GetWiki

GetWiki has benefited from a series of changes in its software, taking advantage of the changing landscape of publishing in general. What is a Wiki but a published series of pages, not unlike any other website or magazine? Late in 2003, I began GetWiki by forking the underlying Pseudopedia software, MediaWiki, to include remote XML content. The class and function I'd added to the codebase...

In Mathematics, a set of symbols is frequently used in mathematical expressions. As mathematicians are familiar with these symbols, they are not explained each time they are used. So, for mathematical novices, the following table lists many common symbols together with their name, pronunciation and related field of Mathematics. Additionally, the third column contains an informal...

Welcome to GetWiki, a Wiki for the Humanities, Sciences, and “Meta” topics, from Metaphysics to Metadata, running the easy-to-use GetWiki software. The website, first known as “GetMeta”, was launched in April 2004 as a testing platform for Wikinfo, which at...

Web of WikiWebs - GetWiki uses custom external links to remote sites you can use, and formerly allowed links in the form of [[Community:GetWiki]], instead of pasting the entire url into your text. These links, some stored in the database and sometimes called “interwiki” links, are a wonderful invention, if needed by the community. On GetWiki links like the above...


GetWiki

Message Functions - In GetWiki, to create a new custom message, simply create a page in the GetWiki namespace (as we do not use “MediaWiki”), named “GetWiki:Message” which contains the text of the message. Each message needs a unique name with no special characters. As on this page, we can list custom messages so that readers can find them, or create new ones. There are...

GetWiki Endures 20 August, 2014 - Over the past five years, GetWiki.net has enjoyed a period of small improvements to the GetWiki:2.0 software, kindly hosted by ibiblio, and subtle updates to its content, focused primarily on Philosophy. From the perspective of distance, it seems most of us who were involved in early developments of the WikiSphere have gone on...

Know of any goings-on in the meta-worlds of philosophy to software, logical standards to internet standards, metaphysics to metadata?? Post them here (in the forums)! ''older water cooler bottles: 1-2 and see Forum:Importing Wiki|notes on importing...

With GetWiki, you can use custom images, thumbnails and thumbnails with caption links to enhance your articles. Below are some examples of image links, as implemented by the latest GetWiki. Keep in mind that now pixel dimensions specified are obeyed, as well as {{image:metaforum.gif}} WikiCreole-style braces (although, the word “image:”, or “Image:”, is...

GetMeta is the meta topic area, a metanamespace in wiki terms. The GetMeta name was the title of the GetWiki.net wiki, originally, but is now reserved for pages and discussion related to that wiki, as the wiki was renamed to GetWiki on 11 March, 2007, to take advantage of the more well-known name.

Help! - GetWiki is a Bloki application, a general discussion forum, and a “metawiki” for philosophical and technical issues. Some contributors will have experiences from other blogs, forums and wikis, and some will not. Here are a few helpful links, and a few questions are answered below. Editing FAQ - do I have to use wiki coding? - No. GetWiki uses, but is not limited by,...


GetWiki

A Positive Point of View (PPOV) is presenting a subject or concept from a the positive perspective of a proponent, a favourable, affirmative light - as in to "posit" - yet, it also equally encourages critical perspectives to be presented. Criticism of a subject or concept can be placed in sections within the ariticle on that subject or concept, or...

welcome, getwiker! - Depending on what you know about Wikis or the history of the GetWiki site, you may be frustrated on how to create new pages, or edit the ones we have here. As of August 2008, the software has been completely replaced (along with all built-in assumptions about wikis) with a whole new platform (and replaced a couple times since). There are...

GetWiki

Background - GetWiki allows TeX markup for mathematics and logic formulas. Instead of assuming complicated dependencies and server resources on all GetWiki-based wikis just to generate PNG images, GetWiki translates TeX into simple XHTML markup1, with LaTeX parsing and image rendering available as a deprecated option2. In the future, as browsers become even more XML...

import license notices - As you’ll see, I’ve used the boilerplate added to the bottom of imported pages (using Ontology as an example) as such: notices- some content may have been adapted from the Pseudopedia article, “Ontology” under the GNU Free Documentation License or notices- some content may have been adapted from the...

Pseudopedia: Many of us can accept that there is false information, non-verified, inauthentic, highly questionable, false information all over Pseudopedia. A wiki with so many hundreds of thousands of pages is bound to get some things wrong. The problem is, that because Pseudopedia has become the “AOL” of the library and reference world,...

this is an archive, or bottle, of prior water cooler talk... policy talk- NOTE: To all Wikinfo Editors and Sysops: If you would like to import your personal work, user pages, limited encyclopedic entries, from Wikinfo to GetWiki (instead of the now default importing from Pseudopedia), please do so via the easy-to-use...

The GetWiki “meta forum” pages are here to discuss things in the “Forum” namespace. These pages work just as others do, except they do not have their own talk pages (further changes may be forthcoming). So, create/import articles as normal, using the form “Forum:Page Title” and the “GO” button. You can use threaded discussion, blog-style...
