Help:Talk pages

From SufiWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Every page has a talk page which can be used for discussion and communicating with other users. Talk pages can be accessed by clicking the Discussion tab at the top of the page. A talk page is actually very similar to any other wiki page so simply edit the page as normal to add your comment.

Rules for changing talk pages

Having discussions on a free-form wiki page will seem strange at first. It helps if everyone follows some simple rules:

  • Always sign your name after your comments.
  • Start a new discussion with a ==level 2 heading== at the bottom of the page (or use the '+' tab)
  • Indent replies with colons (':') at the beginning of the line.

Example

Here is an example discussion, following the talk page rules:

== More spiders information needed ==
This page has a lot of detail about the web, but I really dont understand a single word of it, and it doesn't mention the spider once -- [[User:Bob Smith|Bob Smith]] 18:07, 26 August 1991 (UTC)
: No no. This page is talking about the "world wide web". I have added a clarification at the top - [[User:Simon Brown|Simon Brown]] 11:21, 28 August 1991(UTC)
:: Oh I see... So what's the big deal about hyperlinked documents? Seems like a stupid idea to me. -- [[User:Bob Smith|Bob Smith]] 14:11, 3 September 1991 (UTC)
::: Well I think we should have some information about it here on our wiki, but you're probably right. It'll never catch on. -- [[User:Simon Brown|Simon Brown]] 21:55, 3 September 1991 (UTC)

Editing discussions

Having discussions on a wiki page will seem strange at first and it can get a little messy. However, as with other wiki pages, anyone can help with tidying up discussions.

Clearly we also have the opportunity to edit other people's comments. It is generally bad etiquette to modify somebody else's wording.

A talk page is actually very similar to any other wiki page, but it is separate from the main articles. As with any wiki page, you can edit it, link to it, and view the editing history.
