Here are some useful tips to ease you into the Wikipedia experience:
- First, take a look at the Wikipedia Tutorial, and perhaps dabble a bit in the test area.
- When you have some free time, take a look at the Manual of Style and Policies and Guidelines. They can come in very handy!
- Learn about some of the Wikipedia landmarks by trying our Wikipedia scavenger hunt!
- If you need any help, feel free to post a question at the Help Desk
- Wikipedia has a vibrant community of editors. The village pump is a great place to see the goings on.
- Remember to use a neutral point of view!
- Explore, be bold in editing pages, and, most importantly, have fun!
Also, here are some odds and ends that I find useful from time to time:
- Wikipedia:Five pillars
- Wikipedia:Brilliant prose
- Wikipedia:Be bold in updating pages
- Wikipedia:Bad jokes and other deleted nonsense

Oh, and another thing
Hi, EquationDoc. All you have to do is click the "move" tab at the top of the article's page, and type the new name into the "to new title" field. If there is already a page at the new location, then an administrator will have to do the move. I've already moved Bcl-2–associated death protein to Bcl-2-associated X protein. Cheers! – ClockworkSoul 15:55, 9 November 2006 (UTC)
- Ah, I see the problem. Your account must be at least four days old before you can move a page. Within a couple of days, your move tab will appear. – ClockworkSoul 17:11, 9 November 2006 (UTC)
Re: Article Title Style Question - Acronyms
As far as I know, there is no currently agreed upon standard when it comes to article names and abbreviations, but the general tendency is to use the subject's full name as the location of the main article, and then create a redirect from the acronym. Regarding your other questions, I don't believe that there is any official standard for any of those questions, but there's been some discussion at the MCB porposals page. I'll repost your question to our help page: with some luck it can kick start the discussion. – ClockworkSoul 05:13, 10 November 2006 (UTC)
- Even better: I just remembered that we have a style guidelines page! Sorry, it's been a long day. If you still find it lacking, please let me know, or post it to MCB, and we'll figure it out. – ClockworkSoul 05:19, 10 November 2006 (UTC)
- Ah, I see. The style is that human gene and protein names are written in capitals (for example, ALDOA, INS, etc). For orthologs of human genes in other species, only the initial letter is capitalized. It looks like the article should be moved, and a redirect left in its place. – ClockworkSoul 05:40, 10 November 2006 (UTC)
Excellent idea: thanks for adding it! I was thinking, however, that it might be a good idea to expand the scope of the page to include non-protein images, such as pathway diagrams and the like. What do you think? – ClockworkSoul 16:26, 11 November 2006 (UTC)
