Editing

Everyone and anyone can edit pages in DrumCorpsWiki — even this page! Just click the edit this page link at the top of any page (except for protected pages) if you think it needs any improvement or new information. You may want to experiment first; this way, you avoid the risk of "messing up" a real article. Head over to the sandbox, where you can try out editing till your heart's content. To test edit an existing page like this one, just copy and paste it from the article's edit page into the sandbox.

Don't be discouraged

If you run into conflicts in your first forays into editing, don't let them get you down. In any collaborative project there are clashes.

And if there's anything you don't understand — be it technical or social — and you're not sure where to look, look here: DrumCorpsWiki:Questions to find out where to go for some personal assistance.

Enjoy!
