This site is a wiki
This quite recent word (in English) describes a website where anyone can edit a page, even add a page, and add pictures and links.
If you find this freedom disconcerting, try the sandbox first!
Some of the pages are protected but many are editable. Some pages have a 'captcha', which means you have to type in a number which is difficult for automatic spammers to read.
Because of vandalism, all contributions and changes are moderated: your text will not appear immediately but will be approved within a day or two by the moderator. You can however use the 'preview' button to see how your contribution will appear.
Pictures must be sent to the editor for inclusion. This is because there is limited storage space on the server.
This is a community enterprise to which everyone can contribute. It means that leaders of the various clubs can update the calendar and describe what the club does and has done in a more spacious way than the monthly paper newsletter allows.
We welcome contributions on local history and local natural history.
Don't be shy of expressing opinions or asking and answering questions.
Such freedom brings responsibility to establish and maintain a friendly and civilised tone. Malice is not excluded, but it should at least be witty.
Pages can be password protected against editing by other people. Contact the webmaster if you want this done.
If you have a local business you can ask the editor to make a page just for yourself, linked to the Local Businesses page. If you wish, this personal page can be password protected by the webmaster so that only you can edit it.
Please sign your entry. Anonymous entries will be rejected. Because of recent controversial posts, you must now also give your address, in private, to the editor, or state it in your post.
If you have trouble navigating or editing these pages, contact the webmaster: Tim Padfield, email@example.com
