This article outlines some editing guidelines to be used in order to maintain this structure of the Prediction Markets wiki.

Adding a new market

To add a new market page follow the following steps:

  1. Check the Markets list to make sure that your market does not already exist. If it does you can update the entry for this market, or add comments to its discussion page.
  2. If the market does not exist create a new page for this market by performing a search for the name of the market. As the page does not exist, you will be prompted to create one by clicking on the RED non-existing page name.
  3. At the bottom of your page you should add a list of categories that you would like to assign to the page. You must add the category Markets, so that your market will appear on the alphabetical list of all markets.
  4. Preview your entry before saving. Make sure that a link to an existing page does not appear in RED, meaning that you probably misspelled its name.
  5. once you save the new page, your market will automatically appear in all the pages of the categories which you assigned to your market.

You can use any of the existing market pages as an example. Just go to the edit tab.

Adding a new market attribute

To add a new market attribute follow the following steps:

  1. Check the market attributes list to make sure that the new attribute, or a similar one, does not already exist. If it does use its name as a category in your market.
  2. If the attribute does not exist, enter in you market a link to this non-existing attribute. Note that the attribute name should be preceded by :Category: in order to make it a wiki category. Once you save the market page, the link to the attribute will appear in red. You can then go to the attribute page and edit it.
  3. You must add the category "Market properties" to the attribute page, so that it will appear on the alphabetical list of all market attributes.
  4. Preview your entry before saving. Make sure a link to an existing page does not appear in RED, meaning that you probably misspelled its name.
  5. once you save the new page, your attribute will be added automatically to the market attributes list
