What is a Wiki — a wiki is a Web site where people can quickly and easily add or edit its content, typically by clicking an "Edit" link or button. Wikis are intended to facilitate content creation by encouraging collaboration and cooperation. Unlike content management systems that only allow administrators to edit content, pages on a wiki can usually be edited by anyone, often without creating an account.

In principle, you can write whatever you want on this wiki, but the community of this wiki expect you to limit your contributions to the topic of this wiki, avoid offensive language, and respect copyright. We keep our wiki clean and delete SPAM or other unwanted content in a timely fashion.

For more on Wikis, see Wikipedia on Wikis and WhyWikiWorks.
