Wiki Explanations and Guides:
Here is a small video tutorial about how a Wiki works taken from Youtube.com:
What is a Wiki?
According to Wikipedia, the world largest wiki site:
A Wiki ([ˈwiː.kiː] <wee-kee> or [ˈwɪ.kiː] <wick-ey>) is a type of website that allows users to add, remove, or otherwise edit and change most content very quickly and easily.
And that is it! As a part of Wikidot.com network this Site is a customizable piece of the Internet where Users can edit content, upload files, communicate and collaborate.
How do I edit Wiki pages or make new ones?If you are allowed to edit pages in this Site, simply click on edit button at the bottom of the page. This will open an editor with a toolbar pallette with options.
To create a link to a new page, use syntax: [[[new page name]]] or [[[new page name | text to display]]]. Follow the link (which should have a different color if page does not exist) and create a new page and edit it!
Although creating and editing pages is easy, there are a lot more options that allows creating powerful sites. Please visit Documentation pages to learn more.
What do I get from adding/editing pages? The idea is simple: Points for Participation. The more pages you add, edit or transfer from old site and edit, the larger the point reward you will received at the beginning of the following month. An LS officer will keep track of recent changes and award 1 to 5 points for each contribution you make to the site. If you reach the limit on how many points can be added for a month then the officer will roll-over any remaining points to the following month.
