Introduction to contributing to Wikipedia
Wikipedia is a freeencyclopedia, written collaboratively by the people who use it. Since 2001, it has grown rapidly to become the world's largest reference website, with 6.3 million articles in English attracting billions of views every month. For a more detailed account of the project, see About Wikipedia.
How you can contribute
Don't be afraid to editAnyone can edit almost every page; just find something that can be improved and make it better! You can add content (using references to support your claims), upload free-to-use images, correct spelling and grammar mistakes, improve prose to make it more readable, or any number of other tasks. It's normal for new contributors to feel a little overwhelmed by all of our policies, but don't worry if you don't understand everything at first; it's fine to use common sense as you edit, and if you accidentally mess something up, another editor can always fix or improve it later. So go ahead, edit an article and help make Wikipedia the world's best information source!
Suggest improvements – Each article also has a "Talk" page, where you can suggest improvements and corrections to the article.
Donate – Wikipedia is free to use and edited entirely by volunteers, but it relies on donations to keep the servers running. Please consider donating to help fund the project's maintenance and development costs.

Why not try out the editor right now?
You can test out how editing feels by editing one of the "sandbox" test pages below:
