[edit] Tools

A few tools to start you out:

  • Wikipedia's Editing Tutorial is a great place to start if you haven't used this kind of wiki before. For testing stuff, you can use our sandbox page, or create your own, personal, sandbox.
  • To upload a new XKCD comic to the wiki, use the "Upload file" link in the left sidebar.
  • Whenever you leave a message or comment, don't forget to sign them with ~~~~ or by using the button Button sig.png in the toolbar that appears when you're editing a page.
