As if this project isn't nerdy enough!

Its barely hatched, but you can see that from here on, we're going to have a strong provision for documentation.

Here's some details:

Symbiostock.org is being overhauled for the wiki:
http://www.symbiostock.org/Main_Page

Don't knock it --  Wiki's are supposed to be ugly. Like real geek culture, the worse you look, the smarter its assumed you are. I was shocked to see it uses tables for layout! I can't believe this is an internet standard for archiving knowledge. Its already ancient. But anyway, it does its job great.

With that said, if someone wants to make a nice redeeming set of graphics to "splash" it out in the usual designerly way, that would be awesome.

All Symbiostockers can contribute:
http://www.symbiostock.org/Contribute/

Code documentation for future developers has started (Done this week hopefully):
http://www.symbiostock.org/developer_documentation/packages/symbiostock.html

You log in with your Symbiostock forum credentials (a good shield for automated wiki-spammers too)!
http://www.symbiostock.org/community/



Your personal Symbio-site wiki:

For fun and practice, the invitation is out for Symbiostockers to write a wiki on about their personal sites --

For instance, my site would be:
http://www.symbiostock.org/Sites/clipartillustration.com

Yours would be
http://www.symbiostock.org/Sites/yourSymbioSite.com

As you can see, there's nothing there. If you are logged in, you will have the ability to create content for that path, and a page will be generated there. Let it be your personal Symbiostock site wiki :D For organization sake, keep the /sites/ path in the URL.



Populating the knowledge base

There is TONS of symbio-reference here on MSG that can be adapted to the wiki. Having spoken to Leaf, you are able to retrieve / adapt things from this forum to the wiki only with permission of it's original author/poster. (thus centralizing Symbiostock's knowledge base).

Looks good but now all the forum links are broken in google.  Like this one for example
http://www.symbiostock.org/Topic/329/images-not-showing-on-fresh-install-help/

perhaps you can set up a magical htaccess file to forward everything to the correct thread... the linked one for example is now here

I tried to login with my forum credentials and it wouldn't let me in.

EDIT: Tried it again about a half hour later on a different computer and it worked this time.

So I made a first pass at a page for my Symbiostock site. Not sure if that's what you had in mind Leo, but take a look:

Great start! I've just added the site directory - http://www.symbiostock.org/Sites/

It will be a little more "category" separated in time, but for now its just  a simple list / placeholder.

Great job!

You need to put in your sitename in the following URL
Code: [Select]
http://www.symbiostock.org/Sites/my_site_name.com and go to that page. Log in (using your forum login for Symbiostock.org) and click the edit tab. Add something and Save and you're good to go
