Welcome to Wikipedia

- Main Introduction — What is Wikipedia?
- Wikipedia:A Primer for newcomers — A good starting point.

- What Wikipedia is not - even though everyone can edit it, Wikipedia is still an encyclopedia.
If you want to know more about a specific subject, Help:Help explains how to navigate the many help pages.
- Google: Wikipedia is very well indexed by Google. Searching for a term, even about an editing question, followed by "wiki" or "wikipedia" usually pulls up what you need.

- If you would like to create a new article, Starting an article will explain how to create a new page, with tips for success and a link to Wikipedia's Article Wizard, which can guide you through the process of submitting a new article to Wikipedia.
- For more support and some friendly contacts to get you started, the Editors' Welcome page or the Wikipedia:Teahouse page could be your next stop!
There is some confusion here. Although WP:ERA is important, it's irrelevant here as the real issue is that you shouldn't change calendar dates to Before present dates, which are calibrated dates using C14 dating. WP:ERA says "Do not convert other notations to BP unless you are certain of what you are doing" but I'd say that you should never do that yourself, you would need a source as C14 dates aren't the same as calendar dates.
