How to add a company
1) Start by doing a search. You might find that it has already been added to the directory.
2) If it doesn't already exist, click on the "create a new page" link.
3) You can insert a template to help you get started by clicking on the little Yellowikis target button http://www.yellowikis.org/wiki/skins/common/images/yw_T_button.png on the edit bar.
4) Don't forget to add a country code and at least one industry code.
5) Save it.
Don't worry too much about filling in all the information. If we can get the company name, address, website and an industry code - that would be a great start.
Just the start of the beginning

Data NOT Opinion
The world is full of lovely, good, helpful and nice companies as well as bad, evil, polluting, destructive organizations that make money from killing and hurting people and animals. It is important that both good and bad companies are included in the directory. Yellowikis is neutral.
Real NOT virtual
Yellowikis is aimed at real businesses with some sort of geographic location that can be shared with the world. We are not a directory of websites. If you want to promote your website using a wiki there is a wiki directory especially for you called AboutUs. Any websites without a physical address that get added to Yellowikis will have their URL pinged over to AboutUs and (after a warning) they get removed from Yellowikis.
- The AboutUs wiki is here: www.aboutus.org
- Yellowikis has a page on AboutUs (because they have a street address in Portland, Oregon)
