Alternatively, leave me a message at my talk page or type {{helpme}} here on your talk page, and someone will try to help.

There are many ways you can contribute to Wikipedia. Here are a few ideas:

Crystal package settings.png   Help contribute to articles
           
Vista-advancedsettings.png   Perform maintenance tasks

Remember to always sign your posts on talk pages. You can do this either by clicking on the Insert-signature.png button on the edit toolbar or by typing four tildes (~~~~) at the end of your post. This will automatically insert your signature, a link to this (your talk) page, and a timestamp.

The best way to learn about something is to experience it. Explore, learn, contribute, and don't forget to have some fun!
To get some practice editing you can use a sandbox. You can create your own private sandbox for use any time. Perfect for working on bigger projects. Then for easy access in the future, you can put {{My sandbox}} on your user page. By the way, seeing as you haven't created a user page yet, simply click here to start it.

Wikitext[edit]

I thought you might find this useful:

The term "wikitext" refers to Wikipedia's wp:wiki markup language. Formats:

  • [[hyperlink]] or [[hyperlink|link here]] or [[expert]]ly    → hyperlink or link here or expertly
  • [http://www.google.com external link]      → external link   (to an outside webpage)
  • [[File:Example.jpg|thumb|55px|Caption]]      →   (shows image, see below)
  • ==Header== → Header        ===Subheader=== → Subheader
  • ''italic''   '''bold'''   '''''bold-italic'''''italic   bold   bold-italic
  • * bullet → • bullet       (or ":*" or "::*" to indent)
    Caption
  • : indent →     indent   (or "::" or "::::::" to indent more)
  • # numbered →   1.  numbered   ("#:" indents under numbered lines)
  • #* bullet under number →   °  bullet under number
  • [[Category:xx]] → (internal wp:category link).
  • {{templt|aa|bb}} → (run "Template:Templt" with parameters "aa" & "bb")
  • {{#expr: (5*10 + 3^2 +8)/2 }} → calculate expression: (5×10 + 32+8)/2 = 33.5
  • ~~~~ → signature     ~~~~~ → date/time (UTC)
