Penguicon.info is the “back end” of the Penguicon planning process. You might call it the “behind the scenes” stuff. This is where we will coordinate all of our work, keep our notes, and hopefully keep track of our learning from year to year. To that end, we have information stored in namespaces for past penguicons (viewable from the Index button below) and our current stuff (which will soon be linked from here, or viewable from the Index button below.
A wiki is a really great way for us all to collaborate and information share, but only if we use it in a reasonably intelligent fashion. Communication is essential. Here are some tips to get you started:
First, make sure you read the Syntax Guide
. Bookmark it. Cherish it. Refer to it often. Additionally, you can do an edit of a page that looks similar to what you are trying to accomplish and see how the editor of that page did it. If you just want to play around to see how things work, please, use the playground
If you think you need a new page created, please do the following first:
See if the content that you wish to add wouldn't really be better served in an existing page. Having an entire page for a sentence or two is a messy way to collaborate. Remember, this is not an encyclopedia, but a method of working together.
Determine what the best name would be for the page
Send an email to James
detailing the page you would like created and what will be on it.
When making edits, please explain your edit in the Edit summary. While it might seem self explanatory to you, it might not be to the rest of us.
Create a section at the bottom of your page called Todo List. Under here, list things that need to be done to the page. This might be the most important thing you can do as it serves two important purposes:
It allows others to know what is in the works so they don't do work that would mess that up.
It gives others a chance to help out. If you need to add a series of links, someone else with time on their hands might come by and do it for you if you give them a chance.
Pass on thoughts, comments, questions, or concerns so that we can make this more useful and more effective as a tool.
