New on Wikipedia?[edit]

First: welcome to Wikipedia!

Before you start writing, please keep the following thoughts in mind:

  • add to Wikipedia only knowledge that is suitable for an encyclopedia
  • add only material that is available under a free license or describe knowledge in your own words
  • describe the knowledge from a neutral point of view
  • add references and sources where the information can be found
  • do not write about your own organisation nor about yourself, a family member or your boss
  • do not describe new theories, new insights that have not been published widely
  • look at comparable subjects as examples of how it is done
  • use headers to structure an article
  • use internal links (links to other articles on Wikipedia in that language)
  • do not use links inline in the text, but only as reference or at the bottom of a page
  • avoid qualifications like "the best", "the most", "great" and write time specific (not: "last year", "coming month", etc., but: "on 10 April 2016")

Please start writing in your sandbox. The link to your personal sandbox you can find on top of every page (if you are logged in).
