  • Question

  • Is it possible for a Wiki contributor to add his/her name to the tags list? If yes, in which cases?

    Thanks.

  • Yes, you can add tags to articles you do not own (or did not contribute to).

    Keep in mind, if you add a tag, you become latest contributor to that article (until next change).
    The tags are rather meant for quick-search.

    It depends what you are trying to achieve.
    Would you like to make a list of articles you contribute to?

    You can use your name (check back on the tag list of your enterprise library article ;)  ).
    But you could consider using a smaller tag if it's for search purposes...

    Kind regards,
    Peter

  • Yes, you can add tags to the taglist.

    You can do that for any Wiki article, but use it with care.
    Avoid polution.

    Adding a personal tag to your wiki articles is a easy and quick way of getting an overview of your articles...

    Just as an example: click here. ;)

    HTH, Kind regards,
    Peter

  • If I've understood, I can add my name to a Wiki article only if I was the author or the creator of that article (not if I contribute to someone else's article or edit a blank stub page created by someone): right?

    Thank you.

  • What exactly are you refering to?

    Are you looking at the Wiki page details that are displayed on the right side?
    This is updated automatically when creating/updating a Wiki page.
    This cannot be edited (unless your administrator/moderator).

    Because your initial question was about the tags (which can be edited).

    Kind regards,
    Peter

  • OK, may be I've asked my question in a not very clear way.

    Can I always add my name to the tags list at the bottom of a Wiki article I've contributed to or only when I'm the creator or the author of an article for the first time?
    For example, in these days I've contributed to some articles that were created by someone else (some of those articles were stub pages and I was the first contributor creating the content for those pages): in this case, can I add my name to the tag list or only the first contributor that created the page can add his/her name to the tags list?
    Take a look at the page at http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/enterprise-library.aspx: I'm not the creator of that page (as you can see in the right side), but it was a stub page and I've created the first contents in the page.
    Another example is the page at http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/web-platform-installer.aspx: as you can see in the "Credit" section, the content was originally written by me.

    I thought it could have been be a Code of Conduct matter: I don't want to be incorrect and so I've asked the question.

    Thanks again.
