Getting Started with the Watershed Central Wiki

From Watershed Central Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Are you new to the Watershed Central Wiki? We have a training module in Adobe Flash that takes just a few minutes to run and teaches you how to add a page - correctly nested within a category (which makes for easier search and discovery), how to add a map into your article, and also how to add a tag to your article.

Are you brand new to the wiki? If you'd like to join the community and be able to edit or add content to the wiki please go to our registration page to register.

(Please be patient as it takes a few minutes initially to load the files. Your speakers cannot be on mute to hear the voiceover. The last page of the training is a blank page - be sure to close out the training window only when you are done and not the wiki window!). If video is not working, try installing Adobe Flash Player on your computer. ALSO: Please note that the training initially refers to a Special pages link - this can be found in the left-hand navigation bar toolbox area down below.)

Listed below are a few additional pages that will give you a good overview of what this site is about and how to contribute.

  • How Do I...? - Additional written tutorials on a growing list of subjects
  • WatershedCentral:About - Why the Watershed Central Wiki?
  • User Guidelines - A couple of "rules of thumb" for community members
  • Watershed Central Wiki:Wishlist - leave suggestions for improvements that you would like to see to Watershed Central
  • Discussion Board - Use this page for posting questions to the entire WC community - such as where do I find certain data, experiences applying for certain funding, etc.

If you have questions about a specific tool, click on the 'discussion tab' for the tool. This allows you to review other people's Q&A, and post new questions. Or, click on the 'history' tab to identify the original author of the page, and leave your question on that person's wiki user page. (Tip - you can select email notification in your wiki user preferences so that if you have clicked the "watch" tab you will receive an email if any edits have been made to the watched article.  This should work for "user pages" as well.)
