Editing a wiki is as easy as falling out of your chair! Simply click the "edit" button at the top of any article, contribute your knowledge, and then hit save. Your changes are already reflected on the article! Talk about instant gratification. And now, here are some examples of wiki markup you can use to help you to edit more effectively.

Examples

This text is in italics
''This text is in italics''

'''''This text is in bold and italics'''''

  • You can line break without starting a new paragraph (start a new paragraph by skipping a line).
  • Don't use line breaks often.
First line<br>
Second line
  • For lists, including lists of links, make bulleted lists.
  • Second line of the list.
    • This line starts from farther right.

  • A link to an article on this wiki.
  • The text you see is the name of the article.
[[Mario Kart 64]]
MK64
  • A link to the same article, but the text you see is now different.
[[Mario Kart 64|MK64]]
MK64 Player's Page
  • A link to a website, and the text you see is the name of the site.
[http://www.mariokart64.com/ MK64 Player's Page]
  • Type this at the bottom of a page to put an article in a category along with other similar articles.
[[Category:MK64 Strats]]
  • Instead displaying text, the page you searched for will automatically redirect to the actual article.
  • Type this at the tops of pages for things that someone might search for (e.g. OoT or Zelda 64) instead of the actual name of the article.
#Redirect [[The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time]]

Creating new articles

To create a new article, search for what you want the articles name to be, and then click where it says "this exact title". Type some stuff on the page and click save page, and the article will be created.

See? Much easier than falling off a chair.
