Questions and Answers
Most people who visit a Wiki for the first time have a lot of questions about vandalism, disinformation, and other problems endemic to letting anyone in the world re-write your site. We won't go into depth about such concerns here as there has been extensive discussion on these issues at wikis worldwide. For responses to some common objections, see this page at Wikipedia.
The Help pages here at The Louverture Project will likely remain underdeveloped for some time. (Unless someone wants to take this on as a project... hint, hint.) Fortunately, though, TLP runs on MediaWiki software, and there is an extensive collection of help pages posted both at Wikipedia and at WikiMedia. See Help pages at Wikipedia for answers to most editing and usage questions. I'll highlight some of the important issues here, but you should use those pages as your reference for anything not covered here.

Orientation and Navigation
The Louverture Project is part encyclopedia, part narrative, part resource and part archive. There are at least three main ways for the visitor to interact with the site:
- Read the Narrative - The Revolution Will Be Forgotten is a history of the Haitian Revolution. Select a chapter from the Main Page of the wiki and start reading. Links within the narrative will take you to pages of more detail about various topics, whether here at The Louverture Project or elsewhere.
- Browse by Category - The list of categories is also available from the Main Page. Within each category are a growing list of articles about people, events, and concepts having to do with the Haitian Revolution.
- Search the Site - Enter a term in the Search box on the left-hand side of the page, then click "Go" or "Search." "Go" will take you directly to a page, if it exists on the site, while the "Search" button will return a list of all pages containing the search term.
