Forums: Index > Watercooler > Some "Professional Help"?



No double entendre's in the subject of this forum---just drawing attention to a new Wiki that's obviously paying to have somone set things up. If you are getting paid for doing this I guess that sort of makes you a professional?

At anyrate, the "Pushing Daisies" wiki is apparently being set up to tie into a forthcoming TV show. Can't say I found the premise especially interesting/"likely to survive", but who knows. You might want to check out the FAQs page because it looks to be well done, and we might find something useful there to incorporate here---free professional help, as it were.

It is possible to do some really fancy things, but the some of those cool things require that you muck with the wiki settings to allow certain data types. For example, flash objects work just fine using the wikimedia engine, and they really aren't hard to manipulate/ a lot of them are boilerplate that you can just plug your own data into.
A bit off topic, but when I first read your note title, I thought that it regarded professionals inputing stuff onto genealogy sites. Paying someone to do this seems to me to miss the point, but just the same, I suppose some busy folks would pay to see what an experienced genealogist would come up with/ pay them to publish old photos/ family tree onto the web/ permanent genealogy site like this one. I wonder if such clients would pay more than $1.98 per hour? ~ Phlox 20:29, 15 September 2007 (UTC)
