    How to Contribute to Wikipedia - Contributing to Wikipedia

    (Page 4 of 4 )

    Read over your entry two or three times to make sure it sounds the way you want it to. Also check your information for accuracy, and to be sure all the pertinent facts are there. Look for spelling errors and double-check any words you aren’t absolutely sure about.

    It’s always important to be aware of the fact that Wikipedia does not tolerate advertising or promotion in any way. That’s why you must always remain objective and factual -- nothing else. Share no opinions and offer no prompts. For example, “people should by products on this web site because it’s very reliable” would be completely unacceptable. Deliver information, not advice.

    When you’re quite positive that you’ve created an objective, professional, well-written Wikipedia entry, simply hit “save page” at the bottom. Your entry will appear on Wikipedia almost immediately. Congratulations! Your work is still not done, however.

    Seeing your entry appear on Wikipedia does not always mean it will remain there. Keep a watchful eye on your entry over the next two weeks. If it is not recommended for deletion within this time, it’s safe to assume you have successfully created a lasting page on one of the world’s most popular web sites.
