MiddleWiki is meant to act as a first line resource for those who are new to the SCA or those who are wondering about the SCA. Think of it as a collection of answers to every question that you could get from a new person at their first event. Because the site is a wiki, visitors can create their own login accounts and then add to or update the information on the site.
MiddleWiki is keyword searchable, and you can upload files such as documents and images as well.
