Not so clear what has to be done. How many articles? Should participants only create a website, or fully support it’s functioning for some time? What about domain name, dealing with load? I think a bit more details can be helpful

The current practice of contests provides for the creation of only one work. Website creation and maintenance are different jobs. In addition, the maintenance of the site does not have a specific amount of work and time. Therefore, it was not included in the competition and rightly so.

As for the domain, there are no requirements for it, it can be anything. There is no need to create a “Buy the best and most expensive domain” type of competition for the participants.

By the number of articles, this is a correct remark. I think we can fix this while the contest is not running.

Hello! We want to participate in this contest. However, the time frame specified for the contest (only 2 weeks) is extremely short. This provides an overwhelming advantage for wiki projects that were created 1-2 months before the start of the contest.

This is not fair to the rest of the community who can and want to do and show their work for contest

Please consider extending the contest period to 8 weeks (until October 21). In this case, you will get more quality work. Thanks!

PS: We have a well-coordinated editorial team and we will be happy to take part in the contest if the time for it is extended

  1. Hello, as an experienced web developer, I claim that it takes several hours to install a wiki engine on a domain. A wiki website can be launched in 1-2 days.

  2. If you saw the contest with a delay, it means that only you were late. You don’t need to apply this to the entire community.

  3. None of the terms of the contests will change after its launch, this is bad practice. Please forget to change the past.

Hi.

This proposal contest was posted 20 days ago. And before that it was discussed for a very long time. It takes a lot of time and effort to create a contest, agree on it and run it. And to postpone the dates even further - as a result, the contests stretch for months.

If you have a team and a desire to participate in the development of the Free TON Wiki, that’s great! The Wiki Subgovernance is already running and I suggest you check it out:

And also in the near future it will be possible to add submissions to this contest: #1 Wiki Renewal Contest [03.–15.09.2020]

I support Mr. First’s proposal. Quality content is a very important aspect of Community development. It is good that there are groups already working on the wiki, but it is even better to give other users the opportunity to prove themselves. Competition is good in this case.

Dedicated to all teams not yet working on the wiki.

Free TON Wiki Submission

This Free TON Wiki was created by Dmitry bitjudge. You may know me as one of the Initial Members of Free TON Wiki and Wiki team lead.

Benefits

The Free TON Wiki was created in full accordance with the terms of the contest and more. This Wiki continues to grow and evolve right now, and benefits the entire Free TON community.

This wiki is powered by the freeton.wiki domain, which was first registered by me and then donated to Free TON.

Functionally complete and working website

Evaluation criteria: Functionally complete and working website using modern Wiki engine with the ability to register users, add and edit articles.

The Free TON Wiki website is powered by the Dokuwiki engine, which is modern, lightweight, and fast and constantly evolving (last stable release was July 29, 2020).

The Dokuwiki engine has excellent Wiki functionality and is almost in no way inferior to the most famous Mediawiki engine on which Wikipedia runs (comparison). Additional features in Dokuwiki can be added using plugins.

Of course, the existing website has full functionality for registering users with a personal account, assigning rights for users, adding and editing articles, and much more. A basic list of features can be found here.

The configuration of the deployed Free TON Wiki has been posted on Github.

In addition, the Free TON Wiki Sandbox was deployed to allow community members to conduct technical experiments, test new features, and more.

Multilingual support with the ability to add new languages

Evaluation criteria: Multilingual support with the ability to add new languages

The Free TON Wiki supports over 50 languages (see Dokuwiki Features). The amazing feature of the engine is that it adds a new language instantly.

Here’s an example: A while ago, the community asked to add Turkish to the Wiki. This was done in the admin panel in minutes. And about half an hour later, a TOC page in Turkish appeared on the Wiki!

Design in the style of Free TON

Evaluation criteria: Design in the style of Free TON

First of all, I created the Free TON Wiki logo, which you can find at the top of this document. The logo is a pure Free TON crystal, in the center of which is the classic and well-recognized letter W, which can be seen on the Wikipedia logo.

There are several versions of the logo in inverse colors, as well as a slightly modified “international” version, to which a stylized globe has been added (see the avatar in the Wiki International chat).

The rest of the Free TON Wiki website design uses the classic Free TON crystal blue.

Elaborate a thoughtful structure for Wiki content

Evaluation criteria: Elaborate a thoughtful structure for Wiki content to meet Free TON goals

The structure of a Wiki is a table of contents for sections, subsections, and a hierarchy of articles that together form user-friendly navigation and make it easy to navigate within the Wiki.

The structure is a living thing and must adapt to the needs of the community. However, immediately after the creation of the website, it was necessary to create some basic structure that can be developed further. Of course, it was done.

These pages with the basic structure have already become history because so far there are so many new materials on the Wiki and the structure has undergone many changes.

However, the initial work can be seen in past page revisions. Here is one example of a start page revision for August 1, 2020. And here is a list of all the revisions of the start page (scroll to the beginning).

Adding articles to Wiki

Evaluation criteria: Adding articles to Wiki. Minimum 25 articles. More is better.

At the time of this submission, the Wiki was 124 pages long, including articles and tables of contents pages. The current number of pages can be seen here.

I would like to add with great gratitude that most of this content was created by the community.

At the time of launch, the Wiki contained about 30 pages. The exact number of pages in the first version of the Wiki is now impossible to determine because the content has changed many times, during which articles were created, supplemented, moved, merged, cut, etc.

Resume

It can be argued for certain that the requirements of the competition were met in full and exceeded many times.

Good day! My name is Arthur. I was previously a member of the News & Blog group, but a little later I realized that Vicky is very interesting to me. Having looked at the work of Mikhail and Dmitry, I realized that I could not work as smoothly and in timing as they did, so I would like to offer an alternative wiki for those who write for the soul, but with love about the project.

Anyone who wants to take part in the independent Wikipedia project Free TON welcome to https://thefreeton.info

This wiki supports multiple languages. What kind? Only the author who wants to write decides. As in the main Wikipedia, the functionality of MediaWiki allows it.

At the moment there are more than 30 articles in the free Wikipedia and they will be supplemented by free authors.

If the community is very active, then it will be possible to create a chat for the soul.

Respectfully,

Arthur.
Добрый день! Меня зовут Артур. Ранее я участвовал в группе News&Blog, но чуть позже понял, что Вики мне очень интересно. Посмотрев работу Михаила и Дмитрия, я понял, что не смогу работать также слаженно и по таймингу как они, поэтому я хотел бы предложить альтернативный вариант вики для тех, кто пишет для души, но с любовью о проекте.

Всем кто хочет принять участие в независимом проекте Википедии Free TON милости прошу https://thefreeton.info

Эта Вики поддерживает несколько языков. Какие? Решает только автор, который захочет писать. Как и в основной Википедии функционала МедиаВики это позволяет.

На данный момент в свободной Википедии больше 30 статей и они будут пополняться свободными авторами.

Если сообщество будет очень активным, то можно будет создать чат для души.

С уважением,

Артур.

С вами конкурировать не планирую. Вики создаю чисто для души (не только своей), чтобы можно было писать всецело об экосистеме TON.
