Writing an article
- You can write an article from scratch, or you can paste it from another application. You can paste by typing 'Ctrl C', or clicking the 'paste as plain text' button, or by clicking the 'paste from word' button. Which is best will depend on the application you are pasting from and how complex the formatting is. Try them all and see which gives the best result.
- At the end of your article, click the 'insert signature' button, and your profile will then appear at the top of the article when you save it.
- Keep your formatting simple. Plain text, bulleted lists, numbered lists and headings.
- Save your article regularly - then if you have a problem you can recover previous versions from the article history (click on the 'See full history' at the top of the article).
- Articles should not be promotional or biased. To stay impartial, ask yourself what someone else would write about the subject.
