Welcome to GWN Wiki
What is a Wiki?
A wiki is generally a website or occasionally a software application that allows the easy creation and editing of any number of interlinked web-pages via a web browser using a simplified markup language or a WYSIWYG text editor. Wikis are typically powered by wiki software and are often used to create collaborative wiki websites, to power community websites, for personal note taking, in corporate intranets, and in knowledge management systems.
Wikis may exist to serve a specific purpose, and in such cases, users use their editorial rights to remove material that is considered "off topic." Such is the case of the collaborative encyclopedia Wikipedia. In contrast, open purpose wikis accept content without firm rules as to how the content should be organized.

What is GWN Wiki all about?
As mentioned above wikis may exist to serve a specific purpose, in the case of Gay Witch Network's Wiki the application is intended for members of GWN to contribute information and resources and yes even counter perspectives where appropriate. It is the hope of the forum Moderation Team that eventually this Wiki space might prove to be an invaluable resource for those practicing various forms of neo-paganism and modern witchcraft and perhaps even others besides.
How to use GWN Wiki...
Using the GWN Wiki is actually a lot simpler than one might expect. Once you have signed up as a member of Gay Witch Network you can begin to contribute material to the Wiki by either private messaging a Moderator with a submission (anyone of the Moderation Team would be too delighted to post it on a new topic if required).
However, a new topic page isn't always required and you can still contribute by first clicking on Wiki in The Helix section. Then to the left-hand side of the screen you will see a sidebar with Index (show) at the bottom. Click it and the page should reload with Index (hide) now displayed and a further list of topic pages underneath. Click into any of these. You can then rate the topic posts on a Five-star rating system or click the Add button to add comments.
It is preferred if contributors please try and remain consistent in their methods of citation and referencing material. Contributors can add in hypertext links and text based sources to add weight to their contributions and this is generally encouraged. (N.B. The Admin/Moderators reserve the right to edit material for the sake of clarity and structure, any offensive material may be removed).
