WSO/wiki is hosted by [[Williams Students Online]] and is not officially related to the college. It uses [ MediaWiki], the same software that powers the free and famous [[Wikipedia:Main page|Wikipedia]]. A Wiki is a site with many informative articles that anyone can edit. Feel free to contribute! We want this site to become a definitive source of information about Williams. Articles, biographies, stories, and how-to's are welcome, and on nearly any subject: buildings, people, organizations, classes, computing, hiking, anything of, about, or near the college. To edit an article, click "Edit this page" at the bottom of the article. To create a new article, there first needs to be a link to it; you can edit an existing, related article to create that link. You will probably want to consult [[Wikipedia:How_to_edit_a_page|Wikipedia's editing guide]] to learn the proper syntax.  Feel free to experiment in the [[Sandbox]].
