Getting Started

First, check out the Vancouver Wiki Guide — this is a good place to start!

A Wiki is a linked set of pages that anybody can edit and contribute to without knowing anything about websites. [wikipedia]Wikipedia is the prime example of a successful wiki project. [davis]DavisWiki is a great example of a successful community wiki. Also, check out [WWW]Why Wiki Works for some information on the philosophy of wiki.

After reading that stuff, and playing around in the Wiki Sand Box, check out our FAQ. We also have a list of All Pages in the wiki.

Feel free to make new pages — just remember to link them. Also, if you don't know where to start or don't have any ideas, check out To Do or Wanted Pages.
