Welcome to the permapedia wiki discussion thread. The Permapedia is at https://www.permapedia.com/ and the intention is for it to become a Permaculture encyclopedia written collaboratively by many of its readers. It uses a special type of website, called a wiki, that makes collaboration easy and allows inappropriate changes to be removed quickly. Don't be afraid to edit—anyone can edit almost any page, and we encourage you to be bold! Find something that can be improved, either in content, grammar or formatting, and fix it. You can't break Permapedia. Anything can be fixed or improved later. So go ahead, edit an article and help it make the best information source on the Internet for Permaculture. How to edit a page Editing a Permapedia page is not very hard. 1. Simply click on the "edit this page" tab at the top of any Permapedia page (or on a section-edit link). This will bring you to a new page with a text box containing the editable text of the original page. 2. You should write a short edit summary in the small field below the edit-box. You may use shorthand to describe your changes, as described in the legend, and when you have finished, press the Show preview button to see how your changes will look. You can also see the difference between the page with your edits and the previous version of the page by pressing the "Show changes" button. 3. If you're satisfied with what you see, be bold and press the Save page button. Your changes will immediately be visible to other Permapedia readers. For more info, check out my Quick guide to editing topic on Permapedia. Adding a new topic Sometimes you'll be on a page in Permapedia and think that it could use a new topic on it. That's easy to do. 1. Edit the current page, and insert your new topic link like this: [[Effects of adding ducks into rice]] 2. Save your changes, describing what you did in the "short edit summary" field below the edit box. 3. When you review the saved page, you'll see a new link on it called "Effects of adding ducks into rice" (or whatever you typed). Click on the link and you'll be taken to the Edit window for your new page. 4. Add the new page's content and hit Save. You're done!
