Hello visitor, welcome to the Dresden Files Wiki! This is meant to be a short intro to help you dive in to Wiki-editing and contributing to the quality of our pages.
How do I edit properly?
- Switching to Source Editor is a great way to become a better editor. Switch here!
- See the Manual of Style for help on how you can keep within the existing style of pages and properly source your info!
Where can I help the most?
- Category:References needed contains many pages that have unsourced content; if you like scouring through the books for pertinent info, then you can help by adding references!
- Category:Page stubs contains short pages that need to be totally rewritten; if you like writing, this is for you!
- Category:Section stubs contains pages with bare sections that just need help in one or two areas; if you want a quick and easy job, check these pages out!
- If you’re more of a menial-minded person, check out Special:UncategorizedFiles and Special:Disambiguations and start adding categories / fixing links!
- Are you an artist? If so, here is a list of imageless pages you can add to!
What can I edit?
A better question would be; what can’t you edit? Most every page is freely editable!
- Only logged-in users can edit most categories and templates, and some of the more delicate templates may only be edited by admins.
- The Main Page is off-limits, but suggestions are welcome!
Who do I go to for help?
- Special:ListAdmins contains a list of Administrators; our Administrators are friendly and more than happy to help!
- The Wiki Business Category & Q&A Category are also good places to ask for help from your fellow editors.
There’s many other things you can do on the Dresden Files Wiki. They include:
- Talking in .
- Commenting on pages and blogs.
- Writing your own blogs, like this!
- Talking to users via their Message Wall.
- And more!
AfterwordContributors are always appreciated, so even if you make a mistake while editing, do not worry too much; there are others who can help you to contribute the best way possible.
Of course, you should still try to avoid mistakes where possible ;)
