Revision as of 14:05, 1 August 2012

Welcome to Explain XKCD - the wiki! As you've probably noticed, things are a bit different from the blog. But feel free to try things out!

Tools

A few tools to start you out:

  • Wikipedia's Editing Tutorial is a great place to start if you haven't used this kind of wiki before.
  • If you look to the left of your screen, you can see "Upload file" - that's where to start if you want to add a new XKCD comic to the wiki!
  • If you just want to test a feature, you can do that at the Sandbox or at your own, personal, sandbox at Special:Mypage/Sandbox.
  • Use Special:Random if you just want to see something cool that's already here.
  • Special:SpecialPages has a list of the other "Special" pages that do cool things.
  • Sign your posts (on talk pages and on this page) with ~~~~ or by using this button (click to view) in the editing toolbar.
  • Check out Explain XKCD:Copyrights before bringing anything other than the comics here - you don't want to get in trouble by mistake!
