A Wiki? What's a "Wiki"?

A "wiki" is a user-editable website. This means that you, the reader, have the ability to edit the page that you're reading. Just click on the "edit" button at the top of the page and go to it!

Wikis allow communities of people to collaborate on projects and information. We'll be able to provide detailed how-tos and technical information for the AMC Eagle. For example, one person might write a simple how-to for changing the valve cover gasket; another person might update the page with a specific Fel-Pro part number for the gasket; another person might take pictures of the process; and somebody else can proofread the page and make minor corrections here and there. The reader will get the benefit of a step-by-step tutorial complete with pictures, without any one person needing to spend a lot of time writing it up.

Getting Started

If you're interested in contributing, the first thing you need to do is read an introduction to editing wikis. Next, create an account and log in.

Uploading Pictures

File uploading has been enabled. If you want to add a picture to a page, you need to upload the image file using the "Upload file" link in the toolbox on the left. Please, do not upload copyrighted images.

Discussing a Page

You can click the "discussion" link above any page to see or add to discussion about that page's contents.
