What to expect[edit]

No Wikipedia editing experience is necessary. If you are unfamiliar with Wikipedia, you can get started by watching these great Beginner Training Videos or with this this training module. Friendly volunteers will be on hand to help answer your editing questions. Refreshments will be provided. Everyone is welcome.

Please set up an account before the event if at all possible. Very few details are needed: a Username, password, and I'd recommend giving your email, if only to be reminded of your password when you forget it.
