This guide will take you through the steps you should take to get started editing on the wiki. It is recommended all users follow these steps in order to become an established, active member of the site and community. Let's get started!

1. Read our Rules & Guidelines

Click the link in the above heading to go to our Rules & Guidelines page, and read through them. We try to make these as readable as possible, so that you don't have a hard time getting through. It's important to know all the rules of our site before you start contributing, to make sure you can follow them. Our guidelines will also help you to understand how pages on the site are supposed to be formatted. This especially important to keep the site consistent across the board.

2. Create an Account & set up your Profile

Now that you know the rules of the wiki and how to format your pages, you can create an account. All editors of the site are required to have an account, unlike other wiki-type sites that allow anonymous editing. Once you've created your account and verified your e-mail, click on your username in the top-right corner of any page to proceed to your profile page. Feel free to customize it however you'd like, within the rules.

3. Start contributing!

You're all set to start contributing to the site! If you're not sure where to start, you can look at the Wanted Pages list to see pages that are linked to but do not exist, or the list of Stub Pages to see what pages are short and need expansion. If nothing there appeals to you, feel free to create a page on whatever you'd like (as long as it is relevant to the site and falls within our creation guidelines.

You're all set! Now that you've read our starting guide, you're ready to become a contributor! Good luck, and have fun!
