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:
- 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.
- Meet up on Slack at the appointed time, to discuss how the page should be structured, and organize it accordingly.
- Add in the details of the explanations and examples, knowing that people would be motivated to read through this article.
|Wiki Page||Operator Search||Division Algorithm|
|Current status||Fleshing out details||Fleshing out details, mostly done|
|Target Audience||Level 1-2 Logic||Level 1-2 Number Theory|
|Motivation||Play and experiment||Conceptual understanding|
|Meeting at||8/14 8am PDT, 8:30pm IST||8/16 7am PDT , 7:30pm IST|
Here are the steps that we will accomplish during the meeting:
- Come up with a bunch of examples
- Discuss the examples
- Choose the ones that we love (and didn’t)
- Figure out the target audience, and motivation for reading the page
- Discuss how to organize the structure of the page
- Settled on what the structure of the page should look like
- Assign out sections to write
Let me know if you have any questions!
As a reminder, this is what makes a great Brilliant wiki:
