In a nutshell, think of Ultipedia as spirit of the game as applied to an instructional website.
Ultipedia is a wiki.
- If you're unfamiliar with wikis read about the basics at Wikipedia.
- If you want to contribute see Wikipedia's editing handbook.
If you feel like helping out, the best thing you can do is add content to the site. See Ultipedia:Community Portal for our current wishlist/TODO.
What Ultipedia is:
- a dictionary for Ultimate/Disc related terms
- an encyclopedia for Ultimate concepts and culture
- a centralized resource for topical ultimate related information..
- at the very minimum Ultipedia should have pointers to other pertinent sites
- a site where rational argument and counterarguments are encouraged
What Ultipedia is not:
- a forum or mailing list (entries should be descriptive not conversational) (for a forum see ultitalk.)
- a place to flame your opponents or those with opposing views (for flames see RSD)
Ultipedia was put online August 1, 2006 and is maintained by Ivar Vasara in an effort to provide a home for a community driven Ultimate resource. John and theMindSet joined in and contributed to seed content before the official launch.
The British Columbia Disc Sports Society has been generously hosting the site since August 6th, 2006.
The software that powers Ultipedia is called MediaWiki. Until the help files are fleshed out, consult the User's Guide for information on using the wiki software.
