|The path to a Featured Article|
Clicking the "Create page" button takes you to an edit page where you can enter the new text, so long as you have set up an account. The edit page also has a link for Editing help, in case you need it. Other helpful links include Help:Filling the page and Help:Editing. You do not have to always return to this page to create a new article. New pages can also be started by following a link to a non-existent page, which likewise leads to an edit page (see Starting a page through the URL, below). Users are encouraged to be bold when starting a new article.
When creating a new article, you should bear in mind the following:
- The title that you choose is important, as this will be the title of your new article.
- Un-doing mistakes is rarely easier than avoiding them, so it is always a good idea to do a little homework first (see General principles below).
- Remember what Wikipedia is and what Wikipedia is not.
- If you just want to experiment, use the sandbox first.
