A Wiki only works if people contribute to it! Don't be afraid, it's easy. Just click on the bottom of a page to edit it.
 
  
A couple quick guidelines for making contributions :
+
! <h2 style="margin:0;background-color:#cef2e0;font-size:120%;font-weight:bold;border:1px solid #a3bfb1;text-align:left;color:#000;padding:0.2em 0.4em;">About the Varsity Outdoor Club</h2>
 +
|-
 +
|style="color:#000"|{{About}}<!-- To Modify, got to www.ubc-voc.com/wiki/Template:About -->
 +
|-
  
* Write articles with a '''neutral point of view''' (NPOV). Since articles will be edited over and over, they need to be written in a neutral style so that consensus on the content can eventually be reached.  
+
! <h2 style="margin:0;background-color:#cef2e0;font-size:120%;font-weight:bold;border:1px solid #a3bfb1;text-align:left;color:#000;padding:0.2em 0.4em;">Trip Planning Resources</h2>
* Try to '''avoid''' putting '''jokes''' on the pages. Humour is good on websites managed by a single person, but on a Wiki if everyone adds a joke, soon the real content will be lost.
+
|-
* '''Avoid''' creating '''very short''' stub articles that have no useful content.
+
|style="color:#000"|{{Things_to_do}}<!-- To Modify, got to www.ubc-voc.com/wiki/Template:Things_to_do -->
* '''Do''' create '''links''' to pages that don't yet exist but that should be written.
+
|-
* If you just want to see how this works practice in the [[Sandbox]].
+
* Consider creating an '''account''' so that we can keep track of who's making changes. But remember it's '''not required''' you can edit a page without logging in.
+
  
Go ahead and create a new page or edit an existing one. Don't worry about it not being perfect the first time around, that's the beauty of the Wiki, someone else will come along and improve it. A complete history of every page is kept, so don't worry and be '''bold''', pages can always be reverted to a previous version.

Welcome to the VOC Wiki!

This wiki is managed by the Varsity Outdoor Club of the University of British Columbia (UBC). A wiki is a collaborative web site that can be edited by anyone. The content of this site is primarily of interest to VOC members. However, since it includes general information about hiking, climbing, mountaineering, and back-country skiing in the Coast Range it is likely to be of interest to others as well.

We welcome your contribution! However, please read the instructions before posting anything. We welcome contributions from club members and non-members alike. With your careful attention to quality this will become a very useful resource. This is a place for factual information with a long shelf life.
