Updating and fixing wiki pages

The wiki needs love to be meaningful to people.

Access

If you want a unique wiki account ping @officers on slack or in the #amt-wiki channel and we will set it up for you. It takes between 1 and 24 hours to set up after request.

If you want to use the AMT shared credentials you can find them on the handshake page of the website (website login with active membership required).

Updating Asset Posts

  • Correct the messy formatting that may have come in with the MediaWiki data import
  • Add the shortcode so the information is pulled from the AMT Grand Central database when published
  • Add the common name after the asset number in the title (example: https://wiki.acemonstertoys.org/amt268/)
  • Check and make sure the categories are right
  • Add relevant tags
  • Add photos if you can take them
  • Update the documentation links to include manual

Updating Articles

  • Choose an article you would like to update and correct the information to be more current including pictures and so on.
  • Correct the messy formatting that may have come in with the MediaWiki data import

These easy and quick things help:

  • Mark a page as out of date by using the Category Tags or changing the name of the page.
  • Add category tags to make the page easier to find (relevant category tags are things like the room the tool lives it or if it has a steward or the items asset number)
  • Tag the page as “Needs Review”
  • Tag old notes pages as “Archive” and “Notes”
  • Add a picture of a thing to the page
  • Add a better picture of a thing to the page
