballs means more chances of one person's
update inspiring someone else to add or tweak some details)
** More watchlisting also means more people to potentially join
discussions or ask/answer questions on the talkpage.
I see these as potential locations for merging your notes to:
and possibly some new learning patterns for
I'd be interested in your perspective on all this.

on our wiki, this will make preparation easier going forward. Please
contribute your ideas and feedback. You can adapt this general guide for a
specific focus or editathon by copying it to a new page and adapting there.
