The Burning Wiki Logo
  • We have a new Burning Wiki logo, up in the top left of this Front Page. It's a combination of James Wickhams pictograms for 'Communal Effort' and 'Participation'. James - who holds a Creative Commons right in respect of the images - actually did the artwork for us. Our feeling is that this Logo not only reflects the combination of the two Principles most aligned with this Wiki, but is also symbolic of the energy we hope it creates.
  • Burns around the World are beginning to issue updates regarding COVID-19. If you are interested in the dates or status of worldwide Burns we recommend that you refer to the Burns and Burners page AND check the linked websites and social media pages. Remember that the situation can change rapidly and do your own research before booking travel etc.
  • The annual Burning Man Theme Camp Symposium, due to convene in Reno on March 28 is now going ahead as an online-only event. Although some synergies are lost when people don't have the opportunity to meet face to face, the organisers have noted than the limitations on participation (500 persons) due to the size of the venue no longer apply. No word yet on the Burning Man European Leadership Summit scheduled to start March 30 in Helsinki and move on to Tallin in April.

Contribute to the Burning Wiki

Burning Wiki is similar to, but separate from Wikipedia. Like all Wikis it's a place where all visitors are encouraged to add knowledge, and like all Burn Communities it's a Do-ocracy. One of the quickest ways to getting started creating or editing your own pages is to look at what others have done. To see the code behind each page, select 'Edit Source' once you open a page that you'd like to copy. See Help:Getting started for further information, a quick introduction to wikis, and links to resources to help you.

Step One: Create a Burner Account

Having a registered Burner Account in the Burning Wiki is a good first step. You can create a Playa Name and use that, and even a Burner Profile page for yourself. You can edit this Wiki without a Burner Account, but be warned, the Wiki will then display your computer's IP address as the 'author'. This isn't a good thing for people who like to keep their computer details private. Creating a Burner Account (at the moment) requires that you contact John Mack at the Burning Wiki facebook page. Setup will usually happen within 24 hours.

Example Pages

Template Pages These are available to help you create structure and content in the Burning Wiki. Like all elements of the Burning Wiki you can improve them, and choose whether or not to use them
