On creating pages[edit]

How do I create a page?[edit]

In any page, just type

[[Insert Page Title here|Insert text here]]

then click "save changes". Then click the red link that appears on the page to bring you to the page editor and you can now start working your magic.

How do I edit a page?[edit]

On the top right part of the page, press the edit button. The rest of the process is the same as creating a new page. Note that certain pages are protected, meaning they cannot be modified by anyone apart from admins and certain groups.

How do I delete a page?[edit]

Contact MPThLee or ElysiaKun in their respective user pages or in discord and ask for deletion. Deleting pages can only be done by admins at the moment, but can be expanded to different groups should the need arises.
