[edit] Starting a New Article

To start an article (where one doesn't yet exist), simply type the name of the intended article into the Search box (located on the left-side menu bar). Under Search Results, you will see the statement, "You searched for" and the name of your article in red. Click on that red link and an edit field labeled Editing and your article name will load. Start working on your article within that field area. (Don't forget to use the handy wikitag buttons on the top of the field.)


[edit] Quick Start Templates

Please also review the main Help page for a list of quick-start templates that you can paste into your article, to help format it to the standard required here at BattleTechWiki.


[edit] Canoncity

While the policy on canoncity is still being developed at BattleTechWiki, please refrain from amending exisiting articles by not inserting fan-fictional material into the article without the proper identification. One possible idea would be to create a sub-section that introduces the fan-fiction within the relevant area of the article, and then provide a reference to where more information could be had.
