If you have details to add to an article, just add them. We are all Reviewing Recent Changes, so don't be worried whether the details are beautifully written - rather than not have them, it's better to have them less than perfect, it gives everyone else a place to start from.

If you disagree with something, have concerns, or a question, add a discussion. If you see a discussion, add additional information you might have.

Adding a discussion to an article

  • click on the "edit" link next to the heading of the topic you want to comment on (or the edit tab at the top of the article)
  • right in the place where your question comes up, add a
{{Discussion}} 
* <replace this with your comment/question>

to add the discussion template

  • Show preview, and then save, which will
    • put the article into the category:Questions, providing a list of all articles that need review
    • add the picture Interro-01.gif, making it obvious where in the article there are concerns

How to communicate inside a discussion

  • click on the "edit" link (on the right side of the heading above the question, or at the top of the page)

Responding to a point

In the next line after the point you are responding to

  • put one more "*" than the previous comment
  • write your text
  • end it with ~~~~, which will translate into your signature and the time when you save
  • optionally, press the "Show Preview" button to see what your comment will look like
  • press the Save Page button

If there is no article for the topic you want to discuss

Make a new article and follow the instructions above.
