Welcome to the LessWrong wiki. I'm not an admin, I'm just being [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Be_bold_in_editing_articles bold](I know, wrong wiki but I think it's a good concept to import here).
 
I thought I'll start the ball roling by writing something on this page.
 
  
So here are some question to the admins:
+
==New to wikis?==
 +
* If you are new to wikis, you may want to read the '''[[Help:Tutorial 1|tutorial]]'''.
 +
* There is some advice on getting this wiki started at '''[[Help:Starting this wiki]]'''.
 +
* A list of most help pages can be found on '''[[Help:Contents]]''' and in '''[[:Category:Help]]'''.
  
-What do you want us(non admins) to do?
+
==How to help out==
 +
* If you want to help but you're not sure where to start, try improving the various '''[[:Category:Article stubs|stub]]''' articles by adding content.
 +
* Another helpful activity would be to check the list of '''[[Special:WantedPages|wanted pages]]''' for frequently linked-to articles that don't exist yet.
 +
* To follow the changes to this wiki, and to look out for new users and edits use '''[[Special:RecentChanges|recent changes]]'''.
 +
* You can find a list of useful templates on '''[[:Category:Templates]]''', some of which are documented on '''[[{{ns:project}}:Templates]]'''.
 +
* If you need help editing, you could start with '''[[Help:Editing]]''' or '''[[Help:Tutorial 1|the tutorial]]'''.
  
-Is there any work to be done for the wiki other than adding articles?
+
==Want to discuss stuff?==
 +
* If you want to discuss anything specific to an article, you can use '''[[Help:Talk page|the talk page]]''' for that article.
 +
* For more general discussions you can use the Discussion tab of this page, or a Forum if the forums have been set up.
  
-What ideas qualify as being article worthy?
+
==Things to do==

; Useful activities
 +
* Help expand some '''[[:Category:Article stubs|article stubs]]'''.
 +
* '''[[Special:ShortPages|Locate]]''' and '''[[Template:Stub|mark]]''' pages that need expanding as [[:Category:Article stubs|article stubs]].
 +
* Create links to some '''[[Special:LonelyPages|orphaned pages]]'''.
 +
* Upload and add some images! Visit '''[[Special:Upload]]'''. Add them to a category too, like <nowiki>[[</nowiki>[[:Category:Images]]<nowiki>]]</nowiki>.
 +
* Write a new article that's on the '''[[Special:WantedPages|the wanted list]]'''!
 +
* Fix any '''[[Special:DoubleRedirects|double redirects]]''' by redirecting the first page to the third page.
 +
* Check for '''[[Special:BrokenRedirects|broken redirects]]''' and either mark them for deletion or find a more appropriate target.
 +
* Consider splitting up very '''[[Special:LongPages|long pages]]''' into different pages or subpages.
 +
* Create some links on '''[[Special:DeadendPages|dead end pages]]'''.
 +
* ''Add more...''
  
-Do ideas have to come from OB and LW or can we add eg. Paul Graham stuff?
