Topic Hints Examples

H1 is used for the title of a wiki page. Therefore it is better to start with == Heading 2 == for your own content.


If you want to comment on the page's content, do so in the Discussion tab:

  1. Click on the Discussion tab at the top of the page
  2. If there is already discussion on what you want to say, click on the "edit" button for that section and leave a comment after the existing comments. You can indent your comments by putting a colon (":") at the beginning of each paragraph. This is helpful when replying to previous comments.
  3. If you are starting a new topic, click on the "+" sign near the edit tab at the top. Write the subject of your comment in the "Subject/Headline" box, and write your comment in the main text box.
  4. Always sign your username in discussions. Do this automatically with four tildes ("~~~~")
Watching Pages

If you keep "Watch this page" selected, it will be added to your watchlist (no, you won't be sent e-mails when they are updated, unless you ask it to in your preferences).

Bad Pages
  • If your page shows up in the Maintenance reports, you likely did something wrong
  • If you find a page ignoring these guidelines and you can not fix it (for example because you do not know the language) add {{PageIgnoresWikiGuidelines}} at the top of it to notify the original author.
