Please follow the Fourfold Way

Welcome to the Wiki. Here are a few notes to help orient you to our ways of working. Especially please do use the preview, and leave a short note in the summary field.

The Fourfold way is the basic set of steps used for all edits.

Step 1. Click the edit tab to start making your edits.

Step 2. Enter a note in the edit Summary so others know what you have done. A summary might be as simple as "fix typos", "add links" or "add photo". Not leaving a summary is very bad form.

Step 3. Show preview to check your changes. If it isn't right, go back and do more editing. Every time you save, you create a version of the page that will be saved forever. Unnecessary saves create unnecessary load when backing up the database. Be kind to the server and preview before saving.

Step 4. When you have checked everything, click Save page.

Also, we discourage people from writing their own biographies on the principle that "this isn't MySpace". Of course, you are free to use your User page as you like. Let me know if you have any questions. Agricola 12:35, 17 August 2008 (CEST)
