Using This Wiki
An open wiki is a great way to impart knowledge, and collaborate on research projects in any given field of interest. When a group of people come together and share and discuss ideas about a subject, there is no end to the depth or layers of knowledge that can develop. The process of editing, sharing, and imparting knowledge for others to use and create upon is how subjects are expanded and accuracy is gained. This is called, Wiki.
What is a Wiki?
A wiki (wɪki/ WIK-ee) is a website which allows collaborative modification of its content and structure directly from the web browser. In a typical wiki, text is written using a simplified markup language (known as “wiki markup”), and often edited with the help of a rich-text editor. A wiki Web site operates on a principle of collaborative trust. The simplest wiki programs allow users to create and edit content. The most popular wiki is Wikipedia.
Why a Wiki?
The Patriot Woodworker woodworking community is a vibrant forum, packed with great information from our members. The experience and skill set of our contributors is vast and wide, from the new woodworker to the professional woodworker, there is something for everybody at The Patriot Woodworker. Now we need to expand our knowledge base to catalog, share, and encourage others to become involved in woodworking.
Tikiwiki is a widely used resource for open source projects and education purposes. Come read about how we chose Tiki Wiki as our open sourced research project for everything about woodworking. After extensive research and trials, and mistakes, we finally decided on wiki software that would both benefit our woodworking data base of subjects, and would also be user friendly for editors and collaborators. Read on to see how we decided.
