Tips For Editing

This site is a Wiki Wiki Web -- a collaborative authoring system that allows multiple people to edit a common set of pages via the World Wide Web.

To edit a page, simply click the Edit Page link in the header or footer, and then modify the text in any way you want. Yes, you can even edit pages others have created--that's part of Wiki Nature.

The rules for basic page editing are fairly simple--start each line without spaces and put a blank line between paragraphs. There are more Text Formatting Rules for lists and other specialized text, if you want to do that. You can edit the Wiki Sandbox page if you want to try things out in a way that won't affect any of the pages on this site.

To create references to other pages, run capitalized words together to make a Wiki Word page title. This automatically creates a hyperlink. Make titles for New Subjects?, even if you don't have anything to say about them. Maybe someone will come along and fill out a page for the new link.

After you Save a page, you may need to click Reload to make your browser do a refresh. This will let you see the changes you just made. Click the ? after any new {{Wiki Word}}s to edit them and add text.

A page's full name is GroupName.PageTitle, such as Main.Home Page. To refer to a page in the current group, write its PageTitle. To refer to a page in another group, write its full name.

If the page you want to make has no natural Wiki Word title (for example it might be one word) use a Pm Wiki/{{free link|s}}.
