How to contribute to the Wiki

  • There are on-going projects you can participate in to help grow and improve the Wiki.
  • You can create a new article. This might be an article about a subject you already feel knowledgable about. Although the process might seem complex, it is rewarding to share your skills. Other users who learn from you will be so grateful!
  • Consider researching a topic or location that is not currently in the Wiki that you would like to learn more about. Research the topic and add what you learned to the Wiki.
  • Add information to an existing article by editing it. Be bold! Dive right in and add what you know! This button in any article leads to a list of needed information or projects.
