Page Preview
  • Page Preview (Pictured) has been enabled on CanadianWiki. You will now be able to preview a page by moving your mouse over a blue hyperlink, and it may also generate an image. This is available on most web browsers but, is not compatible on Mobile View.
  • YouTube it - CanadianWiki recently allowed editors to embed YouTube videos on CanadianWiki articles. We would like to remind editors to use this feature sparingly and, ensure these YouTube videos don't violate the CanadianWiki Terms of Service and, must be in good taste. Editors can delete such links from an article if editors feel such videos are in bad taste.
  • Time Zone - CanadianWiki has changed the server time zone to America/Halifax (-3GMT Daylight Time) or (-4GMT Standard Time), to reflect the actual date and time of the server location. Time will change automatically between Daylight Time (March to November) and Standard Time (November to March). You edits will also reflect this time change, so if you are in Pacific Time in Canada or the United States of America, your edits will reflect the time zone of Atlantic which is one hour ahead of Eastern Time.
  • Mobile View - CanadianWiki has finally got Mobile View working after months of trying. Mobile users will now be able to see a sleek version of CanadianWiki, and makes it much easier to use CanadianWiki than using the desktop version. Editors are now able to login using Mobile View as well as through the desktop mode. Mobile users are still able to switch between desktop and mobile but, mobile version on mobile devices is the default setting.

Can I be an Administrator?

You could be one of them. CanadianWiki is 100% dependent on volunteers to write articles, edit (improve articles), no matter who you are or where you are located at. CanadianWiki does accept requests or nominations for adminship, visit CanadianWiki:Requests for adminship/Nominate to begin the process. Once CanadianWiki or an administrator on behalf of CanadianWiki contacts you or responds to your request to become an administrator, you will be granted adminship for a term period no longer than 1 year. If you have been granted adminship, it is your duty to know when the term expires and you will be expected to request another term of one year but you should include that you are currently an admin. Consistent admins who have demonstrated leadership, terms can be extended for longer than one year to permanent. If you have been denied administrator status, an administrator will inform you as to the reason for the decline. CanadianWiki is fair and to ensure we are fair to everyone, you MUST NOT include personal details and, limit your request to your time at CanadianWiki as an editor.

Protect Your Account

  • CanadianWiki has enabled the ability to use Two factor Authentication which, allows a registered user to input a code using a mobile phone while trying to login on a device that is not known and/or, a browser where you did not save your login credentials. You are capable of using popular Authenticators like Google Authenticator and Microsoft Authenticator. How does it work? You will attempt to input your user name and password. Once authenticated with CanadianWiki, you'll be prompted to enter a code. You will open your authenticator and input the CanadianWiki code which refreshes every several seconds. Do you need internet access for that? No however, you will need to allow your authenticator to download new codes to your phone every so often. Yes, it may sound complicated but, the authenticator will ask you to point your camera to the code box provided by CanadianWiki, and you will be ready to go. Two Factor Authentication can be used on a lot of platforms like Google including YouTube, Facebook, Microsoft Account and more. Two Factor Authentication is a great way to secure your account should someone guess your login information or, have your credentials stolen by a computer virus. One thing we should mention is, at this time, we are unable to remove Two Factor Authentication from your account, so if you forget your password, you will need to do a password recovery. Once we are able to remove Two Factor Authentication, we will edit this section. To enable Two Factor Authentication, visit your Preferences and Two Factor Authentication is listed in Basic Information. Visit MediaWiki for more information
