* A wiki is designed to allow every user to edit its content. If you see something you think could be improved about the {{SITENAME}}, '''improve it!''' Just click the "edit" tab at the top of most pages to edit their contents. You may have to [{{fullurl:Special:Userlogin&type=signup}} sign up] and/or [{{fullurl:Special:Userlogin}} log in] before you'll see the "edit" tab - but it's free and takes under a minute to do so.

* '''Don't be afraid to edit.''' Part of the wiki system is an integrated version tracking system, so there's never a fear of losing something. If you make a mistake, you or someone else can easily fix it - so take the initiative and make a change if you think it's useful. (Tip: when editing, you can also use the "Preview" button to check how the page will look before you save it!)
