Un aspect particulièrement intéressant et important de Wikimini réside dans la possibilité de '''créer des liens entre les articles''', c'est à dire les lier entre eux. Cela consiste à intégrer, au sein du texte, et sur quelques mots bien choisis, des liens vers d'autres articles susceptibles d'intéresser le lecteur. {{Boîte déroulante|titre=Voir un exemple|contenu=

Imagine, for example, reading the following text :
Imaginez, par exemple, que vous lisiez le texte suivant :
 
   
  +
''Foxes are mammals belonging to the family of Canidae.''
''Le renard est un mammifère appartenant à la famille des canidés.''
 
   
Dans cette phrase, il pourrait être intéressant de créer un lien vers l'article "'''Mammifère'''" et un autre vers l'article "'''Canidé'''", ce qui donnerait :
+
In this sentence, it could be interesting to add a link towards the "'''Mammal'''" article and another towards the "'''Canidae'''" article, wich would result in :
   
''Le renard est un [[Mammifère|mammifère]] appartenant à la famille des [[Canidé|canidés]].''
+
''Foxes are [[Mammal|mammals]] belonging to the family of [[Canidae]].''
   
Ainsi, le lecteur qui le souhaite peut directement accéder aux articles "Mammifère" et "Canidé" depuis l'article qu'il est en train de lire.}}

This way, readers can directly access the articles "Mammal" and "Canidae" from the article they're reading.}}

This possiblility is not used enough by some contributors. Don't hesitate to add links to articles that don't have any yet. ([[Help:Create links|How to do it?]])
Cette possibilité est peu mise à profit par certains contributeurs. N'hésitez donc pas à créer vous-même des liens dans les articles qui n'en possèderaient point. ([[Aide:Créer des liens|Comment faire?]])

Bg-pin.gif This page explains to adults and older adolescents how they can get involved in the project. If you're looking for technical support, consult the main help page.

Children all over the world unite their efforts ans share their knowledge to build their own encyclopedia. To do it, they need help from their elders.

As an "grown-up", you can help them in this beautiful collective adventure!
Adults can help Wikiminauts

Reread and correct articles

Cubes-lettres-abc.jpg
The point is not to write in the children's place. But if you see a problem in a page, you can edit it.

You can, for example :

  • correct english mistakes (spelling, grammar, punctuation, etc.) ;
  • make sure typographical rules are followed (capital letters, spaces before and/or after punctuation marks, etc.) ;
  • reformulate wrong or inexact informations ;
  • add elements to facilitate reading an unclear article ;
  • organize a long article by adding subtitles before some paragraphs, or even entirely reorganizing the article ;
  • add a short introduction for articles that don't have one yet (a regular introduction consists in 1 or 2 phrases to sum up key elements – ex. : "Neil Armstrong was an American astronaut born on the 5th of August 1930 in Wapakoneta and who died on the 25th of August 2012 in Columbus. He is best known for being the first man to walk on the Moon.")
  • etc.

Watch recent modifications

A special page registers all recent activities in Wikimini and reports recent changes added to the encyclopedia :

This page allows you to keep an eye on the site's activity and to spot eventual inappropriate content.

Other histories are also available, you can even follow them. (Learn more).
