The software incorporates programming features such as a macro language, variables, a transclusion system for templates, and URL redirection.

Critisicm & Rumours

Sikhiwiki not run by 3HO

By (Hpt Lucky) :
"Sikhiwiki is run by 3HO and they only allow edits to be done by their people"

Reply (Hari Singh :
This is completely untrue as you know. All the active users on SikhiWiki are not part of 3HO and we have been editing and adding to SikhiWiki for a long time and in my case for many years. The statement is a lie!. So please stop these rumours and tell everyone that this is an independent site which is here to spread the true message of the Gurus. We accepts and we will help all other Sikhi sites and organisations so that the name of Sikhi can be spread far and wide.

Reply Richard:

Sardar ji, tell the girl who made that comment that she does not have the truth behind her words, I have done quite a bit of 'editing' on sikhiwiki and i do not belong to the organization and am not a Sikh. no one has ever stopped my contributions and i have on the contrary often been thanked.

i never expected any reward for my efforts on Sikhiwiki yet after you, i was given a barnstar, as well. So tell her she doesn't know of what she speaks. sikhiwiki may be an effort started by people of the organization you speak of, but if so, no one is pushing anything other than supporting Shiki and the messages and teachings of the 11 Gurus, in my opinion.

Thanks for your bursts of photography for only through your efforts, obviously supported by the people hosting this site have i been able to see many of the places you can see with your own eyes. regards richard
