===Willipedia News===
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.
This wiki is getting too much spam, which no one likes cleaning up. For now, we're requiring log-ins to edit any pages. You can use your OIT account or your [[How to get a WSO account|WSO account]] to log in.
'''Writers:''' Willipedia now has a few pages that may help you start or edit articles. You can now learn basic stuff [[Project:About|about Willipedia]] and browse its current [[Project:Policies|standards and policies]]. Still have a question? Add it to our [[Project:FAQ|FAQ]].
If you don't like this policy, or even if you do, you're invited to apply to be on the soon-to-be-established Wiki board. The Wiki board will set policies for the Wiki, organize and edit articles, grant administrative privileges, and generally decide the direction of WSO/Wiki. This position requires no technical skill beyond being able to use a web site, and it shouldn't take up too much time. If you are interested in becoming a Wiki Big Shot, email <email>wiki@wso.williams.edu</email> with a few sentences expressing your interest before Thanksgiving. In the email, you might mention any contributions you've made to the Wiki and any experience you have as an editor (broadly defined). Students and alumni are welcome to apply. If you have any questions about this position or its powers, just email <email>wiki@wso.williams.edu</email>.  --[[User:Emiller|Emiller]]
