Organisation of the Library

Usage concepts - Readers and Editors

This library is a restricted Wiki system, which means that not everyone is permitted to do everything. Here are the access possibilities:

  • Anonymous reader: As long as you do not create your username and password through a registration process, you are an anonymous reader. As such, you may only browse the Library pages, but can not make any changes to them. You can, however:
    • Participate in discussions on discussion and user talk pages.
  • Registered reader: After you register and subsequently log in using your username and password, you are a registered reader. (See below how to become a registered reader.) You are still not able to change the contents of the most of the pages, but you can additionally (if you wish):
    • Create/edit your “talk page”, so that others can communicate with you by leaving you messages there (note the “mytalk” link in the right upper corner).
    • Edit your own “user page” (after it has been created by administrator) for informing the others about yourself (note the “<yournick>“ link in the right upper corner),
  • Editor: Editors are keeping the Library alive. Ideally, an editor is a person interested in keeping a group of pages up to date. Editors can change most of the pages. (See below how to become an editor. Some users become promoted to an editor without even knowing it.)
  • Supereditor: A supereditor has a full control over most of the pages.
  • Administrator: Administrator has a full control over all aspects of the Library.

Becoming a registered reader

Do the following to become a registered reader:

  1. Go to the Login link (the upper right corner of every page);
  2. On the page that opens then, find and click on the Register link;
  3. In this way you come to the page “Register as new user”. There you should enter the username which suits you the best, your full given and family names and finally (third input field) your valid e-mail. Click on the Register button;
  4. In the following minutes an automatically generated password will be sent to the e-mail address you have provided. After receiving it, use the Login link once more and enter your user name and password on the login page. Click the Login button there;
  5. Remember to logout before leaving the Library.

Becoming an editor

If you have some spare time, if you are particularly interested in some of the pages, if you want to keep them up to date, then demand to become an editor!

  1. Contact the administrator Include your user name and any details you deem of some relevance.
  2. Wait a bit for the reply - the chances are good it will be positive.
  3. Login under your usual user name. Most of the pages will now be editable.
  4. Act responsibly and in the best interest of everyone.
  5. Remember to logout before leaving the Library.

Thank you!
