Userbase に ハウツーや、記事を書こうとしていますか? 心配はいりません、MediaWiki は使いやすいですよ。ですが、始める前に、ちょっと以下のガイドラインを読む時間を取って下さい。このガイドラインは、皆さんに素晴らしい Userbase のエクスペリエンスをもたらすはずです。
1. ライセンスに注意して下さい。あなたが KDE UserBase に投稿した全てのコンテンツは、GNU Free Documentation License と Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike license で配布されます。つまり、基本的にあなたは UserBase のコンテンツを自由に使用・再配布・改変することができ、 原著作者が示した帰属に従い、改変してできた成果物を同じライセンスで配布するという条件の下で提供されます。
2. Respect content from outside sources. When you are using content from other websites, whether it be text, screenshots, or images, please make sure that you have their permission and that you acknowledge their work and probably link to their site. If you have doubts, the Community Working Group can assist in contacting the appropriate parties.
3. Respect the work of others. Particularly if some previous content already exists. Try to follow the pattern if one exists, like in the Applications pages. If you need to make some major changes, please leave a note in the Discussion tab of the page before you make the changes and wait for a reply within a considerable timeframe. You can use the Discussion pages to talk with other contributors. A wiki is designed for collaborative editing, so feel free to talk with each other.
4. Leave short but meaningful Summary when you save changes. This makes it a lot easier to see at a glance what was done. This is specially helpful for those who are monitoring the Recent changes. Of course, we presume that what you write in the Summary actually describes the changes that you did. We all work on the basis of trust and cooperation, so it's best to keep that in mind.
5. できれば登録してログインしてください。 必要なときに連絡を取り易くなりますし、もっと重要なのが、作業の成果がよりわかり易くなることです。ひょっとしたら、次の UserBase のスターはあなたかも知れません。
6. Remember the purpose of UserBase. UserBase is not the correct place to make feature requests or bug reports for KDE software. We have a dedicated bug tracker for that and a BugSquad that helps take care of it (you might be interested in helping out, too). Your wishes or bugs will get heard better there. Be aware of putting in information or steps that apply to specific distributions only. Please put a note that the information applies to that particular distribution. When in doubt, it's best to note it anyway.
8. Last, but definitely not the least, please be guided by the Code of Conduct. The KDE community is built on a culture of collaboration, mutual respect, and trust. These values allow the community to work together in a pleasing and inspiring atmosphere. The Code expresses these values in concrete words. Be sure to give it a good read and keep it mind, whether contributing to UserBase or any area relating to the KDE community.
We look forward to your help in building up KDE's knowledge base for users and we hope that you will enjoy the experience of being an active part in this international family, the KDE Community.
