Getting Started with Editing
- Register an account (Note: You are to create a personal account; on most Wikipedias you can't register as your organization.)
- Check that the Visual Editor is turned on by ensuring "Temporarily disable the visual editor..." is unchecked in your preferences on your main language Wikipedia (here on the English Wikipedia). (Visual Editor allows you to use a feature called "Citoid" which uses an API to get preformatted reference information (see the documentation for more details).)
- Pick a strategy in the "How to participate" section
- Whenever you make an edit to Wikipedia, make sure to include the hashtag #1Lib1Ref in the edit summary.
Note that instructions 1 and 2 default to English Wikipedia. Change the language to your preferred Wikipedia, though note that accounts are global.
