Where am I?
This is the Burning Wiki in it's early form.
|What this is||What this might be||What this is not|
|It's a Wiki similar to, but separate from Wikipedia. Like all Wikis it's a place where all visitors are encouraged to add knowledge, and like all burn communities it's a do-ocracy.
Anything you want, if you make it so.
A place for opinionated rants (we already have eplaya and facebook groups)
Status of the Burning Wiki
This wiki was launched on the 15th of March 2017, it is in 'stage 0'. It has not been promoted or shared widely in any burn communities yet as it should have a little more content and structure first, it needs to create a good first impression.
The Burning Wiki started in New Zealand, so it is currently very Australasia-centric. It doesn't have to be.
A getting started guide is still being worked on, the red links below (page doesn't exist) are page holders.
- Burning Wiki:About - Info about the wiki and the technology it's built with
- Help:Getting started - Quick intro to wikis and links to resources to get people started (internal and external)
Events that currently have pages
- List of regional burns
- Kiwiburn 2016
- Kiwiburn 2017
- Kiwiburn Effigy 2016
- Long term plans - Basically a todo list for the site
I am testing whether storing administrative documents here is a good idea by adding some of Blazing Swan's documents and asking those who make and those who use these docs to comment.
- Standardised formatting - docs are easier to make and read (some may feel this limits creativity, but I think they'll be okay)
- Centralised location - with all/most docs in one place they'll be easier to find and link together
- Version control - wikis have excellent version history and tracking
- Collaboration - wikis are designed as a collaboration tool, passing documents as volunteer roles change is trivial
- Accessibility - wikis are easier to use (that pdfs) on desktops, mobile, and with screen readers
