Editing contribution types for new Wikipedia editors:[edit]

Is this your very first time? Try this:

  • Add a biographical sentence: Start with a name, a birthday, an occupation or title,  what they famously did,  and (very importantly) a citation to verify your information from a credible source(s).

How to make a citation (bibliographical reference):[edit]

1) First, click on the pencil icon on the right to begin using "Visual Editor". Visual editor makes editing easier - like writing a school paper.

2) In Visual Editor, click on the area you want to add the citation. Then click cite. If you have a website as a source, add the website to the blank area.

If you do not have a website source, click manual and follow the prompts. Then click publish. If you have questions, ask a Wikimedia coach or go to Wikipedia:Tutorial/Citing sources.

3) Then click publish.
