Thoughts on adding to the ShopBot wiki

  • This is not meant to be an encyclopedia so don't feel like you have to write an full article on a topic...a paragraph with some tips or links to more information is great. The easiest way to start is to find a tip or some info from the forum that you think is helpful and copy it in the wiki. If it fits in an existing page then just add it to that page, but if it doesn't fit in an existing page feel free to create a new page. The Help page will get you started.
  • Don't feel like everything you post has to be correctly formatted and perfectly worded and spelled. One of the strong points of wikis is that they're easily edited, so you (or someone else) can come back later on and make changes.
  • Don't be hurt if someone edits one of your pages..it's not personal!
  • If you feel that someone has posted something that's dangerous then please change it, but if it's just your opinion that it's incorrect then you might want to try adding something about your thought to the discussion tab for that wiki page. If you know a different way to do the same thing it's better to add it to the page instead of replacing the existing text.
  • Many times creating your link as a question is the best way to help people locate the answer they're looking for.
