Welcome to the Beijing site on Wikia
This is an experimental wiki for the city of Beijing, capital of the People's Republic of China. If there's any bit of info about Beijing, we'll present it!
The Residents Factor means that the wiki is written from the viewpoints of, and by, residents of Beijing, instead of relying on official documentation or a complete copy of a travel guide.
Writings on Beijing
Any person can join. This is the nature of a Wiki. In fact, you do not even need a user account to make edits; however, a user account is desirable in that you'll have your contributions credited to your personal account.
Writings and articles on Beijing should be from two points of views: a factual point of view and a neutral point of view. By factual, we mean that what you write should be true, and be backed up by evidence. A neutral point of view is also mandated, as it helps keep things in order; by being neutral, things are kept from being "torn apart" by unreasonable criticism and "God-ified" by unsubstantiated, often overdone, praise.
We want this to be the real Beijing, the fair Beijing, the Beijing everyone wants to know about.
How to create your first article
Head on over to Beijing Wiki:Launch Pad and follow the instructions for creating a link. Then click the link and start writing your article.
Some links are in red; these are links which lead to pages that do not exist in the wiki as of that moment. Links in blue, on the other hand, are links which exist.
Images, like the writing, should be both reasonable and neutral, reflecting our two basic points of views here at Beijingology.
Self-created pictures or GFDL/public domain pictures are preferred. By uploading your work, you are, by default, licencing it under the GFDL (GNU Free Documentation Licence); you may also dedicate it to the public domain, or use a Creative Commons compatible licence.
Only when no other "free" (GFDL/public domain/compatible Creative Commons) images are available can "fair use" pictures be used, or pictures be used under a "fair use" context.
Finally: Be Nice!
We expect our users to be nice to one another. Flowers are favoured over flogs; smiles are favoured over snickerings; pleasure is favoured over provocation; warmth is favoured over war.
Also, we're writing about Beijing, and we should respect the city. Please be sure to be nice to Beijing as well. We'll leave an exact interpretation in the eyes of the beholder, but it goes without saying that defamatory slander, especially ungrounded defamatory slander, will be nixed as soon as we're aware of it.
Enjoy Beijing -- enjoy the Beijing Wiki!
