In addition, we will be hosting wiki mentoring sessions, where you work 1 on 1 with a staff member. You will learn how to organize a great wiki page, by thinking about the relevant, engagement, and organization of the material. This will help you improve your explanation and presentation skills!

This is available on a limited basis. If you are interested, please let me know.

Sir, can't we start a wiki explaining the Mersenne Prime? Because we have a pretty nice wiki about Prime Numbers.

So can you please add this for one of the upcoming parties? Arifur Rahman · 1 year, 1 month ago

I'm in Sir!

Because the experience of the Black Hole Wiki Collaboration was another brainstorming something. Most probably we could get nothing but chaos, if you're not on the role!

BTW, everything in the Brilliant Lounge? Arifur Rahman · 1 year, 1 month ago

@Arifur Rahman Great, looking forward to seeing you there.

Yea, we recognize that it's not easy to take control and direct the wiki collaboration, which is why we're going to mostly run these sessions. Calvin Lin Staff · 1 year, 1 month ago
