As you are all no doubt aware, Kris launched the GMC Wiki a few days ago.

We already have some cool content in there but we want to encourage people to add more great articles!

To help this along, we are adding a new GMC member rank called "GMC Wiki:er" - for now, GMC Wiki:ers will (in addition to gaining huge GMC respect) be entitled to have "GMC Wiki:er" added to their title (Just as Senior members get a phrase of their choice, wiki writers will get an entry that says "GMC Wiki:er")

In order to qualify for this, the member must have made at least 5 posts of high quality. This is not going to be too hard to do, but we will have an eye on quality and we won't let just any articles through. We will be emphasizing content and good formatting.

So, how will it work? As follows:

1. Write 5 or more good quality articles
2. When you think you qualify, send our Wiki Coordinator Fran a PM with links to all of your articles
3. He will read them and either:
a. Approve your promotion
b. Give you feedback and tips on what you need to do to be accepted
4. When you are accepted you will get your title as soon as we can add it.

Simple huh?

What does everyone think?

Is it just me or is there no author shown on the articles because I just wrote one and can not prove that it was done by me.

Theres a section at the bottom of the wiki entitled User Contributions, this can be used to check who has done what smile.gif

Its needed otherwise the wiki would be impossible to moderate wink.gif
