30/4/21: WikiMSK has been upgraded to version 1.35 of MediaWiki. MediaWiki is the software used to run the website, the same software used by Wikipedia and countless other wikis. Other than security updates, the big news with this version is that WikiMSK now has Visual Editor. This is a "visual" way of editing articles and is far more user friendly than the older complex annotation system. You can read how to use it here. The older editor is still available to use for more granular editing control.
