About this Wiki
A Wiki, or WikiWikiWeb, is a collaborative hypertext environment, with an emphasis on easy access to and modification of information.
You can edit any nearly any page by pressing the edit tab at the top of the page. And if you see clear vandalism, you can easily revert it to an earlier version.
To learn more about what a Wiki is, and why vandalism is less of a problem than you may think, see the Wikipedia page on wikis, or read about [WhyWikiWorks]. A few pages can be "protected" to cut down on wikispam. If the wiki doesn't let you edit a page, use the "discussion" tab to ask one of the sysadmins to change the page.
Interesting starting points for this wiki:
- Help:Contents: help to get you going
- Sand box: feel free to change this page and experiment with editing, because that's what it's there for
- Help:Editing: How to make links, lists, headers, etc.
- Special:Recentchanges: see which topics people are currently working on here
- Special:Popularpages: the most popular pages
- Installation experiences and information for administrators.
With this wiki software, there is a "discussion" (or "Talk") page for each normal page. Normal practice is to try to reflect the current consensus on the actual "article" pages, without attribution of who contributed what, and to use the "Talk" page (click on the "discussion" tab at the top) to talk about that consensus, in signed entries. If you "log in" (via the link in the upper right - a quick, painless process after initial email confirmation) you can easily sign and timestamp your contributions to talk pages by entering four tildas in a row: ~~~~
Another good reason to log in, is that you can mark pages you want to keep track of and track updates via my watchlist.
Please use the sand box to try things out, rather than creating new test pages.
