This page is for new users and those who need a refresher at helping and editing the Gensopedia. Thank you for your help!

Editing Pages

If you've found an article you want to edit, either to add information, remove or fix erroneous information or simply to clean up prose, grammar, typos and so on. To edit a page, all you have to do is click the Edit button at the top of the page. This will bring you to a text box where you can edit the article. Before saving your changes however, it's recommended that you click the Show preview button in order to ensure no glaring errors were made. When you are happy with your changes, click the Save page button and they will be submitted.

However, before you submit your changes, It is highly recommended that you type in a Summary of the changes you've made. Doing this will make it easier for other users to know what you did to the article. If it was only a small change like fixing a typo, then check the Minor Edit box, so users will know not to worry about it.

Creating Pages

Creating a new article is also simple to do. If there is need for a new article, you can either click on an existing (red) link or simply type the name of the article into the Search box at the top of the page. If you use the Search box then there will be a link that says "Create the page "(your text)" on this wiki!" Simply click on the red link and you will be taken to a page editor where you can proceed in making the article.

Be sure that the page you are creating is a relevant subject to the wiki, otherwise a member of the staff will delete the page. Also, try to make sure that the wiki doesn't already have an article with a different name that covers the same topic otherwise your hard work might be for nothing!

When creating pages that use templates, feel free to copy existing templates from other pages. For example, when creating a new character page, copy and paste the character box, top icons box and Stars of Destiny box (if applicable) and edit the fields to reflect the character you are creating.
