On a wiki, it is customary to allow readers to edit content and structure. This is a brief overview of the editing and contributing process. The editing table of contents to the right contains more information on editing functions.
 
 
== Editing basics ==
 
<!--It is intended to be brief, or as an overview. Otherwise why we separate the materials into different pages? Thus it's best NOT to add new materials or expand here. Add more examples or expand in other areas like Wikitext examples. Thanks!-->
 
===Review policy and conventions===
 
:Make sure that you submit information which is relevant to the specific purpose of the wiki, or your content might be deleted. You can always use the [[Help:Talk page|talk pages]] to ask questions or check to see if your idea will be accepted. Please make note of the license your contributions will be covered with.
 
 
=== Start editing ===
 
:To start editing a [[w:MediaWiki|MediaWiki]] page, click the '''Edit this page''' (or just '''edit''') link at one of its edges. This brings you to the edit page: a page with a text box containing the ''[[w:wikitext|wikitext]]'' - the editable code from which the server produces the finished page. ''If you just want to experiment, please do so in the [[{{ns:4}}:Sandbox|sandbox]], not here''.
 
 
===Type your changes===
 
:You can just type your text. However, also using basic wiki markup (described in the next section) to make links and do simple formatting adds to the value of your contribution. [[w:Wikimedia|Wikimedia]] wikis have style guidelines available. If you follow these, your contributions will be more valuable as they won't need to be cleaned up later.
 
 
===Summarize your changes===
 
:Write a short [[Help:Edit summary|edit summary]] in the small field below the edit-box. You may use shorthand to describe your changes, as described in the [[w:Wikipedia:Edit summary legend|edit summary legend]].
 
 
===Preview before saving===
 
:When you have finished, click '''[[Help:Show preview|Show preview]]''' to see how your changes will look '''before''' you make them permanent.  Repeat the edit/preview process until you are satisfied, then click '''Save page''' and your changes will be immediately applied to the article.
 
 
==Most frequent wiki markup explained==
 
<!--It is intended to be brief, or as an overview. Otherwise why we separate the materials into different pages? Thus it's best NOT to add new materials or expand here. Add more examples or expand in other areas like Wikitext examples. Thanks!-->
 
Here are the 6 most frequently used types of wiki markup. If you need more help see [[Help:Wikitext examples|Wikitext examples]].

{| class="wikitable"
 
! style="width: 50%" | What it looks like

You can ''italicize text'' by putting 2
 
apostrophes on each side.
 
 
3 apostrophes will embolden '''the text'''.
 
 
5 apostrophes will embolden and italicize
 
'''''the text'''''.
 
 
(4 apostrophes doesn't do anything special -- there's just ''''one left over''''.)

You should "sign" your comments on talk pages: <br>
 
- Three tildes give your user name: [[User:Karl Wick|Karl Wick]] <br>
 
- Four tildes give your user name plus date/time: [[User:Karl Wick|Karl Wick]] 07:46, 27 November 2005 (UTC) <br>
 
- Five tildes give the date/time alone: 07:46, 27 November 2005 (UTC) <br>

<div style="font-size:150%;border-bottom:1px solid #000000;">Section headings</div>
 
 
''Headings'' organize your writing into sections.
 
The Wiki software can automatically generate
 
a [[Help:table of contents|table of contents]] from them.
 
 
<div style="font-size:132%;font-weight:bold;">Subsection</div>
 
Using more equals signs creates a subsection.
 
 
<div style="font-size:116%;font-weight:bold;">A smaller subsection</div>
 
 
Don't skip levels, like from two to four equals signs.
 
 
Start with 2 equals signs not 1 because 1 creates H1 tags which should be reserved for page title.

* ''Unordered [[Help:List|list]]s'' are easy to do:
 
** Start every line with a star.
 
*** More stars indicate a deeper level.
 
*: Previous item continues.
 
** A new line
 
* in a list 
 
marks the end of the list.
 
*Of course you can start again.
