Contributing to the Wiki[edit]

These pages are organized as a Wiki, which means that anybody can change them or add new pages. You don't have to have a user name to change them, but we'd prefer that you take the time to create your own account and log in so that your edits can be attributed - this way they will carry more weight and are less likely to be questioned or reverted.

Getting help[edit]

We have deliberately chosen MediaWiki for this service, since the interface is almost identical with Wikipedia. Wikipedia has a large number of help and tutorial pages, and the basics will also apply to this wiki. See below if you have problems.

Problems?[edit]

Please email any problems or questions about this website to Scott Weston. If you need help, Greg Lehey may also be able to help.
