Editing this Wiki

Students are encouraged to update this wiki regularly, by editing and uploading relevant information. Before doing that you are advised to read the User's Guide about wiki editing.

To have a track of who is editing what ? all students should create a new account before accessing this wiki. You can do so by clicking on the create an account or log in link at the top-right of every page. When you make edits, please use the "preview" feature to make sure your changes are final, and then don't forget to save. Use the "edit summary" to describe what you did and why. One should ensure that their additions reflect a positive collaboration in the interest of the course.

Writing for Wikipedia articles is a bit different from writing on a standard word processor. Instead of a strict "what you see is what you get" approach, wiki uses simple text codes for formatting. The approach is similar to that used in writing HTML for web pages, but the codes are simpler. The MediaWiki help is a great place to start learning about all the features available.

For the new users, please read the editing guidelines of Wikipedia for the guidelines regarding the Style and the Contents, Heading and subheadings and topics on how to handle the links and images to our wiki.
