Summary
Policies define Wikipedia's fundamental principles. Guidelines recommend how to apply them and how to provide general consistency for readers.
Content – Articles should be neutral and contain only information and opinions that already exist in reliable sources.
Conduct – Be bold, and be civil. In a disagreement, assume good faith and civilly discuss issues on talk pages until a consensus can be reached.

More information
You should now have enough of an idea of the spirit of the guidelines and policies to begin editing with some confidence! For more information, check out Wikipedia:Policies and guidelines.

For the next module, you can choose to learn either VisualEditor or Wiki Markup. VisualEditor is intuitive and works like a word processor. Wiki Markup, preferred by most editors, is more versatile and allows you to edit wikicode directly.
