A short video about that "Edit" button and what it can do when you are bold!
As a new contributor, you may feel a little overwhelmed by the sheer size and scope of this site. No new user can understand everything at first, and it's acceptable to use common sense as you go about your editing. Nordic Larp Wiki not only allows you to create, revise, and edit articles—it wants you to do so (see be bold)! You just need to remember that while there are many protocols, perfection is not required, since Nordic Larp Wiki is a work in progress. Collaborative editing means that incomplete or poorly written first drafts can evolve over time into excellent articles.
The goal of a Nordic Larp Wiki article is to create a comprehensive and neutrally written summary of existing mainstream knowledge about a topic: Nordic Larp Wiki does not publish original research. An encyclopedia is, by its nature, a tertiary source that provides a survey of information already published in the wider world. So we require that information be verifiable in reliable external sources. Ideally, all information should refer to reliable outside sources, using citations. When adding content and creating new articles, an encyclopedic style with a formal tone is important. Instead of essay-like, argumentative, or opinionated writing, Nordic Larp Wiki articles should have a straightforward, just-the-facts style.
