== Creating your first article == Creating an article is just like editing one, just a little bit trickier! The first step is to check if you really need to create a new article: is the topic relevant enough? If so, is there a page that already cover it? After making sure you're not creating a duplicate (use the search bar to make sure!), type the title of your article in this text box and click the ''Create page'' button: <inputbox> type=create useve=true </inputbox> Alternatively, you can also type the article title in the regular search box and click on the first red link: [[File:Screenshot.png|center|frameless|900px]] Both options will take you to the same interface we talked about in the previous section, with a slight difference: the page is empty! You can start writing straight away, but keep these tips in mind: * Start with an introduction: if you're planning a long article, the introduction should summarise the contents of the whole article in a couple of paragraphs (less if possible). * Compare your page with similar articles: for example, if you are writing about a gender identity, you can base the structure of your article off the [[nonbinary]] article. This will help you a lot! * Use references: avoid writing your opinions or adding content that is not supported by external references. The page [[Help:References and citations]] has more information about them. * Save often! Sometimes technology fails, so don't be afraid to save the page even if it's not completed. The Nonbinary Wiki is permanently under construction! Once you click the ''Save changes...'' button, and confirm by clicking it again in the pop-up window, your page will be published! This means that anyone will be able to view and contribute to it. You can, of course, keep working on it just by clicking the ''Edit'' button! === Finding articles to create === Here's some ideas to find new topics to write about! * Red links: many pages have words that are highlighted in red instead of the usual blue. Clicking on these red links will take you to the create page for that word or expression, where you can quickly start writing about that article. Easy peasy! * Check out the list of [[Nonbinary Wiki:Requested articles about people|Requested articles about people]]! * Think about your favorite topics: do you prefer to write about identities, people, activism, culture...? You choose! Look up your topic on the wiki and, if there's no page yet, get creating! If your topic of choice already have a page, I'm sure you can improve it anyway.
