How to use this wiki [Partial edit]

* Editing is easy! If you know of information that should be added or changed, click the "Edit page" button and add it. The formatting conventions are pretty easy to understand.    
 * For second-hand and uncertain information, the result of last year's discussion seems to be that you should add the information, but identify it as such. Check last year's wiki for examples.    
 * Do keep in mind that edits and discussion page posts will be tied to your IP address. If you're concerned about identifying yourself, post from home or a public terminal. On the other hand, it's not like the whole world doesn't already know you're o

n the market.

* The discussion page is pretty unsatisfactory. Other disciplines have different discussion forums (see, for example, Link Classics). If someone has a better solution than the discussion page here, please make a suggestion.

In case of vandalism (it's already happened once) don't panic. Click on the history page. Click on the latest pre-vandalism revision. Click 'Edit' and save. The vandalism is now gone. (You may need to reload the page to see the changes.)
