Writing for your Community
The first step is to request a user account. ICANNWiki Admins and Editors review each request for an account and you should be up and running quickly. People often ask what information they should provide in the "Biography" and "Other Information" sections of the request form. Your connections to or interests in ICANN, the DNS, and other aspects of Internet governance are great things to include, but above all, just be yourself and let us know who you are. (You can see other FAQs here.) As you move from editing existing articles to filling in gaps in the wiki, it's worth reviewing our guide to creating a great article. There are also examples of good articles that utilize the ICANNWiki templates.
- Basic Editing Functions in ICANNWiki
- ICANNWiki uses Wikimedia. You can learn more about Wikimedia's markup language 
- Video Tutorial
Templates provide a common information display box for companies, community members, and TLDs. These are copy-paste versions for you to put into new articles (or articles that are missing that information).
