This tutorial will help you become a Wikipedia contributor. The following pages will give you guidance about the style and content of Wikipedia articles, and tell you about the Wikipedia community and important Wikipedia policies and conventions. This is a basic tutorial, not an extensive manual. If you want Becoming a Wikipedia editor: an overview more details, there are links to other pages for more information. To read them as you go along, you can open them in a separate browser window or tab. There are links to "sandbox" pages where you can practice what youre learning. Try things out and play around! Nobody will mind if you mess up and experiment in these practice areas. So, lets learn about editing! Note: The tutorial assumes you are using the default page layout. If youre logged in and have changed your preferences, the location of links may differ. Next: Lets learn about editing → References [1] http:/ / webchat. freenode. net/ ?channels=wikipedia-en-help

It is Wikipedias most basic feature, and allows you to make corrections and add facts to articles. If you add information to an article, please provide references, because unreferenced facts can be removed. To practice editing, go to the sandbox and click the "Edit" tab. When you click the "Edit" tab, that will open an editing window Click the "Edit" tab to change an article containing the text for that page. Type in something fun and interesting, or just replace words for your own words.". Now click the Save page button and see what you have done! Edit summary Your first practice edit (above) left off two steps that you should do if you are editing an article or other page that people will read. So click the "Edit" tab again, enter some text, and then do those two additional steps. First, any time you edit a page, it is considered good etiquette (or "Wikiquette") to enter a explanation of your changes in the Edit summary box, which youll find below the edit window. Its okay for your explanation to be quite short. For example, if you are making a spelling correction, you might just type "typo". Also, if the change you have made to a page is minor, such as correcting a spelling or grammar error, its helpful if you check the box "This is a minor edit". [This box is only available if you have logged in.] For your sandbox edit, you probably want an edit summary such as "Testing". Show preview Second, you should always use the Show preview button. After youve entered a change in the edit box for the sandbox, click the button instead of Save Page. This lets you to see what The "Show preview" button is right next to the "save page" button and below the edit the page will look like after your edit, summary field. before you actually save. We all make mistakes; this feature helps you catch them before other people see them. Using Show Preview before saving also lets you try format changes and other edits without cluttering up the page history. Do not forget to save your edits after previewing, though!
  5. 5. Wikipedia:Tutorial/Editing 3 Save the page Done the edit summary? Previewed the page? Then youre ready for the final step: click the Save page button.

[1] Help index: Ask questions · Learn wikicode · View FAQ · Read Glossary · Live help via web chat  · Help desk · Reference desk · Tutorial Introduction Editing Formatting Wikipedia links Citing sources Talk pages Keep in mind Registration Wrap-up Formatting a Wikipedia article is a bit different from writing on a standard word processor. Instead of a strict WYSIWYG approach ("What You See Is What You Get"), Wikipedia uses text codes to create particular elements of the page (e.g., headings). This markup language is known as Wikitext (or Wiki-markup) and is designed for ease of editing. Bold and italics The most commonly used wiki tags are bold and italics. Bolding and italicizing are done by surrounding a A video (screencast) showing how to make bold and italics word or phrase with multiple apostrophes (): You type You get italic italic bold bold bold italic bold italic On Wikipedia, the names of an articles subject are written in bold when they are first mentioned in the article. For example, the article Elizabeth II begins: Elizabeth II (Elizabeth Alexandra Mary, born 21 April 1926) is the reigning queen and head of state of 16 independent sovereign states known as the Commonwealth realms: ... Italics may be used for the names of books, movies, albums, and computer/video game titles. If the first mention of the subject of an article is also a book or movie title, then bold italic is used. For more information about using bold and italics, see Wikipedia:Manual of Style.
  6. 6. Wikipedia:Tutorial/Formatting 4 Headings and subheadings Headings and subheadings are a way to improve the organization of an article. If you can see two or more distinct topics being discussed, with more than a couple paragraphs for each, you can make the article more readable by inserting a heading for each topic - that is, making each into its own section. Headings are created like this: You type You get ==Heading== Heading ===Subheading=== Subheading If an article has at least four headings, a table of contents will automatically be generated. Try creating a heading in this pages /sandbox/. It will be added automatically to the table of contents for the page, assuming three others already exist. HTML Wikitext contains all the features required to follow Wikipedias formatting conventions and knowledge of HTML code is not necessary, although it is often used for more specific formatting such as using colors, text and paragraph styles, and page layout. See How to edit a page or the Cheatsheet for more on editing a page. You can also check out an annotated example page.

  7. 7. Wikipedia:Tutorial/Wikipedia links 5 Wikipedia:Tutorial/Wikipedia links Welcome to Wikipedia! [1] Help index: Ask questions · Learn wikicode · View FAQ · Read Glossary · Live help via web chat  · Help desk · Reference desk · Tutorial Introduction Editing Formatting Wikipedia links Citing sources Talk pages Keep in mind Registration Wrap-up Linking Wikipedia articles together is very important. These easily created links allow users to jump to information related to the article they are reading, greatly adding to Wikipedias usefullness. How to link To make a link to another Wikipedia page (called a wiki link), put it in double square brackets, like this: [[Sandbox]] which the reader will see, after you save your edit, as this: Sandbox A video tutorial about the basics of wiki markup, including creating links If you want to link to an article, but display some other text for the link, you can do so by adding the pipe "|" divider (SHIFT + BACKSLASH on English-layout and other keyboards) followed by the alternative name. For example: [[Target page|display text]] will display as this: display text You can make a link to a specific section of a page like so: [[Target page#Target section|display text]] which will display as this: display text If you want the display text of the link to appear in italics or bold, nest the double square brackets for the link within the multiple apostrophes that delimit the italicized or bold text, like this: [[War and Peace]] which will display as this: War and Peace Please check your links to ensure they point to the correct article. For example, Apple points to the article about the fruit, while Apple Inc. is the title of the article about the computer manufacturer. There are also "disambiguation" pages, which are not articles, but rather are pages which contain links to articles with similar titles. Some, such as Apple (disambiguation) are obvious, while others such as Georgia use generic titles. These differing titles are where piped links are especially useful. For example, a wikilink of Georgia (country) is much less readable than a piped link of Georgia, though both take the reader to the same place.
  8. 8. Wikipedia:Tutorial/Wikipedia links 6 When to link Adding links to an article makes it more useful, but too many links can be distracting. (Lead sections often have more links than other sections of articles.) To avoid excessive links, you should normally create a link, in an article, only where the first occurrence of a word or phrase occurs. And you should not link common words such as "state" and "world", even though Wikipedia has articles for those words. Looking at other Wikipedia articles can help you learn when to add links. You can find a list of high quality articles on the featured articles page. Categories You can also put the article in a category with others in a related topic. Near the bottom of the article, type [[Category:]], and put the name of the category between the colon and the brackets. It is very important to put in the correct categories so that other people can easily find your work. The best way to find which categories to put in is to look at pages on similar subjects, and check which categories they use. For example if you write an article about a type of tree, you may look at an article on another type of tree to see which categories could be appropriate. For more information, see Wikipedia:Categorization Test what you have learned in the sandbox Continue the tutorial with Citing sources → Wikipedia:Tutorial/Citing sources Welcome to Wikipedia! [1] Help index: Ask questions · Learn wikicode · View FAQ · Read Glossary · Live help via web chat  · Help desk · Reference desk · Tutorial Introduction Editing Formatting Wikipedia links Citing sources Talk pages Keep in mind Registration Wrap-up As stated in About Wikipedia, "if you add information to an article, be sure to include your references, as unreferenced facts are subject to removal." It is best to use inline citations so that other editors and readers can verify the information you add. Also, make sure that every source you use is trustworthy and authoritative. Footnotes The easiest way to create an inline citation is with a footnote. You can create a footnotes with Wiki markup, by adding ref tags around your source, like this: <ref>Your Source</ref> If youre adding the first footnote to an article, you also need to make sure that there is text that tells Wikipedia to display footnotes. That text will look like this: {{Reflist}} or <references/>. That text should be immediately below the section heading ==References==. If that section doesnt exist, you will need to add it (both the heading and either the "Reflist" or "references" text above). Place the new section near the bottom of the article, just above the "External links" section (if that exists). Once you have saved your edit, the ref tags will convert your source into a footnote reference (like this one[1] ), if there is a References section to display footnotes.
  9. 9. Wikipedia:Tutorial/Citing sources 7 If your source is available online, you should create an external link to the web page where the source can be found. (Do not use other Wikipedia articles as sources; by "online" we mean "on a non-Wikipedia website".) To create a basic external link to your source, place the website address (URL) within single square brackets along with some text, which the reader will see as a link. For example: <ref>[ Article in The New York Times]</ref> Though it is not required, it is highly recommended to provide more information than that in a footnote. Here is a more complete footnote: <ref>Name of author, [ "Title of article"], The New York Times, date</ref> It is not recommended to use bare URLs for your external link references, because of link rot. Please see Wikipedia:Citing sources for further instructions on writing footnotes. Also, there are templates that help with the proper formatting of references (footnotes), see Wikipedia:Citation templates for further details. External links section Many Wikipedia articles have a separate section called External links. This section is for linking to websites with significant and reliable additional information on the articles topic. Only a relatively few, very relevant external links are appropriate for this section: see the guideline Wikipedia:External links for details. If an article already has more than a few links in the "External links" section, and youre an inexperienced editor, you probably should suggest any new links on the articles Discussion (talk) page before actually adding one. To add a new external link, just type, inside a single set of brackets, the full URL for the link, followed by a space and the text that will be visible. For example: [ Official website] will display the following, whilst linking to the full URL: Official website [2] Try editing in the sandbox Continue the tutorial with Talk pages → References [1] Example [2] http:/ / www. example. com/
  10. 10. Wikipedia:Tutorial/Talk pages 8 Wikipedia:Tutorial/Talk pages Welcome to Wikipedia! [1] Help index: Ask questions · Learn wikicode · View FAQ · Read Glossary · Live help via web chat  · Help desk · Reference desk · Tutorial Introduction Editing Formatting Wikipedia links Citing sources Talk pages Keep in mind Registration Wrap-up Talk pages are a key feature of Wikipedia, offering the ability to discuss articles and other issues with other Wikipedians. They are not to be used as a chat room, soapbox, battleground or for general discussion of the article topic. If you have a question, concern or comment related to improving an article put a note in the articles talk page and not in the article itself. You do that by clicking the "discussion" tab at the top of the page. Do not worry if the link shows up in red; it is all right to create the talk page if it does not already exist. If you are responding to someone elses remarks, put your comment below theirs. You should indent it properly (see section below). If youre not responding to someone else, but are posting about something new, use the "New section" tab at the top of the talk page to create a new section, which automatically goes at the bottom of the page. You should always sign your comments by typing ~~~~ for your username plus a time signature. Then, when you click "Save page", your signature will be inserted automatically. Otherwise your posting will still appear but without your name. (For your convenience, there is a button at the top of the edit box with a signature icon which inserts "--~~~~" when clicked.) If you do not have a username account, or if you have one but have not logged in, your computers external IP address will be used instead as your signature, when you type ~~~~ and save your edit. And in such cases, whether or not you sign your comment, your IP address will be recorded (in the page history) as having made the edit. If you dont want your IP address recorded by Wikipedia in a way that everyone can see it, then you should get a username by creating an account. (It is 100% free.) User talk pages Every editor (every person with a username) has a user talk page on which other contributors can leave messages. This includes contributors who have not created an account. If someone has left you a message, you will see a note across the top of Wikipedia pages (if youre signed in) saying "You have new messages", with a link to your user talk page. You can reply in either of two ways. One is to put a message on the user talk page of the person you are replying to. The other is to put your reply on your own talk page beneath the original message. Both are common on Wikipedia; however, be aware that replying on your own talk page runs the risk that your reply wont be seen, if the user does not look at your talk page again. If you intend to use this approach, it is a good idea to post a notice to that effect, at the top of your talk page, so people know they have to keep an eye on the page to see your response, rather than getting your response on their page.
  11. 11. Wikipedia:Tutorial/Talk pages 9 Indenting Indenting can improve the layout of a discussion considerably, making it much easier to read. A standard practice is to indent your reply one level deeper than the person you are replying to. There are several ways of indenting in Wikipedia: Plain indentations The simplest way of indenting is to place a colon (:) at the beginning of a line. The more colons you put, the further indented the text will be. A newline (pressing Enter or Return) marks the end of the indented paragraph. For example: This is aligned all the way to the left. : This is indented slightly. :: This is indented more. is shown as: This is aligned all the way to the left. This is indented slightly. This is indented more. Bullet points You can also indent using bullets, which are also used for lists. To insert a bullet (when your edit is saved), type an asterisk (*). Similar to indentation, more asterisks in front of a paragraph means more indentation. A brief example: * First list item * Second list item ** Sub-list item under second * Third list item Which is shown as: • First list item • Second list item • Sub-list item under second • Third list item Numbered items You can also create numbered lists. For this, use the number sign or "octothorpe" (#). This is usually used for polls and voting, and otherwise is fairly rare. Again, you can affect the indent of the number by the number of #s you use. Example: # First item # Second item ## Sub-item under second item # Third item Shows up as: 1. First item
  12. 12. Wikipedia:Tutorial/Talk pages 10 2. Second item 1. Sub-item under second item 3. Third item Example discussion Here is an example of a well-formatted discussion: Hi. I have a question about this article. Im pretty sure purple elephants only live in New York! JayRandumWikiUser 02:49, 10 Dec 2003 (UTC) Well, last time I was in New York, the elephants I saw were green. — try2BEEhelpful 17:28, 11 Dec 2003 (UTC) I think you should find a source for your claims. Living × Skepticism 20:53, 11 Dec 2003 (UTC) Okay, these elephant journals agree with me: • Elephants Monthly • Elephants World — try2BEEhelpful 19:09, 12 Dec 2003 (UTC) I live in Australia, where the elephants look like kangaroos! The people below agree with my statement: -DontGdayMateMe 17:28, 14 Dec 2003 (UTC) 1. ElefantLuvr 01:22, 15 Dec 2003 (UTC) 2. AisleVoteOnAnything 05:41, 15 Dec 2003 (UTC) 3. alittlebehindthetimes 18:39, 27 Jan 2004 (UTC) Note that if you want to include a list in your comments, add colons before each item, for example: ::: Okay, these elephant journals agree with me: ::: * Elephants Monthly ::: * Elephants World ::: ~~~~ Again, signing your message (posting) is done by: • Writing ~~~~ for your name and date (try2BEEhelpful 19:09, 12 Dec 2003 (UTC)) You can add a signature only, or a date only, but this is unusual. Heres how: • Writing ~~~ for the name (try2BEEhelpful), or • Writing ~~~~~ for the date only (19:09, 12 Dec 2003 (UTC)). Votes are often signed with names only.
  13. 13. Wikipedia:Tutorial/Talk pages 11 Experiment Experiment! This time, instead of editing a sandbox, leave a message on the talk page by clicking "Discuss this page" or "Discussion". Remember to sign your user name. You might want to try responding to someone elses post. Remember, you should use "Show preview" to see if your formatting works before you save. Try a sample discussion at this pages Discussion page Other project pages In addition to Talk pages, there are some other categories of behind-the-scenes pages that help Wikipedians communicate with each other, and serve a variety of other roles in building Wikipedia. These different areas are often referred to as namespaces — as in, "the Talk namespace". Pages in the Wikipedia namespace (also known as the "Project namespace") provide information about Wikipedia and how to use it. Content written in a Template page will be displayed in articles that contain the corresponding template reference. For example, the content written in Template:Pp-protected will appear in any article that contains the {{pp-protected}} tag. Take a look at Wikipedia:Template messages to see what templates have already been created. You can use the corresponding tags in articles. You can also create new templates. All of these project pages also have Talk pages of their own. For more information, see Wikipedia:Namespace Continue the tutorial with Keep in mind → Wikipedia:Tutorial/Keep in mind Welcome to Wikipedia! [1] Help index: Ask questions · Learn wikicode · View FAQ · Read Glossary · Live help via web chat  · Help desk · Reference desk · Tutorial Introduction Editing Formatting Wikipedia links Citing sources Talk pages Keep in mind Registration Wrap-up There are some things to keep in mind when editing Wikipedia. Editorial policies Subject matter Wikipedia is an editable encyclopedia (along with some topics that would typically be found in an almanac). Hence, articles should consist of encyclopedic information about "notable" subjects. What exactly constitutes notability is the subject of constant debate on Wikipedia, but in no case should there be (per Wikipedia rules) an article for every person on the planet, or for every company that sells anything, or for each street in every town in the world. However, there are sister projects for certain types of non-encyclopedic content. Encyclopedia articles are primarily about the subject, not the words for the subject, so any article that simply defines and explains the usages of a word, or short phrase, as you would find in a typical dictionary, should be contributed to the Wiktionary sister project instead. Original source text, such as from a public-domain book that you want to post to make it more accessible, should be contributed to one of Wikipedias other sister projects, Wikisource. For a list of all related projects, see the Complete list of Wikimedia projects.
  14. 14. Wikipedia:Tutorial/Keep in mind 12 Wikipedia is also not the place for "original research" — that is, new theories that have not been published in a peer-reviewed journal. For more details about what Wikipedia should include, see What Wikipedia is not and Notability (people). We also tend to discourage authors from writing about themselves or their own accomplishments, as this is a conflict of interest. If you have made notable accomplishments, someone else will write an article about you (eventually). Wikipedia:Autobiography has more detail on this. Neutral point of view Wikipedias editorial policy is that articles must be written in "neutral point of view," often abbreviated "NPOV." This policy says that we accept all the significant viewpoints on an issue. Instead of simply stating one perspective, we try to present all relevant viewpoints without judging them. Our aim is to be informative, not persuasive. Our policy does NOT mean that our articles are expected to be 100% "objective," since in any dispute all sides believe their view to be "true." It is okay to state opinions in articles, but they must be presented as opinions, not as fact. Also, it is a good idea to attribute these opinions, for example "Supporters of this say that..." or "Notable commentator X believes that..." You might hear Wikipedians referring to an article as having a "POV" problem. This is Wikipedia slang for a biased article, or one obviously written from a single perspective. Advertising copy would fall in this category, as would a political diatribe. In a less extreme case, an article might have "POV" problems if it spends significantly more time discussing one view than another view of equivalent significance, even if each view is presented neutrally, or if the article gives excessive coverage to a minor viewpoint. If you are going to spend time on controversial articles in subjects like religion or politics, it is important that you read the neutral point of view policy page as soon as possible. You should probably also read the essay Staying cool when the editing gets hot. If you are going to spend your time on less emotional topics such math, or video games, you should still read the policies, but it is a less pressing concern. Keep in mind the advice here, and read the full policy if an NPOV issue comes up. See also the NPOV tutorial. Citing sources Wikipedia requires that you cite sources for the information you contribute, preferably by adding a footnote, as discussed in the "Citing Sources" page of this tutorial. Citations help our readers verify what you have written and find more information. If any websites would be of particular interest to a reader of an article, they should be listed and linked to in an "External links" section. Books of particular interest should be listed in a "Further reading" section, but only if they were not used as sources for the article. For more information, see Wikipedia:Citing sources
  15. 15. Wikipedia:Tutorial/Keep in mind 13 Copyrights Do not add copyrighted materials to Wikipedia without permission from the copyright owner. When adding information to articles, make sure it is written in your own words. Remember that all information found on the Internet is copyrighted unless the website specifically states otherwise. For more information, see Wikipedia:Copyrights English dialects All common forms of words are welcome on Wikipedia. An abridged version of the policy here could be stated as: 1. Do not edit a page simply to "correct" a spelling that is correct in another language. 2. If the subject of an article is related to the U.S., then U.S. English is preferred: Child labor laws in the United States 3. If the subject is related to an organization using British English (UK, Commonwealth, Ireland, UN, etc.) then British English is preferred.: On-licence 4. If the subject is not a regional one ("astronomy," for example), the original contributors usage should be followed. See American and British English differences if you have difficulty with this. 5. The usage should be consistent throughout an article, unless it mentions both US- and Britain/Commonwealth-related topics. In that case, Policies 2 and 3 prevail. 6. When you create a new article, generally the most commonly used title is preferred. A simple way of testing this is to try a Search engine test on one of the common search engines, and see what generates more results. For a more detailed version of the policy, see Manual of Style (spelling) Conduct Wikipedia encourages an atmosphere of friendliness and openness. Of course, in practice there are sometimes disagreements and even an occasional heated argument, but members of the community are expected to behave in a generally civil manner. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you should always assume good faith on the part of other editors. Do not assume that someone is acting out of spite or malice. If someone does something that upsets you, leave a polite message on the relevant articles talk page or on the users talk page, and ask why. You may find that you have avoided a misunderstanding and saved yourself some embarrassment. For a more detailed discussion of conduct, see Wikipedia:Etiquette Creating articles When creating articles on Wikipedia, try to take the advice given in the tutorial and to follow the policies mentioned here, such as neutrality. It is important to cite sources to establish the notability of the topic and make the article verifiable. You need to be registered to directly create an article in the encyclopedia, but if you are not, you can still use the articles for creation process. For details on how to create an article, see Wikipedia:Your first article
  16. 16. Wikipedia:Tutorial/Keep in mind 14 Renaming articles If you find an article that you believe is mis-named, please do not copy and paste the contents of the old article into a new article — among other things, it separates the previous contributions from their edit history (which we need to keep track of for copyright reasons). The preferred method is to move the page to the new name, you need to be registered for that. If it is your first move, please read the warnings on the move page carefully, as there are a number of issues to consider before moving a page. If a "disambiguation" page is involved, it is best to review Wikipedia:Disambiguation.

Everyone can contribute to Wikipedia, regardless of whether they choose to register. However, there are several benefits to registering a username, including: • The ability to create new articles. • Having an account gives you many extra features, including more editing options and user preferences. One handy feature is the watchlist, which makes it easier for you to track changes to pages you are interested in. Another is the ability to move or rename a page. (Do not move pages simply through copying and pasting as the edit history is not preserved that way. Instead, ask at the Village pump for a registered users help.) • An unregistered user is identified by his or her computers IP address, which is used as their public identifier when making contributions (and signing comments on talk pages). Your computers IP address can often be used to find information about you, so registering increases your privacy by making your IP address non-visible to other editors. Also, because IP addresses often change, unregistered users sometimes find it more difficult to gain respect and recognition from other editors through building a good track record. It can also be more difficult to carry on conversations with such non-registered users since they lack a unique talk page. For these reasons, many Wikipedians consider registering to indicate a greater willingness by you to stand behind your edits, and your comments on discussion pages. This means your contributions to articles and discussion pages will generally be given more weight. • Some pages, such as this page, require users to be autoconfirmed before they may be edited. This ability is automatically given to registered users who have been on Wikipedia for at least four days and have made ten edits, but is not given to unregistered users, regardless of the number of edits made. • Only registered users are allowed to become administrators (also known as sysops). If you register, do not forget your password or your user name. If you are prone to forgetting these, make sure you enter your email address as part of signing up, so you can have a new password sent to you if you forget your current one.
