How to contribute to VDC

A simple editing tutorial is available at Help:Editing. Please note that it is a work in progress; you may find the links below to be more comprehensive.

Check out the Wiki To Do List for ideas on some areas where you can contribute.




Special pages

Many useful functions are available from the list of Special Pages.


Template pages

Templates are an easy and fast way to apply a uniform structure to pages and frequently quoted pieces of information. This is especially useful for marking articles as being eligible for Speedy Deletion, which can be done by adding them to the top of pages in accordance with the Wikipedia Deletion Policy.

There are currently several available templates for use: Template:Delete, Template:Deletebecause, Template:Deleteagain, Template:Nonsense, Template:Shortcut, Template:Stub, Template:Wrongtitle, Template:Cleanup and Template:Spoiler.


MediaWiki and Wikipedia resources

The VDC uses MediaWiki, an open source engine licensed under the GNU GPL. The largest array of resources for learning how to use MediaWiki can be found at the largest wiki using the engine, Wikipedia.
