About the Rotaractor Wiki

Rotaractor Wiki's mission is to be an online historical archive and library of Rotaract around the world. You are invited to participate in this non-profit project powered by dedicated Rotaractors giving back to the future of Rotaract.

Using the Wiki

On Usernames
This wiki is meant as a peer-to-peer resource for Rotaractors around the world. We ask that ALL Wiki users use their actual name for their usernames. Shortening your last name (i.e. JohnS or JohnSm) will also suffice. Numbers are absolutely NOT allowed in usernames! As of August 6, 2013 we have re-enabled manual approval of accounts in order to cut down on spambots and spam pages. As a result, all user accounts must be approved before you can start making contributions. Thank you for your patience and understanding!

Community Guidelines
Since all users are allowed to edit all public pages, it is important that we each treat each other with respect and dignity. Personal attacks, flames, trolling, spam, and other wiki crimes will not be tolerated. For a full list of rules, please consult the Community Guidelines.

Just updated the core wiki system to the latest version. All email notifications are also now being sent out with Sendgrid to help avoid being caught in spam filters. More updates to the wiki system are coming in the next few weeks. The RotaractorWiki moderators will also be at the RI Convention in Sao Paulo this year! See you all there! --Mitty (talk) 17:02, 18 February 2015 (PST)

This summer RotaractorWiki will be turning two years old. This project began as an idea from a breakout session during the 2012 Bangkok Rotaract Preconvention: a universal online library of resources for all things Rotaract and Rotary related. We are thrilled to announce we have surpassed 250,000 site visitors! Our information library continues to grow on a weekly basis, and this encourages us to continue moving forward. Several core system updates have been made to today's patch, which brings us to the latest stable version of MediaWiki. With your help, we will continue to grow this wiki for Rotaract. Keep an eye out for us at the Sydney Rotary International Convention this year if you're going to be there! --Mitty (talk) 13:06, 7 April 2014 (PDT)

Check out our upcoming events page and see if there's one happening near you! --Yvonne (talk) 01:50, 8 January 2014 (PST)

August 6, 2013

Hello, Rotaractors! This is just a quick note to let you know that manual account approval has been re-enabled for all new wiki accounts. This is in light of the huge number of bots and spam that have been appearing in the absence of the manual approval, so thank you for understanding and being patient with us! As long as you are a Rotaractor, you will definitely be approved :) --Yvonne (talk) 13:30, 6 August 2013 (PDT)
