Getting Started

Take a look at some of the entries in the "Bios" category: Category:Bios, to get some idea of what the normal practice is on this wiki.

Points to note

  • As a page name, please use "FirstName LastName" to fit in with all the other entries.
  • At the beginning of the page, put a "tagline" indicating the significance of this person in the context of P2P.
  • If the person has bio pages elsewhere, put in a line (or more) starting with "URL =" or "URLs =" with links to those other sites.
  • Then use the subheading "Bio" for the biographical note.
  • Continue with optional extra subheadings.
  • Finish with the subheading "More Information", perhaps listing other pages on this wiki that have the person's name in the title, or other pages with a strong and particular connection with the person.
  • Put
    at the end of the page, with any other categories representing fields that the person is a significant contributor to.

Here's a simple template:

Jo Bloggs
