Scope of this page

The scope of this page is to document how you might create different types of information within this wiki.

This wiki makes use of the Semantic Media Wiki Extension so it allows to organize information using semantic features. The semantic features allow the aggregation of information within the wiki on several pages. In order to get the aggregation working properly there are some things you should consider during site creation.

Types of wiki pages

We provide several types of wiki pages. Sites not yet documented within this documentation should not be created yet as the templates are still work in progress. If you create pages with incomplete or not yet existing templates you might cause problems that might imply that your information will not be found properly. The orga-team might miss information that might be relevant for planning.

All protected templates, forms and properties within this wiki are managed by the wiki administrators. Please do not create other templates extending the existing ones. If you have enhancements for any of the existing templates, use the discussion page so that a wiki-admin can implement your ideas. You should not create templates like Person2, Project3 and so on, as they will cause trouble on changes of the original templates or forms. If you wanna be part of the wiki team, please contact us!

Managing your userpage

Your userpage should be automatically generated during your signup for wiki access. The information requested by the signup form below the username/password-Box is published on your users wiki page.

You can always edit the information within the page by using "Edit" on your userpage.

After adding Projects or Assemblies to your userpage you should occur in the list of users on the pages. The mediawiki might need some time to update the semantics cache. If you have used the autocompletion and the value has been added correctly, you just have to be patient.

Please do not add any further categories to your userpage. For aggregations you might use the information available via semantics.


This section is basically for those of you that live in Hamburg and are able to provide some free space for other hackers on a spare bed, couch or an airbed. Those people should scroll down in the form while editing their userpage and click "Add another" within the couchsurfing section.

There you can fill in the appropriate information to announce your couchsurfing places within the list of couchsurfing places on Couchsurfing. If you have multiple places on different location you can also add multiple entries. Please also insert appropriate contact information so persons potentially interested can contact you.

There is also an input field within the couchsurfing form that allows you to tell people that all places are taken. If the number of free places is the same as the taken places, your couchsurfing option will be shown with 0 places free in the couchsurfing table.
