General Wiki Questions

Q - How do I bold, emphasise, create lists, headings, tables links etc etc...?
A - Have a read of the Wiki Text Formatting Rules to find out how

Q - Who's allowed to edit this Wiki
A - One of the core principles of Wiki is that anyone should be able to edit the content, its public domain if you like. This particular Wiki allows anyone to read the content but you must be logged in as a Waikato user to actually edit the content.

Q - Whats to stop me just wiping all the Wiki content?
A - Nothing really, but you need to login as a Waikato user and we'll have your name logged against the changes. Vandalism is definately one of the WikiIssuesNew Page, however its supposed to be a community site/resource so hopefully the odd tape restore should get around it.
