2018

  • Sometime during the summer in 2018, I was reading through the main Humanity+ website. I had heard about H+Pedia before but this was the first time I linked through. My landing point, or the first article I remember, was History of transhumanism with the video of Adam Ford interviewing Nick Bostrom. Dalton Murray (talk) 03:13, 20 January 2019 (CST)
  • David Pearce recommended it as a warmer, more inclusive and welcoming alternative to Wikipedia. Landing point: Articles for Creation — Cheers, Babelfish (talk) 09:18, 7 March 2018 (CST)

2017

  • Saw it linked on Reddit in the sidebar of /r/Transhumanism. The wiki Main page is mesmerizing ;) --Microdot (talk) 04:26, 20 March 2017 (CDT)

2016

  • Probably something I saw on Facebook. I have a love/hate relationship with Facebook, but it seems to be what we're stuck with for now. Delton (talk) 19:01, 26 March 2016 (CDT)
  • Got interested of the idea of this site and ultimately want to create the Furry fandom, Biopunk pages as two of few things start and also heard in Facebook around Late December 2015/Early January 2016. Chad The Humanoid-Goatman (talk) 20:05, 26 March 2016 (EST)

2015

  • July 17th 2015 David Wood announced to Transhumanist Party (UK) the foundation of the site. Since I've been involved in wikis for years, this was immediately of interest to me. After David's hard work populating much of the site up to this point on the 17th of October I started with Transhumanist political organisations and never looked back!

  • Various members of the Humanity+ Board had a number of discussions during summer 2015 about the desirability of creating a site such as H+Pedia. These discussions accelerated in an email thread on July 11th, during which Ben Goertzel recommended Siteground to me as a hosting service for H+Pedia. (The OpenCog wiki and Hanson Robotics wiki had both used Siteground and found it good.) I took the initiative to create the site and to write a small number of initial articles. One of the very first pages created was this archive of the "H+Pedia plan". David W. Wood (talk) 19:15, 26 March 2016 (CDT)
  • Bgoertzel has not explained how and why he started the wiki
