Hello. I’m new to this forum and DokuWiki in general, so I need to know if you take kindly to MediaWiki users  :-)

Just remember that the markup is different.  Don't do what a former colleague did; import pages from my DW site and paste them in a MW site - then accuse me of not knowing how to do the markup!  (I've been editing WP for nearly 10 years and could tech him a thing or two).

I think MediaWiki's markup is horrible. I really, really like Dokuwiki's markup instead and that was a major factor when I decided which software to use back in 2007. I also like that Dokuwiki's files are easily-readable text files that can survive even if my database server is down and Dokuwiki is somehow broken.

I don't have any issues with mediawiki users though.
