Wikijunior:Ancient Civilizations/Contributing

Be Bold


The Wikijunior community encourages users to be bold in updating articles. Wikis develop faster when people fix problems, correct grammar, add facts, improve the style, and so on. We want everyone to be bold: it's okay.

Also, of course, others here will edit what you write. Don't take it personally. They, like all of us, just want to make Wikijunior as good as it can possibly be.

Please, if you can contribute to this book, do so. Many sections are in need of cleanup and complete rewrites. You can work on almost anything including this page, but if you want to make some significant changes please bring them up on the discussion page. New articles about additional Ancient Civilizations are welcome; see the section Create or request an article.



When working on this project, remember that it's aimed at children between the ages of 8 and 12.

Try to restrict discussion to the main discussion page so that people can actually see your message without having to check specific pages.

For more information about how to write excellent articles for Wikijunior see the Style Guide.
