This page is for new editors, to help them get familier with who we are and our editing and content policies.
Why the Omnipedia
The point of the Omnipedia is to make new pages, and link to others. You can edit every page in this Omnipedia to add new information, by clicking the "Edit" link at the top.
It would be preferable if you created an account, so we know who you are ;) Note: With a screen name, you can enjoy the wiki with no ads!
You can edit a page using simple text, or a subset of HTML.
To see what other people have been changing, click the "Recent Changes" button to the left.
I'd suggest visiting the Space Quest Omnipedia, the sister project of the KQ Omnipedia, to gather inspiration to lay out a page and suggestions on what sorts of pages might be added. Feel free to discuss ideas and ask questions on the General Discussion page as well.
Some suggestions, just to get people started (please add your own!)
Remember this is not a place to post advertisements, please keep a neutral point of view.
Fan Created Material
Links to non-canon fan created material can be found under Fan Main Page. Information to fan created material should be limited to articles linked from that page, or within articles from that page.
From an existing page, you can create a link to a new page (whether it exists or not), by putting double brackets around the linked text. That will create a link to a page titled "double brackets".
Obviously, you want to link to better pages than "Double brackets" ;)
Creating New Pages
To create a new page, edit an existing page, and create a link to it. Then, click on that link and click Edit. (Or cheat, and type it into the URL bar directly, such as http://sq7.org/KQ/index.php/Double_brackets)
When you make links, make sure there's not another link there already (such as, we had Abdul Alhazred and Alhazred both). That way, we won't have to combine and do redirects.
Etc. Add your own, please! You can see the pages that people have linked to, that don't yet exist here
Also, PLEASE add a small summary (in the summary box, under edit) when editing a page. It makes it MUCH easier to see what you've changed ;)
Let us know if there is anything else you want help with.
Please also read our Canon Policy prior to editing
