Editing basics

Start editing
To start editing a page, click the edit tab at top of page. This brings you to the edit page: a page with a text box containing the wikitext: the editable source code from which the server produces the webpage. If you just want to experiment, please do so in the sandbox, not here.
Type your changes
You can just type your text. However, also using basic markup to make links and do simple formatting adds to the value of your contribution.

These are short instructions. For more information see Meta.Wikimedia

If this terse instruction set is unclear or inadequate, users are requested to fix it. Thanks.
