Reading the Järviwiki pages requires no registration. The easiest way of finding information is to enter the keyword (e.g. the name of a lake) in the search field. The main menu on the left offers quick access to the most significant content. On the main page, you find lake-related news and the most recent observation data.
After you have registered and your e-mail address has been verified, you can log in and start contributing.
To make changes to a page's sub header and the text below, click the Edit link on the right (near the headline). You can also go to the Edit tab and edit the entire page. Edit tracking is done in the common wiki style, which is also used by e.g. Wikipedia. For more detailed information and instructions, we recommend Wikipedia's introduction and tutorial.
Adding events, observation sites and objects
If you want to add events, observations, photos or other content pertaining to a specific location, you must first create that site by clicking "Add a new" under the map of the lake in question.
After creating the site, you can click the Add/Edit links in the right column to add events, observations, photos and links.
