Your New Wiki Page

Jump to: navigation, search

Thanks for using the UBC Wiki. As part of an effort to better organize the UBC Wiki, we're moving pages to the appropriate section of the wiki. The goal of this process is to make information on the UBC Wiki easier to find as well as to support the different uses of the wiki.

I just wanted to check in with you to make sure that your page is located in the proper section of the wiki. Currently, your new pages are in the Main Space of the wiki. This section is primarily a shared community space and we encourage articles in this section to be encyclopedic in nature, appeal to a broad audience, and be reflective of UBC. Articles in the main space are encouraged to have a precise title and an introductory sentence describing what the page is about as this space is syndicated through the main RSS feed. Most importantly, pages in the main space belong to the entire wiki community and we encourage anyone to edit any page in this section.

The Course space is the section of the wiki where we place all course related content. It supports subpages so all content related to a specific course can be organized hierarchically. The Documentation namespace is for user manuals, documentation, support guides and other similar content. The Sandbox can be thought of as a notebook/workspace and it's a great space for personal projects. Outside editing of articles or pages in the course, documentation, and sandbox spaces are less encouraged than in the main space. Help:Namespaces has more information about how the wiki is organized.

Please feel free to move your page to a different wiki section if you think it would be better off not being located in the main space (for example, if you do not want other people editing it). Please see Help:Moving a page for more information on how to move a page. UBC_Wiki:Community_Policies also has more info about the wiki structure.

Please let me know if I can provide further info or help out with anything. Thanks again!
