   - Create or modify a wikipage through one of the three main sections. ​ In each section [[saberwiki:​swcreators]],​ [[saberwiki:​eucreators]],​ and [[saberwiki:​nccreators]] there is a new page button. ​ This button can be used to automatically create a page that will show up in that sections index. ​ It will take you to a wiki editor that will be preloaded with a template. ​ I suggest that you follow this template the best you can.  If you need to leave things blank that's fine, the power of wiki is that others can add to your page.  The format for adding a new page is "​Firstname Lastname"​ of the saber creator((Actual saber creator, not just the owner, unless creator is not known then current owner is acceptable)) without the quotes. ​ In instances where the creator is only known by a single name or has a additional names, those can be entered. ​ It's difficult to change a page name without deleting everything and recreating it, so choose wisely as this will be used as the main index for that particular creator. ​ Images should also be uploaded within the editor but there will be another section on just how the images work.  You may also feel free to edit any particular page you see in any way you believe that would make it better. ​ If you want to add images to a page you can add them to the media manager accessed through the "Add images or other files" in the wiki editor. ​ Again more on the media manager later. ​ Please make sure that all statements you make about any particular canon item are backed up with a source.   - Create or modify a wikipage through one of the three main sections. ​ In each section [[saberwiki:​swcreators]],​ [[saberwiki:​eucreators]],​ and [[saberwiki:​nccreators]] there is a new page button. ​ This button can be used to automatically create a page that will show up in that sections index. ​ It will take you to a wiki editor that will be preloaded with a template. ​ I suggest that you follow this template the best you can.  If you need to leave things blank that's fine, the power of wiki is that others can add to your page.  The format for adding a new page is "​Firstname Lastname"​ of the saber creator((Actual saber creator, not just the owner, unless creator is not known then current owner is acceptable)) without the quotes. ​ In instances where the creator is only known by a single name or has a additional names, those can be entered. ​ It's difficult to change a page name without deleting everything and recreating it, so choose wisely as this will be used as the main index for that particular creator. ​ Images should also be uploaded within the editor but there will be another section on just how the images work.  You may also feel free to edit any particular page you see in any way you believe that would make it better. ​ If you want to add images to a page you can add them to the media manager accessed through the "Add images or other files" in the wiki editor. ​ Again more on the media manager later. ​ Please make sure that all statements you make about any particular canon item are backed up with a source.

 You can always create your own section as well.  This is only a starting point to get the site directed, but there are many other aspects of lightsaber lore that will show up on the root wiki index. ​ Feel free to add to those as well.  Practically any page can be modified on the wiki portion of this site. You can always create your own section as well.  This is only a starting point to get the site directed, but there are many other aspects of lightsaber lore that will show up on the root wiki index. ​ Feel free to add to those as well.  Practically any page can be modified on the wiki portion of this site.
