Wiki Help


All wiki help in one place! These links can be found in many other places too, but here they are all in one place!

The Elfpack Wiki is a strange little thing that many are confused about at first. Thus there are several different help pages for it... If you don't understand from reading the first one, proceed to the next and see if that explains it better. Remember: it isn't as complicated as it may seem!


Short Introduction

A wiki is a set of web-pages that anyone can edit. This isn't something made up specifically for Elfpack. There are several wikis on the web.

The word "wiki" is Hawaiian and means "fast" or "quick". Why wikis are called that is probably better explained by the creators of the concept. Try searching the web for "what is a wiki" with your favourite search engine, if you're interested in reading more.


The Help Pages

Wiki guide
A user-friendly guide which covers the basics about using wikis.

2005-06-01 [Far from grace]: how do u change somthing on your house? i dont kno how to and i need to

2005-06-01 [Zab]: you change the things by clickin on ''change personal data'' on the very top of your house, in the right corner. There you see the form you filled in when you became an elfpacker, change things in that. ^_^

2005-06-07 [death how i long to embrace you]: all right my friend has made a wiki i was just wondering how to get it known?

2005-06-07 [Zab]: advertise on wikis that allows that and put a link in your mood...

2005-06-07 [death how i long to embrace you]: thanks

2005-07-18 [xisabellax]: hey i made a wiki to put all my pictures in and it's telling me to the page is getting to big and i need to seperate it. how do i do this?

2005-07-18 [Zab]: You makes a new wiki and puts a link to it up on your old one. ^_^ But you can make it a little bigger, I think, those messages comes very soon. ^_-

2005-07-19 [death how i long to embrace you]: yes they do come very soon

2005-07-27 [Uve_got_problems]: <img:>

2005-08-12 [..Gone..]: There's no way at all to delete a wiki page? Is there a guard or someone who can?

2005-08-12 [Zab]: Guards can delete all 'previous versions' on a wiki, yes. (at least in Elftown). The owner, or anyone who are able to edit the page, can delete what it shows, but not previous versions.

2006-08-03 [FireGypsy]: what do you mean?

2006-08-05 [kittykittykitty]: Meaning anyone can press the button to view older edits of the page, but guard captains can delete the old versions completely rather than just covering them up

2006-08-05 [FireGypsy]: I didnt write that? wtf? I must have written something in the wrong page (i usually have like 4 tabs up of the same site) lol. I know all about that stuff!

2006-08-05 [FireGypsy]: *is weirded out*

2006-08-05 [kittykittykitty]: Hahaha :P Like earlier when you didn't know how I was reading your mails? XD

2006-08-05 [FireGypsy]: how did you read my goddamn mail!!!

2006-08-06 [kittykittykitty]: Awww I have my tricks. It's really quite simple, but if I told you I would have to stop reading them XD

2006-08-06 [FireGypsy]: tell me!

2006-08-06 [kittykittykitty]: No :P But you are free to take any measures you feel are necessary in your quest to stop me >:D
