This is the Home Page of the ICCFA Wiki, an ongoing collaborative project open to everyone involved in the cemetery, cremation and funeral service industry.
The function of a wiki is to allow multiple writers to contribute to a document while retaining a history of revisions which can be reversed if future readers or editors deem it necessary.
At present, because the ICCFA Wiki is so new, most of the entries here are "stubs," or starter material around which a more detailed article can be written as more writers chime in and make additions and corrections.
The best way to quickly see how a wiki works is to visit the Wikipedia Web site at http://wikipedia.org
Check out an article that interests you, and click the "Edit This Page" tab on top and you will get a sense of how to contribute. In fact, you might look at one of the relatively sparse articles on "mausoleum" or "cemetery" and make an addition or correction.
Another good resource is this article by the tech education company O'Reilly: http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/a/network/2006/07/07/what-is-a-wiki.html
It's extremely easy to get started contributing to the ICCFA Wiki. You do not need to be an ICCFA member, you simple need to create an account here with a username and password:
Then, when you navigate back to the ICCFA Wiki pages, you will notice that the articles all have an "Edit" tab just beneath the title. Click on that and you will see you are now able to edit and add text.
Do not be intimidated by the "computer code" with the text. The only codes we are really using are double brackets like this, cemetery, (you'll need to be logged in and click "Edit" above to see this code) which indicate a term that is already the subject of an article, or which you believe SHOULD be the subject of an article, and Web addresses typed in verbatim like the ones above. Don't worry: If you mess it up an editor can fix it later.
Once you are logged in, you can click on the link below to start a new ICCFA Wiki entry.
Thanks for visiting and we look forward to your participation in the ICCFA Wiki.
