Week 140: Wikipedia's Excellent Adventure

Wikipedia editing can be far from intuitive, and sometimes even intimidating. In addition to learning its markup language or its Visual Editor, there seems to be endless catalog of policies and guidelines that may make newcomers think twice before getting started. The Wikipedia Adventure changes that.

In less than one hour, The Wikipedia Adventure takes newbies on a journey through all the Wiki basics: editing article content, referencing your additions, keeping a neutral point of view, plus tips on playing well with others. As you advance, you attain badges related to specific topics you've covered and Wikipedia concepts you've mastered. When you're done playing through this tutorial, you're ready to be bold and begin editing.

After this seven-mission adventure is complete, your Wikipedia journey has only begun. Welcome to the community. Happy editing!
