ANNOUNCING SPECIAL FEATURE

Writing Encyclopedias in the Sign Languages of the World
2. SignWriting Wiki

The new SignWriting Wiki is open to anyone who wishes to add a category for their sign language, and start writing articles in SignWriting using SignPuddle Online, and then transferring the articles from SignPuddle Online into the SignWriting Wiki for viewing and reading by the general public.
The SignWriting Wiki is the incubator, or the development site, for a future ASL Wikipedia (or Wikipedias in any sign language we hope someday).
The SignWriting Wiki is the test area for our new software, the SignWriting MediaWiki Plugin, by Steve Slevinski. Anyone is welcome to add articles written in SignWriting. Write to the SW List if you need instruction as to how to add your own articles. We hope you will!
In the future, it will be possible to write the SignWriting articles directly in the SignWriting Wiki, without having to transfer them from SignPuddle Online...so there is ongoing software development behind the scenes to make this happen...
But for right now, this is a big "first step" and I want to thank Steve Slevinski, Adam Frost, and Gerard Meijssen from the Language Committee of the Wikimedia Foundation, for their hard work and encouragement...
I hope many of you will enjoy this new toy to play with...the SignWriting Wiki...and we are all here for tech support, so write to the SignWriting List with your technical questions..... it is good for us that you ask questions because this gives us feedback, which is invaluable -
