Merging newbie help and programming help
Not WIKI! Please! Unless it's some sort of limited WIKI, because I'm afraid that a lot of people of this community are too immature to handle a WIKI without posting spam, junk or pseudo 1337 h4x0r1ng. Maybe I sounded harsh, but I think that's true.


*breathes deep*

A Wiki is a collaboratively-edited website which many people also view as an anarchistic publishing tool. The distinguishing feature of wikis is that they typically allow all users to edit any page, with full freedom to edit/change/delete the work of previous authors. Other typical wiki features include:
  • A simple set of TextFormattingRules which allow access to a subset of HTML.
  • Easy creation of links to wiki pages, either by joining capitalized words or surrounding them with special characters (like [[Free Links]] which becomes http://Free Links).
  • Easy creation of new wiki pages. On many wikis a link to an undefined page is displayed with a question mark (like SampleUndefinedPage?).
  • A RecentChanges page, which lists pages that have been edited recently.
The oldest public wiki (the [Portland Pattern Repository]) was created in 1995, and remains active as of early 2003. Bo Leuf and Ward Cunningham wrote a book that tries to explain it all: The Wiki Way, ISBN 0-201-71499-X.

*end of blah-blah*

But, did you know, oracle? (Ironic, eh? An oracle that doesn't know) If you learn how to use Google, your life will be easier:
