Who approves accounts?

Anyone who has an admin role on the site. Account approvals are usually quick.

Who approves content?

Virtually anyone who works on the wiki! This means you and your peers can add, edit, delete information (with discretion). Our admins and long-standing editors may remove or flag an item if it doesn't meet the wiki criteria. Overall, this community is very forgiving and we will generally reach out to you on your discussion page before doing anything drastic.

What if I disagree with an edit, line of information or editor?

This is where the 'history' page can help. Once you discover the username of the person who made the edit, you can go to their 'talk' or 'discussion' page. Here, you create a 'new topic' and address the issue at hand.

What are the red-links?

Redlinks are called 'invitation' links in wiki-speak. If you encounter an invitation link, you are encountering a subject that does not have an article attached to it. The original writer thought it was pertinent to invite another user to contribute and create an article for that subject. If you see this link, consider creating an article!

When I click 'Save' or 'Publish' what should I write?

Provide a brief summary of what you added or changed. This will help future editors/writers understand where you left off, and provide context for the work they hope to add.
