Getting Started on Wikipedia
Adopt a User
The Adopt-a-user program is a program designed to help new and inexperienced users. Experienced Wikipedians (or adopters in this instance) can adopt newer users, mentoring them along the way as they learn about Wikipedia and its various aspects. It is hoped that this program will be able to inform new users about the ins and outs of Wikipedia and steer them away from making less-than-constructive edits or misplaced test edits. There are currently over 900 users involved in the program, and, like other Wikipedia areas, it continues to expand.
