It's easy to help
If you have a small change head on over to the Field Guide / Wiki Support Forum. There you can post and an editor will hopefully be able to include your changes to the wiki.
Things you might submit in the Support Forum:
- A typo or small correction
- A photo that you see missing, or that you think we could use
- A description of a hike or destination that we don't currently have in the wiki. An editor can create a page based on the description you submit.
- A description of a hike or destination and pictures. Check out existing pages for ideas. The more information you can provide the better.
Becoming an editor
The Portland Hikers Field Guide is collaborative effort and has become a labor of love. Our goal is for it to become a great resource for hikers throughout the Northwest. This will not be possible without a lot of help from a lot of people, so we're always looking for more people to help out as editors. There are many hikes yet to be covered and many more can be improved with more information. A higher quantity of information will only enhance the site.
On the other hand, if quantity is one leg of success, quality and organization are the other two. The information needs to be accurate and presented to standard ways to best communicate to the wiki readers. To that end, we've done everything we can to ensure a standardized system. We've developed a schema and templates that must be followed for all pages. PortlandHikers.org welcomes your help, but we require that you get to know how things work before you contribute. This means checking out the Field Guide, learning the basics of MediaWiki and also learning the schema and guidelines that are specific to this wiki.
