Editing a Wiki page is very easy. Simply click on the "'''Edit this page'''" tab at the top (or the edit link on the right or bottom) of a Wiki page. This will bring you to a page with a text box containing the editable text of that page. '''''If you want to experiment, please do so in our [[{{ns:4}}:sandbox|sandbox]], not here. You could open the [[{{ns:4}}:sandbox|sandbox]] in a separate window or tab to be able to see both this text and your tests in the sandbox.'''''

Starting a new Wiki article is also easy.  Simply type into your address page <nowiki>http://wiki.hattrick.org/</nowiki>''(whatever your topic is)'' and then follow the same instructions as for [[Help:Editing|editing]].
Type away, write a short [[Hattrick:Edit summary|edit summary]] on the small field below the edit-box.  You may use shorthand to describe your changes, as described in the [[Hattrick:Edit summary legend|legend]], and when you've finished, press [[Hattrick:Show preview|preview]] to see how your changes will look. Then press "Save".  Depending on your system, pressing "Enter" while the edit box is not active (when there is no typing cursor in it) may have the same effect as pressing the "Save" button. Also, please do not vandalise the information on {{ns:4}}.
You can also click on the "'''Discussion'''" tab (or the "'''Discuss this page'''" link) to see the corresponding [[Hattrick:Talk page|talk page]], which contains comments about the page from other Hattrick users. Click on the "'''+'''" tab (or "'''Edit this page'''") to add a comment.
You can read the list of  all the help pages [http://wiki.hattrick.org/Special:Allpages?title=Special%3AAllpages&from=&namespace=12 here].
==The wiki markup==
You can read about how to edit pages and the tags in out [[Help:Editing]] page.
'''Note''': ''The more up to date version of the MediaWiki User's Guide (editing overview) can be found
[http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki_User%27s_Guide:_Editing_overview here].''
==Creating Articles about Your Own Team==
Every user within the Wiki-environment has a personal webpage (just click on a user's name, for example yours). So this seems to be the perfect place for people to put the info about their own clubs, teams, players.
An example for my user name:
[[User:Cryout]] -- this is my user page
[[User:Cryout/Team]] -- this is for my team details
[[User:Cryout/Players]] -- this is for my players
[[User:Cryout/Martin Mateev]] -- my favourite player
New articles under anyone's user name are created with this wiki-code: <nowiki>[[User: USERNAME / NEWPAGE]]</nowiki>, where ''USERNAME'' is a user name and ''NEWPAGE'' is the name of what you want to add information about. These two are separated by a slash ('''/''').
You can see how easy it is to keep unessential information in a private namespace.
Then again, if your player, for example, is indeed great and significant in Hattrick, then he deserves a normal and serious article. Here is an example: [[Bob Sunesson]].
Hopefully, this can provide a good level of organisation and a way to keep the HT-encyclopedia somewhat clean of information that is not essential to the community. If you want to comment on this guideline, please leave a message [[Help_talk:Contents|here]].
Note: The above policy is still under discussion.
