Wiki4Men uses Mediawiki, the same software used on Wikipedia. Anyone who has edited Wikipedia should be able to edit Wiki4Men right away. Similarly, skills learnt here are transferrable to Wikipedia. Written material on Wiki4Men and Wikipedia is released under the same license so articles are transferrable between the sites. Wiki4Men differs from Wikipedia in a number of ways. Site rules are entirely different. In particular, unlike Wikipedia, original research is not prohibited but encouraged.

Site Rules

Licensing

Content on Wiki4Men is available under Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike (CC-BY-SA) license unless otherwise noted. See External Links for further information.

Copyright

Editors retain copyright to material that they personally have contributed to Wiki4Men. This material can be reused elsewhere by the editor. Editors do not hold copyright on the contributions of any other editors. All material on Wiki4Men may be used in accordance with the licensing of course.

Plugins

Wiki4Men only uses a few plugins whereas Wikipedia has many. This means that some functions on Wikipedia will not work on Wiki4Men. If an editor believes that a particular plugin is needed they may ask for this to be installed.

Templates

Wikipedia uses a large number of templates which are not present on Wiki4Men. When transferring articles from Wikipedia to Wiki4Men references to these templates should be removed. It's quite obvious that a template was not removed when loading an article into Wiki4Men as red links starting with Cite: will be observed.

Special Pages

Mediawiki has many special pages to assist you in editing the wiki.
