Working on tinWiki is fun, and a bit addicting. And now you get points for it. I know, it's not as good as cash, but I am doing the best I can here!
(One quick point for WOS - Could you edit the title of the thread to refer to the 10,000 figure for points? It may help get more attention. I see that
the thread with a reference in the thread title to 5,000 points has got more views than this one...)
As William One Sac knows, I share his desire to encourage greater participation in the Tinwiki. I think the occasional thread like this one is a good
way to draw attention to the Tinwiki and make people think about contributing to it.
Why not give it a quick go?
I think it is a bit of a shame that so few ATS members appear to be aware of the Tinwiki
or contribute to it. The Tinwiki
will only fulfill its potential if more members of ATS
(or non-members for that matter...) create new entries and/or edit the existing entries.
I’m not sure why more members of ATS don’t contribute to Tinwiki
. I’ve sought to
address some of the potential reasons on the Tinwiki page I created
, which also gives some links to some help for beginners.
ATS encourages all its members (and, indeed, non-members) to participate in the Tinwiki
either by creating new pages or editing existing pages. It’s not as hard as you might think and ATS places considerable value on contributions made
. This is reflected in the number of points that can be awarded to those
participating in the Tinwiki
. New entries can be awarded up to 10,000 points.
Why not take a few minutes to try to add a relevant paragraph to an existing Tinwiki
(or, if you are feeling slightly more ambitious, start a new page)?
Any mistakes can be undone quickly and easily.
Most users of the Tinwiki
want to encourage others to participate, so will be very
understanding of those trying to learn.
If you accidentally edit something, and have any difficulty at all in sorting it out, just shout out for help on the
ATS discussion forum relating to the Tinwiki
If there is any issue which is causing you to hesitate editing the Tinwiki
, or creating
new entries, the existing users may be able to assist. Just post the concern or issue on the
ATS discussion forum relating to Tinwiki
All the best,
