After our upgrade website we now have Wikis available to our members and guests.
If you don’t know what a Wiki is then you might still know http://wikipedia.org/ - the biggest wiki and I think the first wiki. The succes of Wikipedia has spread to many other areas, and some say that Wiki’s are the most important thing which has happend on the internet sinces Blogs. The big difference from “normal” web sites to Wiki’s is that it is the users who write the information. If you see a page and it contains wrong or missing information, then you can login and edit that page or add a new page. So a wiki is really a big document which is always a “work-in-progress”. New information can always be added.
Here on Dynamics User Group we currently have two Wikis. One for testing, where you can just play around. And one for Dynamics NAV Development. But if you want, then we can start othe Wiki’s ex. Dynamics AX or Dynamics CRM Wikis.
You find the Dynamics User Group wikis at http://dynamicsuser.net/wikis/ or from the main navigation menu.
All members of Dynamics User Group is able to contribute to the Wiki’s by writing new pages, modifying existing, or simply comment the pages (if you think something is missing or wrong, but you don’t know how to write it in the page or just want to discuss it first).
When editing the Wiki’s on DUG, then it also contributes to your Member Points. Every activity (except just reading) will give you more points:
- Add a new page = 40 points
- Update an existing page = 20 points
- Add a comment = 5 points
So when we soon run the “Dynamics User Group Community Award” competition, then this will be an easy way to boost your points.
Please also don’t forget the Dynamics Book WiKi. This wiki was started by my co-admin David Singleton and it’s focus is primary related to the go-live process of a Dynamics NAV installation.
