Please abide Occupy Boston's Wiki Guidelines:

The most important aspect of a wiki is clarity. Every page on the wiki should clearly represent a specific idea. You can clarify the intent of a page (and thereby direct its future use) by adding a precise description of its function, which will strongly promote the healthy growth of the wiki.

Please see also: Formatting Tips

  • Etiquette should require no more mention than this.
  • Before you begin editing, please quickly browse the navigation bar on the left to get a feel for the structure of our wiki.
  • Internal links are like red blood cells and nerve endings.
    • The wiki may not be as intuitively navigable as intended, so information should be linked on any and all relevant pages.
    • Consider the many paths by which collaborators and visitors may explore the wiki, and try to create a network with many 'nerve endings.'
  • Regarding Discussion:
    • Every page has its own Discussion! Make sure to post on the relevant page.
    • The Discussion is meant to house conversationbetween members.
      • Please add comments to existing discussions - that's why they're there!
      • Conversation is greatly aided by query; Where there is a question, there shall become an answer.
  • Making a LARGE contribution?
    • Are you posting a document that is hosted only on your personal computer?
      • Please do not create a new page or a new Discussion topic to 'host' a text.
      • Please click on 'Manage Wiki' in the top of the navigation bar, then under Content click on 'Files.' Here you can upload documents from your computer, and then revert to the next step:
    • Are you posting text, video, or audio that is already hosted online?
      • Please post a link and a short description on the appropriate existing page (often in the Press section).
  • Please note the large number of pages that already exist!
    • Determine whether your contribution is best hosted on an existing page.
    • You can create a new page by clicking 'New Page' at the top of the navigation bar.
  • Tags = Categories:
    • Tags on pages in the wiki denote categories used in the aid of site structure and navigation. Check out the list of existing tags.
    • Tags on pages in the wiki are often redundant. All text in the wiki, including page titles, is automatically searchable.
    • If you would like a page to appear in a search by a keyword that is not already on the page (possibly due to vagueness of said keyword), create or add to an existing list of "[keywords: in brackets]" a few lines down from the last text on the page (demonstrated on this page).
  • Adding Notes
    • Notes about format and language often belong right on the page.
    • Notes should be in brackets and announced. [Note: This is an example of a note.]

Thank you for reading!

Page Notes


[Hello Boston et al;
[To serve the Occupy Boston community (and beyond), we must maximize efficiency. The fact that we are massive and leaderless often makes this task very difficult. But we have the ability to create an intuitive structure, which will strengthen both wiki and movement. I invite everyone to participate in building and maintaining this structure. I remind everyone to employ creativity in the event of criticism.
[On the left of every OccupyBoston Wiki page is the navigation bar. At the top of this bar are functions designed by the WikiSpaces Host. Then there is a search box (every bit of text within the wiki is searchable!) followed finally by the structure designed ipso facto by the growth of Occupy Boston. In a way, this represents the 'DNA' of the Occupation. Please explore every aspect of this structure! Determine what is good and what is bad, and make suggestions! We are only as strong as the plurality of our voices.
[The core structure of this wiki is still being designed, so it is up to us to make it navigable. If anything is vague or you would like to implement larger changes, please notify OneKarma and collaborate! OneKarma is not any authority, but he has spent quite a large effort to organize the core.]
