New to wiki?[edit source]
For those of you who are new to wikis, wikis are websites that enable collaboration and community. Each article page on a wiki is an invitation to contribute and evolve a shared perspective on the ideas on the page. Comments and suggestions about the contents go onto a talk page associated with the article. The history page associated with the article gives you a history of the changes made to the article right from the time it was created.
This provides you with a fantastic opportunity to:
- seed ideas on government
- evolve ideas someone may have contributed
- make suggestions on the ideas
- connect different ideas and practices together
- connect with people and form groups or communities
