Why does ChapinWiki exist?

In 1999, Marty Acks started a Harry Chapin fan website. By 2008 the website was in need of updating. A wiki style update was chosen to simplify editing, provide built in searching, and for overall modernization of the website. Being a wiki, this web site now allow others to share what they know of Harry Chapin, his body of work, and the people and organizations he touched.

While Wikipedia is a great resource for information about famous people such as Harry, it also has notability guidelines. Much of the information in this website would not the notability test appropriate to a general purpose on-line encyclopedia, however it would be welcome here. Therefore, this wiki exists.

Guidelines

Contributions to the website are welcome and encouraged. This site uses the same software as wikipedia (mediawiki), so if you have updated wikipedia the process should be the same. If you have ideas for content but would prefer not to enter it yourself feel free to e-mail me directly. Trivia is encouraged, mind your manners, respect copyrights, and be reasonably Chapin related.
