I do!

We're looking for wiki contributors to fill the college section of the University of Cambridge page in. We really want to get information about the individual colleges up (and anyone to help with the main Cambridge page would be great!) Alternative prospectuses are all well and good, but this can really show how different colleges are.

We all know that academically there isn't a huge amount between colleges (they're all Cambridge after all) so it can be really hard to choose a college. If you can help at all I'd be sooooo grateful - and it's actually really fulfilling/rewarding to do one.

If you'd like to have a go it's really easy. This is the template I've used:
==Location==
==Accommodation==
==Social Spaces==
===Gardens===
===Dining/Hall===
===Bar===
===JCR===
==Library and Computing==
===*** Library===
===Computer Suite===
===Room Connection===
==Welfare==
==Atmosphere==
==Facilities==
==Student-eye view==

That means that if you edit the page, copy that in and then fill in below each section. That formatting will automatically add contents/sections/subsections, you just have to stick the content in.

It'd be great if you're going to do one if you keep to the template (and add any sections you want of course!) You can read up to find out how to add images and sparkly bits. Be honest - good and bad (like I've done for the New Hall site).

You could collaborate... but first come, first served is probably better.
And don't forget there's always
Medicine at Cambridge
and
History at Cambridge
for you to love and cherish.

Aha, knew I was being daft. I had tried this but used the wrong password (hardly ever have to actually *log in * to tsr!)

lol

I'll do one for Sewyn, if no-one else does, but i reckon one of the other TSR selwynites would do a better job than me - i'm not a great frequenter of the bar etc.

That's the whole great thing about the wiki - you can write as much as you want, and other people can edit it later and add their own thoughts

I cant remember my password (I get this computer to log me in automatically...) and when I click the "mail me a new password button, it says "There is no user by the name "Figgetyfig". Check your spelling, or use the form below to create a new user account."

incidentally, below, there is no such form.

Usernames are case-sensitive; try with a lower case initial.

I did use a lower case initial, wiki capitalised it when telling me it didn't exist.
