Anyone Can Edit this Website

Editing this wiki has been suspended pending the new site redesign.

This site uses a "skin" or visual theme written by Paul Gu which is different from the default "Monobook" skin included in the Mediawiki software. The navigation normally present on the left-hand side of the page is now in pull-down menus at the top of the page, with a few of the links at the bottom (e.g., for Special Pages and privacy policy). The search box is at the very top of the page, and the controls for editing and viewing history are in the dark bar above.

Getting started on browsing

Start with Category:Top to browse through the curated content. Unfortunately, the wiki is loaded with many thousands of pages of robot-generated spam that will be removed over the next several months, starting in September 2016.

As of August 2016, User:Amorrow and User:NeoPhyte Rep are two of the few users that have been doing maintenance on this wiki in the past few years.

Interwiki Links

Interwiki links enable you to easily link from one wiki to another, and to transclude content from one wiki into pages on another wiki.

  • To link to a page on another wiki, use the syntax: [[:site-prefix:page-name]]
  • To transclude content from another wiki, use the syntax: {{:site-prefix:page-name}}

This wiki is configured with the standard MediaWiki Interwiki table, which includes entries for popular wiki sources such as Wikipedia. This has been extended with these sites:

Wiki Site Interwiki site prefix Transcludable? Example
Seneca CDOT seneca Yes [[:seneca:CDOT]]
Fedora Project fedora Yes [[:fedora:PackageMaintainers]]
Mozilla mozilla Yes [[:mozilla:Education]]
