A Beginners Look At Wiki

Being a webmaster of 15 years I have to admit I have never before tried to use wiki. Recently I joined one of my favorite game sites on wikia with the intention of learning to work with wiki. I've used html, PHP and some CSS and am always furthering my knowledge of scripting.

After a short time of trying out wiki I have to admit I am somewhat perplexed but intrigued by it's simplicity and complexity wrapped in to one. I'm not a slow learner when it comes to script, and working with scripts such as PHP, although daunting, has never slowed me down.

One thing I have to admit,wiki is fun! I know in the short time that I have been learning it's use I am enjoying and finding a new way of looking at scripting. This coming from a person who cut their teeth on Terminal Control Language many years ago Guide to The Pick Operating System (TCL).

With all of that said I recently installed my own wiki page on one of my sites and am using it to become more proficient, as I learn what I can from wikia. I did this so I can become a more functional member of the community as well as having my own sandbox to work from.

For anyone who has never used wiki or if you are thinking about it and feel apprehensive, as a new user I can tell you, jump in and get your feet wet the waters fine!!
