Wiki Pages are one of the largest parts of the Elftown community, and it would be a great benefit to you if you knew how to access them and join them.

Joining a wiki steps

The first thing to do is to click on the 'wiki' button which you can see in the top navigation bar. This will bring you to the wiki Index.

You will see a link to The Wiki's Wiki Page. Clicking on this link will bring you to an indexed guide to a majority of the public wiki pages.

If you go to The Wiki's Wiki Page, you can search through the links for a page you may be interested in. Once you find an interesting one, click the link.

Once the wiki page has loaded, take a look around, Some wiki pages have member sections that you can add your name to, some you need to contact the owner (who will normally state this). Other wiki pages just let anyone and everyone be a member.

The next thing to do is to start watching the wiki. You should do this so that you know when the page has been edited, or someone has made a comment. (Sometimes it is wise to watch all the sub-wiki pages of the wiki page)
- Scroll to the bottom of the wiki page and click on the button 'Start watching this wiki page'


Go or return to:
-The wiki-index
-The help index
-The How do I? Index

2004-11-19 [Janouk]: *points finger up* Miss, I found a spelling error! *grins* I noticed the word 'being' in the sentence:You will see a link to The Wiki's Wiki Page.etc. Shouldn't that be 'bring'?

2004-11-19 [font]: [Shreya] only checks my errors :P So it should be Sir :P And you are right it should be bring :)

2005-04-15 [*Night_Shade*]: You people are worried about typos? life lol

2005-04-16 [Ocean Dreaming]: *chuckles* Writers, rather ;) We always worry about our spelling and grammar.

2005-04-16 [*Night_Shade*]: Well, I must be the odd writer who doesn't...of rely's on spell check a little much...heh

2005-04-16 [font]: Spell check might check spellings, but it does not always check for the right spelling. Besides in a multinational community spelling correctly is essential so that those you can not speak english as well as its natural speakers can understand a little more.  It's just a shame that the majority of the natural english speakers have no care for their language.

2005-04-23 [undeadmary]: this probably sounds really stupid but, how do you add your name if it says 'add your name to the list'?

2005-04-24 [Ocean Dreaming]: You just press the 'Edit this page' button and write your name at the end of the list. ^-^ Then press 'Submit changes to this page' and voila.
