The wikithon needs around fifty writers and more than a handful of editors, with a bunch of other supplementary roles to fill before we launch on May 23rd. If one of these roles is calling to you, click on the link and see what each is about. There's information on each page regarding the task, the timeline, and how to sign up. Once that's done, we've created a Facebook group for all of us participating.
We'll use the Facebook group for general communications among members. This could include conversation about the wiki platform itself, the roles of writers and editors, specific questions or discussions about the guidelines, or for posting wikithon selfies. #whereIwrite #goingteal
Discussions specific to topics, including both what goes into an article, as well as general topical discussion, is held in that topic's "Talk" page. What is a Talk page? It's a little like a discussion forum, except that like all wiki pages, the entire page is editable by anyone. It can be a little strange at first if you aren't used to it.
