The Burning Wiki Logo
  • We have a new Burning Wiki logo, up in the top left of this Front Page. It's a combination of James Wickhams pictograms for 'Communal Effort' and 'Participation'. James - who holds a Creative Commons right in respect of the images - actually did the artwork for us. Our feeling is that this Logo not only reflects the combination of the two Principles most aligned with this Wiki, but is also symbolic of the energy we hope it creates.

  • There's no point knowing WHEN an event is if you missed out on the chance to sign up to gain entry to it. So we've started including 'Invitation Status' information on our Burns & Burners Worldwide page. It is now a sortable column. Try it and see if it works for you.

  • We've filled out the 'ABOUT THIS WIKI' page and now you can read about what we're hoping to achieve and how we're going about it. Watch out Jimmy Wales? Not exactly... but we're kind of confident that we've got a good thing here and we can build upon it. See you on the inside of this, our virtual playa.

Contribute to the Burning Wiki

Burning Wiki is 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. One of the quickest ways to getting started creating or editing your own pages is to look at what others have done. To see the code behind each page, select 'Edit Source' once you open a page that you'd like to copy. See Help:Getting started for further information, a quick introduction to wikis, and links to resources to help you.

Step One: Create a Burner Account

Having a registered Burner Account in the Burning Wiki is a good first step. You can create a Playa Name and use that, and even a Burner Profile page for yourself. You can edit this Wiki without a Burner Account, but be warned, the Wiki will then display your computer's IP address as the 'author'. This isn't a good thing for people who like to keep their computer details private. Creating a Burner Account (at the moment) requires that you contact John Mack at Setup will usually happen within 24 hours.
