No matter how experienced you are, we could use your help!

If you're new to Wikipedia, have a look at the following:

  1. Introduction to Wikipedia
  2. How to edit a page
  3. Starting a new page
  4. Wikipedia syntax

If you're looking to join the project or for something to do, try the following:

  1. Add your name to the list of participants (optional)
  2. Contribute to an existing article; there is a list of articles below (or click here)
    1. Have a look at this week's collaboration (on the left).
    2. Consider starting with a topic you're familiar with, and working out from there.
    3. Every article in the project has a "to do" list with suggestions and helpful links for that article. If you can think of something the article needs, or have completed one of those tasks, feel free to edit that list!
    4. Be on the lookout for tags such as {{cleanup}} and {{unreferenced}} to guide your contributions.
  1. Start a new article!
    1. There's a list of requests below (or click here).
    2. Be sure to add {{WikiProject Georgia (U.S. state)|class=|importance=|atlanta=yes|atlanta-importance=}} to the talk page.
  2. Add an image to an article!
    1. Check the image requests below and to the left (or click here)...
    2. Or look at project articles for somewhere a picture you've taken might look good.
    3. Image uploading and licensing is difficult, so don't be afraid to ask for help!
    4. If you upload an image you've taken, licensing it under Creative Commons cc-by-2.5 (or a similar license) will reduce the chance that it will be deleted.
      1. cc-by-nc and cc-by-3.0 licenses are considered "unfree";
      2. If you upload an image, you have to swallow the fact that any person or corporation (including the institute) can (and will) use your image.
    5. Add images you upload to Category:Atlanta. If you upload them to Commons, add them to the category on both Commons and Wikipedia. (Yes, you can categorize a Commons image on Wikipedia.)

And remember, provide sources for your edits.
