To invite others to participate in your wiki, your homepage should be welcoming others. If your wiki requires a password for others to create and edit pages, you should let others know how to contact you in order to learn the password.

When first joining an existing wiki, perhaps the first thing one must realize is that a wiki is an online community. Therefore, the polite thing to do would be to introduce oneself to said community.

The creation and future ongoing editing of a personal page is one way to let other wiki users and outside readers know who you are, your purpose for participating on the wiki, and anything else you wish to add to your personal page. Keep the potential audience in mind when deciding what to put on your personal page. Logically, you should be more wary of posting identifying information on a public wiki than you would on an "invite only" wiki.

A great approach to GettingStarted on a wiki would be to learn how to use the wiki. This includes everything from editing pages and entering code to wiki etiquette. When it comes to the technical aspects, you may want to spend some time practicing editing pages in a SandBox.
