What is OC RobotX Wiki?

OC RobotX Wiki is a WSU/OC Engineering Club Information repository making available public domain and freely-licensed club content (images, sound and video clips) to students and the public.

It acts as a common repository for the Engineering Club project RobotX'. The repository is created and maintained by WSU and OC Student volunteers. The scope of Wiki is set out on the project scope pages.

OC RobotX Wiki uses the same wiki-technology as Wikipedia and every registered user can edit it.
You DO NOT have to be an Engineering Student to Contribute!
Launched on 15 Novermber, 2019, RobotX Wiki currently contains 96 files and 33 media collections. More background information about the RobotX Wiki project itself can be found in the General disclaimer.

Unlike traditional media repositories, RobotX Wiki is free. Registered users are allowed to copy, use and modify any files here freely as long as they follow the terms specified by the WSU/OC Engineering Clubs; this often means crediting the source and author(s) appropriately and releasing copies/improvements under the same freedom to others. The license conditions of each individual media file can be found on their description page.


You can improve OC RobotX Wiki most if you contribute what you can do best:

Contribute your work

If you're a good photographer, don't hesitate to contribute your valuable images. If you're a good designer, look which diagrams and animations are badly needed.

Contribute your skills

However you do not need to upload your own files. There is plenty of other very important work to do:

Contribute your time

You even do not need to be an artist or good at writing help texts. If you feel at home with creating order from chaos, then we could use your helping hand!

Our first steps help file and our FAQ will help you a lot after registration. They explain how to customize the interface (for example the language), how to upload files and our basic licensing policy. You don't need technical skills in order to contribute here.

Files on OC RobotX Wiki are organized in categories and galleries. An overview of the categories we use is available on the Main Page.

All your uploads are stored in your personal gallery. Please sign your name on Talk pages by typing ~~~~. If you're copying files from another project, be sure to use the CommonsHelper.

Additional services and software

If you want to upload large numbers of images, the program VicuñaUploader or Commonist will be helpful. If you need specific information on tools for viewing or editing our content please see the software page and tools page.

We hope that you will enjoy it here and that you will have fun.
