* Inserting as a thumbnail: <nowiki>[[Image:Picture.jpg|200px|thumb|left|Text that appears below the picture]]</nowiki> (You can choose whatever width you want in place of the "200px" part, but 200 pixels seems to be about right for most displays.

* Moving a page: Click on the "Move" tab at the top (second from the right), and follow the instructions on the next page. Should only really be done under one of the following circumstances:

** The article's title is misspelled
 +
** The title is a really poor and non-descriptive or misleading one
 +
** Agreement from other users

* Reverting vandalism: Click on the "History" tab at the top (third from the right), then click on the date and time of the last good version. Once you've found it, click edit, don't make any changes to the text in the boxes (except maybe a note in the summary box that you're reverting a vandal) and click save.

* Minor edits: As a rule, tick the box reading "This is a minor edit" when you're fixing spelling, grammar, code or formatting, and leave it unchecked if you're making any serious changes to the content.
