General Information for Users of this Wiki

Welcome to the CSO members' wiki. This is where we keep everything that CSO members need to know.

It's a fairly open system. Anyone with access to the Members portion of the CSO web site can read its content, and getting permission to improve it is easy.

The software supporting this wiki is MediaWiki. If you're not sure how to get started, check out the Help link at the left.

History buffs can find information from 2015 an earlier in the old members' site.

Instructions to Contributors

Editing Sandbox

Managing Users

For the most part, no user management is required.

One exception is when a new user chooses a name contrary to the quidelines. After discussing it with them and agreeing on a better name, you can change it using the Renameuser extension. It can be found on the page Special:SpecialPages#Users and rights, but is only visible to administrators.
