LGBTQ+ Wikipedia Editing: Home

Getting Started

Activating the Visual Editor

The visual editor allows you to edit Wikipedia without using its special mark-up language, instead giving controls that are similiar to a word processor or WYSIWYG editor.

User Page & Sandbox

The user page is a Wikipedia page you can create to make a short bio. Your sandbox is where you can practice edits or build pages before they're ready to be put into live Wikipedia.

Enrolling in an Outreach Dashboard

If you're participating in an Edit-a-thon, they might have a dashboard. Enrolling in a dashboard is easy, simply follow the dashboard link provided and either log in with your Wikipedia credentials. If you haven't already created a Wikipedia account you can also do that now.
