As people start wading into the new and improved Glowing Puddle, it seems that there is some confusion about the wiki portion of the site. Thus, I thought I should clear up some of the confusion.
This article should make the Glowing Puddle Wiki less of a mystery!
What is a Wiki?
A wiki is a piece of software that allows users to create, edit, and maintain a body of information. Basically, it's a big database that anyone -- and I do mean anyone -- can add to.
What is the purpose of the Glowing Puddle Wiki?
There is a huge Stargate fandom out in cyberspace. People write fanfiction, create fan art, make music videos, and express their love of the show in a million different ways. The Glowing Puddle wiki is meant to be a giant online yellow pages of anyone who is a stargate fan. Ideally, anyone with an online Stargate fan presence would create an entry in the wiki telling about their work and favorite online hangouts.
Should I do anything at the Glowing Puddle Wiki page?
Yes! Drop in, read the main page, and create a page in the wiki all about YOU! Tell us about where you post your fanfictions, art, vidoes, livejournal entries, blog, etc. Tell us where your favorite Stargate websites are. Editing a page is easy. Remember, the wiki is owned by EVERYONE. It's not an encyclopedia, published by one person and edited only by staff. It's a group project. The wiki will only be complete and interesting if YOU edit pages in it.
With that said, please feel free to email me with questions! Thanks for stopping by!
