Everyone is welcome to contribute to this wiki.
You should however, contact rejetto if you plan a major contribution (which is even more welcome!)

Main Icon PHnote Actually, I think you have to do that to get a username/password ... can't remember??


Sources of information

If you are in search of information about writing in a wiki, [Help] is the best we've found, so far. Many find this [Formatting] a very useful information source for layout details.


Sandbox

The above sources suggest that "If you want to try out things without danger of doing any harm, you can do so in the Meta:Sandbox".

However, we'd far rather you used your personal sandbox. You can find this under "Personal tools" in the tool bar on the right of the screen. It matches your wiki username.


Editing policy

We'd also like to remind you that, under the terms of the Project Copyright Licence, "If you don't want your writing to be edited mercilessly and redistributed at will, then don't submit it here."


Markers

Throughout this wiki you'll see mysterious PHnote markers. These simply indicate to a contributor, whose initials happen to be PH, that something here needs to be fixed. You're welcome to adopt the same technique, but please use your own initials so that we can contact you in case of difficulty.


Menus

Wrong way to do menus

Set Upload → upload for accounts → anyone

Write! way (matches software, uses italic font, and no spaces)

Set Upload→Upload for accounts→Anyone


Graphic handling

We haven't yet worked out the best way to handle screen dumps and other pictures. These are just experiments right now.
