Wiki 1101 Class - Open to all.

Wiki Classes


It's come to my attention that most of our players and storytellers are woefully uneducated when it comes to the wiki. I remember when Tarot first installed it and the rest of us Founders had a painful learning curve on how to use it. I took careful note of all his tricks for walking us through it (after all he couldn't put everything in himself and he needed us up to speed on all things wiki) and the tools and techniques he used.

I will be using these same methods.

So, I'm willing to hold a Wiki 101 class or series of classes. I'll do the first one Monday Night (since I'm off work!) starting at 5pm PST. You'll learn how to navigate the wiki, how to start a new wiki page, and depending on how quick you are learning we'll do for PCs a Personal PC Page (everyone has enough info for that) and if you pick things up quick, I'll have a stable of NPCs or Locations from your area that you will be able to add into the wiki so we can probably whip out an NPC page and perhaps a Location or Monster page too that you are interested in.

If you are a storyteller and coming to the class, please bring an NPC already written up (no formatting needed) and an image and a few locations or creatures unique to your city that you might want to add to the wiki. If you're a PC, please come prepared with your PC's image and a few links (which you can get from your CS hopefully).

This class is open to anyone, but storytellers are encouraged first and foremost. I will be holding other classes, but this one is probably going to be the only one that will happen on a weekday night. The rest will have to be on weekends.

Please let me know if you are interested. We'll enable wiki accounts for you if you do not already have one at this time as well.

First Class: Monday, Dec 26th, 5pm PST. Please sign up below or comment.

I will most likely be able to make that class. Thanks for the offer, Jen. :)

I will definitely try to be here. At first I saw the time and I was like "No!" but then I realized it was PST and I was like "Yes!". Work is over at 8pm EST, so I might be a few minutes late, but I'll do my best.

If I am able I will be there. I know a bit about the wiki but I am just a novice. Certainly no expert or master... Maybe 20 points in the Wiki Editing skill
Forecast for tonight... Dark

My online schedule will be uncertain while I am in Hawai'i, but if I can make it, I will. Otherwise maybe there will be a log?

I would love to attend this. And since I am hoping to be a storyteller, it would be especially good for me to do it.

Though I need to have my account for wiki activated, I already created it under this character name. Not sure how to go about getting it activated... Otherwise I cannot wait to do this, and learn about the process!
Clydes Stuff

I am actually in RL a super intelligent hamster from Rhode Island, with a 7 year plan to take over the world.

Update 6/2/18- 1:10AM EST: His 7 year plan a success, and several weeks ahead of schedule, Clyde leaves to oversee the world he has taken over.

No new threads after end of Spring 518-Will still be checking for PM's occasionally, but focusing on a new character.

Graders note: :
Please be aware Clyde is a master Magecrafter. He therefore should not be gaining full xp(or possibly shouldn't gain any at all) for simple tasks related to this magic, such as low level MC items, particularly for repetitions of creations he has done before. Feel free to contact me if unsure of a instance of his magic use compared to his skill level.
