|Welcome to the Quick Start tutorial. This is a simple guide to using and editing the Exalted Wiki.
What is a Wiki?
A wiki is a website that is written collaboratively by its readers. Anyone, including you, with access to an Internet-connected computer can edit it. This makes it easy to add further information, cross-references, or citations to the wiki. Wikipedia is a prime example of what motivated users can create.
A wiki is essentially an archive for articles - from original material (e.g. new charms or fan fiction) to encyclopaedic reference items. You can start browsing the wiki by selecting a subject on the Main Page, and following any link to a subsequent subject. All Exalted Wiki articles are interlinked — that is, they have inline hyperlinks to other articles on related subjects. Alternatively, you can use the search box that can be found on every page. If you see a link that is colored dark green, that is a link to an article that has not been created yet.
How do I create an account?
To edit and add articles to the Exalted Wiki you need to be a registered user. Don't worry, it's free, quick and very easy.
What can I do here?
Don't be afraid to edit - anyone can edit almost any page, and we encourage you to do so! Find something that can be improved, either in content, grammar or formatting, and fix it.
Also, please note: When referencing official content from one of the Sourcebooks, please reference the material rather than reproducing it. Errata and/or book/page references are appreciated. Do not post the contents of the books themselves. No entry should diminish, even slightly, the necessity of anyone owning the book that is being referenced.
Don't worry about breaking the wiki. You can't. Anything you do can be fixed, improved upon or rolled back later. So read on and learn more about how to edit articles.
