Wiki.Bitcoin.com (1.2 BTC in prizes available!)

Sun Sep 27, 2015 3:56 am

---------------OCT 9th 2015 UPDATE-------------------
The beta wiki is up for people to start editing: wikibeta.bitcoin.com

I'll be giving out some prizes to those who help make the most improvements to the wiki too!
1st place: 0.8 BTC to the person who helps update the most content.
2nd place: 0.4 BTC to the person who helps update the second most content.

Full details in this post.
-----------------End Update------------------------



Would the community be interested in there being a wiki.bitcoin.com in addition to the other wikis that already exist?

If so, does anyone in the community have the technical knowledge and desire to set this up?

I'm more than happy to pay for any hosting or other fees that would be required.

What do people think?

you can do it roger! pick some head mods and pay someone to copypasta stuff over and i guess what, have forum accounts able to update it? have its own user account system? and vote on stuff or just mods blam or post and we see edit history? how much will the community be involved in this? (i think lots, but there does need to be agreement on "technical" knowledge of bitcoin)

It looks like they have made it pretty easy.
Is there already a board member that has a little experience with this already though?

I suppose we will start on setting this up in the coming week.

I think a wiki would be a great idea. I can think of so many things that would benefit from a wiki. I have been thinking a lot about how bitcoin and opensource could compete to build the literal and metaphoric roads to freedom. As I see it, a wiki might be the best platform to develop from.

I would throw my hand up to volunteer in pretty much any aspect. I am looking at focusing this direction through the winter, as my work season is "chilling out".

I thank you for giving us this outlet.

Great!
The Wiki is almost ready, but we could use some more help polishing it up before we make it public on Bitcoin.com.

I sent you a PM with the details.
If anyone else wants to help out, let us know!

Here is a screen shot of what we have so far:

I have to admit that I am a little unsure of how to get things rolling here, lol. It seems that some more brains should come over and work on this. I feel like I could prove to be useful in the long haul, but I would love some hand holding. Besides, obviously this is a community project.

Would it make sense to have a wiki forum sub?

Tomorrow I will try to have it opened up to members of this Forum with a password.
Once we think it is ready for the public, we will remove the password and add it to the template for the rest of the Bitcoin.com website so everyone can find it easily.


Sound like a good plan?

Try it out on your own members to get some trusted feedback before offical release, good thinking.

If people want to get started updating things, the wiki is online at https://wikibeta.bitcoin.com

The wiki user database hasn't been merged with the forum user data base, so you will need to create a new account to edit the Wiki.
Please use the same name as your Forum ID.

In a few more days, a new skin will be added, and once we have the content up to date, we will move it to wiki.bitcoin.com add it to the main menu bar for the site.

I'll be giving out some prizes to those who help make the most improvements to the wiki too!
1st place: 0.8 BTC to the person who helps update the most content.
2nd place: 0.4 BTC to the person who helps update the second most content.

To qualify, the updates must be unique, quality and accurate.

More suggestions are appreciated!

Can you mirror the data from the current wiki or does it have to be entered manually?

I'm going to be mirroring pages from the current wiki, if this isn't ok, please let me know.

I think we should be trying to stay as unique as possible. There is only so much uniqueness possible, though. It's a tough one :)

It has already been mirrored from the existing Wiki, so it is ready for people to start updating from there.

A great first page to work on would be an "Upcoming Events" page.
We can list all the upcoming conferences and link directly to it from the menu bar of the main site.

Well a lot of the pages aren't mirrored. Sure the main page is, but not everything is mirrored.

I just added a bunch of events to https://wiki.bitcoin.com/w/Conferences

I would love to have someone add any that I am missing, and maybe make the table look a bit prettier.

I just added the Wiki to the main menu of the Bitcoin.com front page.

There isn't much competition yet, so it should be easy for someone to win the .8 BTC first place prize.

When I try to upload images, I always get this error: [6ae34780] 2015-10-30 00:19:33: Fatal exception of type "MWException"

Edit: Also, when does the competition end?

I'll check on this error right away.

I think the contest will end at the end of this year.

Thanks for all the contributions!

if you read the thread before posting you would know.
I have already warned you for this and I don't really want to ban you or your other accounts, if you disregard these warnings that may be the only option I would be left with. :!:

I was managing / editing a couple of wiki pages on the .it site, and had planned to add some new ones for sections I'm knowledgeable, but that weren't there. is there now going to be two wikis? Or will that be retired?

There will likely be two since the other wiki is not run by Roger Ver and is not likely to close anytime soon.
