What is it?
A WikiZenMaster is someone who makes format changes to make the wiki more visually appealing.
(WikiZenMaster is sometimes referred to as a WikiFairy.)
Like a WikiGnome, a WikiZenMaster will add value to content on a wiki by making it a desirable tool to use, making content clearer and easier to use, and maintaining high standards of organization and format on the wiki.
A WikiZenMaster might
- Add titles or section headings to better organize pages.
- Add images or diagrams to illustrate content on a wiki page or help clarify a complex process, etc.
- Add images of the covers of books listed in the bibliography.
- Add images of the various contributors to a wiki.
- Separate paragraphs in order to make texts easier to read.
