Instructions to sign up to the wiki

At this time there are actually two J wikis. There is a Blue J wiki which is the working wiki and the Yellow J wiki which is our prototype for collecting information and trying out formats. If you have not been signed up for the wiki before you will need to sign up to them separately. We will be working the Yellow J wiki for this project.

For more information about editing the wiki you can click here, but to participate in the categorization project the extra information is really not necessary because the editing is minimal.
