How To Help

1. Introduction

Welcome to the Pleaseland Wiki. This Wiki is a source of information easily accessable to all players on Pleaseland. We are always in the process of expanding and developing this Wiki, so that everybody is up-to-date with all the information and aware of the latest chances.


1.1 What is a Wiki?

A Wiki is a website that is easy to access for all users of the internet. It's a source of information that is easy and quick. The main objective of a Wiki is to be informative to everybody and to share information and resources to everybody that a Wiki is directed at. The wonderful thing about a Wiki is that everybody can share their knowledge with other people.


2. How can I help?

There are two ways of helping us;

  1. Helping as a regular member
  2. Being part of the Wiki Team

2.1 Helping as a regular member

As a regular member on Wikidot, you can easily help us with the following things;

  • Adding new pages and writing new articles.
  • Adding new content to existing pages.
  • Correcting grammar on pages that require it.
  • Keeping the information up-to-date

Adding new pages and writing new articles

One way to help us is by adding new pages and writing new articles. Everybody, who is signed up on Wikidot, has the ability to create pages and write new articles. Creating new pages is a lot of work and if you happen to have some times and you wish to contribute to the Wiki, creating new pages to help us would be a greate relieve on our shoulders.

How do I add a new page?
Go to a page that doesn't exist yet, such as http://pleaseland.wikidot.com/ThisIsGoingToBeMyNewPage. You will have the option to create a new page if there isn't a page on that link yet.

How do I add a new page to a category, such as Guides or Instances?
Go to a page that doesn't exist yet, but instead of making the link for example ThisIsGoingToBeMyNewPage, add "Guides:" or "Instance:" in front of it. So if you wish your link to be ThisIsGoingToBeMyNewPage, http://pleaseland.wikidot.com/guides:ThisIsGoingToBeMyNewPage

Adding new content to existing pages.

Another way to help us is by adding new content to existing pages. If you happen to have a fair knowledge about a certain subject and you don't see any information on a page where you think it would be good to add it on, don't hesitate from adding it. We try to cover every possible subject, but there can always be things that are missing.

How can I add new content to existing pages?
Go to the bottom of the page you wish to edit and click on "Edit." A new edit box should appear in which you can see the source of a page and add your new content. You can then click on "Preview" to see a preview of the page with your current additions, you can click on "Save" to save the page and you can click on "Cancel" to cancel editing.

Correcting grammar on pages that require it.

Yet another way to help us is by correcting grammar on pages that require it. If you happen to see a grammar or a spelling mistake, correct it if you can and ofcourse if you want to.

Keeping the information up-to-date

The last way for you to help us as a regular member is by keeping the pages up-to-date. If you see information that requires an edit, due to recent changes to the server, please edit the page and make sure the page is up-to-date. We greatly appreciate it if you could do that for us.


2.2 Being part of the Wiki Team

Another way to greatly help us is becoming part of the Wiki Team. You can find more information about become part of the Wiki Team here.
