External Linking

Some people heavily link to web pages outside the wiki, and this often makes sense. After all, it's a big web out there, and there's absolutely no sense trying to recreate it all here. However, the wiki presents one huge benefit: having content here allows a forum of contribution and relative stability (as opposed to changing external URLs) with a unified feel. This is a Wiki:Good Thing. External links are good to kickstart a particular piece of content on the wiki.

As a suggested course of action:

  • Make Wiki page as a starting point
  • Build the foundations for the page
  • Link as many resources as you can so that others can keep building.
  • Reproduce the useful information from the external links.
  • Keep external links to give credit where due..
