Use common sense with this guide and read it thoroughly; your article should be based on this guide but should not be a carbon copy of it either. Source editing is greatly preferred over Visual Editor, as the latter tends to trash pages. Editing this guide in source will also help you familiarize yourself with wikitext and will allow you to see important technical functions that visual editor will omit.

  • Anything surrounded by <nowiki></nowiki> will force the software to display plain text. Remove it wherever it appears in this guide.
  • Parts of this guide intended to be filled in with your own info will be encased in single curly brackets: {example}
  • Text surrounded by <!-- and --> is a comment. These will tell the software to not include the enclosed content on the page entirely, and are present to help you as you're editing the page in source. Remove it after you have completed filling in the infobox and adding categories.
