EyeWiki Talk pages support collaboration on research. Get started with Discussion pages to share findings with your fellow clinicians and solicit collaborators from other sites and academic centers. EyeWiki users can collaborate about trials or topics related to the respective original article pages.

Discussion pages

  • Discussion pages, also known as Talk pages can be used to collaborate on articles by entering comment threads.
  • Comments can be added to Discussion (aka Talk) pages in any wiki page.
  • For example, see the article on Necrotizing fasciitis and its related discussion page.

Steps to add a comment

Tips for formatting comments

  • Begin your comment with a second level subject heading formatted with double equal signs, as: == subject line ==
  • Enter your text under the subject line.
    • Surround text with equal signs for headers.
    • Indent replies with colons (:) at the beginning of the line.
    • Surround existing article titles with double square brackets to create hyperlinks, e.g., [Endophthalmitis]]
  • The most effective comments are clear and direct with minimal formatting
  • Complete your comment with your username signature by typing 4 tilde characters to sign comments, i.e., ~~~~
  • If you want to track comments in the page history, add a Summary comment surrounded by: /* Summary text */

== Data pooling on Episcleritis ==

We have seen quite a few cases of [[Episcleritis]] recently. It looks like the literature hasn't defined how different clinical features impact outcomes. Would anyone like to pool data with my institution? Contact me at [Enter email or phone contact informmation]. Dan.Mummert.AAO (talk) 17:00, September 9, 2020 (PDT)
