A new wiki has been setup discussing everthing to do with NZ connectivity...

- Internet service providers
- Mobile serive providers
- Landline service providers

It is still been built/addd to so is not yet conclusive, but in each fo the fields above covers areas such as

- A list of all the providers
- Plans/Price comparisons
- Troubleshooting
- Settings
- Explanations of technology used
- Detailed writups of each provider
- Links to providers and references


It has huge potential to be a great information base for all those wanting to find out the latest about ISP's, compare plans, etc etc...
Great for all those who discuss and bebate ISP's and alike on the Geekzone forums...add your expereinces to the Wiki!

Check it out now, add some more information or take what you need from it...

Contributions are welcome and needed as there is plenty to be added yet...

Can be found here:

Cokemaster....with me being a big contributor (he told me off it at the start and asked for help)

We have added alot of information, and its now at a stage where it has some purpose, so can be opened up to everyone to read and edit as they need...

Many hands make light work

Cheers for the contributions to date, good work.

May I suggest when adding links, to keep internal links related to connectivity issues....other links, for example 'Auckland', if added can be external links, linked to maybe Wikipedia itself.

Internal (directly related to NZ connectivity)
Internet Plan-Pricing Comparisons

External (nothing to do with NZ ISP's, Mobile or Landline providers)
Auckland

Links to Wikipedia would be unfeasable in the long run as your wiki would require hard hyperlinks to Wikipedia, not like the internal links.

If there is some other way to implement this, just tell me. I know a little more than the basics of wikis, so don't expect me to know what you might be thinking.

I spose theres 3 options...

1) Link using the full address to the linked page
eg. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auckland Auckland]
Result: Auckland

2) Link using an 'interwiki link'
eg. [[Wikipedia:Auckland]]
Result: Wikipedia:Auckland

3) Dont link at all (if nothing to do with NZ connectivity issues)

Its proberly just easier to not link at all to issues outside the scope of NZ connectivity...
Otherwise the job becomes to big and there are many non existant/to be edited/created links...

But it is a Wiki, so its open to all ideas, views, changes etc...

What version of MediaWiki are you using? It seems a little older than ones used say, in Wikipedia.

Also, you should install / copy some very useful php files (e.g. Cite.php)

Just a heads up.

Its using version 1.11.

I tried adding Cite, however, kept erroring out. I'll look at it later.

Well done Cokemaster, Bartender and others Smile

That is an awesome resource, all in the one place.  Sorry I haven't had time to contribute yet.

Maybe over the holidays?
