Holy shizint, this is so cool thank you.
If you're new to creating and/or editing wiki pages, contributing to PortlandWiki might look somewhat intimidating at first glance. Particularly if such geeky-sounding terms as [[Wiki markup]], [[Wikitext]], [[CamelCase]],<ref>[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CamelCase CamelCase]</ref> [[User talk]], [[Namespace]]<ref>[http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Namespace Manual:Namespace]</ref> and so on come off sounding like what robots babble to each other when they're talkin' dirty.<ref>[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WTF%3F_OMG!_TMD_TLA._ARG! Wikipedia:WTF? OMG! TMD TLA. ARG!]</ref>

Never fear! There's no need for you to learn how to abuse language like a potty-mouth android. Here are a few links to resources that can help you get started:
+
 
+
* [[Help:Editing]]
+
:Again, are you new to wiki writing? Maybe PortlandWiki's [[Help:Editing|Wiki Page Basics]] (also known as [[Help:Editing]]) is the best place to begin.
+
 
+
* [[PortlandWiki talk:Community Portal|Community Portal]]
+
:A good place to ask for help from one of PortlandWiki's volunteer maintainers is the [[PortlandWiki talk:Community Portal|Community Portal Discussion]] page. Or, if you prefer to ask a specific user individually, you can leave a note on her or his user talk page and she or he will receive it upon logging into PortlandWiki.

+
* [[Monday Meets]]
+
:Want to learn more about PortlandWiki from actual living humans? Come to our next [[Monday Meets|wiki edit meet-up]] (also known as [[Monday Meets]]). Check out the [[Monday Meets|schedule]] for upcoming times and locations.
