Training assignments

Creating your own profile

  1. Add user page to the SEG Wiki
    1. To access your user page, first make sure to login to SEG's single sign-on system (SSO) using your login credentials
    2. Then, visit your user page (click on Create on top right)
    3. Add your own personal information under each category
    4. For a strong example of a user page, check out the user page of Elizabeth Warren, journals production editor for GEOPHYSICS and Interpretation.
  2. Add a sandbox — add [[/Sandbox/]] to your newly created user page, save page and then click on the red link that appears. Try some editing - you can do anything you like here and it does not impact the content on the main wiki.
  3. To add additional sandboxes, change the name of the pages (no need to delete the original Sandbox page). For example, [[/Test 2/]], [[/AVO test/]], and so forth.

Information can include:

  • Companies and professional affiliations
  • Expertise, topics of interest
  • One question about the wiki
  • One new page idea for the wiki
  • A photo (if you'd like)
{{DISPLAYTITLE:My name here}}
Insert introduction - name, job title, contact information.

Knowledge tree

The knowledge tree outlines the main articles under three subjects: geophysics, geology, and petroleum engineering. Please add 1-2 sentences for each item, outlining its role within geosciences. To develop each article further, click the link and begin building or editing the existing page. If you see any major topics missing, please add under its relevant heading.

Create a new article - step by step

  1. Add a link to an existing page OR click on the red link that appears in the result page when you search for the article
    1. Tips for naming articles
  2. Click the red link you just made to start the new page
  3. Write the introduction
  4. Add links liberally, but not willy-nilly
  5. Write the article, adding references as you go
  6. Add See also, External links, and References sections
  7. If it’s a stub, add {{stub}}
  8. Add it to at least one [[Category:Example]]
  9. Add #REDIRECT pages for the new article
  10. Search the wiki and link from related articles
