I'm relatively new to Wikipedia, and would like to get to know more about Wikipedia. I hope to contribute as much as I can and follow all policies that are encouraged to follow. I have been editing some minor things here and there on Wikipedia for a few weeks but have never got around to actually become a member. Now that I have created my own account I will try to contribute more to Wikipedia and encourage others to do the same.
Just below the edit box is the edit summary field. Edit summaries are displayed in an article's history to make it easier for other editors to know what you did to an article. They are a very important part of Wikipedia operations, so please summarize all your edits!
Do you keep forgetting to fill in the edit summary box before saving your edits? Well, you can let Wikipedia remember for you! Go to my preferences, select the "Editing" tab, and check the last option box, "Prompt me when entering a blank edit summary". With this option set, Wikipedia won't allow you to save if the edit summary box is empty.
