Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Why the weird syntax?
A. Like most Wikis, the site doesn't use HTML for formatting (security reasons etc). A guide to the special syntax can be found here. Unfortunately it can be quite confusing at first. Best rule - keep it simple. If you like, just post plain text and our editors will format it for you.

Q. Why didn't you use the MediaWiki core like Wikipedia?
A. It's heavyweight software designed for very large wiki implementations. Currently beyond the scope of this site.

Q. My pet goldfish died and no-one seems to know why - can I include it?
A. Probably not. But if there was an unexplained epidemic of goldfish deaths that had been mentioned in the media, then yes!

Q. Why is there no technology section?
A. If a man-made article has a behaviour which no-one (not even the designers) can explain, let Wikenigma know, and it'll be up-for-inclusion. Amazingly, there are some examples - see for example Neural Networks

Q. Why can't I create a new page?
A. You can! But you need to be a registered user first. Once you're a registered user, the easiest way is to use the 'Create a new article' link (above left).

Q. Why can't I edit this page?
A. Some pages, like the site info pages, aren't available for public editing - but you can of course edit any of the content pages, or create new ones, if you're a registered user
