5 ANATOMY OF A WIKIPEDIA PAGE  Every page edit is publicly visible.  Every page edit you make is traceable to your user account.  Talk pages are Wikipedia's version of peer review.  A lot of extra information is available in the View History tab.

7 ANATOMY OF A WIKIPEDIA PAGE: EDITING  Select Edit to view wikitext markup

8 ANATOMY OF A WIKIPEDIA PAGE: EDIT SUMMARY  You can enter an explanation of your changes in the Edit summary box, which you'll find below the edit window.  If the change you have made to a page is minor, check the box "This is a minor edit."

9  You should always use the Show preview button. After you've entered a change in the edit box for the sandbox, click the Show preview. This lets you see what the page will look like after your edit, before you actually save. ANATOMY OF A WIKIPEDIA PAGE: SHOW PREVIEW

16 REFERENCES & CITATIONS: FOOTNOTES For a citation to appear in a footnote, it needs to be enclosed in "ref" tags (i.e. citation ). …or highlight your whole citation and then click the markup icon to automatically enclose your citation in ref tags.

17 On a new page, you may need to create a section usually named "Notes" or "References" near the end of the page: == Notes == or... == Notes == {{Reflist}} REFERENCES & CITATIONS: FOOTNOTES Example of a complete footnote: Name of author, [http://www.nytimes.com/article_name.html "Title of article"], ''The New York Times'', date

18 When you’re ready, add a citation to a page in your area of expertise! 1.In your sandbox, insert a reference for the book Tom Sawyer using the Worldcat entry for this book: Twain, Mark, and Paul Geiger The adventures of Tom Sawyer.

26 BASIC RULES: CONFLICT OF INTEREST If you think you have a Conflict Of Interest (COI), don’t create the article, post that someone else should create it on a related talk page.

29 Post a question on the talk page of another Wikipedia User's talk page. Ask a question to the Wikipedia Teahouse question board.Wikipedia Teahouse Resolving disputes; Wikipedia:Dispute resolution, Wikipedia:Etiquette, Wikipedia:Staying cool when the editing gets hot.Wikipedia:Dispute resolutionWikipedia:EtiquetteWikipedia:Staying cool when the editing gets hot with specific Wikipedia editing questions if you can't find what you need on ASKING FOR HELP AND RESOLVING DISPUTES
