We're trying to categorize the major articles to make Willipedia easier to browse. To add an article to a category, just add '''<nowiki>[[</nowiki>Category: ''category-name'']]''' to the top of the article, and it will show up in the appropriate index.

WSO/wiki is hosted by [[Williams Students Online]] and is not officially related to the college. It uses [http://wikipedia.sourceforge.net/ 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]].
