Blender Manual Wikified


Blender WikiAfter struggling for years with the arcane XML Docbook standard, the Docboard has now switched to Mediawiki (the software that powers to maintain the Blender Manual.

This means that pretty much anyone can contribute to the manual without needing exotic techical skills.

In the first few months, subprojects for German, Spanish, Italian and Finnish translations have already started. I'm hoping that we can invite our Chinese fellow blenderheads soon, too.

Unfortunately, spambots are also very active on Wiki's so the team has had to take some measures to prevent spamming.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.
