The Wiki page megapost

Below are some points you should keep in mind while working on your Wikipedia page. (I’ll keep updating this page as I add more details.)

  1. Consult the syllabus for more details on rules/procedures etc.
  2. Here are the deadlines:
    • March 22: Wikipedia topic
    • March 29: One page report due
    • April 19: Deadline for in-house wiki
    • April 26: You’ll get back comments from me
    • May 2: Your entry should be uploaded to Wikipedia by this date
    • May 9: Take care of any (reasonable) comments on your Wikipedia page
  3. As soon as you decide on your topic, mark your decision on the who’s doing what page on the in-house Wiki (and let me know by email too).
  4. Before you can do the above, log in to the wiki first (using your UBIT credentials) and then email me: I’ll need to give your contributor rights– after you are a contributor, you can create your page using “Create Content.” (Also your created pages will not be visible on the front page by default– I’ll need to do the move.)
  5. Take a look at the entries from previous years (a local copy resides on the in-house wiki) to get a feel for what is expected. Note: this year I’ll be more strict about making sure that your entry is accessible to a general audience.
  6. Any topic related to coding theory works: just make sure that either a stub exists on Wikipedia or your new page can be linked off from existing Wikipedia page(s). This information is required in your one page report.
