A wiki is a set of wiki-pages. The single wiki-pages can be edited quickly but people looking at them (sometimes only a few people can edit them).

Often people on Elftown use the term "wiki" to mean a "wiki-page" and "wikis" to mean "wiki-pages". But to use the words correctly, there is only one wiki on Elftown that contains many wiki-pages.

2007-12-23 [xido]: This page really should technically state what a wiki is and does, and what separates it from any other web page. I think I get it as it is, but it doesn't really seem to relate.

Since it's better to link to an ET wikipages than a Wikipedia page, I was just thinking that this page would be more like that... perhaps. :/

2011-07-06 [Hedda]: Hm... Is this wiki-page used somewhere?

I thought it would be good to explain the difference between a "wiki" and a "wiki-page" here. There is some confusion as people tend to use "wiki" instead of "wiki-page" because they are either lazy or confused.

2011-07-06 [SilverFire]: Lazy. :P But no, I don't think it's linked to anywhere. The info is all out of date and explained better on more logically named pages, so this is pretty obsolete right now.

2011-07-06 [Hedda]: OK, now I've explained the terms.
