There's also the [[How to write an article]] page to read up on formatting for this wiki in particular, and the backup wiki to dump a copy of whatever article(s) you write (or you can ask the above admin to do it for you, although you will not get a credit for it in your history if you have an account) is [http://vectrexmuseum.com/wiki/index.php?title=Main_Page here]. Articles have a 60 day time period to be copied onto the backup wiki until the founder puts a copy there himself.
