The FIRSTwiki

What is a wiki? Well to quote from an excellent example of one, WikiPedia, it is a "collection of interlinked web pages, any of which can be visited and edited by anyone at any time (collaborative software). The concept and software was invented by Ward Cunningham."

How will this benefit FIRST? If it catches on with members of the community, we could, in a matter of a month or two, have a resource with information on everything involed in FIRST:
  1. pages for each team
  2. pages for key people (and for anyone who cares to make one, like me)
  3. pages for all the important elements of the robot (FRC, motors, and other kit of parts stuff)
  4. FIRST history stuff
  5. etc. etc. etc.....
I know there is already a thread on this topic here, but i am starting this topic to discuss and inform people about this specific wiki that I have set up for FIRST use, the FIRSTwiki (thanks SilverStar ). I am sure that this could turn out to be an excellent thing, but it needs people to use it to become anything. Even if you aren't interested, just take a look at WikiPedia or try editing in the FIRSTwiki sandbox. If you'd like to start a page, just type in http://www.afiber.com/FIRSTwiki/index.php?title=xxxx and replace xxxx with the title of your proposed page. Feel free to register here so that all your changes are credited to you. If you have any questions, post them here or, even better, the FIRSTwiki User Questions page. Thanks.

Re: The FIRSTwiki

I remember back in the day when I wanted something cool to happen, I'd have to write code and administer it. Thank god I'm out of that rat race. Now I can just say something, and BAM! it implements itself.

Thanks Max!

I know my team will be contributing quite a bit in the future.

PS: We have some talented graphics people, and we noticed you're using the default logo...

Re: The FIRSTwiki

Well i haven't really done that much.... yet. Just dled the code and setup a DB. There will be a lot more in the future.

As for the logo, thanks. I didn't want to just throw something stupid together, and I have to get it approved if it has the FIRST logo in it or something like that... I was planning on asking people to help after the place got going a bit, but it looks like i have it even easier than you, i don't even have to ask

Re: The FIRSTwiki

Hey! Added a stub for my team. Also, I figured I'd give it a shorter url:

http://wiki.1418.org

I'd be willing to register a domain name, but I need to settle some debts before I do. Can you host this? I have a linux box up in my room, and 100mb on a nice host, but maybe we should solicit a sponsor to host it...

I big step (I think) towards making this happen is to MAKE A LOGO! I'd do it, But I don't know what to do!

I also encourage people to add stubs on various topics to get a framework down. A lot of the stuff I've done is just a link to the appropriate web site.

I don't see any problems adding it to our server, at something like:

http://wiki.chiefdelphi.com/

Just thought I'd put the offer out there..

Re: The FIRSTwiki

Well it looks like its really getting going, its not just SilverStar and I typing away for hours on end anymore. 58 pages, 17 users, 926 edits.

As for the offers for hosting, thanks a lot. Once again, im happy to see how quick the FIRST community is to try to help out. I would be very interested, but I have to make several requests (yes, im greedy).
  1. Linux
  2. I need to be able to install various modules and binaries to implement features like math rendering and more (in the future).
  3. ftp acccess to wherever its being hosted from
  4. This doesn't really affect whoever hosts it, but i think it will need a domain of its own. Helps keep the wiki image of being free and open.

We can offer all that. No shell access, but ftp and the ability to ask me to install whatever software & module(s) you need.
