From DispersiveWiki


We have a description and history of DispersiveWiki, as well as contact information for any queries about this wiki.


We encourage people in this field to update and correct existing pages, or even to create new ones. In order to edit this wiki, you will need to create an account.

Once you are signed in, you can edit any page by clicking on the "Edit" tab at the top of the page. This tab will also show you the existing wiki source code for a page, which should give you a good idea of how to make changes. Don't worry, it's easy to preview any changes and undo any mistakes. You may want to experiment in our sandbox for a "safe" place to test your edits.

We have a list of frequently asked questions (FAQ) about editing.


DispersiveWiki assigns a unique page to each reference that it cites. We welcome updates, corrections, and annotations to existing references, as well as additions of new references, but you may wish to first read our policies on references and our naming conventions first.

General help on how to use wikis

We use the same wiki format as Wikipedia. In particular, the Wikipedia help on editing a page (or the general Wikipedia help) will get you started. Or you can simply click on the edit tab and experiment (perhaps using the existing code as a template). Don't worry, it's easy to preview any changes and undo any mistakes. You can also play in our Sandbox to practice your editing.
