How the Wiki works

The Wiki is the section where we have compiled useful information on frequently asked questions. The format is different to the rest of the ClinPsy forum, so this section explains how it works.

How the Wiki works

Post by maven » Sat Mar 24, 2007 11:15 pm

The Wiki is a constantly updated set of information on 250+ core topics related to the profession. It is designed to collect together all the useful information on topics that are frequently asked about on the forum. It therefore has a very strict structure to ensure that the content is as thorough and helpful as it can be.

1) Threads can only be started by moderators, as all other conversation should take place in the main forum sections. If you want to add a topic, there is a thread called "suggestions for new topics" in which to do so.

2) If you can see a topic on which you have something to add to the contents, or wish to make an edit, please use the "quote" button to copy the entire top post, which you can then edit as you see fit. Please use bold to highlight the changes you are suggesting and give an explanation for what you have edited below the quote.

3) Anyone can comment on proposed edits, or use quote as above to build on a suggested edit.

4) As often as possible, the mods will replace the top post with the new edited version (provided that the editing is sensible), and will delete everything except the top post.

5) Please note before you post that the content of the Wiki belongs to ClinPsy.org.uk as a community, rather than to individual contributors. It may be quoted, if referenced to ClinPsy.org.uk and otherwise treated acording to the ideal of copyleft.

6) Do not plagiarise. Our content is unique to us. What you post on ClinPsy.org.uk wiki must be in your own words, and not quoted from elsewhere unless you have their permission, and sources must be referenced. If you quote us elsewhere you must cite your source as the clinpsy forum.

We'd encourage you to get involved with making and improving the wiki, as we see it as a key part of this forum, and want it to be jointly owned by the community. Don't be afraid to join in even where the top post is written by someone more experienced than you, as it can help to clarify or broaden topics, or even just improve spelling or punctuation.

We want the wiki to be a living evolving repository of knowledge, not a stale and static reference section!

It is designed to collect together all the useful information on topics that are frequently asked about on the forum (FAQs) in a way that is more accessible than searching the thousands of posts that have accumulated on the forum. It is an ideal place to start reading about clinical psychology in the UK, and might well give you ideas or questions for discussion in the forum.

This is a demonstration of how to make additions or changes to the wiki - In this case, I've added to the top definition to expand the meaning, and corrected a typo.

We appreciate it if anyone has time to check and update wiki entries in this way. It is always good to check that the links still work, and the information is still current.

Although a lot of the posts appear to have been written a long time ago, they are frequently updated and improved, so even a post from 2007 should have been checked and updated many times since then and carry current information. There should be a grey section in the text at the bottom of each wiki entry to indicate when it was last checked or updated.
