How to help out

  • If you want to help but you're not sure where to start, one less daunting way than creating a new article is to try improving the various stub articles by adding content.
  • Another option may be to simply start a user blog for your username to express your opinions and insight that don't quite fit into the encyclopedia format. Creating a blog is also a good way to experiment with wiki markup and learn to build a proper article.
  • If you are prepared to create new articles, a helpful activity would be to check the list of wanted pages for frequently linked-to articles that don't exist yet. Maybe you can finally help provide information on these absent, vital articles.
  • If you need help editing, you could start with Help:Editing or the tutorial on the Central Wikia.
  • You can find a list of useful templates on Category:Templates, some of which are documented on Project:Templates.

Want to discuss stuff?

  • If you want to discuss anything specific to an article, you can use the talk pages for that article.
  • For more general discussions you can use the Discussion tab of this page, or visit the wiki's forum.

Things to do

A very helpful way to start contributing to the wiki is to help perform some site maintenance and resolve some potential problems. The following are lists (some maintained by the wiki) of possible areas that could use a little fixing up. Maybe you can help!

Articles and pages

Category:Articles needing citation
These are all articles that have been flagged as containing a questionable statement that is unsupported by a source of reference. You can help by adding that source.
Category:Articles needing wikified
These are articles that have been flagged as containing little or no wiki links to other articles (includes dead-ends). You can help by adding the necessary links.
Category:Articles using substantial data from Wikipedia
Using Wikipedia as a source is fine, but we are trying to carve our own identity here. In that regard, articles in this category rely too heavily on Wikipedia and could use a rewrite.
Category:Articles with dead external links
These articles have suffered from link rot—that is, their external links point to web pages that have expired or been moved and may need redirected to their new location or an alternate source for the information. The pages in this category have been flagged with the {{deadlink}} template, which should be placed in any article that has dead external links.
Category:Article stubs
These are articles that have been created by a user because they are a necessary subject for the wiki, but need to be expanded because they contain less than three sentences.
Category:Pages needing attention
These are pages that have been flagged as having some type of error that needs to be resolved. For more information about specific kinds of errors, see the category page.
Category:Requested articles
Like wanted pages, these are articles that need to be written. In this case, the articles are requested by users and not through red links.
Category:Stub templates
Use these to flag articles you find that can be defined as an article stub.
Special:Longpages
These pages may have sections that deserve their own articles or edited down. Keep in mind that some articles, in order to be complete, will probably always be long.
Special:Shortpages
Similar to stubs, these are articles that are very brief, but could likely be expanded.
Special:Wantedpages
These are pages that are linked to with red links, but have no actual article written for them. You can help by writing that article.

Categories

Special:Uncategorizedcategories
These categories need categorized.
Special:Uncategorizedimages
These images need categorized.
Special:Uncategorizedpages
These pages may need to be categorized.
Special:Unusedcategories
These categories are empty and should either be filled with appropriate pages or removed.
Special:Wantedcategories
These categories are requested by categorized articles and need created by adding an introduction.

Images and media

Special:FileDuplicateSearch
Duplicate files can be deleted after replacing links for the duplicate in the articles which use it.
Special:Unusedimages
These images are not being used and should either be used or removed.
Special:Upload
If you find some articles that could use an appropriate image, upload them here. Remember to add them to a category too, like [[Category:Images]].

Links

Special:Deadendpages or Dead-ends
These pages have no links and could use some.
Special:Lonelypages or Orphans
These pages don't have any links to them and could use some.

Redirects

Special:BrokenRedirects
Redirects that do not go anywhere and need redirected to the target article or removed.
Special:DoubleRedirects
This is an expensive use of redirects and should be replaced with redirects to the target article.
