General pointers

  • Request a real or otherwise recognizable login name (if you are comfortable doing so) so your colleagues will know who you are.
  • The current user list is here.
  • You can see recent contributions to the site on the Recent changes page.
  • Look at an article's editing history by clicking the "history" tab at the top of any page.
  • Each page has a "discussion" tab at the top. This is a good place to ask questions and make suggestions about a given topic.
  • You can "sign" your contributions to the discussion page (or any other page) by typing "-- ~ ~ ~ ~" - without the spaces! - or by just hitting the little button that looks like a signature at the top of the editing box. It looks like this: -- Rfhall (talk) 00:44, 3 August 2013 (PDT)
  • You can upload images here. Follow the instructions on that page to use the image in any of the articles.
