This page describes how to contribute to this wiki, and things that need to be done as well. Wikipedia's guide has a good overview of contributing, but this page is specific to this Wiki.

A large problem we've had is page and/or category fragmentation and out of date information.

Editing this wiki

  • Don't create a page unless you have a lot to write about. In most cases, this is better suited to be added to an existing page such as Class Software.
  • If you create a page, add it to applicable categories or pages so people actually discover it.
  • Don't create a category unless there are several pages that are in it.
    • People don't navigate the wiki using categories. Instead, use terms you think people will use to search for your page.
  • Explore Existing categories
