How to Create a new Exploration Technique

  1. Be sure the technique you want to add does not already exist - in any form of the name
  2. Go to
  3. Click on "Add a new Exploration Technique"
  4. Enter the name of the new technique - be careful to check the spelling, since this creates the page name, which can be problematic to change in the future - and click enter. You will be brought to the exploration techniques template.
  5. For the "Exploration Group" - enter one of the 8 exploration groups listed here
  6. For the "Exploration Subgroup" - enter then next level below the exploration group. If the technique itself is the next level, enter the technique as the subgroup
  7. For the "Parent Exploration Technique" - enter the technique directly above the technique you are creating. In some cases, this is the "Group" or "Subgroup", but in many cases it is not.
  8. For the "Category" - select only the parent technique as the category.
  9. Fill out the rest of the template blanks, as needed.
