Other City wikis
NYCwiki will, as it grows, establish its own guiding principles for content and behavior, meanwhile here are some early formulations:
- NYCwiki:Three keys - three "keys to the city", or fundamental principles, of the project.
- NYCwiki:Style guide - provides formatting guidelines for articles.
- NYCwiki:Message boxes - message boxes with suggestions for cleanup, etc.
NYCwiki has frequent meetings to discuss progress and ideas. Add NYCwiki:Current events to your watchlist to stay updated.
- WikiConference NYC 2010 August 28-29

- Meeting 7-13-2010 - Some pics and audio from the meeting.
Neighborhood Map Options
Geolocation and mapping implementation are a concern of many NYCwiki participants - see Neighborhood Map Options.
Also there is a NYCwiki:Map page dedicated to exploration of possible OpenPlans/OpenStreetMap cooperation.
