Some tips for editing

If you don't see an "edit" button, you have to REGISTER. (Click "Sign In" on top right, or follow this link)
Please refer to the Wiki License Agreement for wiki license.
If you are using adblock, or script blockers, the editor may not load or your edits may not save. We can't fix this because adblock alters how the page loads. If you'd like no ads but full features, we have a vip subscription that removes all adverts without need for external blockers. Disabling adblock on the wiki to edit requires that you do a full cookie+cache clear and include tinymce in your non-blocked resources (what is tinymce, how to get it/unblock it)
If you find bad information, do not "strike through". Simply delete it and replace with proper information
All information should be added in third person, the wiki's "voice" should be neutral, not "I".
Instead of "I recommend" use "It is recommended".
Instead of "I found that" use "Testing shows that".
Respect formatting relative to other pages. The wikis have templates that have been made to make editing easy.
Shortcuts are now enabled. If you highlight text, you can use
Ctrl+e = link (to word linked)
ctrl+b = bold
ctrl+i = italics
ctrl+u = underline
alt+shift+(number) = Heading (number)

Wiki Permissions

Only logged-in users may upload files, and files cannot be overwritten except by the uploader or an Organizer
Page renames, redirects and deletion are only available to Organizers. You can contact some of them without an account or email at:
Templates may only be created by Organizers, but all users can access them to create pages.
Videos are limited to approved contributors. If you would like to add your videos to the Fextralife wikis, please contact the administrators in the Fextralife forum.
