About Pepijn Uitterhoeve
I'm Pepijn, a veteran Utopia player (and gamer in general). I intend to write my master thesis on Utopia, and focus mainly on the cooperative aspects. Some more stuff about me may be found here: http://peppie.wordpress.com/about/


I wanted to make a substantial wikipedia contribution and found out that there is no Dutch description about the online webgame Utopia.

So I wrote one here –> http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Utopia_%28online_spel%29 and subsequently fucked up the URL.

Oh well.

This was my first time editing a wiki, so I didn’t really know what to expect. Turns out it’s not that hard, although it uses a different code than forumposts it still felt easy enough to use.

I read a number of the instructions and tips; I aimed to describe some of the very basic stuff there is to know about Utopia. I left the detail to others, mainly because of a lack of time to write a large elaborate piece, but also because I didn’t want to risk comprimising the objectivity of the article, seeing as I am a Utopian player and have my own opinions about the game, and they start to shine through quickly once you get past the basics. (in my experience)
I used bits of the english article as inspiration, though mainly searched it and other wikis to learn about the standard structure/layout that people use to write wikis. Took me a while to figure out that the table of content is generated automagically, though.
Anyway, I think it’s a fascinating piece of technology!
