From The TMS Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

One of the most important roles anyone volunteer can take on is editing the TMS Wiki. The primary goal of our organization is to provide individuals with the information they need to recover from chronic pain. Creating, writing, and editing wiki pages on a wide variety of TMS-related issues ensures that we continue to best serve our visitors, and help people take control of their recoveries. Any one and everyone can be a wiki editor. All it takes is signing up for a wiki account and clicking on the edit button.

Requesting an Account

The first step to becoming a wiki editor is to request a wiki account. Wiki accounts allow users to edit pages, and it is different from a forum account. To request a wiki account go to Request Account, and fill out the form. An administrator will approve your account in a day or two, at which time you will be able to edit wiki pages.

Starting to Edit

Editing wiki pages can seem daunting at first, but it is not as scary as it seems. We have several guides and tutorials to help new editors get the hang of things. If you are interested in learning how to edit, check out the tutorial. It will walk you through how to edit pages, and teach you other conventions we use on the site. If you ever have any questions feel free to post it in our forum.

Remember, our website is designed in a way for any one to edit. You cannot break it, and any mistake that you can make, can be fixed with just a couple clicks of the mouse.
