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.
