-- JDuprez N.B.: this is only a tentative page, useful contents will have to be added with time...

This site's charter#


AnswerMe expected content: What should go or not into

Tentative content:

  • JSPWiki engine and its applications
  • General Wiki philosophy information/discussion?
  • General Development topics (Patterns, Java/JSP,...)
    • --JDuprez I don't think so. Numerous sites, including Wikis, already exist. Better link to them from some bridge page, or include interwiki links.

Relationship with official documentation#

AnswerMe How to comment or question pages ending up in the official documentation without harming them.

Editorial Policy#

AnswerMe Janne, how do you manage to, e.g., include only relevant documentation in the documentation? Do you scan and review all official pages before releasing them in the bundle?


AnswerMe expected content: what are good posting practices, beyond Wiki Etiquette, esp. related to topics adressed, external links, identity exposition,...

Also see WikiGardener.

Users Management#

To be completed

How to create an account#

There isn't a full-fledged notion of user account, but anyone who contributes is encouraged to identify himself, and create a home page, and either register in the Users List or sign in the Guest Book.

Using your "account"#

Indeed there isn't anything preventing you from using anyone else's name (you can't login but you can (LinkMe:assert) youself as someone else. Of course, we and the Wiki Etiquette rely that you won't.

You can sign you contributions with a link to your page (like this: --JeromeDuprez). Even if you don't, as soon as you have logged in or are asserted, the history management will mark your changes under your name, in individual page history or in RecentChanges. That shouldn't refrain you from posting non-anonymously, as soon as you abide by the Wiki Etiquette and the site's charter, all regulars here will be friendly whatever you add.

How to reset/receive one's password#

-- JérômeDuprez Janne or whoever, I am so ashamed, but I forgot my password, I had to create an alias to log in again, is there something you can do about it?

Fighting Garbage#

Three topics to discuss here:

  • How to refactor and reorganize contents
  • Policy to ask question without adding noise to the pages
  • Fighting spam

Fighting Spam#

The jspwiki engine (and this site) includes a Spam Filter, based on keywords, however on the long run spammer always bypass such preventions.

This site also relies on WikiGardeners to edit out mischieved entries. But this is manual and tiresome even to the best-intended ones.

Isn't there some techniques to make spamming edits more difficult ? Like, adding a field in the edit form requiring to enter text melted in a blended image, or asking today's date, or whatever. Nothing that actually prevent spamming, but at least renders it harder, without hampering too much well-intended edits.
