Some Βοήθεια in English for creating articles in Οὐικιπαιδεία. You don't have to understand all of this before contributing an article!

1. Wp/grc/ Make sure that the title of any page you make begins with these letters, so that it will be grouped with the rest of the ancient Greek articles on the incubator. E.g. Wp/grc/Θάλαττα.

2. The Category. Each article should belong to at least one category. To express that an article belongs to a particular category, add a category statement to the article, such as:

  • For the Δειπνοσοφισταί article in the Λογοτεχνία category:
  • For the Τὰ Μηδικά article in the Ἀρχαία ἱστορία category:
[[Category:Wp/grc/Ἀρχαία ἱστορία|Μηδικα]]
  • For this article in the Οὐικιπαιδεία category:

This statement should be placed at the bottom of the article. Of course, make whatever categories and subcategories you want.

3. The word after the pipe (|). Τhe word after the pipe (in these examples Δειπνοσοφισται, Μηδικα, and Βοηθεια) enables proper alphabetization on the category pages (see 4. below). The title of the page should be given here without definite articles, without accents or breathing marks, and with iota-subscripts written as iota-adscripts.

4. Category pages automatically list all the articles in that category. To access a category page, click on the category statement at the bottom of the page. For example, on this page, click on Wp/grc/Οὐικιπαιδεία below to access the Οὐικιπαιδεία category page. Some other categories in Ancient Greek Wikipedia include:

  • Category:Wp/grc/Λογοτεχνία
  • Category:Wp/grc/Ἀρχαία ἱστορία

All category pages must themselves belong to another category. The top-level categories all belong to the master category called Ancient greek Wikipedia (note peculiar capitalization of greek). I.e. a top-level category page should contain the following line:

[[Category:Ancient greek Wikipedia|nameofpage]]

5. Wiki vocabulary. Some useful wiki-words:

  • Article: ἐγγραφή, -ῆς, ἡ
  • Page: σελίς, -ίδος, ἡ
  • Contribution: συμβολή, -ῆς, ἡ
  • Link: σύνδεσμος, -ου, ὁ
  • External link: ἐξωτερικὸς σύνδεσμος
