#REDIRECT [[Main Page]]
This wiki's current primary use is as a compendium of development information for Creative Commons tools.  Start at the [[Developer]] page.
You can always find links to the main parts of the official Creative Commons site in this wiki's heading -- [http://creativecommons.org creativecommons.org], [http://creativecommons.org/find/ Find Content], [http://creativecommons.org/license/ License Content], and [http://creativecommons.org/worldwide/ Creative Commons Worldwide].

=== Register ===
You must register ''and'' confirm (via email) your account in order to edit articles here.
Please use your real name, with spaces, as your user name, e.g., [[User:Mike Linksvayer|Mike Linksvayer]].
Note that your contributions are covered by this site's [[CcWiki:Terms of Use|terms of use]].
=== Edit ===
Some articles may be editable only by administrators. Feel free to make suggestions concerning those articles on their "talk" pages, e.g., [[CcWiki_talk:About|one for this page]]. These and other measures are in place to battle spammers. We apologize for any inconvenience experienced by you the gentle writer, unless you're a spammer.
That said, please '''dive in'''. If you see content that needs to be expanded, fine tuned, is simply missing, you're probably right!  Create and remix, please.
We're running the same wiki software as [http://wikipedia.org Wikipedia]. If you've edited articles there, you should feel comfortable here. All else equal we'll try to follow practices established by the Wikipedia community.
If you're not certain feel free to leave a comment on the relevant article's talk page or ask on [[IRC]] in realtime.

=== Translate ===
This is (in theory, soon in practice), a multilingual wiki.  Follow these steps to translate an article.  For the purposes of illustration, the article is called ''Example Content'' and we will translate the article to Spanish.
* Create a new article called ''Es:Contenido del Ejemplo''.  The contents should be a translation of ''Example Content''.
* To ''Es:Contenido del Ejemplo'' add <nowiki>{{Lang-1|Example Content}}</nowiki>
* To ''Example Content'' add <nowiki>{{Lang-1|Es:Contenido del Ejemplo}}</nowiki>
A box appear in each article listing the languages the article is available in.  If an article is available more than two languages, use the appropriate template, e.g., Lang-2 for three languages, Lang-3 for four, etc.
''Es:'' is special in the translated article name.  It is the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ISO_639_codes language code] for Spanish, followed by '':''.  If translating for another language, use the appropriate language code, e.g., ''Ja'' for Japanese (use alpha-2 if available).
Eventually you'll be able to search for articles only in language(s) you specifiy (technically because MediaWiki can treat a prefix before '':'' as a separate namespace).
