 +''​(Note:​ Unfortunately,​ to keep spammers at bay we are not allowing public registration. Please ask, in email or in person, about a wiki editing account. This is not the same as a user for the tokyohackerspace.org site. We apologize for the inconvenience.)''​

 +'''​2) Navigate to the page you want to change and hit the "​edit"​ tab above the text part of the page.'''​
 +
 +''​Note:​ Editing a page that already exists is fairly straightforward,​ but creating a new page out of nothing can be a little unintuitive at first. ​ '''​To create a completely new page''',​ first make a link to the page you want to create somewhere else on the site using double brackets (e.g. make a specific meeting on the meeting notes page). ​ It should appear red, indicating that no page by that name exists yet.  Then click that link - if you're logged in, the wiki should prompt you to make a new page at that location. ​ Voila! ​ (In other words...link to new content then create the new content, as opposed to create new content then link to new content.)
 +
 +
 +'''​3) Write some stuff.'''​
 +
 +''​Note:​ You don't need to know wikicode (the formatting markup, almost like a quick and dirty html) to write something - text and line breaks are sufficient to get many points across.''​
 +
 +If you want to make it look a bit snazzier, here are some formatting guides:
 +* Mediawiki'​s official guidelines (mediawiki is what runs wikipedia and all wikis that look like it): http://​www.mediawiki.org/​wiki/​Help:​Formatting
 +* A much easier, more condensed newbie guide (thanks, TMBG geeks!):
 +** http://​tmbw.net/​wiki/​How_To_Edit
 +** http://​tmbw.net/​wiki/​Basic_Wiki_Formatting
 +
 +
 +'''​4) Hit "Save Page" at the bottom to publish changes.'''​
 +
 +''​Note:​ The preview button next to "Save Page" is very useful for seeing how your page will look before you officially publish it.''​
