Most likely, you're reading this page in a browser. If so, you've already accessed the wiki! A wiki is a knowledge base, a place where people can go to learn about a variety of topics. What differentiates a wiki from many other sites on the Internet is its collaborative approach to editing the contents and structure of the site. Most wikis, including this one, allow willing participants to create an account and contribute to the site. This process enables wikis to grow through the efforts of many diverse individuals, hopefully leading to a better experience for all.


Navigation through this wiki occurs primarily through these means:

  1. Hyperlinks: Nearly all blue text is a hyperlink. Clicking the link takes you to the relevant page.
  2. Page Name: Typing in the page name takes you directly to the relevant page. For example, this page is named Wiki.
  3. Experience ID: All experiences have a short code named the "Experience ID" (usually listed near the top of the page). This code also takes you directly to the page. For example, the Experience ID of this page is W1001.
  4. Search Bar: If you're not certain which page you need, you can use the Search Bar at the very top of every wiki page. Entering a search term and then pressing <ENTER> or clicking on the magnifying glass executes a search and provides you with a list of relevant pages.

Multipage Experiences[edit]

Multipage experiences, such as this one, will contain a menu of links to each subtopic, as below. Additionally, subtopics will contain links to their "Prior" and "Next" buttons to their siblings.
