Need help with making a Wikipedia article
I've edited/created anything for Wikipedia, so I need a little help.

Where do I go? How do I make the format correct? I'm sure there are more questions, but I'll tackle those as I come to them.

Open Wikipedia. On the left menu column under "Interaction", click "Community portal". You will find everything you need.

Thanks, Chas... but I must be dense. All I see are editing tools and tips... no creating links.

RE: Need help with making a Wikipedia article
Welp... never mind...

Wikipedia Wrote:Articles about yourself, your friends, your website, a band you're in, your teacher, a word you made up, or a story you wrote If you are worthy of inclusion in the encyclopedia, let
someone else add an article for you. Putting your friends in an
encyclopedia may seem like a nice surprise or an amusing joke, but
articles like this are likely to be removed. In this process, feelings may be hurt and you may be blocked
from editing if you repeatedly make attempts to re-create the article.
These things can be avoided by a little forethought on your part. The
article may remain if you have enough humility to make it neutral and
you really are notable, but even then it's best to submit a draft for
approval and consensus of the community instead of just posting it up, since unconscious biases may still exist of which you may not be aware.
Anyone else want to create a "KC's Law" page?

RE: Need help with making a Wikipedia article
Just wondering, what if person A believes this is correct, but person B disagrees, what gets put into the article? What if it's a back and forth battle of editing?

Sorry, no clue on wikipedia.
