Hi Phlox -- we are excited to have Policypedia as part of the Wikia community!
Starting a new wiki can be overwhelming, but don't worry, the Wikia Community Team is here to help! We have put together a few guides to getting started. They say imitation is the best form of flattery so absolutely check out other wikis on Wikia for ideas on layout, ways to organize your content, etc. We are all one big family at Wikia and the most important thing is to have fun!
- Our guide to Getting Started gives you 5 things you can do right now to set your wiki up for success
- We also put together some Advice On Starting a Wiki which provides a more a in-depth look at some of the important things you should consider when building a wiki
- If you are new to wikis in general than we recommend checking our new user FAQ
If you need help (which trust me we ALL do) you can access our full in-depth help at Help Wikia, or email us through our contact form. Also, you can visit our live #wikia chat channel any time. A lot of the veteran "Wikians" hang out here so its a good place if come if you want to get some advice or simply make friends.
Now, go edit! We look forward to seeing this project thrive!
Best wishes, Catherine Munro
Hi, I found your page from the Wikia search box. I'm not sure what's happening here as it seems like the wiki is at the very early stages of development. I'm a policy analyst, political scientist and blogger on US politics. I'm looking to contribute or start a policy wiki that is focused on policy ideas rather than election horse races.
It seems this site so far is a subtle Obama endorsement - I'm not sure how that fits into E-democracy but I'm willing to listen. It seems to me that the wiki requires many writers from all walks of life to start weighing in, but I have to say it was very hard to find the site. Maybe some viral promo plans?
Hope there's somebody there... Mharring 18:00, 2 July 2008 (UTC)Mharring
