Getting Started

General Rules

If you're new to Precurepedia site, before getting into editing, you must make sure your edits adhere to the wiki's basic rules.

Main article: Precurepedia:Rules.

Editing a Page

Before beginning to edit, it is suggested that you know the basics of Wikitext. The Precurepedia is a wiki, meaning that anyone can edit any unprotected page and improve articles immediately for all readers. You only need to register to do this. The Precurepedia uses two methods of editing: the new VisualEditor (VE), and classic editing through wiki markup (wikitext). Some pages, like the main page, are protected from editing, if you are not allowed to edit the page, have a View source tab instead of an Edit tab.

To begin editing a page, click on "Edit" (VE/VisualEditor) or the "Edit source" (classic) tab at the top. To edit an individual section, look at the section header for "[edit]" or "[edit source]".

  • Minor edits - A check to the "minor edit" box signifies that only superficial differences exist between the version with your edit and the previous version: typo corrections, formatting and presentational changes, rearranging of text without modifying content, improvements, etc. A minor edit is a version that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute. The "minor edit" option is one of several edit options. Editors should not feel that marking a change as minor devalues their effort.

When you have finished editing, you should write a short edit summary in the small field below the edit box. You may use shorthand to describe your changes, as described in the legend. To see how the page looks with your edits, press the "Show preview" button. To see the differences between the page with your edits and the previous version of the page, press the "Show changes" button. Your changes will immediately be visible to all wiki users.

Happy editing!

Basic Wiki

Templates

List of Templates

A template is a pre-set piece of text that can be added to a page without having to retype the same text over and over again. This presents an advantage as you only have to change the text on one page and the change will be reflected on every page that contains the template.

Talk pages

Every article on the Wiki has a talk page, reached by clicking the Discussion tab just above the title. There, editors can discuss improvements to the content of an article. If you ever make a change that gets reverted by another editor, discuss the change on the talk page! The BOLD, revert, discuss cycle is a popular method of reaching consensus. It is very important that you conduct yourself with civility and assume good faith on the part of others. Edit warring (repeatedly overriding or reimplementing contributions) is highly discouraged. Most other types of pages on the Wiki also have associated talk pages, including the User page each editor is assigned once they sign up. When other editors need to contact you, they will usually do this by leaving a message on your talk page. When someone has left you a message that way, you will see a notice the next time you log in or view a page on the Wiki.

  • Sign your contributions to a Talk page by using four tildes (~~~~) before posting, which produces your username and a time/date stamp.
