So ya want to contribute to the Bitx Wiki...

It's not too hard once you get the lay of the land. As an analogy, the wiki is like your hard drive structure with directories and sub-directories. The wiki has pages that link to sub-pages. It may help you to create a multi-level outline of your thoughts and have it handy while you are editing. I create my new pages off-line and then copy/paste them into the wiki page.

Now let's get started...

At the bottom of each page are five buttons: Pages, Edit Page, New page, Add a Footer, and Add a Sidebar.

Pages - Shows a list of all pages in the wiki.
Edit Page - Allows editing of the current page.
New Page - Allows creating a new page.

Add a Footer - ? (Haven't used this one yet).
Add a Sidebar - ? (Haven't used this one yet).
