Ready to test-drive a wiki for us?
Let's start with the Glossary, which ought to be fairly controversial.http://tfwiki.org/mediawiki/index.php?title=Main_Page
We're using the same software the underlies Wikipedia, so it should be a familiar environment for most of you.
You are free to edit any entry, period.
You are not required
to register, although we do track IPs, so if you misbehave we'll lock you out pretty quick, and reverse the offending edits.
The benefits of registering? Your edits will include your username, and your peers can e-mail you off-line. I recommend registration.
Ken Rower and I are the ultimate arbiters of content and behavior, but we expect to have no work to do.
The power of the collective knowledge and experience of our contributors will make this Glossary far more complete and valuable as a resource than it would ever be as the creation of just a few.
This advice from the MediaWiki site:
"Editing rules, editing conventions, and formatting
The number one rule of wiki editing, is to be bold. Dive in and make changes. Other people can correct mistakes later, so have confidence, and give it a try!
There can be all kinds of editing conventions, rules, and philosophy governing the editing of wiki pages, but the "be bold" rule overrides these!
In general try to write clearly and concisely and make sure you are always aiming to do something which improves the wiki contents. An edit might be to contribute whole paragraphs or pages full of information, or it could be as simple as fixing a typo/spelling mistakes.
When you need to use some type of formatting e.g. new headings or bold text, you do this using wiki syntax, see Help:Formatting for some of the common types of formatting used."
That's enough overhead for now.
Jump in; let's see how we do.
