New to wikis?

  • In case you need some help with editing pages, Wikipedia's "How to edit a page" article is a great source of information.
  • Transclusion: Some pages display text from another page by using a special markup to transclude it. Editing the text must be done on the page from which the text is transcluded.
    • For example, when editing the page Character Types you'll see {{:Colonist}} which is markup text that automatically copies text from the page Colonist.
    • To learn more about transclusions, see Wikipedia:Transclusion.
