Wiki discussion tab.png

If you have a question, concern, or comment related to improving a Wikipedia article, you can put a note on that article's talk page.


You get to the talk page by clicking the "Talk" tab at the top of the article. If the tab shows up in red, it just means no one has commented yet; feel free to start a discussion.


When you start a new discussion topic, put it at the bottom of the talk page. The best way to do this is by clicking the "New section" tab at the top of the page. This allows you to enter a new section heading and your comments.


If you are responding to someone else's remarks, put your comment below theirs. You can do this by clicking on the "[edit]" link to the right of that section's heading and then scrolling down.


Always sign your comments by typing ~~~~. This will automatically insert your user name and a link to your personal talk page, along with the time you saved the page. You can choose how your signature looks if you have created a free account. If you are not logged in, then a number (IP address) representing your internet connection is used as your signature.
