Helpful hints for editors
  • Read the wiki guidelines! That page tells you how builds should be organised and other helpful information about the wiki's rules.
  • Make pages for recently leaked builds!
  • Help us to organize by placing pages in their right category (in 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.
