New year, new wiki!

I am very pleased to announce the new CyanogenMod Wiki page to the public today. Fattire and myself spent many hours creating what we hope will be a very useful tool for our members and contributers.

In addition to the device/install guide pages, we have documented a lot of commonly asked questions and processes in the hopes that more people can get involved in the CyanogenMod project than ever before. Our favorite part of the new wiki system is that its open to the public to amend, correct if need be, and expand! Android moves very quickly and guides quickly become out of date or obsolete.

One of the biggest challenges we faced was making sure everything is up to date and still valid. That is where our members who may not be programmers but still want to help with the CyanogenMod project now can contribute! If you see a mistake, or have a well documented update, or simply want to add a new device(MUST be officially supported on get.cm), you are free to do so now without much trouble. The new wiki is fully built off templates and we invite you to please read the documentation on how to contribute to the wiki here: http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/index.php?title=Documentation. The biggest takeaway from this is, edit the template, not the page itself. Edits to a template will update LOTS of pages at once so it's important to make sure what you change makes sense everywhere the template is used. There are plenty of helpful examples to get you started. There is also a page for suggestions/updates if you do not feel comfortable editing pages yourself so please make use of that as well.

If you want to have a more active role in maintaining a particular OEM on the Wiki, say you're really into Motorola devices and want to volunteer to keep track of those devices, please get in contact with us. You can find myself (utkanos) or fattire in #cm-wiki on Freenode so feel free to join and reach out to us. This channel can also be used to notify us of anything else you wish to regarding the wiki.

So in closing, we're pleased to present the new CyanogenMod wiki, just in time for a great new year of Android development:

We hope you enjoy using the new system and we're excited to see how the community will grow as a result of this free exchange of knowledge and information.
