Welcome to the lounge.

Welcome to the Contributor's Lounge. This page should get you started with everything you need to know about contributing to the Computing at Evergreen wiki.

What is this wiki all about, anyway?

This wiki is an Evergreen community knowledge base for computing and technology related information. The primary intent is to provide a reference for community members who have questions about using technology at Evergreen.

Content criteria and writing guidelines

  • Be nice.
  • Keep it about technology at Evergreen.
  • No profanity.
  • Limit image sizes.
  • Respect moderator decisions.
  • If you would like to propose significant changes, please use the "Discussion" tab to make your proposal before altering significants portions of the site.

Cite your sources

Much of the content in this wiki exists on other official Evergreen web pages. Please provide links to the original sources of content when at all possible.

Keep it simple

This wiki is about communicating information. The more simply and straightforwardly the information is presented, the more readily it will be understood by a broad audience.

Format text for scan-ability

Often a numbered or bulleted list is easier to absorb than a dense paragraph.

Categorize it!

To make it easy for people to find you article, make sure to add it to the appropriate category(s). For a complete listing of existing categories see Special:Categories. If your article does not fit in any of the existing categories feel free to create the appropriate category. If this needs to be linked off of the home page you can contact Amy Greene.

Add it to the Site Map

The site map is manually maintained. When a new category or page is created please update the site map.
