SpankingArt Wiki: A Community Resource


Readers often ask me what they can do to advance our community. I usually suggest that they support their local blogger with comments, participate in forums, or even consider starting their own blog.

Well, here's another good place for volunteer spankos to apply their talents. The SpankingArt Wiki is an online community resource. It works just like Wikipedia, but as the name suggests, it's dedicated to our favorite subject. How cool is that?

The SpankingArt Wiki holds lots of tremendous information, but there's room for plenty more. That's where we come in. Like any Wiki, this one is only as complete and accurate as the supporting community builds it to be. Every article can be edited and updated by anyone. In addition, it's easy to create new articles.

For the past couple of months, one of my side projects has been to update and clean up the Wiki's spanking blogs page. The list is now pretty complete, although the descriptions are brief and sometimes too generic. It's good, but it's not yet great.

Are there any civic minded members of our community who would like to pitch in and help build this excellent resource? If so, you needn't raise your hand (unless you really feel you must...). You need only visit the site and start contributing. No special computer knowledge is required. Nor is involvement limited to veteran spankos. I learned by looking at the pages that were already in place. I believe you can too.

Every little bit helps!

Bonnie! Are you the one who put my blog on SpankingArt Wiki? I just happened to be looking it over yesterday and when I saw my own blog, I did a double take, 'cause I knew I sure didn't put it there.

Thank you so much!

I have a heck of a time with putting things on that site -- I can never figure out the codes and such. -- Erica

Bonnie,

Awesome job on the blog section, you've done a tremendous service. Thank you also for pointing up this site; I had not yet discovered it.

Everyone - Thank you for your generous words. I think the blogs page is decent, but it could be a lot better if someone with more time and motivation were to help us improve it. In particular, I think a lot of the descriptions are too brief and too general. If you would like to assist, send me an e-mail and I'll share what I know.

Erica - I cannot tell a lie. It did it.

The codes aren't too bad once you get used to them. I started out by copying the techniques used by others. Now it's become mostly intuitive.

OPB - Enjoy!

Paul - Thank you!

Paige - That's a good idea. I've worked only on the blogs page. There is a separate page where web sites are listed.

Reesa - You're very welcome. I wouldn't even think of creating a list of spanking blogs without yours!

LynLass - Thanks! As I said above, the blogs page is good, but a long way from superb.

Hermione - Welcome to MBS! I'm glad you posted a comment.

It is remarkable when you think about the number of spanking-related blogs. This page is a nice resource because it contains not only current blogs, but also those that have become dormant. Many of these blogs have fantastic older posts frozen in time for our reading enjoyment.

The Spanking Art wiki has moved; whatever was recovered from the old site is now reposted to spankingart.org

See www.wikia.com/wiki/Forum:Spanking_art_wiki for details of this incident.
