Yog-Sothoth.com has a Wiki page dedicated to:
The CthulhuWiki is an information resource relating to Jazz Age Horror and Weird Fiction writer H.P. Lovecraft and works inspired by his writings, including the Cthulhu Mythos and Lovecraftian games and media.
The primary focus is on the role-playing game material associate with Lovecraft and his writings (The Call of Cthulhu RPG, Trail of Cthulhu, etc.) but covers wider Lovecraftian topics as well.
As such a rarefied topic we rely on our members to add information to the Wiki and would greatly appreciate your help expanding the Wiki's content base. For a general introduction, consult the tutorial: http://yog-sothoth.c...p/Tutorial:Main and Help section: https://www.mediawik...i/Help:Contents

Here is some very sound advice from one of our most prolific editors Shimmin Beg:
Bare-bones is better than nothing. Even if you don't have time to write a rich, detailed analysis of a scenario, putting up the basic details will help, and can be fleshed out later. Some sections are broadly more important than others - knowing the authors, basic premise and setting of a scenario will help people to identify that scenario they can't remember, or to decide whether it sounds suitable for their game. Lists of handouts are nice, but less crucial.
Don't be over-ambitious! I had a good streak during a quiet phase of a previous job, when I could sit around reading PDFs and reviewing/wikifying them. It's easier to get disillusioned if you have big goals.
I personally find writing things in a text document, and only uploading them after a read-through, minimises the amount of editing I have to do afterwards. It also minimises the risk of information being lost from broken connections, which is really frustrating - not that it's a specific problem of the wiki, but it can be an issue, especially if you leave an edit window open for a long time and work on it between other tasks.
Be particularly careful with page names. Once you save a page with a name, you'll have no way to change it (it needs mod intervention), so typos here are really crucial. You can create pages by clicking on a red link while logged in, but it's always possible whoever created the link made a typo, and the link text isn't always the same as what it points to.
I'd make a plea for looking carefully through the categories and thinking about which are best to use. Adding all the applicable categories to begin with (which may include new ones) is generally easier than just doing a few in the first place, because there's no way to tell offhand whether a page only has four categories because it doesn't need more, or because there wasn't time to do them all. I learned this through much experience! If you have questions or comments about scenario categories, would you give me a prod? I don't own them or anything, but I did create a lot of them so I have some idea of the thinking behind them, and it's always best if people agree on consistent ways to use things (/librarian). I am also happy to talk about wiki markup.
I personally try to use a tag <!-- written without access to the scenario or detailed reviews --> (I hope that appears in this post...) to indicate when I wrote an entry from limited information, so that future editors will know it needs careful looking-over.
