Collaboration for a Public Resource

The wealth of content in a Wiki site depends on the participation of its visitors making incremental improvements. Ways to contribute include:

  • Edit the page using the 'Edit' tab above.
  • Request the creation of a new page by adding a link to potential topics, using [[ ]]
  • Additions can be point form, expanding an existing paragraph, original writing, helping correct spelling, grammar or clarity, adding wiki syntax to non-wiki content, adding links to existing internet content, etc… Additions need not be complete or even well-crafted in order to move the content building forward.
  • Discuss page concepts and content using the 'Discussion' tab above.
  • 'Watch' pages that you've edited or topics that interest you, and correct vandalism. Conceptual disagreements should be moved to the Discussion area.

Site Syntax

Notations that can be used while editing a page:

  • Sub-Headings: ==Top level sub-heading (H2)==, ===Second level (H3)===, ====Third level (H4)====, etc… An automatic table of contents will be generated using these.
  • Links: put square brackets [[ ]] around a word to create a link to an existing page, or to prompt the creation of a new page. Additional syntax permits [[<Page title for link>|<Text to appear on page>]] as well as alternate links such as [[wikipedia:<page title>|<text to appear>]].
  • Templates: {{Stub}}, {{WIP}} Work in progress. {{Wiki}} Page contains unformatted (non-wiki) content
