The Changeringing Wiki

Welcome to the Changeringing Wiki, an online community encyclopedia for change ringers. This wiki has been created to build up an online repository of articles, a definition of technical terms, ringing hints and tips, and answers to frequently asked questions raised on the changeringing email lists. Use the links in the navigation bar on the left to browse the site. You can choose a Random page to look at, select articles from an alphabetical list (All pages), or use the search box.

Only a few articles are available at present, but it is hoped to build up the content quite quickly as the intention is to copy all the content across from RingWiki (any help with reformatting it would be greatly appreciated). Once all the content has been copied, RingWiki will be removed. New contributions here are also very welcome.

Look at the following for some examples of the improved presentation, noting that pages highlighted in red are still be be added.

Also, if you see any errors, or want to add to or improve any pages, please edit them so that the quality and depth of content improves over time.

If you need help please see the Help page for more infomation about editing pages. If you need ideas, go to Wanted Pages and if you would like something written, create a new page with no content.
