Tips for Wiki Site Users
This wiki is the working area for the Horizon Project Advisory Board members, but as running this project as an open process, this web site is viewable by the general public. However, only Advisory Board members have access to edit the wiki content. Below is some information on wiki editing specific to the board members.
If you are not a member of the Advisory Board, you are welcome to visit this site and engage in any comments on the discussion tabs of any wiki page. We also invite you to share relevant web sites, reports, examples by tagging them in the social bookmarking site delicious.com with the tag
that always displays the most recently tagged web sites.
Logging in to the wiki (Advisory Board Members)
You will receive an email with a link to create your account on the NMC wiki site. If you have not received the email, please contact us by emailing
or calling the main NMC office at 512-445-4200. When you follow the link in the email, you are able to select a password and complete a profile. It then takes one more administrative click on our part to confirm your account, and from then one you have member access to this wiki.
If you are not logged into the wiki, look for the
link in the top right corner of the wiki site. Once you are logged in your user name will be displayed in this top menu bar.
Filling Out Your Profile
So the board members can get to know each other, we ask that you provide some information in your wiki profile. You can find this my clicking the
link in the upper right which leads you to your personal settings page. Look there for a link to
Edit Your Profile
. This is a great place to practice wiki editing- just type in the content you want to have on your page, and use the editing tool bar to stylize, add links, even images. For examples see:
Alan Levine's profile
Rachel Smith's profile
Working In the Wiki
Your tasks as part of the advisory board include adding to the content of the wiki pages on this site. We've created
a video to get you going,
and also have provided notes here.
For any page you are working on, look for the big green
Edit This Page
button to launch the wiki editor. The you can edit this pretty much like a Word document with the tools on the toolbar. You can find a comprehensive guide to editing at
but a few key hints special to the work that we do on the Horizon Project:
If you just list a URL in the text you are writing, it is automatically converted to a link
- we encourage you to provide many links! For the Research Questions, please enter full URLs (do not use the hyperlink editor tool) since we export this as plain text directly to our online voting app
Use the Preview button in the editor
if you are unsure of your work
, but be sure to
when you are done.
This wiki has easy to use tools for adding images, and you can even embed video clips
. To add a video, click the widget icon (it looks like a little TV set), then click
on the left, and follow the instructions for the appropriate kind of video source. This can embed a relevant video right into the discussions in the wiki, as an example, this YouTube video of Stanford's Mobile Phone Orchestra
If you are editing a bulleted list like this one,
pressing RETURN/ENTER creates a new bullet
If you just want to put a single line break, press SHIFT-ENTER
We ask that when you add some new content to the wiki pages, you
annotate what you've added with a "signature" for your contribution
. If you type in 4 tilde symbols (~) in a row, this is a special code that will create an automatic timestamp signature that looks like
