"Page incubation" involves placing an article in this area to allow collaboration, where the article is not yet ready to be placed in the main part of the Appropedia wiki.

If an article is "under construction" to the point where it makes little sense to reader, or has serious inaccuracies, or offers no value to the reader, then it is probably best to move it to the incubator.

How to use the incubator[edit | edit source]

Create an article in the incubator[edit | edit source]

Enter the page title in the relevant box to create a page of the specified type:

{{#forminput:form=Project|button text=Create project page}} {{#forminput:form=Device|button text=Create device page}} {{#forminput:form=Organization|button text=Create organization page}} {{#forminput:form=Person|button text=Create biography}}

Moving to the incubator[edit | edit source]

Any "autoconfirmed" editor (one who has been registered for a few days and made a few edits) may move an article to the incubator. Just click the "Move" tab and add "Appropedia:Incubator/" at the beginning of the name. (You just need to have "autoconfirmed" status, meaning you've been registered for a few days and have made a few edits.)

(Tip: using "A:Incubator/" has the same effect and saves typing - "A:" is an alias for "Appropedia:" in pagenames in this wiki.)

An alternative is userfication, especially where a single editor has worked on the article.

My article is here - now what?[edit | edit source]

If you want feedback on an article, you'll need to ask people for the feedback, on or off the wiki, so that they know the page is here. (Also, don't assume that everyone you ask will actually give you feedback. Ask around.)
