ITT: Lrn2wiki There's probably other posts that explain this but since a lot of current conversation sounds something like 'how is wiki formed? how pages get written?', here are a couple of tutorial resources for how wikis work and how to contribute to them: Absolute introduction What is a wiki? tl/dr: Your basic wiki is a database full of user-editable web pages. Anybody can revise and alter the content on them. Wikis also provide a way to look at older revisions and see what has changed, as well as ways to 'revert' back to older forms of content. There are a few different styles of editing syntax (text formatting and so on) for different types of wiki. Wikipedia and chanology wikis are mostly if not always based on the Mediawiki software, so what works on wikipedia mostly works elsewhere.

Non Hubbard's instructions) Main Page - Operation Translation register for a user account. Otherwise, even if you're able to edit, the wiki software usually displays your IP on edits, which fails at anonymous. Then find something that interests you and suits your skill set and do it faggot. [size=-2]Warning: do not take your newfound skills straight into editing hotly contested wikipedia pages. Lurk moar first, and if you are motivated to make edits to wikipedia, check out the discussion page attached to the page in question first and make sure you're not making the same edit that five other [strike]trolls[/strike]souls have been fighting an edit war over for the last month.[/size] Anatomy of a wikipedia page Each wiki page has multiple tabs; article , discussion (or talk), history .... sometimes more. On Wikipedia, these tabs appear on the top of the page and look like this: On the End The Cult wiki, they look slightly different, but they are still there (on the right of the page): Discussion pages Changes to the article can be discussed on the talk ('discussion') page (maybe better than in threads where the comment will get lost). Viewing and reverting page edits The 'history' page shows the edits that have been made to the article. On this page, it is possible to compare different versions of the page (select the page versions using the radio buttons in the list, and click 'compare selected versions) and to undo changes that have been made, using the 'undo' link. On the front page of the wiki site there will be something called "recent changes"; this is a long list of the most recent edits that have been made. The (diff) link shows the differences between edits that have been made. Talk/user pages Each user has a "talk page" and a "user page". The user page is basically like your user profile page. And you can leave messages on other users talk page (when they log in or receive a new message, you get a banner at the top of the screen). Talk pages / comments between users are obviously public. you should try and use what is known as "4 tildes" which is Do this whenever you leave a comment on an article's talk / discussion page or someone's profile page so that they know who left it and are left a link to your user page / talk page.
