|About the Book|
Wikipedia is one of the worlds most trafficked websites, read by hundreds of millions of people in over 200 languages, with coverage of politics, science, the arts, technology, geography, pop culture, history, and more. Anyone can add a new article, or edit existing content, but Wikipedia is poorly understood and can be daunting to non-technical contributors. How Wikipedia Works explains how this vast, collaborative site functions, condensing thousands of hyperlinks of documentation into an easy to use handbook for current or aspiring editors. It covers the basics-such as navigating, searching, and editing-and dives deeply into difficult topics like advanced syntax, editor etiquette, and administrative policies and processes. The veteran Wikipedians behind this book share the secrets and profound success of this incredible, diverse, and unique community.
