SikhiWIKI is an encyclopedia of the Sikh Way of Life written collaboratively by many of its readers. Lots of people are constantly improving SikhiWIKI, by constantly making changes, all of which are recorded on the page history and the Recent Changes page. Nonsense and vandalism are usually removed quickly.
Lots of people are constantly improving SikhiWIKI, by constantly making changes, all of which are recorded on the page history and the Recent Changes page. Nonsense and vandalism are usually removed quickly. The whole point of SikhiWIKI is that you don’t have to be a scholar, a pundit or a gyani to contribute. We all have the experience of what it means to live as a Sikh. Now’s the time to share our wisdom, insights and experiences with each other.
The basis of a WIKI is trust and respect for each other. The beauty of a good WIKI is that it is self-regulating and self-cleansing. You can post anything of value that you wish to contribute, but all contributions will need to be in good taste. If you want to stand on a soapbox and lecture, preach, advocate your personal or political view – this isn’t the place to do that. If your stuff gets erased, that’s probably why.
Those who want to use SikhiWIKI to advance their personal agenda will not be allowed to participate.
Let’s build something new and beautiful that is of use to everyone to understand the Sikh Way of Life and what it means in today’s world.
As with any web community, it takes a while for a new endeavor to take form, and gather momentum. The key principles of Sikhi Wiki are:
- No fear, jump in and contribute. You can write, edit, review, delete. . . whatever makes sense to you.
- Trust – We build trust by honoring each others’ work. Trust the process. You may not think that what you have to say has value, let the group decide that.
- Be graceful. SikhiWiki is the place for ideas, insights, reflections, realizations and inspirations. It’s not the place for personal agendas, politics, diatribes, or attacks on anyone.
The wiki culture is new and it is defined by the fact that what is of value stays and what isn’t relevent will be deleted or changed by the community. Gradually the Wiki takes form and its value increases daily. So our vision is simple, if you can type, logon and contribute. If you can’t type, go get someone who can, have them logon and make your contribution anyway!
