This guide is here to help new users with getting started at Golden Sun Universe. Thanks for trying to help us out!

Editing Pages[edit]

Found an article you want to edit? It's very simple to get started! To edit the page you want, all you have to do is click the Edit button at the top of the page. This will bring up a text box where you can edit the article however you need. Before saving your changes however, it's recommended that you click the Show preview button next to the save page button. This way you can make sure that you've typed everything correctly, and made no mistakes. When you are happy with your changes, click the Save page button and they will be submitted.

However, before you submit your changes, It is highly recommended that you type in a Summary of the changes you've made. Doing this will make it easier for other users to know what you did to the article. If it was only a small change like fixing a typo, then check the Minor Edit box, so users will know not to worry about it.

Creating Pages[edit]

Creating a new article is simple to do. If there is need for a new article, simply type the name of the article into the Search box at the top of the page. If it sends you directly to an an existing article, then there is already an article for it, or it has been merged into another topic. But, if the search returns a listing of pages, then there will be a link that says "Create the page "(your text)" on this wiki!" Simply click on red link for the page title, and you will be taken to a page editor where you can proceed in making the article.

Be sure that the page you are creating is a relevant subject to the wiki, otherwise a member of the staff will delete the page. Also, try to make sure that the wiki doesn't already have an article with a different name that covers the same topic, otherwise your new page is likely to become a redirect to the pre-existing page.
