Welcome to Pikipedia! We're really glad you decided to help out. You can start right away: if you see any little thing that could be improved, work on it! We appreciate any kind of constructive edit, from a humble typo fix to an entirely new page.

How to edit

Information you should know to edit on Pikipedia.

Beginners

If you're new to wikis, there are some pages that will help you understand how everything works.

Getting help

If you have any questions, beginner or advanced, there are a few easy ways to get answers:

Policies and guidelines

If you're comfortable with editing wikis, we ask you to please read and follow Pikipedia's policies and guidelines, so that all articles can be consistent and high quality.

What to do

There are three main ways to help Pikipedia:

  • Read articles and contribute with improvements (rewording a sentence, adding an image, performing a tagged task, suggesting an idea on the talk page, etc.).
  • Pick something from the list of maintenance tasks and start working on it.
  • Find a project that is to your liking, and start helping out.

New page

To create a new page, you can just search for its name, and when the search results page tells you such an article doesn't exist, you are given the opportunity to create it. Alternatively, you may use the form below.

  • Before creating an article, consider if its topic is notable enough, and check to see if it already exists. It may be possible to cover the topic in a section of an existing article.
  • Only autoconfirmed users can create an article. If you've just made an account, you'll need to wait a day and make at least 1 edit before you can create an article.
  • Creating an article that is not about the Pikmin series will result in it being deleted. See the deletion policy for more information.
