In order to make sure our wiki stays as clean and as nice as possible there are a few guidelines to ensure consistence on all pages.  This will also help your page look prettier as well.

#REDIRECT[[Help: Editing]]
 
+
*To upload an image, hit the "Upload File" link on the left side of the screen, then use the code <nowiki>[[Image:Imagename.extension|thumb|right|Description of Image]]</nowiki> to put the image in your page.
+
*To have a line end and the next line start, type <nowiki><br></nowiki>  To have that happen multiple times, resulting in skipped lines, just type <nowiki><br></nowiki> multiple times.
+
*Use * before each line to use bullets in your article and use # for automatic numbering (starting from 1)
+
*To make a word on your page link to an article with its name, write <nowiki>[[word being linked]]</nowiki> i.e. if I mentioned Pikachu on this page, i could write <nowiki>[[Pikachu]]</nowiki> to make it a link to the Pikachu page. Links are case sensitive.
+
*A red link means the page does not exist yet.  Click on it in order to make a page on that topic.
+
*Do not create links to pages that do not exist unless you plan on immediately making that page.
+
*Do not create pages that are not linked from any page.  A good way to make a page is first create the link from another page, then create the page.
+
*There are 10 categories on the Slugwiki:
+
#Slugs
+
#Slugfest Culture
+
#Slugfest Government
+
#Slugfest Places
+
#Hall Feeds
+
#Projects
+
#MIT Culture
+
#MIT Places
+
#MIT Slang
+
#Class Material
+
When you create a page, it will probably somewhat fit into one of those topics.  Add the article to that group by typing <nowiki>[[Category: CategoryName]]</nowiki> on the bottom of the page.  To make this article in the Slugfest Culture group, I would type <nowiki>[[Category: Slugfest Culture]]</nowiki>.
