We need help!

The Archives of Alta Plana are made in a way everybody can contribute to make it bigger and better. In the Lighted World the system used by Alta Plana is called a wiki. In a wiki all pages can be edited by everyone without loosing the old versions. A wiki used special syntax to make layout options more easier. You can find more info about the wiki syntax on this page.

You can edit pages by clicking on the edit button below each article (after you register and login). When you change something don't forget to save the page. If you just made a small change to the page, e.g. a spelling correction. Tick the “minor edition” button before you save.


To keep the articles structured we need some conventions:


Please use English as the language.

Page names

Make sure page names can be sorted alphabetical. Start with name, followed by dash (-), followed by sure name. E.g.


Use also an dash (-) where you need a space. e.g.


Page titles

Page titles should follow the page name convention. So start with the name, followed by a comma, followed by the surename. E.g. krantz-virginie will become Krantz, Virginie .

Don't start with The, La, La, Les but add them at the end between brackets. E.g.

Mystere d'Urbicande (Le)

Page content

After the page title you can add all the information you want. Always try to add a picture. You can make subsections with a lower header.


Try to end the page with a tag. The tag is a category what this page belongs to.
