Starting a Page
Before starting a page, there are many helpful templates existing on the ActiveWiki that can assist you in making your page better. These pre-formatted information boxes spice pages up quite a bit!
When you think you have everything you need, just type your desired page-name into the side search box and begin editing! Thanks for editing the ActiveWiki!
Members of the ActiveWiki collaborate each week on a community-chosen topic that has been identified as needing improvement. The goal of weekly collaborations is to develop the topic in question to a respectable level on the wiki, and anyone can help! Don't be shy if you don't know anything about the topic at hand; if you have skills in wiki-formatting, taking screenshots, or getting information you have vital skills that can be very useful in collaborations!
Weekly collaborations begin each Monday.
