Wiki Glossary


The Wiki Glossary lists some of the most commonly used terms in Wikipedia. Below are a few of the same.

A stub is an article considered too short to give an adequate introduction to a subject (often one paragraph or less). Stubs are marked with stub templates, a specific type of cleanup template, which add the articles to stub categories sorted by subject matter.

A Wikifairy is a Wikipedian who beautifies wiki entries by organizing messy articles, and adding style, color and graphics. The efforts of WikiFairies are normally welcome, though they do not necessarily create new articles or affect the substantive content of the articles they edit.

If you need to know Wikiquette or the etiquette of working with others on Wikipedia, click here.

Wikiblame is a tool for searching past versions of a particular article for a particular string of text. Usually used to determine who added the string of text.

A Wikipedia Village pump is the section where used to discuss the technical issues, policies, and operations of Wikipedia. It can only be speculated that, like the modern office water cooler, the village pump must have been a gathering place to discuss ideas for the improvement of the locale in which its members dwelled, and hence the name.

Well…the list of terms in Wiki Glossary continues…a really interesting read.

So what’s this blog about?

Another attempt? Well yes. Attempting to figure out another sustainable model (there are some other attempts going on parallel-ly). Well, we have a lot of questions in mind. we read up stuff, we do some research to find answers to these questions. This is an attempt to publish that little 15-20 minute research.
