What you can do

Cacheopedia is currently (05 May, 2005) in it's infancy. What we could really use now is people writing articles. Currently we have a very high requested/written article ratio. If you would like to write about something, go for it! Don't worry about writing the best article, or what people will think about it. Just make it as clear and informative as possible. Others will add to it if they feel it could be improved. The whole idea of a wiki is people building off of what other's have started. This is your site, make it what you want.

One way to get the ball rolling is to change empty links into stubs. Let's say you just wrote an article, and wikilinked a bunch of terms from it. Take a minute and turn those empty red links into stubs.

How to make a stub
All you have to do to turn a blank link into a stub is to write a short description of what this article could be about and then add in the stub message by typing this:


That will add this to the page:

Now instead of bombarding your pages with dead links hoping someone will take the initiative to polulate them, you are inviting others to contribute.
