The '''Moped Army''' is a group of avid [[moped]] riders, originally formed as the [[Decepticons]] in 1997.  Eventually, as other moped riders showed an interest in creating their own branches associated with the Decepticons, the Moped Army was formed, with the Decepticons summarily becoming a branch of the Moped Army.

This wiki, brought to you by the [[Moped Army]], is dedicated to information about [[moped]]s.
 
  
Expanding it to become the ultimate moped resource will require your help, not only in adding new information but also in editing and adding to what others have written. On a wiki, everyone is able to create and edit new pages; this is a collaborative process where no one person owns the authorship on a particular article.
+
The organization is comprised of self-governing branches which implement their own criteria regarding membership and organize their own activities.
  
Moped Wiki is for factual knowledge and information. Please continue to use the [http://www.mopedarmy.com/forums/ forums] or [http://theothermopedarmy.chatango.com/ chat] for general discussion and debates with other moped enthusiasts.

The Moped Army recognizes three classes of members:

* '''Members''', who are active within their branch

* Just type in a wiki URL that doesn't yet exist
 
  
As things fill, pages will be interconnected through links. You can help this by remembering to add wiki links on keywords in an article you write, even if they don't exist yet. Also, please remember to link any articles you write into the appropriate category or categories.

The term Moped Army also refers to a graphic novel of the same name authored by Paul Sizer.

The Moped Army is a group of avid moped riders, originally formed as the Decepticons in 1997. Eventually, as other moped riders showed an interest in creating their own branches associated with the Decepticons, the Moped Army was formed, with the Decepticons summarily becoming a branch of the Moped Army.

The organization is comprised of self-governing branches which implement their own criteria regarding membership and organize their own activities.

The Moped Army recognizes three classes of members:

  • Members, who are active within their branch
  • Scouts, who have left the geographic boundaries of their branch, and
  • Honorary, who have helped the development of a branch without necessarily having become a member.

Each branch, further, keeps a list of retired and deceased members.
