Help test the MediaWiki software

The MediaWiki software that runs Wikipedia is under constant development. Do you want to see the latest, greatest features? Then head over to test.wikipedia.org, where the development branch is tested. But be careful. That wiki runs in debugging mode, so even the smallest problem in the code might cause it to spew out error messages. Take a look at the list of features under development in the MediaWiki roadmap. MediaWiki already is one of the most feature-rich wiki engines; see the MediaWiki feature list. MediaWiki and its dependencies are open source, so if you are the inquisitive type, please take a look at the code and help improve it.

Wiki-specifics[edit]

I've been a registered Wikipedian since May 2004, after reading about the project in a friend's LiveJournal. It didn't take long for an obsession to develop. I enjoy fixing grammar, punctuation, and spelling errors, which is what first got me hooked. Since then, I've moved back and forth among a lot of different areas: wikifying, hitting the random page button and fixing what I can, sorting stubs into categories, cleaning unsuitable articles from the new pages, and Recent Changes patrol. Now and then, I create a new article: 80 so far. The most unpleasant to research was Creeping eruption.

Interesting quotes[edit]

  • The problem with Wikipedia is that it only works in practice. In theory, it's a total disaster. - Gareth Owen
