As many of you know, AboveTopSecret.com sponsors our very own, conspiracy and alternative topic wiki, called
. The goal of this wiki is to have a place on the internet where people can go and find out
about subjects that are near and dear to us. Given the huge audience that ATS enjoys, tinWiki has the potential to become huge and the prime source
for all topics unusual.
However, tinWiki has had some growing pains. It has grown in spurts. As we are focused on the long term vision for the site, I would like to let our
members know about some incentives for people to create new articles and to edit existing ones. I will award an avererage of between 1,000 to 10,000
points for properly formatted articles. As people who have created articles in the past can attest, I am very generous when it comes to this. Because
by the very nature of a wiki, no article is ever really complete, and anyone is welcome to join in and improve exisiting articles.
For those of you who may not be familiar with wiki editing and article creation, I can assure you there is no reason to feel overwhelmed. Once you
learn a few basics you will be a pro. We have been working on creating a help section that is as easy and intuitive to use as possible. You can browse
some of the help topics here: HELP
. Also, if you ever have a question about something, do not
hesitate to shoot me a u2u or ask me a question on my talk page.
Another really great resource on tinWiki is the Community Portal Page
. So be sure
to come by and check that out. We also have our own working forum
where you can ask
questions, make announcements etc... I would also like to clarify one thing. The 10,000 points range is not neccessarily the most points you can get
for a submission. Truly outstanding articles will be rewarded accordingly. So thats it, lets get cracking. There are literally thousands of topics
that need to be covered.
