This is a wiki — a web site designed to be easy to contribute to.
YOU CAN EDIT ANY PAGE ON THIS WIKI.
Try it out now. Choose this link: sand box, and then choose "Edit This Page". The sand box is a place where no-one will mind if you make a mess.
If you don't know the password, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
While you're editing, you can write a phrase that links to another wiki page by writing the page's name in double brackets (either round brackets or square brackets), like this:
To add a bit of posh to what you write here, look at formatting.
Making a new page
To make a new page, you have to do ... nothing. You can use the new page simply by referring to it as if it already existed, either by making a link to it on some other page on this wiki, or by putting its URL into a web browser. For example, suppose you want to make a page called "my new page". You can add
((my new page)) to any page in this wiki, and that will make an active link to your new page, like this: my new page. Or you can ask your web browser to go to http://xeny.net/MyNewPage (which is the same page as http://xeny.net/my_new_page).
The only restrictions on page names are that they can't start with dots (periods), and they can't containt forward slashes (/).
Please sign what you write, preferably by typing your name as a link like this: Willow Rosenberg. That will let people know who's said what, and as a nice side-effect it will automatically give you a link to a your wiki home page.

Eventually, I'll make a way for you to ask to subscribe to changes to pages. There will probably be options for subscribing by email or RSS or both. Please let me know if you've got a preference.
In most web browsers, you can use special keys — usually Alt, ctrl or ctrl-option — along with the initial letter of one of this wiki's buttons to activate that button.
