Helpful Hints for Editors
  • To assign an article to a category put at the beginning of the code [[Category:<yourcategory>]]. This ensures that our wiki will be organized.
  • Make Pages for recently leaked builds!
  • Help us to organize by placing pages in their right category. Example: Windows 1.0 should go in the category "Microsoft Windows"
  • Search for articles that can be improved. The stub category is a nice place to start
