Relationship with the wikipedia

Hello everyone. This is Daniel Duque, from UAM. First, I think this is an excellent idea, but when I heard from it I was afraid we would be overlapping with the famous wikipedia project. It seems that this wiki will focus on more technical stuff, specific to our lines of research. However, it seems a good idea to a) link to (and from!) wikipedia articles as much as we can b) grab material from wikipedia. According to the "copyleft" status of the latter, it seems all we need is to include an "contains material from this wikipedia entry (+link)". I've created or modified some entries already, which I will paste here.

A more explicit comment on the use of Wikipedia material in SklogWiki can now be found in the SklogWiki style guide, located in the Help section. --Carl McBride 12:30, 26 February 2007 (CET)

Link to image broken


I tried to link here from my personal page, but the link to the png image seems broken ( Which would be the right path?

Oops! On upgrading to MediaWiki 1.11.0, I seem to have forgotten to port the icon image. It should now be working.
All the best and many thanks -- Carl McBride (talk) 14:57, 29 October 2007 (CET)

Creating a new page

I am a bit ashamed, but I still don't know how to create an entry from scratch. I usually link to a nonexisting entry from an existing one, then create it. How does one make this? Should this be on the "toolbox", or in how to start editing?
