Amiga FAQ wiki
Hey folks,

Have just been looking through the Amiga FAQ wiki, and it has the potential to be really useful I think, though sadly has fallen out of date.

I know the whole point about wikis is that anyone can edit them, but I was thinking of slowly going through and cleaning up existing pages and correcting broken links etc. However because there's quite a lot which needs updating, I don't want to step on anyone's toes or upset anyone, or publish incorrect information - I was thinking maybe if I use this thread for whenever I substantially revise a page, then if anyone wants to they can check it, make corrections themselves or let me know here.

I've just done a 'test edit' on the page for Workbench packs, which still listed AIAB which as far as I know is no longer updated or readily available.


Any thoughts (on this page or the idea in general)?

Hmmm... I'll take that lack of response as a 'no-one cares' then.

Well as it is a wiki I'll just work on updating it piecemeal and announcing any substantial changes here, for people to look at, amend or ignore as they see fit! :)

EDIT: Incidentally, who are the 'wiki managers' who can create new pages? The link from the wiki home page just takes me to the EAB moderators - is it all moderators, or just global moderators, or just RCK?

Although i can't offer any help in updating etc, it could obviously do with being as update as poss, i have used the forums to find out most of what i need to know, but failing that i would go to wi-ki

If anyone's interested (unlikely?) I've just updated and cleaned up the following few pages:

Have completely rewritten the 'Amiga Today' FAQ as it was completely outdated:


Have also expanded the Amiga hardware page, with a list of all 'classic' and 'new' Amiga models with links:


There may well be some factual errors, so if you spot any either correct it yourself or leave a reply here and I'll correct it myself.

PS I did also update another page the other day but I forgot which one! Oops...

Nice work so far antonvaltaz :great
Just about the kickstarts on the hardware page : A1000 should be 1.1 (or 1.0 - 1.1) and A500 1.2 - 1.3 :)

DamienD 06 December 2009 20:56

Thread moved from the "project.EAB" section to the "project.Wiki" section ;)

antonvaltaz 06 December 2009 21:09

ooops, missed that forum... it would seem a more logical place for it! :-)

DamienD 06 December 2009 21:26

No problem. It's good to see a new thread in this section ;)

Good work with doing the updates :great

antonvaltaz 08 December 2009 16:19

A few more updates:


As ever, if there are any errors, suggestions etc then put them here (or edit the page directly yourself).

EDIT: Forgot, I also updated the frontpage / menu links to be a little more logical / consistent.

Sorry I'm probably just being thick... which resource?

TCD 08 December 2009 16:29

Oh, right at the top :nervous I thought it would be within the other links. Sorry, next time I have a second look ;)
