The i3 wiki contains information for members, directors, and officers. It is the unofficial purview of the Wiki Warden, and the beneficiary of the Wiki Wine Workshops, which may be held on Wednesdays.

How to get a wiki account

(Self-account-creation is turned off because of spam.)

If you're a member, you probably already have one; it should've been created during your onboarding. Check the user list, and note that usernames are case-sensitive. (Sorting by date and looking around the time you joined may be helpful.)

If you're not a member, we're happy to create an account for you! We just need a username and email for it. (If you're planning to become a member in the future, please think ahead to whatever email you'll use for your other i3 dealings, and use that here too -- it simplifies things down the line!) Get in touch with Nate B (or other wikicrats ) by email or Slack, and specify the username and email you'd like. Shortly the account will be created, and a random password will be emailed to you. Check your spam folder!

(If you don't get a response in a day or so, post to the members' group with the above info.)



Edit the Wiki To-Do Here

Look for "Good first task →" if you want some simple ones

Newish Content


  • Add some "good first task" tasks to this list, for new editors to get their feet wet.
  • Verify the Financial category has been created then go through all the Board Minutes and find the financial reports and make sure they all have the [[Category: Financial]] tag in the page (preferably at the bottom).
  • What is Membership how does it overlap with Membership Committee and can they be combined?
  • add Extension:UrlGetParameters so we can have a printEquipment?page=whatever that just has the label on it




  • EAP: Reformat all dates to be yyyy-mm-dd
  • EAP: sorttable/sorting order on transcluded queries - probably the user table generation
  • EAP: make user tables and trainer tables have prettylinks
  • EAP: add comment on authorized users table that ZCs should email wiki@ if they can't edit
    • Alternatively, make it unrestricted until someone goes dumb and tries to add themselves without actually getting authorized first
  • EAP: Figure out how to add second trainer to lasers
    • Tried to make the trainer field parallel to the owners field, but it isn't working. It could be because the trainers field is in a multiple-instance field. Also, when formatting for display, the owners field uses an arraymap, but since the trainers property is a subobject, everything is weird. I don't remember how to call an arraymap within a subobject declaration, or even if it can be done. Everything is confusing and future jamie should take pity on this jamie and not be mad at her :-(
  • Meeting minutes: Use template subclusion to auto-populate with old business, previous action items, current space projects, even zones and sigs maybe
    • See if wikibot can help with this
  • Make ToDos editable with forms
  • Learn cargo and see if it's worth rewriting all the SMW stuff in a more database-like format
  • Talk pages would be more useful if they indicated LOUDLY that they exist, or that they have new content on them, cuz on our wiki they're so rare most of us forget to look for 'em

Fixing broken things

  • make SMW error icon mouse over-able like it's supposed to
    • Jamie has advice from the SMW mailing list somewhere in her inbox.
  • Fix advocate name query on HOWTO Be Member Advocate

serverside stuff

  • commit config
  • fix plugins git stuff
