Internet Manifesto


Today our medias are important. In times with social Networks, Search Machines and Youtube we must remind our Life. Some Geeks has defined a new manifesto with 17 Declarations.

  • The Internet is different.
  • The Internet is a pocket-sized media empire.
  • The Internet is our society is the Internet.
  • The freedom of the Internet is inviolable.
  • The Internet is the victory of information.
  • The Internet changes improves journalism.
  • The net requires networking.
  • Links reward, citations adorn.
  • The Internet is the new venue for political discourse.
  • Today’s freedom of the press means freedom of opinion.
  • More is more – there is no such thing as too much information.
  • Tradition is not a business model.
  • Copyright becomes a civic duty on the Internet.
  • The Internet has many currencies.
  • What’s on the net stays on the net.
  • Quality remains the most important quality.
  • All for all.

Howto: How to create an Userpage


Novell account
==============
First of all, in order to access the forums, build service, features, and bugzilla information a Novell user account must be created.  To create an account visit: https://secure-www.novell.com/selfreg/jsp/createOpenSuseAccount.jsp?target=http://www.opensuse.org and fill out the Form.

User page
=========
Once you have completed logging in, your user name will be displayed at the top right of the page.
Clicking on your user name will display your user page.  Since you have not edited your page yet, it should be relatively empty.

To edit your user page click on „edit“.  A „Wiki“ text entry box will be displayed, allowing you to enter information you would like to share about yourself, such as, your Name, email address, or instant messenger information.

Picture uploading
=================
If you would like to add a picture of yourself, navigate to http://en.opensuse.org/Special:Upload and select a file you wish to upload.  Take note of the statement:

„To include the image in a page, use a link in the form [[Image:file.jpg]], [[Image:file.png|alt text]] or [[Media:file.ogg]] for directly linking to the file.“

This statement describes how to link/bind the freshly uploaded picture to your user page.

Bind your picture to your page by navigating back to your user page and clicking edit.  Click the „Embedded Image“ icon.  If you are not sure which icon is the „Embedded Image“ icon, hover your mouse over the various icons to display a description of each.

Once you have clicked the correct icon, the text: [[Image:file.jpg]] will be displayed in the „Wiki“ text box.  change the file name to the name of the picture you just uploaded.
