    New Zealand motorcycle wiki

    New Zealand motorcycle wiki
    http://www.kiwibiker.co.nz/wiki/

    We have created a new space for Kiwi bikers to place their knowledge of motorcycling in New Zealand. Ever made/seen a post in the forums that was really informative, only to be lost in the deluge of drivel. Now you can place that info in the wiki where it can be easily found and referenced.

    The wiki uses KB logins, so it will log you in automatically. Any member can add or update pages.

    Remember, just like Kiwi Biker, we have created the wiki space.
    It's up to you to provide the content.

    We will also not tolerate anyone defacing pages. All updates are logged with which member made them. They also can be easily backed out.

    Help wanted!

    I have kindly (or stupidly) volunteered to collate content for the wiki and I can't do it alone!

    As you can see, the wiki is currently a skeleton layout, which doesn't have much content. We need to start pumping content into it.

    If you want to help out with entering information, please fire me a PM and I'll help you get started.

    Ahh, what do you need to do to get started? Don't you just start randomly entering content?

    Yes, you can and I see you already have been! It pays to have some form of collaboration so we can be aware of what each other is writing.

    With wikis people just adopt jobs and content they like and go for it.

    You will get formatters, indexers, grammaticists, tech writers, editorials.. and on it goes. Everyone just does what they enjoy, and it works.

    Looking forward to seeing the tech section unroll.

    I am not sure Wiki's need collaboration. The concept is self editing and management.

    Hm. I recall a gentleman named Ambrose Bierce. He was rather good at that sort of thing.

    Wasn't the wiki created a long long time ago? Or was that another site's...
    Motorcycling is like life - it's about the journey, not the destination.

    Yes, I realise that. I want to start putting content into the skeleton myself and don't want to write something that someone else is already in the process of doing!
