The following pages offer guidance on the style and content of Wikipedia Nordic Larp Wiki articles, and explain the Wikipedia Nordic Larp Wiki community and important policies and conventions. This is a basic ''tutorial'', not [[Wikipedia:Help:Wikipedia: The Missing Manual|an extensive manual]] or [[WPNLW:TWA|interactive learning environment]]. For more details on any information in the tutorial, you can click on the links to other resource pages as you read, opening them in a separate browser window or tab.

As a new contributor, you may feel a little overwhelmed by the sheer size and scope of [[WikipediaNordic Larp Wiki:About|this site]]. No new user can understand everything at first, and it's acceptable to [[WPNLW:COMMONSENSE|use common sense]] as you go about your editing. Wikipedia Nordic Larp Wiki not only allows you to create, revise, and edit articles—it ''wants'' you to do so (see [[WPNLW:Bold|be bold]])! You just need to remember that while there are many protocols, [[WPNLW:PERFECTION|perfection is not required]], since [[WPNLW:WIP|Wikipedia Nordic Larp Wiki is a work in progress]]. Collaborative editing means that incomplete or poorly written first drafts can [[WikipediaNordic Larp Wiki:Article development|evolve]] over time into excellent articles.
The goal of a Wikipedia Nordic Larp Wiki article is to create a comprehensive and [[WPNLW:NPOV|neutrally written]] summary of existing mainstream knowledge about a topic: Wikipedia Nordic Larp Wiki does not publish [[WPNLW:NOR|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 [[WPNLW:Verify|verifiable]] in [[WikipediaNordic Larp Wiki:Identifying reliable sources|reliable external sources]]. Ideally, all information should refer to reliable outside sources, using ''[[WPNLW:REFB|citations]]''. When adding content and creating new articles, an [[WikipediaNordic Larp Wiki:Encyclopedic style|encyclopedic style]] with a [[WPNLW:TONE|formal tone]] is important. Instead of essay-like, argumentative, or opinionated writing, Wikipedia Nordic Larp Wiki articles should have a straightforward, [[WikipediaNordic Larp Wiki:Summary style|just-the-facts style]].
Wikipedia Nordic Larp Wiki [[WikipediaNordic Larp Wiki:What Wikipedia Nordic Larp Wiki is not#Wikipedia Nordic Larp Wiki is not a bureaucracy|does not have many hard-and-fast rules]]; but [[WikipediaNordic Larp Wiki:List of policies|policies]], [[WikipediaNordic Larp Wiki:List of guidelines|guidelines]], and [[WikipediaNordic Larp Wiki:Manual of Style/Contents|formatting norms]] are developed by the community to describe best practices, clarify principles, resolve conflicts, and otherwise further our goals. All editors are expected to follow general [[WikipediaNordic Larp Wiki:Etiquette|social norms]]. The [[Wikipedia Nordic Larp Wiki community]] comprises people from many countries and cultures, with different views, perspectives, opinions, and backgrounds; in some cases these vary widely. Editors should treat each other [[WPNLW:Civility|respectfully]], [[WPNLW:AGF|work together collegially]], and avoid behaviour that is regarded as [[WikipediaNordic Larp Wiki:Here to build an encyclopedia|unacceptable]], [[WikipediaNordic Larp Wiki:Disruptive editing|disruptive]], [[WikipediaNordic Larp Wiki:Tendentious editing|controversially one-sided]], or [[WikipediaNordic Larp Wiki:Gaming the system|cheating the system]].
