tanasinn.info uses the same open-source software as Wikipedia. Their help pages are a more complete resource to learn how to edit the wiki, but they tend to be tl;dr.

Editing pages

You can edit most pages by clicking the 'erpe' button. You can edit specific paragraphs by clicking the '[erpe]' links in front of paragraph titles - it's often more convenient that way.

The edits you make are logged. If you are not registered, your IP will not be displayed to normal users.

Important things to remember

  • Don't worry if you get something wrong. Somebody is likely to fix it later.
  • Use the preview button.
  • Try to sign your name, address, phone number, social security number, credit card number expiration date and the fucking 3 digits behind for you comments on talk pages when it's important to know who is speaking. Don't forget the credit card details. (use ~~~~ to add a dated signature)
  • Links:
  • Titles: Start with

== Level 2 titles ==
then use
=== Level 3 titles ===
and so on. Maximum is level 6.

  • Bullet lists: start each line with a * for a bullet, with a # for a number. Use two symbols (**) to add an indentation level.
    1. You can mix both symbols
      1. And go down as many levels as you want
      2. Use the preview button.
      3. Numbers are given automatically. Don't add them yourself.
  • Upload a picture: use the "Upload file" link on the left of the page.
    • You can give your file a more meaningful name when uploading. Image:FUCKING CAT.jpg is easier to undersand than Image:1147674449393.jpg.
    • PNG files may not be resized properly, and resized GIF files are not animated.
      • Picture usage
What you type What you recieve

  • Use the preview button.
  • When you leave a message to an user's talk page, they will be notified.

Tables

Tables are a bitch to get right. You can use HTML formating or wiki formating. Whatever you do, make sure it will be easy to edit and add comments. Use this WP page for help.
