Wikipedia Writing and Editing: The Basics

Wikipedia is a priceless resource, a well of information, accessible to millions across the globe. One of the defining features of the site is that anyone can edit or create a Wikipedia page of information making the body of knowledge open to debate and an unbiased universal voice of reason. Becoming a part of this asset to human existence is very simple.

Create an account

You can edit a page without creating an account, but you may not create an article from scratch without one. Creating a Wikipedia account takes just minutes and will allow you to revise any page that is not locked and also create brand new content on any subject. If a page is locked, there is an icon located in the top right corner of the page. These pages may still be edited, but only with approval from an employee. This is done when pages are controversial or are susceptible to “editing wars.”

Create unbiased and readable content

Make sure to use proper grammar, proof read your work, and follow Wikipedia’s style guide to ensure your writing is clear and accessible to most audiences. Like wise, you must always back up your information from credible sources, such as scientific studies or essays from sites that end with .edu or .gov to stay clear of spreading false or unconfirmed knowledge. Beware, that your writing is at the scrutiny of the unforgiving internet that will not tolerate undocumented information for very long.

After you are done making your edits or producing original content, make sure to look at the finished product to avoid formatting errors. If you run into problems that Wikipedia’s helpful guides do not answer, just click on the help button to receive thoughtful answers from people standing by to help.

Whether you are doing small edits or writing whole pages, you can feel proud to contribute to an ever-growing, collective body of unbiased knowledge. Happy writing!
