The Wikipedia Signpost


From the editor

By Ral315, 14 January 2008

This week, we add a new feature: A tutorial series, intended to help new and established editors with various editing, policy, and community tips. Below is Enochlau's introduction to the series:

This week marks the first part of the Signpost tutorial series. The aim of this series is to help you use Wikipedia better: by introducing you to the features of the wiki software, the Wikipedia community and its policies and other helpful tips from experienced editors. As the name suggests, each week, we aim to provide you with a short article in a practical, tutorial format. This week, we begin with the fundamentals of editing: things that every editor should know. Please enjoy it, and let us know if you have any comments or suggestions here.

This feature was requested by multiple users over the last few months; my thanks to Enochlau and The Placebo Effect for handling the series.

Thanks for reading the Signpost.
