The basic unit of any Wiki is the page. To make additions or changes to a page choose "edit" from the top of the page and make the desired additions or changes. Then choose "Show preview" from the bottom of the page.You will see two boxes. The top box will show what the page will look like with your additions or changes and, the bottom box has the source where you can make additional changes if necessary. In the Summary box at the bottom of the edit page indicate the type of changes you made or its name if you added an article. When satisfied that your additions or changes are o.k. choose "Save page".

The "history" at the top of a page has links to all versions of the page with its summary to help identify it. This makes it possible to revert to an earlier version of the page if someone adds nonsense.

To add a new article to Current Chance News, choose a name for your article. This can be the name used by the news media or a name chosen by you. Then from the Main Page choose "Current Chance News". Using "edit" add the the name for your article to the list of the previous names using the same format as the previous names. Note that we do not put a period at the end of the name. Then check it with "Show Previous" and when it is o.k. choose "Save Page".

Now click on the name of your article and a blank page will come up. Using edit, add your comments to the page. Use "Show preview" to check your article. Put the name of the article in the Summary box. When you are satisfied with it choose "Save page".

If you find a chance article and don't want to write about it you can mention this in the Main Page "discussion" and perhaps someone else will write about it.

For further help in editing a page, including how to add pictures, links, special characters, etc., choose "Help" from the side box or click here.
