Simply create an Enquirer account (your Improbable Island login is no good here)1) and start editing. Here are the rules of how.
Due to some issues with spam signups, Enquirer registrations are currently deactivated [as of October 2017]. This forum post
has a bit more detail, together with references to players who are willing to post on your behalf if you want to weigh in on a forum topic!
If we all follow these simple guidelines, then the Wiki of Lies will be a suitably chaotic and beautiful place.
Try to entertain your audience with your outright lies2).
I WILL delete outright any pages I s33 w1th 0bn0x10us TXTSPK on them unless th3y'r3 funny.3)4)
If you include special characters in a page, they will likely become textual garbage something like this. This is mostly important to think about if you copy text from somewhere else, or if you (foolishly) try to use the special characters menu on the editing page.5)6)7)
If there are pages with spoilers, mark them as such, please. Don't spoil other players' experience of the game and its accompanying Wiki of Lies.
You can even change these rules to whatever you see fit. Anyone with an account can edit any page, so if your changes are unpopular, they'll be reverted back. Gargle-flounce tofu buttock pigmy.
The wiki will often put random periods at the top of a wiki page. Consider ridding the world of those abominations.
If you're not having fun, or if you're having fun and others aren't, then you're doing it wrong.
They'll get all tetchy about it.
The interface to compare old revisions is sort of a bother, so consider including an edit summary when you edit something. You may similarly consider doing only one type of thing during a single edit, so as to present a more tidy edit history.
Our guideline for checking the "Minor Changes" box is the same as Wikipedia's rule for minor edits: "A check to the minor edit box signifies that only superficial differences exist between the current and previous versions. Examples include typographical corrections, formatting and presentational changes, and rearrangements of text without modification of its content. A minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute."
Every so often, you might find a page on the wiki you wish to destroy and salt the earth under, hoping that it never comes back. Or you might find two similar pages15) that you want to combine for fun or profit. Or, perhaps, you want to move a page into a Namespace, which necessitates deleting the old page and creating an identical page in the Namespace.
Some islanders have created tinyurls and whatnot that point to specific pages. Try not to mess those up.
First, you must plunder the page, by putting anything of value on that page onto a different page. Then, delete everything on the page by selecting all the text and punching your keyboard right in the backspace key. Then save. If absolutely nothing is left on the page16), then the wiki will display its "topic does not exist" message.
First find out which pages link to the page you just deleted. In fact, do this before you delete the page. Just go to the page and append "&do=backlink" to the url. E.g., if you're salting the earth under the the page playground, go to http://enquirer.improbableisland.com/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=playground&do=backlink17) If done correctly, this should get you a list of all pages that link to playground. Edit them to link to (a) different page(s).18)
DON'T FREAK OUT!!!!!!!! If you go to the page you destroyed,19) and hit "old revisions", you can change things back and make it right. If you came to your senses soon enough, the changes you made to salt the earth should still be in "recent changes", so you can undo all of them easily enough.
