Tips and Tricks for working with Wikipedia

Wikipedia -- the free online multi-lingual collaborative encyclopedia -- is a treasure trove of information about food security, crops, livestock, forestry, fisheries and other " FAO subjects." FAO staff are now being encouraged to edit Wikipedia articles in their areas of technical expertise. To this end, we organized a discussion session on the basics of Wikipedia for which I prepared few "Tips and Tricks" (PDF) on editing and working with Wikipedia. They are based on experiences our team had while organizing the social reporting for the WSFS 2009 as well as those shared by my colleagues Michael Riggs, George Kourous, Mehmet Korkmaz and Alexander Jones.


If you have additional tips please share them here.
