Editing a Wikipedia article is as easy as the click of a mouse. It is a matter of adding your expertise to an article that has already been published. Thus, you do not need to write the article from scratch. You can either add information, correct errors that a previous author has made, or updating information. You will need to have knowledge of the material you are going to write about and have some understanding of how the Wikipedia site works.
How to Gain Access to Wikipedia
Your first step is to create an account with Wikipedia in order to start editing the information on the site. Registration is important because if you do not register, the site will record your IP address and it will be visible to other users. If you register, you gain access to the site and would be able to add new pages as well as images. Registering is easy. All you need to do is click at the top of the page and click on “Create Account.”
Editing the Pages
When you become a register user, simply click on the “edit this page” and you will have access to the page to edit its content. You will be redirected to a page with the original content that you are then able to edit. All you need to do here is start typing where you want to add or change the information. If you need any help it is on the left side of the page. Click on it and you are able to request the help you need.
Each section of the page also has a small edit link if you only want to edit a small part of the article. You may want to use the formatting tools at the top of the text box. In the “Edit Summary” section, you need to explain briefly what and why you have made the changes.Once you have made the edits, you can preview your changes and once you are satisfied you can save your changes.
Reliable Sources are Necessary for New Edits
If you are adding any new information, you need to add references that are reliable.If you neglect to do this, your changes will be deleted.Once you are registered you simply click on the “edit this page” and you will have access to the page to edit its content. Wikipedia gives you the detailed information on how to cite your references. All you need to do is type “WP:CITE” in the search box.
