Talk:Main Page

From Mesh

Welcome the discussion area for this page

This is a space for talking about the wiki (what should be found on here, how the text can be clearer and how the navigation can be more user-friendly) and troubleshooting any problems you're having.

Wiki Hackathon

On the 11th of each month we meet on Zoom for a wiki hackathon. Email for details on how to join us.

How to add to the discussion

1) Log in to your account and select the 'Edit' version of this page, (found next to 'Read' at the top of the page).

2) In the editable text box (editing area), add your comment or query at the very bottom of the page. Give it a title to help others find it, for example "A suggestion for the main page" or "help needed to add images". You can add a line break between your title and your comment so it's easier for others to read. To make your comment even easier to trace, highlight your title and choose 'Level 5' of the 'headings' from this menu at the top of the editable area:

3) You can also add to an ongoing conversation - scroll through the editing area until you reach the conversation you want to add to. Type your comment at the bottom of this conversation.

4) To make your comment traceable to you, highlight your text and select the signature button at the top of the page. This creates a signature and timestamp of when you made the comment, and makes it easier for conversations to take place between different users.

5) When you're happy with your comment you can preview it using the button at the bottom of the page. And when you're happy with the preview, 'save changes'.

Enjoy! If you're feeling very stuck and want to speak directly to the caretaker, email Esther at (account checked every monday).

1) Content


“A mesh network connects directly, dynamically and non-hierarchically to as many other nodes as possible and cooperate with one another to efficiently route data. Mesh networks dynamically self-organise and self-configure." A mesh has no centre and is made up of multiple strands to create a stronger whole!

Rather than prescribing universal truths on how to “succeed” in the art world, let’s teach each other how to create our own, re-think and re-organise. Because the most important art-world is the one that suits your needs, not the other way around.

Think about all the things you do to sustain a practice - i.e life.The meals, meet-ups, texts, experiences, van-hires, budgets, emails, friendships, notes, memes, adventures, “non-making” periods and day-jobs. The choices you make and what you learn from these experiences can all be part of your art-world and practice. It all matters and YOU ARE IN IT ALREADY.

This site is a place to share and find survival tools and life hacks to navigate your world better. Because it is a wiki, it allows you to contribute anything you want around this specific purpose. (It’s OK if it get’s messy and disorganised - life does too). Just make sure it complies with our aims and ethos.

--Esther McManus (talk) 11:54, 9 May 2020 (UTC)(an attempt to make a comment using signature/timestamp) - I agree with much of this, but inclined to think that a messy and disorganised site will end up being less useful and accessible. I wonder if it might be better to develop spaces for discussing/improving navigation instead? The site will certainly grow and change as more people use it. Is there a balance that can be struck between acknowledging that life and collaborations are messy, but still aspiring for the best accessibility we can manage, as a collective?
