Because of automated spammers, we have turned off the ability to create accounts by the public. So all you have to do is contact us with your name and email address and we will sign you up. Once you have an account, you can create pages and edit whenever you like. Please don't hesitate to contact us for any reason. We want your input and involvement, whether it be great or small!

Editing basics

Start editing
To start editing a ColorWiki page, click the Edit tab at the top of the page, or the edit link at one of its edges. This brings you to the edit page: a page with a text box containing the wikitext: The editable source code from which the server produces the webpage.
Type your changes
You can just type your text. However, also using basic wiki markup (described in the next section) to make links and do simple formatting adds to the value of your contribution, and makes it more readable.
Summarize your changes
Write a short edit summary in the small field below the edit-box. You may use shorthand to describe your changes.
Preview before saving
When you have finished, click Show preview to see how your changes will look -- before you make them permanent. Repeat the edit/preview process until you are satisfied, then click Save page and your changes will be immediately applied to the article.
