How do I create an article?
You may first try editing existing articles, to get a feel for writing and for using the mark-up language;
You may also search WikiChiro first, to make sure that an article does not already exist on the project, perhaps under a different title. If the article already exists, feel free to make any constructive edits you feel are necessary.
There are three main ways to create a new article.
- If you read an already existing page and find a red link (that's a word written in red, underlined) to the topic you want to write about, click on the red link. It will open an empty page. Add text, then save. That's it!
- If you can not find any "red link", go to a related article, and edit this page. In the page, add the title of the page you want to create, with two brackets around. Like this: Title Of My Article. Save the page. The article will contain a red link. Click on the link to add content to the new page.
- If you are familiar with URL, you may edit the URL in your browser to give the name of the future article;
Be careful of respecting other people copyrights. If you copy some contents from Wikipedia, consider reading meta:Wikipedia first. And then PLEASE add the following to the bottom of your article: ATTRIB surrounded by double "curly" brackets, "Template:" and then ""
Please gather references to use as sources of your information. List references to your sources in the article;
