Description

Penguicon.info is part of the “back end” of the Penguicon planning process. You might call it the “behind the scenes” stuff, in tandem with a variety of Google docs and a Google Sites page. This is where we coordinate the planning work, keep notes, and ideally keep track of our learning from year to year. To that end, we have information stored in namespaces for past penguicons (viewable from the Index) as well as our current stuff.

Getting Started

Wikis can be a really great way to collaborate and information share. Communication is essential. Here are some tips to get you started:

  • First, the wiki Syntax Guide.
  • Second, test and play: look at the guts of other pages to see what's possible, or test things in the playground. Remember, though, you can always revert bad changes.
  • If you think you need a new page created, please do the following first:
    • Consider editing an existing page first. Having an entire page for a sentence or two is a messy way to collaborate. Remember, this is not an encyclopedia, but a method of working together.
    • Determine what the best name would be for the page.
    • Send an email to James detailing the page you would like created and what will be on it.
  • When making edits, please explain your edit in the Edit summary. While it might seem self explanatory to you, it might not be to the rest of us.
  • Create a section at the bottom of your page called Todo List. Under here, list things that need to be done to the page. This might be the most important thing you can do as it serves two important purposes:
    1. It allows others to know what is in the works so they don't do work that would mess that up.
    2. It gives others a chance to help out. If you need to add a series of links, someone else with time on their hands might come by and do it for you if you give them a chance.
  • Pass on thoughts, comments, questions, or concerns so that we can make this more useful and more effective as a tool.
