These pages are organized as a [[wikipedia:Wiki|Wiki]], which means that anybody can change them or add new pages.  You don't have to have a user name to change them, but we'd prefer that you take the time to [[Special:UserLogin|create your own account and log in]] so that your edits can be attributed - this way they will carry more weight and are less likely to be questioned or reverted.

We have deliberately chosen [[wikipedia:MediaWiki|MediaWiki]] for this service, since the interface is almost identical with [[wikipedia:Wikipedia|Wikipedia]].  Wikipedia has a large number of help and tutorial pages, and the basics will also apply to this wiki.  See below if you have problems.
