Even if you've never edited a wiki before, you can create a quick listing in MyWikiBiz.


Overview

To become a contributing member of MyWikiBiz, you ought to add some content to our directory. And here's the good news: adding a listing is easy.

First, you need to register for an account which requires only a $5 activation fee (see Help:Registration for more details). Only registered users may create or edit content on MyWikiBiz.

Second, make sure you have thoroughly searched MyWikiBiz to confirm that an article about your topic isn't already established.

Then, if you're certain your topic has not yet been addressed, you must next decide if your listing belongs in the Directory Space, or whether it is more suitable for the Main Space pages (or even User Space).

Primary Listings

Directory Space topics should include anything that has standing in a court of law:

  • Commercial businesses (title of page should be the business name, not the industry or marketing tag)
  • Web sites
  • Non-profit organizations and foundations
  • Formally organized or registered private clubs
  • Governmental bodies
  • Living persons (including yourself)
  • Deceased persons who still have an active legal estate

Secondary (Property) Listings

  • Property or products (such as Mickey Mouse or Microsoft Word), should be created as a sub-page of the company listing
--For example, [[Directory:The Walt Disney Company/Mickey Mouse]] or [[Directory:Microsoft/Microsoft Office/Microsoft Word]]

Ownership

Note: during this important time of building up our new directory, users are allowed to create Directory Space articles about entities which they do not own or have a legal interest in. Of course, you may not use MyWikiBiz to defame or libel others. When the rightful owner of the subject of a page topic arrives at MyWikiBiz, they may "claim" the page, to which edit privileges will be transferred immediately by a MyWikiBiz sysop.

Main Space

Main Space pages should include everything else that doesn't have standing in a court of law. This would include things and processes like:
