How to help

Welcome! Please help us document the world of UCIP!

What is LCARS?

LCARS is a wiki for UCIP and it makes collaboration easy. Many people are improving its articles with changes, all of which are recorded on article histories and recent changes.

See the LCARS:About for more information on the history and vision of UCIP.

What can I do?

There are plenty of areas that are still in need of more information:

How do I edit?

The content on this site can be edited through any internet browser, with no additional software. For technical help on how to edit, consult any of these links:

We have a sandbox that users can use for experimental edits.

When editing an article, if your changes are only limited to a small section, it is a best practice to use the edit link of the enclosing section. If your changes involve several different sections, consider using the edit link at the top of the page instead of editing one section at a time.

Try to use "Show Preview" to check or verify your changes before saving. There's also an option for saving as a minor edit for small or trivial changes.

What can I edit?

Don't be afraid to make an edit. Any user can edit almost any article and we encourage you to be bold! If you see content, grammar, or even just formatting that you think can be improved, go ahead and make it better.

Most of our articles follow a specific set of Style and formatting guidelines to give similar articles some consistency. We encourage users to browse the guidelines or glance through similar articles. Of course, please do not let this deter you from adding useful information - someone else will take care of the formatting.

Remember, you can't break LCARS (but please, don't try to). Anything can be fixed or improved later. So go ahead, edit an article and help make this the best source of information on UCIP!

Common mistakes

  1. Copying content directly from other wikis
  2. Assuming that this wiki follows the conventions of other wikis
    This wiki has its own policies, guidelines, and style and formatting guidelines.
  3. Assuming control of submitted content.
