Wiki Weekend Party - Brainstorming sessions

As you are aware, we have been making numerous improvements to the wikis writing process. We have also been developing a Wiki writing process, so that everyone can write a great wiki page easily. I’ve tried this out with several people, and am excited to share Pi Han Goh’s success with Cryptogram and Sandeep Bhardwaj’s success with Arithmetic-Geometric Progressions. If you have any specific feedback for them, please let them know in #logic and #mathematics respectively.

For this Wiki Weekend Party, I would like to share this process with you, and work through the steps to develop out a great wiki similar to those above. We’ve chosen 2 wiki pages, and would like you to help us out:

  1. List out interesting examples and concepts that help contribute to an understanding of the page. You can do so directly in the wiki page, by selecting an Example # and editing just that section.
  2. Meet up on Slack at the appointed time, to discuss how the page should be structured, and organize it accordingly.
  3. Add in the details of the explanations and examples, knowing that people would be motivated to read through this article.

Here are the steps that we will accomplish during the meeting:

  1. Come up with a bunch of examples
  2. Discuss the examples
  3. Choose the ones that we love (and didn’t)
  4. Figure out the target audience, and motivation for reading the page
  5. Discuss how to organize the structure of the page
  6. Settled on what the structure of the page should look like
  7. Assign out sections to write

Let me know if you have any questions!


As a reminder, this is what makes a great Brilliant wiki:

Thanks for helping with Operator search! This is what the community did

  1. Came up with a bunch of examples that they wanted to see on the page

  2. Talked about the examples

  3. Chose the examples we loved (and didn't)

  4. Figured out the target audience, and the motivation for reading this page

  5. Discussed how to organize the structure of the page, bearing in mind the target audience and the motivation

  6. Settled on what the final structure of the page should look like

And now, we're ready to fill in the details! We know how the page will look like, and when things will be covered. So it's much easier for everyone to add in small parts into each section :)

Oh sorry! You just missed us. Check out #mathematics to see how the discussion went. I also gave a brief summary of it above.

I look forward to seeing you next week!

Please reply to this comment if you're interested in attending the meeting, but would be unable to make the time slots listed.

Don't worry, we will organize more of these next week, so if you let me know what time works for you, I can adjust accordingly.
