IMPORTANT NOTE ON OKNER
Please create all Okner content on the pages that can be accessed the top menu bar. Please use the honor system and only do the bulk of the content on ONE page each to let your fellow students have a chance to contribute.
Please see the new assignment page here.
- Website - one word (i.e. not web site)
- Title caps - in bolded headlines (i.e. 'Where To Find a Job') capitalize 'big' words
- Bulleted lists - use bulleted list button, not '-' and return
- Spelling - Check it! Seven misspellings on page I worked on earlier.
- No capitalized words in the middle of a sentence unless it is a title.
- Try to use third person, not second person (i.e. "the project requires" instead of "our project")
- Each team will be assigned a topic and a class day. The team is responsible for creating the topic page and entry for that day in the week by week section. Teams have 24 hours to create the page. In that time, NO OTHER TEAM may create that page. If the designated team does not create the page within 24 hours, any team may create it.
- No pages may be created during class time.
- Entries need to be proofed. Spelling and grammar errors are discouraged. Please write your entry in Word first if necessary.
- All edits need a concise description of what was done (use the "Short description of changes:" box)
- If you are making a minor edit (less than a sentence, i.e. fixed comma, number, etc), put "minor" in the description field of changes.
- Also follow style guidelines on front page
- Remember: Karma (green bars) is only a rough estimate of activity, you will also be graded on individual activity
Quick notes on the wiki:
Top of the page has two menus, "Topics" and "Classes." Hover over the menus and select them to go to those pages.
In the lefthand navigation, you will find a link that is called "recent changes." You can use this to keep track of what pages people are working on.
If you need to create a new page for a topic that is not listed, simply enter the name (capitalize it and spell it correctly) in the box on the left under "Add a new page." To add it to the navigation at the top, you can go to "List all pages," find the "Menu" page and edit it. You will see the other buttons listed in there and just pattern the new link accordingly.
Also, I added group pages. I don't know if we need them, but I figured they are there if you want to use them.
